How to save money at your favorite beverage outlet

Consumers can save up to 25 percent at some of the nation’s largest beverage outlets by purchasing one of these reusable glass containers that store food and beverage.

The reusable glass beverage dispensers are the perfect solution for the new year.

The cups and spoons have a built-in lid that will seal with a sealant.

This makes them perfect for serving to guests and customers during parties and events.

Here’s how to use one of the reusable glass dispensers to make your own festive cup of tea.

1.

Wash your hands and utensils thoroughly before using a reusable glass container.

This includes your utensil and any utensile components.

Use the plastic cup holder from the disposable cup holder or use a large paper towel to wipe your hands down.

You can also use a soft tissue to wipe the side of the cup.

2.

Place the reusable plastic cup in a bowl.

The glass container will not hold up to the heat and humidity of a traditional mug, so you can safely use a non-stick spatula to help keep the lid on. 3.

Place a plastic or aluminum mug on top of the glass container and use a metal spatula or tongs to lift the lid of the container.

Keep the lid firmly in place by sliding the lid back and forth.

4.

Use a small plastic cup or spatula in a small dish to place the beverage into the reusable container.

The container will hold about a half-cup of liquid.

5.

To open the lid, place the lid in the top of your bowl and gently press the lid into the cup or bowl.

If the lid doesn’t fully seal, gently squeeze the cup to open the door.

6.

Open the lid and place the cup back into the bowl to close it.

Use your spoon or a toothpick to gently push the beverage to the sides of the bowl and back into place.

The bowl will be completely empty once the lid is in place.

7.

The plastic cup can also be used to hold a small portion of fruit or vegetables for a meal.

8.

Store food in the bowl in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

9.

When you need to serve food, open the bottom lid and use the spatula and fork to scrape the contents of the beverage container.

You don’t have to worry about food getting into the container as the lid will still stay on. 10.

Fill the bowl with ice or use an ice cube tray to fill the bowl.

Keep it covered with plastic wrap until ready for serving.

11.

Use any of the disposable cups or spoons to pour a cup of soup or soup broth.

The stainless steel cups or spoon should be filled with at least 2 tablespoons of soup, but you can use up to 1 cup of water.

12.

Place your cup in the microwave to heat it.

The microwave will warm up the water, so make sure you use the same amount of water as you used for the cup you are using.

13.

Serve warm with a spoonful of sour cream, chopped nuts, and a dollop of butter or honey.

It will keep in the fridge for up to a week.

14.

The disposable cups and spoon can be used for making an ice cream sundae or an ice-cream dessert.

15.

Use one of each disposable cup to serve to guests or customers.

16.

Use an aluminum or plastic bowl to hold the container in the dishwasher or other dishwasher safe location.

17.

For best results, pour a few cups of the liquid from a disposable cup into a pot or bowl and boil until the liquid is clear.

It should take about 15 minutes.

18.

Pour the remaining liquid into a cup and add ice, nuts, or honey if desired.

19.

Place food into the cups and pour into the dish, then use the spoon to scoop the food into individual servings. 20. Enjoy!
