Is the Glass Lunch Pot microwave safe? Yes, the Borosilicate glass bowl/pot, wood fibre base and silicone lid are all microwave safe. However, the steel lid is not microwave safe. Lift the silicone lid slightly and push the tab detail inside the glass bowl rim to create a gap. This ensures that the lid does not get sucked into the bowl during microwaving. Keeping the silicone lid on during microwaving ensures that the heated food does not splatter the inside of your microwave. The wood fibre base does not hold heat and makes it easy to remove the bowl from of the microwave without burning your hands. Two minutes maximum in one go. Stir and repeat if further heating is required.
Is the Glass Lunch Pot oven safe Yes, the Borosilicate Glass pot (on its own) is oven safe. WARNING: Glass is susceptible to thermal shock. AVOID SUDDEN CHANGE IN TEMPERATURE – it will cause the bowl/pot to break. When heating food make sure you Preheat the oven first. DO NOT use the grill or allow direct contact with gas flames. Do not place glass in preheated oven directly from the fridge (allow it to adjust to room temperature before placing in an oven). When you remove the glass from the oven DO NOT place on a cold surface or run under a cold tap.
Is the Glass Lunch Pot dishwasher safe? Yes, all parts are dishwasher safe, but we recommend top rack. To avoid thermal shock (sudden temperature change which will cause the glass to break), be careful to allow glass to cool after cycle, before exposing it to cold elements such as food or placing it in a fridge.
Is the Glass Lunch Pot freezer safe? Yes, all parts are freezer safe. Be careful to avoid overfilling the bowl with liquid based foods as these will expand when frozen (by approximately 9%). Please allow to defrost fully before microwaving/re-heating (do not defrost in microwave).
Is the Glass Lunch Pot BPA and BPS free? Yes, all parts are BPA and BPS free.
How do I make the stainless steel lid easier to turn open? If your lid is stiff to turn and difficult to open, wipe the inside thread surface with vegetable oil and then wipe dry. This will make it easier to open. Do not attempt to close the steel lid onto the wood fibre base, without both the glass and silicone lid being applied.
What is the wood fibre bowl made from? The base bowl is made from a mixture of polypropylene and 30% sustainably sourced PEFC wood fibre.
Can I get replacement glass bowls if mine breaks? Yes, we stock replacement glass inner parts. Please go to our REPLACEMENT PARTS area in the SHOP menu drop down.
SPLATTER FREE MICROWAVING
The silicone lid has a clever air release flap so it can be kept on the glass during microwaving/oven heating and avoid food splattering.
LIGHTWEIGHT & STRONG GLASS
The inner container is made from hand blown high quality Borosilicate glass that is lightweight, strong, recyclable and stain resistant.
SUSTAINABLE NON-SLIP BASE
The base is made from polypropylene and 30% sustainably sourced wood fibre (PEFC). It includes a silicone ring to help further protect the glass if dropped and stops the base from slipping/moving if on a vibrating surface like a train or airplane table.
