The other review said that their container chipped easily, so I was a little concerned, but decided to try this anyway. I was very pleased with the quality of the container when it arrived and have used it a bunch with no chipping issues. I would definitely buy the same thing again.
I was looking for something for soaking pads for months and this had everything I was looking for and more. It's study. It's attractive. And it's a great size...big enough to fit several pads, but not too big to take up too much space in the bathroom or too big to be heavy when changing the water. This is an excellent product and the price is a really great value.
I didn't have another bucket, so I looked into buying this one. I was wary about the quality because of the reviews about the chipping; however, I haven't experienced any problems with chipping. I think this is a quality enamel container. It is a good size and can easily be kept in an under-the-sink cabinet.
This item was much smaller than I expected, but it is very light weight and the lid sits snugly on the base. If you really squish you can soak about 5 overnight pads at once. The compact size is good for those who want to keep the soaking pot in a concealed area. It is light weight so it is easy to change/dump soak water. The handle makes that really easy.
This enamelware container doesn't rust, but the enamel seems to chip easily, and when it does, the metal is prone to rusting. When my container came in the mail, it was chipped in a few places. I e-mailed Gladrags about this, and they promptly sent me a new one. I have been very careful with it to make sure that the enamel will stay intact, but I wonder why they don't just make these soaking containers entirely out of stainless steel?
I looked up the company these come from and they are only minimally less expensive from the source so I decided to ship everything together, saving the few dollars i spent extra on the bucket itself, and I've been happy with the product thus far. There is some small chipping around the handle parts but nothing to effect my soaking bits.
I am happy with this product. It looks nice on the outside and holds my pads as it should.
I tried using other recycled containers to soak my pads, but I like this pot better. It is sturdy and holds about 9 day pads. I just recently started soaking my pads in OXO Brite and that works really well.
There were a few chips on the container when it arrived, but I used a little white enamel paint to cover those places, and that worked really well. I am glad for a bucket with a fitting lid. This helps family members who share the same bathroom. I can still use cloth pads, and not gross everyone out when I need to soak them. Family members seem quite pleased, too.
I'm happy to have this little enamel pot, now that I'm totally sold on reusable pads. It sits right next to the toilet, cute as a button. I store several in here at once (after using Ruby's Red Wash, of course) and although it smells a little funky after keeping it closed and stored for a few days, it washed out just fine and it's great to through all your pads into the wash at once and have them come out clean and ready for next month.
