Laptop Lunches Review and Fajita Bento

I have wanted to get my hands on a Laptop Lunches bento system for a long time but alas I live in the wrong part of the world for most bento goodies.

UNTIL NOW!

No, sadly I’m not moving but Laptop Lunches are now available in the UK on Amazon!

And the wonderful ladies at Laptop Lunches have sent me two sets of their awesome product, one to review and one to give away to you wonderful people! (As this is a long post I will be doing the giveaway in a separate post tomorrow)

If you haven’t seen a Laptop Lunches system before they are genius!

They’re made up of smaller boxes inside a protective case. These boxes allow you to pack guided amounts of each food group in an easy way. You don’t even need to make fancy bento to make them look good, the layout of the box helps make that happen!

Onto the review:


Cost: 4/5


For £30.35 on Amazon you can get your hands on the great Laptop Lunch system, an insulated bag and a set of stainless steel cutlery. While £30.35 may sound expensive you do get a lot for your money.

Each set is comprised of 5 inner boxes of varying sizes and one outer protective case.

It is definitely worth the cost i say.

Size: 5/5

With a large size this box is perfect for everyone.
Packing for someone with a small appetite? Take out some of the inner boxes and replace with a juice box.

Packing for an adult? No problem, this box is far big enough for an adult appetite!

The five boxes that come with the system range in size and consist of:
• 400ml
• 300ml
• 200ml
• 150ml
• 50ml

Ease of Use: 5/5

One of the challenges with packing lunches is working out what should go where to make it look appetizing etc.

This box takes away almost all of that worry. Each box can be used for a food group which allows you to pack in a short amount of time while still making a cool lunch that can be jazzed up quickly with picks etc.

Style: 5/5

One of the great things about the Laptop Lunch system is the amount of colours and styles available.

So far there are 13 choices of colour mixes available, that doesn’t mean that is all there can be. With separate inner boxes available you can mix and match until you have the perfect set for yourself.

Pros:

  • Quality product
  • Versatile
  • Easy to use
  • Great for all the family

Cons:

  • Could be cost prohibitive
  • Made up of multiple pieces which may be hard for a young child to manage

Overall a great product and I’m sure I’ll get lots of use out this awesome system.

Here is a lunch I prepared in my Laptop Lunch system :

This lunch contains everything needed to make very tasty fajitas!
It includes:
• Spicy chicken pieces
• Red and Green peppers
• Sweet corn
• Grated carrot
• Lettuce and
• Mayonnaise

REMEMBER TO CHECK BACK TOMORROW FOR THE GIVEAWAY! YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS OUT ON AN AWESOME, FREE LUNCHBOX RIGHT?

Monthly target hit!!!

Hello again everyone!
It seems like forever since I did a post!

This post is just a quick one to say that the Oh!Bento blog reached its monthly target of 1000 views! In fact I was surprised to see we beat it by quite a margin! So well done and Thankyou everyone!

Also a quick note on the giveaway I mentioned in the previous targetpost.

If this blog reaches 5000 views by the end of this year I will be holding a giveaway.I will be giving away a bento box, you will have a choice from a selection, and possibly some other little bento goodies, meaning you could have a great new bento for the new year ahead!

And again, THANKYOU!!!
