Great deal on the buckets, thanks for posting. If you're looking for the best deal on Gamma Seal lids, Baytec is the way to go. As low as $4.95 each if you buy a dozen (they go down to $3.95, but I don't think I need a pallet of them).
For Wholesale Price loads Please Call;As Low As $3.98 in Multiple Pallet Loads. We are A Gamma2 Master Distributor.
Something tells me that you might have to buy more than 48 gamma lids to get that price -
1 - piece is 12 gamma lids
# Quan of cases Case price Per Lid
1 - 10 pieces $71.40 ea. $5.90
11 - 20 pieces $68.40 ea. $5.60
21 - 30 pieces $65.40 ea. $5.45
31 - 47 pieces $62.40 ea. $5.20
48 + pieces $59.40 ea. $4.95 576 total lids - $2,851.2 + shipping
I am not saying there not food grade, but when going to Lowes and Go to Lowes online and enter 356492 it did not say "food grade". But it does say
5-Gallon Polyethylene Bucket
FDA Approved Pail
Thicker density design for tough-duty jobs
This sort of leads me to think that they are good quality buckets. If the local store had any I would make sure that they are BPA free and buy a good dozen if they stocked them.
[Edit: Yes I would consider buying from this company on the gamma lids - however; with the Prep event coming soon to Denver I remember that the prices for gamma lids there was quite good. Next time I will bring some cash with me to stock up.]
