What is a heated tupperware?

Basically, tupperware is a silicone jar that holds and transports fresh food. It is an eponymous utensil. It takes its name from its manufacturing company, Tupperware, created in 1938 in the United States by Earl Tupper. Today, the brand has revolutionized its products by integrating heated tupperware into its collection.


These are actually portable containers that run on an internal heating system. You simply fill them with your food, plug them into an outlet and your food is heated in minutes. Some models look like tiny slow cookers and run on power sources ranging from 12V to 220V.

Buying guide for the best heated tupperware: all the advice you need


It is obvious that no one wants to invest in something that is not worth their money. That's why you need to consider a variety of factors if you're thinking about buying a heated tupperware.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of using a heated lunch box?

The first advantage of using a heated tupperware is the convenience of a hot meal at your fingertips. You don't need a microwave oven to cook or reheat your favorite meals. Without leaving your desk, you have a delicious, warm meal in minutes. Also, the jar can be taken anywhere, is healthy, and is a great money saver on fast food.

However, there are also drawbacks to note, especially if you are an office worker. Obviously, some workstation configurations may prevent you from enjoying the benefits of the storage box. In addition, you have to plug it into an electrical outlet. Imagine for a moment that the outlet is located under your desk. This means that you will have to crawl under the table every day to plug in or unplug the device. So pay attention to this detail before you buy.

What are the factors that determine the best warming tupperware?


Find here all the important criteria that you should always check before choosing your heated tupperware.

Size and capacity

Several sizes exist to offer you a unique consumption experience. Depending on the portability and your eating habits, there are small sizes (200 ml to 350 ml capacity), medium sizes (400 to 800 ml) and large sizes (more than 1 liter).

The design material

Here, we recommend that you opt for stainless steel with a polypropylene plastic casing. These are premium quality materials and are Bisphenol A free. Moreover, they are easy to maintain and guarantee the durability of your warming bowl.

The power source

Because of the electricity your warmer uses, you need an optimal power source. So make sure the output voltage of the box is compatible with your local power source. For use in the car, we recommend units with 12V or 24V adapters to plug into the cigarette lighter. For more information on this subject, you can consult our article dealing with car flat heaters. On the other hand, in the office or at home, you will need a cable with a single 220V power outlet.

Heating time

A quality warming bowl must be able to heat your food in a few minutes. Typically, the typical time is between 20 and 30 minutes. At Healthy Lunch, we break that record with models that heat up your food in just 15 minutes.

The Price

Due to certain specifics, the price of food warmers can vary on the market. Naturally, a 2 or 3 tiered bowl will cost more than a modest, but compact and complete tupperware. At Healthy Lunch, we offer a remarkable value for money. Just browse through our catalog to get the best deal.

In short, you don't have to carry around disposable dishes to finally eat cold food. Take advantage of the heated tupperware in our comparison that cooks and heats your raw or prepared food from home. And if one of the models convinces you, our secure online store opens its doors to you.
