Very happy I went with this set,
This review is from: Zojirushi Mini Stainless Thermal Lunch Box, Metallic Blue (Kitchen)
I was hesitant to buy this set based on some of the reviews, but I eventually settled on it because I liked the look of it better than the Ms.Bentou and the price was better than the larger sets. I also lack the attention span for preparing more than one or two dishes for a lunch, so the smaller number of containers appealed to me.
Even having read the descritions, I was very surprised at the size of the packed bentou. It /is/ very small. More surprisingly though, it really is just the right amount of food for a meal and desert or meal and a small snack.
I have a physically demanding job with long shifts and the portions packed in this bentou have never failed to get me through my day.
The only thing I could wish for would be a drink container to go with it. ^_^
Also, the packed bentou (full or broken down, it packs smaller when empty) is light, easy to carry and /adorable/. It would be especially efficient packed into a backpack or totebag if you have other things to carry with you to work or school. I wish I'd had one in college.
