    Does anyone know the best place to buy takeaway food containers?

    I would like to start prepping my meals in batches so need at least 50 containers and was wondering if anyone could suggest any which are good in the Freezer, microwave and dishwasher for a few uses at least?

    I have looked in the normal places but need to cook tonight, so eBay off the cards.

    Thanks in advance

    If you need them in a hurry, I think poundland sells them but I think there's only about 5 in the pack?

    Yes, the plastic ones that my Chinese comes in. I reuse those.

    He/she needs them today. They do same day delivery?

    Cosco ?

    When my daughter was at Uni, she had a pack of about 6 for £1 from The Range

    Thanks, think I will stick with Wilko ones for now and once they are knackered, order some in from a supplier.

    Home bargains, Poundland, B&M

    Go in to your local Chinese restaurant & ask for a deal..

    Homdbargains had 10 for £1

    Bookers. if u want bulk straight away, as said above Poundland 5/6in a pack for now, think I might have seen some in Tesco in the cheap aisle

    You get 8 from Poundland I think? Unless you get the deeper ones, which are in a pack of five. They don't respond well to the dishwasher though in my experience, unless you rinse them thoroughly first. The salt in the food tends to corrode the plastic in the dishwasher, making them look rather tatty.

    £1.99 for 15 in B&M

    Just looked in my cupboard and I have some unopened ones! Definitely 8 in a pack at Poundland - 650ml 'KitchenCorner' range, described as suitable for fridge, freezer and microwave with 'leak resistant lids!'

    my wife uses Costco

    That's what I am talking about! Hope they have them, will pop by at lunch. Cheers for the advice regarding rinsing.
