The Grommet -- Product & Company Review

 Recently I became an affiliate with The Grommet. Now I will admit I had not heard of them when I was first approached, but after checking them out, I was excited to be able to promote them a bit. The Grommet: Discover What's Next is a company that launch undiscovered products. The products have a purpose and are invented by people with a story. To check out the company, they provided me with a $10 coupon code to order my choice of product. After looking several times I finally decided to get the Frego: Food Storage Container - 4 Cup. I ordered the one in blue. I decided on the four cup because I figured it could hold smaller or larger lunches.




Now my mother is always talking about the dangers of storing foods in plastic and especially microwaving it in plastic. The truth is she hates using the microwave. She is usually up on the latest news about food dangers and issues. She got rid of all of her plastic containers and got all glass ones. This did not seem like it would work for me. After all we bring lunches to work and school and often use plastic for convenience. My parents are retired so they do not usually have transport the food. I like that the Frego is glass and silicone.

The container inside is glass and it is in a silicone case.

The glass is removable from the silicone. The silicone acts to help prevent breaks. It also prevents burns from the oven or microwave. I have not tried mine in the oven or the freezer, but have used it to bring lunch to work and heat it in the microwave.


The lid does not completely seal the container. It is not 100% leak proof, but does work very well. This is my new go to for lunch containers. (It certainly beats Hazel's Frozen Thermos containers that I often use.)

I am now wanting the Frego: Food Storage Container - 2 Cup container and will be sharing this new find with my mother. I know she will love it!!

Now besides the product I need to tell you about the customer service. My Frego came in under a week. I was surprised at how quickly it came. The package was small and it had a fun little note saying "Thank you for shopping differently." This company helps the small guys become bigger guys and get their products out there. The items they sell are pretty amazing. I had a very hard time choosing just one.  I hope you will check them out and would appreciate if you shop through my links. Shop The Grommet for unique gifts!
