The Rubbermaid LunchBlox Salad Kit is designed to make taking lunch to school or work more convenient and organized. With a large 5.2 cup container, one dressing container and a third container for additional salad toppings, taking a healthy, vibrant salad for lunch to school or work has never been easier. All containers snap together around the included medium Blue Ice pack so your salad stays crisp and fresh without refrigeration. Designed to work together to save space, the kit will stay organized in any lunch bag. All BPA-free LunchBlox containers are leak-proof, microwave-, dishwasher-, and freezer-safe. Fits perfectly inside LunchBlox Small and Medium lunch bags. Kit includes 1 Salad Container (5.2 cup, 4.88" L x 5.55" W x 4.37" H), 1 Toppings Tray, 1 Salad Dressing Container (1.8 oz), 1 Medium Blue Ice (5.55" L x 4.71" W x 0.78" H)
Roomy and well planned. A definite buy!
The size doesn’t SEEM big, but when you actually load it up, it’s perfect and generous! There’s room for so many ingredients in the top. I have tomatoes in the small section, two vegetables in the large, but there’s too for a third or for croutons, then plenty of room for protein in the largest section–notice there’s room for a whole egg not it in half. It also includes a small container for dressing which can easily go loose in the lower section for salad or be packed to fit perfectly in the sections above.
WARNING: might contain TARDIS parts……
As another reviewer posted, it really doesn’t SEEM all that big.
Happy salad – compact and cool
I really like this for a lunch salad. I have seen some reviews saying that this is small for a salad. I like that the box is compact but in my opinion it holds a lot (And I am not a small eater). I think how much the bottom holds would depend on if you used more lofty greens, like Romaine. That said, I put the dressing on the side and fill all of the top containers with toppings of the day, like grilled chicken, nuts, fruit, dried fruit, veggies, cheese, etc. I fill the bottom with spinach or field greens usually with some shredded carrots and broccoli shreds, and I usually push them down a slight bit.
Good for storage but smaller than I hoped
I know the dimensions are listed in the description, but I was still expecting these to be a bit bigger. I prep salads for myself at the beginning of each week so I can just grab one from the fridge before work each morning, so I ordered 5 of them. They stack nicely, fit into a drawer for storage perfectly, but I do wish they were a bit taller. The insert for the toppings takes up a good amount of room, so the greens really have to be packed down tightly in order to fit a good sized salad in, which makes eating it pretty difficult since the ingredients just fit into the container once everything is put together. Overall, I like them and will keep them, but I’m hoping Rubbermaid makes and XL version sometime in the future.
Perfect for a lunch bowl.
These are perfect for a lunch bowl. I don’t use the ice tray much, i have to say, but the size is just right and i like the containers for dressing, individual items. The dressing container is just the right size. They are holding up well with repeated washings, though the bowl tends to bow in a bit over time. It is not affecting it’s functionality though, it still snaps to the lid just fine.
Bento Box with a built-in cooler
This nifty New Zealand version of the bento box has enabled me to enjoy healthier lunches at work. I’m able to to stow fresh veggies, fruit, a power bar, cheese cubes and cold-cuts in its two-story tight-sealing container. The rig’s nicest gimmick is a clip-on blue-ice pack that keeps the contents cool; I can leave it in my rucksack without having to resort to storing it in my office’s overcrowded refrigerator. The Lunch Blox is sturdy and washes out easily. Don’t be put off by the blue-ice brick’s overly snug fit to the bottom of the container: be patient and persistent, it will clip on easily once you’ve figured out how it works.
Love, love, love this concept!
Absolutely love this kit! Perfect for my lunches at the school, and it all stays cool and crisp inside due to the snap on bottom ice pack. Very convenient, easy to use, efficient, and I can make a really big salad in it, too! It appears smaller than you realize until you make and eat your salad later on. I love the additional ‘goodies’ snap on container as well, but I usually throw everything into my salad except for the croutons and dressing to keep things fast and easy. I even put my dressing container inside with the salad for more convenience and all stays cold. I will likely buy more of these as my husband is jealous and wants one for his work, too.
***EDIT: One of my iceblox recently stopped snapping onto the container. I do use these a lot, so this may be the result of frequent usage. The iceblox still keeps my food cold, however.***
Used everyday in kids lunchboxes and as almond snack containers in the car
These containers are made very well – no warpage of the tops, or splits or cracks as is common with some other food storage containers. They seal well, and wash easily. I don’t particularly care for the bottom of these containers, the extended plastic border that allows them to lock together when stacked. I only comment about this because it allows the container to collect more water when it is cleaned in the dishwasher (upside down). I really like the square (ish) profile because I can fit more containers in the square (ish) lunch boxes. Round containers waste valuable real estate in a lunchbox! I have used this size for nuts, candies, dried fruit, and blueberries. They are also nicely sized for baby/toddler portions.
They offer any easy way to keep your lunch organized and cool before …
I have always had an appreciation for the Lunch Blox products by Rubbermaid. They offer any easy way to keep your lunch organized and cool before your meal. Furthermore, they don’t leak! This particular product, the Salad Kit, seems to have gotten a lot of negative reviews here on Amazon, primarily because many people believe it to be too small. However, if the container were much larger, wouldn’t it be difficult to fit into a lunch bag and cart around to work or school? I cannot personally rate this product poorly, and I am normally quite critical of any ill-designed product. Over time, I have started taking chopped salads for lunch, which fit very nicely into a container this size. For my needs, it is great.
