In-Home Composting Bins

Natural Home Set of 2 Replacement Composter Filters – good product and fits but still have trouble with fruit flies

Perfect for my compost pail. After reading reviews about various ill fitting compost pail filters, i was a little apprehensive about ordering these. However, they fit the pail (natural home stainless steel compost bin) perfectly and seem to reduce odor quite well.

Fit well with my stainless steel composter. No odor and unlike others i had no problems with fruit flies,just make sure you don’t wait until your waste is all the way to the top to get rid of it. And try to keep the filters dry from food so it doesnt mold.

Great product at a great price. The filters are exactly what i need. The price i paid for them was lower than i thought it would be.

  • good product and fits but still have trouble with fruit flies
  • Perfect fit for Natural Home composter
  • Super fit. Very happy

Takes the pain out of composting. Probably the only reason i agreed to try composting was that natural home made it clean, not smelly and easy.

I had to cut one down to fit the small kitchen one, but it worked.

Bought these to go with the natural home stainless steel compost bin, they fit fine and i will be all set for a year, since it says they are good for 6 months. Just started using it, so not sure if that is accurate, but will see.

We love our little ‘green bin’ for recycling household vegetable clippings, but could not find replacement filters (these prevent the funky smell from escaping). We were happy to find these filters online, and they fit the bill perfectly.

A bit large, but not really a problem. These filters are good, but they are about 3/4′ diameter too large for our compost pail lid. Nevertheless, they are useable and doing the job they were designed to do. For that reason, i give them a four-star rating.

Right product, right price, right time with right packaging.

Fits in our composter and priced at the time i bought it economically.

Perfect fit for natural home composter. I bought the composter in the spring of 2012, and was unable to find replacement filters all this time. Finally i went on amazon and found them. They are a perfect fit for the stainless steel composter. Despite the fact that i had the same filter in for almost a year, there was no odor and unlike others i had no problems with fruit flies as long as the composter was kept closed. I also took care not to get food or moisture directly on the filter. I would recommend this product.

Exactly the size i needed for my compost pile.

Work well, fit well, but expensive. Apparently my composter is sort of a weird size, and these are the only filters i can find that fit them. They’re thick and work quite well — they last several weeks at least, and i’ve never had trouble with flies or smells. But why are they so expensive?.A much cheaper option is to buy a big roll of the charcoal filters they make for aquariums and cut out circles of the right size. If you double them up you’ll get the same thickness as these filters and they seem to last just as long. Anyway, these are great if you want exactly the right size and are a little lazy (which i sometimes am 🙂 and don’t want to deal with the diy solution.

They hold up well and definitely hold the odors in.

Item was the same diameter as specified in the description; however, it was not as thick as the ones i have ordered in the past. I will wait and see if i have to replace the filter quicker because of the thickness.

Cut them to fit and they’re fine.

Finally filters that fit my canister. I’ve had trouble finding these in stores (usually they are too small). You would think if you buy what appears to be a standard sized canister at a store that they at least would carry the correct filters for replacement. These keep odors in the canister and not stinking up the kitchen when the can is filled with kitchen scraps. In the winter, i tend to not want to schlep out to the compost bin as often so i let it get up to the top before i dump it. These charcoal filters keep that from becoming a stinky problem.

Right product, right price, right time with right packaging.

Received the carbon filters as promised👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻.

Good product and fits but still have trouble with fruit flies. This product fits and there is no odor, i am happy with that. But after a few days, even with emptying daily, fruit flies breed and lay eggs in this filter. Then there are tons of fruit fly larvae. I have not been able to solve the fruit fly problem yet even with apple cider vinegar and soap mix traps etc. It solves the problem of odor well and it did fit the compost container, just wish i could get rid of these fruit flies.

Norpro 1.5 Gallon Stainless Steel Compost Keeper : no smells with lid on!

Ok, our last collection container was a plastic bag so we had nowhere to go but up but i’m just so happy with this. No matter how smelly it gets inside the can, i’ve never had a whiff of it come out of the can unless i open it. It’s attractive enough that i don’t mind leaving it on the counter (which is where it needs to be) and it’s easy to empty. Our fruit fly problem has dropped exponentially since we stopped using the plastic bags as well. The size of this is perfect for us. We’re a family of three and we prepare veggies or fruit at least once a day. We end up having to empty this about once every week or so. Maybe more if we have a big job (like thanksgiving).

I’m a member of a csa so i produce a large amount of compost. This keeper holds a large amount, fits nicely on my counter and looks attractive (as apposed to many other keepers you’d rather not see on your counter every day). But the best part about it is the charcoal filter. I’ve had food waste in it for up to two weeks and no smell. The filter allows it to gas off, so when you open the lid you don’t feel like choking.

Norpro 1.5 Gallon Stainless Steel Compost Keeper

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Holds 1.5 gallons/6 quarts
  • Made of attractive stainless steel with a brush finish and a sturdy stainless steel handle.
  • Includes an odor preventing charcoal filter set – do not rinse the charcoal filter – replacement filter set 84F are available
  • Offers a stylish way to recycle food scraps
  • Hand wash with warm, soapy water

I recently moved and can no longer have a compost pill in my back yard, but when i did this was perfect to take the compost out. Even thou i cannot compost anymore, i still use it to collect that type of material. The only problem i have had with it is that the filter falls out into the compost every once in a while.

The bin is great with one exception. The washer inside the bin that connects the handle to the bin is not stainless steel. It is rusting and bleeding now only after about a month of use. I’m planning to buy a replacement washer and that will make the bin perfect. I juice and cook a lot, so i have to empty it pretty much every day. Still this one of the largest on the market that i’ve seen for the countertops.

We previously kept a small pail near the stove for cooking scraps, coffee grounds, etc. It got filled too soon, often several times a day. This pail solved that problem, but it is so large it gets hard to lift when it’s full (we often include liquids, like unused coffee because our compost needs them in our dry climate). It takes a lot of space on the counter, so much that it looks out of place, but we prefer keeping it on the counter to bending over several times a day to retrieve it from a cabinet. It is well made, stylish in a utilitarian way that is in keeping with our new stainless kitchen, easy to keep clean, and the odor filter still works after several months of use. We have not replaced the filter, partly because of reviews on amazon about the media offered not fitting this pail. Hope that doesn’t become a problem.

Norpro 1.5 Gallon Stainless Steel Compost Keeper : I bought this product several weeks ago from amazon to replace a plastic bin that had cracked. Although i think it is expensive, it is sturdy and a good value. It has no parts to break or wear out and should last forever (or very close). It is well made with a good-fitting lid. Being stainless steel, it does not retain odors and it holds a lot so you do not have to empty it often. We have a septic system so i use my garbage disposal sparingly. All of our food wastes go into this pail (i cook family meals daily), and i only empty it a couple of times per week into a recycle trash bin. I use 3-gallon compostable bags (biobag) to line the pail and they fit perfectly inside.

