Stainless Steel Lunch Box #Review #LunchPalHealthyLunchBox


     My family goes a lot of places in the warm months.  We go to the beach, playgrounds, parks, relative's houses, sports events... we're everywhere.  It makes sense that we should bring our own lunches because eating out every day is pretty expensive.  If we don't plan right, it takes up a lot of our gas budget and makes us have to cut back on things we want to do.

     So I've been collecting lots of lunch containers that I can bring with us this year on our adventures.  One of my most recent boxes is this healthy bento lunch box by LunchPal.  There's a few things I love about it and a few things I don't so much, so let me tell you about it:

     First of all, it's really cute.  It's rounded and has an adorable two part fold out handle that's really comfortable to hold and adds to the look when folded down.  I love that it has a handle, most lunch boxes don't.

     I also love the pressure lock on the top.  It holds the lid on tight when pressed down, and releases the lid when popped up.  It helps keep it leak-proof and creates less opportunities for splatter when opening the lid while hot foods are in it.

     One thing I'm on the fence about is the stainless steel part.  Although it's healthy and easy to clean, it eliminates the possibility of microwaving, which is a pretty big con I think since the container itself doesn't keep foods hot.  I placed hot food in it and an hour later it was barely warmer than luke warm.  It was a bummer for sure.  And since the outside is plastic, you can't place it in an oven either.  So you're pretty screwed on that part.

     Another bummer was that the lid never seemed to go on perfectly the first time.  In order to lock it, I often have to adjust it just so, which can be a pain.  But if you like cold lunches and are in the market for a new box, this one could be a great one for you.
