The seal in our Bento's is designed to stop the transfer of wet foods with the consistency of tub yoghurts (not squeeze packs) and dips, not liquids such as salad dressings, soups or sauces.
Follow these four easy steps to avoid transfer of foods:
1. Use only foods with the recommended consistency above.
2. When packing foods such as tinned or cut fruit, particularly fruits such as watermelon and citrus, ensure you remove all excess liquid with paper towel before placing into the lunchbox. If you are worried about the transfer of certain foods place the food into the empty lunch box and stand it on its side for 15 minutes to test.
3. When placing food or wet foods into each compartment leave a 5mm gap between the food and the top of the compartment to ensure the lid is able to close properly allowing the seal to engage.
4. Once you have finished packing your Bento box close the lid and latch, place both palms on top of the lid and give it a firm push to ensure the seal has engaged.
We recommend you pack your Little Lunch Box Bento into a cooler bag with a cold pack to keep the contents cool and avoid spoiling.
