Video: How a stacking bento box works

by Wendy Copley on May 24, 2010

I’ve had a few questions from readers asking how some of the different bento boxes in my collection work. I know it can be difficult to get a good idea of how these guys fit together and to judge their size from the still pictures you see online, so I’m planning to do a series of short videos to show the boxes in action.

First up is a video showing a stacking bento box:

Here is a close-up view of the bento box that I’m showing in the video:

And here are some examples of lunches that were packed in the box you see in the video:

Amazon has recently started carrying boxes similar to this one that are really cute:

  • Such a nice video! Good work, Wendy! I loooove that box. It seems much, much (much!) nicer than the two-tier boxes I have.

    That is not how I imagined your voice to sound. 😛 Your voice sounds like mine. LOL

  • It's not how I imagine my voice to sound either! I had a cold when I recorded it though, so I wonder if I really do normally sound like that…

  • Oh, also — this box is one of the nicer ones I own. I paid a little bit more for it (around $5, I think) than most of the ones I own and it's held up much better over the last year or so.

  • Nicely done Wendy. That is such a nice bento box, perfect for kids lunches. It sounded like you had a could, and you did such a good job on the video.

    Thanks for the video! I probably would have never figured that out! You should put together some type of bento cook/idea book for kids lunches 🙂
