Rubbermaid Lunch Blox Review
I received a Rubbermaid Lunch Blox set the other day and I was so elated. When I agreed to test the product for Rubbermaid, I thought it was a lunch box. This is even better. This set has 5 pieces. A sandwich size container, a medium sized ( about half the size of the sandwich container, two small containers, and and ice pack. All of the pieces fit neatly together. They have a light snap in place feature that keeps them in a block shape that keeps them compact and more of a cube than individual containers. There is a teeny flaw with the containers, if you do not put the ice pack in the middle of the sandwich container and the three smaller containers, they do not snap together very securely.
I have been using these since I received them. I pack a lunch for my husband every day since he is on a restricted diet and drives a truck. The sandwich container is filled with homemade oatmeal, the two small containers usually have a hard boiled egg or trail mix, and the medium sized container has been everything from cottage cheese to fruit.
I was a little worried that when the containers were snapped together they would not fit in the insulated lunch box that we use. They fit perfectly! The ice kept the food cold witout getting the containers too cold. I have also noticed that the containers do not tip at all since they are locked together, which means no spills.
Overall, I am very happy with the lunchblox. I would love to purchase a few more sets of these so I do not have to wash them every day.
