Kingsford Charcoal Caddy Dispenser is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for used cat litter! I tried one of the products made specifically for disposing of cat litter, great idea but a pain to use and the opening was so much smaller than my scooper there was constantly a disgusting mess around the rim. So one day I found a Kingsford Kaddy and a lightbulb went off over my head! I got a box of 13 gallon bags at the dollar store and inserted one - left a lot over the edge for tying and the lid holds the bag securely. The opening within the lid is large enough for even my large scooper to empty without making a mess, and when the lid is shut there is absolutely no odor whatsoever. With two cats, one very large who creates very large messes, I'll go a week then put the bag out each garbage pickup day. Could go longer but that's what I'm comfortable with. Thank you Kingsford for a great multi-use product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I thought that since it kept charcoal fresh and dry that it would have been air tight. But it is not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kingsford Charcoal Caddy Dispenser This product is the BEST! I bought it specifically for charcoal and it is left outdoors all year long. It is neither too big nor too small. My husband thought it was an unnecessary purchase until after several rain storms and the charcoal was still dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pet food container! We use this to store wild bird seed! It's a great sturdy container to keep outside to keep other critters out. The lid locks nice and tight to keep even raccoons out. We are able to open the one side and access the food to put in the bird feeders and when we need to refill it, we can remove the lid. It's also good for storing dog food. Eliminates bags of open food laying around.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Permanent label I was going to use this for another purpose because it was the right size and shape, but the top has a kingsford label screened into it. I really don't want that in my kitchen. the others are removable stickers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep that Charcoal Dry and Safe My puppy developed a bad habit of ripping open the bag of charcoal on our back porch and making a mess. This container solved that problem! An entire large bag of charcoal fits easily inside without a mess and it's easy to open the lid and get what you need. The handle makes it easy to carry out to the grill. I'd especially recommend this for people who live in apartments or are grilling on a deck. It would also be great for trips to the park or beach, or if you're going to grill somewhere away from home. It'll help keep the charcoal dust out of your pantry, garage, car or anywhere else you keep it. The container is durable and the bright blue lid makes it easy to spot in a dark space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from keep it fresh I've owned one of these for years, it's outdoors and keeps our cat food dry and fresh. My Son showed up with a new puppy, we went and purchased 2 more this weekend, 1 for dog food and the other for dog bones and treats, the price is right and keeps the pet food safe from the elements and wild animals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice container! I can think of sooo many things I could do with this container that I may have to get several more. Think camping........kindling, garbage, aluminum cans, water jug, dog food etc. At home.........sidewalk salt, plant dirt, outside toys, sports equipment etc. etc. etc. Kingsford you may send my check for helping you sell these! Love it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware Unless you buy HUGE bags of regular Kingsford Charcoal, don't buy this product. It isn't compatible with match-light bags of charcoal and only fits the buk size charcoal bags.. It also comes with so many stickers on it, I spent 30 minutes Goo Goning all of the advertisements off the side. Lastly the box it comes in is so huge you will think you ordered a piece of furniture. I would send it back if it wouldn't cost as much as the product to mail back. Dissapointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great idea! No more messy charcoal all over I purchased this for my husbands grill needs. It will be a Father's day gift. It's a great storage option to avoid messes and make it easy to use the briquets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient Clear Container This Kingsford Charcoal Caddy Dispenser is the perfect airtight, clear container to hold charcoal. I have an 18 lb. bag of charcoal sitting inside the container and it fits fine. The container is convenient for storage and travel with my portable grill. The container arrived as pictured with a clear base and a blue top. The customer service was great at answering my questions. Delivery was fast and the item came in good condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good for pet food too We were in the store and one of the associates suggested that we check out this container for pet food in addition to the pet food specific containers. We bought this for cat food and it works great. It was cheaper than the pet food containers, seals well to keep in freshness and is easy to pour from. We keep this bigger container in the garage and use it to refill a smaller similar container that we keep in the kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KEEPS CHARCOAL DRY Excellent price on item. Sturdy plastic which protects charcoal even if outside. Looks much nicer than dirty charcoal bag sitting out. Also, keeps small children safe from open charcoal bag as lid is difficult for young child to open. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Just For Charcoal We found the Kingsford Charcoal Caddy Dispenser to be the best container around for storing bulk birdseed! We save money buying seed in bulk and since the container is weather-tight, we don't have to use up precious patio space to store it. It stays off but along side the patio and the seed is always dry. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for storage This has been a great addition to our grilling "materials". We like it because we can still store it in the detached garage (more likely to get wet) vs taking up room in our small historical house.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still trying to figure it out! I bought this for my husband for Father's Day and it's great to hold the charcoal and lighter fluid, but I'm still trying to figure out how to get the bag so it will just pour out. It keep bunching up when I put the lid on so maybe I need to cut the bag a little more. Other than that I love it because I don't have to get my hands dirty anymore, and if it's left outside I don't have to worry about the charcoal getting wet if it rains!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I ordered this Kingsford charcoal caddy as a replacement for an identical one which I owned for a few years. The old one 'lived' on my deck year-round, which caused it to become brittle, and the plastic broke into many pieces one day as I was pouring the charcoal into the grill. I have learned my lesson, and will keep my new one out of the direct sunshine. I (obviously) love the caddy, or I wouldn't have bought a second one. I grill out a lot, and it makes life so much simpler, not having to drag a bag of charcoal up from the garage every time. The instructions show it being used with the bag of charcoal inside the caddy. The heck with that; I just pour the charcoal directly into the caddy and throw away the bag. Works great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for anyone who likes to bar b que! My husband is difficult to buy for....he has everything. When I saw the charcoal caddy I realized I had found the perfect gift for "the King of the grill!". Because of the damp weather in the Pacific Northwest, we always struggled with where to store the charcoal. It usually ended up in the garage, a distance from the backyard. Now my husband can keep the charcoal right by the grill and get rid of the bag...the usually soggy bag! He also finds it much easier to pour out the charcoal with the caddy. What a great find!!!

Community Q&A

Would this container work for storing wood pellets for an electric grill?

Asked by: GrillKing
These may NOT  perfect for pellet storage - it depends on the situation.  They are water tight, but they are NOT humidity tight.   Some may feel I'm splitting hairs, but the pellets have to remain within a certain humidity content to keep their burn rate as expected.  If you live in an are with low humidity, you can keep these outside / in your garage.  if you live in a place with high humidity and/or wide swings in humidity and temperature, you probably don't want to store pellets in these containers if you keep them outside.

Why can’t you use with instant briquettes?

Asked by: Illinigrl
Instant briquettes are infused with lighter fluid and can harm, eat through, and dissolve plastic. This Kingsford Charcoal Caddy Dispenser is designed to hold regular charcoal that is not infused with lighter fluid.
