ECOlunchbox Three-in-One Stainless Steel Food Container Set

ECOlunchbox Three-in-One Stainless Steel Food Container Set

Why should lunchtime mean toxic plastics and mountains of waste? Try stainless steel, the back-to-basics approach to lunch. You won’t consume harmful BPA, PVC, vinyl or lead, and the landfill won’t consume the average 4,000 pieces of waste from lunchtime alone. Safe for your family’s lunches and completely reusable, tried and true stainless steel wins again. Designed by a experienced lunch-packer and mother of two, you can be assured that ECOlunchbox will exceed your lunchtime needs. Rectangular 3-in-1 convenient nesting design prevents side dishes from mushing together, making any child or adult happy. Exceptionally Eco-friendly stainless steel lunchboxes, snack containers and more.

  • Designed by a experienced lunch-packer and mother of two, the Three in One is a nifty three piece set ideal for lunchtime.
  • The 100% stainless steel lunchbox set works great for packing a small sandwich on the bottom plus a wet and dry side dish in the top container.
  • All together when boxed up, the bento measures 4 inches wide, 5 1/2 inches long and 2 3/4 inches high and fits about 4 cups of food. The bottom section is 1 inch deep (contains about 1 1/2 cups food) and fits a small whole sandwich on sliced bread. The top layer is a bit larger at 1 1/2 inches deep (contains about 1 3/4 cups of food) and works well for bulkier food, such as chips, sliced fruit, leftover pastas or salads.
  • ECOlunchboxes are not leak proof. Damp foods work well in our containers, but because the lids don’t have any plastic gaskets or other added synthetics to create a seal, very wet foods may leak.
  • The clips are kid-tested and can be adjusted to desired stiffness. For more information about how to adjust the clips, visit our FAQ page.

I am kinda disappointed in the ECO lunchbox, so leaky and rusty. Love the design, hate the poor execution.
