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.

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.

    I wanted decorative and functional. I wanted something decorative. I always use a liner inside, so i do not have to clean a messy crock. I do not carry the crock to my compost bin, but rather just carry the filled liner. Then i do not have to worry about breaking the crock or if the handle is to difficult to use (as other reviews have said).
