With preheating, my food stays HOT. Many times this year, I didn't get to eat lunch until 2:30 or 3pm. The food was definitely hot (still had steam coming out of it). The very top container, is not steaming hot, but is warm (which means it's perfect for fruit or veggies or snacks). The other 3 containers are hot.
I find this comparable to Mr. Bento from Zojirushi. And they both hold about the same amount of food. The difference?
Mr. Bento comes with chopsticks and a large lunch sak to carry the thermos lunch. The Nissan Stainless lunch tote comes with a spoon in the holder, and it has carrying straps, but no lunch sak to put in as a carrier. Sometimes having a lunch sak to carry it is nice.
I found one of those draw string backpack at Target for $3, and it works really nicely as a lunch bag. It fits the Nissan Thermos wide mouth lunch tote, an extra set of chopsticks, napkins, and another small ziploc container of fruit for dessert.
I do not recommend dairy products. You may get food poisoning by packing dairy items, and spoiled dairy smell is always hard to get out of plastic containers.
All in all, 5 stars! I'm so happy I have 2 sets of lunch jar totes!
To make sure I am comparing correctly, I preheat the 4 containers with hot water before I pack, just like Mr. Bento.
Also, the construction of this bento is much more sturdier than Mr. Bento, which has a lot of plastic. Like the other reviewer, yes it will dent if it gets banged around. As an adult, I don't have any problem with it.
Also the Mr. Bento I got from Amazon in Xmas 2006, was made in Thailand, not Japan. Apparently it is too expensive to get it from Japan now or something like that.
My girl friend's Mr. Bento was made in Japan, and it was much sturdier, and kept food hotter. I think the new Mr. Bentos have a plastic lid, which allows heat to escape.
Anyway, I just sold the Mr. Bento on ebay, and kept the lunch bag, which fits the Nissan Thermos really well.
I love this Nissan Thermos lunch tote. It really is worth the money.
1) An independent site compared both bento jars and found them to be comparable in performance, with the Thermos Nissan coming out just a little bit ahead in temperature retention. With the issue of time before he can stop to eat, every little bit of food safety helps.
2) The stainless steel jacket is resistant to the knocks and bumps it takes in a truck cab.
3) The Thermos Nissan is very compact, with a carrying strap rather than the canvas bag of the Mr. Bento. The truck cab is tiny and having many items in the cab poses a safety issue; the Thermos Nissan fits into the gym bag that he already takes with him, so he doesn't have to bring yet another bag.
4) Price. During the time it takes for a driver to sign in at his destination and talk to the product receiver, thieves can pop out the locks on his truck's doors and remove bags, jackets and anything else that might contain sellable items. The Thermos Nissan won't be as expensive to replace, should it be stolen.
How does he like it? The Thermos Nissan has been performing acceptably. Typically it's about six hours until he gets a chance to eat; the food within the Thermos Nissan, although not hot, is still on the hot side of warm, enough to be delicious.Read more ›

I recommend this to everyone.
It does require that you precondition the thermos to contain cold items with ice or hot items with hot water. That said, it works like a champ. Read morePublished on July 17, 2010 by Russell L. Collins
