A traditional bento is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal, usually in a box-shaped container that’s divided into compartments. But Ms. Bento takes things vertical. The Lunch Jars are stainless steel containers into which covered bowls fit, stacked on top of each other. The sturdy, insulated thermos keeps hot things hot (like soup, chili, or pasta) and cold things cold (salad greens, carrots, or cucumber slices). The blue 2 tier set also comes with chop sticks and the 3 tier set has a forked spoon.
The Ms. Bento Stainless Lunch Jar is made by the Japanese firm Zojirushi, which is known for its high quality kitchenware. As the school year continues, it’s a great way to send off the kids with nutritious lunches. But it’s not just for kids. A three-course meal in an easy, sleek container is great for taking to work, on the ski slopes, or on a picnic. Why not treat yourself or your child to a homemade meal on-the-go? We like to think of Ms. Bento as packing love in a lunchbox.
