Leftovers are good eating for a long road trip, but not if they’re cold when best consumed warm. Steambox resolves the issue—pasta to pizza, stir-fry to salmon. What makes it work? A connected lunchbox. It heats food for mobile consumption in 8-12 minutes.
A Dutch startup, the Steambox system creates steam with its built-in electric heating technology. A user adds water before commuting or before departing on a day trip. When it’s time to eat, turn it on and wait for the appropriate time. The box can heat up three times on a single charge.
Steambox is operated by a button on the front of the container or via a smartphone app; the latter option also will offer recipe-saving information and calorie tracking. The Steambox includes one heatbox, one inner container and a lid and one USB-C charging cable. Dimensions: 9 inches by 5 inches.
