“The first thing that struck me about the Cheeki Double Stack Lunch Box is that it is so well made. It really feels like it’s made to last a lifetime. The metal is thicker than other lunchboxes, the parts fit seamlessly together and the clips are easy to use but strong. It’s beautiful quality.
Each layer of this lunchbox has a 500ml capacity and it is open inside with no dividers. Whilst I enjoy putting multiple things inside a lunch box, sometimes dividers are a little tricky to clean depending on how they are designed and can limit what you can pack into it, so I definitely don’t feel it’s a negative with this lunch box.
No completely stainless steel lunch box that I know of is leak proof and this is the same. You really need a silicone seal to make it leak proof, however by adding a seal, you add the increased chance of mould and a decreased life span. The two smaller Biome nesting containers (50ml and 100ml) fit inside this lunchbox perfectly and I’m sure other options would too if you wanted to pack a salad and bring a dressing to put on.
This lunchbox is spacious without being prohibitive. It is on the heavier side due to the thicker metal used, however it would last a child through their whole schooling. (My 4 year old can open and close the clips, so you can start them with it young! Though the capacity is a bit too big for her just yet.) I love that there are no cracks for bacteria to hide and this is super easy to clean and dishwasher safe.
I highly recommend this beautiful quality, robust, practical non-toxic lunch box.”
“A great looking lunch box and easy to use. Mr 3 tested it for me and said it was “easy peasy, lemon squeezy” to use. He could open the clips, levels and lid easily and put it back together. It has good size compartments for all sorts of lunch / food options. Solid construction but not overly heavy. A great big size lunch box.

“This double-decker lunchbox is really tough and hardy – I can see it carrying a lifetime of lunches! The size is great – I have used it several times to pack multiple sandwiches for family picnics. My husband also uses it for taking leftovers to work – it’s great for curries so you can pack the rice and curry separately.
Unfortunately, the hinges are a little too tight to unlock for our 3-year-old son to use it at pre-school, but I feel it would be ok for a primary schooler. It’s also a pity that you can’t use the top lunchbox separately without the hinges. Other than that, I love the durability and lack of plastic on this product.”
“Smart & the perfect size for school lunches. Eco-friendly & BPA free, the tough stainless steel will survive school bags so there will be no squashed sandwiches! Ideal for packing dry foods like pasta salad, couscous, vegetables, but store the dressing separately. Liquids are not so good for out & about as it doesn’t have a leak-proof seal, but it is ideal for storing liquids in the fridge as the container is kept upright. Fantastic thank you! This is a great product, my partner took this to work with rice & curry in it, he stuffed it in his bag on the side & didn’t have any issues with leaking. Highly recommended!”
“Such a stylish alternative to the standard lunch box. This is great for my teenager who is too cool for a plastic lunch box!”
