WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE BENTO STAINLESS MAXI AND THE OTHER BENTO BOXES?
Great question! The Stainless Maxi is the biggest lunch box in our range and is our only lunch box made from (304) Stainless Steel. The moulded lid of the Stainless Maxi gives you much more room than our other Bento Boxes which have a flat lid.
HOW DO I USE MY LUNCH BOX?
The Bento Stainless Maxi is a durable, eco-conscious lunch box option for adults, older kids and kids with a larger appetite.
You’ll need to slightly overpack each compartment in the Bento Stainless Maxi as there is some extra depth built into the lid - which means more room for more food!
You can purchase a removable divider which allows you to turn the three compartments into four for more variety. When inserting the removable divider please ensure that the arrow on the underside of the divider is pointing towards the inside of the lunch box.
You can also add our 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 our Bento Lunch Box Packing Instructions.
Bento Stainless Maxi 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 our Bento Lunch Box Care Instructions for more details.
HOW MUCH FOOD DOES THE LUNCH BOX HOLD?
The Bento Stainless Maxi has extra deep compartments that hold a total of 5 cups of food.
HOW DO I CLEAN MY LUNCH BOX?
Little Lunch Box Co products are all made of durable hard wearing BPA-free, food safe materials. Little Lunch Box Co standard design Bento lunch boxes are top shelf dishwasher safe 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 Stainless Maxi when washing. Make sure both the lunch box and seal are completely dry before reinserting it.
Refer to our 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?
The Bento Stainless Maxi 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 our 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. You can find all of our replacement parts here.
HOW DO I PUT MY CHILD'S NAME ON MY LUNCH BOX?
We recommend using Vinyl stickers to label your child’s lunch box - there are a wide variety of options available online.
DO THE LUNCH BOXES COME WITH A WARRANTY?
Of course! We have a full 12 month manufacturers warranty on our products. Wear and tear is a normal part of any product and common with products made for, and used by, children.
