Because the wood is still dry at first, please wipe the inside of lunch box with wet cloth before packing rice. It prevents the rice from sticking inside.

It is NOT dishwasher safe. Please wash with hot water using sponge, and rinse it well again with hot water. Wipe well after washing, and dry them with RIM SIDE UP.

Do not use powder cleanser, bleach and other harsh chemical detergents.

You might feel the wood scent strong at first, but it will fade away as you use.

Rice might turn yellowish at first, but it is caused by the natural wood's color so it is not harmful.
