It works well, and it looks decent enough that my wife is happy to go along with me keeping it in the kitchen. I dump it out once a week, and I don't notice any smells coming from it. I would suggest following Bentley "the compost guy" Christie's advice of creating a false bottom our paper/cardboard to soak up any juices from your kitchen scraps. This cuts down on odors and adds "browns" to your bin, but more importantly, it makes the bucket easier to dump out.
If you are interested in worm composting, check out Bentley's web site on "red worm composting". Tons of free info from a friendly on knowledgeable guy. I bought my worms from him and I couldn't be happier with the worms and the personal touch via email follow-ups.
I've had no trouble at all with this.
At first, i thought the lid might even be too loose, as it slides into place with almost no friction. I can lift it out with just two fingers while holding a handful of tomato stems and zucchini ends. However, it's tight enough that not a wisp of stink gets out of this container until i open it. And no matter how stinky it's gotten, the carbon filter in the lid does just fine. (The contents can get a bit stinky pretty quickly, but we go through enough produce that it has to be emptied every day or too, so it can never get really awful.) Every time we empty it, we fill it with water and then dump that on the heap as well, which prevents anything from building up inside the container (and keeps the heap damp).
We've had no trouble with fruit flies, either, which may just be dumb luck of not throwing anything in there that already had fly eggs in it.
When it gets really full, sometimes some mold gets onto the bottom of the lid or the carbon filter, but it cleans off with a quick wipe.
It's no piece of fine art, but it looks nice enough on the counter that no guest has ever done a double-take.
In short, it does exactly what i need: it keeps my compostables out of sight and smell for a day or two until i can take them out back and dump them on the heap.
After 14 months the bucket developed three small pin holes on the bottom. (Very unusual for stainless steel.) It leaked onto our counter top so it was pretty much useless. I sent a picture of it to Norpro and they sent me another bucket. Since I have only observed a sample of one I cannot say if this is a persistent problem, but at least Norpro took care of the problem.
- This is not for use to compost inside your house. It is merely a container to hold scraps until you're ready to carry it outside to your compost bin.
- Stainless steel exterior and interior is easy to keep clean, durable, and looks sharp on the counter
- Handle is a great size
- Entire unit is a great size, even for a family who eats a lot of fresh fruits and veggies
We were previously using a tupperware with a lid half on/off, and subsequently always had fruit flies. We emptied the tupperware about every other day. I suppose we could have emptied it more frequently to help with the fruit flies, but it's a bit of a trek out to the compost pile, and I guess we were too lazy to do it until the tupperware really filled up.
This has solved multiple problems. The biggest one of course, is the elimination of fruit flies. The second one is the ugly mess you used to be able to see on the counter of fruit and veggie remains.
I thought the one-gallon size would be too small for us, since we have six people in the house, and eat a lot of fresh items. But it has been perfect. The only thing it is too small for is if you cut up something really large, like a watermelon, or other large melon. Then you end up with tons of rind, and it won't fit in here. Other than that, it is perfect for our daily use. We couldn't be happier with it!
