Follow Up on My To-Go Ware Purchase

Ok, so I know you're all dying to know what I finally decided with my new lunch container purchase right?? :) I knew it!!

Well, I emailed To-Go-Ware about the EXACT dimensions of the 3-tier tiffen - here's the friendly and helpful reply from Shannon (I love it when you get actual answers from real people in a sensible amount of time!):

Dear Stacy,

I actually just remeasured all of our tiffins (we've needed to do that for a bit now), and the 3 tier tiffin comes in actually at 6 3/4 inches fully assembled. Each unit individually is between 2 to 2 1/2 inches tall (each is slightly different because of how they fit together). Each container holds about 2 cups of liquid.

It is much smaller because of comments from customers who said they needed to be able to carry a larger variety of food, but didn't want it to be any bigger than the new 2 tier, which some folks say is too big. I think the new 2 tier is perfect, as I tend to bring things like sandwiches and salad to work. I don't eat like a bird, I make a descent sized lunch every day so the size is just right for me.

I will be updating the sizes online if you'd like to check back in a day or so.

So, I went with the three tier - the carrier came in the colors I wanted (I order the exact thing pictured above in this blog post - same colors and all) and it seemed to fit the utensil case better than the two tier carrier did (based off the pictures of each on the website). I didn't base everything on the color, I still think I pack so many different things that I would need the 3 tier to keep them all separate. Don't want my cheerios mixing with my celery. :)

I'll know for sure if I made the right choice until after Feb. 4th when my tiffen comes in the mail and I can start playing around with what can and cannot fit in it. I can't wait!!

Ooh, cool, have to let us know how it goes. I'm assuming you mean February 4th?

Stacy said...

Hey you two - thanks for finding that typos - I couldn't figure out what you meant at first - had to reread what I wrote - then it hit me. :)

Yup Feb. 4th - can't wait!! I think I have a meeting that night so I can rush home to check it out :(

a typo in the typo sentence! (typos?)


(i'm gonna stop with the pointing and laughing now. promise.) :)

Sigh. :)!
