Thinksport GO2 Travel Container: A safer & highly functional lunch box


Do you like what you see in this photo? This is a Thinksport GO2 Travel Container. I prepare my toddler's breakfast before he wakes up, pack them nicely in different compartments, and wait until he wakes up before I present this new meal container to him. I'm sure he will be surprised.

Before I show you what happens next, let's take a closer look at this nifty pantry and travel gadget.

Thinksport GO2 Travel Container

This is how the container looks like before it is opened up.


Specifications

  • GO2 container: 24.13 cm x 6.35 cm x 15.24 cm
  • Fork & Spoon: 16.51 cm
  • Weight: 0.62 kg
Materials

  • 304 Stainless Steel (18/8) for both inner plate and fork and spoon
  • Polypropylene for outer casing of GO2, GO2 Lid, and Fork/Spoon handle
  • Silicone rings built into the lid to seal the compartments
  • Made in Korea


Thinksport products apply strict material standards. Thus, this GO2 Travel Container is free from phthalates, BPA, BPS, PET, lead, melamine, nitrosamines or biologically harmful chemicals. More about this later.

Design


This is how the container looks like after it is opened up – the orange polypropylene outer casing, the stainless steel inner plate, and the lid complete with a pair of fork and spoon.


This is the outer casing, very sturdy and well-designed. You will see later how the stainless steel inner plate fits into this outer casing nice and tight.


The GO2 container has an anti-skid design, look at that four little stars at the four corners. Why? Quoting Thinksport, "Because nobody wants their meatballs on the floor." This is so true and especially true if the container is handled by young kids.


This is the stainless steel inner plate, large enough to make it for us moms to fill it up with different types of food with appropriate portions. This is a very good feature as one won't over-eat when their meal is packed in this way. I'm actually thinking to pack my lunch to office in this container. Another plus point, this inner plate is designed to be removed for easy cleaning.


You can see how the stainless steel inner plate fits into the outer casing nice and tight. This double layer design is very useful because it can keep food, especially soups or stew-y kind of meals warm for slightly longer. This is a good feature for kids who tend to take longer time to finish eating their meal. Cool!

Another point, you can easily fill the inner plate with hot food without worrying that the container will become too hot to handle because the outer casing will prevent the heat from scorching your hands.


The GO2 container also comes with a pair of stylish, ergonomic fork and spoon that fits easily and tightly into its own compartment. The clear top makes it obvious that they are there. So, you don't have to worry about forks and spoons getting lost during travel. This is a cool idea. Now I don't need to pack them separately in another pouch and end up couldn't find them anywhere when I need them urgently. Haha.


Lastly, this is the most important feature of the Thinksport GO2 Travel Container. Unlike many other lunch-style boxes, the GO2 container seals off each compartment. You can literally fill each compartment with different colored water, shake it and not have the colors mix because there is an embedded silicone matrix to seal off each area completely. You won't get your food mixed up ever again. I for one, never ever like my fresh fruit cuts tainted by chicken curry or my cheese sandwich soggy from yogurt, etc.


Now, let's come back and see how my toddler enjoys his breakfast in his GO2 container. In the largest compartment, I prepare an open-faced sandwich with natural cream cheese, whole-wheat cheese biscuits, and roasted cashew nuts. In the slightly smaller second compartment, I prepare hard-boiled chicken egg and quail eggs, and assorted Cheddar cheese cubes that I cut from a bigger block. Lastly, in the last compartment, I prepare fresh strawberries and a tiny box of raisins. Such hearty and healthy breakfast! Eh, I should have added some greens!


Okay, close it up. I shake the box and true enough, nothing get mixed up.


See my toddler's precious reaction when he sees the box.

Boy: Wah, mama, nice present! What is this box?
Me: It's breakfast? You want to eat?
Boy: Yes! I want to eat breakfast.


He gets pretty excited with the new fork and spoon and starts digging into his food. First thing first, cream cheese!


He's still trying to make up his mind…


...and finally, he decides to poke the biggest egg with the fork.

"Mmmm, yummy, mama!"


And of course, strawberries dipped in cream cheese.
