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.

She was using a plastic bucket. Very attractive with the copper finish. Bought based on premise that the ceramic ones were much heavier. Now her countertop looks beautiful once again and no more pesky fruit flies.

This is an awesome and practical way to place my fresh compost items. This is an awesome and practical way to place my fresh compost items in house, until able to place in compost pile outside. No odor and very pretty in kitchen.

Pricey for a refuse bin, but it’s so cute. I felt a little extravagant paying an extra $10 for copper finish on a bin for potato peels. But it looks so pretty on the counter. Lightweight, strong, easy to wash. We don’t bother with the charcoal filters; we just empty the thing instead.

Pieces in there) and the lid comes off very easy which is handy when busy prepping or if you. There is absolutely no smell (even with onion peels and pieces in there) and the lid comes off very easy which is handy when busy prepping or if you have hand problems like me. The only issue i have is that mine came with some rub marks on it so the finish is not that great, however, that was not enough to make me go through the trouble of returning. Because of that i do not think i would buy again.

How crazy can you be about something that holds rotting food?. I like it, very attractive and does the trick. If only it came with someone to take this out to our green waste bin in the dark.

Norpro 1 Gallon Ceramic Compost Keeper : If you dump your compost keeper every day or two, this is a nice product.

The perfect complement to my outdoor composter. I bought this ceramic compost keeper, because i was not willing to pay for the stainless steel version. The only disadvantage i can see about this one is the possibility of chipping it; however, it’s just a matter of handling it with care. I initially selected red, because i wanted to buy it directly from amazon. At that point they weren’t selling the white one that i could find. It turns out i love the red one; it adds a little bright spot to my kitchen that is probably good feng shui. I am finally using the outdoor compost bin that i paid quite a bit of $$ for. I could not get in the habit of using the outdoor bin without something to ‘catch the scraps’ in the kitchen. This is the perfect motivator. I got the book, let it rot, to help me learn how to do things ‘properly’.

Attractive but not funtiona. Compost looks good on my black counter top. Wish it was larger as we eat a lot of vegetables and fill it every day. The handle is not functional. The hooks always slip off and are useless. We do not have room under the sink for a larger container. Looking for a better compost keeper.

  • Stylish 1 Gallon Ceramic Compost Keeper in White
  • Stores vegetable peelings, egg shells, coffee grinds and more until ready for transfer to outdoor composter
  • Includes odor preventing filter in the lid that will last up to 6 months
  • Use replacement filters #93F.
  • Easily clean with warm soapy water

I purchased this and another compost keeper. If you aren’t planning on carrying out the container to your composter and/or use a liner then this will work just fine. However, sometimes, the bio bags start composting by the end of the day or leak and you need to take the container out and this just isn’t one for that. So, if this is only staying on your counter and you have a routine that works with that, this is awesome. For me, i keep the addable french inspired painted steel one to use on a daily basis and this as a back up (plan on rinsing and airing them in the sun occasionally).

Clean, simple lines for useful crock. This black compost crock is beautiful in my newly remodeled kitchen. I had to put felt pads on the bottom as it left scratch marks on the new countertop (also black). Works as well as the old crock but just prettier.

Works great if you can keep the lid off. When we first decided to start vermicomposting, we knew we needed something to contain our kitchen scraps for the week so as not to disturb our worm community too much. We decided on this compost keeper because the price was right, the reviews were pretty good and the color went well with our decor. It ended up being perfect for our needs but we don’t use it exactly as it is intended. The design fit right in with my lineup of white porcelain bowls and cake stands. It looks like it was meant to be displayed with them, just as i’d hoped. The size is perfect for about a week of scraps from two people. We eat a good amount of vegetables, though. If you are more than two people and eat a ton of veggies, you’d be emptying this pretty frequently, so i might consider a larger size. Lastly, the handle makes it easy to pick up and bring out to the composter. Even though it’s just a thick wire bent around two nubs, the handle on our piece seems to be fitted well. It doesn’t look like it’ll slip off unless we really force it, and the handle itself is thick enough that we wont bend it on accident. Now for what i didn’t care for. I believe the intent of this compost keeper was to hide your kitchen scraps while still allowing them to breathe through the little holes in the lid.

