So today I finally got round to making a bento in my Black+Blum Bento Box and here it is:
It is my first Christmas bento and it is made up of rice with a cheese and ham shooting star, mixed vegetables and minced beef with onions in a Christmas tree divider.
NOW FOR THE REVIEW
The Bento Box is £13.95 and the Box Appetit is £15.95, I think for how well these are made along with all the unique features that is a small price to pay! Especially when compared with other boxes that can cost more for less.
The Bento Box is 500 ml making it a great size for both children and adults. The Box Appetit is 880ml making it a great size for adults with larger appetites as well as being great for picnics by filling with multiple small dishes.
Both boxes are extremely stylised and it really makes them stand out from the crowd. With their smooth curves giving the box a futuristic look and the specially made plastic a dream to touch these boxes are more gadget than just a lunch box.
Both boxes are available in black or white with a different, subtle coloured seal on the beautiful see-through lid available.
Each comes with its own fork / knife that attaches to the lid through a loop keeping everything neat and together and their own stylised sauce pots with a hinged lid meaning you won’t lose the lid. The Bento Box comes with a divider and the Box Appetit has a large lidded, removable compartment.
The lids on both items have a little recess that when laid on a table becomes a small sauce well for all your dipping needs.
Ease of Packing
Due to the shape of these boxes and the sauce pots / compartments make these lunch boxes extremely easy to pack. The Bento Box is great for a tightly packed, varied lunch and the Box Appetit is great for large helpings of pasta and other “chunky” dishes.
• Great value for money.
• Stand out from the crowd.
• Great sizes.
• Easy to wash and maintain.
• Spill-proof and watertight.
• Unique selling points : fork holder, lidded sauce containers, recess in lid.
• Easy to pack.
• While being sleek, a few more colour choices couldn’t hurt. ( I personally love the colours but I know some people want cuter boxes.
I received the product to review but no cash was exchanged, my review is my honest opinion and has not been swayed by the company or anyone else.
