I do agree..american culture has major portion distortion. it's gonna take some getting used to proper portion. i'm obviously not of that frame of mind as i thought i was.

thanks for the info!

I have 4 lunch size bentos, and some smaller for snacks. My lunch size bentos are 450 - 600 ml, and their size is ok for me. First I was amazed how small they are, and thought I'll never get full. But now I've learned they're ok. And I think of all packed lunches I've eaten before, SO oversized...

Hi and welcome!

Nice to see conversation here! I have been lazy lately - I've been doing bentos to take with me to work, but haven't taken any photos lately...

I do have some pics, some older some newer, maybe I should join Bento Teams photo group. I've been watching group's pics, yummy!

From everything I've read, the amount of mL is approximately how many calories it contains and I made sure to read the comments and all of the information about the size. Its 600mL and I need to eat between 400-500 calories during lunch, so its perfect! (Theoretically. :p)

that is identical to mine, but mine is 3 tiered. it is probably more towards snack size than meal sized being that it's a mini bento, but i do hope it works out for you! it's super CUTE! ^_^

Well, this is the box that I got: http://www.amazon.com/Japanese-Mini-Bento-
Lunchbox-T06418/dp/B00188K0IA/ref=pd_r
hf_p_t_1 and its on its way in the mail right now! I can't wait until I can start posting pictures of mine.

I have noticed that the team's message boards are a little slow, but there's still some interaction and I've noticed at least one of the members posts their pictures to their blog.

Welcome! This team has been rather quiet actually for some time sadly.

But on a positive note, i too recently ordered bentos..though i'll have to look for another one for myself, as the one i ordered is actually quite small, even though it's 3 tiered. it's smaller in capacity then the 2tiered ones my dh and kids have.

please post pics of your bento when you get it ^_^

♥cheers♥

Hi, I've been a member of spark for some time now, but I'm just getting into bentos. I was lurking on one of my favorite forums when someone posted a link to JustBento.com and I was fascinated. I just ordered a bento box off Amazon and I'm looking forward to getting it and starting to make them!

I was also very happy to find this team, and I hope that together all of us can make beautiful, healthful bentos together!
