OOTS! Lunchbox: Cool but Pricey
Posted by: Meg In: Lunchbox Products
OOTS! Lunch boxes are made of BPA-free and phthalate-free polypropylene and have been safety tested for lead. The lunch box and containers are dishwasher safe (top rack) and the containers can be used in a microwave. All five of the inner lunch box containers come with lids, but I’m not sure how leak-proof they are.
If you take a drink along, the top of the OOTS! lunch box has a slight dip in the lid along with an elastic strap so you can attach your water bottle, Sigg bottle, or etc. onto the top (see picture).
I think the lunchbox has a nice design and PLASTICA products are well made, but the OOTS! seems too large for use as a kids lunch box. Plus, I think most parents don’t want to fork out close to $50 for a lunchbox! However, for a working professional who enjoys products with nice design, the OOTS! Lunchbox could be a great choice. As for the price–you save $5-10 per day when you pack your own lunch box, so if OOTS! motivates you to bring your lunch more often, then all the better for your wallet and your health!
The lunch box facts:
Measurements: 9″ tall by 7″ wide.
Inner containers: One long container (6.75″ x 3.75″) + Four square containers (3.5″ x 3″).
Three color choices: blue with red lid, green with bronze lid, and orange with yellow lid.
Cost: $48 retail (on Amazon is $44.95 with Free Shipping)
