I was so happy to be sent a tiffin box to review from Tiffinware. It is from the Risham Chawla Design Studio and the colours of the enamel are so vibrant and exotic.
Its costs £32.00 and it is available in various different colourways. The one I was sent has a lime coloured lid, the first tier is deep red, the second tier is hot magenta pink (a glorious colour!) and the bottom part is a bright turquoise blue. A tiffin box is an Indian style lunch box that comprises of stainless steel tiers that are clipped together and it has a carry handle on the top of the lid. It is designed so you can take a home-cooked meal with you wherever you might be going, be that to school , work or out on a picnic.
This is the first tiffin box I have ever owned and I LOVE it! My daughter has quite a few lunch boxes but I don’t have one myself….well…not until this little beauty arrived on my doorstep! 🙂
I had to be careful when it arrived that my dad didn’t see it. He’s a keen fisherman and I know he loves tiffin boxes as he likes to take his hot packed dinner in them when he goes out for a day of fishing. I knew if he saw this one that he would want to add it to his collection….but just this once I had to be selfish and keep this for myself. I’ve always wanted a tiffin box and now I am lucky enough to have one. (Note to self….don’t let dad read this review!!)
I have used this tiffin box quite a few times but each and every time I have forgotten to take a picture. On one occasion I packed rice into the top, green bean stew into the middle and tortilla wraps in the middle. The food stayed hot for absolutely ages and it was a delight to eat it for the tin. I will definitely be using this tiffin box lots over the winter time as I home educate my daughter and we go out on day trips a lot so to be able to take a warm comforting meal with us in our lovely tiffin box will be a godsend. Over the lifetime of the product it is sure to save me lots of money as I can prepare my meal at home to take with us and not have to pay out for hot food when we are out.
The tiffin box came packaged in presentation bag made from an Indian newspaper and it made the gift look so special. The bag came with a green card tag that said that the bag had been made by a differently abled child at The Support Foundation in New Delhi. They offer a helping hand to children and believe no-one should be treated differently. The tag was tied onto the blue rope handles of the bag with some shiny pink cord which was adorned with 2 beautiful glass beads and a copper coloured bead.. They are like little added treasures that have been sneaked in with your gift to add a small to your face. I loved the presentation of the Tiffin Box so much!
I can highly recommend Tiffinware’s enamel collection to you. I think that the tiffin box would make an amazing Christmas gift for someone you know who takes lunch to work or who enjoys the outside life so likes to partake of a picnic lunch when they can. To be absolutely honest… anyone and everyone would just adore an item from the enamelled homeware collection from Tiffinware. They also sell spice boxes, small bowls, trays, tea caddys and kitsch kitchenware.
Here is a little bit about the Tiffinware brand (Taken from the website) which was started by Diane and Risham :-
“Colour has played a large part in Risham’s life – one of her earliest influences was the Botanical Gardens in Poona, India, where her father was Director. Later, in West Africa, it was the fabulously rich dyes, trade beads and Ghanaian textiles, which made a lasting impression. This love of bold hues, coupled with her distinctive design eye, helped Risham to set up Tiffinware, allowing her to meld the traditional with a modern ‘tongue in cheek’ twist, and create colour popping, bright homeware, quirky gifts with contemporary lines, using age-old crafting techniques, always an element of surprise!”

Like I said earlier, Christmas is soon going to be here so it is best to start ordering those gifts so that you can be organised and get your Christmas shopping done in plenty of time. I think a brighly coloured enamel present from Tiffinware would be perfect for anyone who like a bit of colour in their life. If of course they don’t like colour then you can still buy them something from Tiffinware – just make sure it’s from the hammer finish collection instead!
