2 Tier Stainless
Steel Food Carrier
Stainless, stylish & stackable!
2-Tier Stainless Steel Tiffin Set (a nifty lunch box system that hails
from India) is reusable, lightweight, and has a lid that doubles as
a plate. It’s easy to carry and clean, but hard to live without.
Great for both cold or hot food, and the planet, too. Fold
down the handle to make it compact and easy to store. Perfect for work,
school, picnics, or a night out (makes for a stylish doggy bag). There’s
nowhere it won’t go…except to landfill.
One or two? Up to you! Our
new self-latching top container lets you use your tiffin solo for snacks
or smaller meals, or as a dynamic duo! A sweet little sidekick tiffin
comes inside for toting dressings or sauces on the side. Just use soap
and water, or pop it in the dishwasher to clean.

FOOD CARRIER & SIDEKICK
What grade of stainless
steel is your food carrier?
Our stainless is 200, 14/1 grade, a grade specifically made for safe
storage of food stuffs. 300 and 200 are the most popular, with 200 containing
less nickel than 300. Lab tests have shown that our stainless steel
contains no levels of materials harmful to people or the planet.
How big are the food
The 2 tier food carrier is 5 1/2 high fully assembled and 6" in
diameter (6 3/4" D, including latches); the upper unit is 2 1/2"
high and the base unit is 2 3/4" high. The 2 tier food carrier
holds 4 3/4 cups of liquid in each unit. This food carrier easily holds
a sandwhich and salad.
How big are the sidekicks?
The large sidekick is 2" high, 3 1/2 in diameter and holds 1 cup
Is there a coating
on the food carrier or sidekick?
Due to the nature of stainless steel, particularly the kind approved
for food storage, it's not necessary to put a coating on it - that's
why it's such a popular material for kitchen, food and medical use.
Additionally, we only use a grade of stainless that is approved for
the health and safety of our consumers - we are deeply committed to
protecting the Earth and the people who live here!
How do I clean my stainless
steel food carrier and sidekick?
The food carrier is dishwasher safe, or you can wash it with soap and
Can I cook with the
stainless steel food carrier?
The food carrier can be used with heat such as ovens, stove top, toaster
oven, or put over an open flame - which makes it great for camping!
Like all steel and metal products, it is not safe to use in the microwave.
Is the food carrier
and sidekick water/leak proof?
While we do not advertise our food carrier as leak proof, it is water-resistant.
The food carrier successfully carries soups and sauces. As long as the
carrier is not aggressively shaken or flipped upside down, it usually
holds liquids very well. The top unit is recommended for soupier items,
as it is the tighter of the two units. Additionally, the new sidekick
is perfect for carrying sauces, dressings or baby food inside the food
carrier to keep them separate until you’re ready to eat!
Will my food stay hot
or cold in the food carrier?
The tiffin is not insulated, but paired with the cotton carrier bag
(which itself is not insulated) seems to be a good combination for regulating
the temperature of foods to a degree. If you aren’t going to be
using all of the units of the food carrier, we suggest using one of
them to store a cold pack. We cannot in any way guarantee that hot foods
will stay “hot,” so we always recommend that folks heat
it up in a toaster oven or even encourage using the To-Go Ware as a
storage container and transfer it to a bowl to heat up in the microwave
– this is still a preferable option to using leaching, toxic plastic
Where is the stainless
steel food carrier and sidekick manufactured?
The food carriers are made in Mumbai, India by a company that is certified
ISO 9001 (quality assurance) and has a proven track record of protecting
the human rights of their employees. The company they source their stainless
steel from is located in India, is also certified ISO 9001, as well
as ISO 14001 (environmental protections).
Are the cotton carrier
bags made of organic cotton?
No, they are not made of organic cotton, rather they are made of reclaimed
cotton from the communities of Ghaziabad, India. While we love organic
cotton, one of the core values of our mission is to identify creative
ways to utilize the resources already present instead of creating product
from virgin materials, even organic virgin materials. The cotton for
the bags is collected at sites around Ghaziabad, as well as cotton scrap
waste from production in the facility. The process includes: collecting,
spinning, weaving and confectioning wastages and segregating them by
color; they are then garneted to create the fibers, which are further
re-spun to create yarns. These yarns are then used for weaving the fabric
used to make our bags. The factory that makes them are certified ISO
14001, as well as providing labor protections for their employees.
How do I care for my
cotton carrier bag?
The cotton carrier bag can be put in the washing machine, but we do
not recommend that you put it in the dryer, and instead should be air
AND HEALTH FACTS
Are your products Fair
Some of our products are Fair Trade, such as those we have made by WEAVE.
We provide both hand-made and manufactured items, therefore not all
of our products are at present covered by fair trade certification.
Those generally covered are hand-crafted goods and agricultural products
(such as tea, coffee, chocolate, etc.). For our products not covered
under this kind of certification, we work with companies abroad that
conduct regular, surprise audits to ensure that the manufacturers are
doing well by people and the planet.
Why is stainless steel
better than plastic?
Although the process to make stainless steel requires extractive practices,
which overall is not best for the environment, it should be noted that
the intensive extractive process is offset by the fact that stainless
steel, by its very nature, is 100% recyclable. Therefore, given the
lifecycle of our products as compared to plastics and compostables (both
of which are extremely resource intensive to manufacture in relation
to the amount of time they are actually used before being thrown away),
we felt the intensiveness at the manufacturing stage was far outweighed
by the extensive lifecycle and reduced overall environmental impact
of our products. Additionally, because of its hygienic quality, stainless
steel does not require harsh cleaners or a seal or finish applied to
make it safe – adding additional health and environmental benefits
to using stainless for food storage and transport.
