Zojirushi Expands Mr. Bento Lunch Jar Assortment

Zojirushi has expanded its Mr. Bento lunch jar assortment with four new colors.

The brand’s Mr. Bento jar is now available in Blueberry, Plum, Carbon Black and Stainless. The jar has a vacuum insulated outer container, four microwaveable inner containers, a forked spoon and tote.

The four microwaveable inner bowls include a 9-ounce soup bowl, 15-ounce main bowl and 10-ounce and 7-ounce side bowls. The soup and main bowls stack together in the outer container for insulation, and the two side bowls stack on top. The outer lid snaps closed to keep all bowls contained for easy transport.

The company said the gasket on the soup bowl lid helps to minimize leaks, and a pressure release valve allows it to be opened easily when pressure builds up inside. Made of stainless steel, the outer container features Zojirushi’s insulation technology, keeping foods warm or cold for about six hours, the company said. The non-stick coated inside makes it easy to clean.

The jars in the four new colors are available now.
