Product Description

Color: Red

Conveniently store food scraps in this odor-eliminating container before transferring them to an outside composter. The unit works great for egg shells, peelings, coffee grounds, and more. Attractive red ceramic with stainless steel handle.

Customer Reviews

Nice compost holder that looks great on the kitchen counter.
Ms K
The handle does not stay on, which is why the top broke in the first place.
Jen
The filter in the lid really works at keeping odors contained.

We bought this thinking it would look better than stainless steel. We love to compost and this pail sure beats keeping a bucket on the counter. However, it is heavy and the handle is poorly made. When you life up the handle it comes off of the clunky clips on the side. This really needs to be redesigned.

We removed the poor handle after the first trip to the compost. The ceramic is not only heavy, but it is also much harder to keep clean that the stainless steel. The ceramic tends to pick up stains which are hard to scrub out. And of course there is always the fear of breaking it.

As long as the filter is kept clean and fresh, the pail emits no odors. Whether you choose stainless steel or ceramic, make sure you buy some extra filters. You'll be happy you did.

Color Name: White Verified Purchase
I purchased this product after already owning the stainless version for a year. I gave the stainless to someone else because this white ceramic pedestal - looking object seemed to fit with my decor better. But what I've found is, (1) I am for the first time a bit nervous about breaking it or breaking glass tea pots when I shake the loose tea into this container, (2) it is certainly heavier than the stainless when lugging it (the weight is not a deal breaker), and (3) it does not seem to seal around the edge of the top anywhere as well as its stainless counterpart resulting in fruit flies getting attracted to it and actually inside on a regular basis - something that seemed to happen less with the stainless one. So carbon filter helps a lot but the leaky cover undermines the filter.

Still compared to not having either choice and seeing how nicely made this object is, it gets the benefit of just over half credit in my scoring.

I'd go back to stainless in a heartbeat when I feel the moment has come.

This is a great, no smell, easy to carry, easy to empty, and easy to clean compost container. The only issue in years is that the screws holding on the handle occasionally become loose but are easy to tighten up again.

The two carbon filters are effective at keeping odor from the kitchen and are reasonably priced and available but also you can wash the filters with dish soap, air dry, and re-use several times.

Color Name: Stainless Steel
We paid the premium price for this product because it is supposed to be made of stainless steel. However, the speed with which this thin metal bucket begins to rust would seem to indicate that it is NOT made of stainless steel, or it is made from the cheapest grade of stainless steel possible.
We really liked the idea of the filter in the lid, and it did look nice on the counter (for a while). Was definitely an upgrade from the cheap, plastic eyesore of a pail we had before.
HOWEVER, when you pay nearly $40.00 for a product because it is supposed to be made of stainless steel, you should expect it to last like a good piece of silverware. This does not.
Buy something cheaper, you are wasting your money on this one.

UPDATE- May 2012 - The sides of this Chinese piece of engineering have now rusted through. We woke up this morning to a puddle of brown "compost juice" all over our counter because this bucket is now leaking. Apparently the rust has gotten the best of it and there is a pinhole leak in it. Today our compost bin will be going in the recycle bin.

Although this appears to be nothing more than an expensive stainless steel bucket, it is perfect for my kitchen scrap storage. The filter really does keep the odor from my kitchen. I find it can hold about a week's worth of scraps (unless I get crazy cooking). The wide mouth allows me to put the vegie peels or coffee grounds in without touching anything inside or spilling it all over the counter. It's easy to empty, and easy to clean. It looks nice on my countertop, unlike the plastic pail I had previously. I have had this for about 6 weeks now, and the filter appears to be working just fine. I will have to find out about replacements.

We love how this looks on our counter, and it does a great job of keeping the kitchen scraps nicely contained. The filter at the top really works-- there is NO odor, even after a week or so of collecting vegetable scraps, egg shells, coffee grounds, and the like.

My only complaint is about the handle. If I'm not careful, it will come unhinged from one side as I'm carrying it--which is not something I want to happen on my way outside to the compost pile! I have learned to be very careful when carrying it.

Initially, I loved this composter- the lid fits tightly and is easy to open with one hand. It looks OK on the counter. It is light and well designed for carrying. BUT the holes in the lid are large and it quickly became a fruit fly magnet. It was such a disappointment. I am going to go back to using a cylindrical truly airtight container.

This unit is well build, and things actually fit together quite nicely. Some cheaper unit requires you to push or pull the top to get a tight seal. It is attractive looking, and the stainless steel material also means that you don't have to worry about dropping it (except the mess) and you can also take a soft steel wool and scrape the hell out of if you need to.

P.S I have yet to try this myself, but I know there are special corn-based lining for compost piles - this may make clean up easier.
