Anchor Packaging has released the latest addition to the Incredi-Bowls line of microwavable bowls and lids. The new, round 7.25-inch polypropylene (PP) bowls are designed to enhance the operator’s bottom line and for a large individual serving or a family-size portion. Available in 20, 24, 32, and 40-ounce depths, the bowls share a common, polypropylene, vented lid. This new size joins the 5-inch, 6-inch, and 8.5-inch bowls ranging from 5-ounce to 48-ounce, for a total offering of 16 bowls in four footprints.
With the new size of microwavable bowls, the smaller footprint is more cost effective than larger diameters. They’re also made with a natural mineral additive, reducing the use of petroleum-based resin by 40 percent. The use of less PP resin allows Anchor to pass on the savings to its customers as a more sustainable option. One lid to fit four bowls eliminates confusion, saves space in the prep area, and reduces inventory storage costs.
The black bowls provide a table-ready presentation in a durable, cut-resistant material. The leak-resistant closure eliminates messy spills. The vented lid includes integral Clear Guard anti-fog technology to prevent condensation or “fogging” of the lid. This maximizes hot-case merchandising opportunities for retailers and eliminates takeout order errors for foodservice operators, while keeping hot foods looking fresh and appealing. The four bowls and lid will withstand temperatures to 230 degrees in warming units, under heat lamps, or in the microwave, so there’s need to re-plate chilled, prepared foods when reheated in the microwave.
In addition to hot cases, the Incredi-Bowls and lids can be used in refrigerated or ambient displays, and all are dishwasher safe.
