- Gleaming and shiny, with a mirror finish, and made from food-quality stainless steel;
- Comprised of three different containers, one of which can fit into the others;
- Good for the environment, as it contains no plastic, no BPA, no lead; and no throw-aways; and
- Easy to keep clean: dishwasher safe, and it retains no odors or residues, and will not stain.
It's ECOLunchbox's "Three-in-One." It contains three components, all made of food-grade stainless steel. The "downstairs" one is 1" deep, and the "upstairs" one, which sits atop it, is 1 1/2 inches deep. There is also a nesting cup that can hold 1/2 cup of whatever you put in it, such as organic raisins or nuts or a side dish.
Here are some ideas for ways to use this nifty set:
Pack food in it for children to bring to school or on camping or road trips. Note that the covers are not leak-proof, because no plastic or synthetic gaskets have been used, and it's not insulated. The Three-in-One should not be used in a microwave (but we here at RawFoodsNewsMagazine.com do not advocate use of a microwave, anyway!)
Put small gifts into the sections, and incorporate this set into a themed gift basket. We'd love to see a raw vegan food theme, containing small packages of raw bars (like Stephen James Organics' Brownie and Power Berry "mini bars"), crackers (maybe ones you make yourself from flax seeds, chopped onion, sunflower seeds and caraway seeds), and chocolate candies (we especially love the ones made by Ulimana). And as a gift for those who love to make recipes from scratch, you could put hard-to-find ingredients into the compartments, like Kala Namak ("black") salt from Frontier Natural Products Co-Op; Volcanic Pili Nuts from Stephen James Organics; and pomegranate powder from Navitas Naturals.
We could also imagine the Three-in-One as gift boxes, in a surprise way of presenting jewelry on special occasions, such as Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, your wedding anniversary, or even for a marriage proposal! Just think, besides the jewelry you might put into them, the boxes are gifts in themselves!
