I packed a pretty garden salad, a square hard-cooked egg, and leftover lasagna embellished with cheese words I cut out with my alphabet bento cutters. The lasagna was frozen so it kept the salad chilled :)
The two-tiered MB Original bento box consists of two stackable 7" x 3.5" bento boxes with sealing vented intermediary lids, a removable divider, a top lid that leaves enough space for utensils, and a wide elastic bento strap:
Things I like:
- The lids to the monbento's tiers fit together really easily and securely, they don't need the bento strap to keep them on, and do not leak. The two tiers do need the included elastic strap to keep them together but are perfectly functional individually.
- It's has a real feeling of quality to it, very solid. I don't see the monbento warping, denting, or cracking easily.
- It's stain resistant! My tomato sauce washed right off, even after it was reheated in the microwave !
- It's microwaveable, with neato steam vents that let you keep the inner lid on while heating, to prevent spatter. No mess!
And this is fantastic... monbento has a Customize Your MB Original option! Look, I made one to match Bent On Better Lunches:

It's hip to be square!
I made the square egg shown below using monbento's fun square egg mold. Simply pop in a warm shelled hard-cooked egg, snap the lid closed, and let cool. Each set includes one embossed with the word egg, the other with BON APPETIT. As egg sizes differ, it won't always make a perfect square, but close enough :) I've also used my square egg mold as a treat box in a bento!
