    Being green never looked so good as with this ceramic compost pail. This white ceramic compost pail with a silver handle is so attractive that no one will suspect what is inside. The charcoal filter on the lid does not let odors run amok....more

  • 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.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It is more of a bone white than a true white
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Solid and well sized. The vents and filter keep the smell down. The lid, however is loose and I'm starting to get bugs.

  • 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.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? spot on
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. heavy and good size

  • 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!

    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
  • Beautiful and functional

    I love this little compost pail. It's a beautiful addition to my ranch style kitchen and alleviates excessive trips out to the large compost I have in my yard. The top is not perfect (is that because it's ceramic?) but I haven't had any problem with bugs and I have owned it for 3 weeks. There does seem to be a "best" fit of the lid though so try it in every direction to find the best one for your particular pail.

  • Looks great but comes with flies and odors!

    It's really too bad that this product just doesn't work. I read the other reviews before I bought it and so I was warned about the lid that doesn't sit properly, letting fruit flies multiply and a foul odor fill the room. But did I listen? No. I wanted to believe the other reviews that said you just have to put the lid on correctly. Nope. Not true. The lid just doesn't sit evenly on the top of the container. I might try using silicone to create a better seal. We'll see. So...be warned. This product doesn't work as an indoor compost.

  • Great Little Pail

    It is the right size to sit on the counter and collect the items like tea bags, coffee grinds and other greens. Every couple of days we take out to the Composter and dump it in.

  • Didn't seal or close properly

    This compost pail looks beautiful which is why I tried it but the lid never fully sealed or stayed shut. It always felt like it wasn't lined up right, and if you didn't take out the compost every day or two it was a bad deal. The gnats would start and the smell... I just ended up throwing it away. Money wasted.

  • Love this! Very neat and easy to clean, but .....

    We really liked this compost pail. In fact, I'm coming back to buy a second one, as the first one didn't survive a fall from the porch railing to the driveway during transport to the composter out back. We have mildly salty water that rusts anything metal, so this is a great find. The only problem we have with it, and this is a big drawback, is that we could not find replacement filters ANYwhere!! At first, I didn't think about it, then started washing the filters while looking for more, but in the end, they were shrinking and wouldn't fit in the lid any more. This became a problem. It's the best solution I've found so far, so I am going to buy another. But if anyone can find filters, please post!!
