Food storage has come a long way — so if you're still using old takeout containers or brown bagging it, listen up! Whether you're a diligent meal prepper, heading back to school or returning to the office, we just discovered a souped-up solution backed by over 34,000 five-star Amazon reviews. It's the Bentgo Stackable Lunch Container, and it’s currently 50% off. That’s right, you can score this popular bento style for just $15 right now.
Each set comes with a large 54-ounce salad bowl (it fits up to four cups), a tray with four compartments for keeping toppings separated, a 3-ounce sauce container that fits directly in the tray and an air-tight lid to prevent spillage. The included reusable fork is a nice touch (no more worries about forgetting that cutlery!); there's even a utensil cover that locks into the lid to keep the fork clean. We love that each part of the set nests inside each other — meaning the entire kit will only take up the space of the large bowl.
The durable food-grade, BPA-free silicone pieces are top-shelf dishwasher safe, too.
One happy shopper called it “the best salad container,” before adding, “I have used many different types from plastic to stainless steel and this beats all of them. It’s large enough to fit an actual adult-size salad. I like how I can separate all my fixings on top and the greens stay crisp on the bottom. There’s also a dressing container that fits inside the container along with a fork. But the best thing so far is that it is leakproof. That and the container is light. I carry enough stuff to work so this container is perfect.”
Others say it’s great for transporting rice bowls, pasta dishes, soups, and more. “I bought this initially just for salads,” wrote one. “[But] I've since taken to packing rice and pasta dishes in the bottom and putting fruit and dry snacks in the top portion. I use it almost daily and always get so many questions and compliments."
There are eight colors to choose from — all on sale — so you shouldn’t have trouble finding a style (or two) that you love. And shoppers say these won’t get food stains, unlike other food containers on the market.
So if you've been looking for a container that's easy to pack, easy to clean and easy on your wallet, the Bentgo Stackable Lunch Container is it. Grab one (or several) while they're marked down to just $15 apiece.
