I’ve written about Wean Green before, because I love food storage options that don’t rely solely on plastic. So when The Glass Baby Bottle sent me a sample of Wean Green’s new Sandwich Cubes I was anxious to try them out. Wean Green is most well known for their cute little glass Cubes which are perfect for storing baby food. These were naturally the next step.
I love how these work and have put them to good use here at home. Each set comes with two sandwich cubes which each hold about 16.5 ounces. The lid, made of BPA free plastic with a silicone seal, snaps into place securely to prevent any leaks or spills. I’ve used these cubes for leftovers, soup, olives, macaroni, fruit, and for my husband, jalepenos. They don’t leak in the fridge and are small enough to be portable in any lunch sack or lunch box. Glass is a great choice for food since it doesn’t leach chemicals into your foods and won’t hold on to any flavors. They wash clean in the dishwasher and are ready to use.
I wish they would name these something else because a regular sized sandwich doesn’t fit in these. You’d have to cut it square or make mini sandwiches. But it’s the perfect size for a little salad, soup, fruit, cheese, or snacks. I even used to to transport a yogurt and fruit parfait without any issues. I was afraid to send it to school with my 5 year old… I could just see glass shattering all over the cafeteria… but I would definitely use this to tote food in my diaper bag or gym bag. Very handy and a cute size up from the baby food cubes. They have bowls too (which look like the perfect size for kids). The price point seems a little high for a set of 2 glass containers but they are cute and very functional, just not for a sandwich. I could totally fit a slab of cheesecake in there though… hmmm.
Get them: You can pick these up at The Glass Baby Bottle in their signature lid colors (each comes with a set of 2) Blueberry, Carrot, Pea and Raspberry.
