The bento box's popularity has spread across different cultures because of its versatility. The origin of the word "bento" means "convenience" or "convenient" and rightfully so because of the many conveniences it presents.
Eating on the Go
Bento lunches in early Japan were meant to store rice and food so they can be eaten later. Today, bento boxes allow people on the go to eat at their comfort, and they can always go back to the box if they have leftovers.
The containers usually come in small lunch boxes that are easy to carry around and do not take a lot of space in school bags or backpacks. The meals are also moulded or divided into bite-sized pieces that are easy to consume during travels or quick breaks.
Pack and Take as Many as You Like
Some bento boxes can be stacked on top of each other while others have deep compartments that can store layers of food. Some even have dividers that let you pack different types of food in one container. Because bento boxes are tightly packed, it retains the freshness of the food inside.
This feature of bento boxes allows people to serve as much food as they like and take as many as they can without worrying about the freshness of the dishes. The divided compartments can also let you enjoy both soup-based dishes and dry foods together.
