Beverage tubs are insulated containers designed to hold and keep cool cans or bottles of beverages. Some are designed specifically to hold a food pan or insulted insert that will contain the contents and help keep them cool, while others are self-contained insulated tubs. They are available in several shapes, sizes and styles, from large round stainless steel beverage tubs to smaller rectangular housings.
When choosing a beverage tub, make sure it contains enough cubic inches to hold the number of bottles or cans that you will need to meet the demand of your customers. Some are made to hold a single wine bottle, while others are fitted for a larger capacity. Also consider what kind of features you need. Some tubs include drain kits, which allows the melted ice to drain. This will allow you to refill the tub with ice frequently throughout the day and will guarantee that you will not have beverages or food packages swimming in water.
These tubs are not just for beverages. They can be used to hold a variety of packaged food items, too, from pudding to string cheese. This makes them great for daycares, preschools and small elementary schools as well as fast-casual establishments and catering operations. The insulation on most of the tubs will help keep beverages cool for a long duration that is sufficient for the majority of parties and events.
The most important superficial factor of a beverage tub is it's color and material. Metal beverage tubs are sleek and provide a higher-end look. Plastic versions are more economical and great for those on a budget. If you want something a little bit more edgy, go with a mirror tub with an acrylic surface. These will bring a shine and luxurious element to the beverage area.
