What is a Swivlit?
- A Swivlit is a multifunctional cooking and eating pod which can keep your food either hot or cold for several hours so you can enjoy it on the go.
You can cook in it, take it with you and eat from it wherever you are!
Made from borisilicate glass, polypropylene, PU foam and silicon, a swivlit is microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher proof!
It’s sustainable and reusable so will help to reduce your single-use plastic footprint.
How do I use a Swivlit?
- For best results for hot food, remove the lid, heat your food, stirring occasionally, in the microwave until piping hot (we recommend at least 95°C), stir, then immediately replace the lid securely.
Your food should keep hot for 4-5 hours.
When you are ready to eat, simply release the pressure using the central button, remove the lid, stir and enjoy.
If you are not using the microwave to heat your food, for best results pre heat your Swivlit first using boiling water. Note that your food will stay hot for around 3-4 hours if not using a microwave.
For best results for cold food, prechill your Swivlit either in the fridge or by using cold water
Put your cold food in the Swivlit and enjoy up to 8 hours later straight from it!
You can also use your Swivlit for cooking food from raw – find out more in our Recipe section.
Ensure the lid does not go in the microwave.
Be careful whilst handling hot food.
Note that there are two parts to the lid and these are designed to click apart and back together. This is for ease of cleaning and we reccomend to handwash the outer part of the lid and dishwash the inner (white) part of the lid, if required.
The bottom section of the Swivlit does not come apart - this is part of the aesthetic deisgn.
What is a Swivlit made out of?
The inner liner is made out of high borosilicate glass. The outer shell is made out of Polyproylene plastic (BPA-free). There is an insulating layer in between the outer shell and the glass lining. The seals are made from food-grade silicon.

How do I clean my Swivlit?
Your Swivlit can be handwashed or put in the dishwasher! We recommend not to wash at a high temperature. We also recommend not to dishwash the outer (coloured) part of the lid.
How do I maximise the time my Swivlit keeps food hot?
For best results use the microwave. Ensure that the food is cooked until it is piping hot (too hot to eat, over 95 degrees C), stirring throughout cooking time, and that the lid is put on straight away after cooking. Also ensure the lid is closed as tight as possible.
Top tips for using your Swivlit
1, Heat your food in the Swivlit in the microwave (WITHOUT THE LID) for best results (the time the food will keep hot will be less than 4-5 hours if not using a microwave).
What is the button on my Swivlit lid for?
This button is to release any pressure/vaccum from inside the Swivlit so it is easier to open. When you put hot or cold food inside and leave it for a few hours, when the temperature changes the pressure will also change which makes the lid tight to open. When you press the button this will be released and the lid will be removed more easily.
