Those who prefer to bring a home-cooked meal to work each day would be delighted by the discovery of the Bento Steamer. The time-demanding step that involves heating raw ingredients can be skipped in the mornings and replaced with a quick and convenient cooking job after one's arrival at the office.

This hi-tech lunch box is the brainchild of Vim & Vigor Design, meant to improve the efficiency of food preparation and serve up piping hot and fresh culinary creations. The contraption takes a cylindrical shape with a broad handle on top and contains a three-tier chamber for the separation of rice, meat and vegetables. With water poured into the bottom, the Bento Steamer heats by induction to produce vapor for warming the edibles within. A digital timer allows you to cook on your desktop with your focus fixed on other tasks at hand. Stats for Portable Stovetop Substitutes Trending: Older & Average
