While I get people think the price is ridiculous, the company sells only car cleaning supplies. So if they have to make a few extra dollars on what most likely is a one-time purchase given the high quality, that's fine by me. I bought two, one for clean water, and one for dirty. Once you see this bucket up close, you will quickly realize it will most likely be your last bucket purchase. It is a heavy material and very solid. It does not scratch easily either, so you don't have to worry about dragging it along the driveway while washing. I bought this to go along with their dirt strainer, and it fits that perfectly.
-1 star because the lower rim surround that holds the handles (on both) is unfinished and the edges razor sharp. I cut myself pretty good, so always use the handle and very bottom for pouring.
