If you’re serious about preserving, it helps to have a bit of useful equipment. When you are preparing preserves or home brew on a large scale, life is made easier with a few buckets for preserving, jerry cans or preserving pans. Wares of Knutsford can supply plastic buckets, jerry cans, maslin pans and even demijohns.
Plastic food buckets at Wares of Knutsford
Wares of Knutsford’s range of plastic food buckets for preserving is simple and no nonsense. Buckets are of plain white plastic with lid and handle. They are sold individually in sizes of one litre, 2.75 litres and five litres. They are a no-frills product – easy to clean, easy to label and easy to handle.
With a tight fitting lid they are useful not only for large scale preserving but also for storing any kinds of liquid or dried goods. If you have a large family, entertain often or are a serious bargain hunter, buying goods on a large scale is both convenient and cost effective, but quite often storage can be an issue. Our round plastic buckets are stackable and will allow you to store large amounts of items safely, air tight and labelled so you can see what’s what.
Liquids such as sauces can also be cumbersome to store, but Wares of Knutsford can supply some convenient plastic jerry cans in one litre, 2.5 litre and five litre sizes, with a ridged plastic screw cap. The cans are sold individually and, like the food buckets, are of plain plastic so they are easy to clean, easy to label and easy to handle. They are ideal for storing and dispensing sauces and liquids of all sorts.
Once you’ve eaten the contents, the plastic buckets and jerry cans make excellent storage in garages and store rooms for children’s toys, tools, camping and fishing equipment or crafting supplies!
Using plastic food buckets for preserving
If you are making pickles on a large scale, you’ll need some large containers to store them in. Plastic food buckets are ideal as they can be made airtight with a tight fitting lid. You can use these buckets for making sauerkraut, pickled cucumbers, beetroots, peppers, corn cobs or other vegetables, preserving olives, lemons and other fruits or for home brewing. Before using your buckets for any kind of food, make sure they are clean with a hot, soapy water wash and then sterilised. Avoid using bleach on the plastic.
