Also too, a great way to get "pots" completely free...

Our Tim Horton coffee shops here will give their white 5 gallon muffin pails away for free and the lids can be used for drainage trays. All you gotta do is drill some holes on the bottoms of the pails and you're good to go.

I know there are no Tim Horton's in the US...but perhaps one of your coffee shops or dessert places, would be willing to give you their containers. You can just call and ask...they won't mind. A lot of places just throw out these containers anyway so they're more than happy to save them for you.

Just another idea.

We have several Tim Hortons here. You can also go to your grocery store and ask them for their food grade buckets.
