The possibilities are many when it comes to investing in a new lunch box - both when it comes to design, but also materials. Should it be plastic, bamboo, glass or stainless steel? All materials have their advantages, but the winner must be stainless steel. And why is it that stainless steel is the perfect material?
We hereby give you 5 good reasons why you should choose a lunch box made of stainless steel.
1. A friend for life
Stainless steel is an extremely durable material and is made to last a lifetime. When you buy a lunch box in stainless steel, you get a friend for life who will follow you in thick and thin.
2. Show consideration for the environment
Since stainless steel is very durable, you get a lunch box that can last a lifetime or longer and also can replace a year-long over-consumption of plastic and disposable packaging.
In other words you invest in a material that helps reduce consumption.
In addition, it is a recyclable material and stainless steel can be re-used again and again. In other words if you one day want to discard your lunchbox - the steel can be re-used for other purposes. We call this living with care.
3. For health reasons
Healthy food deserves healthy packaging. With a stainless steel lunch box, you get a lunch box free of harmful chemicals - free of BPA, phthalates and toxins. This means you pack your food in a stainless steel lunch box without having to worry.
4. A natural cooling element
We all know it - a lunch, which has been in the bag for hours, because we did not have the opportunity to store it in a fridge, is not very appetizing.
This problem is now solved! Steel is by nature a cooling element. If you store your Bento boxes in a refrigerator before use, the steel will absorb the cold and keep your food nice and cold on the go.
5. Easy to clean
Another nice thing about using stainless steel is that it is easy to clean. It is a material that does not absorb color, so you no longer have to fear the curry and tomato dishes, which usually color plastic. Everything simply slips off when you rinse your lunch box. And if you are lucky enough to have a dishwasher at home, you just throw your lunch box in the dishwasher. What is not to like?
