You must have experienced many times how important visual image is during meals.
Has it ever occurred to you that not only food, but also the serving of meals strongly influence our appetite, mood and the way we feel in general?
Imagine the difference between freshly prepared food or even leftover being tossed into a plastic bag or a crappy plastic dish compared to arranging it in a stylish and aesthetic bento box with a little care.
When you get hungry and unpack your meal, the sight of a bento box already fills you with positive emotions. The exquisite design and tastefully arranged food both contribute to your feeling of being important, since you deserve not only the intrinsic value, but also the exterior to be in compliance with your style.
Wherever you take your meal in BentoHeaven’s bento box, you can be sure that you will be able to eat your meal from it in a perfect condition and toothsome way. In addition, we try to help parents with our products to nourish their children in the right way, as children tend to be happier to take their meals from home in a stylish lunch box equipped with cutlery. It also becomes easier for parents to guide them towards healthy nutrition. You can be sure that once you pack your child’s lunch in BentoHeaven’s bento box and arrange the food with some creativity, you will not have any problems with meals from then on! On the contrary…Our aim at BentoHeaven is to make you feel as if you were in heaven every time you eat from our bento box.
1What is Bento?
Bento is a Japanese term meaning a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine. A traditional bento holds rice, fish or meat, with pickled or cooked vegetables. Japanese homemakers often spend time and energy on a carefully prepared lunch box for their spouse, child, or themselves. Our lunch boxes follow these traditions by offering stylish and functional solutions to carry your meal.

It is not recommended to use in the microwave for over 3 minutes.

Still we recommend that you hand wash the top lid and the divider between the two containers. Note: for optimal use of your plastics products, please refer to your dishwasher notice and place your bento boxes in the upper part of your dishwasher in order to keep them away from the heat resistance at the bottom. It is also advisable to choose a washing program at temperatures below 75°C/167°F.

Total height of the two containers with top lid is 7.3″ x 4″ x 4.3″ (18.5 x 10.6 x 10.8 cm). One container is 7.2″ x 4.2″ x 2.2″ with the top lid (18.5 x 10.6 x 5.4 cm).
7Is the BentoHeaven bento box Leak proof?
Yes, BentoHeaven bento box is leak proof. The dividers of the containers are silicone-lined lids, which seal the boxes to avoid any spills, and also keep your food fresh. Make sure you close the air ventilation plugs when closing the container.
8How can I open the container?
When opening the container, lay the lunch box on the table. First open the small air vent on top of the lid to release the vacuum seal. Then hold the container with one of your hands, and lift one of the corner notches with your other hand. It can be difficult first, since in order to ensure the leakproof design, the silicone lined lids need to keep tight. Therefore it is recommended to do some test runs by taking it apart a few times and putting it back together before you start using it.
9How can I close the container so it stays leakproof?
When closing the container, first open the air ventilation plug on the lid, so while placing the lid on the container the remaining air can come out from the box to get the vacuum seal closed (you will hear it). Once the lid is fixed on the container, close the ventilation plug and this way you can avoid any spill and your box will remain leakproof.
