The 440ml capacity is really too small as a single comprehensive meal bento for anyone other than a very small child and so is really designed for use as an afternoon snack, side dish bento or as a pre-dinner appetizer/ tide-over bento.
Due to its cuteness that I have found excuses to use this as much as I can. I bring these (I have the Samurai version as well) on picnics and serve hummus and dips from the top lidded section, carrots and cheese from the lower section and use the hat part as a serving bowl for pita bread that I pack separately in a ziplock bag. It is also the perfect size for yogurt and granola with a few raspberries hidden underneath the hat. For winery picnics, I pack marinated olives and artichokes in the lidded section, cheese in the other and a small cracker or two underneath the hat (secured by the elastic).
Due to its size, highly recommended for compact high-energy snack foods. Not recommended for sandwiches, salads and other bulky foods.
Microwave safe without cover. Hand wash only.
I really prefer putting fruit/veggies in the top tier though since I like their fruit/veggies to be over half their lunch. Doing that their is not room for a sandwich but when I am not packing sandwiches I use the face tier for fruits/veggies and when I pack sandwiches I'll include a whole piece of fruit in their lunch bag.The hat piece can actually hold crackers, nuts, or other dry foods. You just teach the kids to turn the bento upside down when they take that piece off. I use silicone cupcake liners to separate foods in the box which allows for a more compactly packed lunch.
I was hesitant when I first got these because they seem small, but learning a few tricks for compact packing makes this bento completely useable for a preschool through elementary aged child. Once they get a little older you will have to add another type of container in order to provide the right amount of food. Still, I before I got these i tried a lot of different container options and they never worked well or they only lasted one year. This is well worth the price.
That being said while this IS on the small side, if you know what you're doing it is large enough for an adult sized bento lunch. As a couple of people have stated they stick small snacks under the hair/bowl which is a great idea, another trick I learned was using the bento upside down. Please note that this only works when using dry/appropriate foods because the geisha isn't perfectly sealed, but since the hair is a bowl it has a bottom and will stand on its own upside down. Being able to utilize the bowl leaves the larger compartments to store more food. I find this works best on meals with rice you can pack the bowl full (keeping space for the lid that goes on the face container)all the fruits/veggies can go in the face/head and the dress portion can be filled with your dessert!
I haven't use it a lot but when I do, everyone seems to like the design.
My food doesn't spill even if I have soup in the face part of the bento.
