Is the Sandwich Box dishwasher safe? No, both the Sandwich Box and the bamboo board are not dishwasher safe.
Is the Sandwich Box leak proof No, but our Box Appetit and Bento Boxes are.
How should the box and bamboo board be treated and cared for? Clean your box and bamboo board with hot soapy water or a dilution of bleach and water (1 tablespoon of bleach per gallon / 4.5l of water). Do not leave the board soaking in water and make sure to dry it with a tea towel or kitchen roll after cleaning. To keep the bamboo board in a good condition, we recommend using a food safe mineral oil and applying with a cotton cloth once a month (if you are using the board regularly). Make sure you wipe off any excess oil. This will ensure that it does not dry out and crack.
What are the benefits of bamboo as a board material? Technically speaking, bamboo is a grass and not a wood. It is a sustainable resource due to the fact that it grows so quickly and can be harvested. It is a very dense wood and this means that it holds less moisture compared with other wooden boards. It also makes it less prone to warping (if cared for correctly).

The stainless steel box protects the contents, and the silicone strap provides added security.
