yum... I might just have to start doing this for my lunches! My cousin's wife is from Japan and puts together the most beautiful and cute ones for their 4 year old for her daycare lunch! Wish she lived nearby so she could do them for me too!

There are bento boxes of many sizes styles and price points.

I go with with the basic Lock Lock plastic containers for everyday, but I have bought cute ones as gifts for others. Someday I would like to buy the fancy Zojirushi or Tiger ones for my son as they are generously sized for a man and great looking too.

Here's a site:

Eating lunch now feels like something special, and not like I'm living on rice and rabbit food... the only catch is that I can't just throw things in a bag and race out the door. Have to actually cook the salmon or chicken or beef strips, etc.

I have a zojirushi and love it.

Amazon sells them too - check out the bento spark team - they'll give you lots of ideas on Bento boxes and Tiffins. I bought mine at one of the Asian markets in town for much less than I see them on websites for and it was helpful to be able to see the actual sizes vs a pic.

Yeah, they sell tons on ebay. That's where I got all mine. You can just go to ebay and type in "bento". I also don't know if this is appropriate or allowed but I am putting a link for a website called "Just Bento" that has ads to where you can buy bentos but be warned they are more expensive there. I just stick with ebay.

Nice to know there are other bento fans! emoticon

I've been looking fo bento boxes for more than a year. All I've found are kid sized snack bento boxes. Do you know of a website where I can order adult bento boxes?

Hello, does anyone use a bento on this site? If so what kind? I recently found my old ones (a white adult bento and a Hello Kitty snack bento) and I was thinking of picking up the bento maddness again for lunch since it seems to be such a great portion controller. Just wanted to know if there were any other bento fans.
