I like the case it comes in as it has extra pockets for things like utensils, cloth napkin and a drink. There is also an extra interior pocket that I found I could fit the Big and Little Dippers in easily. Please note, there are two styles of cupholders on the case and the one I'm showing is the smaller one, my Kleen Kanteen doesn't really fit well, it was a very tight squeeze. I tried a Sigg and a couple others and none of them fit easily. If you use a wider drink bottle like Kleen Kanteens, make sure you order the other one that is an elastic topped pouch.
It really did fit a good amount of food because you can pile it up. I could see using this myself for lunch even, especially since you can fill the Big & Little Dippers up with dry foods and put them in the pouch, not in the tray. For wet foods, they are better off being stored in the tray, as the lids are sure to stay sealed.
One last thing I want to mention, especially since I talked about how kids will outgrow cheap lunch boxes due to getting broken or because their interests change is that they came up with this brilliant idea of offering magnets to decorate the lunch box with. Which means you can change the magnets! The downside is that they have to be removed before washing, but their suggestion of sticking them on the fridge is pretty clever.
The magnet options are pretty limited, but with some magnet sheets for your printer and a pair of scissors, I think this would be a really easy to craft some custom ones of your own.
So all in all, we are huge fans. It is the ultimate plastic alternative and I like it much better than the stacked tiffins we were using, which were cumbersome to carry and deal with.
So check out the Planetbox stainless steel lunch box. We love ours!
