The lock & lock sets bento box review


Following in my series of Bento box reviews (previous posts can be read here, here and here ….. see above my collection of Lock & Lock Bento boxes.

Lock & Lock is a Korean brand and although they aren’t very cute,  I just love their Bento sets because of their practicality!

They are all: microwave proof; dishwasher proof; leak/air tight and can also be used to freeze food. I often precook rice and freeze portions of it in the smallest containers, ready to be defrosted in the morning 🙂

All sets come with a bento bag with a cute Konglish slogan to Enjoy your well-being life! (see also here), and either with chopsticks or cutlery. I buy mine via Amazon (haven’t seen them elsewhere) and depending on the size/style they will costs around £15-£25. There are different versions, but most will come with 2 or 3 containers, often one of them will have some sub-compartments.

I use these Lock & Lock bento sets very often, but the lunches I tend to pack in them can be a bit boring, ie just rice, protein and veggies. So I haven’t shown these very often on my blog, however, below are some examples where I DID use them (and the square boxes do give some scope for creativity 🙂

  1. I’ve not seen this collection of Lock-n-locks before. This is helpful. I have three lock-n-locks that I love for bento. One of them is a lunch-bot stainless box with a see-through lid. The company tells me that they did not mean for it to be a bento box, oh-well. My other two are classic lock-n-lock that do everything you say they do. Only one came with a bag… which I use for something else (a girl can only have just so much pink in her life)

    • I think as long as they work for you as a bento box, it doesn’t matter what the company says! Some of my Lock & Lock are part of an “Bento Set” but others are just sold as food storage containers. I just think they are very practical 🙂
