Total article view: 545
The credit of thermos invention goes to Scottish chemist and physicist "Sir James Dewar". He was best known for his work with low-temperature phenomena. Born in Kincardine, Scotland, and educated at the University of Edinburgh, Sir James Dewar invented the vacuum flask in 1892, which is also known today as the thermos. Before thermos, it was also referred to as Dewar flask. Its name changed from vacuum flask to thermos because a German company "Thermos GmbH" (first company to release vacuum flasks commercially;started in 1904) made it so popular that people started to refer to vacuum flask as thermos. The vacuum flask was not manufactured for commercial/home use until 1904.
