Daiso Lovely - Problems?

Hey everyone! I bought my first bento box in July, a blue Daiso Lovely but within a couple of days that one broke. The seal on the top layer had kind of peeled back. Japan Centre then sent me a new one, free of charge :D and this has been fine, until today when the same thing happened! This time however I had a cabbage ball in there and a little gratin cup (hmm wonder where those recipes came from xD) so the juices leaked all over my bag :(

Anyone else had problems like that with these type of boxes? Or am I just unlucky and got two from a defective batch?

I have emailed Japan Centre again to let them know. Don't know what will happen as I think its outside of those 28 days...

Do they have more bento boxes in their store? I am visiting London town on Friday and Saturday (busy bee!) so if they stock any higher end stuff, that maybe more sturdy, I may get another.

Hi Leelee

I tend to use lock-and-lock for 'wet' stuff - one too many handbag leaks!

Japan Centre also sells the urara (red, blue, mustard) boxes, but they are most definately not watertight. I know the lovely box is supposed to be airtight, but I don't trust any daiso boxes to be water-tight!

It has been great before at keeping grease out of my bag, but its because it broke. And thats the second one I have had thats broke, thats my issue.

I wouldn't trust it with say soup or something, but with this, well as I said I never had a problem before... :( I hate when things break

So I got myself a Sistema lunch cube for now. Quite nice, compartments etc but its a very large capacity compared to before! 1.2L (?) One half of the box fits all the lunch I used to take. And its not as dainty.

I am going to take my boxes to Japan Centre in London to see if they can sort something out and so they can inspect it. I may find a nicer, more sturdy box there as well.

Salad for lunch for a while then? Big boxes are good for salad.

Yep it will have to be I guess. I don't like salad in cold weather either, but oh well!
