Using the Cambro HWAPR Handwash Station

See how easy it is to meet Health Department Hand Washing requirements by turning your Cambro Camtainer into the Cambro HWAPR Handwash Station. By turning a beverage dispenser into a handwashing station when necessary, you're saving time and money!

65 years ago Cambro started with one product: the Camtray. One product. One skew. Today, Cambro manufactures over 13,000 products which equal 33,000 skews. Since 2005, the center of Cambro's world wide warehousing and distribution system is Cambro City of Industry, or COY facility. Located 30 miles north of Cambro's headquarters in Huntington Beach California, the COY facility boasts an impressive 320,000 sq. ft. of space that warehouses over 1 million cases of product. While its main purpose is the central warehouse for Cambro, the activity at COY includes more than you think, such as fulfilling sample request, receiving, shipping to regional distribution around the world, and shipping replacement parts. 25,000 cases of product come in every day from our manufacturing facilities, most of it from our Huntington Beach factories. Cambro manufactures and distributes products all over the world. Regional facilities like those in Germany, Turkey, India, and China all manufacture a selection of products for those markets. The rest of Cambro products sold there and all over the world come from COY. The City of Industry facility operates 24 hours a day, 5 days a week. Three shifts work around the clock. Each shift has the responsibility to pick a certain number of products and ship them out by the end of their shift. 1st and 2nd shifts also receive and put away products from our factories in Huntington Beach. 2nd shift also handles the product samples shipment. More than 3,000 sample requests are processed monthly. Samples are kept in a dust free environment in our efficiently designed sample room. With 47 dock doors, COY can accommodate inbound and outbound traffic. To process 25,00 cases ever day you need automation. Our automated warehouse system scans the bar code and then matches it up with the correct order and quantity of item that is supposed to come through. Those orders are grouped together on pallets for shipping. The pallet flow operation is where all the high moving products are warehoused several pallets deep. The equipment zipping around this massive warehouse is all electric;12 pickers and quite a few forklifts. One charge is enough for a busy shift around the warehouse. Just like 65 years ago with the first Camtray, Cambro still relies upon our employees, like the ones at COY, to make sure the products the food service industry relies on makes it to them on time.

Hi, Felix Bazgan here to discuss one of the most important aspects of food safety: hand-washing. Hand-washing in the single most effect means of preventing the spread of bacteria and viruses which can cause infections and foodborne illness. A few instances where hand-washing should take place are: before starting to work with food, utensils, or equipment; during food preparation as need; when switching between raw foods and ready-to-eat-foods; after handling soiled utensils and equipment; and of course after coughing, sneezing, eating, drinking, or using the restroom.

In a typical commercial kitchen, this should be standard practice. However, what happens when you are catering off site, or prepping and serving meals at a location without running water or electricity? Here's where the Cambro hand-wash station is the perfect solution. This hand wash station sets up quickly and easily in any environment and uses something most of you already have: the Cambro camtainer.

There are four components to the hand wash station. First, you'll need a two-and-a-half gallon or five-gallon camtainer, or ultra-camtainer. Next, the hand-washer accessory, which easily attaches to the camtainer, and using "hand-wash only" labels and easy-serve dispenser, turns a camtainer from a beverage dispenser to a convenient and economical way to meet health department hand-washing requirements.

The Velcro strap quickly and easily secures the hand-wash accessory to the camtainer. The third component is a camtainer riser, which increases the use of the hand-wash station. Finally, the Cambro five-and-a-half gallon pail makes for a safe disposal of waste water. The two hand-wash models Cambro offers both have a soap dispenser and are available with a paper towel roll holder or multi-fold paper towel dispenser.

