I have to be honest. I am a huge fan of Lunchbots products! I own several and the Trio is definitely my favorite of all the available Lunchbots offerings. As a mom of 4, I pack a lot of lunches and have used a lot of different lunch containers! You can trust that I know a thing or two about them!! My Lunchbots containers continue to get used daily and my 10 year old Brendan definitely prefers to see his lunch in a Trio.

Please click here to view more posts on this blog showing lunches presented in a Lunchbots Trio.

Called a Trio because the stainless steel container features 3 compartments; 2 identically sized squarish compartments along with 1 long slender compartment. The configuration of the Trio and the shiny stainless steel lends itself very well to presenting food in an appealing way.

The overall dimensions of this container are 6″ x 5″ x 1.75″ and it is a very good fit for any lunch bag. You can easily control lunch portions but certainly the size does not cap your possible lunch combinations.  I would recommend serving cut sandwiches, fruits, veggies, nuts, crackers, cheese, beans, sushi, olives, rice and more in a Lunchbots Trio. Do note that the container is not leakproof so liquids are not recommended.

Made of high quality stainless steel, the container is very durable and will stand the test of time. The base is dishwasher safe but the lid should be hand washed. The lid comes in 3 color options; red (shown below), turquoise and stainless steel.

Here is my final Pro/Con breakdown:

Pros

  • Stainless Steel means no chance of BPAs
  • Durable and long lasting
  • Less lunch waste  (no sandwich baggies)
  • Easily control portion sizes
  • Food looks more colorful and appealing
  • Compartments separate food for picky eaters
  • Fits in most lunchbags with plenty of space left for a drink container and icepack
  • Base container is dishwasher safe

Cons

  • The colored lids are painted, they will scratch and do need to be hand washed
  • Can dent/ding if dropped
  • Condensation can form inside when used with icepacks (any metal lunch container)
  • Not microwavable for heat-ups
  • Not leakproof

 

Finally to answer one of the questions that is posed to me quite often!

Is that really enough food? That container doesn’t look like it holds much.

To answer this I simply present the photo below. This is the very lunch shown at the top of this post but presented on a plate. Now I ask you, does it look like enough food? To me the answer is a definitive yes! A sandwich, cheese stars, 2 blueberry almond bites, carrot coins, grapes, cucumber letters and edamame crackers. Note that I certainly could have put in another blueberry almond bite (shown below in the black cup) and perhaps more cheese stars next to the sandwich but the beauty of the Trio is it does allow you to control your portions. For hungrier adults you can use 2 containers!
