GEL-COOL

GEL-COOL is produced in Hokkaido, the northernmost island of Japan.

Japan has four beautiful seasons, but summer in Japan is extremely harsh with high temperature and humidity. While experiencing such hot and humid weather, GEL-COOL was born from the mother’s thought, "I want children to eat bento without worrying about food poisoning even in the summer."

The idea came into shape with "GEL-COOL," which is a combination of a cooling gel pad and a lid.

You will just need to put the lid a night before and that’s it. You will pack your bento as usual but keep it safe from food poisoning. Cooling function will normally last for 4 hours.

Due to the recent climate changes, we are facing longer and hotter summer year by year. These functional bento boxes will not only eliminate the use of one time use plastic box but keep your food safe and fresh from the hot weather.

GEL-COOL square series is their best seller and has been sold for more than 10 years. Simple design and various color selection are the reasons the bento box is loved by lots of people. It won a good design award in 2006. They keep innovating and developing their products with new designs, materials and collaborations.

Bring bento boxes to your school, work or even for weekend picnic!

Their bento boxes are BPA free.
