Great for keeping your food hot for a very long time, it also protects your

food from outer damage. Perfect for any kind of food…soup, fried chicken,

pancakes, pasta etc. Probably the best solution.

 

3.  OVEN

This is if you are not traveling. Put your hot food in oven and close it.

If you want it to stay hot for a longer time then turn the oven

on very low.

 

4. CASSEROLE  DISH

This is also good for both while traveling and when your food stays at home.

Not for a longer time but you can wrap it with towels to stay warm for

a longer time.

Perfect for quick trips and even for longer if you wrap the food

in aluminum foil and then put in these foam containers.

food real hot, styrofoam is known as a good thermal insulator,

classic plastic dishes. It will keep your food hot for a short time,
