What do you use for a primary fermenter for a double batch?

I am looking for some sort of inexpensive primary fermenter (14-15 gallon capacity). I know many people use the containers that are used for LME which are about 15 gallons. They seem like they would be difficult to clean. Does anyone have a source for inexpensive containers that have a lid (that seals) so that the vessel is easy to clean?

Been using a couple LME containers here. Got them for free from my LHBS store.
Not hard to clean, I just fill them with warm or hot water and throw in some Oxyclean. Then rinse and ready to go. The one I used to secondary with a pound of leaf hops took a little work to get all the hops out.

If you can find one of these that didn't have something nasty in it, it would be easier to clean. I saw some on ebay a while back that were used for mango juice.
