The sturdy handle makes it easy to carry the filled bin outside while the contoured bottom and removable lid keep emptying simple.

It’s the Little Things:

    This compost bin is comparatively affordable, virtually unbreakable, and addresses issues you wouldn't necessarily even think of until you used a lesser product for some time, (like a gallon-size potato-salad container with a tight fitting lid).

    To wit, the inside surface is seamless and the walls join the floor in a curve, so very little matter get's stuck in the bottom and it rinses easier. The tab on the front edge of the hinged lid allow you to add to and dump the contents without touching a surface containing waste. The lid's hinge permits the lid to travel past 180 degrees and sticks in place at it's full travel for dumping. The seal of the lid is loose, so you don't run a risk of splashing or flinging gunk when you open it. The lid is also removable at the hinge, so getting the pail and lid under the faucet for rinsing is eased. I've found the shape of the pail to be ideal for fitting under my sink while having a relatively small footprint. Lastly, the handle is adequate for even a child to use.

    I was initially suspicious of the lack of venting or a filter for odors, but if you empty the pail at the end of the day, it never smells, so save your dough and pass on the expensive stainless steel products.

    I'm extremely critical of product design. This is how products should be made, and while $20 might seem like a lot to pay for potato-peel pail, you really get what you pay for.

    Edit, 2013-06-13: I've seen this product selling for two-to-five times retail price. If you're paying more than $19.99 for US domestic purchase, you might be getting swindled.

    I'm really happy with this compost pail. The size is great for my family of 3 (I empty it at least every other day) and it looks nice enough to have out on the counter. The removable lid makes it very easy to dump stuff in our compost bin and it rinses clean easily. My lid is white, not clear as in the picture, which I'm happy about. I've put coffee grounds and other strong smelling items in this container and it holds the odor in pretty well. This is a huge step up from the old coffee can I had been using.

    UPDATE: After a couple of years of regular use, the handle broke off our compost pail. I debated and debated and ended up replacing my OXO pail with a stainless steel one. Hopefully this new pail will last for many years. I lowered my rating to 4 stars. If only it had lasted longer.

    Verified Purchase
    I was looking for a kitchen compost pail to store peels and cores and other kitchen waste to take out to my compost bin nightly, or every other night, without investing in pricey bags and filters to line what is essentially a bucket. The OXO Good Grips Compost bin appealed to me because it's very simple: it stores your compostable kitchen waste on the counter or under the sink for up to a few days before taking it out to the compost bin. It's got a handle, a flip-up lid that stays up, and the inner surface is smooth, rounded plastic, allowing for super-easy rinsing. The only improvement I would make would be for the lid to snap shut. I couldn't see that in the Amazon photo, but took a shot and ordered it anyway. I don't regret it, because even though it doesn't snap shut we have not had any problem with pests getting into the bucket (or even being attracted to it. We have had no bugs attracted to the bin, even when it contained a couple days' worth of strawberry bits). It's a very servicable product, and nice and innocuous looking enough to sit out on the counter if you choose. Overall, I am very pleased with the purchase and there are no negatives. (Note: As another reviewer commented, the lid is NOT clear as pictured. It is white)

    Have owned this for just over a month now and have to say--having owned other OXO items--this doesn't disappoint, either. Very durable; have dropped it on the hard tile floor more than once. No cracks and still looks as it did when shipped. Has about a gallon capacity; interior very easy to clean and lid also easy to remove/replace when hauling the countertop compost out to the main bin in the yard.

    Am a bit confused as to a couple of low-star reviews here concerning the fact that this has no ventilation holes. It doesn't--but why on earth would you want them? This piece is meant to store your food scraps on your countertop until you can get them out to the yard compost bin--NOT be your main composter. Ventilation holes on this would result in vegetation decay odors in your kitchen. The design of this successfully keeps them contained to the bin.

    We're an empty nest couple eating clean--the quantity of fruit and veggie scraps ( and the amount of coffee I drink: grounds and filters can go in here, too) dictates generally one day's storage in this before it's full enough to take outside. If you're a family of four or more eating a lot of fresh produce, you may see yourself sending one of the kids out twice a day to dump it. That's the only drawback--but if had been made any larger, it wouldn't be the perfectly compact countertop size it is.

    Love this.

    Been looking for a basic but attractive compost bucket to put on my kitchen counter. It's unbreakable and easy to clean. Good price too.
