How do I look after my Tupperware products?

How do I look after my Tupperware products?

We’re glad you asked! Tupperware Brand products are guaranteed for a lifetime of beauty and service with minimum care. Follow these simple steps for best results:


Tupperware Brand products purchased after September 1979, can be safely washed in the dishwasher (except for products outlined in ‘hand wash list following’). When loading the dishwasher;
  • Wash Seals and containers together.
  • Place Tupperware Brand products securely on the top shelf of the dishwasher where the water will not force them loose. They will melt or warp if they touch the heating elements.
  • For stains - use a baking soda paste.

Please hand wash these products:
  • TupperChef™ Knives and Scissors
  • Clear Mates
  • Alegra Products
  • All metal components
  • TupperChef Spatula
  • Tupperware Utensils
  • Twistable Peeler
  • Any other Tupperware Brand products purchased before September 3rd, 1979.

When you hand wash:
  • Use warm soapy water and a soft cloth or sponge.
  • Dry with a soft towel, or air-dry away from direct heat.
  • Avoid any abrasives (even baking soda) on these items as abrasives will dull the finish or leave scratches.
  • TupperChef™ Knives and all other metal components must be dried immediately to avoid rust.

Storing food in Tupperware

Cool hot liquids that contain fat before you place them in Tupperware Brand containers. Soups, sauces, oils, or cooking grease can get hot enough to damage and stain the containers.
When you use Tupperware Brand containers to store hot beverages, let the liquid cool before handling the container.


TupperWave® products are guaranteed for use up to 180° Celsius. Unless stated, Tupperware products are not guaranteed for use in microwave ovens. Food, particularly those high with fat or sugar content, become very hot and could cause the product to warp or melt.
Excluding the TupperWave® range, TupperChef™ baking range and UltraPro™ range, we do not guarantee Tupperware Brand products for use as microwave cookware.
The TupperWave product line is guaranteed for a lifetime of cooking when you use and care for it properly. Use the following guidelines for TupperWave cookware.
Do not use TupperWave products:
  • In the conventional oven.
  • Under the grill.
  • On the stove.
  • In convection microwave ovens with convection settings.
  • Always use a pot holder to handle containers after cooking in the microwave.
  • TupperWave products are not recommended for cooking popcorn.
  • Avoid cooking small amounts of food high in fat and sugar.

Reheating food in Tupperware reheatable products

Use reheatable products in the microwave oven on medium power (50%-60%), not high.
Do not use reheatable products:
  • In the conventional oven.
  • Under the grill.
  • On the stove.
  • In convection microwave ovens with convection settings.
  • Do not use containers in the microwave with Tupperware classic Seal applied.
  • Tupperware reheatable containers are designed for reheating only, not for cooking.
  • Reheating tomato-based sauces and foods may cause staining as a result of natural food colourants found in many vegetables.
  • Always use the a pot holder to handle containers after reheating in the microwave.
  • If overheating occurs, allow container to cool before handling.
  • We recommend avoiding foods high in fat or sugar content as they reach higher temperatures very quickly and may cause damage to your containers.

Storing Food in Tupperware® and Reheatable Products

Allow food to cool before you apply Seal.
If the Seal seems too tight, place it in hot water for a few minutes, dry thoroughly, then apply to container while the Seal is still warm.

Cleaning Tupperware and Reheatable Products

Wash containers and Seals in the dishwasher or in hot, soapy water (Seal on top rack only). If some food residue is hard to remove, soak container in hot soapy water (¼ cup detergent to 1 cup warm water).
For persistent stains, use one of the following:
  • Non-scratch cleaner.
  • Non-scratch pad.

If food burns onto the container, soak immediately with a solution of 4 tablespoons dishwasher detergent in 5 Litre hot water for at least 2 hours.


It is important to know that only products with Classic Round Seals and Clear Mate Seals are liquid-tight. If liquid is stored in containers with any other type of Seal, the containers should always be placed in an upright position.
