Does anyone know what the containers are made of? Is it ceramic or a type of plastic?

Thanks!!

The entire Mr. Bento is a type of plastic, with the exception of some metal on the larger outside canister.

Hmm thanks. I'm just trying to figure out the safest option for heating food that I bring to work and am a bit paranoid of that whole toxic plastic thing! I will do some research and find out what kind of plastic is used in Mr. Bento.

You could always turn the food out to a regular ceramic plate or bowl and just leave them at work.

Hey, if you turn up any info on the plastic used in Mr. Bento, let us know! I'm also interested in the toxic plastic /microwave thing and have been putting off buying my bf and I our Mr. Bento's because of it.
