Difficult to carry and plastic prevails
I am disappointed in this item, and eventually will replace this bucket, one with an easier to use handle, and one with a lot less plastic. The bottom is entirely plastic, I almost hesitated to use it in a hot sauna. The birch is apparently for ambience. I was using my old salad spinner plastic bucket before this, same function. Darn! I took off the sticker, otherwise I would have returned it immediately.
