Tyffyn FAQs

Tyffyn Product Questions

  • Can food be kept warm for 4-6 hours in Vaya Tyffyn?

    Yes, our Tyffyns our designed to retain warmth of food for longer duration, thereby keeping food fresh for consumption. The 600 ml retains warmth for 4-5 hours whereas the 1000 ml retains warmth for 5-6 hours. On both the variants, on an average the food will be around 45 degree C at the end of 5 hours if you pack it at 70 degree C. If you pack the food hotter (boiling hot from the stove), the Tyffyn performs better. The earlier you consume the food, the warmer it is. 
    The Tyffyn is an interactive product – the better you treat it, the better it performs for you. Please click on this video to learn how to best retain heat in your Vaya Tyffyn.

  • What can I carry in my Tyffyn?

    Tyffyn was designed to keep your food hot or cold, depending on your needs. It was not designed to carry both hot and cold food at the same time.

    Tyffyn is especially well suited for moist, dense, hot food. Ideal for all curries, dhal, rice, roti, idli/dosa, biriyani, kebabs, tikkas, rasam rice, chowders, mashed potatoes, lasagna, gnocchi, baked pasta, minestrone, moule, tofu, rice, ratatouille, cream of vegetables, dumplings etc. 

    Tyffyn is also very suitable for cold food, such as salads, tofu, yogurt, ice cream, fruit, cheese, cold noodles, gazpacho, potato salad, rice salad, cole slaw, deviled eggs, jello, sushi etc.

  • Is it OK to put my Tyffyn in the refrigerator or in a freezer?

    Cooling down the inner containers before placing food into them (especially ice cream) would help keeping your food cold longer. There is no need to cool down your Tyffyn’s outer shell. Placing it in the freezer could actually tamper with the vacuum insulated seal and damage your Tyffyn.

  • Can I put my Tyffyn in a microwave oven?

    Neither the Tyffyn outer shell, nor the inner containers are designed for use in a microwave oven. Placing them in a microwave oven could seriously damage both of them and the appliance.

  • Can I use my Tyffyn’s inner containers on a stove?

    Your Tyffyn and inner containers are not designed for food preparation or cooking. Placing any of them in direct contact with fire or a heating element will result in permanent damage. For e.g., in steamers, cookers & woks.

  • Can I use my Tyffyn to keep food cold?

    Your Tyffyn’s vacuum insulated shell is equally efficient in keeping your food cold, as it is in keeping it hot. When food is stored with a starting temperature between 4 to 7 C straight from the fridge will typically be at the following when placed at room temperature of 21 C:

    • After 4 hrs – 10 to 12 C
    • After 6 hrs – 12 to 14 C
  • How do I clean my Tyffyn?

    We recommend hand-cleaning your Tyffyn with a mild detergent and a damp cloth. Never soak the base and outer shell, nor place them under running water, these parts are not dishwasher-safe. The inner containers are instead dishwasher safe (up to 60C), or can also be washed by hand. Never scrub your Tyffyn or inner containers. Never use a solvent, or a cleaner containing chlorine, or water with heavy mineral content as this may ruin the finish of your Tyffyn.

  • How do I store my Tyffyn?

    After cleaning your Tyffyn (see earlier FAQ), store it open in a dry cool place. Also keep the lids off the inner containers to prevent the formation of bacteria, mold or unpleasant odors.

  • Will my Tyffyn sweat?

    Condensation may form inside the inner shell due to the cooling of steam produced by the hot food. While removing the shell, be careful that condensation doesn’t accidentally drip on clothes or furniture. While you enjoy your meal, placing the shell upside down will prevent dripping while providing a safe, clean place to keep the lids of your inner containers.
