Easter is the perfect time to have fun as a family. This is more important than ever right now as we are all living in unusual times. Family life may be quite different than normal at the moment, especially if you have kids who are not at school and their routine has been interrupted. (more…)

In a commercial kitchen you want to ensure that you’re keeping ingredients fresh, reducing food waste, maintaining hygiene and keeping your customers safe. Storing food, ingredients and cleaning products safely is essential, and one of the best ways to do this is with plastic buckets.

Why should I use plastic buckets in my commercial kitchen?

Plastic buckets are a great option for use in a commercial or home kitchen. Not only do they offer great value for money, they’re made from one of the strongest and best-performing materials for the job: plastic. Here are some of the reasons why using plastic containers makes sense in your commercial kitchen space:

Strong and durable

Whatever you store in your commercial kitchen, plastic buckets are one of the strongest and most hard-wearing options. Our plastic buckets use 30% more raw materials than some of our competitors, making them stronger than ever.

Light and easy to carry

If you need to transport items quickly and easily between locations, plastic is considerably lighter and easier to manage than metal or glassware. If you operate across different sites, or you offer catering at external venues, you need to be able to move your produce and tools around quickly and easily.

100% waterproof

No leaks or contamination from other liquids when you use our plastic containers. This is really important for catering use, especially in a commercial kitchen. It’s also great for storing cleaning products or chemicals that could cause problems if it leaked.

Don’t degrade easily

You don’t need to worry about contamination or wastage due to degradation of the container with our plastic buckets. Plus, plastic containers won’t shatter like glass or rust like metal, both of which can contaminate food and be harmful to health.

Available in a range of colours

Our plastic buckets are available in a range of colours so you can organise your commercial kitchen effectively. This is essential when colour-coding storage items and containers by area to avoid contamination from cleaning products or other areas. It’s also ideal for storing vegan, vegetarian or gluten-free ingredients away from contaminants.

Can be reused almost indefinitely

Cleaning, sterilising and reusing plastic is much easier than other options available so you can re-use plastic buckets for storage as much as you need to. As plastic doesn’t degrade like other materials, you’ll get more value from plastic storage.

Watertight and airtight

Keep chemicals and food completely separate, stop any contamination and maintain freshness with our watertight and airtight storage containers. This reduces food wastage and means that your profits stay higher. Any foods stored will stay fresher for far longer in an airtight container.

Value for money

If you do need to replace any storage, or increase the amount of storage containers you have, plastic buckets won’t break the bank. Coupled with their durability and ease of use, they’re ideal to ensure your profit margins don’t suffer.

Have you discovered the benefits of the right wet wipe container?

When someone mentions wet wipes, you’d be forgiven if your mind automatically jumps to thoughts of new parents looking after a baby and getting their heads around nappy changing. However, today wet wipes have become far more universal, and aren’t just a staple of the changing bag. In truth, wet wipes offer a great way to clean and sanitise in a thorough, yet gentle, way - from removing make up and cleansing the face to removing dirt and grime from general surfaces.

Wet wipes have become so versatile and in most cases are reasonably inexpensive, so now come in a number of guises; the milder versions are perfect for simple personal hygiene, while more industrial versions, often with added cleaning agents, make ensuring surfaces, equipment and working areas clean and sanitised very easy. Wet wipes are now often used within construction and manufacturing industries too, providing a quick and easy way to keep both hands and equipment clean and tidy.

The current COVID-19 pandemic has made general cleanliness even more important than ever and wet wipes offer a great way to ensure skin is kept clean and sanitised, especially when halting work to wash hands regularly with water and soap just isn’t practical. Being able to wipe surfaces efficiently with a good cleaning agent can also help give peace of mind for anyone who is having to share space or equipment with others.

Finding the right wet wipe container

What makes using wet wipes even more handy is the way they are stored. H&O Plastics know that having the right kind of wet wipes dispenser can make a real difference to how quickly and easily the wipes themselves can be accessed and used. As well as adding a fool proof way of keeping them from drying out, something which happens all too often if the wipes are left in packets that don’t reseal easily.

Our wet wipe containers come in a range of sizes - making them a great choice for all types of industries. Smaller sizes of the plastic container start from 1L and are perfect for both industrial and domestic uses where space may be an issue. Our larger sizes of container go up to a sturdy 10L size and are ideal for jobs where high usage is likely occur.

All our wet wipe containers, regardless of size, are designed to be accessed easily with one hand - after all, if your hands are dirty you don’t want to be wrestling with a fiddly packet. Just pull the wipe from the top of the container and go.

Our wet wipe dispensers are provided in white and come fitted with a colour coded plastic insert, which not only keeps the wipes from drying out, but can be extremely useful if your situation requires having wipes of differing types available, as the coloured inserts can make them far easier to distinguish. The containers seal ultrasonically, which makes them more hygienic than many other wet wipe containers on the market.

Manufactured by the team here at our Merseyside factory, all products are thoroughly quality checked before leaving the warehouse.
