Tupperware Microwave Rice Maker

This rice cooker is everything it promises to be. In fact it is so good at its job that people love it! I am sometimes asked questions about its use and what can be cooked in it, how long rice and grains need to cook and if it is easy to clean, so I am sharing the package insert that comes with the rice cooker with you to answers those questions.

Finally, perfect rice every time. With the Tupperware® Microwave Rice
Maker you can cook almost any type of rice and/or grain fast, easy, and
virtually mess free. By cooking and serving in one container, you can
save time, energy and space in your kitchen.

Key Features and Benefits
• The Tupperware® Microwave Rice Maker is easy to use. Simply fill
the base with the ingredients, close securely and place in the
• Cook and serve in the same container.
• Leftover rice and/or grains can also be stored in the refrigerator
and re-heated in the microwave as needed. Note: The cover is not
liquid tight.
• The Microwave Rice Maker comes in three parts: Base, Insert and
Cover. Assembly instructions are conveniently etched on the Insert.
• The Microwave Rice Maker features a unique double cover that
collects the foam created during cooking and channels it into the
recessed area of the cover, then drains it back into the base. Your
microwave stays clean and safe from spills.
• Maximum fill for rice and water located on the outside of the base.
• The cover handles fold down and lock on the base, giving you a solid
grip when removing hot rice from the microwave.
• For best results, keep rice and water within the guidelines marked on
the container and use the correct power levels and cooking times for
your microwave.
• Makes up to 4 cups of cooked rice.

To Use
• Fill the base with rice first and then add water, paying attention to the
maximum fill line. To avoid boiling over, do not exceed maximum
• Place the insert on to the base with the rimmed side up.
• Line up the handles of the lid with the handles on the side of the base.
Snap the handles in place by folding down and “clicking” the handles
of the cover on the handles of the base to lock them in place.

For Best Results
• Rinse the rice unless otherwise stated on the packaging.
• Use cold water.
• When cooking with salt (1 tsp.) add 2 – 4 minutes of cooking time.
• Allow rice to stand 5 minutes before serving.
• Fluff the rice after cooking with a plastic non-scratch Tupperware

Cooking Guidelines for 4 servings:
All Rice and/or Grain needs to stand for at least 5 minutes before
servings unless otherwise noted below.

• The Microwave Rice Maker is safe for temperatures between
32° - 248°F/ 0° - 120°C.
• Do not use in the freezer and do not exceed 248°F/ 120°C.
• Do not cook rice without water.
• Do not add fats, oils, or liquids that contain fat such as milk. Use only
water for cooking rice.
• The Microwave Rice Maker is not suitable for making risotto or rice
• Do not use abrasives or sharp utensils to avoid scratching.
• Respect the maximum fill line. Do not overfill to avoid boil-over. For
rice with a high starch content, cook small quantities.
• Always lift the lid away from you to avoid burning from steam buildup.
• Always use oven mitts when removing cooked rice from the
microwave oven.

• Dishwasher safe.
• Refrigerator safe.
• Rinse the entire container immediately after use with cold water to
prevent strong odors or stains.

product and is not covered by the Tupperware® guarantee.

No Wonder Tupperware Products are so Great!

Tupperware Design Team Earns International Honors

What does Tupperware have in common with brands such as Bose, BMW, LG Electronics, Adidas, Nokia, Apple and Siemens? Cutting-edge design.

Like these companies in years past, Tupperware received one of the most prestigious distinctions in the design world, the red dot: design team of the year for 2009. The award honors design teams that continuously distinguish themselves through groundbreaking design and by setting new industry standards.

“For more than 60 years, Tupperware has been developing functional products with practical value, using simple but nevertheless ingenious, and definitely distinctive design,” said Professor Dr. Peter Zee, initiator of the red dot design awards. “With the typical Tupperware design, the company has managed to give ingenious ideas an appropriate form for many years.

Tupperware’s success story is an example of continuous innovative potential which has been shaping our daily lives for generations. For this achievement we are honoring the Tupperware Design Team with the highest distinction that exists in the design world.”

Have you ever wondered who designs new Tupperware products? We often joke at Tupperware parties that it must be designed by a woman because it is so well thought out! lol But if you click on the following link you will meet the design team and discover that more than 1/2 of them are men. Way to go guys! Keep up the good work. We love it when new products are launched!

Chef Stuart's Oatmeal Pecan Cookies

Chef Stuart’s Oatmeal Pecan Cookies

When it comes to cookies—and let’s face it, we all love our cookies, it’s hard to find healthy ones out there—but this is my best solution for healthy cookies. Oatmeal takes me back home and incorporating it into cookies is a great way to get fiber into your diet. If you’re on the go, grab a cookie on your way to work or put one in your kid’s lunch box. These are also great for freezing in Freezer Mates® Containers for later!

