This tiffin is very well made and perfect for transporting lunch or dinner to work/school, as well as using as a take-out container when dining out. I wish I had gotten the carrier along with it, but imagine I can fashion one myself out of fabric remnants if necessary.
I purchased this Tiffin for my husband's lunches. It replaced the glass snap lid containers that where weighing down his insulated bag. The 3-tier design saves space and fits perfectly. We both love it; those he gets looks from his co-workers. Hopefully it holds together.
This works wonderfully, doesn't leak and is a great size.
I got one of these for me and one for my husband to carry our lunches to work. People stop us all the time and ask us where we got them! (Perhaps I should get a commission...) They are made well, they are sturdy, they look cool, they hold the perfect amount of food, and you can even cook up your leftovers on the stovetop. I am pregnant, so I'm constantly eating, and the three tiers hold enough food of different variety to keep me satisfied throughout the work day. I have also been thinking of buying two extra sets in case we don't keep up with doing the dishes. ;) Great product. Worth the price.
I love my 3 tier stainless steel food carrier! It is the perfect size for meal portions and easy to carry and clean; not to mention environmentally friendly.
This is one of the best purchases that I have made!! We love this container! My son takes it to preschool with him for his breakfast and everyone comments on how nice it is!! I am ordering a second one to use for my daughter and one to give to my son's preschool teacher! Great product!!
I bought this along with the bamboo silverwear and I am able to clip it all to my backpack (along with my Sigg)! Being a student I see all of the waste in my school (even though they are slowly making progress to being a more eco friendly place to be- we now compost all food at 1 campus [of 3]!) and feel better knowing that I'm not using a FEW plastic forks and a FEW sets of chopsticks every day! The tiffin is great and I love the little container that comes with it- I usually put water in it and freeze it together and put yogurt in it for a morning snack :). This site is the best and most affordable I've found (and I'm one of those people that hunts! I looked at 4,000 backpacks before I decided on the one I got!) Congrats ResuableBags- you have earned my business! I can't wait for my next order!
Oh boy do I love this tiffin! I use it frequently when I meet people for tea at the local coffeeshop because I always bring my own food and drink. It is durable, lightweight and easy to clean. The lid is snug and I find that most often I only need the top layer for me. I fill the other layers when the family is going to a picnic, fireworks, road trip, etc. I have two sets of these and two of the older two layer as well and still use them often. The bags are super too!
Love it!! I use it everday and everyone who sees it asks where I got it. I have two sets and make up two days lunch ahead. They are in the fridge and ready to grab on my way out the door. I traveled through airline security and put it the the tray thinking there might be a problem. the airline security screener said they looked like a great idea and didn't ask me to open them up, just asked if they contained liquid. I intend to buy sets for my adult children and their spouses. I've used them when I have traveled to visit them, and they loved them too. I am gluten and sugar free so I always carry my own food. I love, love, love my TO GO WARE!!!
Love it. Recommend to everyone here at work. Best thing to get and saves money other then using bags and helps witht eh diet also.
I've enjoyed this carrier a lot. I can easily fit a sandwich in one carrier, a salad in another, and a small snackbar and an apple cut in half in the bottom. I have brought soups and stews (in the top container) with no leaks throughout my short walk and bus ride to work, though I bought the carrier bag so that it would easily be kept upright. I like the little tin that comes with it, but it takes up a lot of room, and it is just as deep as the carriers and I can only fit it into the top one because of its lid. Other reviews have talked about it being difficult to close, but I haven't really experienced that with mine, though there is enough resistance so that it closes snugly. I have found that it is easier to close the longer latches at the same time: closing one and then the other makes for a difficult time with the second latch.
I really like this for all the usual reasons doesn't absorb odors like plastic 2. can be put in the dishwasher with out it breaking down after multiple uses but I do miss the extra plate that was in the original one I had purchased years ago I don't like the fact that there is no separation between the tiers food touches the bottom of the one on top. Also I never understood why each layer is not attached to the one above it so that you can build up as many layers as you need but that is trivial. I love this product so much I have given them as gifts to my family.:)
My teenage and adult kids love these! They r light, clip to their backpack, and they think they r really cool! They wash beautifully spotless in the dishwasher and don't retain odors. Perfect for kids, but too small for my teens and adults. U can barely fit a small sandwich in if u squoosh the corners and the large bread or a sub sandwhich will not fit. Fitting the rest is like a puzzle too-it's too small for adults. The two teir is a better size but I wish it had three tiers. All in all I'm very happy tho. What an improvement over smashed sandwiches and bananas in that lunch bag that tears!
I have had this for nearly a year and use it frequently. It now has a small crack above the latch on the top section but this does not seem to affect the function at all.Though others have written about difficulty with the longer latches I find I just need to put one hand on the top as I latch it. It is great for carrying out leftovers from restaurants,and will definitely cause conversation! It would be nice if each section latched separately,so that you could take two sections at a time. But it is a very good size as it is. The top is good for a snack and all three sections for a meal. The mini container fits within the top section and is great for dip.Veggies etc. fit nicely around it.
I have two of these that I have been using for about a month. Overall I really like this product and the size of it. It has been perfect for bringing veggies and fruit to work with me. The two-tiered size seemed too large wide and end up having lots of wasted space. In the 3-tiered style I end up getting the right amount of veggies in each. It is also a good size for about a cup of rice so I can easily do rice and a topping and have the 3rd container for dessert I highly recommend getting a carrying bag with it because it makes it just that much easier to throw over your shoulder and bring into work. The only reason this doesn't get 5 stars is that it can be a bit difficult to clip the containers together.
I love this container! I get my breakfast, lunch, and two snacks in it with plenty of room for more. The lid does fit on rather snugly, but I prefer that to one that falls off and spills my lunch! I plan to buy the carry bag too.
I've used my 3 tier carrier for at least a year now and love it in almost every way except.... Over time a stress crack has formed on the middle carrier that has gradually opened up to a half inch tear in the somewhat thin stainless. Can still use it for dry food however but not sure for how much longer since the clamping action puts quite a bit of force on the area. I would have rated it a five minus this defect but can't in all fairness give it more then a 3 now. I expected more. Will look for a similarly designed product but with beefier metal. Even the larger sized model is showing evidence of the same thing happening.
I bought this for my husband, and he really liked it. It was very convenient, and worked great at keeping everything separated and protected. Unfortunately, after about 2 months of use, the top two canisters developed splits in them and began to leak. It was because the clamps put too much pressure on the canisters and caused them to slightly crush. This led to the canisters leaking. We were very sad to no longer be able to use this carrier. It was awesome while it lasted, though.
I think this is a great idea and really wanted to like this product, but ended up sending it back. It is very hard to open the top compartment. It is also hard to line up all the pieces and snap down the long clip on the side. It actually hurt my fingers to apply so much pressure to try to get the long clip to seal. I never used it with food because I practiced with it several times and was afraid I would end up spilling my food trying to open and close. Very awkward with the clips.
