Introducing Ember: the world's smartest lunchbox
FREE USA SHIPPING!
Lunch time at work is a great opportunity to give yourself a break and treat your body to a hot, healthy meal. But what do most of us do?
- Suffer through a flavorless, microwaved meal
- Spend precious mental energy and time deciding on an expensive place to eat
- Eat a lukewarm, dry sandwich
We were tired of those options!
The LUNCHx Ember gives you a better lunch experience
- Gently heats your meal to the perfect temperature
- Prepares your meal on your schedule (using the app)
- Keeps your hot items hot and cool items cool
- 100% portable for any occasion
The Ember is dishwasher safe, completely sealed and charges using a wireless base. It’s the most advanced lunchbox ever made.
How It Works
The ember uses a gentle resistive heating element that brings up your food to the perfect temperature on the schedule you set. Use the Android/iOS app to control ember's timing and heat profile. Your food will come out perfectly heated to your specifications every time.
Exciting Temperature Calibration Test
- Bluetooth enabled connectivity
- Wireless charging
- Completely sealed and impervious to just about everything
- Dishwasher safe
- Large 3200 mAh battery, enough power to heat up the heartiest of meals
- Intuitive app for quick schedule and heating control
There are no wires or clutter in Ember's design. It's a completely minimalist take on a bento box design. It is constructed with BPA-free hard silicone with woven fiber insulation to keep important elements cool. These materials make it dishwasher safe and amazingly easy to maintain. Your food will stay at a cooled temperature until ready to heat and eat. The smaller compartments not heated will remain at their cool temperatures even during heating.

The retail price of the Ember is expected to be $199, so you are getting a significant discount by supporting our Kickstarter. We will not be selling any Embers in retail until our Kickstarter orders completely ship.
With a bluetooth mobile interface, wireless power, the included app, and reliable insulating and silicone material, the price of Ember has been carefully considered to ensure we can fulfill our orders. Despite being more costly than standard lunchboxes, meals heated by Ember are a game-changing experience. The naturally heated food in Ember has the original fresh flavor, which is a huge improvement on the uneven styrofoam blandness of microwaved food.
Feel great again about bringing your meals to work with Ember, you'll be much less likely to spend time and money eating out - saving you lots of cash over time.
- Average cost of eating out for lunch - $12
- Average cost of eating prepared lunch - $4
By motivating you to eat your own meals, Ember pays you back in less than 3 weeks! Using Ember 5x a week will save you $3,120 a year, which just happens to be the cost of a nice Hawaiian getaway :)

Risks and challenges
We have the backing of a multi-national fulfillment and advisory firm behind us. This is Rudy's fifth major Kickstarter and Gareth's second. Each of our previous Kickstarters have been 100% fulfilled, though we have always run into delays (which have been unbelievably educational). Even with all of this experience behind us, this is a more complex device pushing the envelope of IoT tech, so there is always the potential for delays, especially during the finishing phase of design (including certifications, etc).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
