I will just quickly review each box shown here and link back to a few lunches I made in them 🙂 (once again, clicking on the photo should link to the relevant blog post)
TumTum box (from TumTum): a very sturdy box, BPA free, dishwasher safe etc. I think this is an ideal box for children, because of it’s colours and design, flexibility to be used for different kinds of food and it’s sturdiness.
I used it to make the Hungry Caterpillar bento:
I also made this lunch in it:
Shikiri Bento (from Bento & Co): Very practical box. Dishwasher proof. Comes with chop sticks in the lid and has 2 removable compartments plus a divider. I love this box because it’s so flexible, sometimes I use it with the compartments, or sometimes with just one. It is also quite a large box.
BlumBlum pot: a bit of an unusual shape, it’s more suitable for soup lunches, or you could use it for yoghurt and fruit. The pots are micro and dishwasher safe, come with a spork (spoon/fork) and carrier strap, and fit into each other. I used this for bringing an Ochazuke lunch to work
Russian Doll Bento (Japan centre): this Matryoshka doll bento box is so cute! It came with inner lids, a cool pack and matching chop sticks. It’s partly microwave safe and it’s dishwasher safe. The only downside is, that it is quite small…
Nagabako (Bento & Co): again a very practical box. I love that it came with chop sticks and a chopstick rest (in the lid). It also has a bento band, and can be used as an one-tier or two-tier box. Partly microwave/dishwasher safe
And lastly, another flower lid bento box. I forgot the name of this one but bought it at Bento & Co.
It’s a small one tier box with an inner lid, and I used it to make one of my favourite bento: Little girl Bento:
I also made a ‘deconstructed gimbap” in it
Pfff, well, I hope you liked seeing some of my previous made lunches. More information on where to buy Bento boxes can be found on my page here, and do let me know if you have any questions 🙂
