A lunch box has many uses other than just packing lunch. For instance, it is convenient to use when entertaining guests or if you need an extra place to store leftovers after lunch. Many people also use it for packing eggs on Easter and Christmas morning. There are many reasons why a lunch box can come in handy but it is primarily used to keep food cold during the cold winter months. And when you buy a microwaveable lunch box, you get all the benefits of using one but at half the time!
A lunch box is designed with a lid that is built in. This makes it microwave safe. It is designed with a lid that fits over the top and has a handle to seal the top. The large size variety available means you can select the perfect size based on the quantity of food/sided dishes you wish to pack.
You can convert this simple storage container into an all purpose, microwave safe lunch bag: just take it out of the freezer in the morning to pack your lunch bags, or leftover food from dinner the night before. Microwave safe lunch boxes are designed to keep food hot and fresh until lunch time. You can buy them in different flavors, shapes and sizes. There are even some lunch boxes that have insulated handles so the food stays warm for a longer time. The insulated handles make these lunch boxes good for packing cold beverages as well.
Bento Lunch Bags - These are lunch boxes that are specifically made to be microwavable. They are much like the standard lunch bags but have the added feature of having a zipper at the top. These lunch boxes are also available in different sizes and shapes. They are made of heavy duty zippered polypropylene with a waterproof interior.
The BPA Free version of these lunch boxes is becoming a popular choice due to its benefits. The plastic that the BPA Free lunch boxes are made from is nontoxic and does not contain any form of BPA. Due to increased concerns about the effects of BPA on our health, the US government banned the use of BPA. Since then several companies have begun to produce plastic, free lunches bags. BPA Free lunch bags are a convenient alternative to traditional bento lunch bags.
These microwave safe food containers can fit perfectly in any microwave oven. The zippered tops provide a place for you to put your cup, glass or plate. Microwave safe lunch boxes can be bought in a variety of colors. However, there are a few things to keep in mind when choosing your color. Most of the time the more brightly colored the better. Pink and red are two popular choices.
These lunch boxes can either come with a snap closure or interlock plastic closures. If you purchase one with a snap closure, you will find that it is easier to fill up because you do not have to remove the lid to fill up your sandwich. This type of lunch container has a divider which allows you to eat salad on one side and your chips on the other side. This is a good option for children who might have difficulty eating everything their fingers can handle. Lunch plastic containers with interlocking closures are usually smaller than those without snap closures.
When buying lunch containers, it is important to pay attention to what is inside them. You should check to see if any of the plastic containers has BPA. If so, you should remove it from your shopping cart and throw it away. However, there are some types of food containers that still contain BPA. These include those sold at restaurants.
