Does anybody know how long food could sit in a bento without refrigeration? I am considering taking bentos to school instead of Mr Bento but I don't eat for about 2.5 hours till after I get on campus and I'm wondering if it'll spoil in that time.

I've let mine sit all day before, heh. When made on days I don't have school they may sit from noon til' whenever I get hungry(3-6 hours?) and on school days it'll be about 2-3 hours. I guess it's all a matter of how tight the box is, or what's in it. Like I've packed ramen before and it's awful cold so not too good in a bento versus other noodles like soba and udon which taste pretty good regardless of temp. Though I'm sure if you wanted really hot food a microwave friendly bento box would work, if you have access to a microwave of course. Not sure if any of that helped at all, heh.
