First off, choosing to use a 100% Stainless Steel Food Container (whether it's our brand or someone else's) over disposable plastic is a good thing... for you, me and our sweet %@* planet.

As for our Bklyn Bento box, it's 20% LARGER than most bento boxes.

Does that mean it's HUGE???

No, not really. If you eat like a bear, even this large size might be too small. That said, most will find it's a perfect size to pack a nice size lunch.

The following are the capacity dimensions for the Bklyn Bento box:

Bottom Compartment holds: 2-1/8 Cups

Middle Compartment holds: 2 Cups

Top Compartment holds: 1-1/8 Cups

It's also worth noting that just like you; I too love a good hot bowl of soup every now and then. Unfortunately, this Bento Box is not built to hold liquids (sorry about that).

That's because we chose not to use any plastic or rubber sealant, and therefor it's Not Leak Proof (no issues with moist foods like cottage cheese, fruit, salad dressing, etc.). The trade-off to not being Liquid Leak Proof is our Bklyn Bento box is 100% FREE of all Plastic, PVC and PBAs.

We feel that's a good trade off. You'll have to stick with your thermos when craving a soup lunch.

Thanks for taking the time to understand our product. We love it. Hope you do too.
