I am looking at getting a Bento classic instead of the regular Mr. Bento... but I can't make up my mind!

Plus side of Mr. Bento:
+ extra bowl for extra snacks/condiments

Plus side of Bento Classic
+ my love of tomato soup won't stain my bento...
+ comes with chopsticks AND spork

It seems Bento Classic may be best, since I can take along snacks in a seperate small container....

Does anyone have both? What do you think?

I have both. I prefer the Bento Classic ... less variety, but the same volume of food. I like that it has a strap, and the darker containers are awesome!

If the top of the Classic plastic or metal?

It looks to be stainless steel, like the container, but it's black, not silver.

Actually, it's plastic ... very similar to Mr. Bento's lid.

Thanks Ariel, that was a deal breaker for me. I will stick with my Mr. :)

Does the lid effect heat retention at all? I have a microwave at work, so it doesn't matter all that much... just if I wanted to take my bento elsewhere.

The bento classic does have a sealed soup/liquids bowl, doesn't it?

The lid doesn't effect heat any more than it does on the Mr. Bento. And yes, it still has a sealed liquids bowl.
