Do You Know?
Studies of bisphenol-S, the chemical compound sometimes used to replace bisphenol-A in "BPA-free" plastic products, found it is disruptive not only to the body's hormone system but to brain circuitry in developing animal embryos.
Known to mimic estrogen, BPA and BPS are not the only synthetic chemicals found in hard plastic and certain resins that do so. (Close relatives include Bisphenol B, C, E, F, G, M. P, PH, TMC, and Z.) In laboratory tests, 95 percent of hundreds of ordinary plastic products put through "real world" conditions, such as through a microwave or dishwasher, tested positive for leaching estrogenic chemicals. Since companies are under no obligation to tell consumers what chemicals are used in the manufacture of their product, many health experts say the best thing to do is avoid contact with household plastics altogether.
With the caveat that it is nearly impossible to not be exposed to plastic in the course of a day, here are two lists. The first contains a selective list of plastic items or products that contain plastic resins that experts say you should limit your exposure to or sanitize your hands after touching. The second list contains a selective list of safe alternatives
- hard plastic sports bottles
- plastic food storage containers
- food wrap
- hard and flexible packaging
- deli containers
- plastic bags
- baby bottle components (nipple, ring, liner, etc)
- plastic dinnerware and plates
- non-stick cookware
- plastic cleaning products
- thermal receipt paper
- canned food and drink
- stainless steel water bottles
- unbleached wax paper
- anything made from wool, cotton, hemp or plastic-free, biodegradable fibers
- plastic-free cleaning products, such as baking soda, vinegar, and essential oils
- stainless steel or cast iron cookware
They go in the dishwasher, they look like new, they don’t leak - all the main boxes ticked for us. We keep them in the car for takeaways (Katsu donburi, anyone?) and use them for long shifts at work to take dinner leftovers in.
The seals do sometimes pop out when the containers are open (for cleaning for example), but are easy to put back in. They are heavier than plastic but not noticeably so if I’m carrying them in a back pack or carrier bag, so it doesn’t bother me.
I bought the the box for what now turns out to be a different reason. I keep my condiments in it,salt pepper, spices etc for when I go camping. It's brilliant. Everything stays dry and fresh. Well done Meals in steel. And thank you.
I'm in the US and have not been able to find anything like this here! There are steel boxes that are similar, but all are smaller and none are leak proof.
This Meals In Steel Large Leak Proof Lunchbox is EXACTLY what I've been looking for! I bring it to my local lunch spot to grab pickup/take out food and everyone's been commenting on it! I'm so glad I ordered 2!
Thanks so much!
These lunchboxes are great, sturdy and leak proof and will be perfect for school lunches. We love that these will last for years, instead if replacing plastic lunchboxes every term. The only issue we have is that the clips are too hard for our 6 year old to open and close, so it look like we will be putting her one away until she is a little older and hands are stronger.
Great concept and a sturdy construction. However, the sides of the container were 'warped' and the leak proof seal is almost impossible to use as it just falls out from the channel it is supposed to sit in as soon as you turn the lid upside down to place on top of the box. The steel is probably also thicker than required, which makes it quite heavy to carry around. If these issues were resolved I would give the product 5 stars.
