Food containers are typically made of different varieties of hard plastic or glass. Tupperware is a common high-end brand of container that has been on the market for a long time. Tupperware states that since 2010 they have not sold items containing BPA, but that suggests their products manufactured before 2010 contained BPA. Regrettably, these products should probably be discarded. While BPA has been taken out of many plastics due to consumer demand, it has unfortunately been replaced in some instances with Bisphenol S (BPS) or Bisphenol F (BPF), both of which can affect the body’s endocrine system, just as BPA does. Studies show that BPS is found in 81% of random human blood samples tested. Just as with water bottles, food storage containers that are labeled “BPA-free” may indeed be free of BPA, but this doesn’t mean they are BPS-free or BPF-free or safe from other potentially toxic additives and compounds.

We purchased a set of beautiful copper pots and pans from him. The oversized pans were seemingly perfect for cooking and serving large groups of people. My wife and I both loved the rustic look of the cookware. Read More
