What bag should I go with for carry Hot and Cold meals at the same time with etc?

  • 0

I'm trying to be more independent of restaurants and crappy school food and I'm the type of person that likes eating through out the entire day and not just eat at specific times, my current insulated bag is good enough because I can only bring in hot or cold food at a time or I'd have to buy seperate bags for both of them, heck my food didn't stay hot or warm in it even with a heat pack and all the food being fresh out of the oven.
I decided to look through Amazon for dual compartment or more insulated bags I ran across these two which have some interesting features and high rated reviews.

I'm stuck between the two I'm leaning towards the pranzo since it's cheaper, comes with filled salt/pepper shakers, flateware a only appears to be 3 inches smaller in volume (I used the measurements in the descriptions of the products but I don't think I can trust myself on these calculations

)

my primary worries is that will the pranzo fit the stuff I want/need, since its getting warm I wanted to get a pitcher of at least 50 ounces or smaller pitches that can add up to it, and carry around milkshakes or sodas while still having enough space for comparably sized one or two more items in the cold compartment excluding ice packs. Like for example I have a double walled cup 20 ounces domed cup thats about 7 inches tall, and I have a 2.5 cup square food container I like to put jello in sometimes.

If you guys know any other bags or pitchers/jugs and other stuff that's appropriate for this bag let me know please

For example I was looking at this as a proper pitcher/jug for it
