The Real Reason for the Circle in Your Tupperware Container Lid


Earlier this week, we shared a story about a Twitter user who schooled the entire internet on what the division symbol really means. Now we’ve got some ingenious lady who was kind enough to teach us what the heck that circle on your Tupperware lid is actually used for with a Facebook post.  

Frankly speaking, I don’t do the whole meal prep thing. I’ve tried it once or twice, but the idea of eating the same lunch day after day for an entire week seems entirely too dull for my varied tastes. Yeah, yeah — I realize I could simply prep multiple meals for lunches, but who the heck has time for that?! 

I barely have time to brush my teeth in the morning, and I’m not about to waste any free-weekend time on my health and fitness, puh-lease. (You can diet the other five days of the week!) 

I do, however, think this particular invention is pretty nifty! I’m thinking about all of the ways I could utilize it — for the extra butter I sneak into the movies for the popcorn; a sip of wine during lunch; hot sauce for well, basically everything. The options are endless. For those of you just looking to throw some oil and vinegar in there for a salad, good for you! Show off.
