Limited quantities, so if you are quick you might get one! 

This beautiful stainless steel tiffin lunch box has a hand-painted enamel exterior and is held together by latches so it can be dismantled effortlessly, to be used as plates. You’ll love having such a one-of-a-kind and special way to take your food to work or getting your takeaways from farmers’ markets packed into this intricately designed container instead of single-use plates. Pack a lunch, or a dinner… it’s ideal for picnics, taking some food to a party or Al fresco dining. It also makes a fabulous addition to your glamping kit!

Three separate bowl containers with lids make it easy to pack a variety of food, plastic-free. Because steel is a good retainer of heat, your meal can remain warm for up to two hours in a tiffin. Be sure to also take a look at our rectangular stainless steel lunch boxes here.

The dangers of hot food in plastic

Hot food in plastic containers may cause chemicals to leach into your food, making a stainless steel container a much safer option. Learn more about chemicals in plastic leaching out of the plastic and into the food and beverages we eat and drink here.

Other uses for your hand-painted stainless steel tiffin lunch box

This tiffin lunch box also makes a beautiful kitchen storage container and will add a splash of colour to your home if used as ornamental accents.

The history of the tiffin lunch box

Colourful and bright, yet also practical, it is large enough for a generous meal. Your painted tiffin is really a homage to the incredible cuisine of India and we love how the use of tiffin boxes dates back to the 1890s in Mumbai! Mahadeo Havaji Bachche started his own lunch delivery service, hiring 100 delivery men to distribute hot lunches from family kitchens to city employees. Workers could enjoy traditional cuisine on their lunch breaks, that was generally cheaper than getting takeaways, while also eliminating the waste associated with a takeaway meal. The stainless steel tiffin lunch boxes were collected and returned after each use. How awesome is that!?

Unfortunately we’ve become a throwaway society. We have however changed our habits once, and we can do it again! Purchasing reusable items once is an investment that replace money draining single-use items. They’re built to last, pay for themselves pretty fast and benefit you (and the planet!) in the long run.
