I’ve always been fond of Lunchbots and the products they make. The more I learn about materials, the more certain I am that storing food in non-plastic containers is the best way to go. So when Lunchbots offered to allow me to test out their new stainless steel Lunchbot Rounds I was really excited. They come is a set – 16oz and an 8oz stainless steel round container with a silicone seal under the lid to keep things tight in there.
The first test was the lunch box test. My son can do a number on things and I was happy to see that they were easy for him to open and close at school (he’s 5 in case anyone is counting). They hold any number of things and their sizes lend themselves to many combination’s. I’ve packed grapes, blueberries, strawberries, apple slices, watermelon in both and I can say with certainty that when the cap is screwed on they do not leak. The second test was the beach test. I used them for dry snacks and fruit. The opening is easy for kids to fit their hands in and they close up easily. They wash easily too.
I loved using these for our food and snacks and they aren’t heavy which is ideal when you’re carrying a bag full of steel containers for food. They are light despite their size. My wish would be for a version with a double wall for insulation (for packing food meant to stay cold or warm) but I can imagine that would add to the weight. I thought the lack of insulation would be an issue but it hasn’t been, considering I pack things in a cooler or my son’s insulated lunch bag anyway. (A FUEL bag if anyone is wondering)
Lunchbots has all their products tested by a 3rd party and have come back certified as lead-free. That’s peace of mind! No plastic to be concerned with and no leaching risks. Plus they look great and function well. I’m a fan!
