We use these containers to safely and securely transport our delicate meringue sandwiches for parties and to the market. The small boxes fit perfectly and stack well inside the container.

Bernard L. on 07/20/2021

Been using these for a few weeks now. Very happy with the quality and durability thus far. Clear so we can easily see what's inside and also solid constrcution!

Rachel M. from Dry Goods Refillery on 10/12/2020

These are perfect for storing cut up veggies and for baked goods. Love the size and quality of this product. I like that they are clear and you can see what is in them.

Jyll Q. from Brush High School on 06/06/2020

These containers are awesome for a variety of things. We use them for dry storage, liquid egg storage, proofing dough and prep. The 18x12x6 is a good size to fit in the cooler with out taking up too much space. Very good quality.

Sandra I. from Slim's Cafe on 01/25/2020

We use these at our shop to store everything, from bagged spices to fruit, some of them inside the fridge and others on the rack on our storage area. Pretty sturdy material, thick plastic.

Alessandro R. from Ecco Un Poco on 01/20/2020

An essential in your commercial kitchen. Makes storage very easy in any walk-in or dry storage area. Helps keep everything neat and tight and you don't have to have ugly boxes around to hold your goods.

Cambro 12186CW135 Camwear 18" x 12" x 6" Clear Polycarbonate Food Storage Box we will sign it's praise. These products are amazing. Will buy again.

Distribution W. on 12/06/2019

Just the size we needed for the salad bar. Fits one bag of salad perfectly. Buy the lid as well and it works great for storing salad as well.

Josh M. from Junction 21 on 11/24/2019

These bins are super heavy duty material! They don't discolor and the lid fastens securely. We have some in all different sizes. Freezer safe as well! Some of the plastic bins and lids we use get brittle at cold temperatures and crack. These are perfect for storing and stacking!

Jennifer W. from The Sweet Praxis on 08/01/2019

This product is of excellent quality and made of durable material. Great for food storage and for brine. I recommend to anyone who loves solid containers for storing large volumes.

Vitalii K. on 07/05/2019

I ordered two of the clear poly storage boxes to see how they look and I really like them. They are very practical and useful that I will be ordering more.

David C. on 06/14/2019

This 12"X18"X6" Cambro box works great for our food storage needs. Cambro brand has always lasted the longest out of any other brands and takes a beating. The only issue I have with these is that when purchased new, they have a label sticker that is extremely difficult to remove. It takes goo gone or a blow dryer to remove. We tried running it through our high temp dishwasher and that didn't help. Additionally, the handles to pick up the storage box are sharp in some areas when new. We gently rubbed them with sand paper to avoid our employees getting cut. Something to double check before putting into use. Besides these two issues we love our Cambro boxes!

Ryan A. from ZOMO LLC on 05/07/2019

Strong, durable, and easy to clean. Best storage containers I've used. The lids snap in place and hold securely. I would highly recommend this product.

Aj. C. from Fort Dorchester High School on 04/30/2019

Please note, the measurements are for the exterior, from the handles, not the usable space. The usable space is 9 by 15 inches. If I had known that, I would have bought something bigger. However, it is very sturdy and I will use it for something else.

Anatolij P. from E-Sell Trading Services on 04/17/2019

We ordered these for all 9 of our schools. They use them to transport food and store food in them. They work really well. I would recommend them.

Lara B. from Aberdeen School District on 02/06/2019

These tubs were just right for what I needed. They fit perfectly into my mobile Carlisle 755003 Black Maximizer Portable Bar. I use them to hold sodas and mixers underneath the bar.

Morgan C. from Houston Event Bartenders on 12/11/2018

I love these containers for several reasons. They are light, durable and they are clear so I can see what is inside. I recommend buying a few

Clark P. on 11/28/2018

It's a pretty solid storage box.the best part is that they are clear so you can see your ingredients and it's dishwasher safe so easy cleanup.

Mark H. from Mike Hanna on 09/18/2018

This storage box works great. The poly carbonate structure is very strong to normal wear and tear. The container also cleans well with soap and water.

Andrew Y. from Maryland Zoo In Baltimore on 09/13/2018

These containers are the best for easy cleaning and storage. They stack perfectly in the cooler or pantry shelving. They are sturdy and hold up to heat or freezing.
