Do you have to totally remove the conventional stopper to pour? That'll lead to a fair bit of heat loss. Normal flasks only require one to undo a couple of turns and then you can pour.

That does sound like a bad design. Even the cheap ikea ones have a bypass, you you only have to turn half a turn...

That is surprising. My very good cheapy IKEA ones have pop up lids, but a 20 year old one I still have had a normal stopper that you could pour through after a a couple of turns. Odd they didn't do that.
