Lunchbots Rounds Food Storage Review

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 combinations.  I’ve packed grapes, blueberries, strawberries, apple slices, and 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!