Bought it for my folks – the color is perfect for their kitchen. They are just starting the compost journey – and are thrilled with how easy it is to use. They filled it up in 2 days. Super durable, easy to clean. Looks beautiful on the counter top – i have a white one on my counter.

Cute and practical little pot. . We recently purchased a house with a huge garden and a compost bin so i really wanted to compost all my vegetable scraps. This works perfectly for that. I fill it up and then take it out and dump it. For as small as it is it holds a lot of scraps. My only complaint is that it stains. I have had this for a few months and the inside is stained from coffee and tea grounds. I never let my scraps sit for more than a day and always wash it with warm soapy water and can’t seem to get rid of the stains. Oh well at least it is just the inside stained.

Lid lasted for about 16 months. I really wanted a black compost counter bin because our counters and backsplash are very dark and i didn’t want this to be a prominent part of our decor. I was warned by some friends (just after i placed the order) that the lid would break. Sure enough, a piece about 1 inch across chipped off the lid within about 6 months. I glued it back in place, and the rubber gasket helped keep it in place (it also acts as a little bit of a shock-absorber too). But now, 16 months later, the lid’s rim has chipped again and the whole lid has cracked in half so i am going to have to get another one. I’m going to get a black metal one that will come to almost $50 with shipping, but i know it won’t break after less than a year and a half.

If you dump your compost keeper every day or two, this is a nice product. . This is a good compost keeper for use on your counter top. What i like most is the attractive, bright red design. The size is also perfect for use next to the kitchen sink. Also, the cost for this keeper is $10-15 less than only slightly better products i had found. However, the vented top with ‘filter’ is not as nice as i had hoped. The filter is not very substantial and it is held in place by pressing the filter into the slightly smaller sized top. The filter has stayed in place, so far, but i keep expecting it to fall out when i open the lid. The filter does not keep the compost from smelling after more than a couple days. Also, the handle is held to the side by simply twisting around the post (see product photo).

Nice product but if i did it over again – stainless. I purchased this product after already owning the stainless version for a year. I gave the stainless to someone else because this white ceramic pedestal – looking object seemed to fit with my decor better. But what i’ve found is, (1) i am for the first time a bit nervous about breaking it or breaking glass tea pots when i shake the loose tea into this container, (2) it is certainly heavier than the stainless when lugging it (the weight is not a deal breaker), and (3) it does not seem to seal around the edge of the top anywhere as well as its stainless counterpart resulting in fruit flies getting attracted to it and actually inside on a regular basis – something that seemed to happen less with the stainless one. So carbon filter helps a lot but the leaky cover undermines the filter. Still compared to not having either choice and seeing how nicely made this object is, it gets the benefit of just over half credit in my scoring. I’d go back to stainless in a heartbeat when i feel the moment has come.

Like the other reviewer i find the handle comes off all the time, but i didn’t mind the look at all. It is virtually odorless, even when almost overflowing, and i stick the filter right in the dishwasher from time to time. I have only handwashed the crock, but it is easy to care for. I’m happy with it, and am not making hardly any waste since it arrived.

I could not get in the habit of using the outdoor bin without something to ‘catch the scraps’ in the kitchen. This is the perfect motivator. I got the book, let it rot, to help me learn how to do things ‘properly’.

Lid lasted for about 16 months. I really wanted a black compost counter bin because our counters and backsplash are very dark and i didn’t want this to be a prominent part of our decor. I was warned by some friends (just after i placed the order) that the lid would break. Sure enough, a piece about 1 inch across chipped off the lid within about 6 months. I glued it back in place, and the rubber gasket helped keep it in place (it also acts as a little bit of a shock-absorber too). But now, 16 months later, the lid’s rim has chipped again and the whole lid has cracked in half so i am going to have to get another one. I’m going to get a black metal one that will come to almost $50 with shipping, but i know it won’t break after less than a year and a half.

It looks nice other than one side of it has a lot. I just received this item yesterday (a day earlier than i expected – that was nice). It looks nice other than one side of it has a lot of tiny holes in the porcelain. I was pretty disappointed to see that. I don’t know how the item works yet as i just got it, but wanted to comment on the look of it.

