Basket Bento is a combination bento box and picnic carrier. It has three large boxes that neatly stack together. It's great for carrying along a bento feast for a crowd or a picnic lunch for the whole family.
Basket Bento is available in two beautiful lacquer-look colors: red and black. Please choose your favorite from the pulldown menu when ordering.
Basket Bento is a modern twist on the traditional Japanese stacking bento box, or juubako, used to present feasts at the table as well as to transport meals to eat outdoors. The three stacking boxes can be transported securely in the fitted carrier/handle. A black velcro band holds the lid in place for extra stability.
The upper lid is decorated with a beautiful stylized flower in gold and silver, and the sides of the boxes are adorned with little, golden, four-leafed clovers. The look is traditional yet quite contemporary too.
Use this set for memorable picnics or for a lovely tabletop presentation at your next party!
Basket Bento consists of 5 parts:
- 3 capacious, stacking bento boxes with a total capacity of 2.3 litres (about 10 cups) - that's a lot of sushi or onigiri! Each box or compartment has a capacity of .77 litres. The interiors of the boxes are black, and the exteriors are either red or black.
- An upper lid, decorated in gold; red or black on the outside, and black on the inside.
- A sturdy black holder/carrier that fits around the boxes, with a velcro band that secures the lid.
Overall dimensions: 20.7 × 14 × 20.5 cm (8.2" x 5.5" x 8.15").
