Frequently Asked Questions
Manufacturing and Materials
At LunchBots, we take the safety of our materials and manufacturing processes seriously. That’s why our food containers are designed in Northern California and manufactured responsibly in Asia. View a full description of our Manufacturing Practices and Safety
Use and Cleaning
Can I put my LunchBots in the dishwasher?
Most of our products are dishwasher safe, including our stainless steel containers, dish sets, Dots lids, Rounds, and Clicks. However, our painted lids and thermal food containers should be hand washed.
Are LunchBots watertight?
Some are, some aren’t. LunchBots stainless steel lids fit snugly, but they are not watertight. If your meal is going to be jostled during the day, we recommend packing only non-liquid foods, or better yet: Use our watertight leak proof LunchBots which include the LunchBots Rounds, Clicks, Thermals, and Dips.
Can LunchBots go in the microwave? Oven? Freezer?
Like all metal items, LunchBots should not go in the microwave. They also get dangerously hot in the oven, and should not go in the freezer either. They are, however, very happy in the fridge.
Will LunchBots keep food hot?
Our Thermal insulated food containers keep food warm for four to five hours. However, our non-thermal LunchBots food containers are made from a single layer of stainless steel and are not designed to keep food warm. These will get hot if you pack them with hot foods, so we do not recommend that you store hot food in them.