Meh, but it’s big – that’s nice. . This looks pretty, and functions ok, but there’s a few flaws. Pro’s:-stainless steel – smooth outside means easy cleaning. -big – house of 4 people and we only have to dump compost every few days. -the charcoal filter thing allows moisture to escapecon’s:-the inside has ridges that make it hard to clean. Just make the inside smooth like the outside. -the charcoal filter ring-holder doesn’t stay in place very well – almost but not really. When it falls out it’s loud and surprising. -fruit flies lay eggs under the charcoal filter, and get in through the air vents, as well as the loose fitting lid.

Before buying this product, i had been saving kitchen compost in a bowl on my counter. I had to dump it in my outdoor compost bin daily because of the smell and the fact that it was unsightly. With the norpro compost keeper, i make less trips to the outdoor compost pile. It looks good on my counter, and doesn’t smell at all.

Big, cleans easy, empties easy, the lid fits. I previously had a ceramic compost jar. This may be slightly less stylin’ but only a little and it performs 10x better. I didn’t have any of the lid fit issues i read in another comment. It cleans easier, it empties into the big composter easier, it’s markedly bigger. Nothing more to say, i mean, it’s a compost bucket.

Even thou i cannot compost anymore, i still use it to collect that type of material. The only problem i have had with it is that the filter falls out into the compost every once in a while.

This is great for keeping in your kitchen, on the counter, for composting. There is a liner in the lid that keeps it from smelling bad and gnats can’t buzz around it. It’s handy to drop composting ingredients into in the kitchen and you don’t have to take it out to the yard until you’re ready to.

Was using a plastic bucket for many years that smelled and had flies growing in it and was quite unsightly. Finally had enough and bought this. Holds quite a bit and the smell is gone. The ‘other half’ wanted to know why the bucket was not good enough anymore and was told to get out of my kitchen. Also, it looks much better than an open bucket.

We have had this compost pail for a little over a year and it is rusting around the lid pretty bad. I am contacting norpro to see what their warranty is and i will update this comment pending there actions. I do love my pail and use it daily. I just think for the money it cost, it shouldn’t be rusting.

This is a wonderful compost keeper. It is large, so if you do not do much in the way of cooking with eggs, fresh veggies, etc, you may not need something quite so large. The first week i wanted it to be completely full before i took it to the pile (with the biodegradeable bags you just toss the whole mess in the pile), but found that it took a long time to fill. So i could smell it when i took the lid off to add scraps. So now i just empty it more frequently. When i use my juicer i have way more veggie debris so it fills up more quickly. So do consider the volume of food scraps you generate, and consider perhaps a smaller size if you don’t need this large one. It is lovely, however, and i like the way it looks on my counter.

We use this for table scraps for our chickens. We have used various types of these for years. Never a nice stainless one like this though. So easy to handle and clean.

Bought replacement carbon filters at the pet store. Bought replacement carbon filters at the pet store. Cut up a tyvec paint suit from lowes to make a prefilter. This thing will last forever.

This is a great little pail. 5 gallon size is perfect for me and i only have to empty it once a week, or close to it. It was actually bigger than i thought it would be. I needed to empty one gallon containers every night or two. No smell, no nats and the handle is attached well and is good and strong. The stainless steel cleans easily and does not hold any odors; one quick rinse under the facuet and it is ready for the next load. It looks ok sitting on the counter which makes it very convenient to use. It is not what i would call ‘pretty,’ but it is much better looking than an old coffee can 🙂 it is nice enough that the wife ‘allows’ it on the counter and big enough to keep me happy.

Almost perfect compost container. My score should really be 4. 5 stars but amazon won’t let me. The container does everything you bought it for:goodstore food waste in the house with no smell. Store food waste while passing my wife’s ‘looks ok in the kitchen’ test. Provide a good handle so when it’s time to make the trip to the compost pile, nothing falls apart or breaks. Okcleaning is good but not perfect. If you make frequent trips a quick wash with the hose cleans it out fast with no residue. (negates size)if you actually wait till it’s filled, and depending upon the fluid level of the waste product, you will need to do some hand washing. Negativeit’s not air tight, so you will get fruit flies.

This canister looks great on the counter, holds quite a lot of table scraps, and best of all – no odor. The carbon filter in the lid does what it says – i haven’t smelled a thing. I line the pail with a small plastic bag for easy clean up, and empty it into my composter every few days. I think this is a great little item.

It’s not too small and not too big. We never smell anything coming from it. The filters are doing their job.

VonShef Compost Bin Stainless Steel – Includes Odor Absorbing Filter, Really like the filter in the lid

Top of ceramic container from a different company broke. Was looking to replace it and found this. It is light, metal and the handles don’t fall off as did the ceramic one. Great product and great price. Highly recommend this container.

One of the best compost bins i’ve used. Looks great, keeps smells in. But i prefer to use compost bags to make disposal easier, and it doesn’t do a good job of holding the bags. The other problem is that with bags, the lid becomes too tight, which makes it harder to use (and also tears the bags). If you don’t use bags, then there’s no much to fault with this item.

After many years of using a plastic folgers coffee container that i dug out of the trash at work, i finally broke down and purchased this wonderful compost container. I only wish i had gone this route sooner. I still keep it under the sink, even though it’s lovely enough to be sitting on the counter top. Even more than its good looks, the things i really love about this container are: 1. ) the inside is smooth, so not much (if anything) sticks to it, and rinsing it out is a breeze; 2. ) it’s large enough to hold a lot of food scraps, but small enough to fit in limited space; 3. ) the lid fits nicely, keeping the mice from thinking we run an under-the-sink smorgasbord, and the charcoal filter prevents any nasty smells from taking over the kitchen; and 4. ) the handle allows for an easy trip to the compost pile when the container finally needs to be dumped. Add to all of that an incredibly good price, and all i can say is: buy it– it’s worth it.

Comments from buyers

“Makes composting easy and attractive!, Save compostables in your kitchen with no bad odors!, The answer to my dreams. well almost.”

Compost a lot for my gardens so this was nice to have. I compost a lot for my gardens so this was nice to have. The lid is easy to grab with your hand or tips of fingers if you are working in the kitchen and most of your hand is dirty. The holes are nice to so that it doesn’t get too gross and wet in there but the filter keeps the fruit flies out to prevent breeding. Or hey if your a genetics lab it can keep the fruit flies in for breeding to collect later.

