Thanks to everyone who played along by nominating lunches, voting for your faves, and enjoying all the gorgeousness. Mr. Bento Porn really got taken to the next level of loveliness this month, and I can't wait to see what amazing lunch/art y'all scheme up next....

woot! Congratulations, all!
Now, just because it's not a contest, we don't have to stop pushing the bento envelope, right?!
dreaming of low-pressure high presentation bento lunches all year round..

We could certainly do theme weeks, like in other Flickr groups. A color scheme, or, regional type of food, or even Shapes. Star Week! Yellow Week! Etc! Give everyone a week's notice and then have fun with it if one chooses to participate.

Congrats, winners!

So, will these never-before-seen lunch containers be available for sale to non-contest winners? I looked around the Zojirushi web site a while ago and they were nowhere to be seen. That green one with the matching bag is entirely too awesome for me to not purchase. ;)

Thanks everyone!

I love the idea of themed lunches. Maybe we should discuss this in a new thread?

Congratulations, all you winners! Those lunches really are appealing, both aesthetically and taste bud-ally.

I also like KateFord's idea about theme weeks. I'm sure Mr. Bento Porn poolers would have some very creative lunches.

Yay!!! Both the cute Mini Bento and the ricecooker have arrived. They are absolutely perfect. Thanks again everyone who voted for me.

Mini Bento

The cute mini Bento is very small compared to the Mr. Bento. I've used it once now and managed to get a fair bowl of Bibimbap into it, so it's recommendable for people who like smaller portions or those on a diet.

The ricecooker has arrived!!!

The ricecooker is smashing! I've never seen anything like it, especially since I'm from a patato country. ;-) The white rice I cooked came out perfectly. Again it's rather small, but this is great because so is my kitchen.

I just got my prizes from The Bento Store! I am very excited about them and Mayumi shipped them super fast. She's great.

I ordered the green mini directly from Zojirushi. I had called the replacement parts department to see if I could order sporks. (I couldn't.) I asked the representative if I could order the mini, and he took my order and had one to me in less than a week. They also have a blue version that's slightly bigger than the green one.
