Ikea vs. Stelton – 1L Thermos

By Roni Brunn | November 9, 2010 | News

The 1L vacuum thermos is a classic from Stelton.  Designed by Erik Magnussen, it stands 12″ high and is made out of ABS plastic with a glass liner.

Ikea’s Behövd thermos also stands at 12″ and similarly fills up to a liter in its glass liner.  Its shell is polypropylene, though, and it was designed by Chris Martin and Magnus Elebäck.

Behövd comes in off white and black; the Stelton comes in a huge range of colors in both matte and gloss finishes.  The Stelton thermos comes with two tops: one for easy access and one for secure travel.  Ikea’s version has one.

The Stelton costs $70 at Fitzsu, the Ikea is $7.99 at Ikea.

I got two Behövds in off white this weekend – one for decaf and one for regular.  Gearing up for new year’s day brunch.
