22-Ounce Soup Mug

Microwaveable plastic containers holds a large can of soup

I had been looking for a way to heat soup at work for lunch without splattering soup in the microwave, plus being able to carry it without spilling. I don’t know if the Sistema 656 ml Soup Mug counts as a tool, but it certainly accomplishes both. It has a snap-on top with a small vent hole that can be opened and closed. You open it while in the microwave to allow steam to escape but the soup doesn’t splurt out. You can then close it to keep the soup warm longer and so you don’t spill it while carrying it. It has a cup handle rather than being a bowl which takes away the need for a hot pad.
