This beautiful and classy oval cedar bento box is ideal for a small healthy lunch. It features two levels with one movable food divider (please note that the divider is not fixed to the container and can be moved and used in either compartment). The box is lightweight and can be transported easily as the parts hold together with the elastic provided. Its natural urushi coating -- which is derived from the Asian urushi tree and applied using an time-tested technique -- renders the box water-resistant, acid-resistant and heat-resistant. Urushi is one of the only natural substances that completely seals the wood. Contrary to oiled wood, urushi-lacquered wood will not welcome bacteria into its pores.
