ISO : Food Grade Pails/Buckets/Containers

Hi everyone. Just wanted to find sources for cheap food grade buckets / pails / or containers (circular or round) with lids. I'm going to use them for bread dough and/or other foods. Preferably 10 to 18 quarts. Even those buckets where soup is put is fine. I've seen some food grade containers in some restaurant equipment supply stores but the cost is prohibitive. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks.

  1. Ask any restaurant or grocery and I am sure you can get more than you need! Any place I’ve worked, there was always an excess of food grade pails/buckets/containers. What area are you located?

        Just ask at any sizable restaurant... there are always loads of them hanging around.

        To charge you for them would be a crime.

        If you need more direct pointers then please contact me at and I would be happy to give you direct contacts.
