Ordered this for my kindergartner to take for lunch. I LOVE the lunch bag. Reusable, washable, holds bento and a water bottle, and can either be carried by the handles or he can use the strap to put it over his shoulder. Genius. The Bento itself is a solid design and when the clips are engaged it holds the pieces together tightly, but still wouldn't think its leakproof as its a metal on metal seal. The Pros are that it is spacious. Can easily fit a sandwich in one layer and fruit and snacks in the others. Also clearly a quality build and easy to clean. Cons are that clips were a bit to stiff for my son to engage. Great for holding it together but not easy for a 5 year old. Also in future iterations I would love for it to come with some silicon divider inserts or something like that. I found that I was making lunches that had more than 3 elements and my son is not a fan of things mixing. So for our purposes not the ideal kindergarten lunch box but gave it 5 stars because it is a very high quality product that is exactly what it says it is and I think in another year or two it will get a lot of use. And if I could give 20 stars for customer service I would. The order got delayed by USPS and when I inquired on a Sunday (over a holiday weekend no less!) I got a response within hours. They were all set to expedite a new one to me when USPS located the original and it was delivered. The team was super nice and responsive. Couldn't ask for more.
Awesome bento box!
I’ve bought the lunchboxes for my kids and husband.Safe,great quality and fast customer service.My Mother in law even purchased one to take back home to Pakistan for her son.I recommend it to everyone.Great alternative to plastic lunchboxes.
Good size boxes with roomy bag!
Love this! "Just right" size boxes for my kids lunch and the bag is roomy enough to put his water thermos. Also if you are trying to limit your plastic consumption there's no plastic seal on boxes, (but theystill close nice and tight)
BKLYN BENTO Review!
Very well made lunchbox, came quickly and packaged nicely. Keeps food separated and organized and the bag is very convenient especially with the built in long handle.
Quality product together with great service
Exceeded my expectations and appreciated shipping notice from Bklyn Bento (marveling at Amazon's efficiency!)... fun experience ordering my two Bento boxes!
I LOVE the Bklyn Bento
I LOVE the Bklyn Bento! Such a cute eco friendly way to pack a lunch! Definitely excited to buy this for my loved ones!
I bought this as a birthday present for a coworker who likes sardines; the tins for the food reminded me of sardine cans. When I got it, both my husband and myself thought it was so cute (and environmentally friendly!) that I'll be ordering 2 more, one for each of us. It's well made, looks great and the individual tins make it perfect for keeping foods separate. The price is great, too. If I could give it 10 stars, I would! Can't wait to get mine!!
Perfect for school lunch
It looks exactly as expected. My daughter will use it for her lunch this year. Seem like a quality product. Time will tell. One complaint...the bottom container is too small for a full sandwich. I wish is was deeper. Other then that...nice.
It’s perfect, it’s stainless steel
I received my Bklyn Bento box as a very thoughtful and practical gift from my daughter. I had been curious and looking at different bento boxes. When I unwrapped it I was thrilled! It’s perfect, it’s stainless steel, it’s compact, it has plenty of room and three separate compartments, plus a well made and functional lunch bag! My zipper failed and I called and spoke with Marc. He was very helpful and accommodating. He stands behind his product and is very concerned with customer satisfaction. Within just days I received my new lunch bag! I’m thrilled! I am so happy to do business with Marc who has both a great product and tremendous customer service!
Im tottaly happy with this lunch box and a bag. Now my son can take his lunch everyday to school not in plastic box. Its a great size and i can put a lot of his favorite food in this three boxes. I use the smalest for the cookies, second one for the fruits and in the last one i put vegetables or sandwich. Bag is perfect size for the box and one bottle of water or juice.
You rock BKLYN BENTO
I really am pleased with my lunch box set it's so cool to stack my lunch in eco friendly stainless steel. I also really like the neoprene carrying case because it's stylish and easy to wash. Whoever designed the lunch box with the words peace & love from Brooklyn N.Y. Stamped on the box is brilliant I really enjoy reading this sentiment as I prepare my food plus the cool packaging is awesome also!
It's not plastic, doesn't leak, perfect size
I was looking for a Lunch Box, that wouldn't be plastic. Yet, I wanted it to be leak proof. When, I just have recieved it, I thought that it was too small. However, after using it for a month now, I must say that It is a perfect size and it is a perfect lunchbox! And I am happy that I bought a bag as well. I fill the lunch box in the morning, and at luch time I don't need to heat up my food. It saves me some time, when I am in a harry. Overal, its everything you need from a luchbox.
