Teachers, nurses and contractors love this electric lunch box — on sale for $29

Now that people are back at the office, we have renewed that age-old problem of figuring out what to eat for lunch. As adults, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich doesn't quite cut it. And a salad when it's 35℉? Fuhgeddaboudit. We need hot food on a cold day, and Amazon has just the solution: the Xinzokyc Electric Lunch Box — and right now, you can get it on sale!

This portable, leak-proof carrier uses 60W of power to heat food when you need to eat on the go.
$29 at Amazon

This gadget is basically a lunch box but it's built like a slow cooker. There's an inner aluminum food container with a panel underneath that heats up using 60W of power to warm your food gradually without overcooking or burning it.

The lunch box is light and compact, so it's a snap to transport. Even easier: It comes with two detachable power cords: one for a wall outlet and the other for your car for on-the-go meal time.

The inner container where your food is heated is leakproof so you don't have to worry about spills in the car. It comes with utensils and a carrying case for an all-in-one lunch kit. Amazon shoppers can't get enough of it — over 2,000 shoppers give it a perfect five-star rating.

"Best purchase I've made on Amazon!" wrote a five-star fan. "As a travel nurse I mostly work out of my car. I get tired of eating out or packing a cold lunch. Now I can have a hot home cooked meal when I'm working. Love it!!"

"My husband is a contractor so never has access to a microwave around lunchtime," wrote a doting wife. "He used to heat his lunch in the winter on the dash using the heater in his van. This electric lunchbox plugs into his cigarette lighter in the van and boom, 20 min later he has hot lunch. He loves this thing — says it works great for rice, veggies… pretty much anything."

Another happy shopper said her husband is glad she found it. "He is self employed so he packs his lunch everyday, and it’s always the same old sandwich he gets so tired of, it’s just so boring," she wrote. "When I showed it to him his eyes lit up like Christmas! He was so excited to be able to heat up leftovers sitting in his truck lol. He does not like spending money, at all, but had me order two so he could give one to his employee too!"

"I LOVE this lunch box," reported a rave reviewer. "It makes packing my lunch so much easier and I actually want to bring lunch now. As a teacher whose classroom is in the basement, this makes my 30-minute lunch breaks so much smoother. I have used this lunch box every day for four weeks now."

This electric lunch box comes with a fork and spoon, a carrying case and two power cords — one for indoors and one that plugs into your car.
