I'm looking for bento boxes that have only one tier and that are about 500-600ml. My preference would go for a metal one. But, this isn't the most important thing. Just one tier bento would definitely be great. I just cannot create in these two tier bento boxes and the tupperware and lock and lock you can find are about 700ml and quite high in comparison to bento boxes.

Any tips?

Re: 600ml aluminium one height bento box

I have a metal container and I like it a lot because I can leave it on the heater in the morning and have a warm lunch :)
However mine is deep and I use it mainly for stuff like soup or risotto.

Have you tried looking in the camping/outdoor department of a sport store? At the moment here it's mostly ski stuff, but when the weather gets warmer it is sometimes possible to find box like this: http://www.sds-group.net/images/accessorio10.jpg similar to the ones Scouts use, it can be used as a box or even as a pan :)

I am also fond of this sandwich box http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gilberts-Food-Equipment-Ltd-432478/dp/B0007VK0KC... but it doesn't list dimension and in any case they only ship to Uk :(

Re: 600ml aluminium one height bento box

Thank you for your tips! Never thought of trying to go through amazon! Really nice and exactly what I was looking for (I just have to check sizes).
Never thought of heating the lunch box directly! Good idea!

Thank you SO MUCH!

I found this one today hunting around on ebay. Seems pretty shallow plus it's super cheap so the shipping shouldn't hurt as badly all together! And she ships anywhere. I'm tempted by this one myself. Hope it helps!

Thank you very much! It's really so nice from you to give me a hand, I spent an entire week-end looking for metal one and didn't find any shipped in Poland... Thank you!
