I just checked the bootom of these containers and found the triangular shaped arrows encircling the number 5 with the letters PP below.These containers appear to be polypropylene, and here is what I came up with:<5>PP (polypropylene) has high tensile strength, making it ideal for use in caps and lids that have to hold tightly on to threaded openings. Because of its high melting point, polypropylene can be hot-filled with products designed to cool in bottles, including ketchup and syrup. It is also used for products that need to be incubated, such as yogurt. Many Cambo, Tupperware and Rubbermaid food storage containers are made from PP. Examples: Bottle caps, take-out food containers, drinking strawsThanks Bill for raising the flag, but it appears as though these will be safe to use. John K
I think you would be hard pressed to find any item at WalterWorld that is made from the "bad" plastic.Think....about all those terribly cute babies one see's at WW slobbering and sucking on something plastic while cruising around in their baby seats.Oh, to be young again and have babies....
Maybe it is, maybe it isn't, but in any case, I don't know why you would want to create a liability for yourself by suggesting it is safe when you have no idea if it is or not?
Exactly my point; Walmart's lawyers/buyers want to be double sure that any product in the house is safe. No matter how much you slobber on it, no? They take the "maybe" out of the equation.
No, I'm talking about Chicago Bob creating a liability for Chicago Bob by speaking out of his rear end. It's like waving someone on at an intersection. You should never do it.

Bob,I'm sure that Wal-Mart does not want to sell something that is knowingly harmful when used for its intended purpose, or might be the subject of a recall, but otherwise it can't spend its time worrying about every possible harm that a product might cause. For those cases, Wal-Mart would rely on indemnity by its suppliers in the event someone sues or threatens to sue Wal-Mart for a perceived harm resulting from use of any product sold by Wal-Mart. Every supplier agreement will have indemnity provisions. Even a supplier might be spared liability if a product is used for other than its intended purpose.Peter
I bet the artisan trays by DoughMate / Madan plastics would fit nicely and the work beautifully 5 275 g work best but I do 6 250 g I can get em quick ! John
John, I love your idea of using your wine cooler for proofing. I use small plastic container for individual dough ball, which I got from Walmart , they are stackable, and food grade.
John,Pls give dimensions (and costs) for those! I cant go past 16 x 13 on the L x W Prefer 3 on the height.ThanksJohn K
JConk,I am unable to PM you re: the dough trays. If anyone is in contact with JConk, pls. relay my message!ThanksJohn K
Bert,Can you take a pic of those, and give dimensions?Thanks!John K
Unless you are planning on storing wine, wouldn't it be easier to just add a second refrigerator to your garage, than converting that wine cooler? When the party is over, you will have extra fridge space. Just a thought.TomN
Tom,The combination of small size, price, and temp control on the wine cooler is what I was looking for. Originally I was going to get an external thermometer (Johnson Control, etc) and attach it to a small fridge, and I may still yet!But we'll see how my setup works for now.Most of the time I'm just doing about 10-15 dough balls anyways.John K
