Stainless Steel Bento Box Storage Containers- Still working towards #noplastic

i'm still moving forward on my goal to eliminate most of the plastic in my kitchen. One area i still struggle with is storage containers and in the kids lunch boxes for school. Both kids take a reusable lunch box, and i try to use reusable containers instead of plastic bags as much as i can.  i've looked at different stainless steel lunch compartment boxes like planet box, but they just are not big enough for my high school son.   i use a lot glass for storage in my kitchen, but the kids are not allowed to have glass containers on the school bus, so i can't pack glass in their lunch boxes.

So when i had the opportunity to review these Stainless steel bento box storage set, i was thrilled! The set comes with three different sized containers, and leak proof lids.  The lids are made from plastic, but it is BPA free and has a silicone ring seal inside to prevent leaking. These containers fit inside each other with their lids on for easy storage. 

The containers are lightweight, but durable. They are made from 304 (18/8) grade stainless steel and are completely food safe  The  different sizes hold approx 1 cup, 2 cups and 4 cups.  So these work well to store leftover, or to pack a good size meal for a growing teenager. The only downside, is that they can not be heated in a microwave, so they are best for packing cold foods.

  • BENTO LUNCH BOX SET: These food grade stainless steel lunch box set includes three different sized boxes. Great for leftovers, entrees, sandwiches, salads and snacks. This set makes it easy to transport food to work and school each day. 

  • STAINLESS STEEL: Our high quality food storage container set does not degrade or rust. Each stainless steel box is carefully constructed to be reliably rust proof, unlike other so-called stainless steel containers. Stainless steel does not break, like glass, and is super lightweight in your lunch bag. Our design is durable, reusable and eco-friendly.

  • LEAK PROOF LUNCH CONTAINERS: Each container has a plastic lid with a liquid tight seal that fits on easily. No need to worry about spills or leakage. 

  • DISHWASHER SAFE: The containers are dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. They do not absorb odors or stain like plastic. 

This Stainless Steel Bento Box Food Storage set is available on amazon for $24.99.

These are a nice addition to my kitchen and help me to get closer to my goal of #noplastic in my kitchen. i like this set a lot, my only complaint is the plastic lids. i would prefer them to be entirely silicone, but i appreciate that they are at least BPA free and have the silicone seals. 

*i received this set for free or heavily discounted in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. i was not compensated for my review. 


  1. Hi Tree! I've followed you for some time but very rarely comment. I use stainless steel containers, though, so I thought I'd let you know about my current favourite brand: Onyx containers. You can look them up online. They have stainless steel lids with silicone seals so there's no plastic anywhere. They have leakproof containers as well as insulated containers. The only problem is that they don't have containers that are both leakproof AND insulated. If you do come across those, can you please post about it? I've been searching for a while now. Thanks! Emily (from Canada)

  2. Hi, thanks for commenting! i will check out this brand, thanks for the recommendation! i'll definitely let you know come across any leak proof insulated containers. have a great day!
