What is a Bento Box?

A Bento Box is a reusable multi-compartment lunch box that originated in Japan. With their clever food dividers, Bento Boxes make it super convenient to pack wholesome, portioned lunches. 

Here are just a few reasons why you’ll love them:

Bento box benefits

They Keep Food Fresh

Our Bento Boxes feature a handy removable divider, designed to keep your food seperate. This means that you can pack a variety of food - for example, a pasta salad in one compartment and some fresh fruit in the other - without compromising on freshness. 

When closed, the Bento Boxes are airtight, keeping your food fresh, crisp and crunchy. No soggy sandwiches here!

They Prevent Leaks and Spills

Our Bento Boxes are complete with a leak-proof silicone rim, so you don’t need to worry about any unwanted spills in your handbag or kids backpack. Created with hard-wearing food grade stainless steel, these reusable lunch boxes are designed to last the distance.

They’re Easy to Clean

Cleaning multiple containers can be a hassle, especially if you have to do it all by hand. Our Bento Boxes are so easy to clean - simply pop them on the top rack of your dishwasher!  Food-grade stainless steel is also rust and stain resistant, so your Bento Box will last for years to come.

They’re Perfect for Fussy Eaters

Do your kids hate when different foods touch each other? Keep fussy eaters happy with our handy removable dividers that easily keep your snacks seperate.

They Promote a Balanced Diet

Multiple compartments can make us more thoughtful about packing a variety of foods, promoting a wholesome, balanced diet. From sandwiches and veggie sticks to fruit, yoghurt and crackers, our Bento Boxes encourage us to eat the rainbow!

They’re Good for the Planet

Because our Bento Boxes are airtight, you don’t need to wrap items individually in cling wrap or foil. Not only does this save you time, it also prevents more single-use plastics ending up in landfill. Our Bento Boxes are durable, long-lasting and designed to be used time and time again, making them a friendlier option for the environment.
