LunchBots Thermal 16 ounce Insulated Food Jars
18/8 Stainless - Container and Lid
Our 16oz. Insulated Thermal Containers are made with 18/8 stainless steel. Only steel and silicone ever come into contact with your food.
Unique Wide Bowl Shape
LunchBots Thermals have a wide 4.5 inch opening that makes it easy to eat right out of them, like a bowl. Great for soups, stews, chilis, and rice bowls.
Warm soup is delicious on cold days (and chilled soup is yummy on hot days). Soup is also a very healthy meal choice. Bring soup with you, wherever you go.
Top Customer Reviews
Customer service at LunchBots explained that the hole is needed to "allow for expansion of the stainless steel due to temperature changes".
We sealed the hole in the bottom of the container and the water retention no longer occurs.
(note - a hole is still there, but it is sealed from the inside). All product sold on Amazon as of 2014 has this modification and will no longer allow water in.
Please contact our customer support team at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will gladly help - we keep our customers happy.
It's got some good points: It's sturdy and it keeps a seal very well (too well -- see below). The bowl shape is convenient -- though it's not really bowl-shaped (no curved bottom); it's more cylinder-shaped. And it does hold a decent amount of food -- 16 oz capacity is generally sufficient, though if your food is irregularly shaped, like chicken cutlets, you may find it's not quite spacious enough.
But I was disappointed in several aspects of this item. First, even though I follow the instructions, my blazing hot food is lukewarm by noon. (The instructions are to warm the container with boiling water for several minutes before putting food in, and put the food in while it's still piping hot.) I have been bringing in solid food like chicken cutlets and sausages -- it's possible that if my food were liquid, or if it didn't allow for so much air in the container, it would stay hotter. Still, what's the point of a thermos if it doesn't keep your food hot for a few hours?
Also, the heat generated when you pack this with food appears to create a very powerful suction. That's nice from the "won't spill" aspect, but no so nice from the "won't open" aspect. I have had to do serious battle with this thermos in order to open it, even when I made an effort not to overtighten it. It's kind of embarrassing to be spotted at the office writhing around, trying to twist open your food container. Hilarious lunch antics like these would fit in at Dunder-Mifflin, but they're out of place where I work.Read more ›
Today I was set to take it out and tried a lot with many items, including a knief. Finally I had to cut it out to get it out. See the attached photos of the horrible state on the inside of the ring and underneath it. Its full of black yucky mold. The water gets trapped in there and mold accumulates. BAD design. what a HEALTH HAZARD! I wonder this design was even approved.
Now ring is out and I cleaned the area beneath it. I am going to use the container without the ring. Which means its not air tight anymore. Let see if it still keeps the food warm.
We've been hand washing them and haven't had any of the issues with water getting trapped that others have reported. The wide mouth makes them very easy to clean.
- wide mouth = easy to eat from, easy to clean
- does a decent job of keeping hot foods warm and cold things cold
- Lunchbots customer service is fabulous
- lids are a little bit too big for small hands - have kids ask a teacher for help
- thermal properties not quite as good as Thermos
