Zojirushi Mr. Bento® Stainless Steel Lunch Jar
I have both the Mr. Bento and the Ms. Bento. Use them for my kids lunches and love them. Now they can eat homemade, healthy, hot food from home. (For hot lunch: Just fill the outer container with hot boiling water for a couple of minutes, then empty the water and put in the individual jars. For cold lunch: fill with ice, put in freezer for a couple of minutes, empty ice, fill with containers.) We hardly ever use plastic bags anymore, it's great. Plus they have already lasted one school year and I expect them to last throughout. If a piece gets lost, you can order a replacement my contacting Zojirushi direct. (I've replaced a couple of the spoon forks - no problem.) I bought different lunch totes so we can also fit a water bottle and an additional piece of fruit. By the way, if you check out the Zojirushi website or call the company, you will find that the plastic is BPA free. I don't know why they don't advertise it but it's true. Too bad the first reviewer returned it not knowing...I couldn't be happier with the purchase! (Deserves 10 stars!)

I've been using mine for almost a week now and so far my experience has been all but positive. True to what Zojirushi says, the two bottom bowls keep food hot for hours and the top ones room temperature. Of course, after 5 hours, it's no longer piping hot but still more than hot enough to enjoy the food. I like the four bowls Mr. Bento offers because they offer variety, portion control (not to mention, more balanced diet) and creativity (never enjoyed leftovers as much). True, it can be bulky and a bit heavier than a plastic food container but then again I'd rather carry that weight in a stainless food jar than in my own body only because I used to grab expensive sugar and salt laden unhealthy food at the airports and hotels (I'm a flight crew) all the time. The carrying case also makes it less conspicuous although I think it's a nice-looking jar. I just wish Zojirushi made the jar more grip-friendly using only one hand. I have to hold mine with two hands all the time but considering the health and economical benefits it brings, I really shouldn't mind it. Also, there's no part in the instruction leaflet that says that it's BPA-free, however on their website it does specify that it is BPA-free. Well, if you guys would like to save money by taking with you healthier and more delicious home-cooked meals and save calories by pre-planning the portions of your food (I only emphasize this because I successfully lost 25 lbs and would like to keep those off by eating more sensibly), Mr. Bento might also be the answer to your questions. It takes more time preparing food and cleaning the containers but in exchange for healthy eating and more money saved, I will never complain! Besides, it's really fun to assemble your own food in this food jar and it's slowly becoming like a health ritual for me. It's a bit pricey but mine will have already paid for itself after this week.

This is exactly what I have been looking for to help me eat healthy when I know I will be in a place with no healthy options. I am frequently at meetings in someone else's office for the entire day. When we break for lunch, a burger or unhealthy sandwich is usually the only option. Now, I can take my lunch with me and not worry about it spoiling. This keeps cold things cold or hot things hot for hours. It is perfect.

Maybe I didn't look closely enough. I assumed stainless steel meant all of the containers inside and out. The only container that had SS was the large one on the outside. The plastic is not BPA free and my whole reason for buying SS. I am returning for that reason only. Look like great containers in all other ways.

Best lunch box ever. We have had it for 3 years now and it works fantastically! Hot food stays hot for hours, cool food doesn't get warm. My daughter loves her Zojirushi Mr. Bento!
