How We Chose the Most Amazing Lunch Boxes in Our List
Picking out which among the up and coming food containers we have to include in our top 10 list is like gambling where you have to bet on the odds that such products are going to be a real hit next year. Fortunately, it wasn’t really difficult as we have the help of countless consumers who have provided their invaluable comments and feedbacks about these products. At the very least, considering the positive experiences as well as negative feedbacks of consumers gave us an idea of where to start.
We did not limit our selection process in customer feedbacks, of course. We only used it to whittle down the field as evaluating every single product will take us quite a long time to accomplish. Suffice it to say, the comments formed part of our initial screening process which actually worked like a charm.
We then examined how the food storage bag was designed. One of the most critical aspects of our evaluation was the product’s ability to retain the temperature of the food that is placed inside. If there are any features that could guarantee the freshness of the food, then we are pretty sure that you will also love this product. For instance, if there are built-in thermal retention technology or even a reusable ice pack into the storage bag, then we believe that this is going to be a real hit in 2017.
The sturdiness and durability of the product was also evaluated. Clearly, nobody wants to buy a product that will only last a few months. If it can be used for several years, then we believe it is an excellent buy. As such, the type of material used in the product’s manufacture was evaluated to determine its relative strength. Speaking of the materials, these must also provide additional benefits to the user. For example, it should be very easy to clean and to maintain. If not, then we think you’d be better off with something that is both highly functional and low maintenance, too.
Of course, we did not forget styling. As we greet 2017, more and more people want to really stand out in everything. At any rate, we think that we did a pretty good decision in which of the hundreds of products to include in our shortlist as each one of these final ten are really fashionable and highly stylish.

- Insulated or Not?
Obviously, this depends on the type of food that you wish to bring with you to lunch. If you prefer cooked foods, then an insulated bag is a must. If it’s cookies and other snacks that you prefer which don’t really need refrigeration, it doesn’t really matter if it’s insulated or not.
- How Big?
If you’re looking to feed a couple of persons, then you need a bigger lunch bag. You may choose smaller bags but you’ll have to get a whole set for those big lunches wherein you’ll be serving several people at a time.
- How Do You Intend to Carry It?
Some individuals prefer to carry the lunch bag slung over their shoulders. This frees their hands to carry other things. However, there are also individuals who prefer to carry their bags pretty much from the built-in handle. It’s all a matter of preference, actually.
It would really be convenient if you can easily pop in the bag into your dishwasher. Otherwise, maintenance could be an issue.
- Other Features?
Each product often have its own distinguishing feature. You will have to examine these features whether you would benefit from them or not. If the answer is yes, then by all means, buy the lunch bag. Otherwise, go for something simpler.
