I’ve been sharing lunch recipes online for a long time, and packing lunches for even longer. I’ve tested many types of lunchboxes through the years and settled on 5 favorite lunch containers. Today, I’m sharing all about LunchBots. But first, see my top five picks, in this review video.
When choosing a lunch container there are many things to consider to ensure that it works for everyone in the family. The perfect lunchbox should be:
- Durable – preschoolers are hard on lunch boxes!
- Dishwasher safe – I don’t have time to hand wash every day!
- Not too “cute” – for teens or my husband
LunchBots lunch containers tick off everything on my list. They have a variety stainless steel container options that can meet all the needs of a family of lunch-packers. And if you are packing salad dressing or dips you can use their leak-proof condiment containers. They’re so handy!
Which Lunch Box is Better Plastic or Steel?
As you saw in the video, I use a variety of different materials for lunch containers. But there are a lot of benefits to using Stainless Steel. LunchBots are BPA–free and made from food-grade stainless steel.
They are 100% reusable and 100% recyclable. I also love all the fun color options there are for the lids. This is great way to express personality through the lunch box, withought getting too “cute” for those teen lunches.
Whether you use an Uno, Duo, Trio, or Quad, the possibilities are endless for great lunches for the entire family.
I like these steel lunch boxes too because they are great for the environment. But of course, you’ll want to pack only your cold lunches in this box since you can’t pop them in the microwave.
LunchBot Trio & Quad
The LunchBots Trio and Quad, specifically, are great for kids’ lunches because it allows you to divide your food into three or four compartments. You can easily pack Bento-style lunches without the tediousness of cutting food into cute shapes. They give you more capabilities to be creative, and to keep food from touching for those picky eaters in your family!
Each space provides enough room to pack nutritious fruits, vegetables, protein, and more. Different size containers for different size appetites—perfect! LunchBots also come in handy for keeping dinner leftovers in. With their spacious sections, you can easily store tonight’s dinner in them to enjoy for lunch the next day or even to use as ingredients in your next meal. This is especially useful when you’re meal prepping!
Avoid the use of wasteful baggies, foil, and plastic wraps! Instead, start packing in these Bots that will keep your food not only from getting squished, but are environmentally friendly as well. Did I mention they are sturdy? The ones in our MOMables test kitchen are 3 years old and still feel and function like new!
