What you need to know… What you need to know… What you need to know…

New colors and new technology…our SW-K Series Food Jars and SM-ZB48 Mugs offer a better way to bring your lunch to wherever you need to go, as piping hot or refreshingly chilled as you want. They’re easier to use now, too!

Heat and cold retention

Heat and cold retention are better than ever. If you thought you could eat your meal at the same temperature as when you packed it in the morning, wouldn’t that make you excited for lunch?

Therma Lid

The newly designed Therma Lid keeps the hot or cold inside the food jar longer. Enjoy your lunch the way it was meant to be.

Lid Construction

We’ve simplified the lid construction. That means less parts to worry about when cleaning up—a time saver when drying too.

SM-ZB48 Stainless Mugs

Our SM-ZB48 Stainless Mugs make a great matching partner with our Food Jars. Next time you want to bring a hot or cold drink, add this to your lunch set and complete the feast.

What makes you hungry?

Let’s get deeper into rice! Let’s get deeper into rice! Let’s get deeper into rice!

Color is more important to your food than you might think, and its influence is everywhere. The USDA grades our orange juice based on color, to make sure the quality of the concentrated juice that you get from the market has passed their color standard. Many fast food companies rely on certain colors to stimulate our appetite. Color experts believe that red and yellow are the most appealing colors that make us hungry, so they’re the most commonly used colors in corporate logos. It’s been called the “Ketchup and Mustard Theory” after how marketers use these colors to grab our attention. Now you know…

Tomato Sausage Penne

Tomato Sausage Penne

A colorful dish that you can make all in one pot; even the penne cooks right along with the other ingredients. Pack it in your Food Jar and bring a delicious hot lunch.

Rainbow Cake Goodies

Rainbow Cake Goodies

Just looking at these little bites makes you want to pick one up and taste what those colors taste like. What’s great is that they’re colorful both on the inside and out.

Grilled Vegetables

Grilled Vegetables

Take out your grill or griddle and cook up some fresh veggies. The natural color of vegetables and the taste just can’t be beat. It’s healthy eating, and guaranteed to elevate your meal.

It’s only Jello, but it looks so good! See how Bert-san made this easy dessert using his water boiler to save time, from having to boil and measure the hot water.
