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?
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 :)
