Top Customer Reviews
Purchased for food storage. They have a rubber seal in the lid. Nice and heavy pails. Exactly what I expected.
The seller provided a letter from the manufacturer certifying their pails are food grade, when used at room temperatures or below.
UPDATE: A lot of confusion about #2 HDPE for food use. Found this info.
Typical 5 gallon `food grade' buckets are made of #2 HDPE, and are opaque, not allowing light to penetrate, while often advertised or labeled as `food grade'. The typical `blue' water storage containers or barrels are also made of high density polyethylene (#2 HDPE). The thing is, if you will be storing food directly in the bucket or if you will be using the container for drinking water, be sure to verify the material is safe before you purchase. Be safe.
To be safe, the buckets that you choose to use for food storage should be `food grade' (unless you are inserting sealed Mylar bags).
All food grade buckets are made of HDPE #2 (high density polyethylene) but not all HDPE #2 buckets are food grade. Buckets that are not food grade will out-gas and leach into the container, and whatever is in the container.
HDPE #2 buckets that are not food grade will have been manufactured with a non-food-grade "mold release agent".
A mold release agent is what is used to help get the newly shaped plastic off of the hard mold that it was shaped from during the manufacturing process. Without the release agent, the new plastic shape will likely stick to the mold. Some mold release agents enable much faster production than others, but may be toxic to your health if later used with food stuffs.
If the bucket is marked specifically as food grade or USDA approved (or FDA or NSF approved), then it is food grade. Otherwise contact the supplier or manufacturer to confirm.
PROCEDURE: DEAD-BLOW MALLET
1. The cover should be placed so that the gasket channel is centered directly over the pail top rim (curl) - misalignment can damage the components.
2. The pail should be stationary and if necessary in a fixture to insure that it stays centered during application.
3. The Dead-Blow mallet should hit the cover on the top of the outer channel (top of skirt) - the targets for the mallet blows should be based on a clock face: The 1st hit should be at 6:00, 2nd at 12:00, 3rd at 3:00 and final at 9:00.
4. It is recommended that a visual Inspection take place after cover application.
After the covers is applied. When the tear tab is pulled there are 4 lugs about 3 " long located equal distance around the circumference of the lid. The pail is opened by pulling the lugs outward until they come over the top lip of the pail. The lid can be reapplied by banging the cover above the lugs until they re-engage the top lip of the pail and snap down. Once this is done the pail should reseal.
For those of you wondering what the safe plastics are for food storage... these numbers found in the little triangles on the bottom of the containers are the safe ones: #2, #4 and #5. Anything else is either not safe or iffy.
Here's how you get the lid on/off:
The lid comes with a plastic strip around the edge that you have to cut off.
When the strip is cut off, it allows the plastic tabs around the edge to separate a little, so that the lid can be put on the bucket.
To put the lid on, press at a few points around the edge to snap on.
To get the lid off, pry the plastic tabs off one at a time, going around the edge of the lid. I didn't need any special tool.
