I am loving this cute little bento box. It is compact, but large enough to hold a satisfying meal. I like to fill mine with half veggies/fruit, 1/4 protein, and 1/4 carbs. It comes with a removable pickle tray that is handy for separating items in the top tier, a lid for the top tier (which fits nicely into the bottom tier), and an elastic band to hold it all together (mine was red). The amount of calories you want in a meal can be adjusted by using more carbs or protein instead of veggies.

This bento box helps me make healthy, well proportioned, satisfying lunches that won't take up much space in my backpack (I used to use a collapsible tupperware, which was great once I was done with my meal, but took up a lot of space while full). I also love that I can separate the components of my meal! Using this bento box also brightens my day by allowing me to put together a visually pleasing meal - it doesn't have to be super cutesy like in the books, just organized. I spend a max of half an hour putting my bento together the night before, depending on how much of what I'm using is leftover and how much I have to prepare.

The little sauce containers you can buy on Amazon are a great addition to this bento box; they fit rather nicely inside. They are really easy to fill with soy sauce, despite the small openings they have. For thicker sauces like dressing, just put some dressing into a small dish, squeeze the bottle, and use the suction it creates to fill the bottle. Easy.

The only thing to watch out for with this bento is to make sure you put anything that might leak in the top tier, which has a lid. I put frozen raspberries and blueberries in the bottom tier with my salad once, and as they defrosted they leaked juice inside my backpack.

This Hakoya bento box is a great size for an adult woman (about 630 ml). It comes with a bonus pickle tray which is handy if you want to divide the contents in the upper compartment. Highly recommended for those who want to watch their portion intake. Pick this over the lower quality bento boxes available, and always hand wash! Matching chopsticks can be found at jbox.com.

Seems small at first, but it actually holds quite a bit. Both compartments microwave well (three minutes max so far). Be sure to remove the soft plastic lid from the upper tier before microwaving. Smidgets (great for dips and sauces) will fit in both the top and bottom compartments. Size forces you to think about meals. Usually keep cold items like fruit, potato salad or crudite in the upper tier and heat the lower tier. Have been bringing it to work daily for a month now, and it has not absorbed odors. Saves money on takeout and drive-thru. Fun to use and much more appealing than tupperware. Color is dark brown with a textured surface. Very pretty. Makes it easy to find your lunch in the office fridge.

I don't typically store food in anything plastic, but decided to try this out for lunches. The plastic is hard, and dense. While sturdy, I'm not sure how it would take a fall on a hard surface like concrete. At first I thought it might be good for kids, but perhaps it might not take a the abuse. The design & drcoration is fun.

The bento box is small, yet effecient. Plenty of room for a satisfying lunch or plenty of snacks. It would easily slip into a large bag for commuting. The bottom compartment is spacious and the second level has a sealable lid & loose sauce tray. All held together with an oversized band - which could be easy to lose. Makes lunch a bit more fun to take to work or on outings.

I got this for my wife so she can have something a bit more exciting to take to work. It fits just the right amount of food for her to enjoy without feeling too full or not having enough. The design if very sleek and sturdy and if you or someone you know is a fan of cherry blossoms then this is the box to choose. It may strike you as small at first but with proper portions and some tetris action you will have a stylish hardy meal on the go.

As a stay-at-home dad I have taken it upon myself to send my wife to work everyday with homemade lunches. This bento box has made that fun and easy. It makes portioning much easier and it is just fun to put her lunch in a little compact box. The artwork on the box is beautiful and looks good enough to have been hand painted. The top tray has a cover that fits tight however I would not trust it with thin liquids. The box does not fit snugly together, it has a little bit of play. I am not sure I would say this is not by design though, as I think too snug a fit would damage the box over time. The included fabric/elastic included with the box is more than adequate. I would recommend this bento box.

Edit: I wanted to add that there is space enough on top of the top compartment to add a teabag for the meal.

I received this Bento box as a gift that I picked out myself. I love that Bento boxes are compartmentalized and this one doesn't disappoint. The ability to choose between two large compartments or one large, one medium and two small compartments for your lunch is nice, too.

The strap to keep the Bento box closed it thick and just tight enough to keep the box securely closed, but loose enough that you don't have to fight it to get it around the box.

It doesn't seem like keeping liquids/soups/things that sit in juice in the bottom tier would be a good idea as it is definitely not entirely sealed when the second tier is placed on top. That's what the white plastic lid for the top tier is for, though. All of your juicy/wet items can go into the top tier without any worry about leakage.

I think another reviewer said that this box is dishwasher safe, but I'd probably just hand wash it. I wouldn't want the Sakura blossoms to fade or chip in the dishwasher.

Over all, I'm very satisfied with this box and I'm pretty excited to take it my dinner to work in it tonight.
