What sort of meals do you carry with your Mr. bento (if you have it/and use it)
and does anything about it peeve you?





I like everything except that it doesn't come with a beverage thermos.. just makes lunch incomplete but really can't complain about having a super hot four course meal and saving a good $7 on lunch or more if end up having dindin outside too...

let me know if you have recipes and if anything about it annoys you...

it is relatively unheard of 'me thinkus?'
I am an advocate of making your own lunch at home, don't care how rich or poor you are, but not so much for financial reasons although it is a major plus in my opinion, but because when you buy lunch outside you will always compromise something.. refined sugar, too much fat, artificial colors, fried foods etc
When you think of what you'll pack, I think you will make wiser choices. also if you have kids you can have a more direct control over what they ingest.

for me personally, I have many gastrointestinal problems and can't eat many of the things offered in cafeterias or restaurants, almost inevitably I end up getting cereal or yogurt -- at least at home I get to add honey and fruits to the yogurt I pack, also since I am lactose intolerant I will be able to pack lactaid pills or bring from home lactaid milk and special yogurt so I am not dying all day from an intestinal tornado.

I know it seems a little over priced but it will pay for itself in exactly 7~8 days...

I don't think it is practical for teenage boys though because of their voracious appetite this is really about portion control.. I think a regular ole brown paper bag will do in their case? ^o)

Man that looks huge :D.. MR. Bento is relatively benign looking you can even carry it like a regular thermos for beverage alone.. you don't want to stand out just because you brought lunch from home...

I love everything Japanese made :coolious:

lol tiffin seems obsolete man..

Anyhow Mr. Bento comes in many difeerent sizes even for kids....
Think I'll get my sis one like mine but a different color..
it is meant for soup/rice/steamed veggies/desert or condiments in the last compartment.. only the bottom two are for hot items.. so it is good for your mother's left overs but not really if you are a sandwitch person.. although some people in some of the posted pix at amazon, do in fact use it for sandwitch, salad, soup and yogurt..

I just really wanted more easy luch recipes lol..
