Sterilite Boxes from CVS
« on: September 26, 2010, 11:31:27 PM »
Went down to my local CVS store and found these guys.... I think they would make great dough boxes.

http://www.sterilite.com/SelectProduct.html?id=474&view=0&picture=1&tab=Specifications&ProductCategory=250&section=1

I bought one at $4.00 and they come with a locking lid, are about 3" H x 14" L x 11" wide. The box is also stackable and should fit in even a smaller fridge. I'm sure they can hold up to four doughballs at 300gr - 350gr each.

If you have a CVS in your area go check them out in the aisle of storage & home stuff...

Hey Mikey,
I don't think that the plastic is food grade.

used the same plastic totes (albeit larger) for holding par cooked wings and i didn't have an issue in 11 months of using them

Not to mention they stink, and I wouldn't want that odor to permeate my dough.

The proofing boxes made of food grade materials at restaurant supply places aren't all that expensive and they're worth it for the safety of your family, and in the prevention in off smells/flavors.

Not foood grade for sure.  I bought the new half sized doughmates from madden plastics and they are awesome.  I'll never go back to glad containers.  I bought an extra lid,  so that i can have one tray out at a time.  Also they fit in my fridge perfect.  -marc

I sent Mike a pm as well as a voice message at his office & never heard back. I guess he's not interested in my business.

You're right. I didn't even think of that.  :-[

Oh well, they were only 4 bucks so it's not going to break the bank.

Matt,  I am suprised by that.  The online ordering is active now.  Give thenm another chance,   everyonne drops the ball now and again.  the quality is way high in them.  no need to use any oild on the dough either,  the seal is really good  no skin up to a week...  -marc

Hey Marc,
The reason that I was trying to contact him is because I wasn't able to check out online.  You can't check out without entering a zip code & being from Canada my postal code didn't work.   I gave him 2 chances;  A week had lapsed between between the PM & voicemail.  I didn't here back so I decided to take my business elsewhere.

They may not be food grade, but those are the boxes I use for my dough.
