Birthday Presents Bento Gear 3 of 3

This is the last post of the 3 birthday bento presents posts.
This bento I got from my sister Melissa. She and her fiance and her daughter gave me an awesome 3 tier Tiffin set with a carrier bag.
A Tiffin is basically the Indian version of a bento box and it means 'to take a little taste of'' it was used primarily for a small meal or snack in midday. This box is great for a 3 course meal or a picnic, and it's perfect for soups (the top unit is the best for liquids), salads, rice or noodle meals, desserts, or snacks for sharing. The sidekick container is perfect for salad dressings.
This is three tiers with latches to keep it tight together. You can take it as only the top tier or the whole three tiers. It also comes with a small covered sidekick container for dressings or small snacks.
  • 3 Tier Stainless Steal
  • The Top unit has a 2 cup capacity
  • The Middle unit has a 2 cup capacity
  • The Bottom unit has a 2 1/2 cup capacity
  • The Sidekick container has a 1/2 cup capacity
 The carrying bag is beautiful too, and is a great addition to the Tiffin Set.
  • Made of Recycled Cotton
  • Helps insulate the 3 Tier Tiffin to keep food warm
  • Has an Adjustable strap
  • Semi-Hidden pocket to hold a utensil set (perfect for chopsticks!)
I am looking forward to using this bento in the Fall! I can't wait to pack soups and stews and other hearty dishes that are difficult to pack in a plastic bento box. And it will be great to pack and bring on a picnic after Apple Picking. I imagine sitting down under a beautiful tree with it's leaves changing colors, while a cool breeze blows and we are eating out freshly picked apples and a hearty stew with some crusty bread. MMM, that's going to be a lot of fun!
Thank you Melissa!
