I don't see the threaded lid as a plus, though, unless there is a gasket that fits super-tight inside to make a seal.
Some of the bucket lids I have are complete PIAs to remove. Sometimes I have to put my knee in the middle and pull back to break the seal. More Beer has the softer lids which are nice, but my newer buckets have the hard plastic lids that really grab on. I never understood why the lid tools exist, but after buying True Brew buckets, I get it. Still don't use one, but I get it.
Threaded lid is nice and simple.
