o Choose air-tight and liquid-tight stainless steel lunch bowls or multi-tiered lock tiffin lunch containers for portable meals that include soups, stews, and sauces. For meals with more than one food item, select something that uses two to 4 levels to keep your meals conveniently divided, such as latch tiffins. Available in many sizes, these tiffin lunch boxes are resilient and watertight.
o Select one that fits your requirements when transferring and reheating foods. There are some that allow you to reheat your meals in the container on the stovetop, in a toaster, or an open flame. However, bear in mind that all steel and metal products are not microwavable.
o Know the cleaning directions for your stainless steel food container made by a high quality can making machine if ease of care is important to you. Other food containers are safe for dishwashing, while some require hand washing. Nevertheless, those spill-proof food containers have rubber or silicone seals that might not be dishwasher safe.
o Pick something sturdy yet elegant. As you will be bringing around your tiffin box at school, work, outdoor camping, and picnics, select a stainless food storage made by a high quality can making machine that is developed to last a long period of time. While resilience is vital, design is also essential. So find something that also includes glossy outside, and cool colors and designs to fit your style sense.
