Product Review: Dalcini Stainless Steel Lunch/Snack Containers

Even though summer break has began not so long ago, I am already thinking ahead to the school semester that is to come!  I’m actually quite excited for my Daniel – he is starting Junior Kindergarten this year and he is SUPER happy!  So, to start practicing our lunch preparing and container opening/closing skills, we got some new containers for my little man;)  I do love the Mighty Hippo containers which I reviewed a few months back (See post: Product Review: Mighty Hippo Containers).  However, I saw these Dalcini Containers, which are completely stainless steel, and I thought they might be great to try!

COST

The 6 piece container set (3 food storage squares with 3 matching lids) cost CAD $58 on Amazon.  Pricey.

DESCRIPTION

The containers come in three different sizes.  The largest one can easily hold a sandwich and a side snack.  The smaller ones can fit good size snacks.

The containers are extremely lightweight.  The polished stainless steel lid surface is writable – any washable marker can be used for writing the contents or  sweet messages;)

DOES IT WORK?

Yes, the containers are great and I really like them.  There are a couple of hiccups, though.

PROS:

  • durable
  • high quality
  • sustainable
  • dishwasher safe
  • easy to clean
  • non-toxic – no plastic, paints, lead, BPA and phthalates
  • lifetime warranty

CONS:

  • Price is a turn off (but with all the pros listed above – I think it’s well worth it)
  • Being that the lids have no clasps – the containers can either be difficult to close, or hard to open (especially for little hands).  Practice does make perfect.  And you have to ensure you’re not overfilling.
  • The polished stainless steel is beautiful but it obvously shows all fingerprints once touched.

We have been using the containers every day just to use as snacks when we go out.  Daniel is getting really good at opening these!

I really like the fact that these are fully stainless steel – other brands usually offer plastic lids with stainless steel containers.   These little guys are good for the environment, long-lasting and most importatnly – good for my family!

I think I will be a returning customer – I’ll buy another set and my boys will be good to go in September!

Product Review: Audible – An Amazon Company (Audiobooks)

If you are a book lover like me, you know there is something absolutely romantic, calming and simply special about starting a new book.  Such a fantastic feeling!

Now, while I love to read (LOVE!), I’m also a full-time employed mommy of two, with many, many priorities on my list.  Needless to say,  it becomes a bit hard to find time to sit down and read every day, or at least read as much as I would like to.  No problems at all, though, as I think I have the perfect solution!

Restaurant Review: Nique

Another lunch with an awesome friend – this time at Nique (in my city of Hamilton, of course!). Located at the corner of James North and Vine, the location is perfect for a downtown lunch, brunch or dinner.

If it wasn’t for the darn wind, we would have gladly sat on Nique’s outdoor patio. It looks quite attractive!

We were not at all disappointed when we walked in, though!

Book Review: ‘E-Squared’ by Pam Grout

I admit, I’m an easy target for self-help, self-discovery, motivational books (as you may already know from reading some of my book reviews!) BUT – when I stumbled upon Pam Grout’s E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality, I wasn’t sure this book was for me. It seemed like it was almost too scientific. I mean – experiments? Hmm…

Restaurant Review: Planted in Hamilton

I have been longing for a healthy, pretty, yummy salad for a couple of days now.

Not one of those salads which calls itself a salad but it doesn’t even resemble one, you know?  I wanted something filling and delicious but also GOOD for my health.

So, I headed over to a local restaurant – Planted in Hamilton, where they pride themselves at being ‘Vegan. Gluten-Free. Awesome.’
