Review: Happy Tiffin Bento Boxes (bears onigiri, car bento and a snack bento) #446

Happy Tiffin generously sent me two of their stainless steel bento boxes to review. When I was given the chance to choose which one I preferred, I chose the 'Road Hog' and they pleasantly surprised me with an additional bento box, 'Happy Home'.

Tiffin, a term popular mostly in India, refers generally to a lunch or small meal in a container intended for transport. Having grown up in a country of great cultural diversity, I remember my mother using the multi-tier version when going to visit friends or relatives and my grandmother using them to cater dinners for neighborhood families.
Now on to the review!

The 'Road Hog' or car shaped container is totally adorable! Made of stainless steel, it is durable, easy to clean, and shines. Of course its designed to do more than look nice, so it is also a convenient container 6.5 inches long, 4.5 inches wide and 2 inches deep. Inside there is the 'spare tire' a cylindrical container with its own lid, perfect for those foods you want to keep separate from the rest.

The 'Happy Home' is 4.7 inches wide, 7 inches high and is also 2 inches deep, and every bit of it is simply adorable. Like the 'Road Hog' it also has a separate interior container and latches to secure the top. Both are dishwasher safe.

Things that we like:
- They are very cute!
- Stainless steel will not retain stains, odors or residues.
- Stainless steel will last for a long time with proper care.
- Dishwasher safe.
- Lead free, plastic free, BPA free, phthalate free and waste free.   

 Things to consider:
- The latches are quite secure, but could take a little practice. Our eight year old son experienced some difficulty opening it.
- Not for use in microwave.
