Easy LunchBoxes

I have been searching for a year for the perfect lunchbox. With all the gluten free food I pack around I needed something! Everyone here has super fast metabolisms and they eat a lot more then the normal person, so when we all go out for the day I pack food enough for 6+ people even though there are only 4 of us! I was sick of zipper bags, wrong sized containers, and losing things in the diaper bag.

I came across the Easy Lunchbox and knew I had finally found the right ones! I ordered 2 sets of containers and 2 cooler bags from their Amazon store. I can fit hubby's lunch for work into the cooler along with extras like yogurt cups and fruit. He loves the smaller side containers because the pickles for his sandwiches can be separate (without using a zipper bag every day!). Sounds like a small deal, but pickles make a sandwich soggy if you put them on the night before, especially on gluten free bread! For my kids I love all the separate compartments in each container because I can pack multiple snacks. I can also be assured that all the gluten free snacks for my son are separate from things only his sister can eat by assigning one container to each of them (we have all gone mostly gluten free but I still have some cereal bars etc. for when we are out for her). They are light to pack around. Who needs heavy weight just from containers in their bag? And the cooler allows me to pack foods that would normally not last very long in my bag.

Customer service is AMAZING. I pulled a lid off one container and a small piece from the bottom broke off. Possibly a stress fracture from shipping who knows, the other ones didn't do it. I emailed customer service and within the hour Kelly Lester, mom & CEO, emailed me back offering a free replacement piece shipped to my door as well as tips for how to make them last as long as possible. No questions asked. I had ordered mine to be shipped to my parents who were in US for the winter. They are home now so she is shipping my replacement to me in Canada.

They are definitely NOT flimsy take and toss pieces, and they do NOT discolour or warp in the dishwasher (2 things I hate about plastic containers). They are heat resistant enough that they can even go on the bottom of the dishwasher! I love the cooler size, 3 containers fit easily, or 2 plus extras. The lids, although not leakproof, offer quite a good seal. Enough that you don't worry about one compartment's food tasting like the others! They ARE plastic, so keep in mind that eventually they will wear out. But it depends on your use. Anywhere from 4-12 months is the lifespan. I suppose it depends if you hand wash or use a dishwasher, if you use them daily, if you abuse them, and if you just wipe them out (sandwich crumbs) at the end of the day and reuse vs washing them. From how sturdy they feel I expect them to last me a year or more!

If you're on the hunt for lunchboxes I would recommend giving these a try. They are not so costly that you would strangle your kids (or husband lol) for losing them, but at the same time they are not cheapo ones that you would toss out on purpose for a long time!

All in all I'm very happy with my purchase and with the follow up customer service!
