Product Description

Zojirushi's Classic Bento Stainless Lunch Jar in Ultra Black provides an excellent way to safely and conveniently pack lunch where a microwave or a refrigerator may not be available. You will also appreciate the "greenness" of packing a lunch in our jars, instead of using a paper bag or disposable container.

Customer Reviews

Shoulder strap helps me to carry. spoon and chop sticks are attached to the jar.
Chiyuki Okada
The jar keeps food warm from early morning until lunch very well, especially if you heat the inside of the jar with hot water before you put the containers in.
J. More
We both take our lunches to work almost daily, it has saved us tons of money by not eating lunch out every day.

I have several lunch jars from Zojirushi -- Mr. Bento, Mini Bento, and now this updated version of the Classic Bento. All the containers are great in terms of reducing costs spent on eating out, minimizing the garbage of packing lunches in disposable containers, and even helping with portion control for weight loss.

So while they're all great, I gotta say that of the three Zojirushi lunch jars I have -- the Classic Bento is my favorite! While I love the four containers that come with Mr. Bento, there's always a lot of concern about staining them. They're a light grey color and are easily discolored by things like tomato soup or pasta sauce.

The Classic Bento's containers are a very dark grey (darker than they look in the Amazon product picture), meaning that stains just don't show. Brilliant! In addition, both the main entree container and the side dish container are larger than the Mr. Bento's equivalent containers. So even though you have one less container, it's pretty close to the same amount of food space.

The lunch jar itself is sleek and black. Although it comes with a great insulated bag, I really like that the jar has straps attached so that if you don't need the added insulation, you can just toss the jar itself over your shoulder.

The Bento is a great way to pack a lunch every day. The separate compartments are roomy. The bottom two have insulated tops and keep food warm (or cold) as needed. Pack the whole thing the night before, store in fridge, and the food stays cold all through the day. If you're trying to get away from sandwiches and processed foods, this is a great way to go! Leftovers, veggies, oatmeal, etc. work great--it's actually fun to try and be creative with the possibilities. There's room in the top of the bag for larger items that won't fit in the containers, such as fruit or an additional snack. Cleans up easily. Comes with a spork!

Edit as of 9/2011
I still have this item and still use it almost daily. The plastic bowls started to get worn and I was afraid of warming them in the micro given concerns about plastics etc since purchasing it. This is what I've discovered and wanted to share: Pyrex makes those little glass covered bowls--you may already own some. The 1 cup size with red lid, fits in the bottom of this bento. There is then space in the middle to put stuff that you pack separately, and then the 2 cup pyrex with the blue lid, fits perfectly at the top, the lid resting on the edges so it doesn't fall on the stuff in the middle. The Bento lid fits on top perfectly. I searched for glass bento appliances and didn't find any and then was delighted with this solution! I can micro in my glass containers yet they stay compact and insulated in the bento. Perfect. I still love it.

I have been using Nissan/Thermos brand cups, re-hydration bottles and the large capacity thermos bottles for several months and was looking for something from that brand that would carry food vs just liquids and soups. The vacuum insulation is for real. With boiling hot liquids the containers remain cool on the outside and with ice cold beverages there is no condensation on the outside of the containers.

We also own a Zojirushi 2.5L water boiler/dispenser and it is an excellent performer and this was brand I trust, so when I couldn't find a Nissan/Thermos food/lunch container that had separate food containers I started to research and check out the Bento line from Zojirushi.

I checked Amazon and searched for these Asian style bento lunch containers several times and kept coming back to the Zojirushi line of Mr. Bento, Ms. Bento, the old classic style Bento, but there were several problems with each one just from the stats.

The Ms. Bento was the most inexpensive, but both the wife and I have good appetites, so the smaller size of the containers as well as being a male and carrying a product designed for ladies just didn't feel right.

Some of the Zojirushi line of products did not contain an insulated bag, did not offer a spork and had only chopsticks, were light colored and could stain easily, had only 2 container or had other issues I knew would bother me. I almost bought a model without the spork and was just going to buy a spork and toss it into my package when I came across this updated classic bento.

This one is pretty much exactly what I wanted. Has both chopsticks and spork included with carry containers. It contains a thermal bag for the bento box and this is where you place the spork.

Overall, this jar is high quality. If is worth the price, for sure. My only complains regard the spoon and the latches. The spoon can be carried only in the bag but the chop sticks attach to the jar itself. They should have localized this thing and given us a place to store the spoon on the jar. The other problem I have is that the latches, used to hold the jar closed, feel loose and cheap. They have not failed me and they don't seem to be fading in reliability...but I won't be surprised if they turn out to be a problem. I've only had the jar for a couple weeks. Man, it looks great and it keeps my food pretty hot. I was afraid that it would be too small to hold a complete meal but it's actually a good size. I eat quite a bit too.
