FIFO BOTTLE™ FAQ
What are the benefits of FIFO BOTTLE™?
FIFO BOTTLE™ is bottom dispensing which provides several benefits. Having the sauce already at the bottom means you don’t need to bang the FIFO BOTTLE™ on the counter, providing faster service and longer bottle life. Gravity pulls the sauce down, providing up to 15% sauce savings over traditional squeeze bottles.

What does FIFO mean?
Which valve should I use?
FIFO BOTTLE™ works with a wide range of sauces. You can customize FIFO BOTTLE™ for your needs by choosing the dispensing cap and valve which best suits your applications:
Small Valve (Green), ideal for thin and fluid sauces or fine beads of sauce.
Medium Valve (Yellow), ideal for most sauces including ketchup, mustard, BBQ and smooth sauces.
Large Valve (Blue), ideal for thick sauces, sauces with small particles and larger portion amounts, including mayonnaise, tartar sauce and thousand island dressing.
Viscous Valve (Light Blue)*, ideal for sauces like honey, caramel and thick syrups.

What is a Vented Label Cap for?
The Vented Label Cap is for thick or viscous sauces. After a bottle is squeezed, air enters the bottle, filling it back up so it’s ready to squeeze again. With thick or viscous sauces this can take a bit longer so we created the vented cap at the top which allows air into the top of the bottle more quickly so it can be used again sooner!

Do the FIFO BOTTLE™ wire racks work with all sizes of FIFO BOTTLE™?
What temperature range can FIFO BOTTLE™ handle?
FIFO BOTTLE™ will withstand temperatures of 180°F/82°C, making it commercial dishwasher safe. For optimal performance and safety, we advise to keep FIFO BOTTLE™ below 100°F/37°C when in use. FIFO BOTTLE™ can be used with warmed sauce at a maximum temperature of 140°F/60°C for up to two hours. Heating FIFO BOTTLE™ can result in leaking when the air inside expands as it warms, forcing sauce to leak from the valves.
Please note that as per the American Burn Association, severe burns can occur when in contact with substances above 120°F/48°C.
Can FIFO BOTTLE™ be microwaved?
What is the easiest way to fill my bottles?
Try using the Silicone Funnel for FIFO BOTTLE™. The funnel fits securely into any sized bottle, providing a quick and easy solution.
Why is the Viscous Valve FIFO Bottle™ only sold in 12oz & 16oz sizes?
Using viscous substances in FIFO Bottle™ requires a greater amount of force to dispense the bottle's contents. As a bottle's contents are dispensed, the amount of air in the bottle increases; therefore the extent to which a bottle needs to be squeezed/compressed to dispense the contents also increases. This can become increasingly challenging in larger volume bottles as they are emptied. The greater volume of air often makes it difficult to compress the bottle with one hand. Sticking to a 12oz or 16oz FIFO Bottle when working with viscous substances will typically mitigate this problem and result in better performance.
For viscous substances consider using a product such as PORTION PAL™ or SAUCE GUN BOTTLE. These products use a plunger to scrape the sides of the bottle while pushing the contents down and out through the valve, resulting in better performance and higher yield.
