Alessi Secret Fish Bento Review

Another chapter in the Wayfair saga!

I was graciously sent an Alessi Secret Fish to review, and while not marketed as a bento box that doesn’t mean it can’t be one πŸ™‚

Onto the review

Cost: 3/5

At Β£42 for 2 boxes that puts each box at Β£21. In comparison to other boxes this is quite expensive, I do however believe these boxes are a bento equivalent to your “best china”.

If you’re making a very, very special bento these Alessi Secret Fish could be the box for that!

Size: 3/5

At around 250ml per box they may feel quite small but if you’re using both that’s 500ml which is perfect for smaller appetites!

Ease Of Use: 3/5

It is such a shame I can’t give this a higher mark, it’s distinctive shape was what attracted me to this box but sadly after trial and error it’s shape is what makes it hard to pack.
( This may only apply to me, if you have some ideas feel free to throw them my way and I’ll see what I can do! )

With small spaces in the tail region it may be difficult to get food in or out, especially for younger children.

Style: 5/5

With 3 colour variations and an amazing stylised fish shaped body the Alessi Secret Fish boxes have lots of style. These boxes are sure to get “Wows” and “Ooohs” galore!

I will say however the colours in the photos are extremely bright when in reality the colours are slightly darker, but beautiful all the same with a great speckled detail.

Pros:
β€’ Beautiful shape and colours.
β€’ Great for smaller appetites.
β€’ Perfect for special occasions.

Cons:
β€’ Quite heavy.
β€’ Possibly cost prohibitive.

Overall the Alessi Secret Fish are extremely special items and as such I feel they are not necessarily suitable for everyday use but would be perfect for when a Tupperware box just won’t do!

Disclaimer
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.

As always here is a lunch packed in the box :

This bento contains hard boiled egg mixed into rice with carrot and cucumber details, does it look like a fish?

  1. I think that the lunch looks great and I liked the review. I had never heard of this box before. It would make a great box for a special snack or breakfast. Also maybe an Alien themed breakfast would be fun in this box or a fat rabbit.
