This is a 5 compartment stainless steel lunchbox. That means, it is durable, tough, easy to clean and also very attractive. Like all Lunchbots (I have a few) they wash really well and stay looking like new for a very long time. There is no paint to chip off, no designs to fade and no plastic to break. And no clasps to fiddle with.
If you’re looking for a more environmentally friendly and plastic free lunchbox, this is a great one to start with. If you’re looking to put a sandwich in, try the Lunchbots Bento Trio, it does the job!
Now, these are not leakproof, but they lay no claim to being leakproof, so they are honest. Dry food works well in them and you can pop in a leakproof dipper if you need wet foods.
I wash ours in the dishwasher, it comes out new every time, and normally it also comes out dry which is a big plus on mornings when I have forgotten to wash it and pop it in at 8am!
They have brought out colourful snap on dots for the top of these to make them more appealing to, so look forward to seeing those arriving on our shores in shortly after their US release in January.
It’s an uncomplicated lunchbox, opening and closing are easy and the lid separates from the base, meaning you’ve only got 2 parts. Being smaller for it’s volume it is able to fit in most standard coolers. It would also appeal to older kids, teens and adults as it is clean, fresh and gimmick free.
Cons: Price. It’s $45.95, but you’ll get a lot of wear and tear out of this lunchbox. It’s stainless steel, so that exciting, but snap on dot lids are coming next year!
I was sent this lunchbox to review, but was not paid to complete the review. All of the opinions are mine.