Easy open, large size!
I have tried many different lunch kits and bento boxes trying to find the perfect way for my kids to bring a healthy lunch to school. They don't eat sandwiches so it's been really hard finding main courses for them.What I love about Brooklyn Bento is that their bento box lunch set is larger than most. It is also significantly easier to pull the containers apart. This is a huge issue with other brands. Whether I pack cold food or hot steamy food I know they can safely open and separate the containers.I also liked that the lunch bag has so much extra space. Most bento kits can barely hold a drink on the side. I am able to fit the whole bento set, a thermos, a bottled water and a bag of chips without temperatures mixing or items getting squished.The only change I would make is to offer the bag in different colors. It's only available in blue. Otherwise we love it!
OH YEAH!!! So happy with my Bklyn Bento box + bag. Been researching bento boxes until my eyes were blurry. Went with this one and I'm so glad I did. If you are in the market for one of these, look no further.
Must have for space travelers of urban digitalism
Keeps my snacks safe and my veggies crisp!
Love these two products!
Great products. The bag is well made and the bento box is really sturdy. Got one for my college-aged daughter and liked it so much I ordered one for myself. Zipper was a little funky on mine and difficult to pull. I contacted the company hoping to exchange just the bag. They contacted me right away and offered to replace the faulty bag, and a few days later it arrived Outstanding customer service. I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase something from them again.
Love this bento box
Love this bento box, it is perfect for my son to take lunches to school. It is easy to clean and just the right size, with good use of compartment space.
She loved it and is really excited to start using it
I gave this to my mom as a gift for Christmas. She loved it and is really excited to start using it. Perfect size for her lunch
Sleek, professional, fun, well-made. My husband mentioned he wanted a new lunch system for his new job and this fit the need and want! Every person, brother, sister, mother, father, etc has commented on how much they like it and know my husband will like it. Highly recommend it!
Finally a bento box for sandwhiches and wraps!
I love this bento box; it gives me room for all the food I eat and more specifically is large enough for sandwiches and even wraps. There's extra room in the bag to stuff other things like cutlery or a canned beverage.I doubt it's going to keep hot things hot or cold things cold all by itself, and it's certainly not microwave safe, but neither of those things are a problem for my lunches.The only thing I'd complain about is the clip system, It doesn't seem to clip as securely as to prevent my paranoia. This is probably just a manufacturing QA issue, but can mostly be solved with a pair of pliers.
Good size, easy to transport
Good portions for me. Keeps Buddha bowl contents that I pack at night from becoming mush the next day because I can separate wet ingredients from things like lettuce that will wilt. Stylish. I've received compliments on it. Definitely not leak proof, as the listing says, so keep it upright during travel. The bag design helps with this.
Love the stainless steel
Love the stainless steel, love the size. The only complaint I would have is that the lock doesn't seem as tight/secure as it could be. But it's been used twice already without it coming apart so I guess so far so good!
Well thought out
Well made and goes into the dishwasher. I like the sleeve,too.
Durable and spacious enough for a teenage athlete!
I bought my first one for my teen son who is extremely rough on lunch bags. The first ba’s zipper arrived broken. When I notified the company they were very apologetic and gracious and immediately sent me a new bag! I was hooked by the customer service! I bought a 2nd for my younger son and I’m considering buying a 3rd. The neoprene bag is the best we’ve ever had. It’s stylish, cleans up in the wash like a charm, and it has 2 ways to carry it. The actual bento box holds enough food for a teenage boy in xcountry and after packed with the bento the bag still has room for utensils, a separate dressing container, and a piece of fruit! The only negative for our family is that the top container doesn’t hold much—not even utensils. Sometimes we can fit some loose nuts in there—but that’s about it. We’d love it just a tad bigger for utensils or it could just be eliminated and the space used for the other 2 compartments.
No doubt it will be enjoyed by fussy son who likes to eat healthy. Very attractive for a man. Will be enjoyed at mealtime on the job.
Perfect for my kindergartener to pack lunches! Its heavy but it's better than packing in plastics!
Very nice bento box and bag. Makes you feel good not having to throw away so much plastic waste during lunch.
Good quality and chic
Good quality and chic
Thank you Marc for the bag!
