For all other info, head back to the review table.
Pros:If you buy one of these you'll probably never need another lunchbox.
As stainless steel lunchboxes go, this is the most the largest and most expensive. It has 5 compartments, two dippers which are made leakproof when the lid is closed ans secured on the lunchbox and is perfect for inventive bento lunches.
Because it is plain stainless it washes amazingly and comes out clean and fresh everytime. You can buy magnets to go on the lunchbox (heaps pf different designs to suit different ages and interests) to pretty it up as well as matching bags. The packs that Biome sell include the magnets and the matching bags. Ideally you will also need an ice pack too.
This lunchbox was easy to open for even Master 3 which was a bonus. He didn't even need any instruction, just flipped down the clasp and off he went! Being constructed out of food safe stainless steel means that it's going to take a few bumps and scrapes too. There's no risk of contamination from plastics as well if that's something you're concerned about.
Planet box are all about the eco friendly lunch, so you can buy replacement magnets, replacement dippers, repleacement seals for the dippers, just in case anything goes awol. A full sandwich doesn't quite fit flat, but could be overlapped.
Cons: The price, but I guess you get what you pay for. Effectively, with its solid construction it could see a child through primary and secondary school and beyond. It doesn't quite fit a full sandwich. Plus very heavy at 704grams, but all of that is solid construction!
I was sent this lunchbox to review, but was not paid to complete the review. All of the opinions are mine. This post contains affiliate links.
