Thank-you for visiting our
site and I hope you enjoy this story about the ThermaPod
came to be. The
ThermaPod was created by my wife Sandra, who like many
smart, beautiful and
mothers looked at making lunches as a frustrating,
lengthy task only because of the "way" lunches
had to be made. It also may have been that having 4 boys
under the age of 10 (or as I like to call them,
"The Pack of Wolves"), added to the problem.
Sandra assured me that the real reason for her
frustration stemmed from lunch preparation itself and
not the boys or "wolves". The constant "lost
lids", "match the lids to the
container" or the "where's the rubber
band to keep the lid on" syndrome had to go!
night in 2006 Sandra had enough and simply said, "Why
can't you and your company design, engineer and build a
lunch tray system that is easy to use, has no lost lids,
is always easy to clean and actually looks like
something you want to take to school or work?"
Sandra to explain her thoughts and ideas and as you can
imagine the list of 'wants' became a little more than
what I was expecting, but like all good spouses said "Yes,
no problem!" to each task.
lunchbox had to be:
safe - reduces waste
from plastic bags, is environment-friendly, BPA-free and
– dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe, easy
to clean and stackable
– great look, feel and design – something kids would
money saving – affordable and great value for money
convenient to use – no more lost or ill-fitting lids
and keeps food warm or cool
a quality product – no warping and twisting, special
storage for a spoon and fork!
an inspiration for healthy lunch choices!
such a ‘simple’ task at hand, I walked into work the
next day and asked my two partners to get on board and
make this happen. To my surprise, they said, "Wow,
this is a great idea, let’s do it!" Well, to
make a long story short, after years of engineering,
development, testing and countless prototypes, it's
finally here …
