Bento Box on a Daily Basis

I love steam-cooking food and if you keep scores with Masterchef (or Hell’s Kitchen) you soon realize that ‘keeping it simple’, is always the winning dish. Adding to the simplicity is this Bento Box portable steamer and lunchbox. In one clean sweep you get to cook a delicious healthy meal that stays fresh and vibrant. The box uses induction cooking elements and steams water through the course of the body. Different parts of the meal like vegetables, protein, and grains are separated into various containers for easy cooking.

Bento heats up the assembly’s base using inductive technology, creating steam from water added to the grains in the bottom container. The steam naturally rises up the assembly, simultaneously cooking the grains as well as the contents of the top two containers. The double-walled containers act like a thermos and keep the contents warm. It also features a built-in timer, which allows it to be programmed to begin cooking at a desired time.