I purchased this to replace a plastic container. This is a nice product for a fair price. In my city we have to compost. This looks far better than our previous plastic compost container. My only complaint is the lid fits too tightly. If i could pull off the lid easier with one hand it would be perfect.

Didn’t think this would be much of a step up from a coffee can under the counter, but i was profoundly wrong. We’ve been using this for months, and we can throw all manner of vegetable residue in the can, and leave it for weeks under the counter (a blessing considering our compost bin is well away from the house, and through a couple feet of snow this winter). No smell, no mess, easy to clean up. Wish i had purchased this years ago.

Size is appropriate for my counter. I like the black color cause it doesn’t show stains or grease from food. So far the filter seems to work however i do empty every couple of days. The price was wonderful because i’ve seen these for $50 and i received mine for less than $20. Awesome addition to my kitchen.

I love the larger size of this compost bin. I love the larger size of this compost bin. It’s lightweight and sturdy. My last compost bin was made out of a ceramic material and with one drop would crack and fall apart. It was much harder to carry around. My only wish would be a tighter lid seal. It does keep the smell out, but the lid comes off easy.

This is the handiest product for the kitchen. I had been using old coffee containers for my food waste and then i looked at several bins before settling on this vonshef. I usually fill it about twice every week, then carry it out to the compost barrel. I use the nopro recyclable bags and the bin stays clean and the charcoal filter also keeps any odors from escaping.

The vonshef countertop compost bin is absolutely wonderful and i cannot recommend it enough. It is sturdy and beautifully designed and the filter is so very strong that odors are completely eliminated. I bought this compost bin for my parents and was worried about how picky they can be. Well, after opening the box and using the bin, my parents were so delighted and satisfied. I’ll be ordering more filters and will certainly keep vonshef in mind for future needs and recommendations to friends.

Got this as a replacement for a world market bin we had for about 2 years. It finally rusted through the bottom and started to leak. Once i got this one i could easily tell it was a much better made product. Heavier, thicker metal, better hardware, better coating, etc. I have only had it a little while now but it is a great size, bigger than many others and looks nice on our counter, easy to clean. I anticipate having this one a lot longer than 2 years.

Only doing 4 stars because it’s new. I am pleased with the size, it’s generous, looks like it’ll hold approximately a weeks worth. So far (4 days) no odor or issues. The ‘cast iron’ base seems to be a cast iron paint over steel lending to some of the complaints written. But it seems very durable and will be easy to clean. Be careful when you order extra filters, the ‘bundle’ actually gives the wrong kind. Will post update later on performance.

Official filters offer top quality. These are the official filters for the vonshef compost bin. Then slide right in very easily, and do a fantastic job of controlling the smell of the bin while it is closed. It’s been about a month and a half since i replaced it, and it will probably last me another month or so before i need a new set, but that still remains to be seen.

It’s my first time with an in-house unit and it does very well. Large enough to handle our needs. Since we like to keep our planting soil in good shape this is an excellent way to go. We have a larger outdoor unit which we frequently dump the in-house into. And the vonshef meets our needs very nicely.

After using a fruit cake tin for years for my compost garbage, this is absolutely great. I thought it would be heavy but it is not. I also know that the charcoal filter works great to keep down odors (in fact, it worked too well. Without the smell i forgot to empty it. Still didn’t smell but lots and lots of mold).

Great for the counter, not composting people. Slightly larger that our ceramic countertop composter it replaced, i am already much happier with it. Cleans easier, smells less, looks better – what’s not to like?and if you’re looking for something to read while your kitchen scraps are slowly turning into excellent soil, i recommend trickster’s thunder trickster’s thunder (trickster chronicles book 1), a near-future police novel who sequel, i have it on good authority, will involve the active composting of people.

I ordered this countertop compost bin from vonshef because my stepson is interested in composting and i couldn’t stand having just a baggie to hold the scraps. It looks nice on the countertop and is big enough to hold a weeks worth of compost material for our family (family of 9) so i’m very pleased with it. Five stars for a nice looking solutioni love to save money and get great deals on amazon and i depend heavily on reviews when choosing a product, so i hope my review is helpful to someone else :).

It holds a lot,the carbon filters didn’t work too great but i did let it still long time.

Great compost bucket with no smells. This little compost tin is just tremendous. It’s a little larger than i’m use to but i️ can fill it up in a couple of days with no smell escaping. I️ compost almost everything and this guy can handle it.

Nature’s Head Dry Composting Toilet : who needs a septic in the country

It’s light weight, quick and easy to use, and composts well in my art studio. I didn’t want to go inside the house to use the facilities when i covered in my art process. This is a perfect alternative out in my studio.

Installed it this week at our farm. Installed it this week at our farm. Eliminated the need for a septic system or a ‘homey wagon’ for our small ‘week-ender’ travel trailer.

Nature’s Head Dry Composting Toilet with Standard Crank Handle

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Hand crank agitator in base for fast composting
  • User friendly
  • Easy installation
  • Features a molded design
  • Includes 5′ vent hose, bottle cap, 12v power plug

While all the previous reviews are covering everything i would like to give some additional info. If you live in a rural, really cold part of the country without a septic system your ‘relief’ choices are pretty much limited. It’s either an outhouse or a honey bucket and both of them are more or less unpleasant. The readers who have to use them know what i mean. Now with colder temps there is not much of composting/dehydrating going on and therefore the nature’s head ‘compost bin’ has to be emptied sooner. For two full time users likely within a week at temps between minus 20f and plus 20f. However, it will look and smell like potting soil and can just be dumped into the fire barrel with the other burnable garbage. It won’t smell during burning either. I don’t compost so i can’t comment on the duration for that option.

This product had so many good reviews that i was really looking forward to having it as a spare toilet ( for emergency use) for road trips. When it arrived, i noticed the top of it is really heavy and is not detachable. I tried to turn it over to see what it would be like to empty it and it was really awkward to control the heavy swinging lid/seat combo. It would be so much harder to handle when loaded. Emptying it would be definitely a man’s job. The hinges on mine were defective( it looked as though someone had tried to remove the lid/seat combo). Otherwise the plastic structure was sturdy. My fan did not have any plug in, just wires. I would need my husband(who has taken a basic electrical course, to install it. I did not use so i cannot describe anything else about it. It seems expensive for what you get. I returned it and had to pay a lot of money for sending it back.

