When you own a foodservice company, it’s paramount to have the proper food storage containers for better organization and to keep the delicious foods you prepare fresh. If you are responsible for stocking food storage containers at a hotel or buffet restaurant, you may also need plenty of self-serve options, containers that keep food safe yet still allow guests to serve themselves with ease. At Sam’s Club®, we have the best heavy-duty storage containers and more lightweight options for every need in the business, all at the lowest prices possible.
What are the Best Plastic Containers with Lids?
Plastic containers with lids are an essential part of most commercial kitchens, helping you easily store meals and food prep items with ease and security. Our selection of plastic containers and lids by Carlisle® are both fantastically affordable as well as useful for many uses. They come in square and round shapes and sizes ranging from 2-quarts to 22. As well as being dishwasher safe, these durable plastic food containers have easy-grip handles that help prevent drops and spills.
When you need deeper plastic containers and lids that serve even more culinary functions, you can’t go wrong with those by Cambro®. Many of these can withstand temperatures of -40° to 160°, meaning you can use them to store foods in the freezer without worrying about them shattering and ladle soups and sauces into the containers not long after they’re cooked to serve later. Many of Cambro’s plastic containers with lids are made of sturdy polycarbonate and are NSF certified.
Lidded plastic containers also make some of the best pantry storage containers, providing a secure closure to help simply and safely store liquids and solids in pantries, fridges and freezers.