Makes approximately 24 cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. Simple Indulgence™ Cinnamon-Vanilla Seasoning Blend
½ cup pecans, chopped
1-1/2 cups quick cooking oats

Let’s Bake!
1. Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C.
2. In your Thatsa® Bowl using a Saucy Silicone Spatula, cream butter, white and brown sugars together.
3. Beat in egg.
4. Now combine flour, baking soda, salt, and Simple Indulgence™ Cinnamon-Vanilla Seasoning Blend until well mixed.
5. Fold in pecans and the oats until well mixed.
6. Using a tablespoon from your Measuring Spoons Set, portion out cookie dough, roll into a ball, place onto greased baking sheet and gently press down with thumb.
7. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes or until a light golden brown.
8. Remove from baking sheet and let cool on a rack.
9. Place cookies in the festive Holiday Snack Canister or a Modular Mates® container to preserve freshness, or put in a Freezer Mates® Large 2 and freeze for later.

TupperLiving Blooming Teapot with Infuser Review - by Valentina Bellicova

I love my Tupperware teapot!

When Cheryll showed me her Tupperware catalogue, the beautiful glass teapot immediately caught my eye. I liked the shape, the angled handle and that it was glass! It looked so modern and yet so classic. Of course I ordered the large sized one right away.

It arrived in practically no time at all. It was even better in real life than as a picture. So elegant! Cheryll pointed out the clip on the lid as a nice feature that keeps the lid from flipping when pouring the tea. At first I thought this was a frivolous feature until I started to use the pot and noticed that I no longer needed to put my other hand over the lid to keep it from falling off the pot.

The feature I like best though is the infuser. I’m a tea granny from way back. I like my tea loose. I like that I can put the tea leaves in the infuser, let them steep and when the tea reaches the strength at which I like to drink it, I just remove the infuser from the pot. This is important because tea leaves left to steep begin to take on a bitter taste after a while.

Oh, did I say that I got the Tupperware tea as well? I would pay a lot more for a tea of that quality at the tea store I normally buy my teas from and it is simply delicious!

I think that this makes for a wonderful gift – Christmas, birthday, showers, housewarming... I mean the list is endless.

Valentina Bellicova

PS. I forgot to mention that it pours well as so often the tea drips form the spouts and you get a soggy tablecloth.

FridgeSmart Containers

FridgeSmart Containers are Tupperware's biggest selling items. Why is that you ask? Statistics show that a set of 3 containers will pay for itself 4 times in the first year alone with all the food they save. On top of that, the improved quality of your produce will have you recommending their use to everyone you know!

Here is a picture of my FridgeSmart Containers in my fridge. I love the organization and control I have in managing my produce.

Now for a few tips to help you get the most out of your FridgeSmart Containers:

1. Put your produce in your FridgeSmart Containers both naked and dirty
- that means take it out of the bag if you brought your produce home in one
- don't wash it until you are ready to use it... however, I give my lettuce a good rinse and a shake before storing it in the FS containers. That way it is all ready to cut up and spin in my Tupperware Salad Spinner when I'm making salad.

Why should fruits and vegetables not be washed first? It is actually the excess water that causes produce to rot.

2. Feel free to combine veggies in one container. Be sure they have the same venting requirements for best results.

3. Store your empty FridgeSmart Containers in the fridge. Give them a wash and return them to their rightful spot on the fridge shelf; that way they are all ready to go when you need them, and you won't have to find space in the fridge to keep them. Also, you won't have to find space in a cupboard to store them in when they aren't in use and dig them out when you arrive home with your groceries. It'll save you a ton of time and frustration.

- it is so easy to arrive home from shopping and think you'll just put the produce away in the plastic bags until you get the FridgeSmarts out. From experience, I can tell you that the next time you'll think about it will be when you are throwing out those plastic bags of old, past their best fruits and veggies from the bottom of your produce drawer that you didn't get around to using, before your next grocery shopping trip!

If you've never used FridgeSmart Containers and would like to try just one, be sure to get one to store your fresh mushrooms in. You will be amazed at how long your mushrooms will keep... 2 weeks for company, and 3 weeks for family! Once you've experienced the miracle of mushrooms in your FridgeSmart Containers you will know how fresh everything will stay when you use the containers for your other produce items, and before you know it you will want to completely outfit your fridge with FridgeSmarts! (You'll want to host a party to get them Free and 1/2 price too!)

Now let's talk cheese. FridgeSmart Containers are excellent for storing cheese in your fridge. Keep cheese in its package, slicing or grating it from one end. It is not necessary to re-wrap the cheese with plastic wrap and place an elastic around the end of it before placing it in a FridgeSmart Container. Just leave the package open. Also, you may store several different cheeses together in the same container using the same method. However, I caution you to not store your mild cheeses like Cheddar, and Mozzarella along with your smellier cheese such as Gorgonzola and Stilton. They will all store fine... but they will all smell and taste like the stronger cheeses! Ask me how I know!

