All the recipes on Just Bento are bento friendly. They are meant to be eaten cold (at room temperature), and do not need reheating at lunchtime unless specified otherwise. They also hold up well and do not spoil for a few hours. There are a few recipes or bento combinations for which an ice pack, or alternatively a thermal lunch jar or re-heating in a microwave is recommended, but that is clearly stated in the recipe.

You can click on the Categories to get relevant lists. For example: Japanese recipes; Not Japanese recipes; vegan recipes and so on.
