Frequently Asked Questions


Manufacturing and Materials

LunchBots food containers are designed in Northern California and responsibly manufactured in Asia. We want you to know that we take the safety of our materials and manufacturing processes seriously. At LunchBots, we offer a full description of our practices because we understand your need to know.

Use and Cleaning

Can LunchBots go in the dishwasher?
Our stainless steel containers, lids, and dish set are dishwasher safe. In addition, the LunchBots Dots lids, Rounds, and Clicks are dishwasher safe. Painted lids must be hand washed. Thermal food containers should also be hand washed to protect the vacuum seal.

Are LunchBots watertight?
The LunchBots lids fit snugly, but they are not watertight. If your food containers may be tossed around in a backpack, we recommend packing dry foods only. We do offer a collection of leak proof LunchBots that are watertight. Leak proof items include the LunchBots Rounds, Clicks, Thermals, and Dips.

Can LunchBots go in the microwave? Oven? Freezer?
Because they are made of metal, LunchBots should not go in the microwave. Do not put LunchBots in the oven either as the containers will become dangerously hot. LunchBots should not be put in the freezer, however the refrigerator is fine.

Will LunchBots keep food hot?
LunchBots food containers are made from a single layer of stainless steel and are not designed to keep food warm. We do not recommend that you store hot food in them as the container will get very hot. However, our Thermal insulated food containers will keep food warm for four to five hours.
