Unique in design in our store, the 2 Compartment Bento Lunch Box from Avanti combines the durability and safety of 304 grade stainless steel holding your food with the lightweight versatility of a plastic base, bpa free plastic lid with a silicone seal not only around the whole box, but between the two compartments as well, making this a Bento Box with Leakproof Compartments.
The base and the lid are microwave safe (not the stainless steel inner) and can be used on their own without the stainless steel tray. To warm food without a microwave, you can lift the stainless steel tray out and half fill the plastic base with boiling water like a Bain-marie. Bear in mind that the stainless steel will become hot to the touch and the heating will be minimal. Place the lid back on and cover it with a towel, put it inside an insulated lunch bag or something else thermal to acheive some warming. We know many people have access to a kettle at work but not a microwave, so this provides a little assistance. Please be careful when handling boiling water.
