LITTLE LUNCH BOX CO. CARE AND PACKING INSTRUCTIONS
Little Lunch Box Co products are all made of durable hardwearing BPA free food safe materials. Wear and tear is a normal part of any product and common with products made for, and used by, children. Wear and tear or damage caused by drops are not a fault created during the manufacturing process and will not be claimable under our manufacturers warranty.
Unless otherwise stated in the product descriptions, our Bento lunch boxes are top shelf dishwasher safe on wash cycles <45 degrees celsius.
To keep your Little Lunch Box Co products looking their best avoid prolonged direct contact with sunlight.
We do not recommend you use Little Lunch Box Co products in the microwave, oven or freezer.
We recommend that you always store your lunch box with the lid open when not in use to allow the seal to fully dry. Storing your lunch box with the lid closed can result in mould growth. This will not be covered under your manufactures warranty.
The Bento Three and Bento Five seal is designed to stop the transfer of wet foods with the consistency of tub yogurts (not squeeze packs) and dips, not liquids such as salad dressings, soups or sauces.
Follow these four easy steps to avoid transfer of foods…
We recommend you pack your Little Lunch Box into a cooler bag with a cold pack to keep the contents cool and avoid spoiling
Use only foods with the recommended consistency.
When packing foods such as tinned or cut fruit, particularly fruits such as watermelon and citrus, ensure you drain all excess liquid before placing into the lunch box. If you are worried about the transfer of certain foods place the food into the empty lunch box and stand on its side for 15 minutes to test.
When placing food or wet foods into each compartment leave a 5mm gap between the food and the top of the compartment to ensure the lid is able to close properly allowing the seal to engage.
Once you have finished packing your Little Lunch Box close the lid and latch, place your palm on the top of the lid and give it a firm push to ensure the seal has engaged.
