Pack Your Leftovers with Style

The first type of Tiffin boxes were made of stainless steel. This made it easier to clean and the metal keeps the food warmer for a longer time. The great thing about stainless style boxes, though, is that they can be reheated easily without damaging the containers, and they’re better than plastic in that certain sauces like tomato and curry won’t stain metal containers. But the best use of a Tiffin, in my opinion, is to store your restaurant leftovers.
My friends have 2-sets, and keep one in each of their cars. That way, no matter what vehicle they take when dining out, there is always a Tiffin set they can use to haul away their goodies. Less trash from to-go containers is better for the environment, and saves money for all those paper and Styrofoam containers that restaurants must purchase. Various versions of Tiffins are available everywhere – at local kitchen and gift stores, department stores, and online, depending on what style you are looking for. They’re also great for camping and picnicking.
