How does it work in the microwave?
Yes, you read that right, these steel boxes are microwave-safe. We know that everyone was taught that metal cannot go in the microwave, but it’s only partly true. There are definitely some metals that should not be placed in a microwave, however, this does not include the high-quality stainless steel that we use. This type of steel, combined with the smooth and rounded shape of the steel boxes, means they will not cause sparking and are safe to use in the microwave.
Is there anything I need to know about microwaving these boxes?
Yes, there's a few things to consider when microwaving these boxes, from both a safety perspective and also to prolong the life of the product:
High-quality 18/8 stainless steel used in combination with a smooth rounded surface means these meal prep sets are microwave-safe.
Vacuum sealed lid lock is 100% leak proof, and keeps your food fresher for longer.
Both the boxes and their lids have been designed with neat storage in mind. Different sizes will nest, same sizes will stack.
Not only are these boxes microwave-safe, but they’re also dishwasher, freezer and oven-safe (base only).
The single-walled stainless steel is thin but tough, which means it’s lighter and easy to transport, but also won’t buckle under pressure.
The lid seals are fully removable and there’s no hidden nooks or crannies so it’s super easy to keep these boxes clean.
These sets have been designed specifically for meal prep. Batch cooking helps you stay healthy, fight food waste and save money.
We launched our first lunch box design in 2010 and this helped inspire and ignite the whole marketplace for food on-the-go. At the time, although the Japanese were using beautiful bento boxes, the West was making do with standard waxy plastic food containers. Today, the market is transformed and far more aware of the eco, health and financial benefits of taking your own food with you. So much so, that we are now seeing a growing trend of people meal prepping and batch cooking. This might be people following a certain diet for health or fitness, trying to live more sustainably or simply saving money. From a design standpoint, we saw this as a great opportunity to create a range of food containers with different volumes and shapes to suit the individual user and food type. The design is simple and minimal; stripped back to the bare essentials to allow it to be competitively priced but remaining truly functional. The simple push button opening vacuum seal keeps food fresh and is super functional to open/close without bulky clips. The stainless steel base is surprisingly light but durable and innovative in relation to being microwave/oven/freezer-safe. This is the perfect design for meal-preppers and batch cookers who want to take their food on-the-go or store for later use.
