Product Inspirations – Stainless Steel Food Jars (SW-EAE35/50 and SW-FCE75)

We are so excited to feature our Stainless Steel Food Jars (SW-EAE35/50 and SW-FCE75) this month!

They come packed with practical features and in fantastic new colors!

The food jars provide a convenient, versatile way to enjoy fresh foods on the go, wherever you are, especially when you need to take foods to a location where a refrigerator or microwave may not be readily available. They come in three different sizes, with the SW-EAE model available in 12 and 17 ounce capacities, and the SW-FCE model in a larger 25 ounce capacity.

Each food jar uses Zojirushi’s superior vacuum insulation technology, which keeps hot contents hot, or cold contents cold, for hours. By removing the air between the outer and inner layers of the stainless steel, heat is blocked from transferring through it, greatly minimizing the temperature change of your food or beverage. Dimples on the lid make it easier to grab and open the jar, and the tight-fitted lid with gasket seals to minimize leaks and maximize heat retention.

Like Zojirushi’s other vacuum insulated products, these food jars are made of durable and sanitary 18/8 stainless steel and BPA-free plastic. The interiors utilize an electro-polished SlickSteel® finish that resists corrosion and repels stains, and the large 2 ½ to 2 ¾ inch openings makes it easy to fill and clean, as well as allowing for eating directly out of the jar.

Both the SW-EAE and SW-FCE models come in gorgeous colors, including Stainless, Aqua Blue, Shiny Pink, Cream and Dark Brown.

Adventurous Couscous Medley

The range of foods that you can pack and store in these food jars is phenomenal. If you’re craving soups, then these food jars are ideal for keeping your soup hot. Try a classic Chicken Noodle Soup or a Rich and Creamy Irish Potato Soup for lunch one day. If you’re in the mood for breakfast, try Steel Cut Oatmeal To-Go in Your Food Jar or a savory Japanese style Thick and Hearty Veggie Porridge. And if you’d like a complete, filling meal, try our recipe for an Adventurous Couscous Medley. The coolest thing about these food jars is that you can even fill them with dessert and salad. Our Stacked Pasta Salad is amazing and our Red Cranberry Gelatin with Mixed Berries is the best!

There are so many uses for these food jars, and the various sizes make it perfect for individual portions and ones large enough to share. Try them out and tell us your favorite foods!

Product Inspirations – Stainless Steel Food Jar (SW-GCE36)

Our Stainless Steel Food Jar (SW-GCE36) is a great way to pack a fresh meal that you can take with, wherever you go!

It comes in a 12 ounce capacity and two gorgeous colors–Nut Brown and Cherry Red. The modern design is both functional and beautiful, and takes up minimal space while maximizing capacity.

This food jar is made using our superior double-walled vacuum insulation technology, where the air between the outer and inner layers of stainless steel is removed, so that heat is prevented from passing through. Your food stays at an optimal temperature, hot or cold, until it’s time to eat.

Foods stay fresh in the Stainless Steel Food Jar. The interior is made with sanitary electro-polished SlickSteel® stainless steel, which resists odors and corrosion. And the food jar is easy to fill with a 3 ¼ inch wide opening, and a flat interior that makes it ideal to eat and drink from. This food jar also has a unique removable plastic mouth ring which fits around the rim of the jar for comfort. The food jar and the lid are both easy to clean, and the lid completely disassembles, making it even easier.

We love this food jar for its great features… but mostly for the kinds of foods you can eat from it! Traditional classics like Bean Medley Soup and Total Tonjiru Soup are easily eaten from the food jar. A Stacked Pasta Salad works beautifully in the food jar, easily layered with lots of fresh veggies, pasta and dressing. Bring a snack or dessert, like Red Cranberry Gelatin with Mixed Berries. Even breakfast is easy to make in our food jar! You can make Steel Cut Oatmeal To-Go in the jar with this recipe:

  1. Preheat the food jar by pouring boiling water in it so that it is thoroughly warmed. Keep the water in there for 5 minutes and discard after the jar is preheated.*
  2. Place ¼ cup steel-cut oats and 2/3 cups boiling water into the jar.
  3. Close the lid tightly and shake gently.
  4. Let the oatmeal sit for an hour, and then shake the jar again. Let sit for another hour.
  5. When the oatmeal is ready, carefully open the jar and add sugar and fruit to taste. (May we recommend bananas and chocolate chips, or strawberries and honey?)

