InterDesign Spa Rectangular Trash – Nice, except

My bathroom but it was a bit smashed into the shipping box and it messed up the shape.

This is a great shade of green. It goes nicely if you have a glass vessel sink that has that similar hue to it.

Exactly what i was looking for.

Seemed like a nice sized, sturdy trash can. The color didn’t really match the picture though so i had to return it.

This is a great quality waste basket even more substantial than i thought it would be.

The color in person is a bit more bold than what i pictured from the photo. It’s still a great color just much deeper color.

Purchased this trash can twice. They are nice size and very sturdy.

Exactly the color it looks like in the picture.

Matches perfectly with my intelligent design id70-365 nadia shower curtain in teal and matching floor mats. Large trash can but still small enough to fit between the toilet and wall. Sleek design and beautiful color brings an elegant touch to the bathroom. Super easy to clean, strong durable product.

It is almost an opalescent jade green colouring.

This look wonderful in my daughters bathroom.

Good for small dorm room area. Shipping fast to afghanistan. Here are the specifications for the InterDesign Spa Rectangular Trash:

Love the color and goes perfectly with the guest bathroom accessories.

Great size for between the wall and the toilet.

I researched trash cans a little obsessively (a lot obsessively?) and finally settled on these because i liked the colors. So far they are all gorgeous and a great size for bedrooms and bathrooms. I was worried about getting something too small but these are a good size–generous without being huge. We did have one which arrived cracked (in a giant box with other items and clearly was smushed) but they are sending us a new one immediately without charge.

Matches the shower curtain perfectly.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Nice, except
  • Seemed like a nice sized
  • Nice Product

Beautiful color, brought a pop of color to my bathroom.

Beautiful color, just as pictured. My picture shows more blue but, it is on the green side. There is white, powdery substance inside plastic and air pockets, all around bottom trash can. Might return it because of this.

This is a nice sturdy wastebasket. We use it in our bathroom and i love the size of it as well. It is not too small and it is not too large. It matches well with the shower curtain we purchased and looks nice in our bathroom.

It appears to be a bit transparent. I would prefer an opaque color.

Really nice and luv the color but it has white stuff within the material on along the sides and the bottom.

Matches the shower curtain i bought here.

iTouchless Multifunction Matte Finish Trash Can, Works and looks great!

Great for when you have messy hands and don’t want to or don’t have the coordination to step on a pedal to open the can. It’s about the same size as the round ones for bathrooms but somehow looks smaller. I like that i can wave my hand (or foot) above the sensor and the lid opens and stays open for a few seconds vs. Having to continually step on a lever or see into an open bin. I haven’t found (or really looked very hard) bags that fit this design but the regular grocery bags fit fine if you don’t mind seeing some of the bag folded over the edge of the bin.

Works really well, it a bit noisy as other reviews have stated. It was smaller than i thought it would be but i can still find a use for it. I will probably look for one that is a bit bigger for my needs.

Services the purpose very well.

Fast shipping and awesome product.

I took this trash can out of the box today and set it up. The setup was quick and easy. I bought the 13-gallon version for my kitchen a few weeks before ordering this model for my bathroom. Never thought i’d buy fancy trash cans, but i am a bit germphobic, and it’s so nice to avoid touching anything that touches trash. Also, they look much neater and cleaner than the plastic cans i used to have.

This trash can is perfect for our needs. Our little dog had been stealing from the trash lately bc we had a flimsy lid on our old can. I needed something slender to fit a tight space plus a heavier and sturdier base so she can’t knock it over (our old one was plastic and this one is metal). I also wanted a good seal on the lid to deter her. She hates mechanical and electrical noises (my laptop is her arch nemesis. I had to turn off all system sounds). This trash can makes the faintest sound when opening and closing and she is very wary of it.

This trash was the perfect size. Its a little loud but works for me.

Comments from buyers

“Perfect size, perfect function
, PERFECT!
, Works and looks great!

It’s perfect and works well, with no issues and i’ve had it quite a while now.

It is small but we enjoy it.

I have purchased two of these trash cans. I hate looking at trash and since you don’t have to touch it or step on a pedal, it is quick and easy to use. The rubber ring holds the bags in place so there is no looking at the bag either.

