No one will guess this handsome Le Chef square crock is collecting food scraps for composting, so you can keep it right on the kitchen counter. Made of sturdy ceramic, glazed inside and out, this compost crock won't stain or absorb food odors.

The compact design of the crock lets it fit neatly on your counter, eliminating the need for regular trips to the kitchen trash can as you cook. The large capacity makes it easier to prepare entire meals without trips to the waste bin, and the square shape nestles compactly in a corner when not in use.

  • Love it.

    I had this by my sink and used it for 6 years before it was accidently cracked. We used it tons 'cause we're mostly vegetarians. It held more than most and was attractive yet inconspicuous in my white kitchen. I quit using the charcoal filter but never noticed any odor problems. (I think composters that seal stink most.) So bummed it's out of stock now.

    The lid doesn't fit properly and fruit flies become a huge issue.

    Verified Purchase

    Like the look of this Pail on the counter but sorry to say it does not serve well as a Compost Pail. The Lid does not fit no matter which way you turn so plenty of Fruit Flies. Have to stop using in the house but does make a great flower pot.

    It looked nice but didn't last. Ceramic in the kitchen that is used daily near granite countertops is just a bad idea. The pail cracked within the first month and then the top broke when it slipped off the top. If it had been made with more sturdy ceramic it might have worked but it is very thin. Replaced it with a stainless steel version and have been very happy.

  • Attractive but wish it had a better seal
    Verified Purchase

    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.

    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
    Verified Purchase

    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.

    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!

    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.