Excellent product, highly recommended. I installed this product in a sailboat to replace a holding tank system that had a chronic odor problem. I could not be more happy with the purchase. Recently i had two back to back multiple day sails with 7 men aboard each time. That’s a lot of ‘material’ to process in a short period of time. On heavy use mornings there would be some odor that would linger but it would mostly disapate in a few hours. Two days later i opened the head up to check out the composting process and even when i got my nose up close and personal, all i could smell was the earthy odor of a forest floor. There was no trace of the original ‘deposits’ other than a few traces of composting toilet paper. What i find remarkable is the speed of the composting process.

Nature’s Head Dry Composting Toilet with Standard Crank Handle : So far so good-no odor, easy to use.

Well made and although i haven’t had a chance to use it very much seems to be working properly. It is far superior to the fiberglass versions i have purchased in the past. Only complaint was that i had ordered it with the spider handle and it was shipped with the standard one.

No smell as of yet, so it is working as advertised, if you follow the directions.

Who needs a septic in the country. I was gonna put in a septic system then found out what it would cost,i will be getting a second one for our cabin this year,way better than spending 10 grand,plus we don`t have running water anyway,that would be another 5 grand for a well.

I have bought 2 for my 2 guest spots. They are amazing and good for the environmenti highly recommend these toilets. They are pricey but they will pay for themselves.

Fan is getting juice but refuses to spin. Haven’t located where to contact seller so trying the review to reach them. After replacement of fan, will update this reviewupdate:nature’s head sent me two replacement fans right after the previous review. I have a couple full reviews on youtube under ‘texas tramper’ for anyone that wants the real nitty gritty of this toilet. But, suffice it to say, after using it for a couple months, my parents (72 & 73) have now decided to purchase a nature’s head for their 5th wheel.

We’ve had this in our rental cabin for over 5 years and never a problem.

Highly recommended by my whole family. My family recently decided to live ‘off grid’ and this dry composting toilet by nature’s head has been great.Cannot say enough to promote this. We use it full time and it works amazingly.

By the time the run was over i hated the thing. I lived with a sunmar ne for nearly two decades. By the time the run was over i hated the thing. This one is great as i live alone. Cleaning is easy enough (ten days to two weeks for one person using it constantly) and the urine collection system needs only a hand grip at the bottom of the bottle to aid in draining it – which happens every other day. Cleaning is a matter of a simple removal of the seat unit and the urine bottle (part of the design, it’s easy) and placing a garbage bag over the top, inverting the box into the bag and shaking slightly. Turning it right side up, replacing the box, seat unit and bottle, adding more sphagnum or coir. The smell is slightly musty like soil. Urine doesn’t smell if there is white vinegar added to the bottle after rinsing.

I really like it, haven’t hat it long but it works. I really like it, haven’t hat it long but it works as advertised and best of all there is no odor.

We replaced our rv toilet with the nature’s head composting toilet. By doing this, we eliminated the need for using our black-water holding tanks. With a family of 2 adults and 6 children, we need to change the urine probably daily, and the solid matter every week.

Great toilet and great service. I purchased this toilet 5 years ago (1/22/2012), it has worked great in our cabin in the mountains since day one. A quick and easy install, easy to operate and maintain. We run the exhaust fan 24/7 off a set of 12 volt batteries, that also powers our 12 volt water pump, there is a 50 watt solar panel attached to keep the batteries charged. After almost 5 years of use, the fan stopped working, not expecting much i contacted the seller about getting a part number for another fan, jim requested my address to send me a new fan. Expecting that it might take awhile or he would just drop a fan in an envelope i was surprised when i came home 3 days later and found a priority box in the mail box with 2 new fans in it. The customer service before the sale, he answered every question we had, and the customer service after all this time has been excellent. Visitors to our cabin always ask about the toilet and we always tell them where to get it.

This product had so many good reviews that i was really looking forward to having it as a spare toilet ( for emergency use) for road trips. When it arrived, i noticed the top of it is really heavy and is not detachable. I tried to turn it over to see what it would be like to empty it and it was really awkward to control the heavy swinging lid/seat combo. It would be so much harder to handle when loaded. Emptying it would be definitely a man’s job. The hinges on mine were defective( it looked as though someone had tried to remove the lid/seat combo). Otherwise the plastic structure was sturdy. My fan did not have any plug in, just wires. I would need my husband(who has taken a basic electrical course, to install it. I did not use so i cannot describe anything else about it. It seems expensive for what you get. I returned it and had to pay a lot of money for sending it back.

We decided on this nature’s head unit and are very happy with our purchase. We purchased this toilet for use camping and living in the country without power or water for a period of time during a recent move. After doing extensive compost toilet research, we decided on this nature’s head unit and are very happy with our purchase. The toilet is well thought out, is heavy duty and does not feel like it will tip over easily once secured correctly in its place of use. The best thing about this toilet is the fact that the smell is minimal if the liquid waste is truly kept separate from the solid waste. The liquid waste container comes out of the unit easily for disposal and is heavy duty and easy to wash out. Our first emptying experience for the solid waste was stinky, but we were able to clean out the waste easily – we buried our waste in a deep hole we dug on our property outdoors – and set the unit back up with fresh peat moss, ready to use again promptly. Yes, you probably can simply empty the solid waste into a plastic garbage bag and dispose of it in your regular trash but we preferred to dispose of the waste as true compost, which will not harm the soil if disposed of properly. It is not advisable, however, to dispose of the solid waste in any area where food for human consumption is being raised, such as a vegetable garden, etc. The solid waste consistency is best maintained by using the right proportion of peat moss to the amount of liquid in the waste.

This is the second toilet ive purchased the first on my bruce roberts 38ft offshore, the second on a 30ft pearson p30. I sold the pearson and the person i sold it to also loves it no more pump out.

While all the previous reviews are covering everything i would like to give some additional info. If you live in a rural, really cold part of the country without a septic system your ‘relief’ choices are pretty much limited. It’s either an outhouse or a honey bucket and both of them are more or less unpleasant. The readers who have to use them know what i mean. Now with colder temps there is not much of composting/dehydrating going on and therefore the nature’s head ‘compost bin’ has to be emptied sooner. For two full time users likely within a week at temps between minus 20f and plus 20f. However, it will look and smell like potting soil and can just be dumped into the fire barrel with the other burnable garbage. It won’t smell during burning either. I don’t compost so i can’t comment on the duration for that option.

Oversized 1 – Great Compost Bin

Larger than i expected but fits where i wanted to use it. Came very promptly without any damage. Waiting for fruit fly season to see if there are issues with flies but, so far, it’s great. Love being able to remove the inner bucket to empty and wash.

Great size, quality and easy to clean. Love that you can pick bucket out to remove.

I like that there is an inner bucket that is easy to handle and empty. I wish the lid fit more securely. I worry that since it is so loose it will let the odor out.

