I'm off to a Tupperware party tonight (have been promised chocolate and champagne), so will need to do the guilty obligatory purchase. Really not into Tupperware, but I have the can opener, the marinating thingie, and the beet root keeper. I'm after something reasonably priced that's a little different, not just the storage tubs as I'm happy enough with sistema.

My eldest starts school next year, are the Tupperware lunch boxes worthwhile?

Not sure about the lunch boxes but I recommend the turbo chef  original.gif

We have 8 of the small sandwich keepers and we use them daily (well, not all of them, but at least 3/day).  I like the smaller ones because I'd rather use 2 or 3 than try to fill the big one.

I don't do guilt purchases at party plans anymore though.

DD & DS have the lunch bags (approx $15 each), they are great!! Ds hasn't used his yet but DD does everyday, really easy to clean out & fits quite a bit of food, even with 2 ice bricks in it!

I also got the lunch boxes (the set of 5) & the small round containers with lids, great for yoghurt, grapes, etc.

I also have the small turbo chef thingy, the ice block makers - though I haven't used them yet. I would probably go for the kids stuff just due to the fact that if they get broken you have a lifetime replacement (except the lunch bag).

Good luck & have fun Tounge1.gif

A set of 4 bowls with lids. We use them for cereal bowls.

You wil get a lot of use out of a large square container (I think it is called a sweet keeper), they also have a rectangle shaped one, they are good for biscuits and slices.

Don't send kids to school with Tupperware, they tend to lose things.

The Sweet Keeper and the FridgeSmart stuff for vegies. They are literally always in use in my house.

We have the small square sandwich keeper. Been using them for 5 yrs now.

We have had two break in that time, but Tupperware have lifetime guarantee, so happily replaced them for free.

My must have is the quite exxy Microwave stack cooker.

For my kids the lunch boxes are fantastic, the ones we use most are the Sandwich Keeper Plus with separate compartments all in one box. My daughter uses hers for school every day and there is plenty of room for her lunch and snacks. I love that it doesn't have seperate bits so no losing lids. The clasp/latch can be a little tricky for littlies at first so if you buy one make sure that you get in lots of practice with snapping the latch open and closing it tight again.

Happy chopper - awesome for cutting onions etc without having to drag out the food processor. I use it several times a week.

The sandwich keeper lunch boxes are very good.

I use the lunch meat keepers continuously and they do a good job of keeping it fresh. I got them in a set of 2 with one other container as well (I don't use that one as much). Clear plastic with a blue lid.

The small square fridgesmarts are fantastic. Mushrooms last so much longer in them as do blueberries & strawberries.
Oh and don't buy the bake2basics icing set, absolute waste of money & very difficult to use.

I love love love my Smooth Chopper and my Speedy Chef. The Heat 'n Eat sets are great for storing/freezing and reheating meals.
Last week my MicroSteamer arrived and I am in love with it. I have used it 5 times since last Sunday for steaming veges and I have also made a coconut chicken curry in it.(Recipe is in the cook book it comes with)
I couldn't live without my Tupperwave 1L jug.
I'm waiting on a delivery of the H2-on-the-go water bottles and the Tupperchef muffin form.

I was a Tupperware virgin until about 3 months ago. I had a party and sold around $1900's worth of stuff and got about $400 for free. Now I love the stuff!!

Turbo Chef! So easy to use. Great for chopping things like onions. Kids love using it too because they get to pull the cord. lol

Also love the small sandwich keepers.

I have never sent Tupperware lunch boxes to school. I wouldn't like to loose one at the price they are. We just use Smash brand and it doesn't matter if something happens to them.

Sandwich keeper Plus-My kids have used these for 7+ years-never lost one yet original.gif

Heat and eat containers. Go from freezer to fridge to microwave. Most versatile container EVAH.

Can opener. Awesome.

Mahalo salad bowls with seals. great for taking to BBQs, parties etc.

I could go on. I'm a big fan of the tuppercrack ;p

I've been eyeing this off for a while but its so exxy....  I haven't seen one IRL- does it fit much in it? When you made the curry how many serves was that?

In the recipe it says to use a round heat n eat to put the curry in but I only have the square ones. I had to use one that wasn't too high so that it would fit in with the lid on. I haven't seen the round heat n eats so maybe one slightly smaller in diameter than the steamer itself would fit a good portion in it. I made enough to serve probably 4 adults with some leftovers, but I just did it in 2 batches. It takes 24 minutes to cook so it took me nearly an hour. But once you put it in all you have to do is stir after 12 minutes so it's not like you're constantly cooking for an hour IYKWIM.

Me too LOL.

I use the fridge smarts the square ones.  I chop up carrot, capsicum, cucumber, celery etc into bite size pieces and chuck it all in.  Don't throw out much fruit and vegies as its always there ready to be eaten.  Keeps it fresh, and makes dinner, lunches, and snacks easy.

I chop it all up the minute we get home from the green grocer and it keeps nice and fresh.  I also have one for cut up fruit like watermelon, canteloupe, strawberries and pineapple.  The kids help themselves to fruit and veg all day long!

So I went, drank champagne and had a lovely giggly night.

Bought the turbo chef and the sift and store, and some sandwich keepers. Looking forward to it arriving!

Thanks for all the suggestions,

I'm stealing this idea. Thanks.

I love fridgesmarts and have a heap but I don't chop. Will try it now, especially carrots as I love them but usually CBF peeling and chopping when I feel like one.
