    This container size - 2qt- has so many uses. The quality is very durable. I am tempted to purchase the other two sizes

    This bucket is exactly what I needed to help me keep a closer eye on my proof! The perfect shape makes it easy to clean and the dry erase section on the lid helps me track my timing through all the steps for my bread :).

    I am in my first year in my Sourdough journey and decided to celebrate my anniversary with the purchase of proofing buckets instead of making do. How I have gone this long without them is mind boggling! I need to buy more!!

    I love these buckets for making bread. The lids don’t pop off and you can see the dough development.

    Perfect size for most recipes. I have a smaller bucket for single loaf and a larger bucket for multiple loaves. This size is just what I was missing

    I LOVE my big bucket! It holds a double batch of bagel dough. Easiest clean-up ever!

    Great sized bucket

    Posted by Pat Siebring on 1st Feb 2021

    I had a large bucket which could do a double mix but I needed something just the right size for pizza dough and a small batch of bread. Love the size and the lid that snaps nice and snug
