Review of the complEAT foodskin food storage box by Unikia.

Hi Guys, in this review I am taking a look at some brilliant food storage solutions, which can be used in the great outdoors, or equally in the work place.

 Designed and tested in Norway by the COMPLEAT food company, they Incorporate durability,  practicality,  and less wasteful means to store your food.



First off lets take a look at the Compleat Foodskin. It's a way to store your sandwiches in a safe, contaminate free, and very space saving flat lunchbox!  Yes you read that right!....FLAT lunchbox. It eliminates the need for foil or clingfilm, which is used to wrap most fresh foods up these days and is an obvious wasteful resource.

It's constructed using safe materials which are BPA -free and the Foodskin is dishwasher safe and can be used in the microwave without the silicone lid on it.
The silicone lid moulds around your sandwiches or wraps and locks down into place using 3 clips. It also has a rubber seal inside which keeps the food fresh and air tight. Although it does slightly squash your food to a certain degree,  you can manipulate the silicone to give it more stretch to allow a less tight fit for your snap!

On a more positive note, this is a very practical piece of equipment to have, especially on a mountain hike or camping trip where space and storage is of the essence. Being able to store food cleanly and efficiently is everything to the avid outdoor enthusiast and this food skin does a great job of keeping things minimal.


The design I think personally is brilliant...not over the top and fancy but not too boring either...just clean and simple with a splash of colour!

Prices come in at €24.95 from www.unikia.com and if you buy 3 or more products you get free shipping.

Overall, if your looking for a snack storage item that you can use over and over again,  without ever having to use clingfilm or worrying about squashed sandwich mess in your rucksack then this is a great investment.

This is something I will be using at work and out on the mountains for a long time to come.
