I'm seriously considering ordering a Mr. Bento! The photos in this group is making me want one badly!!!! That said, could someone tell me the correct dimensions for Mr. Bento? The one I found on Amazon doesn't show the dimensions. Other sites I've found state the dimensions as 5.5 in. W x 4.4 in. D x 6.5 in H. Could someone confirm this? Is it only 6.5 in. tall (with the lid on)? Seems taller in some pics.

If someone could reply, I'd be so happy!!! Thank you!

Using a ruler, I found my Mr. Bento is about 8.5 inches tall with the lid on and about 4.75 inches in diameter (outside). My rice bowl (with the lid) is about 2 inches tall, the rice bowl is 2.75 inches tall, the bigger side bowl is about 1-5/8 inches tall. All of those bowls are about 4.5 inches wide. The smaller side bowl is about 1.5 inches tall and about 4 inches in diameter.

I used a cheap wooden school ruler, so my measurements aren't exact, but they are close.

OOPS! I meant to say the soup bowl is about 2 inches tall. The rice bowl is 2.75 tall. I got the side bowls named correctly! Sorry about that!

Can anyone kindly give me the measurements of the bowls for the Classic Bento (the ultra black one currently available on Amazon), and the Ms. Bento (gray one with 3 tiers)? I'm considering buying a lunch jar but I'd like to be able to put my own small containers into it... answers are much appreciated!
