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