Trendy, practical, just the thing for taking snacks to work or for school packed lunches. This Indian-Tiffin is often known as the Belly Tiffin as its quite wide, this however gives it the benefit of being to carry more food. Tiffin boxes are very durable and built to last, they come direct from Mumbai, India, where they have been used for centuries and are still used today. These Tiffins are great for keeping snacks and food that can be taken by kids to school, or to work. They are also great for picnics. They not only look great, they will continue to do so as they are made from stainless steel, much better than the plastic lunchboxes that are so popular nowadays. Tiffins are dishwasher safe and freezer safe, and can also be used directly on stoves or campfires. Join the Tiffin revolution, and the growing band of people taking their lunches into work in a trend and environmentally friendly way. The Tiffin has three tins, which both have a diameter of 11cm and a height of 5.8cm. When fully assembled, it stands 22.5cm off the ground.

This is just the right size and weight. Please review the measurements carefully because this may be smaller than you expect (see my photos). Mine arrived soiled with heavy grease and metal filings but a good wash shined it up just fine. There was also a dent in the side and a tiny bit of superficial rust which I merely rubbed off with my finger. There are some small gouges and tool-marks on the inside. Amusingly, there is a rather unlicensed-looking Mickey Mouse in the steel company's logo.
I would like to remind everyone that different countries have different standards as far as what they call stainless steel. This is on the low quality end of the spectrum. However if this were a thicker and higher quality steel, we would then be complaining that the tiffin is too heavy! I think the quality, weight and price is well-balanced in this product. You do not need higher quality stainless for this purpose. Stainless steel CAN rust, but it should only have light...
Don't expect this Tiffin to be waterproof, because it isn't. But it is a great little Tiffin! It holds the perfect amount of food for a substantial lunch, and the three tiers makes it easy to remember to add healthy choices. It is exactly what I was looking for!
So excited to receive this but when I opened it, the top handle came off. Not going to send it back because it was not sodered in the first place, so it seems likely to come off again. Would have preferred it to have been more solid and stayed in one piece.
