Good news: There's no reason for ho-hum midday chow-downs with the bestselling Crockpot Electric Lunch Box. Right now, Amazon and Walmart are offering it for just $40, down from $45. Now that we're fully into back-to-school season, this lunchbox will make a great gift for the teacher in your life. It's reviews show it's adored by thousands of fans, including teachers and truckers. Read on to see why.
This awesome lunch box keeps your food warm on the go and comes in six different colors.
Not sure what an "electric lunch box" is? It's a pretty simple yet brilliant gadget — and this one has more than 14,000 five-star reviews to back that claim up. With a 20-ounce capacity, it's kind of like a mini slow cooker, but it's designed to warm up your food, not cook it — perfect for people who need a way to preserve the deliciousness of their sammy or leftovers.
"I purchased this because I do not have access to a microwave or cooking appliance at work," shared one rave reviewer. "I use it at least once a week. It works great. I have used it for canned soups, pasta and leftovers."
Inside the warmer is a metal bowl to hold your food. The lid on the inner bowl (along with the outer lid) minimizes spills and leakage when you're out and about, while the handle makes grabbing it to go a snap.
"I bought this for my significant other because I felt bad packing him sandwiches for lunch on a daily," shared a happy shopper. "I love that there is an inner lid to prevent leaks. I like that it separates from the heating element so I don’t have to worry about damaging it."
There are no buttons to push — just a detachable cord that wraps around the base for easy storage. Just plug it in about 45 minutes before you're ready to eat and you'll have yourself a hot meal when it's time to break for lunch. Being able to do that is a game changer for rave reviewers who work in a variety of industries.
"I am a teacher with only a 20-minute lunch period, and there are three microwaves in a building for 80 people," wrote a delighted educator. "I absolutely love that I can have hot soup right at my desk. I leave the warming part at work and just bring home the inner bowl and lid to wash everyday."
"Most convenient little thing ever!" wrote an excited shopper. "I'm a local truck driver, and I work up to 12 hours in a day. It's nice to put leftovers in this and plug it into my inverter in the truck while I work and have hot tasty food by the middle of my shift."
Just plug this baby in 45 minutes before lunchtime and open it up to reveal a warm, comforting meal.
