"I've always used paint trays up to now, but I think I'll be tossing them in the skip and using this in future. It's so much easier. You don't have to keep gingerly refilling it, you don't have to worry about stepping on the edge of it and spilling the paint, and it's even easier to clean up. Why didn't anyone tell me?"
"When you are up the steps doing the coving, ceiling roses or whatever this is so much easier than a roller tray balanced on the top of the stepladders - I used a couple of releasable cable ties to fasten the scuttle handle to the top handrail of the steps and away you go, a lot safer. The scuttle has ridges on the inner faces like a tray for the roller to grip, just as useful for brushes."
"I've got several of these scuttles, use one constantly for use with white emulsion that I just put a plastic sheet over so I never clean it out as it's in constant use. Feels solid and reliable, handle is strong and can handle a full 10 litre load. best thing is if your the kind of person that can't be bothered to clean up things there cheap enough to throw away and buy new ones!"
"Purchased this product, as i had 30 litres of paint to use on a 50 50 water paint mix. Did the job, holds pleanty, and better than a paint tray. allows you to mix large quantity so not to keep filling up. if you have a big paint job, this is the one to have."
"These paint scuttles represent excellent value for money.With clearly marked level lines on the inside of the scuttle in both litres and gallons. A sturdy handle with a raised locator midway for hanging from a paint hook."
"a good scuttle for diy use if youre not heavy handed , the ridges for rolling the paint moulded into the sides are a bit thin but it does the job you have to put a fair amount of paint in to stop it moving around because of its lightness may not be up to regular trade use but plastic seems sturdy enough to stand most knocks"
