If your lifestyle involves a lot of travelling, you’ll probably tire of eating from the chip-and-sausage van or at the eatery round the corner. A packed – hot or cold – meal could be the answer. And the right container makes it all possible. Zielonka Leben & Wohnen offers the “Bento” containers from the Aladdin brand which tick all the boxes. The round “Bento” lunch box holds 0.6 litres. Double-walled with foam insulation a Bento keeps food hot for up to five hours. You can add a 0.35-litre Bento container, capable of keeping food hot or cold for up to four hours, to make a complete lunch set.

The boxes have leakproof lids with a handle and a sealing lip. They’re microwave safe, but shouldn’t go in the dishwasher because the insulation might be damaged. The boxes come in a choice of five attractive colours: white, green, blue, green and mauve. There’s a special connector to keep the two containers together. Bento combines high quality with brilliant design – it won a prestigious red dot design award in 2011.

Passionate tea drinkers will enjoy having their favourite drink on hand wherever they go – at work, in the car or train, in the garden, on outings. It’s easy with the “Tea to go” mug from Aladdin. It brews loose tea, teabags or coarsely ground coffee just the way you want it. And then the double-walled, BPA-free, foodsafe container keeps the beverage hot for up to two hours.

It’s easy to use, you simply put the tea or coffee in the sieve and fill the mug with hot water, lower the sieve into the water and raise it again when the beverage is to your liking. You can drink from the spout or tip the lid back to drink in the ordinary way. A Tea to go infuser holds a good 0.35 litres; it’s made of foodsafe plastic which is also dishwasher and microwave safe.
