Easy Lunchboxes.com was kind enough to send me a set of four compartmentalized
food containers and a lunch bag cooler to try.
Since my full time job is no longer outside of the home, and my daughter isn’t school age yet, it was up to my husband to put this product to the test since he packs his lunches most days for work. I reminded my husband a few days ago that he had to start using this system to pack his lunches so that I could post this review on this product. The first thing he asked me was, does it have those bad chemicals in it? You mean BPA’s? I asked. I said I didn’t know, so I went to their site and looked it up. I excitedtly told him that it doesn’t – no BPA’s, no phthalates, no vinyl and no lead! We’ve made a concerted effort have him not use the cheaper plastic food containers when he has to microwave his food because of those chemicals that can leach in his meal.
His report: The first thing he asked when telling me about it was how much it costs. I told him $13.95 for the plastic containers and another $7.95 for the lunch bag. He then asked me how much the thinner, disposable and toxic containers were and I told him like $3-4 for a pack of 5. He said that these re-usable plastic containers that are BPA free, more durable, and last longer was a much better deal. He has been using ceramic containers to avoid plastic chemicals and they are much heavier. So he was also happy to find a safe, light weight alternative that had separate compartments for his lunches. He also liked the lunch bag because it was so simple. One thing he did say though that it would be nice if it had just one pocket for silverware or other small items.
