Love This Bento Lunch Box From Francois et Mimi
There are so many times that we pack snacks or lunches when we are going to be gone from home all day or are traveling. For years I have been using resealable plastic bags and a cooler that takes up a lot of room or just another larger bag to stash everything in. The snacks get very disorganized and sometimes crushed. It can be a mess. But when I use our cooler it's either too big to put in the front of the car or it's in the trunk which slows down the trip.
Francois et Mimi sent me the neatest thing that is helping with this mini dilemma we have. It's the Multi-Compartment Stackable Bento Lunch Box. This is the handiest thing! I have seen bento boxes around in the stores and online, but I had not tried one out yet. They made sense to me, but now I really get them and want a couple more!
The stackable boxes come with a wonderful and perfectly sized insulated bag with a small handle. The bag is made from a material that is stain and odor resistant, which is perfect for carrying food. When something gets on it, you can simply wipe it off clean. Love that!
The plastic boxes inside are made with a BPA-free plastic and FDA approved food grade materials. They are microwave, freezer, and dishwasher safe (except the lids in the microwave or dishwasher) and are really easy to use. The lids fit tightly, but are not so tight that they are a pain to get on and off. All three stack securely on top of the others and it comes with a nifty elastic band to hold them all in place. It also has a special top lid that holds a nice set of plastic utensils at the ready to use.
One neat thing is that if you don't need all three containers you can use two and there is room for a small bottle or can of beverage. The insulated bag keeps things nice and cool (or warm) for quite a while!
I love how handy this stackable set is and it is super cute! They are perfect for as nice lunch bag or for a variety of snacks on a trip and being compact, it won't take up a lot of room in your vehicle or at your desk or locker.
