    Lightbulb Use care...

    I see this sentence on my oatmeal packaging.

    Use care when removing cereal from microwave; bowl may be hot.


    Here, is "Use care" a set phrase or imperative sentence in which "care" means some kind of glove. You should use "care" when you take out the bowl?
    How should I comprehend it!
    Thanks!

    And, what is "pantry pack"?
    For a convenient pantry pack, press in and pull up along perforation on back of box to remove flap.

    Use care when removing cereal from microwave; bowl may be hot.
    Here, "care" is a noun as per definition #2 in this link.
    care: http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/us...n_english/care
    So, "use care" means to pay attention to doing something in a way that avoids damage or risk – in this case burning your fingers.

    For a convenient pantry pack, press in and pull up along perforation on back of box to remove flap.
    I assume these instructions show you how to set up the box so it makes a suitable pack for storing the cereal in your pantry.

    Re: Use care...

    You see if I am right in understanding "pantry pack"
    It's more like a “family pack” or "wholesale pack", especially when there are individual small packs included in a larger packaging.
    For example,

    Then, why is the below also called a pantry pack?

    Re: Use care...

    Why don't you follow the directions on your oatmeal box to see what they mean by "pantry pack?"

    A "pantry" is where you store food.

    Re: Use care...

    halbert, the 'pantry pack' question is also under discussion here.

    We recommend posting a question on one forum only initially. If you do not get a satisfactory answer from that forum and you feel that you have exhausted its possibilities, then of course trying a different forum might help. It is only courteous however, to tell the second forum that you have already asked the question on another forum and then give a precis of the answers you received there, along with an explanation of why you are now looking elsewhere.
