  • Five Gallon Storage Buckets with Gamma Lids
    By on - Verified Buyer
    We use these buckets and lids for storing wheat and rolled oats, long term. They work great. We have never had any problems with them in the five years we've used them.

    Over the past couple years, I've been purchasing these buckets and the screw on Gamma Seal lids. I will continue to keep adding more of these to my collection. They're great to store flour and wheat in. One bucket holds a 25 pound of flour or wheat. The screw on covers make these phenomenal. Oh, and the snap on comfort handles too. I highly recommend the buckets and the accessories.

  • 5 Gallon Buckets

    I only order my 5 or 6 gallon buckets (all different colors) for my various emergency preparedness items and my everyday food items from Pleasant Hill Grain. The customers service is superior as is the quality of all their products. I love that I can buy the matching Gamma lids to go with my buckets as well.

  • If you want durability, buy these.

    I had numerous... dozens....of 70 mil blue 5 gallon buckets from a major home improvement retailer to store everything from foodstuffs to med supplies in. Was reading the reviews and everyone said "check for cracks" after a year. Mine were upwards to 5 years old and every one of them was split across the bottom. I also have some of these 90 mil buckets bought closer to a decade ago, each with 35 pounds of vacuum sealed rice, and they are still as perfect as they day I bought them. NEVER AGAIN will I buy any 70 mil buckets....PHG is one of the last sources, and certainly the best deal, for 90 mil food grade buckets. I will be replacing the "lowe" quality blue buckets over then next couple months 10 at a time.

    Excellent product. Also, Gamma Lids make it so easy to get the products we need on a daily bases. We purchase all our dry food in bulk, cook and bake from scratch so these buckets and Gamma Lids are essential. Thank you for a great product excellent service and free shipping on many orders.

  • Can't rate the bucket yet, but I'll rate the service!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    So I placed an order for all of the colors of buckets and lids to store food in, not realizing that the black was not food grade. Not ten minutes after I placed the order over the internet, my phone rang and I was told that the black was not to store food. I appreciated this effort by a very nice lady to save me some trouble. I haven't had a chance to unpack the buckets, but if they are as good as the customer service, I'm going to love them!
