Zojirushi's Classic Bento Stainless Lunch Jar in Ultra Black provides an excellent way to safely and conveniently pack lunch where a microwave or a refrigerator may not be available. You will also appreciate the "greenness" of packing a lunch in our jars, instead of using a paper bag or disposable container.

  • Holds hot or cold meals
  • Durable stainless steel construction and vavuum insulation
  • 3 microwaveable inner bowls (except lid)
  • Nonstick coated washable inner container
  • Includes forked spoon, chopsticks, carrying strap and protective cover

Customer Reviews:

  • durable, useful, but a little pricey....
    It sure keeps the food warm if you follow the instructions well. I don't need the chopsticks, but the spork is helpful. I'll give it a 5 if it came with a bottle holder.......more info
  • Very nice.
    Overall, this jar is high quality. If is worth the price, for sure. My only complains regard the spoon and the latches. The spoon can be carried only in the bag but the chop sticks attach to the jar itself. They should have localized this thing and given us a place to store the spoon on the jar. The other problem I have is that the latches, used to hold the jar closed, feel loose and cheap. They have not failed me and they don't seem to be fading in reliability...but I won't be surprised if they turn out to be a problem. I've only had the jar for a couple weeks. Man, it looks great and it keeps my food pretty hot. I was afraid that it would be too small to hold a complete meal but it's actually a good size. I eat quite a bit too. ...more info
  • Zojirushi Classic Bento Vacuum Lunch Jar Gets the Job Done
    I liked the quality of the most of this product except the plastic containers. I would have like a stronger material for the inner containers; maybe stainless steel, or stronger, nonreactive plastic container. Warning: Do NOT use the spork that comes with this product, or any other sharp, or abrasive object with the plastic inner containers! The plastic inner containers will scratch off and you will eat plastic in your food! (The plastic shavings don't disappear, duh!) This product is made in Thailand FYI....more info
  • Lunch Box
    I had the earlier Zojirushi Classic Stainless Lunch Jar, which had a much larger main contain - 20 oz i believe, where as this one is probably only a 16 oz. i've used this for about 2-3 weeks now and i've absolutely enjoy having the bag, spork, and the dark containers. the best thing about this bag is that it's completely compatible with my original classic. spork is like everyone else, abrasive, and not meant to be used as a soup spoon (though could if tried). Nonetheless, i still highly recommend this item ...more info
  • Love it everyday!
    Purchased for my children 6 and 8. After reading reviews, I went with the Classic lunch jar with dark plastic containers so they food containers would not show stains from food,e.g., spaghetti sauce. The jars sizes are perfect for young or adults and do help with portion control. All components are easy to clean and durable. The small soup jar needs to be closed tightly which can be hard for little ones to open. I was concerned about the price but feel like this is a great value and am quite happy with the purchase....more info

  • Great update to Zojirushi's bento line!
    I have several lunch jars from Zojirushi -- Mr. Bento, Mini Bento, and now this updated version of the Classic Bento. All the containers are great in terms of reducing costs spent on eating out, minimizing the garbage of packing lunches in disposable containers, and even helping with portion control for weight loss.

    So while they're all great, I gotta say that of the three Zojirushi lunch jars I have -- the Classic Bento is my favorite! While I love the four containers that come with Mr. Bento, there's always a lot of concern about staining them. They're a light grey color and are easily discolored by things like tomato soup or pasta sauce.

    The Classic Bento's containers are a very dark grey (darker than they look in the Amazon product picture), meaning that stains just don't show. Brilliant! In addition, both the main entree container and the side dish container are larger than the Mr. Bento's equivalent containers. So even though you have one less container, it's pretty close to the same amount of food space.

    The lunch jar itself is sleek and black. Although it comes with a great insulated bag, I really like that the jar has straps attached so that if you don't need the added insulation, you can just toss the jar itself over your shoulder....more info
  • Hey-oh...go go bento, yo.
    On a whim more than anything else, I purchased one of these other Zoji bento boxes for my 10 yr-old early this school year. She loves the fact she can have a warm/hot meal at lunch, and I think she loves the novelty of being the only kid doing the bento-thing as well. I like that she eats healthier now.

    Honestly, the bento doesn't take much more time than a bag lunch to prepare in the mornings either. We have a Zoji rice cooker that is programmed to finish cooking by 6:30am, and the soup and/or chicken and/or beef is a quick zap in the microwave. Some fruit, veggies, chips, and/or a cookie and voila...healthy lunch (for a kid who is worth it---most of the time.) .)

    Like other reviewers mention, prepping the containers you want to keep hot (I even prep the lower-third of the bento metal container itself) with some steaming water for 4-5 minutes before you pack the food in those containers will help you keep things warmer...longer.

    So, my kid liked it so much, I bought this one. I have used mine now for a few weeks, and I am a bento fan like her.

    FYI, we have yet to buy something from Zojirushi that has failed to exceed our every expectation. ...more info
  • Keeps things warm until lunch
    This works out really well if you are not near a microwave at lunch time. Make sure to follow their layer method of hot things in the bottom two containers and something that's okay at room temperature in the top, and you are set to go. It works really well with leftovers from the night before, and gets you out of the habit of eating out, which saves money and is probably healthier, too. ...more info
