Customer Questions & Answers

can I use it for storing food

Rice
Asked by: ceb1
The bucket is not food grade. All food grade buckets are made from HDPE #2 but not all HDPE #2 buckets are food grade. This bucket specifically says "not food grade" in product overview.

5-gal. Homer Bucket is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 173.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! This thing is amazing! It'll carry tools, catch or hold liquids and it can even be turned upside down and used as a seat (I recommend emptying it before turning it over unless you have the lid on tight}.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good all-around bucket This is a good and cheap bucket. Every DIYer should have at least two. I use it for demolition trash, cleaning, a step stool, etc. No cracking or wearing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from There once was a man from Nantucket... In the words of Homer Simpson, "Mmmmmmm bucket." I love these buckets - inexpensive and durable. Wish they came with lids, but lids can be purchased separately. I use these buckets for weeding, carrying tools, and storing stuff (cement, sand, potting soil, salt for the driveway). I even built a dust collection system that fronts the shop vac in the workshop (I got the idea from Youtube -- the bucket prevents fine dust from clogging the shop vac filter and protects the motor). There once was a man from Nantucket, who liked to make things with a bucket. He watched things on youtube and discovered a proposal. It made him a dust-suck-disposal. ...not my best work, but you get it. Great bucket!

I use mine for everything from mixing small amounts of concrete, to putting my different small pieces of exotic woods in, to putting over the exhaust of my small tractor. I carry dirt from place to place and water for my plants. The only thing this doesn't stand up to very long is the Texas sun. It will become brittle after a couple months. Still cheap enough to use that way and then purchase another.

This 5 gallon bucket is perfect for carrying tools around the house and outside for repair jobs. I kinda wish the bucket came with a lid. Per my better-half, she told me to buy a second one in case I decided to kick the bucket later on and I didn't want to that with a load of tools in it. I would love to submit the winning photo (we could sure use the money) but I am really not ready to "kick the bucket", yet. Thank God!
