#We have kindly been gifted these products from SMASH Blue in return for this review, however, all thoughts are our own.
Summer is here and many of us are back to enjoying cooler lunches on the go such as salads and pasta dishes. Do you however find them leaking in your bag on route to work? The worst one for me is my fruit in the morning, I always add a bit of yoghurt with it however by the time I get to work it has usually leaked in the bag.
SMASH BLUE however have the perfect solution to this with their new range that is out and I have been lucky enough to be gifted some products to try out over the last few weeks. This new range is exclusive to Tesco and includes the following.
- Leak Proof Travel Cup
- Reusable Glass Coffee Cup
- 3-piece Insulated bottle
- Push Button Glass Bottle
- Stainless Steel Lunch Boxes which come in 2 sizes
Founded in Australia in the late ’90s, SMASH is fast becoming a household name. They are not looking just to make lives easier with their designs and functionality but they are also looking to help save the planet with products that are affordable. They are trying to reduce the number of paper coffee cups thrown away each year, which is estimated to be a staggering 2.5 billion!
I love this new range they have just launched as they have moved more away from plastic and moved towards food-grade stainless steel and glass. We have previously worked with SMASH at Christmas and their kids range is cute but this is aimed at adults.
On my desk, at work, I keep the push-button glass bottle and use it every day. I won’t lie, when it is full it can be heavy, however, it is just a nice all-round drinking bottle. It keeps the water cool and it’s easy to clean and refill, ready to go again.
We also received the two stainless steel lunch boxes and I think these may be my favourite products! Firstly, these can be used to keep food cool by popping them in the fridge or can be used to heat food up for lunch. They are completely microwave-safe and perfect for leftovers the next day. The rolled edge design from SMASH allows you to do this and reduced food waste. My favourite feature on these is the locking system for the lids. How many times have you used a lunchbox or reusable pot and the lids don’t shut properly or the clips don’t work?! These clip perfectly and keep the food fresh inside.
I have used my pot for both lunches and breakfast and found that even sliced apples stay fresh in there until I am ready to use them. I have some more on order from Tesco with our food shop this week as I look to use them for all our lunches!
Both the travel cup and coffee cup are top each dishwasher safe and all of their products are BPA-free, food-safe and come with a 12-month manufacturing guarantee. It is great to see a brand not only bring some amazing design features to products but also look to the future and sustainability. All whilst being affordable for everyone!
