Because the GEL-COOL lid contains non-toxic gel inside, it can be frozen and used to keep food cold. Once frozen, the lid can last over 5 hours in an environment of 25 degrees C, keeping your food under 15 degrees C.
Since the gel pack is located in the lid, it doesn't take up much space in the freezer. All you have to do in the morning is to pack the food in the box and close it with the frozen lid. It will keep food cold until lunch ensuring a refreshingly cool and delicious meal!
The box has a removable inner divider, and a lid with an inner flexible, hermetically sealing element that makes the lid almost 100% leak-proof. It also has clips to hold the containers tightly together.
This box can hold up to 400ml of food (approximately 1 3/4 cup). I love these boxes because I don't have to worry about meats or dairy products in warm temperatures. I know the food will keep safe until lunch time.
About Julien Chung Designs
I draw animals with hats. I collect comic books. And I still believe in Santa Claus.
In my more than 25 years as a professional designer and illustrator, I’ve created a lot of crazy characters. I’ve worked with a variety of clients, including book publishers, art directors, interior designers, licensing agents, craftspeople and product manufacturers (one of my designs appears on a limited-edition Coca-Cola glass). In addition to creating licensed characters for brands around the world, I also work for Montreal’s French-language newspaper La Presse where I design pages for the travel, food and home sections and illustrate all sorts of things like superhero ducks, globe-trotting pigs and frolicking ladybugs for La Presse+.
I find inspiration in children’s books, comics, street art, pop culture and nature—especially animals and the outdoors. In my world, cute animals with quirky personalities wander brightly colored scenes. My work is modern, cheerful and playful, appealing to people all over the world, across borders and cultural barriers.
I live in Montreal, Canada, where my wife and I share an empty nest with a lovebird named Cookie. When I’m not working, you can find me scribbling in a sketchbook, hunting for flea market treasures or planning my next travel adventure.