* Wasn’t that a great tip? You can preheat and precool the food jars so they keep food as close to the original temperature even more efficiently!

No matter what you bring in your food jar, it’s sure to be fresh and delicious! Find out more about this food jar on our website and as always, tell us about your favorite food jar recipe!

Zojirushi Ms. Bento® Stainless Lunch Jar (SL-MEE07)

slmee

September means back to school, college and work! Our Ms. Bento® Stainless Lunch Jar keeps you organized with a convenient way to take fresh and wholesome food with you, wherever you go.

The Ms. Bento® is a complete package, containing a washable, stainless steel outer jar, two microwaveable inner bowls, chopsticks, chopsticks holder and an easy-to-carry bag.

The durable outer container is made using Zojirushi’s superior vacuum insulation technology, which creates lasting insulation by removing the air between two layers of stainless steel walls. This keeps food hot or cold for hours.

The two inner bowls are perfect for a variety of foods. The main bowl has a 10 oz. capacity, good for holding rice, meat, vegetables, pasta or noodles. The main bowl’s insulated lid locks into place and helps to retain the temperature of the food inside the bowl, as well as prevent heat or cold from transferring from the side bowl, which sits above the main bowl and keeps foods at room temperature. The side bowl has an 11 oz. capacity, and holds foods such as salads, vegetables, fruit and desserts. Both bowls are locked into place with the outer lid.

Like all of our products, the inner bowls, outer container, lids and chopsticks are all easy to clean with soap and warm water.

The Ms. Bento® Stainless Lunch Jar comes in Aqua Blue and fits into the matching tote bag. It’s one of our best-selling products and we know you’ll love its practical and stylish convenience.

As always, we would love to hear from you, so be sure to leave a comment below.

Our Newest Food Jar – Great for Lunch this Fall!

 

SW-HAE (New)

 

Our new Stainless Steel Food Jar SW-HAE55 comes in beautiful steel and rich metallic red finishes, and has the classic Zojirushi 2.5 inch wide mouth, which makes it easy to add food and eat directly from the jar. The SlickSteel® interior finish, electro-polished to a smooth surface, is free of BPA, and is easy to clean and repels foreign substances and stains. Best of all, Zojirushi’s vacuum insulated technology—where the air within the insulation enclosure is ‘vacuumed’ out, minimizing heat convection—keeps foods and liquids hot or cold for hours. The lid has a unique feature that lets you screw off the stopper lid and release pressure, so there’s no need to wrestle with a jar of hot food when you’re trying to open it.

While we’re very excited about the features of our new food jar, we think our customers say it best. Check out these reviews of some of our other stainless steel food jars posted on Amazon.com:

Love this food jar. Exactly like the reviews I read from online. Every morning, I put organic rolled oat and chia seeds in it and add boiling water. I have some commute so when I arrive at work the oatmeal is fully cooked and still burning hot! This product seriously saves my weekday mornings.” ~ by Nicole on 6/19/15

“…This is a long term and wise investment. No plastic container to dispose. No harmful and toxic chemicals that goes into the food – only freshly cooked food wherever you go!” ~ by Bluetooth on 4/4/15

“We use two of these about twice a week for our kids’ lunches. I warm up leftover spaghetti or chicken noodle soup or beans & weanies in a dinner bowl, then scoop the food into these jars, and it stays warm from 6:30 AM to noon. My kindergartener and 2nd grader can handle opening and closing the jars. I have used these for myself too, and it has enough room for the volume of food I eat (average woman). They have held up well for 5 months so far. […] They have not leaked yet, which makes it worth the high price of these in my opinion. We also have a Kid’s thermos version much like these, but these (Zojirushi) are taller, hold more volume, keep food warmer longer, and have a more grown-up appearance, so I like them better. I have travel tea container by the same maker, and it also never leaks.” ~ by JH on 11/23/14

“Got this for my 11-yr old daughter to take hot meals to school. We’ve had it for 3-4 months and used it quite a bit. It does a great job of keeping her noodles or soup warm until lunchtime and is just the right size. We had a small Stanley thermos container that we’d gotten for the same purpose, but it was bulkier and heavier, and was a total dud at keeping the contents warm. There is really no comparison, the Zojirushi is MUCH better.” ~ by Liz and Tom Craffordon on 1/27/15

We hope that you try out this new 19 ounce size stainless steel food jar, and that your own review is as glowing as the ones from our other customers.
