A bento box is a container for food. We must first pay attention to its safety when purchasing. Common materials for bento boxes on the market are plastic, glass, stainless steel, and wood.
Plastic bento boxes are the most common, and they are very beautiful and light, that's why it is popular with many people. It should be noted that not all plastics can be put into microwave ovens, only polypropylene (pp) with high heat resistance value can be put into microwave ovens. So be sure to ask the customer service when buying a bento box.
The glass bento box has good heat resistance and airtightness, easy to clean. The disadvantage is that it is slightly heavier and easy to break, and the appearance of the photo will be slightly worse.
Stainless steel bento boxes are also relatively common and easy to clean. This type of lunch box is mainly for heat preservation, and similarly there are thermos cups and stuffy beakers. The heat preservation effect and the sealing effect are great, but the disadvantage of that it is inconvenient to carry.
The Japanese-style log lunch box has good air permeability, can maintain the elasticity of the rice, and has a very high appearance. It is especially suitable for taking pictures, but it has many shortcomings like poor sealing, difficult cleaning, and bacteria breeding.
