Portion Perfect Stackable Meal Tower Review

Thank you, SmartPlanet, for providing me a Portion Perfect Stackable Meal Tower Review for my review. All opinions are my own.

SmartPlanet did it again! They came up with an amazing product, called the Stackable Meal Tower, that is perfect for on the go lunches and for on the go snacks while driving around for work all day or running errands. Thanks to SmartPlanet, I get to provide my fabulous readers a Portion Perfect Stackable Meal Tower Review and keep reading because I may have a surprise at the end of my post.

The Portion Perfect Stackable Meal Tower is the perfect gadget to use for when you want to pack on the go snacks instead of spending money on high priced and unhealthy snacks while you are away from home. It has 4 containers. Three containers are 1 cup each and the remaining cup is 1 1/2. The cups twist onto each other to create a stackable tower. They are super easy to fill and twist. One thing I’d like to mention, however, is that it does say they are safe in the dishwasher, but I only hand wash mine.

As I stated above these are perfect for on the go snacks for yourself, your kids, or while traveling.

Bottom

I love the design the bottle has. It sits up and it fits into cup holders in your car, stroller and backpack. When you stand up the bottle it will not collapse like the plastic water bottles will do especially when the summer hits plastic tends to soften he bottom will fall over the heat in plastic bottles tends to swell the bottom taking away the ability to stand properly, so to me this stainless steel bottle is a plus.

Airtight cap

I really like the b>ottle, but I was a little disappointed that the cap has no place for a straw to slide into for easy drinking, but I see in the website they have an awesome collection of styles running anywhere from 15.99 to 24.99 and up. I also figured maybe the bottle cap is designed to keep the beverage cold or hot. I shall see how this will work for me.

You can check out their website  to see the other items they have. They have all kinds of products to keep food hot or cold and the bottles are easy to clean using a simple bottle brush you can find in baby isle of your department store.

NDK Original Vacuum Bottle from Smart Planet GIVEAWAY!

I blogged about glass bottles earlier this week, and the theme of the month has been about learning to avoid BPA in all of its nefarious shapes and forms in the kitchen.. but what happens when you want to take your hot or cold beverages on the go?!

For those instances where glass may not be the wisest option due to the breakage factor (going hiking, for instance) the next best option to avoid BPA and maintain a sustainable lifestyle is… *drumroll*… stainless steel!

How Vacuum Bottles Work

This bottle really ideal for on the go drink storage, ESPECIALLY now that it is fall, with winter approaching, and hot drinks are pretty much mandatory this time of year, haha. A vacuum bottle is a super-insulated flask. The bottle has an inner chamber and an outer case separated by two layers of stainless steel with a vacuum in between. There’s also a tight, screw-down stopper on the top.
These few, simple features prevent virtually all heat transfer by either conduction, convection, or radiation. The vacuum prevents conduction. The tight stopper prevents air from entering or leaving the flask, so convection isn’t possible either. There’s virtually no way heat can escape from a vacuum flask and a hot drink stored inside will stay steaming hot for several hours.
Flasks also work for cold drinks. If heat can’t escape from a vacuum flask, it follows that heat can’t penetrate into a flask from outside either. The sealed stopper stops heat getting in by convection; the vacuum stops conduction, and the metal lining between the outer case and the inner chamber stops heat radiating in either.
Whether you like your coffee piping hot or icy cold, vacuum bottles are an absolutely brilliant way to keep your drinks just the way you want. This particular bottle keeps cold liquids at their initial temperature for up to 24 hours and hot liquids at their initial temperature for up to 12 hours!
And did I mention that this bottle is BPA free, and available in 4 fun colors?! (Black, white, grey and purple!)

More Reasons to Choose Stainless Steel Bottles

This particular bottle is made with 18/8 stainless steel – which means the bottle is comprised of 18% chromium and 8% nickel. The chromium binds oxygen to the surface of the product to protect the iron from oxidation (rust). Nickel also enhances the corrosion resistance of the stainless steel.  (The higher the nickel content, the more resistant the stainless steel is to corrosion.) This is a fairly common type of stainless steel for drinking vessels, and it is completely SAFE and environmentally friendly!
When it comes to reducing waste, saving money and being healthy, stainless steel bottles are most definitely one of the first and most important steps you could take. According to some estimates, if you traditionally purchase bottled water, switching to a reusable water bottle and simply using water filters will save you tons of cash, up to $200 a month depending on your current buying habits!
And of course, it means far less waste: 30 billion plastic water bottles are thrown away each year, and it takes 1.5 million barrels of oil to produce all that plastic and about 1,000 years for the bottles to decompose. (Yikes!)
So it goes without saying that stainless steel lasts longer! This holds true even when held up against BPA free reusable plastic. Reusable plastic wears out faster than you would think! Reusable plastic gets cracked easily, is prone to damage by heat or sun, and can be scratched easily. As soon as plastic shows any signs of wear it’s no longer safe to use. But steel is durable, and doesn’t wear out over time!