I really like this bento box for my kids. The top section is great for small grapes and nuts, it even fits a granola bar. There is plenty fo room for other healthy food in the bottom two sections. We happen to have a small kids konserve stainless container that lost its lid and it fits perfect in the bottom section for a small scoop of cereal or granola. great item!
Love this. Spent hours comparing lunch boxes
Love this. Spent hours comparing lunch boxes, very happy with my choice. The boxes themselves fit a HUGE amount of food and are so easy to clean. The bag that comes with is even better. Totally leak proof, and I can fit my boxes, ice packs, can of V8 , a 10 oz thermos, and some fruit very comfortbaly in the bag without it looking all bulky. Nothing I would change!
I like it. I like that I don't have to use the top tray and when I pull that out, there is room for a taller sandwich. But I also do like to use it for cheese and crackers. The bag is great and big enough for the box, a couple of small ice blocks and a piece of fruit. I'm glad I bought it.
I have one for me and one for my daughter ...
i have one for me and one for my daughter and use it every day. The top compartment is small but I fit blueberries, crackers and chocolate chips in there. After about 7 months of use, one of the clip pieces (that swings up and locks it closed) fell off. I emailed the manufacturers and they responded within five minutes and then I had the replacement piece in my hands within four days. If only everyone had this kind of customer service!
... exactly what I was looking for and I am glad it is spacious enough to carry enough food to ...
This lunch box is exactly what I was looking for and I am glad it is spacious enough to carry enough food to get me through those busy days. Unfortunately the lunch bag is very smelly. But I imagine that smell will fade in time and washing.
is using it for school and he is very happy with it
My son is using it for school and he is very happy with it. Thinking of getting one for myself. Not sure if they make it larger, if so I will purchase one for myself.
Great product! Environmentally friendly and money saving.
Great box! The box is great quality and comes with a great lunch bag. Love that it’s great for the environment and my wallet too. I save so much on plastic bags, disposable containers, etc. I bought some silicone muffin liners to help separate food in the boxes.
Got this for my Grand-daughter and she loves it. Got Grandpa lots of hugs. Works well for her lunch box at school.
Perfect in every way
Update**. The first bag I ordered developed a hole near the strap about 2 weeks after my daughter started using it. Marc from BKLYN BENTO contacted me regarding the issue with my bag. He wanted to ensure I had the best experience possible with the company. He offered to replace the bag that had a hole! I’m quite certain the first bag I recieved was a fluke as the new one is perfect. I know that can happen at times and it can be so frustrating but this was the most pleasant experience! I can honestly say their customer service sets the bar that ALL companies should follow! This is the type of company I will always come back to! Thank you, my 5 year old loves the bag and bento box. Her only complaint is that it’s not pink, lol!
Great bento box
The bento box is an awesome fit to my daily routine. So happy I purchased it
The bento box is great, the bag is not! ***Update 12/6/17: The new bag is so much better! Thanks Marc :)
The bento box itself works well and can hold a lot more than it looks! My child really seems to like it, and uses it for school lunches. The bento box alone gets 5 stars!The lunch bag is super cute, except the zipper is awful to open and close! It gets stuck or doesn't zip/unzip easily! The zipper has been problematic since day one. I should have called on it earlier, but procrastinated, as other things came up. They need to really fix the zipper, as other people have mentioned the same thing. The lunch bag gets 1star, as a result of the terrible zipper!Update 12/6/17: A package arrived today from Bklyn Bento. It was at that moment that I realized that Bklyn Bento must have read my review on Amazon, as I hadn't ordered anything additional from the company or reached out to them or Amazon personally about the zipper issue (see the original review). I opened the package, and much to my surprise was a really nice letter from Marc, and a new lunch bag with a functional zipper! Kudos to Marc for being so diligent to fix the zipper issue, and thank you for the new lunch bag without me having to contact Amazon or Bklyn Bento directly! My child was smiling when able to open and close it with ease! Marc, I figured you did something to back your company and I would do my part to let you know that I really appreciate the amazing customer service! With that said, thank you, and I have changed my review to give credit where credit is due. Bklyn Bento as a company gets 5/5 stars!
Its a great product. Stainless steel lunch box is the old ...
Its a great product. Stainless steel lunch box is the old school Indian way of packing your lunch off to work or school. Kudos to Bklyn Bento for bringing this to the US.
Love the rectangular!
He says it is perfect!
