I do not use or advocate the use of a feed box for routine feeding. I use one little container, not by my choice, but snakes choice, little girl refuses to eat anywhere but crammed into a tiny space I've never seen any evidence (as once upon a time I did use them long ago) that they had any effect on a snakes behaviour, other than you were more likely to get bitten by removing your snake since some stay in "feed mode" for quite some time after (not to mention the scent of rodent in the air), and it obviously is more stressful for the snake being moved from A to B to A. I think they are useless in that respect. They do have a place, such as for animals that are housed together, or for animals that need a tight-fitting place to eat.
