I've already found a lunchbox system that works very well for packing lunches for my daughter (who doesn't have "warming" capability at her school, so the lunches are cold by default). However, I want to get more consistent about making sure that my husband makes it to work with a good lunch.
Right now for his lunches I use round and rectangular Pyrex containers with fitted plastic lids, but they aren't ideal; the lids leak anything too liquidy and the containers (having different shapes) are kind of clunky, meaning that they don't fit together nicely in a lunch bag or insulated cooler.
Since I'd frequently be packing "last night's dinner" as a leftover component, I'd like to find a lunchbox system that is oven-/microwave-/dishwasher-compatible. This essentially means that plastic (except for lids, maybe, which can be removed) is out. I've been looking through Amazon's selection with little luck.
Here's what I'm seeking feature-wise. I know that I probably won't find everything I'm looking for in one system, but I hold out hope nonetheless. :)
- Oven-safe (this probably means Pyrex, ceramic, etc.)
- Dishwasher safe
- Fitted lids
- Fit together in a carrying container
- Carrying container is insulated
- Not too flamboyant/low-profile design (this one's just a bonus for my husband's sake)
Do you know of any lunchbox systems that meet some/all these criteria? (I sure hope so!)
