Little Lunch Box Co Bento Boxes FAQ

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE BENTO THREE & FIVE?

Though the Bento Three and Five boxes look the same on the outside and are the same size, they have different configurations inside!

The Bento Three has 3 compartments and is good for larger items like a full sandwich or wrap.

The Bento Five has 5 compartments, so it’s great for packing more variety or for ‘grazers’ who prefer small amounts of different foods.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE BENTO THREE+ AND THE ORIGINAL BENTO THREE?
Though they both have 3 compartments, the Bento Three+ is much bigger than its original counterpart. The Bento Three+ comes with 2 removable dividers, the Bento Three doesn’t come with any but they can be purchased separately.

The Bento Three+ 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 MUCH FOOD DOES THE LUNCH BOX HOLD?

The Bento Two lunch boxes hold 500mL which is 2 cups of food.

The Bento Three and Five lunch boxes both hold 980mL which is just under 4 cups of food.

The Bento Three+ lunch boxes hold 1300mL which is approx. 5 1/4 cups of food.

The Bento Stainless Maxi has extra deep compartments that hold a total of 5 cups of food.

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. 

HOW DO I CLEAN MY LUNCH BOX?

BENTO TWO, THREE AND FIVE 

Unless otherwise stated in the product descriptions, the standard design Bento lunch boxes are top shelf dishwasher safe on wash cycles <45 degrees celsius. Glitter lunch boxes are not suitable for cleaning in the dishwasher.  

BENTO STAINLESS MAXI AND BENTO THREE+

We recommend hand washing these lunch boxes in hot soapy water and drying in an open, upright (like a tent) position overnight. 

Please remove the seal on the lid of the Bento Stainless Maxi or Bento Three+ when washing and clean with soapy water. Make sure both the lunch box and seal are completely dry before reinserting it. 

All our Lunch Boxes are top-rack dishwasher safe at 45 degrees which is a cooler setting than most dishwasher cycles. Please wipe any extra moisture from the inside and outside of the lunch box after the dishwashing cycle is complete. Hotter cycles may cause the lunch box to warp, voiding your warranty. Hand washing is recommended if you run your dishwasher on a hotter cycle.

CAN I PRE-PACK THE LUNCH BOX THE NIGHT BEFORE?

Yes! Because each compartment is airtight, Little Lunch Box Co 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? 

Our Bento lunch boxes are leakproof for wet foods only, like dips and yoghurts, thicker sauces etc. They are NOT leak proof for liquids, like salad dressings, soup or sauces. 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.

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 latches. 

Some of Little Lunch Box Co older Bento Three and Five Lunch Boxes have a different style of latch which is attached to the lid. Please get in touch with us at support@montii.co if you need this style of latch or if you are unsure which style you have.

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.
