"Bento" Box

My mom is a tremendous fan of the Lock & Lock series of containers, as they're heavy-duty, microwavable and completely leakproof. I've been looking around for bento boxes, and reading up on different types of boxes to use. A site I've been reading plenty of, This Little Bento, uses small Lock & Lock containers in the place of traditional Japanese bentos, and so I was inspired to pick some up. Here's a link to the one I bought (sorry, no picture). I like it because it's got 4 removable cups that go into the main box. This will be handy if I've got any parts of the meal that need individual heating.

Next week: recipe testing!

I am seriously considering following you in the bento box quest. Lock and Lock is the perfect option!

Hey, thanks for the shout out! I'm so glad you're trying Lock & Lock, I know you'll love it! The square one with four cups is one of my favorites!
