Customer Questions


Q: Do you have these bottles in a 12 oz size?

A: The 8, 16 & 32 oz sizes shown online are the only ones we offer. You may want to consider item number 1460, the Ring Neck BBQ Sauce Round, which does come in a 12 oz size.

Q: Very interested in these bottles! What dimensions would I need for labels? Thanks so much and have a wonderful day!

A: The suggested label dimensions are 2.5 x 6 for the 8oz bottle, 2.5 x 8 for the 16 oz bottle and 2.75 x 8.5 for the 32 oz bottle.

Q: Will these bottles take a hot pour of 185 degrees?

A: No, the maximum temperature this bottle can withstand is 140° F, making it incompatible with hot filled products.

Q: Under your quantity is 1 bottle for 2.16 or is it 1 case meaning 12 bottles? Do you know how to process these at home, meaning do you put these in a water bath like home canning? How do they seal properly. Thanks Angela

A: Dear Angela - The $2.16 price is for one bottle, the case price (for 168 bottles) is $0.86 per bottle. While these bottles provide a leak-proof seal with all the closures we offer, they are not suitable for home canning since the maximum temperature they can withstand is 140° F. If your product requires a vacuum seal, we recommend that you use Glass Bottles and Metal Caps with Rubber Gaskets instead. .

Q: Are these bottles resistant to heat? What is the max. temperature before the bottles lose their shape?

A: These bottles are made from PVC Plastic, which exhibits poor resistance to high temperatures and will distort at 160° F.

Q: Do they come in glass?

A: Yes. Click here for the Glass BBQ Sauce Bottles.

Q: What is the maximun temp. for these bottles? Some of the reviews stated hot fill worked great, but how hot. Thank You

A: Hello - The maximum hot fill temperature this bottle can withstand is 140° F.

Q: How do you seal this bottle to keep in the freshness?

A: This plastic bottle is not compatible with hot filled products. If your product requires a vacuum seal, we recommend that you use the Glass BBQ Bottles with Metal Caps instead.

Q: Where are the bottles manufactured?

A: These bottles are made in the USA.

Q: How large are the cases that the 32 oz and 16oz come in? Im asking the actual container size for shipping purposes. Thanks. Im trying to avoid brokerage fees.

A: The case dimensions are 24" x 22.25" x 22.5".

Q: Where can we get the labels that will fit the 32oz bottle?

A: The suggested label dimensions for the 32 oz. bottle are 2.75" x 8.5". We recommend that you contact www.onlinelabels.com or www.simplylabels.com for all your labeling needs.

Q: How does the lid make a food grade seal in processing? Does the product have to be heated like in a canning process or is it self sealing?

A: Please note that most plastic bottles are not compatible with hot filled products. If your product requires a vacuum seal, we recommend that you use Glass Bottles with Metal Caps that have a rubber gasket. You can learn more about the different canning methods by clicking on the link below: http://blog.ebottles.com/?cat=12

Q: Are these plastic bottles designed for a hot pour when filling ? Also to you carry 18 oz hot pour plastic bottles? Thank you... Elizabeth Clark

A: Dear Elizabeth - These bottles are made from PVC plastic which is incompatible with hot filled products. Unfortunately, we dont carry any plastic bottles that are suitable for hot filling and recommend that you use Glass Bottles and Metal Caps with inner gaskets instead.

Q: what does pet mean

A: PET is the type of plastic used to make this bottle and stands for Polyethylene Terephthalate. PET provides very good alcohol and essential oil barrier properties, generally good chemical resistance (although acetones and ketones will attack PET) and a high degree of impact resistance and tensile strength. This material does not provide resistance to high temperature applications -- max. temp. 140° F.

Q: What are the case dimensions for the 16oz PET plastic bottles? Additionally, do you carry this bottle in 14oz? If so, what is the pricing, label dimensions, case dimensions?

A: Here are the case dimensions for the 16 oz PET Plastic Bottles: 24" x 20" x 24.5". Unfortunately, we dont carry this bottle in a 14 oz. size. Click here for a PET Plastic Bottle that we carry in a 14.5 oz. size.

