Bento boxes are so cool! But they’re super expensive for what they are. I mean you can get a whole set of tupperware with the price of just one bento box. That is why I set out to find the best bento box at the most affordable price, and I think I found it! You’re going to love this bento box review!
So, most bento boxes are two layers, which actually doesn’t work too great for Gursheel and I. We usually take fruit, vegetables and a meal to work, so three layers is ideal. This bento box that I found is three layers, ships to Canada and the final price (including shipping and taxes) is less than $32 CAD for 2 boxes! That comes out to be $16 each. Although to get this price, you need to buy 2 boxes and also allows for free shipping. I bought it on Amazon.ca and got it the next day, thanks to the almighty one day shipping!
I don’t know about you but that price is unheard of for a high quality bento box! (My friend bought a mon bento box for $40!) And this bento box is actually much better than others, since it is BPA free, microwavable, leak proof, has a divider and three whole layers! It comes in blue, pink and green, so I bought the blue one for myself and the pink for Gursheel (hehe, I’m kidding)!
I can’t wait to share meal planning ideas revolving around this bento box. So, get your hands on this box before prices increase!
When you go to Amazon.ca and find this box or you can use this link to get there directly: Bento Box, you will find that the price is $16.99 for the blue one and $17.99 for either the green or pink one. However, when you go to checkout, a discount will be applied. For us it was $3.50! I bought another item that I needed with this order so I could get free Amazon Prime shipping (total needs to be $35 for this).
So, now on to the actual bento box review. Since I got this bento box the day after I ordered it, I went right to work to test it out. It microwaves perfectly, but I wouldn’t put the lid on it since it may get ruined (didn’t want to ruin it so didn’t test this out). It also is definitely leakproof, since I put some dhal (lentil soup) in the bottom compartment and shook it around, and nothing leaked!
The other concern I had was it seemed small. The bottom layer is deeper than the top two. I thought our fruit wouldn’t fit, but I tested it out using the largest fruit we usually pack: the honeydew, and it fit perfectly! So, I think the size is perfect!
Anyways, I’m sure it is back to school for a lot of you and I thought I would join in on the excitement on starting fresh. My goal is to start eating healthier because I know how important it is to take care of your body through the food you eat and this bento box is a good way to start. I hope you guys enjoyed this bento box review and if you guys purchase this box let me know what you think? I can’t wait to share healthy recipes and meal planning guides using this bento box!