Oggi Replacement Charcoal Filters : Replacement Charcoal Filers available locally for a better price

These were very affordable replacements, but they don’t seem to do as good of a job at keeping the smells of my compost bin contained as the last charcoal filters i had. Otherwise they work fine, fit my pail and everything.

This is such a great invention. I am so glad i broke down and bought this. We want to recycle but don’t want the smell in the kitchen. We can have egg shells in the bin and not smell anything between trash days. I have a sensitive nose so if it did smell i would know it.

Great refill option for low cost. Fits as a refill into the compost pail sold in past by crate and barrel for considerably less money. Perhaps quarter- to half- an inch too large in diameter for the round piece, but it fit with a slight squeeze and has no impact on effectiveness.

I just did not realize that there would be both a round one and a square one in the package. Do most people have two compost collectors in the kitchen?. I had to trim the square one to fit the round holder on my compost bucket.

Effective odor control for compost pail. I am amazed how well these filters keep odors from escaping my countertop compost pail which is usually emptied every other day. I replace the filters about annually, when they start to look a little mildewed.

Stainless Steel Kitchen Countertop Compost Bin, No more smells and fruit flies

I just started composting about 6 months ago. I was using a tupperware container in the kitchen to store my garden scraps. It worked pretty good (at first). The container was becoming pretty slimy and stinky if i didn’t dump it and clean it every couple days. I decided to up my game and order an actual kitchen compost container. This one fits the bill so far. The lid fits perfect and i love the filter in it. It also came with an extra filter. I’m very pleased with my purchase.

Perfect solution for table scraps. Okay, where was this amazing contraption 20 years ago when i was raising my family and constantly sending the kids outside with the stinky, moldy, fruit fly-infested bowl of ‘scraps’??. This thing is a lifesaver; no bad smell; a lid; no fruit flies or house flies; and compost for the garden to boot. We live in the country and have no garbage disposal so this has always been a problem. This is a perfect solution and well worth the money for a clean kitchen; no yucky leftovers to have to look at and smell. They are now out of sight and mind.

We have really liked this compost bin. It’s a great size for us (family of 4) and it keeps the smell in really well. It doesn’t have a liner but this hasn’t been a problem at all for us. It’s light weight, cleans up easily, and i thinks it’s fairly attractive. My only recommendation is a personal one. Don’t get lazy cleaning it out. Make sure you rinse it after every dump, also don’t stack your produce to the point that food will get on the filter when you put the lid on. It’s much harder to clean food off the filter (oops). We’ve had it for about 5 months now have haven’t had to replace the filter yet though.

Comments from buyers

“Great Compost Container, An excellent mechanism to collect your compose in a smell free way, Super stylish Grover digs- loving it!”

An excellent mechanism to collect your compose in a smell free way. Having recently started composting using envirocycles, offering a kitchen counter top compost bin so you’re not constantly having to run back and forth to the composter is critical. The earth cycle, while a tad on the expensive side, includes the ever critical charcoal filter, which reduces 99% of the smell. Granted this does allow you to delay taking out the compost, which can lead to some very, very ‘interesting’ smells once you go to do the run, but in the kitchen you won’t notice a thing unless you take the lid off.

No more smells and fruit flies. I recently bought this to replace the plastic cottage cheese cartons i had been using mainly because of the smell and the fruit flies that were breeding in my kitchen. Once it came, i was pleasantly surprised about the quality and how much nicer my kitchen is now with the smell gone thanks to the charcoal filter in the lid and fruit flies no longer able to breed in my compost. I like it so much i ordered two more to give to my kids so they can get rid of their smells and fruit flies too.

Great quality, sturdy and a good size. I’ve only started using it so can’t comment on the filter but we have a lot of compost so will be emptying every day or every other day for sure. Wipes out easily with a paper towel or rag and fits perfectly under the sink. If i had more counter space, i would have it sitting out as it’s very stylish. I was thinking i would have to put a bag in it, but so far haven’t needed to.

So what could thrill you about a garbage can???. Right away you know what it is, thus encouraging all those less inclined to feed the compost pile to get with the program. After a week of active use there is absolutely no detectable odor. It is just the right size for our family, meaning it can linger for several days when there are just two of us, or hold the family’s debris over a weekend. The earthcycle staff know how to have fun, making my composting a pleasure rather than a chore. I may order another just to get one of their emails.

