Steambox Self-Heating Lunchbox Announces Availability at CES 2023

The world’s first rechargeable electric lunchbox to use steam,  Steambox, is now available to order in USA, Canada, and Europe. Announced during CES 2023, the Steambox’s rechargeable system that can heat up to 3 meals on a single charge will also launch in early 2023 on Amazon.

Now, consumers are fully in charge of what, when and where they eat with the Steambox. Users of the Steambox can reheat a delicious and nutritious meal within minutes with a simple touch of a button or a swipe on a phone.

How does the Steambox work?

Simply pack a meal inside of Steambox, fill up the small water container and take off. When you are starting to get hungry, you add the water onto a heating element and set the timer. Depending on the type of food and starting temperature, an average meal takes 15 – 20 minutes to heat up through steam. Steambox also has an app to control the device (with live tracking) and to gain access to recipes.

Compared to conventional or microwave heating, steaming makes food taste better and preserves more nutrients throughout the heating process. You insert your food into one of Steambox’s Food Containers, which are dishwasher safe, BPA-free and food grade. Other features of Steambox include 99.9% leak proof sealing, portability, and a sleek modern design (organic bamboo).

Steambox’s vision is Freedom of Food, enabling consumers to enjoy hot and healthy meals, no matter the circumstances. Users range from foodies and meal preppers to outdoors adventurers and office workers. The one thing that unites them? Passion for hot food. Steambox claims that most of their customers used to struggle with unhealthy or expensive take-out food.