I bought it as a gift for my college-age son. He says it is perfect!
We love our Bento box and lunch bag
We love our Bento box and lunch bag! I like that they stack on one another so I can pack more items for my son's lunch and keep everything separated. There's plenty of space for a sandwich and then some. It's easy to clean, I can just throw it in the dishwasher. We also own the Planetbox, but my son thinks the Bklyn Bento is cooler and prefers using it. I even want my own bento box. I'm heading on a plane trip soon and think it would be great to pack snacks for the trip. In addition, Bklyn Bento has top notch customer service. I had a question/issue and received a resolution within a few hours.Update: Took the box on my flight and it held grapes and truffles. The lid and shallow top tier worked great as "plates."
Love everything about it!
Very attractive bento box
Absolutely love this cute, stackable bento box and lunch bag. I was able to get my salad, after lunch snacks, and tea bags in one compact container. When I'm done, I toss it in the dishwasher for easy cleanup. The lunch bag is also roomy enough to add extras I carry for meals. Will be recommending this as an option to a few coworkers and friends
Excellent construction and value with speedy fullfillment.Highly recomnended!
It's nice & compact
My daughter loves it! ❤️ It's nice & compact.
The kids all want this one!
I bought one of these and one of another brand to try them out before purchasing more for the whole family. This is the one the kids fought over (it was bigger and they love the stacking levels!). It definitely has enough space for a growing boy as well as a hubby, which was a must. We will be ordering more and have already recommended to a friend :).
I will be ordering more for my other 2 kids
I'm going to use this to pack my sons lunch for the upcoming school year and I love the fact that it has multiple compartments while remaining small and compact. Plus I was looking for something without the use of plastic. It is tough to find a durable lunch container that does not have any plastic pieces. After reading up on plastic and how unsure we are on how safe even the safest one is made me want to find an alternative for my children so this is perfect. I will be ordering more for my other 2 kids. The lunch bag itself is on the larger side (for a kid) so it will definately fit more than the lunch container.
Exactly what I've been looking for. Plenty of room for lunch and snacks!
So far really happy with the box and the bag
Grandson just loves it
This Bento was of very good quality thick steel and the bag a nice
This Bento was of very good quality thick steel and the bag a nice, heavy neoprene. I actually returned it because it was lager than what I needed for my kids. They barely eat anything for lunch, but this box would have fit enough food for an adult.
Amazing quality. My son loves this lunchbox.
Love the box
Absolutely love the bento box. Not a huge fan of the strong smell of the neoprene lunch bag though, even after washing.
I need to order 2 more for my other kiddos!!
Great for kids school lunch!
"WooHoo! Yeah, I'm digging it....5 stars :)". seriously, they're great, 1st week of school tested, tried and loved by two 4th graders! Ample space for a variety of foods, can even fit a sandwich on the top tray, compact enough to fit in their back packs, neoprene bag dries quickly. Example: an ice pack in the bottom of neoprene bag, fruit in bottom tray was cold while the warm empanada in a foil bag on top of bento was warm 4 hours later!LOVE THEM! Thanks
The Bento box has proved to be the box for me!
This was a great find.I was looking to get away from plastic bags/ Tupperware for a few reasons. First off, it's not the most environmental. Second, plastic leaching is downright scary and dangerous... and real. Three, taking tons of separate contains that are jumbling around, flipping over, and leaking is no fun.The Bento box has proved to be the box for me! Compact, but holds more than expected! One piece, not 6. Safe- no leaching of plastics, BPA's, BPA's, phenols, or dyes. Very strong and quality made. Easy to clean, too!This company also earned my respect. I appreciate that they didn't try and pull one over on us by claiming to be a "USA made/ assembled/ owned" company in order to get sales. This company is transparent: "PROUDLY MADE IN INDIA".Good job Bklyn, and good job India- wonderful lunchbox.
This lunch set is awesome. My son loves it! Thanks!

I bought one for myself and my husband liked it so much that I had to order a second ne for him.
Exactly what I was looking for.
Great product, great company
Better than we hoped for!
Excellent product. High quality and compact to carry
Excellent product. High quality and compact to carry. The bento box set is very nice and holds a nice sized portion for lunch. The carry bag is fantastic. Thanks for such a great product.
Great customer service...
