It’s that time of year again, you know when all the parties kick off, and tailgating and home-gating and when any and every event turns into a party? This is my favorite time of year because food is the reason for the season. I am not going to go on and on about how to indulge in the gluttony of overeating, I am sure you can figure that out on your own. I am going to share with you, the single greatest portable party platter I have found! In my home, as you know, bringing food wherever we go is the norm as I have a child with severe food allergies, and the portable party platters make food toting a true treat for him as well as myself! The portable party platters I have found will let you get down and dirty with food and after you assemble it you can tote it to any party, tailgating, sports field, ladies nights, camp site, backyard, beach and more! Are you ready to see who has created the ultimate in portable party platters? Let’s look at Portable Party Platters and a container storage set that locks into itself for storage, and how important they are when you have someone that has severe food allergies and are preparing for a party!
One word for incredible storage containers that withstand the test of time: Rubbermaid. That’s right, Rubbermaid. In my cabinets you will find Rubbermaid from about 18+ years ago and I am very proud to tell you that. After years of use and reuse, storage and storing, my containers are tough as the day is long and they have plenty of life in them. Rubbermaid will stand the test of time. Having a child that was once Gluten Free and another child that has severe food allergies food separation to avoid contamination is so very important ensuring me that no one will get sick during or after eating.
Here’s the scoop: this food storage system is easy because the lid snaps to the container so you never have a lid gone missing. In addition, the containers don’t take up tons of valuable space in your kitchen, as they nest in one another.
When I make one meal for my family, I often have to cook it in batches so that there is enough for every specialized diet in my home. For instance, when I cook pasta, my son can not eat the sauce, therefore, he has to have plain pasta. I make pasta for him and store it in one Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids™ and of course another batch for us with sauce stored in Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids™ containers that I have marked SAUCE.
The Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids™ were so impressive that I wanted you to see them up close, so here is a quick video overview.
Other times when I cook meat, I might cook one batch with a Honey BBQ and the other without as my son with severe food allergies can’t have honey products, which means I again have to store 2 different meals and they MUST be marked and separated. Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids™ helps me get the job done right and they keep my son safe. As we often are at a ballfield, sports event, tailgating scene, beachfront, etc., I am forever toting food. The Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids™ are great for foods like: Buffalo Chicken Dip, Buffalo Shrimp Dip, & Potato Balls, I also find that a portioned container with a plethora of different food options is nice as well.
I keep 2 Rubbermaid Party Platters, one for allergen free foods that my son can indulge in while we are out and another for all the rest of us. The Party Platters are perfect for finger foods, like corn chips, grapes, cheese chunks and some carrots and of course don’t forget the dip. The dip can tote along in this cup.
For everyone else, I set up an additional portable party platter with nuts, seafood dip that needs heated, chips, crackers and some celery sticks. The heating up is no big deal as the dip container can be heated in the microwave and it does not spill.
The entire system is BPA free, dishwasher safe and so easy to pack. I believe the part I love the best about the Rubbermaid Party Platter is the fact that the Twist & Seal Lid secures to a leak-proof state and that prevents spills. You know we have all tried those ‘cheap’ containers that the lids just pop off of, this is NOT Gonna happen with the Rubbermaid Party Platter. Did I happen to mention that the price tag on this particular Portable Party Platter is Under $9? and it is dishwasher safe? Sit down, take a load off and let the dishwasher do the cleanup!
As a few final notes and worthy mentions of this awesome Rubbermaid Party Platter I want to add in that it is Microwave and freezer safe, so no cracking, no melting, just an all together perfect Party Platter! Remember to use the lid as a chip receptacle, as it is deep enough and it is plastic so it won’t break! Fill it up and get the party on!
Here’s to being able to pack up a great party without spills, from freezer to table to microwave and back to the fridge(if there is anything left, lol) as Rubbermaid has me covered– should I say Rubbermaid has my FOOD covered. It’s time to break out those Party Platters and Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids™ as party time is here and the season is just beginning. Fill these great containers up with foods for tailgating, backyard fall parties and all the upcoming holidays! ~ CHEERS.
