Take Out Containers

In a world where we enjoy dining out, we need to have someplace to store and transport all of that delicious food for also eating in the comfort of our home or anywhere else we would like. Takeout containers are the perfect solution for transporting and storing food from restaurants, food trucks, cafeterias, and any other food service business. Whether you are in search of foam, paper, plastic, or aluminum carry out food containers, you can be sure that CleanItSupply.com has just what you need at a great price.

Are plastic take out containers microwavable?

Harvard Medical School’s Health Publishing states that warnings have been made that microwaving plastic releases cancer-causing chemicals into the food. Those cancer-causing chemicals are called dioxins. Yet, plastic does not contain dioxins. Dioxins are created when garbage, wood, plastics, and other materials are burned. Therefore, so long as you do not burn your food when heating it in the plastic container in the microwave then you are not exposing yourself to dioxins.

The FDA closely regulates plastic containers and materials that come into contact with food. It requires manufacturers to test these containers using specific tests that meet FDA standards and qualifications. The FDA then reviews test data before approving a plastic container for microwave use. Only after testing can those plastic containers that pass display a microwave-safe icon or the words "microwave safe" stating that they are approved for use in microwave ovens. Keep in mind that most takeout containers, water bottles, and plastic tubs or jars made to hold margarine, yogurt, whipped topping, and foods such as cream cheese, mayonnaise, and mustard are not microwave-safe. As a general safety rule, always read the container’s label for usage instructions and allowances. If it does not specifically state it is microwave-safe, then do not use the container in the microwave.

Is Styrofoam microwave safe?

According to an article by Harvard Medical School’s Health Publishing, Styrofoam as well as other polystyrene containers are actually safe for the microwave, contrary to popular belief. They suggest before placing Styrofoam food containers in the microwave to just do what you would do when considering whether or not to microwave plastic food containers, which would be to simply check the label for the “microwave safe” approval stamp.

What are the different types of foam takeout containers?

Wikipedia explains that foam take-out containers are made from EPS foam, which is expanded polystyreneor foam, and is made of pre-expanded polystyrene beads. It is produced by injecting the foam into a mold. Sometimes the foam food containers are incorrectly referred to as Styrofoam, which is a trademark of The Dow Chemical Company for closed-cell extruded polystyrene foam currently made for thermal insulation and craft applications. The term “Styrofoam” is often incorrectly used as a generic term for expanded (not extruded) polystyrene foam or cushioning material in packaging, which are typically white and made of expanded polystyrene beads.

There are mainly two types of foam take out containers: rectangular and cylinder shaped. The rectangular shaped container is also known as clamshell style since it has an attached lid like that of a clam’s shell. They might have one large compartment for the food or multiple compartments to keep foods separated while stored in one container. The cylinder shaped take out foam containers are usually used to store or transport liquid foods such as soups or stews. When the separate plastic lid is tightly sealed on the top of the container, it is usually leak proof.

What are sugarcane containers?

Sugarcane food containers are disposable takeout food containers that are made from bagasse, a renewable sugarcane byproduct, and are completely compostable. These clamshell food containers are made from naturally grown sugarcane and are easily converted by nature back into simple, stable compounds that are absorbed back into the ecosystem. This conversion process takes just a few months with normal composting and introduces no toxins into the environment. Disposable and compostable, these containers are sturdy enough for hold both hot and cold food items and are also microwave and freezer safe. These renewable food containers are not only sturdy, but also grease and cut resistant.

If you are looking for a single compartment container or a 3 compartment take out box, we have what you need. Soups, salads, and sandwiches can all be taken where you would like with our wide variety of carry out food containers. When you need your hot food to stay hot and your cold food to stay cold, you can be sure that our insulated containers will not let you down and will keep your food tasting fresh longer. Looking for something a bit more environmentally responsible? Our compostable sugarcane carry out food containers are made from 100% reclaimed and annually renewable materials. Not only are they sturdy and grease proof but are also cut resistant. These take out containers are a perfect choice for both hot and cold food items and are freezer and microwave safe.
