So having used this for a bit, just me, an adult, for lunch at work. I usually carry it inside by hand and put it in the fridge.. the paint is flaking off in droves. I've used it maybe 4 or 5 times total since I have other boxes I use. I contacted Lunchbots and they offered to replace it with a stainless cover. Didn't like that option, I want orange! But despite asking nicely I got a stainless cover anyway that I'll probably never use. (I have since purchased a Dots cover for it, so who's the sucker now!) The disappointing part was the CS rep told me that my pictures showed "normal wear" which isn't the case at all. It gets carried by hand (not banging around in a bag) and washed by hand with a sponge and soapy water and dried with a soft towel. It's not normal wear and I do have 3 other lunchbots boxes, none of which show any wear. If I compare the lids, the other 3 boxes have a more matte finish to the paint, but the orange one that's peeling is super shiny. I have decided not to bother with the lb cust service since when I brought this up they told me that the "bad paint job" things "you're reading on amazon" (I had never mentioned amazon in all of our chatting.) were from an older batch - but who's to say amazon doesn't have old stock laying around? The texture of this paint is obviously different. Between this, and the customer service, and the flip top lids of the other containers, I'm a little disappointed with this brand. I still like the box a lot though.
As long as I've known about Lunchbots I've always wanted one of these so when I got some birthday money I bought a duo and a quad. Now I want the uno and trio to round out my collection, perhaps because I'm nuts.
Before it arrived I amused myself by reading reviews and I was slightly worried it would be too small to be useful, but it is not at all too small. I read a lot of reviews complaining you can't get a sandwich in it. To me this is a bento style box, and not a typical american diet sandwich and potato chips style box. That said, if you cut your sandwich in half you could easily stand the 2 sides on end in one of the compartments with a little room to spare, even. Maybe I've gotten really good at getting a lot of food into small spaces because I have 3 kids that use a pretty small lunchbox and I feel like I do give them a lot of food. This is a lot deeper than I was expecting, and a lot nicer than I thought it'd be as far as the thickness of the steel and the overall heft of the box. It's not good for overly wet foods, true.. and the divider is not "waterproof" (neither is the lid.) I guess there could be a concern of not being able to get it totally clean but I'm not someone who's bothered by thoughts like that, and so far it hasn't been a problem to clean it. The only thing I don't like about it is that you can see slight bumps on the bottom where they tacked/welded the divider in. I don't know anything about whether that could have been avoided or not. As the box gets scuffed up it's more obvious. But I don't really look at the bottom. My food tends to spill out if I flip it upside down mid-meal. I will update this review if I have any problems with the paint flaking off the lid. However I don't ever put it in the dishwasher. I have a bunch of things that I don't put in the dishwasher so washing at least the lid by hand doesnt' bother me. If you have hard water you'll have to dry it out completely or you'll get water marks.
UPDATE: My review above was for the older, more ovalish container. The newer mie rectangular box is not as good. The welds aren't as nice but are holding well, but more annoying is that the paint comes off badly. The newer one looks twice as old as the old one, which has 99.5% of the paint still.
I was so excited to receive these lunch containers, as they looked like a great, non-plastic container for my kids. I'll cut to the chase - the lids will not stay on. I don't know about your kids, but mine put their zip-up lunch bags into their back packs and they gets jostled around between home and the time they open them for lunch. After the third day that both kids came home with a mess from a prematurely opened lid, I gave up. These are all going back. Not worth the money if the lid won't even stay on.
I must be honest I was completely shocked by the size, especially since the product is made in the USA! I actually burst out laughing when I saw it. Definitely not big enough for a sandwich unless you get the one without divisions. I have learned to adapt though and it is really nice for apples and carrots and nuts etc.All in all a great product. Just don't expect a normal lunch box size, it is a lot smaller!
As a follow-up to my comments above, I also contacted the company directly regarding the paint chipping issue. I inquired if they sold the lids separately, so that I could up grade to the non-coated version...they have shipped me the lids free of charge.
