OXO Good Grips Compost Bin
It's Easy Being Green.
Easy to Clean
Smooth, crevice-free interior walls prevent foods and liquids from building up, and the entire bin is dishwasher safe.
No More Mold
Lid closes but doesn’t seal, locking in the smell while allowing in a small amount of oxygen that prevents bacteria and mold from immediately forming.
Contoured bottom, removable lid, and rotating handle make emptying simple.
Here's a Good Tip
No need to empty your compost bin after every meal! Keep this sleek Compost Bin on your countertop in the time between several meals and make one trip to the outdoor composter to save time and energy.
Stop throwing food scraps in the garbage! Designed with the home cook in mind and attractive enough to live on the countertop, the Oxo Good Grips Compost Bin stores food scraps until they can be transferred to an outdoor composter. The flip-up lid can be opened and closed with one hand. Smooth interior walls prevent food and liquids from building up and make clean up simple. The sturdy handle makes it easy to carry the filled bin outside while the contoured bottom and removable lid keep emptying simple.

Top customer reviews
Turns out its fine for my daily coffee grounds, banana peels, etc. and takes up much less space than the ginormous pot I had been using.
It's not an 'air tight' seal like a gasket would provide but the ring of the lid is complete (no gaps) and it fits snugly when closed. Not sure if an ant could even get inside but time will tell.
All in all, I like it.
I added some pics for scale
Just noticed my pics are gone, not sure why. Added them back. Let's see if they stay this time.
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.
The construction of the container is great - there are no seams inside which means that you do not have to worry about gunk getting trapped and going off. The lid is easily and quickly detached to make emptying easier and the handle folds completely down which again ensures that you don't have issues with getting everything out.
We rinse our container our after each empty with a little cold water and have had no ours etc (unlike with other containers that we have used). Once every couple of weeks we use hit water and soap and have had no issues with smell or bugs which is excellent considering that ants can be an issue.
In general the OXO Goodgrips products work really well and this is no exception - I would happily buy this product again