Smart Planet NDK Double Decker Food Container Review

Smart Planet NDK Double Decker Food Container Review

 Reviewed by Arielle Matlin, Editor, AllFreeCasseroleRecipes.com


The Smart Planet NDK Double Decker Food Container is perfect for bringing lunch to school or work. Dual compartments allow you to pack plenty without having to mix food together. I love using it to store and take soups, salads, and leftovers.

Taking lunch to work is something I have to think about every day. I like to bring a couple items to enjoy, but most of my food containers can only hold one item. Juggling a few containers on the way to work is not ideal. This container allows you to store two items all in an easy to carry container. The handle makes it even easier to take your food with you on the go.

The two compartments are kept separate with two lids. The entire container can hold 39 ounces, and each compartment can hold a large portion. I was able to bring a bowl of soup and a chicken dish to work without a problem. You can even heat your food in the very same compartments. 

Four different colors mean everyone in the family can have their own distinguishable container to call their own. These containers will make packing lunch for school or work stress-free.

Now that I have a Smart Planet NDK Vacuum Bottle, I can't go anywhere without it. This superior beverage bottle can keep cold drinks cold for 24 hours and hot drinks hot for 12 hours. The slender design makes it simple to take out on the go and fit in a purse.


I am known for never leaving the house without a bottle of water, and this has quickly become my new favorite bottle. I especially love the stainless steel material used to make it. My water stayed cold longer than 24 hours even when it sat in the heat for an hour.There is no other water bottle I have used that can do that. 


Because of the smaller design, you are able to take this bottle just about any where. It fits in most purses and all cup holders. I can keep it out on my desk without it being in the way. The vacuum seal ensures your beverage stays secure without worry.

This is one of the most functional water bottles, plus it looks sleek. They make it in four different colors: grey, white, purple, and black. The modern look will garner compliments and you will stay hydrated using the NDK Vacuum Bottle.

Bringing a healthy and filling lunch to work or school has never been as easy as it is with the Smart Planet Ultrathin SaladBook Storage Set. The set comes with everything you need to transport your favorite salad creations. It includes the container for keeping your salad, an insulated carrying case, silicone dressing container, and reusable spork.


I love eating salad for lunch, but it isn't the easiest meal to transport. You are filled with the dressing dilemma and whether to pre-dress the salad or bring a giant bottle from the store with you. This storage set is a great solution since it can hold your lunch, keep it cool, and even includes a small container to transport your favorite dressing. I love the small silicone dressing holder because it is a convenient size, easy to clean, and is even collapsible.


The actual container is just the right size for fitting your favorite lettuce and vegetables. It is also microwave safe so you can use it for transporting or storing other foods like side dishes and meat. After using it, you can put the container in your dishwasher for carefree cleaning.


The carrying case has a handle and is a far cry from the brown bag look. The thin size of the container makes it simple to store in your bag or backpack, too! This set allows you to easily take your salad and dressing to work or school.

I love this ultrathin SALADBOOK because the other day I packed my husband a very big salad and at first I was worried that the lid would not fit properly. To my dismay, the lid fit great and once the lid was removed the salad sprung back up perfectly.

The Smart Planet Portion Perfect 3 Week Solution Kit is both a food storage container system and a way to watch your caloric intake. The lunch bag comes with seven individual containers that are sized according to the portion of that food you should consume. The colorful containers help you pack a lunch that is well-rounded and nutritious. 

I am one of those people who can keep eating all day long if I am not careful. It is crazy how quickly a whole bag of chips can just disappear. The portion system used for this lunch bag, however, keeps you from losing control, since you can only pack healthy portions. 

There are 7 containers of varying size contained in the lunch bag. The smaller containers can hold condiments, toppings, carbs, and dairy, while the larger containers hold protein, fruits, and vegetables. The containers are all labeled so you can easily follow the 3 week solution.

The actual lunch bag is incredibly handy and has three extra pockets. It holds all of the containers, plus has room for a water bottle. The back has a large pocket along with an ID holder in case the bag is lost. In the back of the main compartment is an ice pack inside a zipped enclosure. This keeps the entire bag cold so your food stays ready to eat.


The Portion Perfect Kit is both a food storage system and a dieting tool. It is great for taking lunch and snacks to the office or school. Together with exercise, the kit will help you stay on a healthy track.