-one more cheese storing tip: If you ever have a problem with mold growing on your cheeses, be sure to rinse your FridgeSmart Containers out with a vinegar and water solution. The addition of vinegar into the water reduces the pH within the container, preventing mold from growing. This trick works like a charm!

So organize your fridge with FridgeSmart Containers and save yourself a small fortune with all the food you save. Also, feel good about reducing waste and your contribution to the landfill!

Did you find these tips on storing produce and cheese helpful? Date a party with me and discover many more ideas on how to save time and money, while earning Free Tupperware and having fun with your family and friends. I look forward to hearing from you!

Chef Stuart's Starwberry Rhubarb Empanadas

Are you looking for new delicious recipes to use with your Empanada Maker? Try this one any time of the year with frozen fruit. And BTW, now is the time to pick up Tupperware Freezer Mate Containers to freeze your own fruit next season to have on hand to make these nutritious treats year round!

Chef Stuart's Strawberry Rhubarb Empanadas

Empanadas are personal-sized pastries filled with sweet or savory fillings.

Makes 6

2 cups rhubarb, cut into 1" pieces
1 cup strawberries, cut in half
½ cup sugar
½ tbsp. unsalted butter
1 packet store bought shortcrust pastry, thawed

Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C.

Place rhubarb, strawberries and sugar in your Thatsa® Bowl and mix well with a Saucy Silicone Spatula until sugar has coated the fruit. Heat an 11"/28 cm Frying Pan over low heat with unsalted butter. Place sugared fruit in the pan and cook until fruit breaks down into an almost chunky jelly, 15 – 20 minutes.
Set aside and let cool.

Using your Tupperware Rolling Pin, roll out crust to a ¼" thickness on your Tupperware Simply Perfect Pastry Sheet.

Open your Empanada Maker and using the back of it, press down on the dough making a perfect round cut out. Place cutout on top of ragged edge of the Empanada Maker.

Using a spoon scoop fruit filling into the center of the dough. Make sure you have ½ inch from the edge of the crust space available. Using cold water, wet your finger and run along the edge of the dough. Carefully close the Empanada Maker, trim any excess dough with a paring knife.

On a non-stick baking tray, bake for 25-30 minutes or until crust is golden.

Serve Empanadas on their own with a dusting of confectioner sugar, or with some Vanilla Frozen Yogurt.


• Let the preparation cool down before filling the empanadas.
• Use the Empanada Maker to cut and fill. This ensures the empanadas are always the same size.

Chef Stuart’s Cucumber and Green Pepper Quinoa

Quinoa is a gluten free grain making it the perfect food for those who cannot tolerate gluten so prevalent in wheat and many other grains. Quinoa seeds have a soap like coating called saponin, and even if they have been washed before you purchase them, they need to be thoroughly washed to remove any remaining residue. An effective method is to run cold water over quinoa that has been placed in a fine-meshed strainer, gently rubbing the seeds together with your hands. To ensure that the saponins have been completely removed, taste a few seeds. If they have a bitter taste, continue the rinsing process.

This recipe sounds so delicious that I have to make it for dinner!

Scroll down to read Tasting Notes for my comments on this recipe... Cheryll

Chef Stuart’s Cucumber and Green Pepper Quinoa

I love this grain because it is so versatile. It cooks faster than rice and it also is higher in protein than any other grain! It can be used in soups, salads and of course my favorite—stews! You can also substitute it any time rice is called for.

Serves 4


4 cups water
2 cups quinoa
1/2 tbsp. salt (use sea salt for added nutrition)
½ English cucumber, cut into 2" pieces
½ green bell pepper, quartered
1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Let’s cook!

1. Put water, quinoa and salt in Tupperware® Microwave Rice Maker and microwave for 13 minutes.

2. While the quinoa is cooking, put cucumber and green bell pepper in the Quick Chef with the blade using attachment and lightly turn the handle a few times to get a rough chop.

3. Remove cooked quinoa from the microwave and using the Double Colander, drain the quinoa.

4. Put quinoa, cucumber, bell pepper, red wine vinegar and olive oil in an 8 ¾-cup/2.1 L Wonderlier® Bowl and stir using Saucy Silicone Spatula until well combined. Season to taste.

