Tupperware Makes Great Wedding Gifts

Updated on September 14, 2013

Help the New Couple Create a Well-organized Gourmet Kitchen

Tupperware products are perfect for couples who like to cook together in well-organized kitchen spaces. Whether a kitchen is small or large, Tupperware helps maximize the space available for preparing and preserving food. No, I'm not a Tupperware dealer, but I do love their products, and so do serious cooks. Tupperware saves time, space and money. If you think of Tupperware as pastel plastic bowls circa the 1950s, you're in for a pleasant surprise.

I'd like to share my favorite Tupperware products to give as wedding and shower gifts. The recommendations and reviews are mine personally, based on long experience and ownership of Tupperware products. I've kept my recommendations to a limited number. Keep in mind there are hundreds of Tupperware products in a full range of price points, colors and sizes. Many sets are offered in different collections and configurations. If you don't see exactly what you're looking for, or want a different color, continue to explore TW's full product line.

#1 Eco Water Filter Pitcher & Bottles

The Water Filtration Pitcher is my first choice because nothing is more basic to our well being than water. Tupperware has developed this new water filtration system that's practical and attractive. A welcome gift to any new couple, especially when paired with the matching personal drinking bottles featured below.

My personal beverage of choice has always been plain water. I've always kept my refrigerator water in Tupperware pitchers because there are never any transferred tastes, either from the pitcher or from other things in the fridge. The fact that Tupperware has added a filtration system to their line of pitchers, and made them beautiful is a huge bonus. Tupperware boasts the best pitcher filtration system available. Keeping a pitcher in the fridge assures pure drinking water whenever you want it.

 

Tupperware Eco Water Bottles

A great gift idea for a new couples: Tupperware's new Eco Water Bottles for personal hydration. This one is an obvious choice for today's lifestyle. Like almost everyone else I know, I keep a water bottle with me at all times. Again, Tupperware leads out with quality and design.

These bottles are available in three different sizes, and are ergonomically designed for runners/walkers. It's a bonus that they're attractive as well.

 

#2 Microwave Rice Maker

Recently my rice cooker died and I reverted to preparing rice in a pan on the stove top. I had forgotten the reason I had purchased a rice cooker in the first place - unevenly cooked rice cleanup nightmares. The pan always had rice stuck to the bottom and the burners often were covered with a sticky, starchy mess. I soon decided to replace my old rice cooker with the new Tupperware Microwave Rice Maker and I'm absolutely delighted. Not only is it less expensive than good electric rice makers, but it makes perfect fluffy or sticky (my favorite) rice in less time with no mess.

Everyone needs a dedicated rice maker. Why? Because rice made on the stove top sticks to the bottom of pans, often boils over, and becomes an unpleasant and unnecessary clean-up chore.

In my opinion, the benefits of the Tupperware Microwave Rice Maker are:

* It makes any kind of rice or grain product in less time with no mess.

* Rice is served right from the bowl it's cooked in.

* Cover and store the leftovers and easily reheat in the same bowl.

 

#3 Vent 'N Serve Microwave Collection

Tupperware Vent 'N Serve Microwave Set

The Tupperware Vent 'N Serve Microwave Collections make heating and cooking in the microwave so convenient. The flip top allows steam to vent. The hard plastic is clear, yet colorful. It amazes me how Tupperware can make a plastic product that looks like new for years and carries a lifetime guarantee.

#4 Freezer Mates

Tupperware Freezer Mate Set

The Tupperware Freezer Mate set is near the top of my picks because it's just a basic need for any new kitchen. They are shaped to maximize freezer space and come in every size you could need for leftovers or foods purchased in bulk. Many products have imitated Tupperware, but none can duplicate the quality and ultimate savings. My freezer mate set has lasted well over 20 years and still looks new.

Unsurpassed in preserving food and nutrition value, Tupperware Freezer Mate's won't crack and keep foods sealed air tight. No value is lost, and no odors from other foods are absorbed. Seals against freezer burn.

 

#5 Modular Mates

Modular Mates Home Essential Pantry Set

I think everyone should have the Modular Mates Pantry Set if for only one basic reason - pests! Since putting all my pasta, beans, rice, cereal, etc., in Tupperware's storage system 25 years ago, I can honestly say I've had zero problems with ants or mice. I love the way they line up like books on a shelf and stack in different sizes so that every inch of cupboard space is utilized. And of course anything stored in Tupperware stays airtight and fresh for an amazingly long time.

Not the most glamorous product, but probably the most essential. I like how you can see the levels of the products in the container, but if you get tired of the lid color after several years you can replace only the lids.

 

#6 Nesting Bowls

Tupperware's Impressions Nesting Bowl Set

My next pick is Tupperware's famous nesting bows. There are now many different choices. Tupperware's Impressions stylish line happens to be my favorite. They are made of Tupperware's harder plastic in a variety of colors.

#7 Tupperware's Microwave Stack Cooker

Another Tupperware product I couldn't live without. I discovered the stack cooker right after I had my twins and it instantly changed my life. The components stack together and fit in the microwave, allowing you to cook a main dish, side dish and vegetables or dessert all at the same time in less than half an hour. A cookbook is included to give you ideas. You really can make a delicious cake in the microwave! I would never have believed it if I didn't see it demonstrated and tasted the results. I use my stack cooker at least weekly, and even if I'm not cooking in it, all the pieces make beautiful serving dishes.

* It's another beauty-meets-function product that Tupperware is famous for.

* More than pays for itself. In fact, when I purchased my set it was $180. The price has come way down.

* Once you cook a meal with it, you open a whole new world of meal possibilities.

 

#8 Tupperware Microwave Pasta Maker

Another wonderful tool like the rice maker. Prepare perfect pasta in the microwave in just a few minutes! No need to wait for boiling water and no messy overflow on your stovetop. Cover doubles as a strainer, simply turn over to drain and have a hearty family meal on the table in no time.

#9 Tupperware Casual Plates and Tumblers

This is the latest in Tupperware casual lunch / dinnerware. I love having rigid casual plates you can stack in the cupboard and are dishwasher safe. Likewise, I like nonbreakable tumblers that stack.

#10 Tupperware Mix 'N Stor

Tupperware Mix 'N Stor Bowl

I've had a Mix 'N Stor bowl for 40 years and it's as good as new. They weren't as pretty then, but still functional. It's a combination mixing bowl, measuring pitcher. I use mine for mixing cakes, cookies, whipping cream and pancake batter, plus many, many other things. Couldn't live without it. The lid is in two parts so you can use a hand mixer without splattering.

#10 Tupperware Double Colander

      Tupperware is a really good brand. It lasts for some time when you take good care of it.

      @anonymous: I use mine with my mixer, but it does leave beater marks on the bottom. They're not deep or anything, but you can tell I use a mixer with it. As a rule, the harder plastic Tupperware is for use with mixers, and the softer aren't. I consider That's a Bowl on the harder side. Hope this helps :)

      I just bought a 32 cup Tupperware That's a Bowl. Can it be used with my electric handmixer to make cakes, etc.? I don't want to ruin the bowl. Thank you.
