UGH! They changed the design!
on November 6, 2011
We have 4 LunchBots Uno Stainless Steel Lunch Containers that we've been using for the past 2 years. They're holding up well, and we wanted a couple more to add to our stash - so we're definitely not replacing our old ones. Well, we just received the order from Amazon, and I can't tell you how DISAPPOINTED I am with the new product. They've changed the design of the container. WHY?!
What is the same between the old version and the new version is that both are all Stainless Steel bottoms & lids.
What is different:
"Rectangular" in shape
Lids were "printed" in ink with the LunchBots logo
"Oval" shaped - and SMALLER than the old Uno containers
Lids are now "embossed" with the LunchBots logo (this is the only aspect that I like better with the new design)
This new container is a smidge longer in length but much narrower in height. Our bread is more square/rectangular in shape, not oval (!!!). So, if you use "regular" sandwich bread, it won't fit well -- the tops of your bread could be too "tall."
The lids also don't snap on as easily as before -- which will be a challenge for my kids to open/close at lunch time. This is probably the most important issue, though the others are annoyances...)
This last comment would only be an issue for those who have the old set -- because the containers are a different shape & size, you can't interchange lids with the new set... which means more containers/lids to keep track of.... our household is so busy, I don't have time to fuss with that!
Just so very disappointed that the style changed.
Wish they wouldn't have tried to "fix" something that was perfectly fine.
