Thermos Noodle Container (
The Thermos Noodle Container (JEC-1000) is a lunch box that consists of a 360 ml soup jar that can be kept warm or cold, a container that can hold one serving of noodles (approximately 200 g) at room temperature, and an inner container for toppings and side dishes, all carried in a special insulated pouch. By pouring the dipping sauce in the soup jar over the noodles just before eating, both hot and cold noodles can be enjoyed outside. The heat and cold retention capacity is 6 hours.
The narrower bore diameter than a regular soup jar keeps the temperature of the dipping sauce higher, achieving a temperature that feels warm and tasty even when the noodles and dipping sauce are combined. The uneven surface of the container body was designed to prevent slipping and to allow the user to hold it firmly. The container is also designed to be comfortable to eat, with no screws touching the mouth of the container.
The product is available in beige and navy. The estimated price is 9,900 yen each (tax included). The main unit measures approximately 18 cm (width) x 11 cm (depth) x 15 cm (height) and weighs 0.5 kg.
