What our customers are saying
I just checked the forecast, and it looks like more snow could be on the way. If you plan on having another big snow day on the slopes, why not plan a little picnic? Lava Lunch lets you have hot food anywhere, anytime. Pack up some hot soup, stew or pasta to enjoy WARM at the park after sliding down the hills. After loading up on some carbs, I am sure your family will have even more energy to stay and play a little bit longer! Of course you child will also enjoy packing a hot lunch to dine on at school. When they are in the cafeteria looking out at flurries flying, they will have fond memories of the time they had a warm lunch outside in the winter weather.

My husband and I like to take road trips, and stopping to eat along the way can get expensive. Having good quality food totes, like Lava Lunch, will allow me to pack up some hot meals to take along with us. I love the 2 separate compartments that allow me to store both hot and cold foods. The bag is very roomy and made of easy to clean materials.
Whether it’s going to school, to work or a trip to the local park, we’re all trying to return to our old lives as safely as possible. One way of maintaining social distancing (while also saving money) is to bring along a hot meal with LavaLunch Totes. Designed to ensure you enjoy your meal at its freshest, LavaLunch containers feature separate compartments to keep food cold AND hot, thanks to their unique “Lava Rocks”: specially formulated plastic plates that you heat up in the microwave in the morning and then work to keep your food toasty for up to five hours. Invented by a mompreneur, LavaLunch is perfect for those with food allergies and intolerances, too!

My kids love their lava lunch bags. They say the food is not burning hot by the time they eat lunch but it is still very warm. I have packed leftover pizza in between the rocks (using non-stick foil wrapped around the slices). Most of the time I pack a grilled chicken sandwich with melted cheddar for my son and I wrap it up in foil then place between the rocks. I have a small stainless steel thermos brand thermos that is supposed to keep food hot, but it never did. I put macaroni and cheese in that thermos and nestle it between the rocks and it stays hot. Best of luck with future products!
My son is a happy camper !!! It keeps his hot lunches and saves him from eating the horrible school cafeteria food. However the side bottle holder reaps so easy since is a mesh cloth I recommend to insert a koozie on it to avoid problem, the green colour that I order it gets dirty so easy so we have to wash it very extremely often, I have to add an insulated clip on lunch bag to so he can bring his cold fruit, yogurt, etc wish the handle was a little bigger for that or they will add an extra compartment for the star goodies that do not need to be hot. Planning on buying the next one on black!!
My son is a fairly picky eater, so LavaLunch gives me the option to send hotdogs or quesadillas or mac n' cheese to school with him, knowing they stay nicely hot. I wrap the hotdogs or quesadillas in tin foil. I use glass containers for mac n' cheese. I put the whole hot lunch tote inside another larger tote for his water, apple, carrots and cukes, The "lava" rocks and glass container means the lunch is a bit heavier than his ordinary lunch box, but on days when I drive him to school, the weight isn't a consideration. He's always delighted on the days he gets his "lava lunch."
I ordered one lava lunch for my daughter. It's so good I ended up ordering one for everyone in the household. It's especially good for families on a budget. I pack leftovers which saves me a fortune. The family loves a home cooked hot lunch!
THIS WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!! My 10 yr old son is a picky eater...they only have hot lunch at school 1 day a week and he wanted a hot lunch every day....this was the answer... I fix his hot lunch at 6:30 a.m. and its still hot when he eats at noon. Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I thought the price of this was a little steep when I ordered it and to be honest I was skeptical that it would work...so glad I was proven wrong.
It took my husband a while to get the "hang" of this lunch bag and the "lava rocks". the first time around, he warmed up the lava rocks in the microwave, but didn't warm up the actual food before packing it with the lava rocks into the lava lunch bag. I think that's the trick - EVERYTHING, food AND lava rocks NEED TO BE WARMED IN MICROWAVE FIRST before packing to take to work/school. once he made sure to warm up EVERYTHING (i.e. food and rocks) then packed it in the lava lunch bag, he said it made all the difference! when he had lunch that day when he had warmed up everything, he said it was awesome and that he was the envy of all the guys on the job site :) I felt kind of bad though thinking of all those guys, just like my Hubby, that deserve a hot lunch while they slave away all day outside :( so I told my Hubby to make sure they all knew what the brand was so THEIR wives could buy them a lava lunch sack too ;) I gave it four (4) stars only because of the time it takes to warm everything up and throw it together. Our mornings are SUPER rushed and it would've been nice if we didn't have to warm the food too. otherwise, perfect product :).
Just as advertised. Comes with two lava rocks and simple microwaving instructions for them. No complaints and now i have a great simple way of taking my meals with me and not worrying about finding a microwave or eating cold food.
Keeps your food warm by lunchtime, not hot. It comes with two lava rocks, so no need to buy them separately. Overall, it's good. Probably the best-heated lunch sack there is.
Not sure what all of you are doing wrong but my son LOVES this lunch box and he said it keeps his lunch warm until it is time for him to eat. We normally send him with leftovers and heat it up before he leaves for school and then heat up the rocks and put them on each side of the stainless steel container I bought and it works perfectly. The main reason why I bought this lunch kit was my son had lost a lot of weight and when I went and looked at the calories in the school lunch most of them were between 2000 and 3000 per meal I had to look for something different and I knew he would not want to eat a sandwich every day. This has been a Godsend for us.
This is the second one we've purchased. My kids have a healthy, WARM lunch from home, every day at school. Love this item! (Or should I say "Lava this item!)
