This is an empty 5 gallon plastic bucket with gasket lid. These are food grade buckets made of polyethylene and have a thickness of about 75 mil. All storage buckets have a sturdy metal wire bail with a plastic hand grip. These buckets include a standard white lid with a rubber gasket to create an optimal seal. Buckets are stackable up to about 4 layers depending on contents. Heavier contents are better stacked with fewer layers.
