The parts cannot be machine washed and the top bowl is upside down and used as the lid. The lid is not insulated so only the bottom bowl is insulated. It's a pretty small set up and the directions say the contents will spill if tipped. Not a good choice with anything containing liquid.

This is the perfect size to take with me everywhere. The build quality is excellent and well worth the money.

I purchased this lunch jar to use for school. I am currently in graduate school. I had to show up for an early morning class and did not have time to go buy lunch and did not want a cold lunch. I thought this would fit the bill of keeping a hot meal warm until lunch time. I had bought other simpler systems at kept the meal from being cold, but not warm. This jar works perfectly. The first time I used it, I heated up my lunch at about 7 in the morning. I sat down for lunch at noon. Much to my surprise I opened the jar and the steam from a still hot meal came out. This product works. It may be a bit larger than some other ones, but it works a lot better than any other one that I have tried.

Keeps food at a comfortable temp, easy to carry, goes in the dishwasher and as a bonus, it looks great.

Packed hot soup and opened 5 hours later and it is piping hot. Just remember you can do a Hot lunch or a Cold lunch, you can't mix it up.

Best lunch box ever. We have had it for 3 years now and it works fantastically! Hot food stays hot for hours, cool food doesn't get warm. My daughter loves her Zojirushi Mr. Bento!

Bought it for my wife for Valentines Day. She had been prepping her meals and putting them into a free lunch bag we got from a hotel in Hawaii. I thought this would be a nice alternative to give here a little mix of different things in different bowls. So far she seems to like it. She said the really nice thing about it is never having to look for a container to put some food in since lunch jar is the container.

I was a little skeptical at the price for this, but I was tired of broken leaky tupperware so I took the plunge. This item really delivers. It is compact, but fits plenty of food for someone with a normal appetite. The containers are sturdy, and all fit in the thermos sleeve. The thermos fits in the bag with room for a bottle of water. The spork is also sturdy and nice. The bag is durable and the whole thing is just a really nice package.

I have both the Mr. Bento and the Ms. Bento. Use them for my kids lunches and love them. Now they can eat homemade, healthy, hot food from home. (For hot lunch: Just fill the outer container with hot boiling water for a couple of minutes, then empty the water and put in the individual jars. For cold lunch: fill with ice, put in freezer for a couple of minutes, empty ice, fill with containers.) We hardly ever use plastic bags anymore, it's great. Plus they have already lasted one school year and I expect them to last throughout. If a piece gets lost, you can order a replacement my contacting Zojirushi direct. (I've replaced a couple of the spoon forks - no problem.) I bought different lunch totes so we can also fit a water bottle and an additional piece of fruit. By the way, if you check out the Zojirushi website or call the company, you will find that the plastic is BPA free. I don't know why they don't advertise it but it's true. Too bad the first reviewer returned it not knowing...I couldn't be happier with the purchase! (Deserves 10 stars!)

I love my Ms. Bento! I bought it so that I would cook more food to take to work for lunch, not just buy lunch or make boring sandwiches, and it has worked! There's plenty of room for whatever I want to bring along, and although I haven't tried keeping food hot, it stays cool for hours and hours. The one thing I didn't realize when ordering is that it is a little heavy because of the thermos/insulation, but it's not unreasonable. It's easy enough for me to just put the whole thermos into my bag for work and forget about it.

This is exactly what I have been looking for to help me eat healthy when I know I will be in a place with no healthy options. I am frequently at meetings in someone else's office for the entire day. When we break for lunch, a burger or unhealthy sandwich is usually the only option. Now, I can take my lunch with me and not worry about it spoiling. This keeps cold things cold or hot things hot for hours. It is perfect.

Love it. This was bought for my 10 year old son who uses it on school days when my son does not like the menu. He has used it already 5 times and absolutely loves it. Yes it does take some time cleaning and preparing it for the food that you will be using but the end product is the reason why I bought this product for my son. It absolutely keeps food very hot.

