This type of stacking container is actually called a tiffen, though those are traditionally made of metal and are watertight.
For green salad or other foods that are not nutritionally dense this might work, but you will still have a lot of empty space and food will slide around inside. It would hold a nice salad and sandwich lunch for two, and being made of melamine, it is not safe to use in the microwave.
The gaps between the individual dishes are more pronounced than you'd expect from the pictures. It will not hold water or even a thick chili.
Even though I have the above complaints you'll probably notice I gave it 4 stars. It's very nicely made. Sturdy, stylish and unusual it has attracted attention everywhere. The metal carrier is functional and the whole thing latches together securely but is still easy to open and close. The individual sections placed out on the table are very nice looking too. The top layer is divided into three sections and it's a little shallower than the two other layers.
I bought one in this color, one in the white/blue/grey and two of the smaller round ones labeled for children. For my own lunches the round ones are going to see a lot of use. At 977ml, they would be the perfect size for a man's lunch if packed full, and about right for a woman's if the layers are filled about 2/3 full.
The two larger square ones will probably be reserved for picnic duty, or to bring mixed cold foods to a party or potluck. For this task I would assume the still larger oval ones would be even better.Read more ›
Specifics: It has three compartments which can be latched together with the metal closure on top. The compartments are interchangeable; if you want the red on top, pink in the middle, etc. The orange and red compartments are the same size with no dividers. The smaller pink compartment is divided into three sections, 2 small squares on one side, and one rectangle on the other side. Unless you are eating sumo porportions, this lunch kit is probably too big for most (the company does make a smaller round version, which is probably good enough for most adults). I usually pack breakfast, lunch, and snacks for the entire day. Since the top of the container has a slightly convex construction, I've found that if I move one of squares from the bottom to the top, I can fit a mini water bottle into it. Regular capri sun or juice boxes can fit with ease into any compartment. Since I cannot microwave the container, and it is not water tight, I've found that I can still pack soups or liquids in small plastic containers and then of course remove them from the kit to microwave. When fully packed, this container is like lifting some light arm weights and when I walk to my car at night I figure if anyone comes after me, swinging it at them will definently leave a mark, so if you want a light toss it in your bag container, this isn't it. Other than the few negatives, this is a great sturdy kit which often gets compliments and ooos and ahhs when you pull it out on a lunch break.
It also doesn't hurt that the box is so cute that it gets lots of compliments. It's a real conversation starter.
I do wish the comparments were water tight and microwaveable but the larger sqaures are big enough to hold a small container of liquid.