Q: How do I seal the bottles of sauce with this type of cap. Do I need a special machine or is it just a twist on type of thing. Is this seal meant for sealing bottles of sauce.

A: The Pressure Sensitive Inner Seals are designed to provide tamper evidence to help consumers identify whether or not a container has been opened prior to use. The pressure sensitive liners adhere to the bottle opening when the closure is applied and remain in place when the cap is removed. No extra equipment is required. Please note that this material needs a dry land area on the bottle and therefore is most suitable for use with dry products such as vitamins, foods and pharmaceuticals. If you decide to use it with your BBQ Sauce, please make sure that the rims of your bottles are completely clean and dry before you apply the closures, so that the seal can stick to the bottle. If your product requires a vacuum seal, you will need to use Glass Bottles with plastisol lined Metal Caps. Please call us toll free at 888-215-0023 if you need additional information.

Q: I need the dimensions for the 16 oz and 32 oz bottle...depth, width and height. Im working on upc codes and need these measurements. Also I need weight of both bottles in glass and plastic along with measurements. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated. Also, I am in the market for some of your bottles but I live and need them in Maui Hawaii. I was really taken aback by the freight. For now I only need a small amount...perhaps a 100 with caps and shrink sleeves. Can you please investigate a better way to get the bottles to me. What about USPS? Thanks, Robert

A: Robert - Please find the dimensions for the 16 and 32 oz. BBQ bottles below. You can also look up the dimensions for all our bottles online by clicking on the bottle size. All orders ship via UPS Ground, including orders to Hawaii. We apologize for the inconvenience. Measurements for 16 oz. PVC bottle without closure: The Overall Height is 7.125" The Diameter is 2.56" The Circumference is 8.042" Measurements for the 32 oz. bottle without closure: The Overall Height is 8.125" The Diameter is 3.75" The Circumference is 11.781"

Q: Im looking to order the 16oz plastic bbq sauce bottle but I cant tell if Im looking at the one with the ribs with the longer neck or the lower cost one without the ribs. Which one will I receive if I order. I prefer the longer neck of the one with the ribs.

A: When ordering the 16 oz. BBQ Bottle, you will receive the lower cost PET Bottle with no ribs. Please note that the ribbed 16 oz. PVC Bottle has been discontinued.

Q: Do you provide samples? We make a salad dressing and package in glass pint jars. Can you give me an idea of the difference between shelf life in glass vs. shelf life in PET for products like salad dressing?

A: Since there is no order minimum, we ask that you please order your samples online. Per our sample policy, we will issue you a full refund for your sample order, including the cost for Ground shipping, once you place an order of $100 or more. Unfortunately, we are unable to advise regarding the shelf life of your product since it depends on many factors including product ingredients, head space, and the way the product is packed.

Q: How to seal bottle, and preserve product.

A: This plastic bottle is not compatible with hot filled products, however, most BBQ Sauce recipes are vinegar-based and dont necessarily require a vacuum seal. If your product needs to be vacuum packed, we recommend that you use Glass Bottles with plastisol-lined Metal Caps instead. Click here for a Complete Guide to Home Canning.

Q: Do these bottles need to be washed prior to filling with sauce?

A: They do not necessarily need washing, but it is a good idea. Bear in mind that these plastic bottles melt at a relatively low temperature (140F).

Product use: these bottles look great but are the pressure sentitive inner seal screw on caps ok to use by the USDA?
What is good:
From eBottles: Big Mike: The good news is that food products are not required by the FDA to have tamper resistant seals, only over-the-counter drug products have this requirement (see our article in the closure section). The pressure sensitive inner seals are ok to use if you want, but generally speaking they are not recommended to be used with liquids as they wont seal if the lip of the bottle is wet.

Product use: Thank you for the follow up. Customer service almost seems to be nonexistent in business today. I am very pleased with the product, I just wished I purchased the 16 oz. bottles instead. Once I have exhausted my supply of the 8 oz. bottles I will be ordering more, hopefully in the near future. I still have about 240 of the original 250 ordered bottles. Again, thank you for the follow up.
