Heat Your Lunch With Heatbox

One of the main problems that lunchboxes have is the fact that you won’t be able to heat up your food when it gets cold if you don’t have access to a microwave oven. This Dutch-designed Heatbox addresses that problem. Now, people can “enjoy a warm and healthy meal anywhere, anytime.”

Users start by pouring 20 ml (0.7 oz) of water into the Heatbox, then adding its stainless steel inner container, which contains their food. One lid is then placed on the inner container – sealing the food inside – and another lid (made of bamboo) is placed on the outside of the Heatbox, keeping the water contained. The whole thing can then be carried around, without anything leaking out.
The Heatbox is the product of a successful Indiegogo campaign and is now available for preorder, priced at US$149 – shipping should commence by the middle of this year. It's demonstrated in the following video.

A nice idea... but it seems like a way to spend a lot of money to fix an issue that is already mostly fixed by something much, much cheaper. A properly used (food intended) thermos flask/container (heated with boiled water first) will keep things hot for between 8 and 10 hours. And if you had access to boiling water as this seems to suggest then you could use two and heat the other/swap between the two for longer.... and they are a fraction of the cost. As in $20USD will get you a very nice one. (ooh wow, they reckon the "ultimate" ones will keep hot for 24 hours)
