“Biome Stainless Steel Nesting Containers are such a great solution to meeting all your lunch container needs. The containers are made out of brushed 304 food grade stainless steel and they have flexible silicone lids. Stainless steel is a fantastic safe material for use as a food container as there are no chemicals that can migrate into your food.
With 5 sizes to choose from, including a dip size and an oversized 680ml container, you can pretty much pack anything into them you need to.
The best thing about these containers for me is the lid. Being silicone, the lid is able to form an air tight and leak-proof seal. As the lid is soft, my 4 year old can still open it easily by herself and put it back on when she takes her lunch to school. The flexible lid is also very forgiving and enables the lid to go on even when everything doesn’t fit exactly flat inside, allowing a bulge in the top. This made a huge difference to me as I sometimes pack some frozen things for my son in them or pop a whole washed apple in and containers with hard plastic tops just don’t work sometimes.
The steel in these containers is just a tiny bit thinner than some, whilst still being strong. I found this an advantage as they were noticeably lighter than some other stainless steel containers I have and yet I still had no denting issues.
Finally, what I love about these is that they pack away like little babushka dolls into the biggest container snugly, lids and all, which makes for very convenient and compact storing. These would be perfect to take away on holiday so that you have all the containers you need to carry snacks once you are there.
A highly recommended non-toxic lunchtime product which is compact, child friendly, multi-use and leak-proof.”
“This set of nesting containers is a great idea for all sorts of food storage. Made of stainless steel but light enough to carry with you. I like the silicone lids – they are so easy to attach and remove. Great for the kids to use. The stacking feature is great for storage. I love the tiny little container (50ml) – a size you don’t often see in stainless steel. A versatile set of containers.

“This is such a joyful product – unpacking the containers is like playing with Russian dolls – they keep getting smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller. I love the gorgeous snowflake patterns on the individual lids – each pattern is different. The fact that they all fit into the one larger container is a fantastic storage-saving solution. I’ve been using these containers for everything from baby food to snacks to lunch and leftovers. And the best part is they are hardy enough to last a long time – maybe even a lifetime!”
“Built to last & look great! These containers are ideal for families & anyone who loves to prepare their own food to take to work or simply to store in style at home. We make a lot of food & often have leftovers for someone to take to school or work. The containers also store really well as the smaller containers can be placed inside the larger containers giving you more room for other items. The soft cap is a leak-proof silicone lid, both the stainless steel & the silicone cap can be recycled via Biome. I have frozen some food in these tubs & the plastic is still soft when you get it out. Great product!”
“So great for our snacks on the go and baby’s leftovers. They really are leak free!”
