Geerpres® 304 stainless steel buckets have rolled, open rims that reinforce the bucket and prevent accumulation of dirt and bacteria. The seamless construction keeps buckets leak-free and easy to sanitize. Permanently-etched graduations are included for easier mixing. With proper care, these buckets can provide a lifetime of corrosion-free use. Experts prefer stainless steel over plastic because the surface resists germs, thus preventing the spread of nosocomial infection.