After purchasing the bento box lunch bag combo, we had the zipper on the bag malfunction. Bklyn Bento replaced the bag and the representative (Marc) was friendly and easy to work with. Thank you for standing behind your product! Love both items, they are durable and well made.
Nice but a few improvements could be made.
The box is a nice product and my child likes it very much. I would like to leave some ideas that would improve it for my child's needs as I think this is a high quality company that seems to take pride in the products they produce. It would be nice if the top could be designed to fit over each section of the box if used alone. For example, if only the bottom is needed, I would like the top to fit on it instead of packing 2 additional empty boxes. My second suggestion is to make the deepest compartment slightly deeper. We buy individually packaged applesauce, Pringles, fruit cups, etc. for lunch and the box is about a 1/8" to 1/4' too shallow to hold these products that everyone buys for lunches. On the plus side the bag to carry the box is roomy enough to pack those items. This leads to not needing all of the boxes and you must take them all to take one. My third suggestion is if either the bottom or middle section could be divided if needed this would also be an improvement. That way if I send strawberries and cucumbers I don't still have to pack one in baggies. I hope this review is helpful to the company and to buyers. It is a high quality box and bag for the money.
quality and visual appeal is excellent. The tins don't fit food very well unless ...
quality and visual appeal is excellent. The tins don't fit food very well unless you are on a diet of crackers. The large tin will hold a wrap made with half a flatbread. I am not using mine but I still recommend the product for the quality and because the food that does not fit in the tins will fit on top the tins in the nice carrying bag. We were not able to fit a small plum in the tins but we could fit a baggie of baby carrots. Hope that gives you idea of practical size use. Four stars for quality but had to withhold a star because the tins will not hold the average persons lunch.
Sleek Style Plenty of Lunch Storage!
Loved this set! I had been looking for something to both store and tote my lunch to work in and this wonderfully fits the bill. I love how chic and sleek the bento is and that the bag is a subtle neutral blue. The bento is very well structured and sturdy and the separate compartments make it easy to store different lunch components. There is also ample room in the bag leftover once the box is in to stash a few small snacks or drink. Very pleased with this purchase and would totally consider ordering another in a new color or box configuration.
Great looking bento box and bag
This is my first Bento Box and I have to say that I am very impressed. The box itself is made of stainless steel, which makes it very easy to maintain and clean. There are three tiers to this box, with two large compartments at bottom and a narrow one up top. I can generally carry a small snack in the top, and my two main dishes in the other compartments. Those are big enough to hold sandwiches (which was one of my main concerns) and they still pack together extremely well. I can also pack leftovers (warm it up on a separate plate) and the size makes a great guideline for portion control.The unit itself is best used with cold items (with an ice pack in the bag) or food that doesn't need refrigeration. It does come with a neoprene bag that will fit the bento box, an ice pack, and a drink very comfortably. I can also add a small bag of chips or something of that nature and still have plenty of room.With this bag and box, it's easy for me to bring my lunch to work and portion it appropriately. I look forward to continued use of these boxes, and would recommend it to anyone looking for an all in one solution.
Awesome product and company
This product is awesome. I absolutely love the bento box and this company. They are very responsive to any questions and sincerely want to make their customers happy. I will order from them again and am happy to support such a wonderful group.
Absolutely love this Bento box set
WooHoo! Absolutely love this Bento box set. The gorgeous design has gotten me numerous compliments in the few days that I have had this set and the carrying bag is just an added bonus that makes taking lunch now super easy without worrying about anything sliding around in an ill fitted generic bag. Thumbs up! Definitely going to be in the Christmas present list for my family.
Awesome Bento Box!
I recently purchased two Bklyn Bento boxes for my toddler twin's to bring to preschool and have been very happy with the product. I researched several different stainless steel versions and wanted something that was compact but not too small since I have very big eaters. I like the two large compartments so I can easily fit a hefty sandwich in one while fruit and veggies are in the other. The extra small top section easily holds a napkin and a small spoon/fork if needed. I also appreciate the sleek look. As my husband says, "Giant sardine cans." The neoprene bag is handy that it's large enough to hold a water bottle and other snacks. I actually pack both of my twin's bento boxes in one bag when I send them to preschool. I can tell this product is well made and will stand the test of time.
Worth the wait!
