PORTION PAL FAQ
What are the benefits to using PORTION PAL™?
What portion sizes can PORTION PAL™ dispense?
PORTION PAL™ can be set to dispense fixed portion quantities. Five portion rings are included with each PORTION PAL™ kit for the following quantities: 1/4oz (7.5ml), 1/3oz (10ml), 1/2oz (15ml), 3/4oz (22.5ml) & 1oz (30ml). Additional portion rings are available separately: 2/5oz (12.5ml), 2/3oz (20ml), 4/5oz (25ml).
What portions size should I dispense?
These videos show each portion size when dispensed onto a 3.75" to 4" diameter bun. Keep in mind that the viscosity of a sauce will affect how much it bleeds across the bun. Thicker sauces will sit in a dollop, while thinner sauces will bleed out and hold less height.

Can you store prefilled bottles in the fridge overnight?
Does PORTION PAL™ leak?
As long as the appropriate valve is chosen for the type of product being dispensed and no air pockets are left in the bottle when filling, no leaking will occur. If the bottles are dropped, a small amount of sauce may splatter. A significant change in temperature from a cold fridge to a hot kitchen will cause any air in the bottle to expand and may result in short term sauce leakage.

What is the difference between PORTION PAL™ and SAUCE GUN BOTTLE?
Both PORTION PAL™ and SAUCE GUN BOTTLE provide accurate portioning, fast dispensing and a 98% yield. PORTION PAL™ is made from food grade plastic for an ergonomic lightweight design, while SAUCE GUN BOTTLE works with stainless-steel SAUCE GUNS, making it slightly heavier, but extremely durable. Each SAUCE GUN dispenses a fixed portion, whereas PORTION PAL™ can dispense multiple portions (ranging from 1/4oz to 1oz) by simply switching out the colored portion ring on the handle.

Why is PORTION PAL™ not available with Chunky or Viscous Valves in a two or three-valve dispensing cap version?
Chunky Valve: Chunky Valve’s extra-large opening requires a larger overall diameter than other valves. As such, it’s not possible to fit multiple Chunky Valves into one dispensing cap.
Viscous Valve: PORTION PAL’s™ design provides smooth, gradual dispensing, allowing for the user to draw lines or patterns for greater sauce coverage. As a sauce’s viscosity increases, so does the pressure required to push it through a valve. As such, using a multi-valve cap with viscous sauces can result in uneven sauce coverage if enough pressure is not generated to open all valves evenly and simultaneously.
Looking to dispense viscous sauces with a multi-valve cap? SAUCE GUN BOTTLE dispenses sauce in a less gradual, more immediate fashion and therefore works better with a three-valve Viscous Valve cap.
