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 🙂

Onto the review

Cost: 3/5

At £42 for 2 boxes that puts each box at £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:
• Beautiful shape and colours.
• Great for smaller appetites.
• Perfect for special occasions.

Cons:
• Quite heavy.
• 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!

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?

Alessi Lily Pond Sushi Set Review

Another review in the Wayfair saga 🙂

This is a review for the Alessi Lily Pond Sushi Set.

20130420-195014.jpg

A beautifully made set inspired by traditional aesthetics with a huge dose of character.

This set contains one bone china plate, one pair of chopsticks, a chopstick stand and a soy sauce bowl.

Cost: 3/5

At £55.00 it is an extremely luxurious purchase but sushi deserves respect. You can’t just stick it on a chipped pound shop plate!

Size: 5/5

Even though there is only plate it is big enough to serve four, if not more!
It does however only come with on chopstick set, stand and sauce bowl.

Style: 5/5

If there is one thing this set has it is style!
Inspired by tradition Asian styles and ideas this set manages to mix sophisticated style with charming pop colours.

The plate is black with lotus detail while the accessories are brightly coloured and charming.

Pros:
• Beautifully made.
• Very stylised, sophisticated while being fun.
• Big enough for parties.

Cons:
• Expensive.
• Only one chopstick set.
