It’s been absolutely yonks since we’ve had a tiffin for sale! They’re very cool items, although probably not used very much in South Africa, but if you were living in India you’d be no stranger to the tiffin – there’s a whole network of delivery men who take tiffins filled with hot lunches to men and women every day while they’re at work! I don’t think this tiffin’s ever been used, and as a result the metal holder is a bit stiff – if I had to fill these enamel ‘lunch boxes’ with hot food, I think more of it would land up on me than in my tummy as I attempted to close the tiffin, but I suppose you get the hang of it, and in theory the metal handle should loosen up over time. Regardless it’s pretty cool, and not something you see that often – in South Africa at least!
P.S. Watch this video about India’s dabbawalas who deliver over 400 000 tiffins daily – absolutely crazy!
