Instant Buckle / Buckle

Instant Buckle

When we pour hot water into the cup of instant noodles, there is hot steam coming out if we not close the top properly. It can cause the noodle not cooking well and still rare. We usually used the book or heavy objects to put on top of the cup, but it will be the problem if we don’t have a book nearby. “Instant Buckle” is designed to prevent this problem. It is a buckle which can seal the top tightly and prevent loosing hot steam. We don’t worry about finding heavy objects to press the cap. “Instant Buckle” is small land easy to carry.
