Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Asdar Great size, lid was a disappointment
I ordered the trash can online and picked it up at the store. While checking out I realized the lid would not come off and the handle wouldn't rotate to lock the lid either. I went to pick out another version of the same trash can, but the others on the shelf were not any better. Disappointing because the trash can is the perfect size.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by siuotis85 Works fine for what we need
We use the trash can for dog waste outside. Very sturdy and because of the locking lid it helps prevent odors. Would definitely recommend this to others.

Bought this for a ash can at our fireplace. Looks great and keeps our rustic theme in our livingroomliving room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John Definitely Tight!
I use this to store ash from a grill until it gets a bit full, cools, and then dump it in the woods with leaves and other brush. It is wide enough for the ash to slide in without spilling, which was important. The lid goes on so tight that it takes a few seconds to pry it off, so I only place it on lightly.
If you want to store bird food, it certainly goes on tight enough to keep animals from getting into it.

This 6gal. bucket will hold only 3gal. Very misleading!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by negriljerry Lid is NOT waterproof!
The lid on this pricey can is neither WELDED or RIVETED, instead attached by a method that lets light - and water - in. We learned this after $25 worth of seed was ruined. I repaired the construction flaw with some JB Weld, but that should not have been necessary. Not recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roblimo Great BBQ Ash can
Nowadays I BBQ and grill on a little Weber Smokey Joe Gold. I put the charcoal out by closing all the vents, and when it's cooled a bit I set my fire starter chimney in the ash can and pour the coals and ashes into it straight from the grill, which I then clean with some citrus-based cleaner inside and out.
Then I pick up the chimney and shake it, still in or over the ash can. This way I save charcoal pieces big enough to relight, right in the chimney where I'll need them, while ashes and charcoal bits stay in the ash can until it's ready to be emptied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by naruto worked for a non intended use
bought this to build a small foundry in and it worked great. my first batch of metal was a 10lb brass melt. it preformed buitifully. i had coated the insides of the can with a 1 inch thick coat of a 50/50 plaster of paris to sand ratio. even with this coating, the outside of the bucket got REALLY hot. i measured the temp on the outside of the foundry, and it was 1000 or so degrees. then again the inside while i was melting the brass was around 2300 degrees. (i know this because my graphit crucible was a bright orange color.
