Despite their different materials, the elegant, slightly waisted PIU thermos jug of high-gloss plastic and the equally waisted PIU porcelain tableware with matching glassware exhibit a homogeneous quality.

Thanks to its intelligent plop-top closure with silicone membrane, the thermos jug can be opened and closed using just one hand.

Whether for conference table or dining table, you can rely on PIU’s vacuum glass insert to maintain the temperature of hot or cold drinks.

With the matching, stainless steel tea strainer insert, the thermos jug also makes a perfectly adequate teapot.