The compost bin is excellent, not too big not too small. The compost bin is excellent, not too big not too small. The inner plastic bucket quite sturdy and washable. I am very happy with the purchase.

Super clean design, love how it looks and that its extra large to hold more compost.

I’m only giving 4 out of 5 because i haven’t had it very long. I’m anticipating a fruit fly problem when the weather gets warmer. I don’t see the possibility of it rusting shut like the last two compost pails i bought, so i’m feeling pretty happy right now. Love the slightly larger size.

I really like this compost bin. I really like this compost bin. I love the way you can fit a compostable bag in the inner bin and tuck it almost out of sight. I love the size, it is much easier to get food into without getting it all over the bin than my old (broken) ceramic one and it needs emptying less often.

Make sure you buy the compostable bags that go with it. We are really enjoying this.

Clean, not fancy, but will work perfectly for. Clean, not fancy, but will work perfectly for us to use on a day to day basis, and not have to leave scraps in a bowl and run out to the compost bin.

Large enough that i don’t have to empty it twice a day, or even every day. Larger than most kitchen bins, and looks good, too. I do wish the lid fit tighter, but haven’t had any problems, yet. Still cold weather, so i am withholding judgement on the filters ability to reduce smell / keep fruit flies at bay until warmer weather comes around.

Great design and functionality. This compost bucket is the best i have ever had. I recently bought a white ceramic bucket that i also like but it is small and heavy to transport to my composter. I love the inner plastic insert that i can lift out and take to my composter. And then i can put it in the dishwasher. The white exterior is very attractive and seems like it will hold up for years. It is a great size and will hold a a lot before it has to emptied.

Sturdy, great quality, so useful. It’s a bit larger than i thought it would. All the better to encourage me.

Kitchen Maestro Counter Top Stainless Steel Compost Bin : Included “compost” bags are plastic, not compostable

Almost like a work of art but it’s for the garbage you save to compost. . Gorgeous and who would ever think it held garbage for the composter. Almost makes composting sophisticated. And it even came with several charcoal filters to put in the top so the rotting stuff doesn’t smell. And has little compostable bags that fit in it and hold the items you put in it and even rides in the composter with the rotting household items and is compost too.

Nice clean look holds lots of scraps. Have detected no odors at this point. I like that there are no seams in the bucketaddendum: after using the pail for a while i purchased biodegradable bags so i could throw the entire contents into the compost pile. With the new bags the contents tend to sweat a little and moisture collects on the surface of the lid inside the bucket. The filter eliminates all odor even when i don’t empty the bucket of up to 4 days. However the moisture on the inside of the lid caused the steel to get a little rust spots on it. It is stainless steel however all stainless steel is not rust proof so this is not a rust proof stainless steel. So far i have been able to wipe the rust off with a paper towel or a mr.

Not compost bags – recyclable. The item itself is very cute and seems very durable. However, the bags that come with it are not compost – or compostable – bags. They are plastic recyclable, which is a very different thing. Who wants to have to wash out plastic bags just to recycle them?.

If you have lots of compost, this works well. Larger than i expected so it takes up some counter space. Plastic baggie inserts are ok, but sooner or later they need to be disposed of. Filter still effective after 5 months. So far, the finish is still like new, no chips, rust, stains. Oh, the handle “squeaks”, so put a little wax on the pins.

  • Chemical Free with Airtight Lid, Odor Absorbing Filter Keeps Odors Contained. Extra Replacement Filter Set Included.

  • BONUS 50 Free Compost Bags Included

So convenient to have a small, but large enough, container for our waste. No flies or gnats, no smell, cleans well and i use larger plastic bags than it comes with, and it will hold a ton of stuff.

Nice enough to sit by my sink. I havent had any problems with smells or flies. And i feel great that i am able to compost all that food instead of just throwing it away. Only criticism is that i was unable to find any information on where to buy more of the bio-degradable bags. I eventually ordered 6-litre bags for norpro and love them. They are a bit bigger than the ones sent with the bin and make it really easy to fill and tie.

Very sturdy and looks beautiful on the counter. The filters do a great job at containing the smell. We dump about once a week and never have a smell in out kitchen. Would definitely recommend buying biodegradable bags in addition as the ones that come with it do not break down in the compost.

I bought the pastel green compost bin that fits nicely under my sink and i love it. I bought the pastel green compost bin that fits nicely under my sink and i love it. The extra carbon filters are a great bonus to buying this kitchen compost kit. I was not happy to discover the included bags are plastic, therefore they are not biodegradable compost bags. I went and bought some real compost biodegradable bags on ebay for a great deal. 3″ or slightly larger compost bags work best with this bin.

Would be better if the bags were compostable too. Would be better if the bags were compostable too, as my husband was a bit miffed when he found out they weren’t. The bucket is very cool and well made.

Nice product, but “bonus pack” of compost bags are not biodegradable. . We just received this today. I ordered it in white for our 5-person office. The design aesthetic and quality are as advertised. I like how it looks in our space. The only disappointment was that the “bonus pack” of compost bags was not as hoped. I had thought these would be biodegradable and therefore make taking out the compost easy. In fact, the bags are recyclable, so you are left with the dirty task of emptying them, rinsing them, and bundling them for recycle. That is not very convenient. I will have to order biodegradable bags online separately.

Almost like a work of art but it’s for the garbage you save to compost. . Gorgeous and who would ever think it held garbage for the composter. Almost makes composting sophisticated. And it even came with several charcoal filters to put in the top so the rotting stuff doesn’t smell. And has little compostable bags that fit in it and hold the items you put in it and even rides in the composter with the rotting household items and is compost too.

Odor free compost and nice looking. I make raw dog and cat food and after rinsing food dishes in the sink, i have to remove the waste from the sink strainer so the food doesn’t go into our septic system. I was scraping the waste into a plastic bag on the counter previously, but oh my gosh the stench was horrible.There is never a large amount of waste, so i didn’t want to waste plastic bags by throwing it in the trash every day–but it still smelled really bad. I have been using the compost bin for awhile now and it’s wonderful. With the included bags and filters, there is no smell whatsoever. I think this compost bin is mainly for vegetable matter for the compost pile–not raw meat–so i was thinking it might not work for my needs. I am really happy that this works. And it looks nice on the counter, too.

Included “compost” bags are plastic, not compostable. The selling feature of this item and the reason i went with it over all the other options was the 50 compost bags included with the item. Guess i fell for the trick because i assumed they were compostable bags and not plastic “compost” bags. Why would anyone who is removing food scrapes from the landfill put their scraps in a plastic bag?.

