- Capacity: Approximately 720ml.
- Lovingly made one-by-one in Odate, Akita (Japan) by local craftsmen
Materials: Japanese Cedarwood, Polyurethane
What we love about it:
Wood is only lightly coated which allows rice packed inside to breathe, making it taste great even when at room temperature.
Wonderful cedar smell that makes your food taste even better.
Features the Bento&co logo on the inside of the lid.
Silky smooth surface and amazing workmanship.
- Do not microwave or place in dishwasher or oven. Best for carrying food to be enjoyed at room temperature.
- Pack foods that may stain the wood in a separate container, or in divider cups.
- To wash, fill the bento with lukewarm water and allow it to soak for 5 to 10 minutes max.
- Empty the water and wipe all sides of the bento and lid with a soft sponge and a mild dish detergent and rinse.
- Wipe with a soft cloth, then allow to air-dry with lid off in a well-ventilated place away from sunlight.
Taxes & Customs FeesAs our products are shipped from Japan they may be subject to taxes and to customs fees in the country of delivery. These costs are the customer’s responsibility.
For our customers in the USA:
Most packages with a declared value that is under $2000 USD will be cleared without any fees.
For our customers in Australia:
Orders below $1000 AUD are regarded as 'low value imports' by Australian customs. As of 01 July 2018, customs duties may apply to any goods imported from overseas by consumers in Australia. For more information please visit the Australian customs website.
For our customers in Canada:
Orders above $20 CAN require that you pay the applicable duties and the GST. For more information please visit the Canadian customs website.
For our customers in the EU:
From 1 July 2021, import VAT is payable on all goods entering the EU, irrespective of their value. For goods with a value of more than €150 you will have to pay Customs Duty in addition to import VAT. The customs value on which Customs Duty is calculated is the cost of the goods plus transport (including postage), any insurance and any handling charges to deliver the goods to the EU. The rate of Customs Duty that applies depends on the goods you import.
Carrier handling fees are typically $10 to $20.
To minimize fees, we recommend selecting the ePacket shipping method and not the Express Shipping Method.
We understand that custom fees are worrying for some of you. We hope that you are reassured by the fact that, when buying on Bento&co, you really are ordering direct from Japan- getting authentic and original Japanese items that are not easily found anywhere else.
For Express Shipping: FedEx, UPS and DHL usually send an invoice a few days after delivery where as EMS (JP Post shipped, delivered by your National Post) generally charges the required sum at delivery.
For Registered & Economy Shipping: Your national carrier will generally bill you when applicable.
How Magewappa Bento Boxes are Made
Magewappa craftsmen cut sustainably-sourced Akita cedar into thin strips, and then boil the wood to soften it. Then, they curve the wood strips using a wooden mold. The bent wood is dried and then bound with strips of dark cherry wood bark into bento boxes.
