and new to Flickr!!

I just received my Mr. Bento last week and stumbled upon this group while looking up recipes. Your lunches look so fantastic; I am a little worried about posting - but I'll get over it.

Two quick questions - Can you just refrigerate your Mr. Bento to get the proper chill and can you use the lid as a dish?

Thanks and I'll try and force myself to post my first bento efforts today.

I am also new to Mr. Bento and this group. The past week I have used Mr. Bento and absolutely love it!

I usually pack my lunch the night before and store the inner containers in the fridge. The next morning I pack everything into Mr. Bento and the tote then stick everything inside the fridge at work. (I reheat my food in the microwave at lunch). One of my co-workers commented on and was impressed how cold the container was when I pulled it out of the fridge.

I don't see why you could't use the lids as a dish or plate. Just don't microwave the lids. You may have to clean the lids better because food can get stuck in the grooves.

Can't wait to see more delicious Mr. Bento Pictures!
