Shmeal containers and cutlery
Preparing meals for people is tough. There are a million things to think about – portion sizes, ingredient lists, timing everything just right.
So to make life easier for Shmeal cooks, we’ve decided to supply all the packaging you’ll need to share meals on Shmeal, free of charge.
In this post we’ll talk a little bit about how we plan to provide containers and cutlery to Shmeal cooks, and take a look at some of the container options we’re considering.
Option one: the bagasse bowl
This bowl has a beautiful light brown color and a great shape for serving and eating.
It’s made from a material called bagasse [pronounced “buh-gas”]. Bagasse is a renewable resource made from sugarcane pulp. It’s compostable and normally breaks down in under 90 days.
The lid is plastic and recyclable.
The one weakness of the bagasse bowl is that it’s not ideal for holding hot liquids. That’s why we’ll also be offering a second option for soup…
Option two: soup container.
We’re still in the process of selecting a soup container, but this one is one of our favorites.
These containers are perfect for serving hot soups, stews, chilis, or really any Shmeal that contains hot liquid.
This container is also 32oz. It has a nice bright white color and has a bit of a resemblance to the soup containers used by the Soup Nazi.
These containers are perfect for jumbalaya or mullagatawney.
Containers will come with a Shmeal sticker on them. The sticker gives the cook a space to write something, like the name of the Shmeal or a message to the person eating it.
We’ll also be offering Plantware forks and spoons. They have a sexy off-white color, and a nice mouthfeel.
When cooks are approved to use the app, we’ll provide them with some containers and cutlery to start out. When cooks need more containers, they’ll submit a request in the app, and we’ll deliver more containers to their homes, free of charge.
We’re super excited to give these containers to our cooks. With this packaging, you’ll be able to serve a wide variety of delicious foods.
I think the food is going to look awesome. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
