Zojirushi Mr. Bento Stainless Lunch Jar
Lunch on the Go
Whether in the office or on the go, you can take a healthier, tastier, more interesting lunch with you thanks to Zojirushi's Mr. Bento Stainless Lunch Jar. One of the most versatile lunch boxes you'll ever come across, the Mr. Bento lunch jar comes with four different containers that allow you to pack a multi-course lunch of both hot and cold items easily and securely. The jar itself is made of stainless steel, is vacuum-insulated and houses four plastic containers with lids. The large soup bowl comes with gasket-sealed lid to prevent messy spills and is specially insulated to keep soup hot. All pieces should be washed by hand with non-abrasive cleaning pads. Inner bowls are microwave-safe. A spork with its own protective cover attaches to the Mr. Bento lunch jar, and the jar itself has its own lid with lock and comes in a zippered carry bag with a strap for easy transport.
Mr. Bento Features
- Vacuum insulation keeps foods hot or cold for hours
- Durable stainless steel construction with excellent heat retention
- 4 microwaveable inner bowls
- Washable nonstick coated outer container
Great For Hot or Cold Foods
The Mr. Bento comes with two side bowls, one large 10.1-ounce and one small 6.8-ounce, that sit inside the lid. They are ideal for foods that should be kept room temperature, such as chips, nuts or snacks. The side bowls are not insulated.
The 15.2-ounce main bowl is designed to hold the main course. The outer container's vacuum insulation and the insulated lid of the main bowl help keep foods hot or cold for hours without reheating or refrigeration.
The 9-1/2-ounce soup bowl has a unique lid that minimizes leaks and is ideal for holding soups, dips, or fruit cocktail. It sits at the bottom of the outer container, where vacuum insulation keeps the foods hot or cold for hours.
How does it keep food hot or cold? With Zojirushi's renowned vacuum insulation technology, air between the two thin layers of stainless steel on the outer container is removed, creating a vacuum. Because there is no air, the temperature on the outside does not transfer into the container; keeping foods hot or cold for hours.

First the description
The lunchbox is a Thermos Jar with a non-insulated plastic top. There are four containers that fit into the jar in a specific order.
-The bottom container is a insulated bowl. It has a gasket sealed screw on top, insulated side walls and a small vent for pressure. The most insulative of the bunch it is designed for soup or other liquids
-The next container is the biggest. It has a slide and lock insulated top.
-The third container is notably smaller and has a Tupperware like pop top.
-The fourth container is smaller yet and has the same top.
You stack the containers in the jar and then clip the top on with little side clips. The whole thing then goes in a nice nylon carry bag that also has a pair of chopsticks in a narrow plastic box. There are little pockets on the side for extra sauce packets or condiments (or I-pod video's to watch while your eating lunch).
This unit is optimally designed for the Japanese style lunch. A soup, Rice, entrée and pickled/salted vegetables. Normally you'd put your soup in the bottom container, fill the middle container up with rice. Your entrée would go in the third and the veggies in the fourth. Since the soup and the rice container both have insulated tops they stay warm. The other containers are not insulated and neither is the top. This allows some heat coming off the bottom two containers to escape so that your veggies are at room temperature. Understanding this is important. Its not supposed to keep the entire meal at the same temperature. Its supposed to keep one part hot and the other part at room temperature.Read more ›
The construction of all the components are very sturdy, and the container is very well insulated. The bag has an outside pocket that you can use to store a napkin (or teabags, as I do) and comes with a detachable shoulder strap and an attached short carrying strap. Inside the bag, along with the thermal container, is a utensil box that holds a pair of chopsticks. Everything is quality construction - even the chopsticks, which have a textured surface on the business end of them making it easier for you to pick up food with them. Whoever designed this package gave it a lot of thought.
The bottom two containers are intended for holding rice and soup; the rice container has an insulated cap, allowing you can to store hot & cold items in the same container.
Overall, I'm very satisfied with this purchase and would recommend one of these to anyone who needs a lunchbox.
My only complaints (which are minor, but included here for the sake of completeness): the instructions are in Japanese (as if you needed them), and no western utensils (you can pack your own fork). But outside of that, it's a perfect product.
*Expensive? It paid for itself in 2 weeks - after I bought it, I stopped eating fast food for lunch.
** It's been 2 years since I bought - yet to show any sort of appreciable wear and tear. I love this thing!
*** It's now been about 5 years. Still using it, still in darn good shape.
*** It's now been about 10 years. Still using it. No appreciable wear.
UPDATE: The company just called and threatened legal action based on the above review...!? Way to go, customer service! I am leaving 2 stars for the product, but the company behind it gets zero stars. Purchase at your own peril, and in the knowledge that you are paying mor ethan $40 for something that will likely break, and has no warranty for anything but the large outer casing.
Edit: I've now had this Mr. Bento for 10 years, and my above review holds true in every aspect. I still use this, and it still doesn't leak, stain, or stink, and cleans quite easily.
