Monbento review and Bento lunch

I was graciously sent a Monbento to review, here is the closed box:

And here is a meal I prepared in the box:

It contains: Spicy breaded chicken pieces, tamagoyaki, mixed vegetables, instant cucumber pickles and rice with different flavours inside. Also includes a small dipping pot of mayonnaise.

Now for the review!

Cost: 2.5/5

The Monbento costs €28 (£22.87) each. I have given it a score of 2.5 out of 5 as I feel this price will be too much for some people but acceptable for others. I personally think the box is worth it if bought for an adult with a large appetite that will use the box frequently.

Size: 5/5

The Monbento have a larger capacity than most other bento boxes and are designed with adults in mind. They would generally be too large for children as they are 1 litre, but could be used to pack two child sized meals.

Ease of use 5/5

With a clean and simple design packing the Monbento is extremely easy. They include a divider allowing you to easily separate different side dishes. And being a rectangle there is no need to try and squeeze food into oddly shaped “corners”.

Style 5/5

One of the best things about Monbento is the amount of customisation available. There are many colours available and many ways to mix and match, meaning everyone can have a different look to their lunch box.

Pros:
• Sturdy and well made.
• Great size for adults.
• Choice of colours and designs.
• Good range of accessories.
• water and air tight.

Cons:
• High cost.
• Large size not recommended for young children.

Overall a great box and if you’re an adult wanting a new lunch box I would recommend this highly!
