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.

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.

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.

So convenient on the kitchen counter for all those rinds, coffee grounds, egg sheels and peelings that it has me hooked on composting. . Thanks you x-chef love it.

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. I believe i am going to use a silver sharpe to maybe draw on composter just for added decoration. It is a little bigger than i thought, but i’m not complaining.

This simple stainless steel bin has changed the way we compost food in the household. With the carbon filters it doesn’t smell. It’s small size makes it a nice companion to put next to the sink. It’s also surprisingly sturdy. My wife was skeptical when we first bought it, but it’s become a fixture in our minimalist kitchen.

Kitchen Compost Bin, X-Chef Stainless Waste Bin with Cover Trash Can 1.2 Gallon Double Filter : I just started composting and i wanted a smaller bin that i could hold scraps in until i took it to the outside compost bin. It does a great job of keeping the smell and flies out of it. I have it sitting on my counter right by the sink and no one pays any attention to it. It has a very nice, durable decision so it is not an eye sore.

Even if the compost inside smells bad, the lid really filters it out, and it doesn’t look bad in my kitchen. I use this and then eventually empty it into my outdoor compost bin, so i’m not sure how well it works for the rest of the compost cycle. I fill mine up about once a week.

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.

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 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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Norpro 1 Gallon Ceramic Compost Keeper, White

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • 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.

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.

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.

This filter will work in other stainless steel type bins that look like this one. These work perfectly as described – we fill at least one compost bin a week and change our filters every 4-6 months, depending. This filter will work in other stainless steel type bins that look like this one. (ours is not an oggi brand).

Just what it is — the right filters for my pail. They came right on time (from amazon fulfillment). I guess one thing that would have been helpful might have been instructions on how to stuff the round filter and square filter into the round hole in the lid. I finessed them in eventually.

Great filters that do the job. These filters fit our compost pail perfectly and are excellent at absorbing all the foul odors. A lot cheaper than some of the others too. It says a set of two, which means one square and one round filter. So enough for one replacement. Still an excellent purchase.

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.
