Preparing school lunches: Zojirushi SL-XCE20HG Stainless Steel Vacuum Insulated Tiffin Box

Posted by on November 12, 2013 at 1:00 am.

After additional research, I decided to purchase the Zojirushi SL-XCE20HG Stainless Steel Vacuum Insulated Tiffin Box. It cost me $62.59.

Instead of one spill proof container, that is available in the Zojirushi Mr. Bento Stainless Steel Lunch Jar, it offers three! Which makes it perfect for including delicious chowder, soup, egg rolls, rice, bean dishes and a whole host of other delicious hot foods that can be included into my daughters Zojirushi bento lunch box without me having to worry about spills.

The Stainless Steel Vacuum Insulated Tiffin Box is perfect for holding hot or cold meals, especially suited for places where refrigerators and microwaves may not be available. The outer body is constructed out of durable stainless steel and has excellent heat retention. 4 Non-microwaveable inner bowls including 3 soup bowls are ideal for holding curry and other soups. All containers are BPA free. Also includes an easy to carry tote bag.

Unlike the Zojirushi Lunch Jar the containers included with the Zojirushi Tiffin Box are not microwaveable and I’m fine with that. My daughter can’t use the microwave at school and we rarely use it at home.

A few of the people that wrote negative reviews about the Zojirushi Mr. Bento Stainless Steel Lunch Jar (the one I was going to originally purchase) complained that some of the jars leaked so they weren’t spill proof. The description states only one container is spill proof, so clearly they did not read the info before packing some of those containers. As I already mentioned, that’s why I decided to upgrade to the Zojirushi Tiffin Box since it has three spill proof containers.

The above pictures is the Zojirushi  Stainless Steel Vacuum Insulated Tiffin Box. I showed my daughter the above picture and the YouTube demo I’d shared in my last post and she’s really excited about receiving hot home cooked meals when she’s away at school. As she told me, it’ll make her school days a little bit more special since she receives a delicious and nutritious meal at school.

If you think about it, these are perfect for those working outside the home also. If you eat out a lot when you’re at work, something like a Zojirushi bento box will pay for itself very quickly. And it would be a much better option, for me anyway, than purchasing food when I could simply bring in delicious and healthy leftovers from home. I work out of the home, but all my meals are inside the home, so there’s no need for me to purchase this for myself.

I’ll be sure to ask my daughter what she thinks of her zojirushi bento box and perhaps she’ll write a review here on Celebrate Life. Based on the reviews that I’ve read this will last my daughter for several years.
