The DALCINI™ Stainless Story
DALCINI™ Stainless is the creation of Nita Tandon, a health conscious and practical mom looking for durable, chemical-free food containers that are easy to use, easy to clean, easy to store and easy on the environment.
When Nita became a mom, she remembers her home slowly filling with plastic. Toys, snack containers, dishes. With her background in health and a keen interest in science, she was particularly concerned with Bisphenol A (BPA), a known hormone disruptor found in plastics, sealants, and resins. She was also concerned with the "BPA-free" versions that substitute BPA for BPS and BPF, 2 lesser-known hormone disruptors that research has found is no safer. (UCLA 2016), (UCalgary 2015)
In 2009, after an extensive scientific review, Health Canada banned the use of BPA in baby bottles. In 2012, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a similar ban, adding sippy cups and baby formula to the list. Both countries conceded that rapidly growing bodies (fetus, infants, and kids) are most at risk of health consequences of BPA. The bans were an excellent first step in protecting the most vulnerable. But what about all the other products that still use BPA or BPA-free plastics. Nita thought, children needed to be protected, but why stop there, couldn't everyone benefit from ingesting fewer chemicals? Couldn't the world benefit from using less plastic? This was Nita's impetus for change.
While Nita's motivation was for health reason, equally important was the need for durable, easy maintenance containers. Tired of all the warped, stained, cracked and retained odors of plastic and the "hand wash only", "wash seals and inserts separately", "dishwasher -top rack only" cleaning instructions, Nita was inspired to create durable, easy maintenance food containers. Make them strong enough for kids, sophisticated enough for adults.
DALCINI™ Stainless was launched in 2015 and are the proud makers of high-grade, non-leaching, dishwasher safe stainless steel food containers.
