Whether you're meal prepping for the week or packing your kid's lunch the night before school, having the right containers for storage and transport is just as important as the meal itself. Sure, you might have a hodgepodge mix of leftover takeout containers to use–but those are hardly as sturdy or compact as you need them to be. Ideally, a good box lunch container should be suitable for both wet and dry foods, contain compartments to separate mains from sides, be microwave safe, sturdy enough to withstand the commute to the communal office fridge or kid's locker, and compact enough to fit into a standard lunchbox or cooler bag. While we can't all live in an ideal world, there are a few happy mediums. So we put a few box lunch containers to the test and found a few of the best available. Check them out below.
