High Quality Food Grade 6 Gallon Buckets w/Lids – $8 Each, When you Buy 10

Emergency Essentials Buckets and Gamma Seal Lids

Nutshell:  Emergency Essentials has great prices and reasonable shipping on on Food Safe Buckets and Gamma Seal Lids.


Bucket Sale.  As of this posting, Emergency Essentials has 6 gallon food safe buckets and lids on sale for $10.95.  Buy 10 or more and they drop to just $8. Shipping to most US addresses is based on an economical tiered model that maxes out at 12 no matter how much you order.

For some pricing clarity, 10 x 6 Gallon Buckets and lids = $8 per bucket, 10 x 6 Gallon Buckets no lids = $9.50 per bucket.  These are $1.50 less than 6 gallon buckets without lids when you buy 10 or more.  Check Emergency Essentials for up to the minute pricing and availability.


Food Grade 5 and 6 Gallon Buckets are available with either Standard Lids or with airtight Gamma Seal Lids.  I own and use 6 gallon buckets with Gamma Seals for my primary grain and kit storage.  See my Hands on Review

Gamma Seal Lids are a great upgrade.  You attach the base of the unit to the bucket and leave that intact.  The lid screws on and off easily.  They are airtight and no more prying lids.

About the 5 and 6 Gallon Buckets: “These buckets are different from what you will find at a hardware store. These are high quality, thick (90 mil) food grade plastic bucket, so there aren’t harmful chemicals that may affect your stored goods.”

My rule of thumb for grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  With that estimation two 5 gallon buckets would hold a full 50 lb bag and two 6 gallon buckets would hold a full 55 lb bag (plus a bit more).

These buckets are food grade so they could also be used as fermenters.  Just pick up an airlock grommet to add an airlock.  If you do that, I would go with the standard lid option, not the gamma seal option.

Airscape Bucket Insert – Grain Storage

91SXZ1ZfW5L._SL1500_

AirScape Bucket Insert by Planetary Design.  Made with BPA-Free and food-safe material.  Designed to fit standard 3.5 – 7 gallon bucket sizes.  Forces out oxygen.  Insert only, bucket not included.

Buckets are a great grain storage container.  My rule of thumb is 5 lbs per gallon.  So, a 5 lb bucket would hold about a half bag of grain.

Also Consider: The Gamma Seal Lid – Gamma Seal Lids have an outer ring (that typically stays installed) along with a center section that spins on and off.  It’s airtight and easy to open and close.
