Editor's Notes

November 21, 2018:

Added Cambro Ultra for its removable gasket and extra-large storage capacity for deep trays. The multi-layered construction of the Rubbermaid Commercial serves to keep internal temperatures consistent. Also included the Nature's Wild Food Delivery Bag due to its flexible sidewalls and durable stitching. The transformative and collapsible design of the Progressive Prepworks is ideal for parties and travel.
