Electric Lunch Box: Steamed Crab Legs

We used our Magic Itaki Pro (affiliate) portable electric lunch box steamer to make this happen!

I’ve been seeing ads for this portable, electric lunch box all over social media… so you don’t even know how excited I was to finally receive ours to try out!

Honestly… how perfect are these for college students! Granted, Joshua commutes to school and most of his classes are still remote, but, this baby is small & light enough to throw into his backpack when he has labs on campus.

He just plugs it in while he’s in class… and it’s ready by the time he’s done! Freshly cooked meal for my son, y’all!

This was our first time using it… so I packed crab legs and garlic butter for him. Can we say YUM?!!!

Can’t wait to try more recipes!

Ok… ready?
