Review: Trudeau Fuel Bento Lunch Box

My first ever review on this site featured a Trudeau Fuel Everest sandwich box. Last year they contacted me to inform me that a new product was to be available sometime this year, and I was very excited to receive it in July and put it to use.
Trudeau Corp is a leading supplier of quality kitchenware and tabletop accessories in North America.

Their new Bento Lunch Box has two inner compartments each with its own lid. The one on the right side is internally divided into three sections to keep foods separate.

Things that we like:
- Without the lids, the inside containers are microwave safe, which is nice for me as sometimes a hot lunch is just the thing for a rainy day.
- It is BPA free and dishwasher safe, though they recommend hand washing to extend its life.

Something to consider:
- With more than 1300 ml total capacity, it is a large size container, and if you are going to carry it in a cooler bag, you may need a larger than standard ones.



Here is a bento lunch I made for Nikolai.

In this bento:
  • On left: Pumpernickel sandwich with bunny cut-out and mild cheddar face along with Mozzarella cheese stick
  • On the top right: Papaya pieces and seedless green grapes.
  • Broccoli florets and grape tomatoes.
  • Rocket ship cheddar chese crackers from Trader Joe's
Here are the sections with their lids.


And here they are assembled into the Bento Lunch Box.


Here are the supplies or similar that I used to make this lunch.


Disclosure: Trudeau Corp generously provided me with the items for review without cost to me. Other than receiving the items, I have not received any compensation to write this review.

  6. Do you have the actual measurements of the bento box? Very interested in getting some for the kiddos. Just want to know how big they are? Thanks

  7. When you say spill proof, could you put applesauce in one zone, cut strawberries in another, and broccoli in the third - would it seep all between these 3 zones?

    1. It would still remain in the compartments and the foods still remain separated at lunch time.
