The Jar which keeps the containers is great at insulating your food. It is a great way to pack a lunch every day. The separate compartments are roomy. The bottom two have insulated tops and keep food warm (or cold) as needed. Pack the whole thing the night before, store in fridge, and the food stays cold all through the day. If you're trying to get away from sandwiches and processed foods, this is a great way to go! Leftovers, veggies, oatmeal, etc. work great--it's actually fun to try and be creative with the possibilities. There's room in the top of the bag for larger items that won't fit in the containers, such as fruit or an additional snack. Cleans up easily.
One design aspect that needs work would be the main dish container with the thermal lid. It is not leak proof and thus any food placed inside needs to be dry or there is a high risk of spillage. That being said, the leaking wil not spread into the other food containers and it is easy to clean once found.
As others have mentioned it stacks four containers, with the bottom one being fairly small and somewhat spill resistant. Above that is the largest container with an insulated lid. That lid is in no way airtight so you'd better put something in that container that cannot leak. That lid also marks the barrier of insulation - the two tupperware-like containers will catch a bit of radiant heat so you may find whatever's in the larger one may become lukewarm, and the top container will probably hit room temperature or so. This is fine as long as you know it going in, as you have to play to its strengths.
The bottom container seems best suited for thicker, stewlike main courses - stew (of course), chili, butter chicken, curries, thick soups, chunky pasta sauces, etc. If it pairs with a side, all the better, as the large container above it can keep your rice or pasta or potatoes warm.
Above that, keep snacks that don't really need to be kept cold for the several hours they're likely to be in the container - vegetables, crackers, hard cheeses, and so on. Relegate cheese to the top container to avoid sweating.
My only real disappointment with the container is that it doesn't keep things piping hot by lunchtime - after a lot of experience with Zojirushi thermoses, which will keep undrinkably hot coffee too hot for half a day, the relatively weak heat seal on the middle container's lid is disappointing, as piping hot stew in the bottom container will be warm to hot in four hours and hot rice in the one above may just be warm. And that's inside on a desk, so if you keep it at colder temperatures outdoors I'd imagine it's thermal performance would be even more disappointing.

Nice product but only one leak proof container. A colleague taught me to use plastic wrap to seal other containers to prevent spillage. A bit of a hassle but it works.Published 3 days ago by Lava
