Bento 101

Bento originated in Japan and typically refers to a packed lunch box that consists of a variety of items.

Shapeshifting snacks

What’s better than a delicious lunch? A delicious lunch that looks like your favourite animal, superhero or character. There is a dizzying array of moulds available to help you craft snacks like sandwiches, rice balls, egg, sushi or cake into fun and familiar shapes. You can make hard boiled eggs look like cars, pieces of cake look like pandas, and sushi look like rabbits. Who knew lunch could be so fun?

Cut it out

In addition to bento moulds, you can also add flair to your food by using different cutters. These work in much the same way as cookie cutters, allowing you to give things like vegetables and bread shapes like stars, hearts, bears and flowers. Does your little one turn their head at the sight of green veg? You might see success if that green veg suddenly resembles their favourite animal.

Stick a fork in it

Not keen on eating with your hands? Pick up some bento forks to help you pick up your food! As with all bento accessories, the sky’s the limit when it comes to design options. You can choose from things like dinosaurs, vehicles, rainbows and princesses.

While not the most conventional of cooking utensils, thanks to their fun and functionality, eBay’s bento accessories will soon earn their place in your kitchen cabinets alongside your scoops, mixing bowls and cutting boards.
