I purchased this food jar for my first grade daughter to use at school so she could have a variety of lunches. I have used it for a full year already and will use it next year as well. I have put all kinds of things in here from soups to mini corndogs. It kept them all hot until lunch time. Not once has my daughter said that her lunch was cold. I asked her every time I put something new in the food jar. Lunch time was three in a half hours from when school started. It has only leaked when filling it up too full or when putting the lid on incorrectly. As for the durability, the design is still fully in tact. Hello Kitty has not come off in washing. It still looks new. The thermos was mostly hand washed for use for the next day and put in the dishwasher once a week. This is a very good product. I'll be purchasing the matching drink bottle this year.
We love our food funtainers! I have 3 kids who take lunches & found that if you screw the lid on too tight, it will leak. Just tighten until it is secure. Also, if you fill the container with boiling water and put the lid on (for 10 minutes) and then empty and fill with your food, it will stay HOT for at least 4 hours. My kids have actually burned their tongues on the food I made at 7am.
I read these reviews, and many of them are for the cups, not these containers .. my daughters each have one, for their lunches at PRE-K and K-garten this year .. and we haven't had ONE ISSUE, no breakage, no leakage, no cracks, falls, spills .. no drama .. I love this product, and am thankful they aren't like BACK IN THE DAY thermos products with all that GLASS, that I would break when I was young ..
I brought this for my 7 yr old daughter for school in September 2012. She loves it and uses it EVERYDAY even on the weekends. It is now March 2013 and haven't had any problems. It keeps her drinks cold for well over 10 hours. Very sturdy and washes well. If I knew it was this well put together I would have brought more back then. Hard to find now...Trying to find more of this item with different characters.
I bought this exact product, just a different picture, about 5 years ago. I have been really careful with it & so far,there's only one dent & a couple scratches. I really wish that they had made the picture a little more durable however. Makes me really sad that there is a scratch on her face. But it is pretty old. Over all I am just as thrilled with this product as I was the day I bought it. I will be purchasing a matching, or semi matching lol, "Food Tainer" for myself to take to work & a matching set for my son when he starts school as well. Very, very pleased! [...]
I absolutely love Hello Kitty. I take this funtainer with me most of the time when I go to school.
Although I am not too fond of the design, and believe that Target should have ordered different designs . . . the product overall is still excellent.
What makes it so good?
1. There are no water spots on the outside. So the FUNTAINER stays dry when the drink is cold. And my hands are not wet from holding it.
2. The ice still does not melt after 5 hours. And I would still be able to enjoy a cold drink.
3. The cap is sealed in tightly so the water won't leak.
It is perfect for children, it only takes one push to get it open.
