Black & Blum Stainless Steel Lunch Box Overview:
Minimise your plastic use with this 3-in-1 multi-functional stainless steel lunch box from Black & Blum. Completely leak proof, the reusable lunch box allows you to transport your lunch, cook dishes in the oven and store food in the freezer. It is BPA free and comes with an inner divider along with a stainless steel fork which fits snugly under the silicone strap.
To ensure the lunch box is leak proof the lid must be locked and sealed. To do this the lid must be firmly pushed down on all sides and then the press valve must be firmly pushed down. Finish by securing the box with the silicone strap.

Packaged in a recyclable cardboard box.
Stainless steel is used because it maintains its strength at high temperatures. This is useful for cooking but it is not good for the environment. It is not easily recycled unless it is 100% stainless steel. Over 80% of stainless steel is mixed with other material to make it cheaper which makes it impossible to recycle.
The Black & Blum Lunch Box consists of used thin wall stainless steel and silicone. This makes a container which is watertight.
Quality of Design
The functions of these containers are very straight forward. They are well designed and easy to use. The way the silicone strap is attached to the lid of the container can be the cause of leaks but they don’t seem to happen if you press the lid on firmly.
The components have very low maintenance and would need to be cleaned each time they are used.
The lunch box can withstand everyday knocks and bangs and is durable for most life span use
The lunch box cost was around £30.
The Black & Blum Stainless Steel Lunch Box is designed well and functions well. As a student it is convenient as it can be used for cooking, storing food, carrying lunch, keeping food hot and cold. There is only one drawback to this product, the price.
For a stainless steel container £30 is too much and needs to be re-considered for the product to be able to compete with plastic lunch boxes in the market.
