Raffle Time! MIRA Stainless Steel 2 container set


It’s been awhile since I’ve hosted a raffle – and the good folks at MIRA Brands have graciously donated their Stainless Steel 2 Container Set for you to win.

Who’s feeling lucky?

Here are the facts on these great little containers:

* stainless steel

* the lids are non-toxic and free of BPA, phthalates, PVC and lead

* dishwasher safe

Chipotle chicken, anyone?

MIRA Brands sent me a set as well. I’ve been using them all week and I can tell you my two favorite features without hesitation:

1. Stainless steel keeps food colder/warmer longer than plastic containers

2. I can load these up with snack-worthy foods, throw them in my handbag, and the lids stay secure. Not once has the lining on my Kate Spade bag been threatened by these containers. 🙂

(You don’t know how cranky I can get if there are almonds crushed into the lining of a gorgeous bag!)

They go through the dishwasher like a dream (I use the top rack). And this may seem frivolous to some, but I love the look of these containers. I’m not carrying around some cruddy piece of disposable plasticware. They’re cute and stylish.

My fat free greek yogurt dip is my favorite snack to cart around in these containers. The stainless steel keeps the dip nice and cool until I get to my destination (usually work) and one container holds plenty of dip for a batch of my homemade fat free chips.

They’re also handy for almonds, granola, and just about any snack portion you can think of. I keep one handy for my yogurt dip…and the other?  Well, we all have our bad days, right? The other one stays in my handbag and holds my “emergency stash” when the 7 Dwarfs of the Menstrual Apocalypse are here.

  1. As a Weight Watcher member, one of the best things I’ve learned to do is portion out my snacks ahead of time. That way when I want something to nibble on I just have to grab a container of whatever I’m hungry for and I don’t have to worry about overindulging. : )

  2. I pre portion everything so these would be used for my snacks or a side to my meal like cottage cheese or my greek yogurt

  3. Well I’d probably put some chipotle chicken in mine because wow that looks good. I snack sometimes at work and hardly ever remember to use anything other than a baggie. I’d probably put my almonds into one. That would come in handy for sure!

  4. Would definitely be bringing snacks to work in these babies. Love the idea of toting around yogurt dip. Maybe homemade granola in one and yogurt in the other for me.

  5. Like I tweeted! Need everything for the kitchen. Not a single Rubbermaid item to hate even! I NEED these!

  6. I’d use one for houmous and take veggies in the other! (But I don’t suppose you’ll post to London!!!!)

  7. I’d definitely use them for snacks or anything that I don’t want to stain my plastic containers.

  8. I love the look of these and they would be great for any snack! I now want all stainless containers. I take my lunch to work so I would use these everyday.

  9. It would be perfect for my salsa sour cream dip.
    I take my lunch everyday to work, I love stainless steel for salads to keep them cold.

  10. These would be great for snacks at work! I love that they would keep items cooler or warmer longer than a typical bowl since I get so busy and can’t eat everything right away.

  11. I’d love a set of these to preportion snacks for work!! Great giveaway, thanks for hosting!!

  12. I would totally use it to store grapes, strawberries, cucumber slices or (fresh) orange slices for when I’m out running errands and want a snack!
