Tupperware Eco TaPau Set: Mother-in-law’s homecooking

Sigh, I’m down with the flu this week. *sniff* Usually, hubby and I go to his parents’ home for dinner twice a week. But because I was too sick to go out, hubby tapau-ed Mother-in-law’s (MIL) homecooking for me. *heart MIL & hubby*

Steamed red garoupa and braised chicken wings

It’s so comforting to eat home-cooked food when one is under the weather. Homecooking is much lighter (no MSG, less oil & salt) and more wholesome than commercially prepared food. Just by eating this dinner, I felt a lot more nourished.

Heating up dinner in the microwave

Before I got the Tupperware Eco TaPau Set, MIL would sometimes pack her food for us in metal tingkat containers (for times when either hubby or I weren’t able to go home for dinner).

Metal tingkat containers are also recyclable and thus environmentally friendly, but there’s one downside – they are non-microwaveable. To heat up the food, we would have to scoop the food out onto microwaveable dishes first.

A piping hot dinner will be ready in 29 secs!

This time, I asked hubby to use the Tupperware Eco TaPau Set to bring pack MIL’s homecooking. All I had to do was to open the vent cap for the steam to escape, and place CrystalWave dish and lid (which prevents the food from splattering) in the microwave.

Then, I simply ate dinner straight from the Tupperware dishes. No need to use extra dishes, which means less washing up. Yay!

Well, I’ve been using the Tupperware Eco TaPau Set for 3 weeks now. Here’s what I like about it:

  • Its sturdy quality and chic design.
  • It’s easy to clean and asssemble.
  • The handles by the sides are nifty, especially when the container is heated up by hot food within and it’s hard to hold the hot container.
  • Although I’ve been using them for myself, the individual containers are roomy enough to hold portions for two persons.

The only thing I don’t really like is that the entire set is rather bulky. Guess they designed it to be roomier so that you can use it for more than one person, but I wouldn’t mind getting a smaller sized set if they do launch one in the future. For now, I’ll continue to use this handy Tupperware Eco TaPau Set!
