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.

Are there lids available for this bucket?

Asked by: Homey53
Not at the Seaside CA store. Web site says the closest lid is 85 miles away! I'll just use plywood and a brick for now to keep the squirrels out...

I use these for a ton of projects - heck, I use one for a trashcan in my garage. These are much more sturdy than the ones I have picked up elsewhere. They hold a lot of weight and the handles don't pop off easily like others do. They are at a good price point so sometimes after using them on a particularly dirty job I just throw them away and buy another. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending these

Does all the things you would expect a bucket to do: holds stuff, liquid or dry, you can even fill it with ice and beer. It's a heck of a bucket, and the orange color makes it easy to find in the wilds of tanzania and my garage. Yep, it's certainly a bucket, no doubt about it. Seriously, a decent deal on a bucket if you need one not already contaminated by oil, sheetrock mud, or spilled beer.

I was needing to build some boxes for storing some seldom used tools, hardware, and some tool jigs seldom used. I figured my material cost of 5 boxes and I decided to use these buckets with lids . Orange they stand out on the shelf and have written on each bucket with magic marker it's contents. This makes them easy to carry and easy to get the right bucket

You can’t pick it up full of dirt without the handle grip breaking. The blue ones from the competitor seem stronger. But it does the job ok. I have used them also as planters. You can drill holes in the bottom about 1” diameter and it’s a cheap planter pot. I put some aluminum tape over the top edge so it won’t get crunchy in the sun.

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!

Although HD's bucket head wet & dry vacuum was designed to be used with this bucket, the wall of the bucket is not strong enough to support vacuuming up water (see photos). This one issue is enough for me to to rate it 4 stars instead of 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If one needs a lot of buckets, buying them in... If one needs a lot of buckets, buying them in bulk online is the way to go. I bought 20 of these buckets to load 200 square feet of broken tile into my truck to take to the recycling center (they crush up debris for use in road base). They have also been used to mix thinset for a tiling project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good manufacturing design, open on top, closed on bottom... Very good manufacturing design, open on top, closed on bottom and sides, rounded shape prevents materials from building up in the middle. Handle works well right from the store already assembled, it swivels up for carrying and down for storage. The lid (sold separately), fits well and tight.
