Your no-BS thermos for food can keep your food hot/cold for a long time. Not a lunch box, but an insulated bento container, DaCool Vacuum Bento Jar will interest you if you enjoy soups or stir-fried lunches like it’s freshly cooked.

It’s got 6-layer insulation: the electropolishing (for anti-corrosion), the 304 stainless steel, 12-micron copper coating (excellent with thermal insulation), the outer 304 stainless steel, and the pearlite finish. All these are vital parts of this bento’s super insulation.

With a dual lid vacuum sealing, it retains heat pretty well. The silicon inner lid has a vent for easy opening. It’s also where the foldable spoon sits. The outer screw lid can double as an extra container while eating. Enjoy 2 cups of your most-loved soup anytime, anywhere!

DaCool Vacuum Bento Jar’s wide mouth makes it easy to clean, though it must be hand washed. Plus, the silicone base prevents it from slipping while you eat!

One thing to consider is prepping this insulated bento from DaCool. Let hot water sit inside for 10 minutes before putting your meal to ensure that it stays hot for as long as possible.

The lid is clearly the weak link in this system. Heat will seep out here and cleaning it requires extra drying time for water to evaporate. In this way, DaCool is pretty good but not as good as Thermos’ King Jar. Neither is it as expensive though.

At under $24, you can reliably enjoy warm food using DaCool Vacuum Bento Jar. No microwave is needed at all!
