Many of products offered at Elliotdepot are popular Japanese brands that are made in Japan, but difficult to find in the United States. Several of the tableware items they carry are limited production items. For the Japanese tableware, they carry only limited quantities of each design, so you can own some of the most unique tableware in the world!
While I prefer to shop American made products 99% of the time, it is occasionally fun to try authentic products from other cultures, and here at our house we are big Bento Box fans!
What Is a Bento Box?
A Bento Box is a compact, balanced, visually appealing meal packed in a box. Historically, it’s a Japanese box lunch, similar in concept to the Indian tiffin, the Korean dosirak, or the Filipino baon lunch. In Japanese, “bento” or “obento” refers to the packed meal, and “bento-bako” refers to the bento box itself. Bento boxes have internal dividers, and sometimes several stacked layers, so different kinds of food sit in their own little compartments. The whole thing is usually wrapped together with chopsticks in a cloth or special bag, and the goal is to make the whole package as attractive as possible.
When I was given the opportunity to review the Takeya Pink Flower Lunchbox with Bag from Elliotdepot along with some fab accessories I couldn’t have been more excited!
This traditional Japanese Bento Box features three compartments that easily remove for cleaning or eating out, and a lid that snaps on securely with two easy-to-use snaps. It also, comes with a traditional Bento Box bag! These BPA-free lunch boxes come in 2 sizes – 500 mL and 650 mL, and are perfect for school lunches, snacks, and meals on the go.
It is the perfect little Bento set, and I had a ton of fun using it to create mini flower shaped turkey & cheese sandwiches and fruit- it was a big hit!
The Bento Vegetable Cutters make perfect size finger food for toddlers, and older children really appreciate having a lunch that truly stands out- take that fruit roll ups!
Elliotdepot also offers a Green Leaf Bento Lunchbox that is perfect for boys, why should girls have all the fun?!
These adorable Takeya Bento Lunchboxes are available at Elliotdepot for just $16.90-$18.90 (depending on size)!
