IMPORTANT: COVID-19 UPDATE
Today we're shipping orders for in-stock items placed October 11. Our Hampton showroom is temporarily closed. Despite high order volume, our amazing shipping team is rapidly reducing processing times—we’ve recently added 17 new team members! We greatly appreciate your business and we’re doing our very best to serve you, as Jim C. of California tells. A word to the wise: Because resupply of many product lines remains daunting, and processing times may grow again in coming weeks, there’s never been a year like this to do your Christmas shopping and other year-end buying very early!
"Above all, we’re very pleased with your courteous and honest service to us. I’m such a critic that when I praise something, it merits high praise indeed. I wouldn't bother to write this if I was not so favorably impressed."

“I purchased five buckets from Amazon and six from Pleasant Hill Grain. Pleasant Hill's buckets are thicker and the lids fit tighter. When snapped on, the Amazon bucket lids still wiggle and squeak when pushed on. I will be buying my future buckets from PHG.”

By Laura E. in MT on 12/15/2018 - Verified BuyerThis bucket is just what I wanted. They don't quite fit a 50# bag of wheat berries, but it's close so what didn't fit will get used pretty quickly. I recommend, especially with the Gamma Lid, sold separately but also sold by Pleasant Hill Grain.2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Mills on 7/14/2020 - Verified BuyerTwo of these buckets fit a 50 lb. of flour. The delivery was speedy and came in good condition. I would purchase these again.1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By Erin N. in MD on 6/1/2020 - Verified BuyerExactly as described: a white bucket. Popped the Gamma rim and lid on it and now it houses my flour. I would buy it again, and have already thought about buying more for other food storage.1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By Taia in CA on 4/24/2020 - Verified BuyerJust received our 6 gallon buckets and Gamma lids and they're much nicer than I expected. We're using them for storing grains, legumes, and dog food. They're made in the USA! Highly recommend these products. Thanks to Pleasant Hill also for getting them to us so quickly. You are a great company and very much appreciated! Thank you!1 person found this review helpful. Did you?

By Christina H. in MT on 12/8/2018 - Verified BuyerI use this with a gamma seal lid to store grain. Holds about 45 lbs.1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By Christine M. in KS on 9/24/2020 - Verified BuyerThese buckets are great! We always use them with the gamma seal lids, and they keep our grains sealed, safe from air, dust, and pests. So grateful you sell these!Was this review helpful to you?
By Debra R. in CT on 8/14/2020 - Verified BuyerI bought several of these to store dry goods so I also bought the colorful lids that can be screwed on and off after you snap on the outside ring. Putting the lids on was tough for several of the buckets and impossible for two of them. If the bucket is even slightly out of round, you cannot snap on the lid. For the ones that worked, though, I was very pleased. The other nice part of the bucket is that the handle is strong and doesn't detach even with some weighty items in it.Moderator:
Thanks for your review, Debra. In the course of selling hundreds of thousands of Gamma Lids over many years, we've learned that there are two things that can prevent installatoin on a bucket. The first is mis-sized buckets. The buckets we sell are sized properly for Gamma Lids, but not all buckets are. The second is not using sufficient force. As long as the bucket is the right size, the bucket top, which is very flexible, will conform to the Gamma Lid and will snap into place if proper force applied. Most lids go on pretty easily. For any that don't, they just need to be whacked with something bigger until they do. Placing a short 2x4 across the ring of the lid and hitting the 2x4 hard with a very big hammer (or anything else big and heavy) is our favored approach. Almost always, when a lid isn't going on, it's due to insufficient force being applied, which is usually due to fear of breaking the lid. That almost never happens, and would be very hard to do--they're extremely tough. If you ever break one during installation, we will replace it free of charge. Again, thanks for your review. We will be reaching out to you by email or phone later today. Any time you have a question or problem with an order, please contact us directly, because an issue that's brought up only in a review could easily be missed.Was this review helpful to you?
By Amy W. in NV on 8/12/2020 - Verified BuyerWe've been looking for a container large enough to hold the 40 pounds of Better Batter (gluten-free flour) that we buy 2-3 times a year. This six-gallon bucket fits the bill. It saves us from having to use two different sized buckets to hold it all.Was this review helpful to you?
