    topped-off

    Hi,

    I have googled the term "topped-off", but couldn't find the suitable meaning for the following context, could anyone help me out?

    Thank you very much.

    "He pulls open the door of the refrigerator and scans the gleaming contents. Dozens of topped-off plastic, paper, and cardboard containers of ready-to-eat food -- potato salad, macaroni and cheese, beef stew, lamb stew, curried chicken, fried chicken, pork dumplings,etc."

    Re: topped-off

    When you "top off" a container you add to the contents to make it completely full.