Super stylish grover digs- loving it. My wife loves our new earth cycle stainless steel composted. Being a guy, it took me a few days to notice that the old one was gone but thanks to mike’s hilarious requests for a review i am now aware of the new addition to our kitchen and i too like it ( although i keep expecting grover or whoever that little red sesame street character was to pop out). Thanks mike, for the opportunity to name your first born son. I vote for either grover (duh) or homer (cause you really knocked out of the park with this cool little contraption.

I’m really happy with this compost bin. I don’t have composting available in my apartment, so i take this pail with me to work 1–2 times per week and put the contents in my employer’s curbside compost bin. This means i have to leave the empty, yet very wet and smelly, pail in my car while i’m at work, and my car never smells when i get in at the end of the day. I wash the pail out when i get home before refilling it, and it’s super easy to clean.

Fun company – great product. This is a great addition to my kitchen counter. It’s handy for me to add my kitchen scraps and keep for a few days before taking to the compost pile. The charcoal filter really does its job – there has not been an smidgen of smell coming from my countertop compost bin. The company has great customer service – and a super fun email announcing they’ve shipped your product – worth buying just for that. Thanks earthcycle i have had fun reading your emails (can’t say that about any others – usually i delete) but yours are witty and make me smile. I will definitely be doing more business with your company.

Premium Quality Stainless Steel Compost Bin 1 : Heavy stainless pail that can be scrubbed out cleanly

I really like this item but the problem is so do the. I really like this item but the problem is so do the fruit flies. I empty it every day but still fruit flies get in and reproduce. After two weeks of fighting fruit flies i had to stop using it but i do like it. The only thing i don’t like, other than fruit flies, is the top is a little hard to get off of it.

If you have pets i know you’ll love it. I am extremely happy with this beautiful stainless steel compost bin. Mine is placed on the floor near the back door and we have several dogs, one of which is a ‘compost frequenter. ‘ this bin with it’s filtered cover has absolutely no attraction to her. That in itself makes it priceless but its sleek, easy to clean surface complete with handle makes it an item that will remain beautifully accenting my kitchen for many years. 3 gallons makes it possible to leave it sit for almost a week in my kitchen before i fill it an run it to the outdoor compost pile. I don’t know how long the filter lasts but it came with an extra one and you can buy more easily.

Premium Quality Stainless Steel Compost Bin 1.3 Gallon, Includes Charcoal Filter

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • This compost bin having capacity of 1.3 gallon is manufactured with high quality grade 201 stainless steel for optimal longevity and durability that won’t scratch, crack or chip
  • You can let the scraps build up during the week without worrying about attracting flies or pests or bad smells into your home
  • The charcoal filters trap and control odors naturally in the bin so you can keep the compost bin in a handy place on your counter until bin is full
  • Sturdy, stylish and sleek design complements any décor so this kitchen compost bin can sit conveniently on your countertop or wherever you need it
  • Easily wash with warm soapy water and for cleaning of filter you shall place your dirty charcoal filter in the bin having dishwashing soap and allow it to soak

All that glitters is not gold. Item is a stunningly beautiful, brushed, stainless steel that has a nice solid ‘weight’ to it. I would give it a 5+++ on appearance and feel. Actual usefulness (to me) is another story. The lid closes down on the bucket with a nice, solid ‘thwump’ that let’s you know that nothing is going to creep in around that lid. Just know, however, that it will take you both hands to get it open – which is kind of hard if you are holding kitchen compost (eggshells?) in one of those hands. You will have to lay the whatever down and use both hands. In fact, it is really best to plan on wrapping your whole arm around the bucket, and pulling the lid off with the other hand, firmly. Despite the solidity of the lid/bucket construction, however, the real problem comes from the holes in the top of the lid (readily apparent in the picture). Despite a nice, filter fitted around the inside lip of the lid (removed, washed, and re-inserted with great difficulty.