Tasting Notes:

I have to say that I'm not much for microwave cooking, BUT I was so intrigued with the brand new Tupperware Rice Cooker and the preceding recipe that I had to try it. Well, was I amazed and impressed! I cooked the quinoa for 13 minutes and checked it after that. There was about an inch of water on top, but I didn't drain it right away with the idea that I wasn't quite ready with other dinner items and I would keep the quinoa hot. The Quick Chef did its usual fantastic job on the rough cut veggies, and when I went to combine all the ingredients, all the water in the quinoa had been absorbed! So I carried on with the recipe. Perhaps if I'd drained it right away it would have been a little more chewy, rather than soft, but you know, we enjoyed the dish thoroughly! It is definitely a candidate for more seasonings and herbs though, and it makes quite a lot for 4 servings, but I see the potential for the leftovers. Today I started my day with a couple of scrambled eggs, a little grated tasty cheese, a chopped ripe tomato, and a serving of leftover quinoa microwaved 'til warm. My goodness! It was so tasty! Use your leftovers any way you'd use rice. Try it and be pleasantly surprised!

You'll have to forgive me. I meant to take pictures along the way and totally forgot! Next time...

If you have a picture or comment to share, please do!

PS. Here it is March of 2011, and I've made this recipe countless times, serving it to many who have remarked on how delicious it is. As I mentioned above, the original recipe needs a little spicing up. The solution is to add a minced clove of garlic for each cup of Quinoa cooked. Most of the time I only cook 1 cup because the recipe makes quite a bit, and it is so easy and quick to cook that I'll cook a fresh batch.

So feel free to vary the ingredients you add, but the musts for this recipe are the garlic, red wine vinegar (double this too), and the sea salt.

We enjoyed it with salmon last night, and were fortunate to have leftovers to go with our scrambled eggs for breakfast!

Try it... you'll love it, and your Tupperware Rice Cooker! Wash up is a snap!

TupperLiving Tea & Blooming Teapot

I've really gotten hooked on Tupperware's new line of Teas, so much so, that I've virtually given up coffee! The line includes Black Darjeeling Tea, Madagascar Green Tea, Lemongrass Green Tea, and Blooming Tea, as well as Iced Teas - both Herbal and White Tea. The Tupperware Blooming Teapot is cute and practical. It is made of high quality glass - the same clear glass that laboratory test tubes are made from, so that you can watch your tea steep from dried leaves into an infusion of water, colour, and flavour.

Did you know that tea is the 2nd most popular beverage in the world, only behind water in consumption? Tea has become even more popular with the discovery that it is full of anti-oxidants that slow aging and prevent disease. Tupperware teas are extremely high quality and are very good value. Give them a try... soon you'll be enjoying them every day too!

Check out my Blooming Tea Pot. Today I placed fresh mint leave from my garden in it and poured in hot water just off the rolling boil, let it steep 3 minutes and poured it into cups. Note the beautiful colour of the infusion! Mmm... smells and tastes wonderful!

How to Store Tupperware!

It's true... I am surrounded by very cleaver people. You'll know what I mean when you see how one Tupperware lover stores her collection.

Amy has a great outdoor cupboard on the patio of her city home where she stores her outdoor and entertaining Tupperware, because that's where she uses it. It is handy for guests and especially children to help themselves, and it really reduces the traffic in and out of the house.

Thanks for sharing Amy!

Another Use for a Citrus Peeler!

I'm sure you have many uses for a Citrus Peeler that are not listed here, and I'd love it if you would add your comment here or send me an e-mail on what you have found it useful for. I've come up with one that I think is worthy of adding myself.

You know that very expensive anti-aging serum that we buy, hoping to delay the inevitable? Well, when I got down to the last pump I knew there was still some in there, and I wasn't about to sacrifice it. So, I got my husbands tools out and opened the container, and at the bottom was a little cream! I could have used a Q-Tip, but much of the cream would have been absorbed in the Q-Tip, so I grabbed my Citrus Peeler and rescued that valuable cream. I got another 3 days worth of use from it. Over time that'll save me thousands!

I hope you are enjoying your Citrus Peeler. If you don't have one, please let me know, and we'll figure out how to get one for you. It is a must have!

Darcy's Watermelon Feta Salad

Darcy recently hosted his 1st Tupperware Party... and a very successful party it was! The theme Darcy chose was a blender party of Pina Coladas and Strawberry Daiquiris, that paved the way for a tasty Salmon BBQ. One of the accompanyments was a refreshing Watermelon Salad that fit the warm August evening just right.

I made it for a recent dinner party and it got rave reviews, so I thought you might enjoy the simple recipe. Darcy served his salad in the watermelon bowl that was left after making melon balls with the contents and it looked super, but I love the way in looks in the Large Ice Prisms bowl too!

Darcy's Watermelon Feta Salad

6 cups of watermelon cubes
3-4 oz. Feta Cheese, cubed
1/2 red onion cut into fine rings (I forgot to add it to my salad!)

3 T mint chopped
1/4 cup basil
juice of 1/2 lime

Gently mix all ingredients together and chill until serving time.
