Vaya Tyffyn is the latest product to hit the shelves from the home of the brand Vaya which had a grand launch party on the 19th of August, 2016 at the ITC Gardenia, Bangalore. Here, I will cover details about the launch as well as a personal review of the Vaya Tyffyn.

Product Launch party

The event itself was very wonderfully organised, I must say, right from the moment I walked into ITC Gardenia to the moment I left for home with my Vaya Tyffyn in hand.

Aniketh, my point of contact for this launch, has proved to be a wonderful person and organiser from the word ‘go’.


Always a pleasure to put a face to a name and that’s what blogger meets do, right? Connect you across networks. Met my old favourites, Vidya and Rachna, of course as well as new friends like Raksha Kamat.

The stage was set for a fun and informative session that would introduce us to the Vaya Tyffyn.

Although the launch party was running an hour late, the event itself more than made up for the delay with amazing dance performances as well as a stand-up sketch by comedian Karthik Kumar.

The presentation by the CEO of Vaya, Mr. Vasisht Vasanthakumar was on point, well packaged and covered all the key features of the Vaya Tyffyn.

Review of Vaya Tyffyn

Coming now to the review of the product itself, I’d chosen the wool design Vaya Tyffyn for myself since I knew my daughter would fall in love with the purple shade and I wasn’t wrong either.

Key features of Vaya Tyffyn


  1. It comes in 3 stainless steel finishes: Graphite, Maple and Wool
  2. The containers are copper finished with leak-proof rubber lids.
  3. The carrier has steel clasps.
  4. The box must be used in conjunction with the carry bag for it to retain heat to maximum effectiveness.

What I loved about Vaya Tyffyn



  • The pre-heating process, which involves adding hot water to the boxes and then adding the food reminded me of the care that a mom takes to ensure her child has good food.

  • I packed her food in the three containers provided, using one for breakfast and the other two to pack her lunch. The quantity of each (1 400 ml box and 2 300 ml boxes) was perfect for my daugher.


  • I loved the leak-proof lids which lived up to their name completely!

  • The sleek and snazzy bag which my daughter found extremely comfortable to carry with her to school.

  • The bag which doubles up as a mat complete with cutlery pouch.
  • The steel clasps on the outside of the Tyffyn that reminded me of my own childhood tiffin carriers. They are easy to clasp and unclasp, so that’s a big bonus.
  • The fact that the food stayed piping hot, 3 hours after I’d packed them in the box.

What could have been better

  • The food in my Vaya Tyffyn did not stay hot after 6 hours but did stay warm. I believe this may have been an issue with the piece that I was given because other users mentioned that the food remained hot even at 1 pm, when packed at 6 am.
  • The weight of the Tyffyn itself is rather bulky but you don’t feel it as such if you use the carry bag.


I’d recommend Vaya as a great product worth the buy, since it ticks a lot of boxes that a person would look for in a lunch carrier: Leak-proof containers, portability, sleekness and its compact nature. I especially would like to commend Vaya for their openness to customer feedback and working actively on improvement.

I remember seeing the pictures and this review is very balanced. Something that keeps the food hot and looks good to carry is a good combination. 🙂

    Shailaja · October 16, 2016 at 6:54 pm

    Thank you, Parul 🙂 I try to always provide a balanced review since it’s something I’d expect myself when I read reviews by other people. So glad you liked it. It’s definitely worth the buy although it’s a bit pricey but it’s a long-term investment.

The product clicks the other boxes but does not deliver on the promise of piping hot food that l tried with 2 Tyffyns. How was your experience with the replacement? My replacement still only keeps the food barely warm after 6 hours. The husband refuses to take it.

    Same experience. I told the company too. Maybe they need to figure out what the fault is in some of the boxes. Gy loves the box actually. So no worries on that front.

Purba · October 18, 2016 at 4:58 pm

Phew, that’s a lot of compartments to fill! But I quite liked the pouch for the cutlery.

    Shailaja · October 18, 2016 at 5:40 pm

    Thanks Purba! Yes, it’s quite handy, really. Plus the kid finds it very convenient to carry.

Bought it…pros: expensive look. 2)good shape.
Cons: very heavy even when empty. Not suitable for those who travel in buses and autos. Or walk a lot to office.
2) plastic lids makes it equal to other plastic boxes defeating the very purpose.
3) metal boxes are very thin.makes lot of tin noise.
Conclusion. : many many improvements need to be done. Thnx
Best regards