Sleek and pretty and ‘not gross like the bowl, mom’. I’ve held off getting a high quality compost bin for years. Glass bowls, plastic containers that are about to be tossed, a plate. All of these items have been used in the past to hold my kitchen scraps. Finally, after dealing with the hated fruit flies this august, we decided to break down and purchase an actual compost bin. It’s gorgeous and feels pretty substantial when i pick it up. We have a much-beloved but often irksome cat who loves to knock things off the counters and i think she’ll struggle with this one. It’s not excessively heavy, but it’s substantial enough to thwart her efforts. There is no compost smell with this bin, and the fruit flies are much improved. I have still seen some inside the bin, but we have probably 85% fewer fruit flies now and those can be taken care of by some apple cider vinegar/dish soap traps.

Good quality, nice looking compost bin for the kitchen. I have got a large earth machine composter that sits in the back yard. I bought this bin about a couple of weeks ago. This small bin works well for collecting collecting food scraps in the kitchen for 2-3 days between trips to the outdoor bin. The bin seems to durable (non-flimsy), has a nice polished look to it and has worked well to keep bad odors at bay. I was realy pleased about the last part. I use compostible 3 gallon bin liners for convenience.

Premium Quality Stainless Steel Compost Bin 1.3 Gallon, Includes Charcoal Filter : Great as long as the seams hold. The bin’s simple stainless steel design is sleek & attractive. It’s a great size to sit on our 6″ kitchen window sill with only a little over 1″ hanging off & it’s very well weighted so it stays in place without any danger of tipping over or falling off. It will hold at least a week of our kitchen scraps in a 2 person household & the charcoal filter is amazing for knocking out all smell. The inside of the can is very smooth so it’s easy to rinse out any residue. I only have three cons but they aren’t deal breakers. One, the biggest one, is that the seams on the bottom of the can are visible & though it seems well crafted, i’m a bit concerned it may end up leaking over time. That could just be paranoia from prior experiences though, so i’ll try to update in 6 months or immediately if it starts to leak. Secondly, the finish does show water splashes & finger prints a bit so i have to wipe it down thoroughly every couple days to keep it looking nice. And lastly, if the bin gets too full it starts to press up into the charcoal filter in the lid so it gets it kind of grimy & can even push it out of its slot if you keep pushing the lid on when the bin is full.

Heavy stainless pail that can be scrubbed out cleanly. We received a plastic lined garbage pail a few years ago as a gift. No matter how you scrub it it smells almost immediately after it has been emptied and cleaned. Baking soda helped a little. Stainless was the obvious solution. I told my wife to leave the peelings, etc. In a bowl next to this bin and i place them in this garbage pail when i wash the dishes. (you shouldn’t be handling a garbage pail at all when cooking, even to press the pedal which opens the lid. ) a poly liner isn’t a solution; we’d just have a stinky bag until the trash is incinerated. I haven’t scrubbed this yet; i’ll update it when i do.

It has a very classy and sleek bright stainless steel finish and feels solid. The lid closes very tight, especially after putting in the bio-degradable compost bags. So be careful when opening it up. If you pull too hard you might end up wearing your compostable food scraps. I gave this five stars because i am very impressed with the quality of the product. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to compost but not wanting to have a plastic bag of stinky scraps hanging from their back door. The lid has a filter in it and does a fine job.

Sleek look, great price, 100% guarantee satisfaction. I m so happy with the sleek look of this bin, i really didn’t want a “mini garbage can” look in my new kitchen. I was hesitant about purchasing this product because of the recent negative reviews about “pinhole leaks” before i started using this product i filled it with water and let it sit overnight. It seemed to be the simplest solution to finding leaks, and there was not a single problem. The company also states on the cover of their brochure “if you are not 100% satisfied for any reason, before you leave a negative review contact us. We will do what it takes to resolve the issue and make you 100% satisfied. ” to me, what else can you ask for out of a company?. So it makes me wonder if those negative reviewers ever even tried to allow the company to satisfy them and make right. I am so glad i purchased what i really liked and ignored the couple of bad reviews.

It does what it’s supposed to do, and looks a lot better doing it, compared to the plastic coffee tub i was using before. It also cleans up a lot better, and i don’t have to worry about the lid splitting like the coffee tub.

