My Family Super Bento is literally the best thing since sliced bread but we know you may want to know why and how to get the best out of your investment!

Is My Family Super Bento leakproof?

Yes. My Family Super Bento is a leakproof container. My Family Super Bento’s silicone lid mirrors with the different tray configurations to create a leak-proof seal keeping food where you packed it. This includes wet foods like yogurt, hummus and applesauce. Foods will not leak between compartments or outside of the box. NOTE: water will leak between compartments. See below for packing wet foods.

How do I pack wet foods?

My Family Super Bento is designed to hold wet foods but not liquids.

 For best results: 

  • Place your Super Bento in a My Family Cooler Bag to ensure excess warming and condensation
  • Remove any excess liquid from canned fruit, applesauce and yogurts
  • For watery fruit (ie watermelon, orange) place a small square of paper towel below the fruit
  • Do not overfill compartments
  • Yogurt drinks, soups and dressings are best packed in My Family Slidelock bags or our My Family Hot Food Jars

Is My Family Super Bento dishwasher safe?

Yes the My Family Super Bento inner tray is dishwasher safe. Top rack only and remove before the drying cycle. The outer shell is handwash only and should not be fully submerged to avoid liquid pooling in the tray inner top behind the seal (on product without a removable seal. My Family Super Bento can withstand temperatures of 65C/149F, 110 minute cycle. My Family Super Bento is made with ABS (exterior box), Tritan (tray), and silicone (seal). My Family Super Bento is designed with rounded edges and smooth surfaces to make hand washing easy. 

Special Care instructions for the silicone seal: Please be sure to empty contents each day, hand wash with warm soapy water and thoroughly dry your My Family Super Bento before storing. Also, if you live in a damp or humid environment, leave My Family Super Bento ajar, not sealed when storing. If you pack oily foods regularly, coat with a baking soda paste once a week overnight to avoid build-up.

Will my Bento Box stay mould free?

To ensure your Bento Box stays 100% hygenic please adhere to the care instructions. Do not fully submerge your Bento Box in liquid. Hand wash the outer shell only and fully air-dry and between use. Leave the box slightly open when not in use.
