Stainless Steel Bento Boxes -- Do they even exist?

Hi. I've got a Ms. Bento and DH has a Mr. Bento. They're great except that I'd prefer stainless steel to plastic. Does anybody have information as to where I can find something like that? I'm looking for something like a tiffin wallah except that it would be insulated. Any help would be appreciated.

  1. Pearl River has several stainless steel options. The three compartment style looks a lot like a dabba. Hope this helps.

      It's not exactly I was looking for as I'm ideally looking for a three compartment style that goes inside an insulated container. But I may be able to fashion one up by buying the round individual stainless steel lunch boxes and putting them in my Mr. and Ms. Bento. Thanks so much. As I live near Pearl River, I'll check it out this week.

    2. Zojirushi makes a stainless steel insulated bento box, which look a little like a thermos from the outside.

      You might also look at indian tiffin boxes, which are nearly always stainless steel. I haven't seen insulated ones, but I haven't been looking. Tiffin boxes look like this:
