1: The product is now manufactured in China and has been since 2002 when Aladdin, the company that owned the Stanley brand, went out of business thereby closing their US production facility in Nashville, TN. The brand was then purchased by a company called PMI who resumed production in China and saved the Stanley Thermos brand from evisceration.
2: In 2009 for many reasons, PMI eliminated the charcoal packing (also referred to as Char-Vac) in the outer wall of the thermos, while increasing the thickness of the steel exterior casing to compensate for the loss of durability. The unit is now lighter, yet still serves the same purpose and retains it's original efficacy. It also retains it's lifetime warranty.
3: PMI produces millions of these units per year, and like any other mass produced product, there will be a certain percentage of defects (i.e. vacuum seals that didn't seal) that result from manufacturing. If you happen to have a problem with your unit, 99% of the time, it's an internal failure of the vacuum seal. Call or email Stanley, and they will send you a new one if you simply take some pictures with your smart phone and email them to the company. You don't even have to send the old bottle back.
Now on to the review. I never owned a US made Aladdin Stanley and I never owned a pre-2009 PMI-Stanely thermos, so I can't offer a direct comparison. What I can say is this thermos is fantastic. I don't even put hot water in the thermos before I pour my pot of coffee in there and it stays so hot that I have to add ice water at just so I can drink it. That's the performance that was advertised, and that's what I received. I bought the 1.1qt model from wally world a week ago and have been using it for my soup. This 2qt model is for my 12 cups of coffee I take with me for the day (whether I work or don't work for the day, so I've got the tag team rocking out everyday. I've got the big 2qt for my caffeine and the 1.1qt for my hot & hearty soup, so apparently I'm unstoppable now!
Anyhow, the handle is nice and functional and appears to be an improvement over the Stanley 1.1qt thermos I bought years ago which had a very sloppy handle. It rattled and just was poorly designed. This one is nice and smooth, so apparently they fixed that issue. The cap screws on smooth and tightens down firmly. It unscrews without a problem and I have absolutely no complaints at all whatsoever.
I'm a working man and I feel confident spending my money with Stanley knowing that if I'm having a tough month financially, and my thermos stops working, I know I'll never pay to fix that problem again for the rest of my life.
Opportunities for improvement:
1: PMI should offer a throwback bottle that revives the old char-vac technology that provided the weight and long life durability of the older units. If people want them and are willing to pay substantially more to have one, why aren't you offering it and taking their money? Odd business decision in my opinion, but what do I know, I'm just a consumer.
2: A larger drinking cup would be more appropriate for the size of the 2qt unit. I personally prefer my actual coffee mug, so I just pour from my thermos into that and I'm good to go. I know others may prefer to use the cup that's included, and it'll work, but you'll be pouring a lot of cups to get through 2 quarts with that little thing.
3: My 1.1 qt bottle has a sweet metal stamp on the front of the bottle and my 2qt has a lame sticker. Please stamp the 2qt just like you do for the 1.1qt. A sticker is not built for life, a steel stamp imprinted into the outer wall of the jacket is.
All in all, this is a great thermos at a great price. If you need to keep soup or any liquid hot, this baby gets the job done.

I would gladly pay $30 or even $35 for the same item Made in the USA. This is a perfect example of the exporting of American expertise & the ongoing gutting of the American working/skilled manufacturing job sector.
Back to the vaccuum bottle itself: Holds lots of liquid, wide mouth easy to insert ice cubes, best-designed pour-through cap I've seen so far. Unlike a lot of pour-through caps that have spring-loaded valves (clogged, long-term durability issues,) or "channels" cut through the main sealing threads (position-sensitive, easy to have the stopper fall out & lose the entire bottle of hot beverage all over the car if one is not careful) -- unlike those designs, this Stanley pour-through cap is engineered with 2 separate seals and a 100% positive locking system, i.e. you have to TRY to unscrew the stopper all the way to remove it. It will not fall out when you are using the pour-through mode.
Bonuses: Unlike a lot of vaccum bottle makers, Stanley stocks & sells spare parts (caps, stoppers, handles) going back a decade or more.
Handle is plastic but very sturdy & in my opinion job-site ready. (I work in construction.)
Only slight criticism: The TOP of the pour-through stopper, where you twist to close / open it, is a *little bit* flexy. They could've made the plastic material 30% thicker there for an absolutely solid grip. But this is a minor nit-pick, one gets used to flexi-ness and it doesn't affect daily use.