I've been using mine for almost a week now and so far my experience has been all but positive. True to what Zojirushi says, the two bottom bowls keep food hot for hours and the top ones room temperature. Of course, after 5 hours, it's no longer piping hot but still more than hot enough to enjoy the food. I like the four bowls Mr. Bento offers because they offer variety, portion control (not to mention, more balanced diet) and creativity (never enjoyed leftovers as much). True, it can be bulky and a bit heavier than a plastic food container but then again I'd rather carry that weight in a stainless food jar than in my own body only because I used to grab expensive sugar and salt laden unhealthy food at the airports and hotels (I'm a flight crew) all the time. The carrying case also makes it less conspicuous although I think it's a nice-looking jar. I just wish Zojirushi made the jar more grip-friendly using only one hand. I have to hold mine with two hands all the time but considering the health and economical benefits it brings, I really shouldn't mind it. Also, there's no part in the instruction leaflet that says that it's BPA-free, however on their website it does specify that it is BPA-free. Well, if you guys would like to save money by taking with you healthier and more delicious home-cooked meals and save calories by pre-planning the portions of your food (I only emphasize this because I successfully lost 25 lbs and would like to keep those off by eating more sensibly), Mr. Bento might also be the answer to your questions. It takes more time preparing food and cleaning the containers but in exchange for healthy eating and more money saved, I will never complain! Besides, it's really fun to assemble your own food in this food jar and it's slowly becoming like a health ritual for me. It's a bit pricey but mine will have already paid for itself after this week.

bought Ms. Bento for my wife - she needed something classy and cool, instead of the regular polyester/plastic-lined lunchbox that she was carrying around. To be honest, I didn't expect much when I first got it (despite the raving reviews). Some people said that the clips are too weak, etc. It seems to me, however, that this product was very well designed and won't break anytime soon. There is a container for stuff that doesn't need to be kept hot/refrigerated (which is a nice plus), as well as a thermos-like compartment to keep food hot/cold. It's very solid and impressive overall with just enough room to fit a healthy lunch. Highly recommended!

Maybe I didn't look closely enough. I assumed stainless steel meant all of the containers inside and out. The only container that had SS was the large one on the outside. The plastic is not BPA free and my whole reason for buying SS. I am returning for that reason only. Look like great containers in all other ways.

I found the Ms. Bento to be the perfect size for a lunch and snack. The container, when prepped properly, will keep the bottom two containers very warm or cool throughout the (8 hour) work day. The carry bag is large enough to hold the Bento and a bottle of water and just tall enough for a pair of chopsticks. The Bento is a great for those working on portion control. It can carry just about any kind of lunch, from fajitas to pizza (cut up into bite sizes), to soups and trail mix.

This is a great product. It has totally released me from the microwave line on my crowded floor. My lunch is still hot 5 hours later. I preheat with boiling water. It is compact and easy to care for. I highly recommend this product if you are trying to eat a healthy lunch each day.

Oh, for goodness sake, this lunch jar set is just pure awesomeness! I ran across this item by accident and, on reading the rave customer reviews, ordered it for my husband. No more mismatched tupperware for meatloaf and stew lunches! Surprisingly, you can fit enough food in its three containers to feed a grown man a substantial lunch. This product has exceptional design and craftsmanship to the very last precise detail. If not for the Japanese name, I would swear it was German made. Very impressed by its quality and workmanship.

I was searching for a way to get a hot lunch to school for my two girls. I tried several less expensive brands but none of them kept the food warm until lunch. This set does! The bag is even big enough to squeeze in their insulated beverage container as well as a little surprise. Only fault I can find is that it would be nice if the biggest container fit on the bottom to further separate it from the items I pack on the top that do not need to be kept warm. Solid construction. I have only had minor leakage one time and that was probably my fault for not screwing the lid tight enough. Expensive but it delivers!
