Comments about Product: This size is perfect for our condo-sized fireplace. It is ver sturdy and the lid fits tightly. We orderd the all black, whic goes well with our wrought iron tools. I makes us both happy as it is very functional and keeps all the ash contained and yet is so nice looking!
Comments about Product: Shame on the person who wrote the negative review because(s)he thought it was appropriate to empty hot coals directly from a fire into this container. When used properly (warm or cold ashes from a previous fire or cold ashes) it is beautiful and functions perfectly. Rare to get something that is just as advertised!
Comments about Product: Given as a gift, and was just what the recipient was looking for. She started using it that day because the one she was using did not have a cover and ashes flew out. The design was very nice and the color was perfect.
Comments about Product: wanted to use it to remove hot ashes from fireplace, it is not very thick so I was afraid to leave them in the cabin so I had to take them outside quickly & place them on plain dirt. It is light weight.
Comments about Product: We are using this as a kindling bucket. It is the perfect size. The only issue we have is we wanted black and it is more of a charcoal gray. My husband painted it flat black. Now it is perfect! As always service at Plow & Hearth is exceptional.
Comments about Product: I order this in January as a gift for my son.
However, it only arrived the beginning of May and it's past the fireplace season.. We'll see how it does this winter.
Wish Plow and Hearth had notified me it was going to be shipped.
Comments about Product: This bucket is grey, not black as I expected. Should say "charcoal GREY not charcoal BLACK" in the description. The lid doesn't fit as tightly as I expected, either; I thought it would be airtight. It's not. It does what it's supposed to. I would prefer if it were black. I would recommend this bucket to a friend but would tell them what I've said here.
Comments about Product: This is certainly functional - so far, but it isn't much to look at. I expected it to be much darker since it's listed as 'charcoal black'. It just looks unpainted. I intended to keep it on my hearth, but won't be doing so.
Comments about Product: We recieved this buicket in the mail the day our friends new shed burned down. They were dumping ash from their fireplace (that sat in an aluminum bucket for 2 days outside),into the compost pile behind their shed.The ash ingnited the shed. I ordered another double-bottom ash bucket imediently for my daughters home too!
Comments about Product: I really needed an ash bucket for my fireplace. This one looked nice on the website, and it is nice I guess but it's kind of on the plain side. I had thought I would keep it on my hearth thinking it would look pretty and be functional. It's functional and does what it's supposed to, but I don't keep it on the hearth afterall, it didn't look as nice as I thought it would. I still like it, I still need it, but it's just not as charming as I thought it would be. :o)
Comments about Product: This is a nicely designed, attractive product that sits adjacent to our wood stove in plain view of guests. We use it regularly. It holds a sufficient volume of ash and hot coals to be highly functional. It does not transmit heat to the floor.
Comments about Product: Looks so nice sitting on the hearth. I use it to hold kindling and then to remove ash when fireplace is cleaned. The double bottom makes it very sturdy thus handles the kindling with no problems. I opted for the copper one since I have copper studs on my leather sofa. The bucket enhances the decorative sofa studs nicely.
Comments about Product: I ordered the copper, but received the black. After taking a second look, I'm glad the wrong product was sent. The black is attractive. The top fits on the bucket securely, snaps in place. I haven't used the product yet, but by inspecting it I'm sure it will more than serve it's purpose. And it's much more attractive than other buckets I've seen.
Comments about Product: We liked this so much we got another! The price was right - and it makes life easier to have 2 when you need to empty ashes before you can get out to the ash pile! Love the look(we bought the copper) and it is safe to keep inside after you've put hot coals inside. A great product.
Comments about Product: We have only had the black ash bucket for a month and it looks great next to our fireplace. We use it every day and it is the perfect size and easy for an elderly person to handle. I love the tight-fitting lid and especially the fact that it has a double bottom. (Our other buckets burned thru and damaged the floor). Good product!!
Comments about Product: I was pleased by Plow and Hearth's immediate willingness to cover return postage for an item that did not live up to its description or picture in the catalog. Although I was disappointed in the ash bucket, this kind of service leaves me inclined to try something else in the future.
Comments about Product: Bought this as a Christmas gift for my sister who lives in Colorado and uses a wood burning stove to warm her home. She says it is just perfect and that it handles lots of ash, doesn't burn her hardwood floor, and is easy to empty.
Comments about Product: Although it performs as it should as a ash bucket, you can only use when ash is completely cool ( not very likely for those that burn a lot for warmth) or the bucket tarnishes and paint flakes off making the bucket not very attractive, so in my opinion it is over priced and an eye sore after only one burning season.
Comments about Product: I expected it to be functional but I didn't realize how attractive it would be for such a reasonable price. It sits next to our fireplace in the living room and has a classic look...I could not be more pleased.
Comments about Product: I love the way this matches the log holder and the fatwood holder we previously aquired from Plow and Hearth. They are a beautiful addition to our mountain home and an accent to the stone fireplace. Thank you for a quality product that is as beautiful as it is functional!
Comments about Product: We purchased this ash bucket because we not only needed it but liked the way it looked. It holds alot of ashes and also looks attractive sitting by our wood stove. The lid sits on the bucket nicely and even though I put some ashes in the bucket in the morning and evening each day, I only empty it about every 3 days.
Comments about Product: Perfect solution to getting rid of excess hot coals and ash from woodstove while still in use. We push most of the hot coals to the side and then scoop out the excess and place in this ash bucket, put lid on, then set it on the concrete porch for cool down and safe disposal later. Safe, although it can still get hot to the touch if placing hot coals in so use fireplace gloves! Attractive enough to keep near the woodstove.

Perfect solution to hot ashes
Comments about Product: You can put the hot embers in the container and not have to put it outside. The cover keeps the ashes contained and the bucket stays cool right on the hearth. Holds several burnings of leftover embers.
Comments about Product: We use the bucket because we bought it, but I would like to see a tight fitting top. The top just lays on the bucket and where we live in Colorado the wind would just blow it right off and then cinders would begin flying too. The double bottom is nice but without a lid that stays put the bucket itself is only somewhat usable to us.
Comments about Product: Several people commented over Thanksgiving that it was too attractive to use as an ash bucket. We got the copper one because we have other copper accents but it was a hard choice. It is very attractive sitting by the fireplace.
Comments about Product: I purchased this as a gift for my son's new home. Since they have a baby, we wanted something with a lid. This is very well made (I tried some from other companies) - I will be ordering another for us.
Comments about Product: We were looking for a thick bucket with a lid to take ashes out of the house without smoke going everywhere or burning our hands. I had looked everwhere and could not find the perfect fit. This bucket is exactly the right size and what I needed... Also looks nice as well as being useful.
Comments about Product: This is exactly what I was looking for! It holds hot ash safely until it is cool enough to be disposed of. Our wood stove is on the smaller side, and with cold Montana Winters it gets used quite a lot. Ash fills up somewhat quickly and I needed someway to dispose of hot ashes to maintain a fire. This product is perfect!

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
