    Does anyone know of a source of hard plastic egg cartons?

    I am looking for something that is washable and stackable.

    The styrofoam cartons get wimpy after several uses.

    Well, Wal-Mart sells a "camping" egg carton made from hard plastic -- but it's too small to fit my home grown eggs! You could always cut it in half if you didn't mind that they weren't covered, I suppose. It's in the camping section.

    Egg Cartons.com sells plastic egg cartons. They're not real hard but they're washable. I bought a box of 100 and have been using them over and over. I give my eggs to friends and family and I ask them to return the cartons to me. 4 years and I still have many of those cartons left. Hope this is helpful.

    Quote:I dont have these exact ones, but something very similar, and they ARE great. Can even go thru the dishwasher (top rack)
