As other reviewers have mentioned, only the bottom container is leak-proof, although I've put a minimal amount of sauce in the middle container and never had any issues with leaking. I pour hot water into the whole thermos for five minutes, heat up the food I packed the night before in the microwave, pour out the water, then pop my containers in and it stays hot until lunchtime. Keep in mind, I pack my lunch at 6:30am and generally don't get to eat it until 1:30pm. And my food is STILL nice and warm. Not bad at all.
A few caveats...only the two bottom containers are thermally insulated. The topmost container is not sealed, and will be room temperature if you don't pop it into the fridge like I do. It doesn't work nearly as well if you don't fill it with hot water before putting in the containers, or sticking it in the freezer for a few minutes if you're trying to keep food cold. I think a lot of people who complained that their food did not stay hot did not follow this step. All the containers are microwave-safe, but do NOT microwave the lids. I noticed a minimal amount of staining/smell retention with foods like curry (which is kind of understandable, these are plastic containers, not glass), but it didn't bother me. Whenever I changed what I packed the smell went away. If you damage any of the containers, replacements can be had for pretty reasonable price from Zojirushi, so you don't have to buy a whole new thermos set.
Customers have noted that the lid material of this jar is not made of the same vacuum material as the rest of the jar. I don't find this a problem, since the lid of the largest food container is a thermos-type lid, and that really is where the heat (or cold) needs to be preserved.
Most of the time, I do not take soup in the soup container. If you fill it with hot water, however, it will keep the main course (which is stacked on top of it) really hot.
I make my lunch at 7am, and it is still hot when I eat between noon and 1.
You could make an argument for buying the bento that has 4 containers rather than this one that has a 3 (the main-course container is much larger than the other models), but if you are going to pack lunches for adults that contain boned chicken, this really is better. I would not have wanted the smaller main course container.
If I lost this, I would not hesitate to repurchase the exact same model. One drawback may be the chopsticks instead of the spork--I just bring silverware in my bag.
Final note: people have mentioned that the main-course container is not water proof (the soup container is the only water-proof one). I have still packed soup in the main container, but it will leak slightly. I simply surround it with a paper towel and there is no problem. Works fine for those days when you want to take soup as the main course (the soup container is slightly smaller than a small soup can, so if you buy the big 16 oz soups from campbells, you can only put about half the can in the small soup container. I just use the big one along with a paper towel and it works).
Keeps everything really warm and holds lots of food. I don't always need all the compartments, but almost always use the center container. It's great for rice, soup, salad, etc.
Days that I am going to use it for cold foods, I can pack the night before and store the inside containers in the refrigerator. It doesn't keep foods really cold - they end up close to room temperature pretty quickly. I've learned that if I add some ice to the top or bottom containers, that works pretty well.
For hot foods I either cook that morning before packing or use the microwave to warm things up before packing. Hot food stays hot! Even as long as 4 or 5 hours.
I like the fact that it includes the chopsticks, although I don't always use them!
There is no limit to what can be packed in, including sandwiches if you round them off. The chopstick holder is very clever and makes eating a slower process, which helps with appetite control.
It should pay for itself in a month or less with money saved from buying lunches, and the health benefits are great.
Also a good idea for breakfast on the go -- hot cereal, fruit, juice in the soup bowl.
