Product Review Policy

From time to time, you may see a review of a bento related product, service or book on this site. Unless specifically stated otherwise, all reviewed items have been purchased, and not received for free. Any review of a product that has been sent to us is clearly labeled as such. We also give away all such review items in reader giveaways, or offer them as contest prizes.

A problem has cropped up in the last couple of days with login on Just Hungry and Just Bento. Previously, you were able to log into either site, and you'd be logged in on the other. This is not working as it should at the moment.

The workaround for now is to log in separately to either site. If you have a problem logging in, please let me know (via the contact form for the offending site) and I'll try to fix it manually. Sorry for the inconvenience!
