Hey, I was curious, what is the best way you've come up with to fill those sauce containers? I just purchased them, and I was wondering. : P

I usually hold the sauce bottle up right and very slowly pour the sauce/dressing in that way. If the dressing/sauce is too think then I'll put it in a small bowl and suck it up into the bottle, extracting as much air as possible every time I go to suck more in. They're quite easy to fill honestly though.

Yeah, since I started this hobby, I wanted a few of those sauce bottles. Now that I finally got them I was like "Which is the best way to fill this without being it being wasteful or messy?" I figured doing 'nozzle to nozzle' was probably the best way. I'm just worried about bigger holes like ketchup bottles and bulldog sauce bottles : ).

Thanks! <3

If you go slowly that way it usually goes quite well, you can always put a small bowl down under you and then whatever falls you can put back into the bottles. That what I do if it's a really thick dressing. I'm going to look for sauce containers as well for dressings. That way it's easier to fill the sauce bottles with things like soy sauce and fill the containers with dressings like ranch.

Yes, seems like a good plan. I have this adorable piece of tupperwear [the diameter similar to a half dollar [US]] and will hold about a tablespoon maybe two of a viscous dressing. My grandmother gave it to me, and said she got it sometime in the 60s, knowing that I'd want it for bento making purposes.









I was born in 1987. : P

That sounds perfect! I'm looking for some online. I found some that I really like, I just have to wait now since I just bought a new bento box, and two sets of silicone cups (round and rounded rectangular). I also want to get some silicone dividers.



I was born in 1990, you're not that much older than me >w<
