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.

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.
