People eat different types of food, but also different amounts of food. The bento box is half the width of the original Lunch Box design and this allows you to carry it upright in your bag, but still hold a good single portion.. The volume is perfect for pasta, rice or even sushi (and the silicon clip which holds the fork, can also be used to hold your own chopsticks). It may look compact, but it actually holds more than your standard airline meal.
The ‘glass like’ lid locks to the body for a water tight seal and has an ingenious sauce dipping area (great for sushi lovers!!).
The sauce pot is ideal for salad dressing (or ketchup), so you can dress your salad just before you eat it or dispense sauce on your meat.
The divider, which you can slide into any position along the bento boxes length, will keep the two different parts of your meal separate such as rice and meat until your ready to eat!
Also included is a fork which has a cutting edge down one side and this makes one handed eating easy (we call it a 'fife' because it is a fork + knife in one).
Dimensions: 19cm x 12cm x 5.5cm

Is the bento box microwave safe?
Yes, the bento box is microwave safe, but make sure you unfasten the lid, before microwaving. Two minutes maximum in one go and repeat if further heating is required.
Is the bento box dishwasher safe?
Yes, the bento box, slider divider and sauce pot are all dishwasher safe.
Is the lunch box BPA and BPS free?
Yes, all parts of the bento box are BPA and BPS free.
How do I open the bento box, if a vacuum forms?
On the top of the lid, there is a vacuum release valve. Simply press the valve to allow air into your lunch box and the vacuum will be released.
What happens if my bento box leaks?
Check the seal and make sure that it has not been compacted in any one area. Simply pull the silicon seal out and then reapply, making sure that it is not squashed too tightly at any point.
What happens if my sauce pot or inner dish leaks?
The sauce pot and inner dish are made from polypropylene. This is a great material, but it can deform easily and this makes it difficult to get non-round seals always perfect. But luckily this can be fixed with boiling water. Submerge your sauce pot or inner dish in boiling hot water for 5 minutes. Then remove, shake off excess water (so you can hold it without burning yourself) and tightly clamp down the lid with your hands, making sure that you are squeezing it closed tightly. Do this for five minutes until it has cooled. This should solve the problem as the pot will have formed to the correct shape.
How do I remove stains?
If microwaving foods such as tomato sauce, it can leave a stubborn residue stain. This can be removed by applying bicarbonate of soda with a damp cloth to these stubborn stains.
