On the hunt for an eco-friendly bento box (that’s cute to boot)? frank green’s bento boxes will take your lunches to the next level (literally). Cook, contain, stack and go! Our bento boxes will keep your lunch toasty warm or cool as a cucumber for hours on end. The best part (other than their sweet style)? Like all our food storage containers, they’re 100% plastic-free, so while you’re consuming, you’re being conscious—gotta love that!
The sky’s the limit with three spacious compartments, each usable by themselves, or all together stacked in a tower. Want to keep your chia pudding cold and your pasta bake warm? No problem! The triple-wall vacuum insulation means that everything stays at the right temperature within their own compartments. And if you like your bento box cute as well as functional, the sleek, modular design comes in three fun colours - Bushed, Mint Gelato, and Cloud - making them the perfect lunchtime accessory. Mix and match for the perfect look to suit your mood.
What is a bento box?
Bento boxes are Japanese-style lunch boxes that are convenient and portable, with individual compartments that keep flavours separate. Hate your lettuce touching other food before you’re ready to eat it? Store it separately for peak freshness come lunchtime! The beauty of frank green bento boxes (outside of their deliciously stylish design) is each compartment is triple-wall vacuum insulated to keep the temperature just right. Whatever fantastic creation you make, it won’t ever feel like limp leftovers in these beauties.
What to put in a bento box?
Traditionally, bento box compartments contain rice or noodles, a protein, vegetables, and pickles or fruit, all meticulously arranged to create an unforgettable lunchtime experience. But it’s all down to what you enjoy having for lunch! With a large bento box like our frank green stackables, you can choose to stick with tradition or break it, storing all your favourites from seasonal fruits, garden-fresh salads, hearty stews, or chips and dip. Looking for an afternoon pick-me-up? Easy-peasy - just unscrew a container or two. Make it even more indulgent with a French Press coffee and you’re good to go!
What is special about bento lunch boxes?
If you want your lunch in an easy-to-transport package that fits right in your backpack, bento boxes are definitely the way to go. Plus, a bento box that’s insulated like ours means that those hot potatoes stay hot while your cucumbers stay perfectly cool. And because they’re snug in their own compartments, they’ll always have the perfect flavour.
Are stainless steel bento boxes good?
There’s no shortage of materials that bento boxes can be made from. It’s really a personal preference, but a metal bento box, particularly stainless steel, is durable, sustainable, and great at keeping foods hot or cold. Just like our can coolers, travel mugs, and insulated food containers, our frank green bento boxes are made to last with a stainless steel outer, while keeping your flavours deliciously intact with our ceramic inner layer. With these stylish bento boxes by your side, your lunches will always be pure flavour town.
