These characteristics tend to make the vessels safer and user-friendly.

There are a few differences in some dewars, for example portable dewars must have a tough construction and casters and are intended for low-pressure transport. Most dewars come with a loose-fitting dust cap over the outlet to stop moisture from the atmosphere from blocking the neck. This also allows the gas formed from the vaporized liquid to escape.
