Hi All -
I've been looking EVERYWHERE (Restaurant supplies, Cash & Carry, Sam's, Costco Business Center, etc.) for those large flour bins on casters. Anyone have a source I've not thought of? I really need something to contain these seven million lbs of flour I'm storing.
I think I remember seeing a 15lb food storage bin at IKEA, they even stack nicely! Or you could go to a restaurant supply store and get one of those large storage bins on wheels, they are pretty spendy though.
Yes, IKEA does have storage that would work and someone on here gave me that idea, but I emailed them and they said they are not marked as food-grade plastic. Maybe if there is some sort of food-safe liner?
GFS sells them and so does Sam's Club I believe. Probably an order item, not one that they carry in the store all the time. Boy are they pricey though! I so want them. *sigh*
I recently purchase the vast majority of my bakery equipment, smallwares and storage (including the rolling Cambro ingredient bins) from www.bigtray.com
Customer service is fantastic, no sales tax (if you live outside of CA) and shipping is free for orders over $250. If you don't see what you are looking for on the website, send them an email or give them a call. They have alot more stuff than what's listed.
Here's another source: http://www.equippers.com/shop/products.aspx?ret=1&pcid=28&scid=2830 Their shipping is VERY reasonable!! I dont' have bins exactly like these, but the ones I have will hold over 200 lbs of sugar or flour.
As mentioned above, be sure they are NSF rated or they "technically" can't be used for food storage. Unfortunately, I had to throw out my old "red plastic coffee can" system quite some time ago!
Thanks SO much. You guys know everything!
