Travel series: Relax Stainless Steel Thermal Food Jar

My trusted, must-have travel necessity.

These two Relax Stainless Steel Thermal Food Jars are my trusted, must-have necessity during traveling - both long-haul or short-haul - since my boy started on his solid food journey. :)

I used the 300ml Relax Stainless Steel Thermal Baby Food Jar when my boy turned 8 months until 12 months. Between 6-7 months of age, he was mainly on fruits and vegetables purees, so I only stored his food in BPA-free Tupperware containers when I packed his food to the babysitter.

When he turned 13 months, I bought the 500ml Relax Stainless Steel Thermal Food Jar because he ate so much more food. Now at 19 months, he can eat the entire jar of food in two separate meals. :)

Let me introduce you to my precious food jars.

300ml Relax Stainless Steel Thermal Baby Food Jar

Product features:
  • Double layer 18.8 food-grade premium stainless steel
  • Vacuum insulation for maximum temperature retention, hot or cold
  • Silicone seal ring locks in freshness and flavor
  • Wide mouth for easy scooping and cleaning
  • Made from BPA-free materials
  • LFGB (Germany) APPROVED
  • FDA (USA) APPROVED

Insulation test result:
  • 3 hours: ± 68°C
  • 6 hours: ± 56°C
  • Initial water temperature: ± 96°C
  • Environment temperature: ± 30°C
The results above are for reference purpose, actual results may differ accordingly.

My verdict:

On weekends, when hubby, the little one and I go for our weekly outings at shopping malls, I'll use this small jar to pack my boy's meal. We usually go out after lunch, so I just need to pack his dinner.

What I usually do is that I'll pack steaming hot (just cooked) meal, mainly meat/vegetables mixed grains porridge right into the jar and screw the lid tight. After 4-5 hours, when I open the jar, the food inside is not steaming hot anymore, but it's still very warm, just nice for consumption.

Or sometimes, when I want to pack beehoon or mee sua soup for him to bring to the babysitter, I'll pack the noodles (cooked and drained) in this small jar separately, whereas the main meal (soup) will be kept in a bigger jar (shown below). By doing so, the noodles won't suck up all the soup, making the whole meal unpleasant.


500ml Relax Stainless Steel Thermal Food Jar

Product features:
  • Double layer 18.8 food-grade premium stainless steel for long lasting usage
  • Vacuum insulation for maximum temperature retention, hot or cold
  • Silicone seal ring locks in freshness and flavor
  • Includes 1 stainless steel spoon
  • Made from BPA-free materials
  • LFGB (Germany) APPROVED
  • FDA (USA) APPROVED

Insulation test result:
  • 3 hours ± 78°C
  • 6 hours ± 67°C
  • Initial water temperature: ± 96°C
  • Environment temperature: ± 30°C
The results above are for reference purpose, actual results may differ accordingly.

My verdict:

This bigger jar is very good because its capacity is just nice for my boy's two meals. Same as the small jar, I'll pack steaming hot (just cooked) food right into the jar and screw the lid tight.
According to my babysitter, even after 5 hours or so, the food inside is still warm and she doesn't need to reheat at all when it's time for my boy's early dinner about 5pm. (Yes, he will eat another round of light dinner at home with us at about 7:30pm.)

If our weekly outings span from lunch to dinner time, I'll use this bigger jar to pack his meals. To avoid contamination and possible spoilage from used spoons, I will scoop out his lunch's portion with a clean spoon into a bowl and screw the jar back tightly.

    1. Hi Nicole, nope. This brand's food jar cannot cook porridge. They can't retain as high heat as Zojirushi (http://www.joycescapade.com/search/label/Zojirushi).
