GOTOTOP 3 Tier Electric

So Functional

If you're in the market for something ultra-versatile, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better option than the GOTOTOP 3-tier lunch box. It's not a simple warmer but a cooker and steamer all in one. Three tiers - three functions.

For starters, we would like to draw your attention to the set of this heater that includes three stainless steel bowls for warming and separating dishes, measuring cup, steaming rack, power cord, and the base. The plastic parts are made from food-grade PP material that is high-temperature resistant and completely non-toxic.

The food warmer is quite easy to operate. You just need to add water to the heated base, put in a stainless steel container (with food) of a preferable size, and cover it. Press the power "On/Off" switch and wait for 10-15 minutes to let the food warm up. That's all.

Besides heating, this multifunction electric lunch box can also cook rice, steam veggies, boil eggs, cook noodles, soup, porridge, and the like. In this case, you'll need to put the water right into the base, then put rice or other food into the inner pot, and add water to get the rice steamed. And if you'd like to steam some veggies, you can install an additional rack. Steaming won't take you longer than 30 minutes.

All things considered, the GOTOTOP 3-tier lunch box is a very multifunctional device that lets you not only warm your food on-the-go but also prepare your own healthy meals when not at home. Excellent for those who cherish versatility.

SZETOSY Separate Detachable

Excellent for Drivers

SZETOSY offers an affordable, stylish, and functional electric lunch box for drivers that spend quite a lot of time on the road. Supplied only with 12V cable and powered solely from the cigarette lighter, the container needs from 20 to 30 minutes to warm up your food on-the-go.

The only thing to note is that this lunch heater won't turn off automatically once the food is warmed up. It's better to set an alarm clock if you're a kind of forgetful person. Otherwise, you may end up with super hot food. The PTC original heating element along with the heat insulation dual function will do the trick.

The walls of the lunchbox are made of food-grade PP plastic and stainless steel, the materials that are totally non-toxic and safe for humans. In addition, this combo of materials makes the lunch box ultra robust and resistant to high temperatures. We dare say the SZETOSY food warmer can survive lots of throwing and bouncing that often happen on the road.

Inside, the box is divided into two sections for the main course and snacks. You can load sandwiches, vegetables, or soup without worries about them mixing up. As a nice touch, the box also comes with a plastic spoon. And there is a handy groove for fitting the spoon on the lid.

Summing up everything said above, the SZETOSY could become a great, portable lunch box for individuals that have to drive for extended periods of time and have no opportunity to stop off at road cafes or restaurants.

Travelisimo 1 Liter

All Included

Travelisimo presents another high-quality lunch box any traveller will surely appreciate. It has everything to provide you with comfort during your trips and beyond them.

The very first thing we found appealing about this warming container is that it's delivered with two different plugs - one for work or home use (220V) and the other one for cars or trucks (12V). So, with this thermal container, you can keep your food warm whenever and wherever you are. It heats food without water and does this quite fast. The unit can even reheat food from frozen, but that will obviously take more time.

The other benefit is that you get not only the lunch warming box with the order but also a fork and a spoon as a bonus. The cutlery, as well as the inner container, is made from durable stainless steel, so you can expect a long life of the whole set. Also, stainless steel makes the parts dishwasher-friendly, taking away the messy and time-consuming chore of handwashing.

Lastly, we would like to point out that the manufacturer provides a lifetime satisfaction warranty for this product. If you're not satisfied with your purchase, you can ask for a refund. No questions asked! Actually, you have nothing to lose.

No matter whether you lead an active lifestyle and need to warm up some healthy food at work after a morning workout or you are an avid car traveller, this warming lunch box with cutlery will tick all the boxes.

Wide Variety of Uses

The Zerodis 1.5L Car Electric Heating Lunch Box is perfect for a wide variety of applications from taking food to school or office to hosting a picnic in the wild or driving on the road for a long time. Warm, hearty, homemade meals will assist you.

Just plug the food container into the cigarette lighter to heat your food. You can choose either 12V or 24V power cable depending on the type of vehicle you're driving.

Another thing to admire is the waterproof design of the plug port, keeping it from the water and making the box completely safe. If you spill anything, you'll have nothing to worry about.

However, we suppose that the chances of spilling are minimal. The lid boasts a super tight seal and the four sturdy locks all across the sides ensure a secure fit.

Moving on, we would like to emphasize that this food warmer lunch box comes with double handles for easy transportation. And the generous set of extra accessories further adds to the convenience of use. The tableware includes not only a fork and a spoon but also chopsticks for the lovers of Asian food. All the inclusions can be neatly and hygienically stored in the top cover.

In a word, the Zerodis Heating Bento Box is thought-out to every detail. It could become an ideal choice for those who often eat Asian food. Not only does it come with chopsticks but it also has a separate tray that can fit various toppings for your noodles.

What Is a Food Warmer?

As much as we all love snacking, sticking to a healthy, balanced diet and living on homemade meals is where it is at. Sure, it can be a little difficult and/or time-consuming. You have to prepare these meals. You have to separate them. You have to bring them with you.

Aside from the preparing part, that's where these food warmers come in. Using these electric lunch boxes, you'll be able to bring with you your breakfast, lunch, and sometimes dinner. More importantly, you won't have to shove these delicious homemade meals into a microwave.

As the "warmer" part implies, these little machines are able to heat up your food. More often than not, it takes these warmers somewhere between 30 and 40 minutes. However, there are models that are able to do that much quicker.

What separates various food heaters isn't just the heating speed but also many little design solutions, including but not limited to different tiers/compartments that will let you separate your meals, snaps to keep these meals sealed, and a handle comfortable enough to carry the warmer.

Another handy thing, a travel mug can supply you with hot beverages on-the-go, while thermoses won't let you heat your food up but will prove much more practical on a camping trip.