This is a beautiful bento box that I can see myself using on a regular basis. I have multiple food allergies so eating out is very difficult for me. My previous bento was made of plastic and would only let me hold small amounts of food. I am always on the go at work so the portions that I can add into this bento will help me stay energized and focused! The bag is excellent and I'm glad it came paired with the bento so that I can carry it with ease. I recommend this product to those who want to pack their lunches. This is metal though so please don't expect that you will be able to put this in the microwave!
I love this Bento Box!!!
I just used my new Bklyn Bento box and I absolutely love it! It is very nice to look at, and is compact yet has a great amount of space inside. There are three layers with ample room. I love the three layers because I like to pack a variety of foods but keep certain ones separate. This box does this better than a previous stainless steel lunch box I have. The neoprene carrier is beautiful and very functional. I can carry it by the handle or pull the aqua strap up and put it over my shoulder. Another great feature is there is a little bit of extra room in the neoprene carrier so if I want to add something extra it's still all on one place and stays cool. I am going to buy these as gifts for my environmentally friendly friends and my kids. I have researched many bento styles and am glad that I chose to purchase this one!
The box was very well built
Cute but leaky
The lunch bag is nice and durable, the tins, however, leak. The lids don’t really fit well. Very nice looking but actually kind of too small
This bento box had some of the features I was looking for. No bpa, a good size, etc. I ordered two, one for each kid. One age 8 and the other age 13. When they arrived I was disappointed in how much weight they added to their backpacks! When you add a full stainless steel water bottle it’s just ridiculous. Also had a problem with the closures loosening and had to keep bending them with pliers to get them to hold bento together. The bottom level is perfect for sandwiches, but other levels were not as helpful and I found myself still having to use plastic or wax paper bags! Kinda What I was hoping to avoid by using washable bento.
High Quality but TINY!
This was extremely well-made, and had amazing quality. However, I returned it for two reasons. First, it was tiny. If this is extra large, as advertised, I cannot imagine the size of a regular Bento box. This may be okay for a side salad, but I cannot imagine this for a salad as a meal. Second, it is not leak proof. While I appreciate the all stainless feature, I could not afford to have this not leak.
A beautiful product. The size is perfect
A beautiful product. The size is perfect. The bag is ultra hip and well-designed for its purpose. They clearly have an eye for design and an ethic of environmentalism. Additionally, prior to purchasing I called the company and received exemplary service. 5 star recommendation without hesitation
Its just what I wanted,no plastic,hinges and shuts very tight,perfect
Love my new bento box!
I really love this product. I reviewed quite a few boxes and bags before I decided on this combo. Perfect for a sandwich and chips. Also was able to fit a water bottle in the bag.
Great product. Takes some getting use to but worth the price. I was sick of buying lunch boxes that mold after a few months. Also, this is much easier and lighter than packing all my glass containers in a lunch box.
Cant go wrong!
Quality product. Durable and stylish. Look no further. Neoprene bag is a nice addition.
Great lunchtime choice!
Gorgeous carrier and fantastic-sized bento box. Love it!
Compact. Durable. Just what I wanted. My family is moving away from using plastic anything, and thus is perfect for my teen to take her lunch to school.
Awesome Customer Service
Amazon only sent us half our our lunch box set we were missing the neoprene bag. I sent an amazon feedback review form and heard back from Marc at Brooklyn Bento within an hour. What a great experience. He rushed out a replacement bag for me and even followed up to make sure that I got it. Customer service at its finest. The lunch box set was a gift and the recipient loved it. Really great quality and what a fun gift to give. Honestly I would buy more items from Bklyn Bento just because of their customer service. Cheers to you Marc.
the best non-plastic bento box set out there
After a ridiculous amount of time spent trying to find a bento system that is a.) the right size for me b.) comes with a bag so that I don't have to figure out what fits and c.) non-plastic, I landed on Bklyn Bento. It's been several months now and the set is holding up really well. I'm really happy with the purchase! This is the best out there! Take my word for it and save yourself the wasted time on the internet :)
I will be buying a second! And maybe another as a Christmas gift.
I've gone through many different reusable lunch containers, and this is far by my favorite. I held off a couple months before posting a review and I am still a huge fan of this bento. It holds a ton of food, stays closed, has withstood use by two boys, and the bag is durable and well sized for the box, drink, ice pack, a full piece of fruit, and more if you wanted. I was concerned at first about not having dividers in the bottom sections, but using a silicone cupcake liner solves any food separation I've had (cheese/crackers, etc.). I plan on buying a second for days when I need to send two lunches to school.