Exactly as the picture shows, though thought it’d be a little bigger, like my old plastic one, but this is serving the purpose i wanted it for and i’m currently and completely happy with it. The lid does seal tightly, for me anyways, with a biodegradable bag in it to help with easy removing it. The old plastic one kept attracting fruit flies and gnats, but with the tight sealing lid of this one, i know i do not have to worry. Oh and a huge bouns that i like about this, the charcoal filter covers the entire lid.

The stainless steel container makes for easy cleaning, and the carbon filters block all the smells that sometimes go with composting in the kitchen. This is truly a great way to compost and i love this product.

Our compost pile is huge and breaking down terrific. We use this every day and it has made composting so much easier. We were using a glass bowl sitting on the counter, but this is much nicer. After four months we have not had to replace the filters at all. Not a bit of smell comes out of this container and we empty it once every two or three days. It’s blends well with the rest of our kitchen, and stays out of the way. Our compost pile is huge and breaking down terrific. I can’t wait to get the garden going this year.

Besides being an attractive addition to our kitchen, it is perfect for food scraps to take out to the farmyard. It has a nice brushed stainless finish and the lid fits tight. It was shipped the same day and arrived in perfect condition. Plus the owner of the business sent me a personal letter that was assuring of my satisfaction with his product. All in all a very delightful experience.

I’ve been searching for a compost bin for some time. Mainly because i was tired of my cat rummaging in my makeshift paper bag scraps collector on my countertop. I wasn’t nearly as satisfied with finding something high quality at a reasonable price until i found this linkyo. It didn’t have enough reviews in comparison to the well known brands to give me consumer confidence. Instead i relied exclusively on its selling points. So i really took a chance on this one and purchased it anyway. It’s been in use for about a week and i’m just a very satisfied owner. The construction is well made, sturdy and attractive on my kitchen island. The odor emission test passed of which i credit my cat for taking no notice of it for inspecting its contents.

I am a gardener and try to save and use as much as i can to help the earth. This is my second compost bin that i have purchased for my kitchen. The first one was plastic, which was a bad choice because plastic holds odors and the fruit fly problem was driving me nuts. I finally decided enough was enough and was looking for something better when i found this. I have had this thing for a couple months now and i have to admit that i am kind of lazy about dumping it out often, not that you could tell. The charcoal filters are absolutely amazing. I haven’t been able to smell even the slightest whiff decay until the lid comes off. Clean up is a breeze as well, especially not having to soak it with vinegar water to get the odors out like i did with my last one. I am very pleased with this product, i’m glad i decided to buy it.

Best counter top non-smelling kitchen scrap compost bin. I love this counter top compost bin. It doesn’t take up much space especially since i have a small kitchen. The lid has a filter so the yucky smells don’t escape into the kitchen and odorize the house. I would definitely recommend this.

PriorityChef Compost Bin Stainless Steel – Love the easily removable top!

On its first day in the kitchen. On its first day in the kitchen, it’s already half-full, and not a fruit fly or funny smell around it. It’s small enough to fit under the sink, but i find i like it better on the corner of the countertop where it’s easy to reach. –we lined ours with a plastic grocery bag (which is just the right size for the can, incidentally) because we’re lazy, and because it’s easier for us to tote out the compost and then recycle the bag, but lining the can is totally unnecessary. It’s stainless on the inside and easily washable. You’ve saved us from the fruit-fly curse.

Recommended product and seller. Did a lot of research and the 2 selling points were the rubber handle and light weight construction along with the tight no odor top are spot on. . Its made well and doesn’t take enormous space on the countertop. I’d recommend this product and seller. . Quick ship and great price.

Best kitchen counter composter. Best kitchen counter composter. I’ve tried a few over the years and wish i had found this from the beginning. The size is perfect for a busy household, flies have been eliminated, it looks nice on the counter. Durable, easy to carry while dumping into garden compost, easy to clean, and at a good price. Seriously wish i had found this from the beginning. Would have saved myself the aggravation of fruit flies, plastic handles that can break and dump scraps at inconvenient times, and look tacky in any setting. Researching it was difficult & timely; save yourself the trouble of looking any farther.

  • We LOVE it. On its first day in the kitchen
  • Best Kitchen Counter Composter
  • A pleasant surprise!