Wasn’t sure i would like having this on my counter, but since i eat lots of fruit and veggies it is awesome. I just empty the bag outside in my compost pile when it is about 1/2 full or so and use the bag several times. Comes with a roll of 50 bags to line the inside. When i use those up i plan to try using the bags i get my produce in from the grocery store to see if they work.

It’s a nice looking, well made can, but the enclosed “bonus” plastic bags are not biodegradable as described in the promotional description on amazon. They are labeled “recyclable”, as all plastic bags are. In this case, you have to take the filthy smelly bags out of the can and carefully empty the contents into an outdoor composting container, then rinsing out the bags to recycle somewhere, or else throw everything into the trash defeating the purpose of a recycling can. The can is too small to turn your bio material into compost on the kitchen counter. Also, there are no instructions at all, not one word on the box or in a pamphlet about how to use the can or insert the filters. They don’t fit flush in the lid. I did the best i could, just guessing. However, i discovered fruit flies were able to get into the container, even though i tried to put in the filters in such a way as to block the holes on the lid. The round filter should fit snugly into the top but doesn’t, the the square one in a round can??.

Works good, filters don’t last long, bags not biodegradable. I like the plastic bags, other than they are not really biodegradable, so i do end up dumping them instead of throwing them in the compost bin. The filters work ok, but do not last long.

Absolutely love itperfect combination of being beautiful and utilitarianit’s heavy and solid enough that my kitties can’t push it over. The lid sits perfect and can be removed with one hand – which is pretty important when you are already holding a messy bits in your other hand.

Excellent and well made product. Excellent and well made product. It has been on my counter top for 4 days, and i cannot smell any of its connects. . I would have rated it 5 stars, however the color is a bit pale, a slightly milky red. It dose not match ‘kitchenaid red’.

This is just as cute as it looks, so if you are debating on this one, just go ahead and get it. I recently purchased a garden tower 2 which has a built in compost in the middle. I wanted to start using the tube but i didn’t want to, either, constantly have to run outside to dump scraps, or have compost stinking up the house. I am completely shocked that there is no zero smell. I put vegetable scraps, egg shells and coffee grounds. I know the picture looks gross, but it’s full and it doesn’t stink. My kitchen maestro is just too cute.

Super cute and does what it says, just needs better bags. I will start off by saying that this product is exactly what it says it is. It’s perfect and it does keep the smells at bay. It’s fantastic for sitting on the counter and holds everything you would need it to hold for a family of 3 that eats tons of fruits and veggies, and has lots of coffee or egg shells to add each week. I will also say that i would have given it 5 stars if the bonus bags were actually compostable instead of just recyclable. I knew what i was buying, yes, but that shouldn’t change the fact that the people who put this package together need to know that the recyclable (and it even says reusable as if i would reuse a bag that has had rotting material in it for a week or maybe more that i just dumped into my compost barrel outside) bags just aren’t going to cut it. They need to be compostable bags so that i can just throw the bag and the contents into my barrel and move on. Instead i then have to figure out what i am going to do with the bag once i’ve emptied it out. I’m certainly not bringing it back in the house to put in the recycle bin or put it in the garage for an animal to find. So, i’m actually using these bags as trash bags for the bathroom cans until they run out.

Included bags are worthless. I love this pail and everything about it, however it only received 4 stars because the included ‘freebie’ bags are not like long enough to protect the inside of the pail once food scraps are added. Also hilariously, the word recyclable is misspelled on the wrapper of the bags. I cannot comment on whether the included bags are even compostable, as there hasn’t been enough time in the compost pile to make that determination.

Kitchen Compost Bin : this reminded me of the old garbage cans, and I’m a true container person

I love this bin; it’s the perfect size for a day’s worth of kitchen scraps, i never smell anything through the lid, it’s easy to clean, and the lid is easy to lift one-handed. It’s unobtrusive, i can leave it anywhere in the kitchen. The knobs holding the handle tend to fall off, but they’re easily screwed back on. I just try to remember to tighten them every now and then.

The filter was scrunched in and unusable.

Looks beautiful sitting on the kitchen counter. I purchase this to replace a broken ceramic one that i had for several years. I hope to have this for many years to come.

Chef’n EcoCrock Counter Compost Bin – Nice Compost bin

Overall a nice bin, very attractive, solid and easy to use, holds odors well. I have always disliked reviews that complain about the size – it is clearly listed, but is it more difficult to get a good feel for this from the dimensions. The inner liner is (as it has to be to fit) a bit smaller then the outer container. At the bottom is round, about 4. The top is oval about 7′ x 5′. Even for one person it is just a little too small.

We use this just about every day, the plastic pale with handle inside is so handy, beats lugging the whole thing out to the yard. It’s easy to clean up unless you wait too long to empty it (done that). We have thrown it in the dishwasher for a good cleaning. The filter works great to keep down the odor even when we do get lazy.

This is a nice stylish container to put on your counter top to temporary store compostable scraps. The lid is easy to take on and off and it provides a good seal to keep fruit flies away. The charcoal liner is a nice addition to remove any odors that might be created if you don’t empty the container frequently :)the outer portion of the container is ceramic and the inner portion is plastic. I like that the pieces can be washed in the dishwasher if needed. The capacity of the container isn’t huge but it is a good size for our needs – i usually need to empty it every three or four days. Going any longer would probably be a bad idea anyway. Here are the specifications for the Chef’n EcoCrock Counter Compost Bin:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • This contemporary countertop compost bin allows you collect up to 3-quarts of food scraps right in your kitchen. It’s a creative composting solution for urban use or anywhere an outdoor composting bin is not an option.
  • The EcoCrock is a 3.3-liter (.75-gallon) modern ceramic countertop composter that features a vented lid with a charcoal filter that absorbs odors, keeping your kitchen smelling fresh.
  • A drafted bucket shape allows food scraps to slide out without a mess or hassle. If preferable, a plastic bag can be placed inside the bucket as a liner.
  • Clean up takes just few seconds, simply rinse bucket with warm water, and dry. 2 disposable natural charcoal filters ship with this green friendly bin.
  • Choose smart, easy-to-use kitchen utensils that are built on tasteful design, new technologies, and the trusted reputation of Chef’n.

This is the third countertop compost bin i have owned, and i wish that i had bought this the first time around. I have used a ceramic one that was difficult to empty, and eventually cracked and i had an aluminum one which eventually leaked. I love the design of my ecocrock, and having a removable inner bin to take out to my garden compost is so convenient; simply tip it in, rinse it out and return it to its ceramic shell. So much easier to clean than either of my previous bins. I have been using this for around a month now, and i have not needed to change the filter yet. My husband and i eat a lot of fruit and veg, so i’m emptying this out every 2 to 3 days, although since clean up is so easy, it really is not a big deal.

