Wishlist Wednesday: Bento Lunch Box
Ms. Bento Lunch Jar by Zojirushi
I've been pondering the bento box for quite some time now. These Japanese-style lunchboxes are becoming quite the trend in the US. They are cleverly designed to compartmentalize your lunch, and some are equipped to keep it hot or cold for hours. They are available in a lot of different styles, many of them featuring Hello Kitty or characters from Studio Ghibli films. (!) While these are adorable for kiddos, the Ms. Bento featured above (along with the larger Mr. Bento) is more office-appropriate.
My office has the teensiest tiniest fridge in creation. It is always crammed full of junk. This bento box is designed to insulate food, meaning that I could leave this at my desk and not worry about my lunch until it's time to heat it up in the microwave. Plus, it comes with a spork. I'm sold!
What do you think of bento boxes? Do you have something else you use to transport your lunch or keep it at the right temperature?
