I have used my insulated food carrier for over 15 years, so I guess last night's explosion in my microwave can't really be considered a serious problem. In fact, I love this system and use it very often. The heated core really keeps a hot casserole hot for quite a long time. However, beware - when it overheats, first the cover puffs up alarmingly. I've observed this several times in the past. Last night, however, multitasking (like getting dressed to go to the party I'd made the lasagne for) caused disaster in the form of an exploded cover. I have heated it that length of time dozens of times, but maybe the cover eventually gets weaker? At any rate, try to keep your eye on it when you are heating the core - if it puffs, turn the microwave off immediately and remove the core. On the really plus side - there was absolutely no mess in my oven, and I went ahead and used the heated element to keep my lasagne warm last night!

This Hot Pack is really great! It stays Hot forever. It is much thicker than the one it replaced and seems to be made of thicker covering. The last potluck I attended I used it to keep my food item hot and when I left the potluck for home my dish was still hot, after 4 hours.

I purchased this as a replacement for the heat pads that came with my Pyrex Portables several years ago. The original ones were just worn out. These work great. They are slightly larger than the original ones but still fit in the intended slots.

I've re-ordered these hot pads several times over the past years. They are durable, heat retaining, can even be used as a heating pad. They are super.

This item was purchased to replace the one I left in the microwave for too long. It's identical to the one that came with my dishware and it works great as long as you read the instructions and don't leave it in the microwave too long like I did.

happy with product, does the job of holding the heat in our travel container. Original did not last very long.

These hot packs really do the job when it comes to keeping food hot for a long time. I use mine at least once a month and won't bring a hot dish any where with out useing one of these hot packs to be sure the food will have remained hot when I get to my destination.

I think it will probably be exactly what i needed, but it was delivered with no directions, so I have no idea how long to heat it up.

I bought this so I could keep my home made lunches hot when I take them to work. I only have 30 minute lunch break and waiting for food to heat in the microwave oven eats up valuable time. Based on the other reviews, I thought this would be the item. I have only used it a few times, and it has not held the heat the way I anticipated. I pack right before I leave for work so the pack has to keep my food hot for 5 hours ... maybe it is the length of time .. but my food is just above tepid by the time I take my break. In addition to the aesthetics of warm food, I am also concerned about the safety factor. I have followed the directions on the pack about how to properly heat it, and my meal is piping hot when I pack it, yet the pack does not seem that hot once heated as recommended. My lunch tote is lightly insulated so I thought that may be the problem. I tried packing dishtowels around the insides of the tote hoping it would hod the heat longer but that didn't work. I have given up on using it for hot lunches but I will use it to keep dishes warm when we have potlucks. The pack itself is covered with a sturdy material so I expect it to last a long time.