Looks very nice on the counter and has some good features. You can remove the lid easily by using the leaf as a handle. There was no smell coming out of this after 8 weeks of use. I asked if i could use biodegradable bags inside and based on replies i ordered this can. But, they hang out over the edge and look messy. I used a large rubber bag to hold down the edge of the bag, but it is really too tight of a fit. After 8 weeks there were maggots in the charcoal filter, probably because we overfilled the container. Glad we had a second filter and we will be careful not to let the food touch this one.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Cute Compost Counter Storage, Or For Storing Other Things
  • Stylish and functional
  • Nice Compost bin

This compost bin works great for me. I have had it for about 3wks. It looks great on my counter, the outside ceramic wipes clean easily and the pale is also easily dumped and cleaned. Maybe you if you left the stuff sit too long but i fill it up too soon for that to happen. What i dont like is having to lift the lid every time i need to put stuff in it. I will just have to get use to that. Also i wish it was a little bigger to hold more, but it holds a fair amount. Be aware its made in china, major bummer. I dont like buying products that are made in china. Desinger is a sell out from washington. I would definately recommend this compost bin for most anyone looking. Just wish it was made in the us.

It looks nice and cleans up well (as opposed to some of the stainless steel versions we’ve tried), but the lid just sits on the top of the bucket, so if you’re close to full, the lid doesn’t fit snugly and bugs can get in. We had the good ideas pail-boo bamboo compost pail before, and if i had it to do over again, i’d have gotten that one again. (it lasted three years before cracking, and had a much better seal on the lid.

It looks nice and cleans up well (as opposed to some of the stainless steel versions we’ve tried), but the lid just sits on the top of the bucket, so if you’re close to full, the lid doesn’t fit snugly and bugs can get in. We had the good ideas pail-boo bamboo compost pail before, and if i had it to do over again, i’d have gotten that one again. (it lasted three years before cracking, and had a much better seal on the lid.

I was looking for something modern and with clean lines. The bucket has a nice handle, and the kids are able to help out without getting too messy. I did not receive two filters in the package though – only one. It’s not really needed, and doesn’t really keep out strong odors (non of them do – you just have to empty every few days).

Finally a contemporary counter compost bin. I love this counter compost bin. It looks really cute on the counter. It’s well designed so that the green plastic oval liner pail slips nicely and easily into the white ceramic oval crock, both lidded or unlidded. The green leaf handle is easy to grab and looks great. The filter in the lid is an additional nice feature. The size is perfect and easy to carry outside. I looked for a contemporary styled compost pail for quite awhile before finally finding this one, which is better looking than the other one or two i found. Not everyone has a traditional or country styled kitchen.

I am so happy to have found a unique and modern compost bin. I really did not want something that looked like a trash can sitting on my counter. This container is beautifully designed. As for functionality, the removable interior is great and easy to clean. I have yet to smell anything coming from the bin, even having left food in it for days. I was also concerned about fruit flies, but i have yet to have any issues. Very happy with this purchase.

Doing the right thing, one scrap at a time. I’m a teacher and talk a lot with my students about doing the right thing. I was feeling pretty guilty about throwing egg shells, coffee grounds, and table scraps out in the general garbage. So, i’ve had my little compost bin now for a week and i’m loving it. The real acid test came when we had a string of really hot days. With the charcoal filter neatly tucked inside the lid, you’d never know that this little, non-intrusive device harbored such smelly stuff. It is slightly smaller than a gallon jug of milk, so it doesn’t take up a lot of counter space. I may only be throwing out a gallons-worth of scraps a week, but it’s the right thing to do no matter how small. I intend to buy more as gifts so that friends and family can do the same. Collectively, we’ll be doing our part one scrap at a time.

I got this to replace a ceramic compost bin that over the years had gotten bumped and banged around enough that i had broken both the lid and the handle off. I looked at the steal options and they seemed to leak or rust. I liked this one because it is white ceramic like the one i was replacing, and looks nice on the counter in the kitchen. A friend even commented on my ‘cute’ new compost bin. Inside is a green plastic bucket with handle that lifts out and is easy to dump into the compost outside. I like that the ceramic part stays safely inside thus hopefully extending it’s life. The lid is plastic so less likely to break when it gets dropped. I also like that the sides slope outward, so the compost slides out easily. On my last counter compost bin the sides sloped inward and stuff always stuck in the bottom.

Perfect on the counter compost collector. This looks good and does a great job catching stuff for us to take to the compost bin. Its the best of both worlds because is has a very nice crock exterior and a smooth plastic bucket interior. It is so handy to be able to grab the bucket handle & lift it right out to take stuff to the compost bin. The lid fits well, not super tight, but well enough to keep the fruit flies out. The charcoal filter in the vented top keeps any odors away. I got the extra filters with it because i knew, if it was worth keeping, i would be needing them especially through the summer. I got this especially for my daughter who is vegan and always has something that needs to go to the compost bin. I got tired of seeing the stuff on the counter in whatever container she had at hand. This little crock has been perfect for her.

Good for the kitchen work surface but possibly a little small. This is an excellent product for your kitchen work surface. The ceramic outside looks much nicer than plastic, but having the plastic inner is great, it’s easy to take out to empty and clean. This was what i was looking for, but i think that this product does have a couple of areas that could be improved on. Size: it is a little small – we have to empty it 2-3 times a week minimumthe lid: doesn’t sit as snugly as i would expect. It keeps all the odours in but it always looks like it s not on quite rightthese are minor points that, in my opinion, do not detract from the product or still usefulness.

This compost bin works great for me. I have had it for about 3wks. It looks great on my counter, the outside ceramic wipes clean easily and the pale is also easily dumped and cleaned. Maybe you if you left the stuff sit too long but i fill it up too soon for that to happen. What i dont like is having to lift the lid every time i need to put stuff in it. I will just have to get use to that. Also i wish it was a little bigger to hold more, but it holds a fair amount. Be aware its made in china, major bummer. I dont like buying products that are made in china. Desinger is a sell out from washington. I would definately recommend this compost bin for most anyone looking. Just wish it was made in the us.

This is the third countertop compost bin i have owned, and i wish that i had bought this the first time around. I have used a ceramic one that was difficult to empty, and eventually cracked and i had an aluminum one which eventually leaked. I love the design of my ecocrock, and having a removable inner bin to take out to my garden compost is so convenient; simply tip it in, rinse it out and return it to its ceramic shell. So much easier to clean than either of my previous bins. I have been using this for around a month now, and i have not needed to change the filter yet. My husband and i eat a lot of fruit and veg, so i’m emptying this out every 2 to 3 days, although since clean up is so easy, it really is not a big deal.

