What I Like About EasyLunchboxes Lunch Box Containers

There are many reasons why I recommend this product. Here are a few things I like about the EasyLunchboxes 3-Compartment Bento Lunch Box Containers.
- Easy Lunchboxes make packing easy. Having all my food in one container rather than multiple bags and tupperware makes the process really easy. I put everything in one container, take everything from one container, wash one container – it makes it so much simpler!
- Easy Lunchboxes help with portion control. I have a tendency to pack and eat too much for lunch even though I’m perfectly satisfied with a light lunch. Using the size restrictions of the bento box container makes me rethink the sizes I am eating and forces me to choose the right amount of food I need.
- Easy Lunchboxes are kid friendly. After bringing these in my lunchbox to work for several weeks my boss bought some for her daughter in kindergarten. She reported back saying she LOVED them and they made packing lunch a lot easier each morning. I was thrilled to introduce their family to a product that made life easier.
- Easy Lunchboxes are convenient. They make putting lunch together so much easy but they are also microwave and dishwasher safe which makes them very convenient too. I have had zero problems using these in the dishwasher or microwave.
- Easy Lunchboxes are healthy. Another benefit is that they are free from any chemicals or things that could harm you or make your food taste bad. You don’t have to worry about gross things leaking into your food and instead can focus on eating the more nutritional food possible.
- Easy Lunchboxes work for any meal. I’ve taken a full day of work meals in my lunchbox with one container holding my breakfast and the other container holding my lunch. It’s super convenient and gives me no excuse to eat out!
There are a ton of reasons why I love the Easy Lunchbox system and think these bento boxes are the perfect solution for packing lunch.
What I Don’t Like About EasyLunchboxes Lunch Box Containers

There are a couple things I don’t like about the these lunch box containers.
- Not 100% spillproof. I wish they were spill proof so you could put in wet items in the different compartments. This isn’t really an option currently and leads to messes. You have to use a separate container for anything like a sauce or soup. The dippers are nice but I’d prefer one container total.
- Hard to close sometimes. I sometimes put too much volume in the containers and have trouble closing the lids. I’ve had a couple items at odd angles that made it hard to close and seal.
Overall Thoughts On EasyLunchboxes Lunch Box Containers
Highly recommended for anyone who:
- brings their lunch to work
- needs to work on portion control
- has kids who take their lunch
- likes convenience
I’ve recommended them before to people in my daily life and a lot of friends and past co-workers have bought them for kids’ lunchboxes. Apparently they work really well for younger kids who need to take their lunch!
I have owned and used my own set of these lunchbox containers for a couple of years now. They’ve stood the test of being used for tons of different food items, in the freezer, in the fridge, for a picnic, in the dishwasher, in the microwave, etc. They are the best food storage and lunchbox containers I’ve come across. Everyone I know that has used them agrees and so does the general republic – they have tons of great reviews on Amazon!
