The thermos jug was invented by the Scottish physicist and chemist Sir James Dewar in 1892 and is also called Dewar's physics bottle after the inventor. The first commercial thermos was manufactured in 1904 when a German company, Thermos GmbH , was founded. Thermos , their trademark for their bottles / jugs, is still a registered trademark in some countries, but was declared a generic trademark in the United States in 1963, as it was a daily synonym with vacuum bottles / jugs in general.
The decanter originally comes from Arabic "yarrāfa" ( Danish : "drinking pot"), but has been imported into Danish via Spanish "garrafa" and French "carafa". In Danish, the word became "carafe" and "carafe", but under the influence of Danish words such as " waffle ", " fork " and " table " the word developed into the current "carafe".
