THE BEST
"I bought this for myself and love it! I work different shifts every day so this is a new favorite. I can pack a good lunch or dinner and stay away from the higher calorie snacks we sell. I love the built-in portion control and being able to pack it back up to take home and wash. Nothing to throw away. Win win win!"

-- Beth, Dallas, TX

WOULDN'T USE ANYTHING ELSE
"This is the best way to make sure you are packing lunch with as little waste as possible. Also, because of the various sizes, it inspires me to be creative and try new things. My first grader and fourth grader have no problems at all using and returning with all parts."

-- CJ, Ohio
