  • Holds smell, a bit heavy

    Others complained that it didn't contain the smell because of a loose fitting lid, but even with a lid that doesn't seal, it doesn't get stinky unless food is left in their too long and you then lift the lid. The ceramic material does make it a bit heavy.

  • Fly magnet

    Lid does not close tightly, so it attracts insects. Even though !i cannot smell anything I have to keep it outside,Mohicans completely defeats the point!

  • Loved it!

    Loved it until I slightly dropped it in the sink and it broke it after a year of enjoying it. My fault but I feared it would happen every time I took it to the garden and washed it.

  • Nice Pail

    I like the pail and it definitely keeps odors from wafting into my entire kitchen. If you don't empty it every other day you start growing science experiments.

  • Attractive but wish it had a better seal

    As mentioned, the only real complaint I have is that the lid is loose so it slides around a bit and leaves openings. Even when the lid rests on the bin fully lined up, there is a miniscule gap just big enough for a gnat to get in and out. I've had this two weeks and just started seeing a lot of them. Returning this would be a hassle, but I am going to discontinue using it and buy another one. Shame too, because it really is attractive.

  • compost pail

    This compost pail looks very nice on my counter and virtually no smell because of the charcoal filter. I have a large compost outside and this handy counter one lets me collect scraps over several days then i can take it out and dump it in the larger one. Since i have started my composting i have less garbage and will use the finished compost in my garden in the spring.

  • just what I needed

    the top air filter is very good. The lid fits tightly and the capacity is large enough that I can get by almost a week before trotting out to the compost pile...and NOTHING SMELLS BAD!. It cleans easily.

  • Great

    Just have to be careful to set lid on just right otherwise a gap is left. It's pretty and holds quite a bit. I love it!

  • I'm very happy with it.

    My lid fits well (some reviewers were saying there was too wide a gap). I love the look of it and the filter really does the job.
