"Fantastic product! Sturdy, tight fitting lids. I have 15, so far. I'll probably get another 10 in 6 months, maybe sooner. Don't forget the metal bucket hammer/opener ($12.95). It makes sealing them lids and opening them back up, stress-free. "

"One MUST purchase the metal bucket opener/hammer ($12.95) as it is the PERFECT tool for opening and closing these very sturdy & secure buckets. I have limited use of my left arm and these buckets would be impossible to open without it. I use the buckets to store various bulk winter stores and dry goods ie., dried beans, flour, sugar, oats, rice, cornmeal, etc. I keep our bulk winter stores in our basement. Last spring was extremely wet and our basement took on water. ALL our left over winter stores remained perfectly dry and consumable. I highly recommend these buckets as long as one also purchases the metal bucket opener/hammer. "

"These buckets are great! Nice tight seal. For all the people here complaining about how they can't get them open, they are supposed to be tight. Get a bucket crank. The metal one Lehman's offers works. If you store a lot in buckets, a crank is a necessity."

"These buckets are great to store many things in. I have grain, seeds, flour, etc stored. The lids are a little hard to get off once they are sealed, but the seal is strong and I know my items are well stored. Wearing a pair of leather gloves helps when unsealing them."

"So glad I found these. They are the perfect size for storing rice, beans, flour and grains. And so compact they take up very little space. The carry handle makes it easy to move them wherever they are needed. I am ordering some more for a friend. Thanks for a great product!"

"This bucket handles very hot water, which is why I bought it. The handle is sufficiently strong to lift a full bucket. However, the manner in which the lid "secures" to the bucket falls short. It requires a lot of pressure to secure it, and then it is a chore to remove it. A well functioning lid is important if one wants to avoid sloshing hot water during even short transport (in my case across the room), and this bucket does not have one. I would not purchase this bucket if I had it to do over again."

"I bought 10 of these buckets to get the price discount. I am always buying 5 gallon buckets at hardware stores and often lids for the buckets are an additional cost. I use buckets to store various kinds of foodstuffs, primarily sunflower seed for birds, safflower seed, chicken feed, and dog food. I also use these buckets to store road salt and sand for the driveway in winter......The buckets are very durable and very stackable. However, they are nearly impossible to get into them once you have sealed them. This is the main reason I have downgraded my rating of these buckets. On the lid, there are four arrows marked on each side of the four sides of the lid. You are supposed to lift at those points, and the lid is supposed to come off. Forget it. Its not gonna happen. And whatever you do, don't try to do it with your fingernails like you would a plastic food storage container. You need a heavy duty pry tool to get the lids off these. I used a claw hammer. The claw part of the hammer that you use to pull nails out of wood, I place the claws at the arrow points and I have to literally pry the lid off the bucket using a lot of force. I do not recommend these for people who may not have the strength to re-open them or have to get into them frequently."

"These buckets are hard to close all the way to get a tight seal, and once closed are even harder to open. If you are not planning on opening the tight seal very often, or do not need a tight seal, they might be all right."