    hot coffee great hours beverages events easy gallon Cambro cold
    We don't use this dispenser in my mobile coffee shop, but it works well and keeps any coffee or liquid as HOT or COLD as you want it! Great for tabletop sales or samples.
    This Cambro is the perfect size for sending out hot water, decaf coffee, or hot chocolate. Those items are often ordered in smaller quantities so it works great. Keeps the heat in well, is easy to clean, and overall very functional.
    The Cambro 250LCD110 Camtainers® 2.5 Gallon Black Insulated Beverage Dispenser does it's job well. It was great value and makes the job easier. We will be looking forward to buying more.
    We purchased this cambro so we could serve hot coffee at outdoor events. The size is perfect and with the handles is easy to carry. The clasps on the lid are also heavy duty and won't break when you are just getting used to having such a nice item around.
    Exactly what you expect from Cambro: very sturdy and lasts forever. We use this to provide warm water for an outdoor handwash station. Staff and customers use up the water sooner than it can go cold.
    Love this. Keeps coffee warm all day and hot chocolate too. Used for many parties and have had no problem with keeping all the liquid warm till the end.
    These things are great. They keep our coffee hot four hours, are very easy to clean, easy to store because they stack on top of each other, and are easy to transport. They only thing to keep an eye on is the vent at the top. You need to make sure it is open when you are moving hot liquids or it will spill out the sides.
    We got tired of making 3 or 4 batches of teas and lemonade every single day in gallon containers, these help with the work load and once we removed the bottom rack in the fridge they fit great to keep the beverages cold. while not in use.
    Love these Cambros. We use several of them for lemonade on hot days then coffe and hot chocolate at night. They stay hot forever and are easy to clean.
    These work great. I purchased two of these and they work as expected. Double check your brewers height and width before you purchase to make sure that fit under your brewer.
    These are great - just a little heavy. They keep beverages hot for hours so using them for catering events has been wonderful. They also can keep beverages chilled - like our cold brew coffee!
    I'm very critical when it comes to the products we serve/sell. We used our new Cambro 2.5 Gallon container for 2 events this week and I'm not happy with the performance. We preheated the container with 180 degree water and within 2 hours of brewing the coffee it had cooled significantly. For today's event we were contracted to brew 8 gallons of coffee. The only other container I had available was a 5 gallon RubberMaid construction-type cooler. When we brought the service home, the Cambro's leftover coffee was cool. The Rubbermaid's was still steaming. This was after 6 hours. If I had kept the Cambro's box I'd be returning it. We've worked too hard to build our reputation to serve luke-warm coffee. I won't be purchasing this brand again in the future.
    We appreciate your review! If you have any concerns about the product you purchased please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    This product likes nice and is sturdy in construction. I was hoping it would hold temp a bit longer. I tested it out with hot water brewed out of the dispenser (like coffee) completely filled and it drops approximately 40 degrees within 4 hours. I thought it would last longer than that.
    Keeps beverages hot for hours. They work great at Farmers Markets and the black is attractive looking that it fits in almost anywhere. We have used them for all sorts of events.
    Will do the job at beverages cold or hot at an ideal temperature. It is just a little bulky for my cafe, but it works.
    The Cambro 250LCD110 2.5 Gallon Camtainer Insulated Beverage Dispenser in Black is sturdy and works very well. It is a great product for our catering needs.
    This dispenser really holds the heat well! It has super heavy duty clamps on top to keep any liquid from leaking if turned on its side.
    Starting a cookie and coffee truck. Perfect container and price. Easy to fill and stays hot for hours. Purchased two sizes for regular and decaf.
    We 3 of these 2.5 gallon dispensers and 2 of the 4.5 gallon disperses and have had nothing but good luck. These do a good job of keeping our coffee hot and our tea cold. Also with our older containers by some other brand there was some dripping after a few uses but after 3 years these are still going strong. Highly recommended!!
    I have three of these that I use for all my catering events. They hold a lot of product, and are extremely durable. Great price, recommend this to everyone I know.
    We we had to replace some of our beverage dispensers. After checking with our regular suppliers we found the Webstaurant had the best price. They had updated the dispensers a little since our last ones, the top vent can be hard to tell if it is open or closed by just looking at it as well as pulling on the vent because there is so little movement. Not a bad design but could have been a little simpler. Over all Cambro produces a quality product and we are looking forward to several years of use out of the replacements. Some of the old ones had lasted 10 years or more.
    We have had another brand, and after a few uses, their lids warped, and coffee would come sloshing out. Not so with this one. It has a good design for serving (coffee stays hot if it isn't too empty) and for storage.
