Perfect Size Containers
    #4280019 - 06/10/05 02:57 PM (13 years, 17 days ago)

i think i found a really good size container.  the plastic containers that walmart sells 5 lb's of ground meat in.    does anybody know who sells these empty containers :confused:?...  i would like to see if they make the same ones in black.

i'll get a pic tonight. they are opaque white (not clear but they still let light in. and on the bottom it has 'cryovac' imprinted. the rough dimensions are about 8.5" x 11" x bout 3 or 3.5" deep (the perfect size for a tub) they are used to package stuff and they seal them by heating up plastic to stick to the top.

But I also like the white dishpans from walmart...99 cents a peice..



Here you can see both at work:

The ones I picture, are the gladware ones...they are very shallow...but you can fit about 1 3/4" poo and 1/2" casing layer, and its right up to the top. Works fine.

The chinese food place, gives us out takeout in them :smile: they are a little deeper, gotta get the food for it though :smile:
