Description
Stackable containers for foods, e.g., tea and coffee. Stack the containers on top of each other; only the top container has a lid, which is easy to remove and replace; not a screw top lid. Available in various sizes.

Users comments
Susanne can easily remove the lid and the individual containers using both hands. This avoids damage to her teeth, which she otherwise has to use when opening packages.
