This wiki has been updated 3 times since it was first published in November of 2018. An ash bucket is an ideal way to help keep your hearth tidy and free of dangerous hot embers that can linger for hours after you think your fire is extinguished. The receptacle can also add a stylish accent to your fireplace, but remember to store it indoors only when empty. Once embers are placed inside, it should be taken outdoors and kept away from residential structures to cool. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best ash bucket on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 14, 2018:

Selected ash buckets with safety as a top priority. For this reason no ash buckets without lids were included with our selection, as keeping the any unnoticed hot embers contained is their primary purpose.
