FAQ:

Metal lunch boxes are a great option food container option for kids because the metal is antibacterial and doesn’t leach chemicals. Just be sure to look for all metal versions instead of those with plastic lids.

Stainless steel is felt to be a healthier, sturdier lunch box material than plastic. The LunchBot is lightweight and marketed to “last a lifetime” with proper care. Not only do I avoid missing plastic container lids and tubs, but the stainless steel LunchBot is much easier and quicker to clean.


Stainless steel is a fantastic safe material for use as a food container as there are no chemicals that can migrate into your food.


Unlike plastic containers, steel lunch boxes are meant to be used for a year. They do not stain, exert any odors, or wear out as opposed to plastic. Replacing plastic with stainless steel will help you reduce the harm it can cause to your body.

Metal left in the microwave oven during cooking will only cause trouble if (a) it is very thin or (b) it has sharp edges or points. The microwaves push electric charges back and forth in metal, so if the metal is too thin, it will heat up like the filament of a light bulb and may cause a fire. And if the metal has sharp edges or points, charges may accumulate on those sharp spots and then leap into space as a spark. 

Many of us already know for sure that metals should not be put in the microwave for several good reasons.

“What about stainless steel cups and mugs? Can I microwave stainless steel?”

The short answer is, nope! Stainless steel has a layer of chromium oxide on the surface which prevents oxidation and corrosion.

Other than that, stainless steels are not so different from ordinary metals when they are heated in microwave ovens.That is to say, stainless steel can reflect microwaves as metals do. Due to the shielding effect of the stainless steel, the microwave radiations are blocked and the food cannot be heated. Another reason why you shouldn’t put stainless steel in the microwave lies in that there are potential dangers doing so.
