Why stainless steel?

Safe. Durable. Reusable and recyclable. Not only do LunchBots stainless steel food containers meet these high standards, they also simply look great, make lunch more fun, and food more appetizing.

Safest material for food storage

Recent disturbing news about toxic chemicals—such as BPA and phthalates—leaching into food stored in plastic is good reason to search for alternative materials for packing lunches.


One excellent choice is food containers made of stainless steel, an alloy composed of natural elements. Inert and sanitary, stainless steel poses no health risks, is widely used in the food industry, and will not impart peculiar tastes or smells to your food.

Rest assured that when you pack your food in a LunchBot, only the highest quality, food-grade 18/8 stainless steel comes into contact with your food. No linings. No toxins.


Durable enough to last a lifetime

More practical and lightweight than breakable glass, stainless steel is virtually indestructible. That means your LunchBots food containers will last and last.


Plus, rigid and tough LunchBots protect your food in transit. Lunch arrives at school looking just like it did when it left your kitchen counter. Snacks packed for a hike survive being jostled around in your backpack. Meals you bring on your commute are intact at your desk.

And when your LunchBots return home, the easy-to-clean and rust- and stain resistant properties of stainless steel ensure these food containers will look great for years to come.


100% reusable, 100% recyclable

You care about leaving your children—and their children’s children—a clean, safe planet. Plastic baggies are neither easily reusable nor biodegradable, and only a small percentage of plastic containers are ever actually recycled.


LunchBots food containers, on the other hand, can be refilled over and over. By making the simple switch from plastic to LunchBots, you’ll reduce the amount of waste entering our landfills. And if you add up the cost of disposables, LunchBots will actually save you money.

Finally, stainless steel is one of the most recycled materials on earth. Years from now, if you no longer need your LunchBots, you can either pass them down or place them in the recycling bin.
