Aladdin introduced the Collapsible Salad Set at the International Housewares Show. The set consists of a collapsible plastic salad bowl, a strainer, and three leak-proof containers to transport salad dressing and salad toppings. The company representative said that research with women found that they many frustrations about lunch. One issue: women wanted to eat more salad at lunchtime but did not like the existing storage containers. This set allows women to take a big salad with multiple toppings (just like at restaurants) to work but carry home a much smaller container for the bus/train trip home.

The Box Appetit was designed by black+blum in London. The box comes
with an inner dish, a sauce pot for dressing, and a fork/knife. The
clear lid has a sauce dipping area for sushi. The product is made of
Eastman Chemical's Tritan and is dishwasher and microwave-safe (for up
to two minutes).
Disclosure: I received a sample from the Eastman Chemical booth.
