How do I keep my food hot or cold in the insulated lunch pot?
How do I keep my food hot or cold in the insulated lunch pot?

You can enjoy a hot or cold lunch even if you don't have access to a fridge or microwave, thanks to our insulated lunch pot.  But what's the best way to make sure your food stays hot or cold for as long as possible?

  • How long your food stays hot or cold depends on the type of food, the quantity, and its starting temperature. For example, lukewarm pasta will not hold its heat for as long as piping hot soup.
  • A full lunch pot will stay hot or cold longer than a pot that is only half full. That's because there's less air inside, and air heats up and cools down faster than your lunch does.
  • You can help to maintain the temperature for longer by rinsing the pot with hot or very cold water before you use it. Doing so significantly reduces the difference in temperature between your lunch pot and your meal.
  • Your meal will stay hot in the insulated lunch pot for a maximum of 6 to 8 hours. It will stay cold for up to 12 hours.

Fun tip: How about a delicious boiled egg at lunchtime?  The insulated lunch pot can take care of that for you! Fill your insulated lunch pot with boiling water and add up to two eggs. Leave the eggs in the lunch pot for at least two hours. Two hours later, you'll have perfectly cooked eggs, lovely and hot!
