It’s been months of waiting BUT finally U-KONSERVE has arrived! Top quality, stainless steel food containers in South Africa. It’s a dream come true for every “green mama” and just in time for #PlasticFreeJuly.
Last year we banned plastic water bottles opting for PURA Stainless Steel and this year we are pledging to reduce our plastic use even further, by switching over to reusable stainless steel food containers.
More about U-KONVERSE…
Designed in California and manufactured responsibly in China. U-KONVERSE stainless steel food containers are all made from 18/8 stainless steel. Most come with removable dividers and all items are BPA-free, dishwasher safe and leak-resistant!
In 2015 U-KONSERVE also earned certification as a B Corporation, an acknowledgment of their commitment to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency.
- Some of our favourite items available locally are: The 3L Divided Big Bowl. 3 Nesting Trio with 473ml, 266ml and 148ml bowls as well as the set of 2 Small Round Containers, 148ml each.
- For school and packed lunches: The 0.7L Divided Rectangle, 1.5L Divided Go-To Large and the 0.9L Divided Go-To Medium.
- Best for liquids: The Insulated Food Jar and Insulated Wine / Beverage Tumbler.
Keep your wine, ice-tea and cocktails ice cold while you sip. And never reheat another cup of coffee or tea… This little tumbler will keep it warm for hours – I tested it well! Every mama needs one for sure.
How to use your U-KONSERVE Stainless Steel food containers
- The Nesting Trio and 2 Small Round Container sets are perfect for travel. Store fruits, nuts, puffs and just about any other favourite snack. We also use these for storing hummus, guacamole and other spreads and sauces.
- The Divided Big Bowl is my favourite! Use the removable dividers to create 2 OR 4 sections OR use the container without any dividers for bigger items such as pies, tarts and even single layer cakes. This is a must for picnics, beach days, camping or sports events at school.
- Lunchtime doesn’t have to be boring either! The Insulated Food Jar keeps food hot OR cold for hours. Eliana can enjoy a proper meal after school in between extracurriculars and on days when Ava and I are on the go – I can still have her favourite pasta, soup or stew dish handy.
- The Divided To-Go Medium and Divided To-Go Rectangle work best for packed school lunches ensuring I can include a healthy variety and appropriate portion sizes.
- Lastly, the Divided To-Go Large. A larger lunchbox for adults and older kids OR the perfect leftover food storage container. With 1.5L capacity this container holds a lot.
