You can get a wide variety of tiffins on Devon Ave., in Chicago. But they use them (a version of them) in Thailand, too, so Southeast Asian markets often carry them as well. I have a whole bunch of them, and often take them to Asian restaurants of all kinds for them to put the take-out in. I usually get a little extra, and the staff always smiles and says, "Ah! Just like home!" They know me as "the guy with the metal cans."

Was shocked just few months back when our trained from Britain asked for a Steel Tiffin carrier that he wants to gift to his wife.
It was more precious to him than Gold and we got a big one of 4 dibbas for him

Memories of childhood, carrying food in them shiny stainless steel carriers, lunch break and the taste of homefood .

Sad , now all i have to eat is " Industrial Grade " office pantry / canteen food

miss good ol home food ..

I bought a masala dabba spice box from Delhi last August. It's been very handy to store part of my spices in it.

Next time in India I must definetly look around for this "tiffin carrier" lunch box apparatus. I noticed the locals carrying them already on my first trip but never came up with a need to buy one for myself. Now after dozens of bus and train journeys with an empty stomach I really need to get one of these. Would be great to fill one up with that delicious food from some restaurant just before setting off to a 12h train ride!

Thank you for this info!

That's so funny. My wife was just mentioning these yesterday. She suggested we get them for take-out (to reduce waste). I suggested maybe we could find them on good ole Devon Ave. And then here's your post! Weird!

I think soon i'll be able to set up our own 'tiffin box shop' here in Finland.My wife just cannot stop buying them,plus all the other stainless steel goodies.
They really are great value for money in India,compared to prices here(if you can find them,that is).
They are great,practical souveniers.

I used to use them when at school. Even won one as a prize! Unfortunately, they are not microwaveable, so difficult to heat the food.

wow.. what a intresting tread on Masala dabba and steel comtainers..

being a indian, steel dabbas are inseparable parts of our life, from schooll lunch boxes to home storage containers everything is steel..

I too remember getting prize as steel comtainer.. even people gift steel utensils..

non-corrosive, re-usable and eaisly cleanable properties make stainless steel a prime candidate..

i would also like to share along with yu a secret.. actually yu can get yur names written on the steel items with a elctronic pen sort of device, which generally all steel shop owners will have.

There is unique tradition of each family to have there secret codes and location for there utensils, generally indians like to share the food among there friends and neighbours hence they use this steel items.

But if there is any confusion in identifying our items ( since each home has similar items ) then we use our secret encryption to identify them back..

wht a tradition.. proud to be a indian and love to be in india.. !

Just an update, if you're looking for these in Chicago, check Patel Bros on Devon. The statue store near the grocery store. They have very nice sets with warmer bags, and reasonably priced.
