Durapod bins are made to meet the highest Food Grade standards to comply with NSF/ANSI 2 certification requirements.

 Frequency of Cleaning – How frequently you disassemble and thoroughly clean the bins will depend on current requirements set by the local jurisdiction, your Company cleaning policies, and the nature of the product in the bin. Some local authorities may require that the bin fronts, spouts and lids be wiped with an antibacterial throughout the day. Consult your local jurisdiction as to their recommendations/requirements. Sticky product residue on the sides of the bins may necessitate more frequent and thorough washing of the bin.

At a minimum we recommend wiping the front of the bin, the spout and the lid on a daily basis with a mild cleaning solution using a soft cloth to remove fingerprints.

It is also important to remember to dust the inside of the spout on the gravity bins. A sheepskin style duster with a handle is the best option for accomplishing this task.

GD1000 Gravity Bin Cleaning Process

  1. Remove the bin from the shelf by lifting the front to clear the front lip and pull forward to release from the rear grip. You may have to wiggle the bin to assist in releasing from the rear grip. Once the bin is released from the shelf, place it on a flat surface and remove the bin from the base by pushing down on the black lever at the back of the base and then sliding the bin body forward to dislocate the two hooks on the underside of the bin body.
  2. Disassemble the bin by following the Durapod GD1000 Gravity Bin Dismantling & Assembly
  3. Durapod Bins are manufactured from BPA FREE Co-polyester (does not include bases), being more scratch resistant and with a higher heat resistance than polycarbonate or other less robust materials.  Co-polyester has been tested and proved safe at 185° Fahrenheit / 85° Celsius using approved detergents & sanitizers, with no evidence of cracking or crazing for up to 500 dishwashing cycles. However, using the dish machine may adversely affect the appearance of the bin after repeated washings. Our recommendation is to wash the bin in warm water with a soft cloth and a mild detergent.  Use of caustic cleaning solutions and/or scouring pads will irreparably damage the units and void the warranty.
  4. Once cleaned and dried, reassemble the bin by following the Durapod GD1000 Gravity Bin Dismantling & Assembly Instructions in reverse order.

Many Durapod customers set up a bin rotation schedule to ensure that all bins are thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis.  Keeping a few extra bins on hand will allow you to rotate the bins without negatively impacting the number of SKU’s available to your customers while bins are being cleaned.


Some parts will wear out over time due to normal wear and tear.  To determine the appropriate part number, go to our PARTS page and review the bin blow-up drawing specific to the model for which parts are needed.  Part numbers are noted on the drawing.
