A separator or 'balan' is a small piece of plastic film or other material that are used in a bento box to keep certain foods separate from each other, to prop up wobbly foods, or just to add a splash of color. You may be familiar with balan already as 'sushi grass' in takeout sushi boxes.
Separator Lettuce & Leaf consists of 5 leaf-shaped separators made of durable, flexible, microwave and dishwasher safe silicone. You can heat up a bento box with these separators in it without worry, and with care they should last you for years. They add a touch of fresh green to your bento, with no worry about wilting!
Included are 2 lettuce-leaf shaped separators, plus 3 darker green herb-leaf shaped separator. The largest separator is about about 11 cm x 10 cm (4.3" x 3.9") and the smallest one is about 6 cm x 5 cm (2.4" x 2") in size.
Made in Japan.
