Not him but there's tons of options. Keyword 'disposable bento' returns a lot.
I saw them on amazon, and i think they're the same ones. I always wondered how durable they were. I was thinking about buying them if they were, awesome to find them here.
OP, are they good?
Get these instead. Cheaper by a few cents and I've been using them since October and only one of them has cracked (a lid) and that's because I set too much crap on top of it. I wouldn't put soup in there, but otherwise they stay tight just fine.
I have the same ones which I got from Amazon.
Pretty easy to find what you're looking for if you just search this sub man.
I use these. https://www.amazon.com/ChefLand-3-Compartment-Microwave-Container-Divided/dp/B00PY032QK/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1483474069&amp;sr=8-6&amp;keywords=safe+food+containers
I got these ones and they are perfect
Curious. Is this assessment limited to only the containers linked in OP?
I've had my eye on these for a couple months now but haven't had the money due to YNAB budgeting (money went more to savings than expendable money).
edit: If either OP or the ones I linked are bad, can you recommend alternatives? :)
If you're interested in containers with compartments, I got these based on the suggestion of another user on this forum.
Only complaint is that the lids are fragile, must be careful when taking them off.
Yep! Microwave all the way.
I get mine from Amazon -- in addition to being microwave-safe, they are also dishwasher safe, very durable, and delightfully stackable :)
Follow the 3-S System. Soup, Salad, Sandwich (or tortilla wrap, your preference).
Essential to this system are these. Sandwiches and Salads are incredibly quick to make. You can make 3 or 4 in 20 minutes, each with different toppings, and put them in the lunch trays.
Soups can take awhile if you chop everything up and simmer them for a long time. However, order yourself one of these and you can make soups effortlessly. Just blanch/boil your vegetables in stock, add seasoning, and blend them up.
You can do this with basically any vegetable(s), and it's really easy to get a large serving of vegetables because you can drink 8-12 oz of soup really easily. I'll warm mine up in a glass in the microwave and just drink it. You'll be really surprised how much less you're craving food with 12 oz's of soup in your stomach.
I also use these, they have a small divider and I chop up a bunch of vegetables and keep them in there to make salads/sandwiches/tortilla wraps. Tortilla wraps are great! Bit of hummus, lettuce, cucumber, tomato, onion, bell pepper, (meats are optional), some italian dressing, and you have yourself an amazing veggie wrap. These make making them incredibly easy.
If you were only going to do one thing, order those lunch trays. You can make an entire weeks worth of lunches in one night. Chicken, rice, vegetable, and put in the trays for a weeks worth of lunches. Might not have the most variety, but it's easy as hell.
I believe the link was to those boxes, but I ended up getting these, looking at the review pictures they do not ahve a logo on the lid :)

And another redditor suggested:
I use these, though I have the 2 compartment ones. They don't leak (Though liquid can move between compartments), and stand up to repeated microwaving and dish washing really well. I've had the current set for a bit over a year.

I've been using these for a bit over a year, now. One has broken in that time. I don't run them through the dishwasher; I hand-wash them but I do use them in the microwave (with the lids).
I bought these. I think they're pretty decent. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00PY032QK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&amp;psc=1
These are my favorites. I also have these. I've used them for about a year and have only had to discard a few (one I dropped and it broke, the others were normal wear and tear).
You can get them from Amazon...

A company called ChefLand. I saw someone on Reddit recommend them and purchased them off of amazon. They're pretty inexpensive and get the job done. They're a bit on the flimsy side, but I have reused them several times already with minimum problems. Here is the link.

I don't do bentos, but I bought some of these and pack leftovers. I put them in the fridge and chill them overnight and take them to work. I don't refrigerate or re-heat and other than sauces breaking everything is fine. I've gotten used to eating room-temp foods.
I learned it from some co-workers/friends who have done this daily for years with no ill effects.
Dinner on the other hand, I don't know if they would make it that long. You may want to stick with something longer lasting than leftovers.
> By the way, how do you plan your "menue" for the week?
I am getting my notes together because next month will go more in depth into planning and execution, but a few pointers. Up front, the planning for the menu happens at home. I'll sit down with a few recipes I want to try, pair them with side dishes, and come up with a grocery list. I also have enough ingredients frozen in the freezer to make some old favorites if I feel like calling an audible.
