The container and top lid of the MB Sense leakproof metal lunch box are made of 18/8 stainless steel, a resistant, sturdy, but also very light material.

Whether you take it to the office in your MB Pochette or MB Daily lunch bag, or in your backpack while hiking in the heart of nature, this rectangular metal bento box will be as light as a feather! In addition, its intermediate lid is fitted with a silicone seal, and the MB Sense also comes with an elastic band (like its cousins the MB Original and MB Square), making it completely airtight.
Still hesitating? Discover the other advantages of this microwavable metal lunch box below!

What is a good size for a bento box?

Some days, you may crave a fresh and colourful salad, others, you may prefer a hot and comforting dish, like a risotto for example. And there are also days when the chef in you is in the mood for new experiences: you just take out all the ingredients from the fridge and improvise a tasty baked dish that will make your colleagues jealous the next day at the office. Maybe you will also have to lend or exchange your lunch box with a member of your family or friends sometimes. For all these reasons, your lunch box should be able to accommodate all types of dishes. The MB Sense has a total capacity of 700 ml, which makes it easy to pack hearty dishes that will keep you going until the next meal. Its rectangular shape with high edges also makes this leakproof stainless steel bento box airtight and practical for large dishes, and makes them easy to eat.

Can 18 8 stainless steel go in oven?

Here is one of the greatest assets of this stainless steel bento box: the MB Sense is oven safe! Imagine how many dishes you will NOT have to wash: no need to prepare your eggplant lasagna, your potato gratin or your fruit crumbles in a large dish. You can bake your best recipes directly in the MB Sense metal lunch box and place its container in the oven. However, be sure to remove the intermediate lid in PP before putting your MB Sense in the oven! If you live alone, or if you prefer not to have leftovers, or if you are particularly careful about food waste (so are we!), this stainless steel lunch box is made for you: it will allow you to bake the exact quantity you want or need, for you and only for you (you deserve it!).

Can I microwave a metal lunch box?

Another undeniable advantage for the MB Sense: this stainless steel bento box is microwave safe! It may sound confusing after you heard that stainless steel and microwave don't work well together. But our design team has taken up the challenge with flying colours! Thanks to its sleek design and rounded edges, the MB Sense leakproof metal lunch box can be placed in the microwave with complete peace of mind (our quality expert has made dozens of tests to make sure it is perfectly safe!) so that you can reheat your delicious homemade dishes.
Nevertheless, here are a few tips and instructions to follow when using the MB Sense in the microwave:

  • Be sure to remove the stainless steel top lid before placing the MB Sense in the microwave.
  • You can use your MB Sense in the microwave with the PP intermediate lid (it can be useful to avoid making your microwave dirty!), just make sure to open the small silicone cap before reheating your dish.
  • We recommend that you do not exceed 500 W, no more than 3 minutes in the microwave.
  • For an even temperature, feel free to stir food in your stainless steel bento box at half of the selected time.
  • Do not heat 2 containers at the same time, the MB Sense does not like competition in the microwave (it is the only star!)
  • Your MB Sense should never be reheated empty, it should always contain food when placed in the microwave.
  • Do not place sharp or pointed metal objects (for example, if you need to reheat your meal after eating half of it, remember to remove your MB Slim fork before placing the MB Sense back in the microwave!)
  • The MB Sense doesn't really like tight spaces: make sure the product doesn't come into direct contact with the walls of the microwave.
  • Finally, once your meal has been reheated, we recommend that you take your MB Sense out of the microwave using gloves or oven mitts. Its container will cool quickly as you enjoy your hot lunch.
  • During reheating, the MB Sense's intermediate lid may lift slightly. Don't worry, just flip it over the container for 30 seconds so that the heat from food will help it get back to its original shape.
What container should I use for meal prep?

The MB Sense definitely fulfills all our wishes! This microwavable metal lunch box is also compatible with the refrigerator and the freezer, which makes it very practical if you want to try meal prep or if you are a batch cooking fan!
This leakproof stainless steel lunch box will make it easy to organise your meals away from home: the day before, bake your salmon lasagna directly in your metal lunch box. Overnight, place your MB Sense in the refrigerator. The next day, transport it in your MB Daily lunch bag to the office, and place back your leakproof stainless steel bento box in the fridge. When it's time to eat, just reheat your lasagna in the microwave and enjoy your homemade, zero-waste meal!
For those who prefer cold meals, it is also possible with the MB Sense! Want a little tip to keep your bulgur salad cold after taking your MB Sense out of the fridge? Place the MB I-cy ice pack between its intermediate and top lids, and your meal will stay cool for up to 4 hours (depending on the contents and the conditions of use).

Are lunch boxes dishwasher safe?

The icing on the cake for the MB Sense? This leak proof stainless steel lunch box is also dishwasher safe (see, we didn't lie when we said that this metal lunch box would make your daily life easier!) You just have to place the various parts of your stainless steel bento box in the upper rack of your dishwasher and start a gentle cycle. Your microwavable metal lunch box will come out all clean, ready to follow you on new adventures!
If you don't have a dishwasher or prefer to wash your stainless steel lunch box by hand, be sure not to use abrasive cleaners or brushes: prefer a soft sponge and a classic washing-up liquid.
We have a little washing tip to share with you: the silicone seal of the intermediate lid is removable, so you can clean your metal bento box in every corner! Once washed and dry, be sure to reposition the seal in the right place (with the outer lip facing up) to ensure the airtightness of your to-go adventure partner.

What accessories should I use with my MB Sense?

To customise your leak proof metal lunch box or to complete your to-go lunch set, many accessories are compatible with the MB Sense!
As we mentioned earlier, the MB Sense was designed to be used with the monbento ice pack, the MB I-cy. Placed under its top lid, it will keep your meal cool for up to 4 hours (depending on the content and conditions of use).
If you are not using the MB I-cy, you can take advantage of the space under the top lid to store the MB Slim Box. Simply remove the cutlery and the small flexible holder from the protective box and place them lengthwise on the intermediate lid.
To organise your meal inside the MB Sense, you can use the MB Silicase silicone moulds. Small savoury quiche and mini chocolate cake can both be placed in the large stainless steel container without mixing thanks to the 1/3 and 2/3 MB Silicase moulds.
Small sauces, sesame seeds or grated cheese can also take part in your on-the-go meals thanks to the MB Temple sauce containers, available in 3 sizes. Just place yours directly in the stainless steel container of the MB Sense.
And to transport your lunch set, you have several options: the MB Sense can be placed in the MB Pochette lunch bag (available in 2 sizes, M and L) or in the MB Daily insulated cabas bag.
