The world’s most flexible lunchbox comes from Norway



You spend time each morning carefully crafting your lunch sandwich just the way you like it, then you wrap it in waxed paper or a plastic zipper bag and put it in your lunchbag.  When lunchtime comes, you pull out your lunch only to discover your sandwich has fallen apart into a mess, with condiments on the outside of your bread and everything else stuck to the wrapper.  If you had a Compleat FoodSkin from Unikia, your sandwiches would arrive to lunch looking just as you assembled them.  Unikia says the FoodSkin “has a highly elastic silicone skin that holds your sandwich together.  It has a perfect fit for any food, and is completely flat when empty.”  Unikia is a Norwegian company, but they ship globally.  The Compleat FoodSkin is available in blue, mint, or purple for €24.95 ($34.10 US).

    $34 – for a lunch box!!!

    Well, if you pay $12 for lunch, you break even after less than a week.

    But you get free coffee refills for you $12 lunch!

    You have to also add the cost of the larger lunchbox/cooler you will put your fruit and veggies and drinks into along side your $34 “lunch box”. Let’s just call it a “sandwich box”

    And you have to add the time it takes to clean out the sandwich box. I mean suppose you make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or meatball sandwiches with lots of tomato sauce. You’ll a real mess on you hands when you go to pack the next days sandwich. I mean … YUK!

    You know, I was all over the idea of a silicon “sandwich” box till you got to the $34 price tag!

    Think I’ll stick with sandwich wrap and add a couple of rubber bands to keep things in place … maybe put everything into a metal, “Super Woman” lunch box (with a matching thermos). Just like times long past.

    Or … maybe I’ll go out to lunch with my fellow workers in a sit down restaurant that serves cafe lattes.

    …. decisions …

    One thing about a pricey lunch box is that it guilt you into making your own lunch: you can’t justify paying $34 for it and let it sit at home.

    So in a sense, a $34 lunch box may end up saving you more money than a $10 one. Plus, if it’s well made and last longer than a $10 lunch box, it’s more satisfying to own and use.

    What about my potatoe chips? For my lunch, this is an impractical solution :)
