Use and Care Instructions
To use the Vacuum Insulated Container with OmieBox:
- To begin, tighten the securing insert around the vacuum insulated container by turning it in a clockwise direction.
- For best results, fill the vacuum insulated container with hot or cold water before use. Let stand with the lid off for 5-10 minutes and then empty. We recommend you do this step before putting the vacuum insulated container and its securing insert inside OmieBox, as it will be easier to pour out the hot/cold water. Use extreme caution when using hot water.
- Make sure the rounded corner of the securing insert is aligned with the large rounded corner of the OmieBox (see Fig. 1).
- Push the assembly all the way down so the bottom of the vacuum insulated container touches the bottom of the OmieBox.
- Do not fill above the inner ridge of the vacuum insulated container; overfilling can cause leakage.
- To seal, place the vacuum insulated container lid on top of the vacuum insulated container / securing insert assembly. Turn the lid in a clockwise direction to tighten. Do not over tighten.