When i purchased this item i was skeptical on whether the stink of the rotting compost material would smell terrible just like if they sit in the trash a few days. I have a large compost bin but found it was just too much trouble to bring out a tiny piece of scrap vegetables. I was pleasantly surprised to see some kind of filter which prevented smells from escaping. For me, this is just the right size. I have no idea how long the filter will last but it’s been over a month with zero smells, sometimes leaving scraps in there for several days.

I don’t empty my compost bin every day (or every other day, really). I’m one of those folks who likes to fill theirs up before they toss the contents out and that’s why i like this bin so much. It holds a decent amount of biodegradable waste, has a mouth wide enough for me to bang the handle of my french press on and have all of the coffee grounds tumble into it, and (super importantly) it does not stink up the kitchen (when i haven’t emptied it in 5 days). It’s sturdy, rinses clean, and looks classy (for a waste bucket) sitting on my counter next to the sink.

This compost bin is a great size for the kitchen and keeps smells at bay. This compost bin is a great size for the kitchen and keeps smells at bay. It’s easy to rinse out when needed (we use compost bags inside of it for city compost) and has a clean look (aesthetically pleasing enough to leave out on the counter). I have been very happy with this purchase.

It was time for another compost bin as our first bin was showing its age. I like the grip on the handle, the lid has a nice seal but also easy to remove. We keep it tucked under our sink but pull it out when we’re chopping veggies etc.

A really high quality compost pail and i really like that it is from a small business. This a really high quality compost pail and i really like that it is from a small business. I would definitely recommend this and would buy this again. Thanks priority chef for reaching out to make sure we were satisfied with our order.

No more gnats in my kitchen . We use this to keep composting items in the kitchen til we can get it out to the big composter in the back. Our problem was gnats starting to turn up in the kitchen after a day. This seems to have illuminated that issue which makes me want to compost more. Bought this on a lightning deal so was a great buy which is an extra plus. The only reason i held back a 5th star is cause i am not positive about the composting capability.

This has been a great addition to the kitchen. We love the design and fits perfectly under the sink. The lid fastens nicely on the canister. Customer service was also incredible by following up immediately after it was delivered.

Excellent quality and design. Excellent quality, very pleased with the style and design. I like that the lid fits perfectly as my last compost bucket the lid was too tight and difficult to remove. I wish it came with extra filters. I would have paid a little higher price if it had.

Never smell a thing, visually fits right in. Exactly what i wanted for the kitchen counter top. It has a slightly looser lid that a previous almost identical model, which is a good thing because the rim on the old one split after several years. The silicone on the handle makes it quieter.

They’re not a super tight fit but you can adjust them. They’re not a super tight fit but you can adjust them. No smell, looks good on the counter, yet compact enough to put under the sink if neededencouraging us to be more thoughtful in what goes in the trash. This is a great size for a family of 3. No issues with it being too small and holds a lot. If i can stay consistent with this i may eventually start comoposting it vs. Just putting it in the big green can for the garbage crew men to take.

We are super happy with this purchase. It’s super high quality, especially for the price. Great addition for the counter top. The size is just right to keep put all the time. It really does keep in odors and keeps the fruit flies away.

My first one arrived dented, so i sent an email with a picture and it was promptly replaced at no extra charge. Excellent customer service and quality product. I have used the new replacement bin for a couple of weeks–and it looks good in my kitchen. Also, no odors with the filter included– even with onion skins, banana peels, coffee grounds, etc. I highly recommend the compost bin and the company for quality products and prompt, excellent customer service.

My mother wanted a compost bin outside. After my father broke a bowl we decided to get bin he could not break. I liked the soft handle, stainless steel for cleanness and small enough to but vegetable scraps in.

Love the easily removable top. This compost bin is a huge improvement over my old compost bin. The cover is solid and doesn’t get wedged in, but comes out easily. Each time i open the top it is a joy.Looking forward to having many years of use in my kitchen. Looks lovely on my counter as well.

Full Circle Fresh Air odor-free kitchen compost collector – Excellent! Wish it came in another color, but otherwise most excellent.

