perforated box / take away box

Although a takeout box is a convenient disposable box that serves to takeout food, fast food, and remainder of diners’ meal, it also puts people in a dilemma: what they do when they have both cold foods such as salads and fruits, and foods that need to be re-heated such as chicken wings? Nobody would want to eat neither chicken that has gone cold nor salads that are heated. And what if some small-eaters want to eat only the half of food in the box? Finding an extra plate and separating foods are hassles that this perforated box can easily solve.

All one has to do is tear off a desirable section following the perforated line.
