Review

I am always looking for ways to improve how I store and transport food.  I have attended meetings in friend’s homes to watch product demos and I walk thru the kitchen section of local stores frequently.  I’ve even been one to do random searches on Amazon to see what pops up.  When I find something that works, and works well, I tend to stock up.  And, yes, I am that lady who puts masking tape on my dishes with my name written upon it… just in case a co-worker dares to THINK that something in the fridge has been there long enough to claim it.

 

When U Konserve/Kids Konserve offered to send me samples of their lunch-packing and food-storage line, I was quite happy.  I think I may have even said “Woo-Hoo!”  They send me a Medium To-Go Container, a set of Clear Large Food Kozy Wraps and a Stainless Steel Insulated Coffee Cup.  All of which are currently in my rotation of frequently used items.

 

The real show stealer was the Kozy Wraps.  I was confused by the concept, until I tried it.  Essentially, they are a circular piece of  LDPE #4 Plastic with Velcro closure.  You place your food item (sandwiches, fruit, veggies, etc…) in the middle and close the sides being sure to close the Velcro ends last.  I put a huge meatloaf sandwich in mine the other day and it still closed easily and stayed closed (without leaking any sauce) till I was ready to eat.  All I had to do was hand wash and dry the item to use again.  My sandwich was so secure I could have just placed the Kozy Wraped sandwich directly in my bag without worrying it would leak.  Oh, and for those who don’t want to dirty a plate, or are eating on public transit, the Kozy Wrap also functions as a place mat while eating.  I really like how functional they are!

The Medium To-Go Container was the perfect size for a sandwich, a good serving of fruit, or an average portion of left-overs at a restaurant.  I’ve enjoyed packing crackers and cheese for my son, fruit for a morning snack, and a small salad in mine.  The lid is made of LDPE #4 Plastic and the container is stainless steel.  I hand washed the lid to keep the plastic away from high temperatures, but the stainless steel container easily goes into the top rack of my dishwasher.

 

I’ve also used the Stainless Steel Steel Coffee Cup many times since it arrived.  I like that the cup can be used for cold items or hot.  My ice water has stayed cold for hours in this cup.  I don’t know how long it will keep my coffee hot since my coffee never lasts all that long, but I do know that the outside of the cup has stayed cool enough for me to use it without the need for a coffee cozy.  I like that the lid is made of food grade silicon instead of plastic (again, I’m not a fan of exposing plastic to high temperatures).  And, I really like that I can make a latte at home and easy transport it with me.  Every trip I take my own from home is one less coffee cup going into a trash can.

 

Who would like this gift?

I would give U Konserve/Kids Konserve products as a gift to an office co-worker, the high school student preparing to leave for college, the young adult entering the work force, those already in the work force who “brown bag” it, and the parent who sends lunches with their kids to school.

 

I think it would be fantastic to give a set of U Konserve/Kids Konserve products as a larger gift, but you could easily give an item or two for a Secret Santa gift or Stocking Stuffer.

Review

I’m mother to a fabulous little boy.  My fabulous little boy loves messy foods.  He isn’t all that messy when he eats them, but he seems to prefer foods that are juicy, slimy, squishy or crumbly.  I mentioned that he is a boy, right?

 

I’ve been struggling to figure out how to transport his favorite snacks for our little outings.  Plastic baggies make a mess of things if they didn’t seal well.  And those crumbly snacks would be all crumbles when we got to our destination.  A lot of plastic containers are full of BPA and/or PVC.  So, even if they did work well, the hyper vigilant mom in me wants to limit my son’s exposure.

 

Kids Konserve Stainless Steel Nesting Trio has been a wonderful addition to my kitchen.  If I want to take cottage cheese, pineapple, applesauce (we buy bulk, not individual snack size), or crackers, I absolutely can!  They won’t leak all over my purse.  They won’t be broken into a million pieces.  I love my nesting bowls!  And, my son loves playing with them as a stack toy.  And, no matter how much of a mess he makes, I love that I can toss these in the dishwasher for easy cleaning!

 

These lovely bowls and lids (as well as the rest of their eco-friendly line – see link to their website below) would be a wonderful gift for the college student in your life, the mom on the go (for her personal use and to send in her kid’s lunch box), or the busy professional who takes their lunch.  These are also fabulous for picnics and their durability makes them great for camping as well.