If you don’t want your bags to disintegrate. We’ve purchased this back on earth day in 2012 and have used it every day since then. We will go through 2 or 3 bags a week for our coffee ground, tea leaves, egg shells, soiled napkins & paper towels, avocado pit & skin, vegetable trimmings, and garlic & onion skins. Anything larger than these items are placed in our stainless steel bowl and dumped directly into the compost pile – especially banana peels, which the fruit flies love. If you don’t want your bags to disintegrate before you can take it out to the municipal compost bin or your backyard, just make sure nothing is dripping wet in the first place. I usually let the coffee ground sit out for a while after the coffee is made so the paper coffee filter can dry out a little before placing into the bin. The 3 gallon biobags are a perfect fit for this compost bin and the best place to purchase these are through costco – a box of 125 bags cost only $12. The bag holder in our compost bin is 100% metal, no plastic.

Had this for a few months now. Some of the reviews worried me about its durability, but whatever issues this thing has had in the past seem to have been fixed. It’s well-made, easy-to-clean, and doesn’t smell or collect gross compact juice like the air-sealed bins. This is perfect for someone who lives in an apt or something and can’t keep the compost bin outside.

The last compost bin you’ll ever buy. This is the best compost bin ever. The air flow keeps the compost from getting stinky and it doesn’t get moldy and gross like other compost bins. For a couple, one compostable bag usually lasts us about a week and it still is smell free and happy after a week. Typically it never needs to be cleaned as the food touches only the bag and it’s easy to remove and put in another one. When we overfill it and the inside of the lid gets a bit dirty, it’s easy to pull it apart and put it in the dishwasher to get it shiny clean again. We’ve had this for several years and it still looks like new and works great. Well made, well designed and highly recommended.

This container works well for my composting purposes. I like the tab that will release the lid without my having to use two hands. No, it’s not fruit-fly-proof, but i just need to be more diligent in making sure no vegetable matter is in the way of the seal. Also, it’s not totally odor-free if the lid opens. I don’t care how much fresh air it gets around the sides, when the lid is up, odors do escape. But i like it loads better than the stainless steel bucket with lid i used to use.

Features of Full Circle Fresh Air odor-free kitchen compost collector, Green Slate

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Patented design lets air flow through for less odor and fewer flies
  • Opens easily with a push of a button
  • Easy to clean and empty for less mess
  • Ready to use, including five compostable bags
  • Perfect size for home and office (1.5 gallon)
  • Earth friendly materials: Recycled plastic, partially recycled steel

Nice sized composter that works great. Prior to the full circle compost collector, i would use a large plastic container to stuff compost into. It was inconvenient, attracted knats/flies, and left a mess in the container every time i dumped it. After doing this for awhile, i finally caved in and decided to look for a compost collector to make composting “more convenient”. After a lot of research, this composter seemed to be the best buy. Having not used any other composters, i can’t compare this composter to others, but i can share the upsides and downsides in my experience:upsides (pros)- single button push releases lid, which has a spring to throw it open for quick access. – the air flow is nice and combined with the bags, help control odor/knats. – it’s not small like the container i used before, so i can go several days before having to remove the bag. – because it uses bio-degradable bags, the unit stays fairly clean. Downsides (cons)- have to buy bags (but it also makes for easy transport to compost recycling bin).

Wish it came in another color, but otherwise most excellent. . I am new to the composting (thanks to my transient lifestyle, now settled so i finally ams starting a pile) and i was looking for any and all tools to help. I liked the idea of having a kitchen collecting area so trips to the actual compost site could be consolidated. Let’s face it, if it’s easy i am more likely to do it. Keeping a smaller container and making sporadic trips to the compost pile definitely falls under the making it easy theme. I was worried about odor though. One hint of an odor and i knew this would not fly. I am very happy to report after letting things build up for a week, including onions, old banana peels and other odor-inducing items i only smelled something if i actively had the lid opened. It stood an entire week before i emptied it and there was nothing unpleasant going on.

Full circle kitchen compost collector. This is a good product, and i am happy with it. It is a great improvment over what i was using(an ice cream bucket). There has been no discernable odor from it. There has been some mould growing in it, and there have been some fruit flies. I had hoped to get completely away from the flies, but there are still some. I like the push button type lid, it makes it easy to open. I like the wire around the top to help hold the composting bag. It was expensive, for shipping it to canada. It’s not exactly what i wanted, but it’s the best i’ve found so far.
