FAQ

 

What can I expect to receive in my Lunch Box package?

The Explorer comes with a removable silicone seal, the stainless frame, and 1 X small stainless interior container for dips, sauces, snacks, etc. 

The Snacker comes with a removable silicone seal, the stainless steel frame, one small square container, and one rectangular stainless container that both fit perfectly inside the lunch box.

 Are the lunch kits 100% Leakproof

Our lunch kits were designed with a removable silicone seal that not only makes thorough cleaning a breeze but also prevents foods from moving inside the container in between compartments. Additionally, the silicone seal allows for thicker soft foods like yogurt, hummus, cottage cheese, and foods with similar consistency to be packed right inside one of the compartments.  Runny, liquid-like foods with (especially those with lots of run-off - juices from frozen fruit) and soup-like foods should be placed in the side containers.  

Will the lunchboxes keep food hot?

Our lunch boxes were not designed to be insulated; however, stainless steel by nature does provide some insulation. I would recommend looking at our NEW Insulated Food Container (on PreOrder) if you are looking to send hot foods like soups, pastas, etc.

What materials are used in making your products?
It is goal to reduce plastics in the world, especially single use plastics. You can be certain that our products will NEVER contain any plastic materials whatsoever. 

Our silicone based products are made with 100% pure silicone that is compliant with LFGB Regulation 21CFR 177.2600.  This material is even a higher class than FDA as it goes one step further to remove additional toxins not approved for food contact by the EU Health and Safety Board. It is the safest silicone on the market, non-toxic, and has durable qualities that withstand normal use.

Our stainless steel products are made with 304 stainless steel.  Our food grade stainless steel has met all criteria to be deemed safe for food preparation, storage and dining. The most common food grade stainless steel is Type 304. But 304 grade stainless steel also goes by another name or code, 18/8 and 18/10 stainless steel. 

Where are your products made?

We are all about transparency and are committed to our mission just as much to our product and offering ones that can be trusted by our community.  We ensure our products are responsibly manufactured by our manufacturing partners abroad (China and India) and also use a contracted third party to conduct product safety and materials testing to ensure we are meeting the FDA regulations for our lunch box system - meaning they are all FDA Approved for food contact, meeting ad exceeding CPSIA (USA) and CCPSA (Canada) regulations.  

What are the dimensions of each lunch box?

The Explorer:  10in(L) X 7.25in(W)  X 2.25in(H). 

The Snacker (inches):  9(L) X 5(W)  X 2 (H)

Please check your lunch bag dimensions to ensure proper fit.

Are the products dishwasher safe?

While we all know that hand washing ensures a more delicate wash, all of our products are dishwasher safe.  You may experience fading with the silicone snack bags over time but the quality and function will not change.

Do I need to remove the silicone seal before placing in the dishwasher or cleaning by hand?

We recommend removing the silicone seal for cleaning.  To remove, peal a corner edge back and then remove with your hand.  

Can I place a gift order with multiple addresses?
If you wish to make multiple gift orders which will ship to many destinations, each order/destination must be placed separately.

Do you offer discounts on bulk orders by groups?
Discounts are available for schools, day cares, churches, camps, etc. A minimum order is required before bulk discounts are offered. Please contact us at wholesale@thegoodkiind.com

We offer FREE product exchanges.  The customer will need to pay their invoice for the exchange product prior to receiving a return label from TGK.
