Reader Photo: 50 lb Stackable Airtight Container [55 lbs Grain Storage Capacity] – $24.65 + free prime ship

Thanks to Twitter Follower @chillindamos for this photo [and one more below]! [Connect with HBF on Twitter] This is the 50 lb stackable size with a full 25 kg bag of grain in it.  That’s about 55 lbs and there’s still some room.

The Vittles Vault line of stackable containers are very popular for bulk grain storage.

They are food grade and airtight.  They have a large easy access opening and the ability to stack makes them space efficient.  Heavy Duty construction and easy spin off and on lid.  Lid features lock-down double gaskets.  The body includes molded handles for easy carrying.  Made from FDA approved Food Grade Plastic and BPA Free.

The 50 lb rating means it should hold a sack of grain.

Gamma Seal Lids – Spin Off, Airtight Bucket Lids [Grain Storage] – $7.57 + free add on ship

Gamma Seal Lid by Gamma2


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Keeps food fresh
  • Airtight seal protects the contents
  • Easy spin on/off lid

“Transform your bucket into an easy opening, airtight, pest-proof storage container with the universal Gamma Seal Lid. When attached to virtually any 12″ diameter bucket (3.5- to 7.0 gallon), the Gamma Seal Lid provides airtight protection for the contents—excellent for literally thousands of storage applications. The resilient elastomeric gaskets keep air and contaminants out, while protecting the contents. Stackability is also a handy feature! The Gamma Seal Lid is available in a variety of food-grade colors for safe storage.”


Gamma Seal Lids [Hands on Review] are a great upgrade to standard buckets.  You attach the base of the unit to the bucket and leave that intact.  The lid screws on and off easily.  No more prying lids off.  These are also airtight.  I use buckets with Gamma Seal Lids as my primary storage for bulk grain and recipe kits.

How much grain can you store in a 5 gallon bucket?  My rule of thumb for grain storage capacity is 5 lbs per gallon.  With that estimate a  50 lb sack of grain fits in (2) 5 gallon buckets.  That’s an estimate and will vary.

IRIS Airtight Storage Container with Casters [~80 lb Grain Storage Capacity]

Airtight Storage Container by IRIS


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Premium airtight plastic food container features an airtight seal and snap lock latch to keep moisture, humidity and pests out.
  • Airtight storage bins are tapered so they’re easy to clean and scoop food from.
  • Airtight containers for food hold up to 55 pounds of dry dog food and 50 pounds of dry cat food.
  • BPA free rolling dry food storage bin includes casters for easy mobility.
  • Dimensions: 19.3″L x 14.8″W x 23.7″H

I’ve seen the capacity of this container described a couple different ways.  67 quarts and 55 lbs.  As of this posting, Iris’ via their website says that model 300686 has a 67 quart capacity.

My rule of thumb for grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  67 quarts = 16.75 gallons.  At 5 lbs per gallon that’s… 83.75 lbs of grain storage.  This is an estimate.  It should easily hold a full 50 to 55 lb bag of grain with room to spare.  These are estimates.
