Rilakkuma bento box review and simple vegetarian bento!

I was sent a great little product from Keep It Secret to review, a Rilakkuma bento box!

I received the Kiiroitori variation:

Isn’t he cute!

This box is a two tiered bento box and includes a pair of Rilakkuma chopsticks:


Now onto the review!

Cost: 5/5
At £9.99 this box is a bargain! It’s extremely hard to get an authentic Japanese box in England and if you do find one its usually £30+

Size: 5/5
This box is roughly 600ml which is a great size for a box regardless of age or gender. The bottom layer is around 200ml and the top layer is 400ml. This would allow children to have a very filling meal and maybe a snack, or an adult to have a bento without feeling hungry after it has been eaten.

Ease Of Use: 5/5
This shape and style of bento is extremely popular for a reason, because it works. There is no crafty corners to try and fill and with a little know how a varied and delicious meal can be packed quickly and efficiently.

Style: 2.5/5
The reason I have given this box half marks is because you will either love it or hate it. Chances are this box will only appeal to children or adults with a slight childish streak. It’s hard to imagine a 40 year old business man in a suit pulling this box out in front of his colleagues.

• Authentic Japanese bento.
• Very popular character.
• Cheap and easy to pack.
• Included chopsticks.
• Colourful and eye catching.

• Will only appeal to a certain market.
• So cute you will never want to use a plate again! ( ok so that’s not a real con but I had to say something right?)

And here is a very simple vegetarian bento packed in this box:


It contains rice with a bit of salad cream mix in ( it sounds horrible but try it and you’ll love it!), meatless mince, a cherry tomato and mixed vegetables.

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.
