WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE BENTO PLUS AND THE ORIGINAL BENTO THREE?
Great question! Though they both have 3 compartments, the Bento Plus is much bigger than its original counterpart. The Bento Plus comes with 2 removable dividers, the Bento Plus doesn’t come with any but they can be purchased separately.
The Bento Plus also has a removable silicone seal for easy washing, and three latches rather than one due to the large surface area of the lid.
HOW DO I USE MY LUNCH BOX?
Our Bento Plus lunch box is designed for those with a larger appetite and to allow for whole fruits or larger sandwiches to be packed with ease. It comes with 2 removable dividers* which allows you to turn the three compartments into five for more variety. When inserting the removable dividers please ensure that the arrow on the underside of the divider is pointing towards the inside of the lunch box.
You can also add Bento Dividers or Bento Cups to pack more variety in the lunch box.
‘Wet’ foods such as dips and yoghurt can be safely packed next to dry foods in our Bento lunch boxes by following their Bento Lunch Box Packing Instructions.
Bento Plus Lunch Boxes can be hand washed or washed on the top rack of the dishwasher after each use and then left to air dry. Refer to their Bento Lunch Box Care Instructions for more details.
HOW MUCH FOOD DOES THE LUNCH BOX HOLD?
Bento Plus lunch boxes hold 1300mL which is approx. 5 1/4 cups of food.
HOW DO I CLEAN MY LUNCH BOX?
All our products are made of durable hard wearing BPA-free, food safe materials. Place your Bento lunch boxes on the top shelf of your dishwasher on wash cycles <45 degrees celsius. Please refer to the Bento Lunch Box Care Instructions. Make sure you are drying your products in an open, upright (like a tent) position overnight. Please remove the seal on the lid of the Bento Plus when washing. Make sure both the lunch box and seal are completely dry before reinserting it.
Refer to their Bento Lunch Box Care Instructions for more details.
HOW DO I STORE MY LUNCH BOX?
We recommend that you always store your lunch box with the lid open when not in use to allow the seal to fully dry. Storing your lunch box with the lid closed can result in mould growth.
CAN I PRE-PACK THE LUNCH BOX THE NIGHT BEFORE?
Yes! Because each compartment is airtight, our Bento lunch boxes can be packed the night before and kept in the fridge ready to go in the morning.
IS THE LUNCH BOX LEAKPROOF?
Bento Plus Lunch boxes are leakproof for wet foods only, like dips and yoghurts, thicker sauces etc. They are NOT leak proof for liquids. For that reason, foods such as watermelon and citrus fruits may need a paper towel folded up at the bottom to soak up any additional liquids to prevent liquids from crossing over to other compartments of the lunch box. Refer to their Bento Lunch Box Packing Instructions for more information.
DO YOU HAVE ANY REPLACEMENT PARTS OR ADDITIONAL PARTS?
Yes - there are removable dividers to allow for more variety in the lunch box, and replacement seals and latches. You can find all of our replacement parts here.
HOW DO I PUT MY CHILD'S NAME ON MY LUNCH BOX?
Vinyl stickers are recommended to label your child’s lunch box - there are a wide variety of options available online.
