TUPPERWARE'S NEW MEALS IN MINUTES MICROSTEAMER MAKES DINNER FOR TWO IN
 LESS THAN 10 MINUTES; HOTTEST SELLING TUPPERWARE BRAND PRODUCT '93
 KISSIMMEE, Fla., May 26 /PRNewswire/ -- For today's whirlwind schedules that don't often allow sufficient time for home cooked meals, Tupperware has a solution -- Meals in Minutes(TM) microsteamer -- the latest in Tupperware's line of products for the microwave.
 Introduced exclusively through independent Tupperware consultants this year, the Meals in Minutes(TM) microsteamer became the fastest- selling Tupperware(R) brand product of 1993 in just 12 weeks.
 Imagine preparing nutritious and delicious meals for one or two, like Italian Chicken and Rice or Shrimp and Linguini in less than 10 minutes in a single container that doubles as a serving dish. From microwave to table to dishwasher, it's simply one-step with the Meals in Minutes(TM) microsteamer.
 The three-piece Meals in Minutes(TM) microsteamer includes a 1 1/2- quart dish, a removable colander, and a cover, all in an attractive mesa red. The microsteamer's flexible design enables it to go from microwave steaming to table to dishwasher.
 The microsteamer can steam an entire meal in one step and utilizes a microwave oven and steam to do the job.
 First, place water/liquids, flavorings and other ingredients (usually rice, pasta or potatoes) in the dish. Next, add other ingredients (such as chicken and vegetables) to the colander and place onto the dish. Cover the microsteamer, place in the microwave and steam on 100 percent power for 3-8 minutes, depending on the recipe. As the microwaves heat the liquids in and around the food, the snugly fitting cover traps and concentrates the steam. The colander allows juices and flavors to flow freely. The result is a delicious, healthy meal -- just add a salad, a whole-grain roll, fresh fruit and enjoy.
 "If the demand by American consumers for this product is any indication, the Meals in Minutes(TM) microsteamer is an idea whose time has definitely come," said Tim Coffey, Tupperware's director, New Products. "Today's busy family eats differently than those of a generation ago. Many family members eat dinner at different times. In addition, more mothers are working and there is less time to cook. Families need faster, easier ways to make a home-cooked meal -- and the microsteamer answers that need."
 According to Coffey, frozen dinners are one of the fastest-growing food segments because they offer the ultimate in convenience. But consumers often sacrifice freshness and taste, and pay a premium for that convenience. "With Tupperware's Meals in Minutes(TM) microsteamer, consumers how have an alternative that offers it all -- one-step, time- saving, nutritious, delicious, easy-to-prepare meals that cost less and taste better than frozen dinners," Coffey added.
 Each Meals in Minutes(TM) microsteamer comes with "Fresh Food Fast," a free recipe booklet of simple, one-step and flavorful recipes including Italian Chicken and Rice, Beef Fajitas and Dill-Flavored Fish with Rice. Like Sweet and Sour Chicken and Rice, which is made using quick-cooking rice, skinless, boneless chicken breasts, two vegetables, soy and sweet and sour sauces, garlic and pepper, all recipes require only a handful of cost-conscious ingredients and are very easy to prepare.
 In addition to preparing complete meals, the microsteamer is ideal for reheating leftovers and steaming vegetables.
 Nutrition information and food exchanges (based on the system developed by the American Dietetic Association and the American Diabetes Association) are offered for each recipe.
 The microsteamer is made from an exclusive Tupperware(R) material created to tolerate microwave steaming temperatures and bring previously cooked foods up to serving temperature. This material is scratch and stain resistant.
 The suggested retail price for the Meals in Minutes(TM) microsteamer is $17.50, including the three-piece microsteamer and the seven-recipe booklet.
 Like all other Tupperware(R) brand products, the Meals in Minutes(TM) microsteamer is guaranteed by Tupperware against chipping, cracking, breaking or peeling under normal non-commercial use for the lifetime of the product.
 The Meals in Minutes(TM) microsteamer is only available from independent Tupperware consultants. Call toll-free 800-858-7221 for the franchised Tupperware distributor nearest you, or look in the White Pages under Tupperware.
