Tupperware Classics: Square Rounds

Posted by Andrew Humphrey on

  So let's get this out of the way first -- can I still supply Square Rounds?  No, and yes.  A few years ago Tupperware's whole freezer range was upgraded to a new style called the Freezer Mates. They are an improvement on all the great features of the Square Rounds, but I know very well that folks are very attached to the Square Rounds. With the launch of the Freezer Mates, the Square Rounds dropped out of the catalogue. But I can still supply spare parts of the seals (lids) in white only, and spare bases in 400ml size as above...

Tupperware Classics: Space Savers for cupboard storage

Posted by Andrew Humphrey on

This photo is obviously a Tupperware publicity shot. No-one in the real world would have kitchen storage like that. Would they?Ladies and gentleman I refer you to Sandie, one of my first ever customers in 2006. When I delivered her order, she sweetly allowed me to take a snap of her larder.  Sandie has Space Saver Ovals, Squares, Rectangles and Rounds. A kitchen rd well-stocked with Space Savers is the sign of a hard-core Tupperware connoisseur, like Sandie. A snazzy divided lunchbox, an Eco water bottle complete with a brush for cleaning, or a Hot Food on the Go is something you can...

Tupperware Classics: The Sandwich Keeper

Posted by Andrew Humphrey on

Currently in furlough while we are eating our lunches at home, the Tupperware Sandwich Keeper is a survivor, a classic, and a hero. Tupperware loves coining new names for its product ranges. I have a soft spot for the Eleganzia range, which I always say in RuPaul's voice, but the "Bake 2 Basics" range was always one pun too many for me. And there is a lot of 'n': Grab'n'Cut, Mix 'n' Stor, Slice 'n' Star, Tupperware also likes to name a product in a way that suggests it is not just passively storing your food, but actively working with you to take...

The slow death of Surface Mail

Posted by Andrew Humphrey on

Overseas customers often ask me why there I don't offer a slow and cheap Surface Mail option for larger deliveries. I wish I could. Here's the story. I previously did offer Surface Mail as a delivery option for customers worldwide. It is cheap, and hence attractive to customers, and while it is too slow for most people -- up to 12 weeks delivery by sea -- that was fine for some customers who did not need their order urgently. Unfortunately, when the UK Royal Mail rebranded Surface Mail as "International Economy" in 2014, they quietly removed the main features that...

Russian around in Kaliningrad

Posted by Andrew Humphrey on

I love to travel, and many years ago when the Guardian newspaper first launched their online edition I won a contest to spend six months travelling around the world for them, writing about my travels as I went. I know, eh! This is the ad for my column that they ran in the paper. Now when I go away I need make sure my Tupperware business keeps running.  The orders keep coming in, and my delivery from the distributor comes every Thursday or Friday. So if I am not here to sort, pack and dispatch orders, I will have some irate customers....
