A lightweight 450ml Borosilicate glass bowl with a protective and insulating (keep cool) sustainably sourced wood fibre base and Stainless steel lid.
Am I able to put the Glass Lunch Pot in the microwave?
Yes, you can microwave the Glass Lunch Pot, the silicone lid and the wood fibre base. DO NOT microwave the stainless steel lid. Ensure the glass pot is heated inside the wood fibre base, which is heat resistant and will ensure you don’t burn your hands. The silicone lid has a small tab that can be tucked inside the rim of the glass pot, ensuring a vacuum doesn’t form when the pot is being heated. This lid also ensures a splatter-free experience. You should heat food for a max of 2 minutes, stirring and repeating as necessary.
Am I able to put the Glass Lunch Pot in the oven?
The stainless steel lid and wood fibre base are NOT oven safe, however the glass pot (on its own) and silicone lid are. DO NOT allow direct contact with flames or use it with the grill. Glass is susceptible to breaking if there is a sudden change in temperature so ensure it is room temperature before placing it in the oven (i.e. do not move directly from fridge or freezer to preheated oven) and DO NOT run under cold water or place on a cold surface directly from the oven.
Am I able to put the Glass Lunch Pot in the dishwasher?
Yes, you can clean all parts of this product in a dishwasher. However, we recommend using the top rack if possible. Be careful to wait until the glass pot has cooled after a cycle, and avoid placing directly onto a cold surface as it may break due to thermal shock.
Am I able to put the Glass Lunch Pot in the freezer?
All parts of the Glass Lunch Pot can go in the freezer, but you must ensure food is completely defrosted before reheating and never use the microwave or oven to defrost your food. Also, as liquid expands by about 9% when it freezes, you should ensure some space in the lunch pot before freezing, and do not overfill.
Is the Glass Lunch Pot BPA and BPS free?
Yes, they are.
Is there anything I can do to make the stainless steel lid easier to open?
Sometimes, after it’s been used a few times, the lid may become stiff and difficult to open. Simply apply some vegetable oil to the inside and wipe dry, this will make it easier to open. Never close the stainless steel lid on the wood fibre base without first ensuring the glass lunch pot and silicone lid are also inside.
What is in the wood fibre base?
The protective wood fibre bowl is made from a mixture of polypropylene and sustainably sourced PEFC wood fibre (30%).
If the glass breaks, can I get a replacement?
Yes, just go to the REPLACEMENT PARTS collection of our site to find the part you need.
The silicone lid protects your microwave from food splatter and the clever air release tab ensures no heat vacuum forms whilst heating.
The glass used in the Lunch Pot is Borosilicate, which is lightweight, stain resistant and strong.
The protective and heat resistant base ensures the product can be handled straight from the microwave, with a silicone ring which stops the base from slipping or moving.
When we started this design 3 years ago, we were driven by the aim of developing a lightweight and leak proof product, the opposite of most glass lunch boxes on the market. What we’ve created is exactly this; the Borosilicate glass pot is much lighter than standard glass containers, with a heat-resistant wood fibre base to protect it, and a stainless steel lid to ensure it’s 100% leak proof. Its functional modern design with a retro feel, in a durable and compact product that is perfect for eating on-the-go.
