When I read the word rantang in this article I instantly thought, before I continued reading further, that this may be an Indonesian word. Maybe I got used on some Indonesian words while reading friends' posts. My friends Teresia and Dirk probably heard of it. It's a portable food container, called a rantang in Indonesian. Three stacking bowls keep food separated, and a handle makes them easy to carry. It's made of ceramic and recycled teak wood. I like the traditional look of the design, it's simplicity and the materials they used to make it.

    😀 WOW! … Mira … I love that Rantang, even if I didn't know this term … in German it's called "Henkelmann" … but only older people use this term at all … in times of fast food hardly anyone would come up with this … 'though in Asia it's more popular … I know about the thing called "Bento" in Japanese cooking … that's similar to this …:up: but this special "Rantang" is something I wopuld like to have for myself, even if I wouldn't get to use it so many times … it just looks good, perfect design … and the link you put there is worth to spend a lot of time there 😀

    Mira, Yes I do know about Rantang. It is not so popular anymore as a daily needs. People used to use it to take food to rice fields for the family. Now People use Rantang on a very special occasion, such as for Kendurian or delivering food for their relatives. They are easy to handle. They are made of Plastics, and some kinds of metal. They have many model and I never see people use wooden Rantang.Here are more pictures of rantang that you can find in Indonesia, except which is made of Bamboo

    Metal versions are very popular amongst the Muslim/Hindu communities here in South Africa! Of course, any food container, especially the plastic common variety, is called a 'skaftin' (pronounced, 'scuff-teen') around here! :yes:.
