On-the-go snacks and lunches just got a whole lot easier thanks to Consol’s Jar in a Jar. The clever space-saving design of this new product sets it apart from other lunch and food containers by keeping everything you want separate, but together. The two jars of different sizes go together like salad and dressing or chips and dip and are the perfect travel companion to work, on holiday or even on a picnic.

Essentially two jars of different sizes fit one inside the other; the larger (500ml or 1L) jars accommodate a smaller (100ml) jar. The jars share a lid, which when closed, holds them securely together as a singular container – simplifying both storage and transportation. Genius isn’t it?

Perfect for soup and croutons, pap and gravy, salad and a creamy dressing, fruit salad and yoghurt – there are plenty of meals where some of the ingredients are best kept separate until just prior to serving. Now with the Consol Jar in a Jar there’s no need to limit the defining elements of a dish, nor the gourmet garnish. No more soggy salads and no compromise when it comes to taste or texture while eating on the run; every meal can be enjoyed as it was intended.

Consol jar

From meals at the office, to picnics, school lunches, trips to the beach, and snacks on the run, the Consol Jar in a Jar is the ideal two-in-one container to store elements of a meal separately but together. Not limited to food, it also has a definite place in a nursery where dummies can be stored hygienically together with the gripe water in a sterile environment. They are also ideal for storing stationery and crafting materials, as well as sprinkles, cupcake casings and other baking essentials.

The new range will be sold individually and the frosted lids come standard in four colours: blue, green, light coral and white. The jars and lids are dishwasher safe but avoid cleaning with abrasives. They will crack if exposed to extreme heat or cold and should not therefore be stored in a freezer, nor heated in an oven or in a microwave. They are not suitable for carbonated products

The larger 1L jars retail from R42.90 while the smaller 500ml option is priced from R32.90. The Jar in a Jar is available at The Consol Shop Woodmead and Stellenbosch, as well as through various leading retailers.
