How to choose the lunchbox that's right for you.

Choosing a lunchbox that will work for you is very important but not necessarily easy!

Getting your lunchbox right will mean that you use it more and will probably mean that you use up more of those leftovers that are sometimes lunched out (sorry) in the fridge.

There are a lot to choose from and it can be hard to know where to start. That's where we come in. We're here to help.

Firstly, let's have a think about your lunch.

What do you usually take?

Do you need your lunchbox to be leakproof? Then think about what size you need and do you want tiers or compartments? Or are you someone who mixes it up from one day to the next?

Already overwhelmed? Fear not.

If most of the time you take a juicy salad or saucy pasta then you need a leak proof lunchbox. If you want to buy from us then you probably want something from our Clip & Seal range but have a look at the Twist & Lock Canisters as well.

We do stock other containers that will fit inside Clip and Seal boxes (see below) if you need to separate food. NB these boxes already come with a removable divider.

If you usually take a more 'traditional' packed lunch  - think, sandwiches, crisps, apple, cake, then the Original 2ltr Elephant Box is for you. Take note that this container is not leakproof.

The Original Elephant Box is also great if you have no fixed habit as you can fit other containers inside it. Perhaps you want to separate things like some nuts or veg sticks or take a dip or dressing with you to add when you eat. There's a list below of what fits inside.

For smaller appetites or snackers the 3 in 1 or the 2 in 1 lunchbox will work very well. Both of them have a handy snack pod inside. Neither of these lunchboxes are leakproof but the 50ml dressing pot will fit inside if you want to take dressing or ketchup with you.

Hot Food? Check out the Insulated Flask. It's 450ml and will keep food hot for 6hrs or cold for even longer.

We hope this helps you decide. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch with us at info@elephantbox.co.uk We really want you to get the right thing and are always happy to answer any questions.

PS Don’t forget your spork 😊
