Can I put my lunch box in the dishwasher?

Whilst we recommend hand washing your lunch box, the lunch box base can be put in the dishwasher. However the lid should be washed by hand, it should only need a simple wipe and you should leave it to dry thoroughly :)


Can I put my lunch box in the microwave?

We have a range of microwaveable lunch boxes that can indeed be heated in the microwave. You should only put the base of the lunch box in the microwave, and please be careful handling when hot. Our standard lunch box range cannot go in the microwave. 


What are your lunch boxes made of?

The lid of our lunch boxes is made from natural, solid rolled bamboo and comes with a elasticated fabric strap and food grade silicone seal to help keep food fresh.
For our standard lunch box range, the base of the lunch box is a bamboo fibre composite which is made from 45% bamboo fibre, 30% corn powder, 19.5% melamine, 0.5% resin and 5% other wood fibres. Melamine is an organic compound that helps to give the base of the lunch box its shape.
For our microwaveable range, the base of the lunch box is made from a mix of bamboo fibre and PLA, which is a bioplastic that is made from corn. 

Where are you lunch boxes made?

We work closely with our manufacturer in China who produces our lunch boxes for us. The lunch boxes are produced in Zhejiang province, with the bamboo materials being supplied from a bamboo farm in the neighbouring Anhui province.


What type of bamboo do you use?

The species of bamboo we use in the production of our lunch boxes is Phyllostachys Pubescens, this is a bamboo species which is native to the Anhui province.


Are you lunch boxes leakproof?

Due to the natural materials used to make the lunch box and the fact that they are plastic free, BamBox’s bamboo lunch boxes are not 100% leakproof - so we would suggest not using them to carry liquids such as soups.


Will natural acids such as vinegars and lemon juice interact with the lunch box? 

It is fine to put foods with natural acids in the lunch box, they will not interact with our bamboo lunch box.


Will my lunch box come with plastic-free packaging?

Yes! For all the items we ship out ourselves to customers we will ensure that all packaging is plastic-free. We have less control over this if you made your purchase with another stockist, however we aim to work with like-minded companies that are committed to being plastic-free :)
