This two-tier stainless steel carrier is wonderful solution for this product and a great way to take your food to-go. Stainless steel's resilience means this carrier will be with you for a long time, and won't leach toxins like many plastics can.
Although it isn't insulated, the carrier works for both hot and cold food; the two separate units allow you to keep your side dish from running into your main course. Try putting the carrier on the stove to warm up a meal too -- it's perfect for backpacking. (Don't microwave it, though. It's metal, folks, and metal and microwaves don't play well together.) The lid for the top tier acts as a convenient plate as well.
The 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, or for filling with a perfectly-sized portion of chocolate mousse. (Guess which I prefer?) Just use soap and water, or pop it in the dishwasher to clean. The handle folds down, which makes the carrier easy to store as well as carry to the office, to school, while camping or picnicking...
These To-Go Ware carriers are splendid for almost all age groups; they can hold quite a bit of food, depending on how you choose to pack them, and are incredibly convenient. This morning, as a representative day, my nine-year-old got a spinach salad and rice with furikake in the top section, a hummus sandwich, a hardboiled egg, a sectioned orange, half a baked potato, and some dried fruit in the bottom section. And there was room left over for more food -- I'd just run out of imagination and time for meal prep! My husband loves it too; he never has any trouble fitting enough food in for his appetite. His bottom tier today had a sizable chunk of green chile sausage bread pudding, a spinach salad, a couple of hard-boiled eggs, and some broccoli, while his upper tier had quite a lot of fruit salad. More than enough to keep him going all day long, that's for sure.
Consider taking the carrier to your favorite take-out place and getting the food in a non-disposable container -- you could start an environmentally-friendly trend! Combine with the Sling Bag and Utensil Set, either individually or in the Action Pack, for more fun and greater convenience.

(If you ordered a To-Go Ware Food Carrier prior to December 2008, you, like us, are Old School (it's "a term of respect for the past greats of whatever discipline you're talking about"); this is a newer model here. You can, of course, collect them both. I'm certainly going to have to, especially since my six-year-old "needs" his own lunch container now. :)
