Using the right container for your Cobb salad or ham and Swiss sandwich will ensure a neat, nonsquished and perfect-temperature meal—and the newest crop of bowls, bags and packs are so gorgeous, you'll actually look forward to packing lunch. BUILT's new Bento Salad Bowl

and apple slices (which just might become your new addiction).
