U Konserve Insulated Jar and Leak Proof Containers Review

The nice people over at U Konserve generously offered us the opportunity to review some of their products, and I'm excited to bring you this post. For many of us the weather is starting to get cooler, and at this time of year we will be thinking of ways to send some warm foods for a school lunch. I believe you will be glad to learn that U Konserve has a great container which is perfect for that!

Hot chili for school lunch. U Konserve Insulated Jar and Leak Proof Containers Review

Made from stainless steel, vacuum insulated and with a silicone seal for the plastic lid, their Insulated Food Jar can keep food hot for as much as five hours, or cold foods cold for as much as eight. This is great for those, like me, who want to send soup, chili, hot pasta, or leftovers that your child loved so much the night before. It is also great for sending cold foods like yogurt, applesauce, fruit salads and more. I've quizzed our son when he returns from school and got the 'two thumbs up' report for both conditions. It can hold 12 ounces and with a diameter of 3½ inches and a height of only 5¼ inches, it should easily fit into most lunch bags.

For this lunch I packed leftover chili in the insulated jar with some shredded cheese in the small container and some red grapes in the larger. I included an ice pack for the containers of grapes and cheese, and of course a spoon for the chili, which are not shown in the photo.

The photos above show the U Konserve Insulated Jar with two other very handy containers which are also from U Konserve. These round containers have leak resistant lids which I absolutely love! On the left is their large round stainless steel container which can hold 16 ounces of fruits, veggies, pasta and other favorites. It is 4¾ inches in diameter and 2¼ inches high. The smaller one, a very nice size for some of those other things like dips, raisins, snacks, cheese and more has a capacity of 5 ounces, the same diameter as the insulated jar at 3½ inches, and has a height of 1½ inches. These other containers have plastic lids , while the top for the insulated jar is made from polypropylene and has a silicone seal, and all of these products are BPA-free, phthalate-free and lead-free, and all of these containers are made of food grade (18/8) stainless steel.

U Konserve reusable food kozy snack bag review

You may already know that I'm obsessed with reusable snack bags, which are not just for school lunches, but very handy at many other times as well. Traveling, another favorite activity, comes easily to my mind! U Konserve reusable food kozy snack bag is perfect for cut fruits, veggies, nuts, pretzels, sandwiches and more. These bags, which have a velcro closure, are the completely portable solution and so much nicer than using disposable bags. It will be great for after school activities when he requires a snack. This bag is easy to clean, dries quickly and it's 6.5" wide x 6" tall, BPA and phthalate free. Here I packed organic popcorn for Nikolai's snack.
