[Costco] Cambro 12 Qt Container with lid 2-pack $28.99

1st post! This is a fantastic deal on food storage containers with a lid, basically half price of anywhere else. These are restaurant-grade (afaik) quality and are perfect for brining, mixing/proofing dough, whatever. Added bonus of coming with a lid, as often these are sold separately.

Hard to tell how big they are. They look small. Would a whole chicken fit in one? If so, up to how big

Wondering if these are good for Sous Vide. It should be fine from the temperature perspective (rated up to 70C and I typically use 55C for steaks).
Does anybody have any experience?

i picked up a 2 pack in-store for $18.99 I believe a couple of months ago.

I already had a couple and have found them extremely useful.

sous vided a nice costco roast in one. Also great for mixing up batches of pizza dough.

They are polypropylene. #5 pp. 8 inch deep. My instant pot sous max line aligns with the handle rim, if that makes sense. About 5cm room on bottom. Min line for this shows around the 5L mark. Hope this helps your decision. You cook in a sealed bag, right? What's the risk in the water vessel? It's costco. Buy now and return in 3 yr after covid if you have to.

Look for the polycarbonate ones... 210F

I second polycarbonate as they are also more rigid and as mentioned higher temp rated.

I’d look for a 12 qt Rubbermaid container. Square, polycarbonate, about $30, plus lid, if needed.

I hear the boys do the Sous Vide in toilet tank on construction site and it work good. They learn from chef show.