This little crock has been perfect for her.

We looked at a few different ones, but chose this one because the plastic bin inside comes out to take the junk to the compost barrel outside. It is also very heavy ceramic and that helps from easily knocking it over on the counter like our old plastic one. The filter seems to do its job too. I haven’t smelled any nastiness coming out yet. I can’t think of anything that is negative. Maybe if it was a little bigger, but theni would probably leave stuff in it too long rather than taking it out in a timely manner.

Copper-Plated Stainless Steel Kitchen Compost Bin : I LOVE this counter compost

This is the 3rd countertop compost bin i’ve tried, and the only one i will ever have again. Sometimes i fill it up in a few days, sometimes i’ll gradually fill it over the course of a couple of weeks, and in either situation there are no smells, no gnats, no leaking, and it’s pretty to boot.

What a clever and well made container. What a clever and well made container. I was curious how this would function but this copper bucket with carbon filter really is more attractive than our old compost pot and it eliminates the fruit flies and messy look of open containers.

It’s beautiful, doesn’t smell, easy to clean.

This is a beautiful piece on the counter and i look forward to. This is a beautiful piece on the counter and i look forward to using it. The lid is not a snug fit so i hope the smell remains concealed like i read on some of the reviews. Odor was not a problem many of the posts read. Aside from that, the fact that the lid is not tight means it will be easy to open so as long as smell is not a problem then i approve.

  • Beautiful and great

Really nice looking and works well too. Bought this for my mother in law and she absolutely loves it. The filter really helps reduce the odor and it looks adorable sitting on her kitchen counter. Doesn’t look cheap and flimsy, at all, which was my biggest concern. Very happy with this product.

I bought this countertop compost container because i got tired of tossing all my coffee grounds and veggie trimmings into a mixing bowl. This container is the perfect size and the copper looks chic and modern. I’m so glad i didn’t buy the first one i saw at target.

Great seller and a great product. My order arrived well within the time specified. The item was well wrapped and packaged. I am very pleased with this seller. This compost bin is absolutely fantastic. I love how it blends in with the kitchen. There are absolutely no odors.

I love this counter compost. I love this counter compost. We recently made a compost in the backyard and i didn’t want to keep walking back and forth from the kitchen to the side yard. I was looking online and found this one. My house has copper accents everywhere and this one was perfect. Its the perfect size and no smell.

My previous ceramic compost container broke, and this one, as well as being very attractive, is unbreakable.

Works great, no stink when it’s closed, handy because i don’t have to run out to the composter in the garden every time i have some egg shells or carrot tops or something from cooking. I dump my coffee grounds in it too. No flies, fungus gnats or even fruit flys.Also, it holds a good amount and i don’t have to run out to empty it often. And, it looks great in my kitchen.

Full Circle Scrap Happy Scrap Collector and Freezer Compost Bin : Small Trash Bin by Your Stove :)

Instead of throwing this in the freezer when i have added to it, i hang it on the inside threshold of my chicken coop. My chickens love the plate scrapings and veggie peels. And yes, i throw it in the dishwasher when the girls have emptied it. I will be purchasing a second one in the near future so one can be in the kitchen while the other one is in the coop. When it comes in from the coop, i just rinse it out and throw it in the dishwasher. So much easier to use/clean than the chicken feeders on the market.

If you want to recycle your organic. If you want to recycle your organic waste such as fruit peels, egg shells and the like, throw them in this and freeze it.Even when i really packed it down and filed it to the max, frozen solid it popped right out with a tap on the button and washes off quite easily.

But it was easy to put back in place. This fits inside my trash can and i use it to collect food scraps for my compost pile. Unweary house guests have accidentally pushed it down (thinking it was just trash sticking up out of the bin), but it was easy to put back in place. It is pretty durable and fits my needs well. It was small than i expected, but typically it is not full until the trash bag is full, so that is not really an issue.

We have ordered this item before. We use it in the bedrooms to put the remote controls in for easy locating. We have one headboard that is metal and we can hang it on there. The other bedroom has a wood frame around the mattress/boxspring and we hang it on that. Can also be used when a child is sick or even to throw soiled tissues in. One customer questioned the color: it is medium gray.

Full Circle Scrap Happy Scrap Collector and Freezer Compost Bin, Green

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Wire rim attaches to drawer to easily scoop scraps off your counter or cutting board
  • Easy to empty, simply invert and press on bottom
  • Dishwasher and freezer safe

I do not have a garbage disposal, so putting this on the edge of the sink when washing dishes is super helpful. Or when chopping veggies i can free up more real estate on the cutting board as i go. I like the soft silicone because it can easy wiggle it’s way into my freezer and there is no issue with having a hard time getting the frozen goods/ ice block out when i go to the compost.

I was looking for a tiny wastebasket to use on my kitchen island (garbage can is inconveniently located too far away) when i stumbled on this. I line it with a plastic bag and hook it on the cabinet while i am making breakfasts and lunches and then it tucks right away when i am done. It has been super useful and i use it everyday.

I bought this because i used one at a friend’s house. It’s extremely handy to have for several reasons. While it doesn’t fit over the saddle between my two sinks (it might on another sink), it does fit snugly over a drawer, so you can position it where you are cutting or peeling or chopping and scrape the leavings right into it. I like that it can go in the freezer too, so that potentially smelly scraps can be placed in the freezer until it’s convenient to take it out to the compost bin or trash. It’s made of a supple material and is easy to clean.

Small trash bin by your stove :). I use mine more as a small trash collector. I have mine next to the stove for eggshells and anything else i may want to toss quickly. Also, i line it with a plastic produce bag so that it doesn’t get grimy and dirty. Not only this, but using this as a small trash can, i end up using my large kitchen trash bag as a bin for my smaller produce-bag-wrapped trash bags (and/or trash items that don’t have a smell). This means my large trash can usually doesn’t smell bad, since it’s only ever full of smaller wrapped trash bags. Maybe it seems a little strange, but for someone who usually only cooks for one, i don’t like my large trashcan to be partially full and already smell like it needs to be taken out.

I looked and looked for the right scrap bin. I love that it doesn’t take up precious counter space. You can freeze it and it comes out easily. This is great when the gnats are bad. No matter how hard you try those little bugs will find their way into all scrap bins. The only thing that is just a bit of a negative is the size, it is a tad small, but if it were deeper or much bigger it would get in the way of cabinets and you most likely. There are some days i just have to walk to the compost bin more than once when i am doing a lot of cooking, but if you use all of your vegetable scraps, you won’t have much to throw out anyways. I am so glad i chose this one.