Like it’s father, the son is as nice to have.

This is the 4th itouchless trash can i’ve purchased in the last 10 years and i love and still use them all. They’re attractive, have dependable mechanisms, easy to clean and batteries last a long, long time. I love the deoderizer feature in the small can which i use in the guest bathroom.

These little garbage cans are so cute. I have a 13 gallon one in the kitchen and i’ve never had a problem with it so when i saw these little 4 gallon cans, i thought they would be perfect in the laundry room and master bath and i was right. I bought them from the amazon warehouse, so i saved a little bit of money also. I can deal with a dented box if i’m getting an additional 20% or more off the regular price.

This trash can is just the right size for our bathroom. My purpose in buying it was to have a covered trash can that reduce odor. As a bonus, i like the way the bag is held into place such that it never falls down into the can and is not visible from the outside of the can.

I dislike that ut gets full real fast.

Works very well, keeps odors inside.

Great for keeping the odors out of the house, however my dachshund’s long nose trips the sensor.

Wow, this trash can is amazing. You wave your hand over the top and it flies open, then you drop in your trash and it flies shut. It holds a lot of trash too.

I like this trash can for it’s look, but the sensor mechanism is very slow and you practically have to touch the sensor for it to respond. Doesn’t help if you’ve got a handful of dripping food and you have to sit there and wait for the dang thing to realize you’re standing right there.

We bought this to use as a composting bin in our kitchen and it works great. Though i bought compostable bags online for it, i realized today that some grocery stores produce bags are compostable and fit in it perfectly. We planned on keeping it on the kitchen floor next to the counter top but the odor filter works so well that we keep it in a cupboard and it doesn’t create any weird food scents in there.

Works perfectly and fulfills my needs. I use it in the kitchen and it’s great for keeping odors out. The sensor also works great and i don’t have to try multiple times to get it to open. Overall, it’s really convienient and worth it. I would definitely recommend this to someone.

But sometimes it won’t open or close automatically and needs to be reset by turning it off and back on to work.

Do be sure to read the directions; some comments were about sensor not working well and the solution per instructions was to remove thin protective film over the buttons, first.

It does what its suppose to bathroom trash can, it pops up , accept ones trash and close the lid. The charcoal filter is a nice touch but don’t really need one. Plus the price is reasonable un like other models.

I don’t have to bend over as far and empty as often.

5 gallon itouchless a few weeks now and loooove it. I got for my small apartment bathroom and it fits nicely between the small space between the toilet and sink counter/cabinet. I have a small dog so i prefer a lid on the bathroom trash for obvious reasons to the majority of other ladies. The touchless motion sensor lid opening/closing works great. This extremely helpful instead of step-lids or swinging lids type small trash cans – especially where the only place for a trash can in my little bathroom.

Beautiful and lovely addition to my restroom.

Easy to use, motion detector works well, and lid opens all the way and stays open long enough (others i’ve purchased in the past closed too quickly). I’m concerned that it may be slightly too narrow (wish they made a 6 gal), but for now i’m very pleased.

Great small automatic trash can.

Love the looks, size, and the lid with motion detector. Nice looking in our family room. Don’t have to look at the garbage anymore or “lift the lid” with hand or by tapping a foot pedal. We sometimes have to wave our hand over the sensor a couple of times to get the lid to open but that’s a minor inconvenience. We have two larger motion detector lid garbage cans and love them.

I recommend the itouch automatic touch-less sensor trash can. It fulfilled all my requirements including small size for small bathroom and touch-less operation. Agree with some reviews that the open-shut operation sounds clunky but it’s not bad-enough to say don’t buy it. The white color is not a dead-white which was my preference; but the off-white works. The tiny red light on top of the unit that flashes every few seconds is also mildly irritating but getting used to it.

1.Gallon Mini Slim Trash Can (Gray and Black) (Gray) – Five Stars

It’s an inexpensive tiny waste basket for the bath — nothing outstanding or terrible about it.

Imagine a gallon of milk, but slightly smaller. That is basically the size of this trash can. I got it for my guest bath to hide lady unmentionables from eye view. Nothing else needs to be said.

It is smaller than i had hoped for, but it will do. I like that it has a lid that attaches to the trash can.

Smaller than i thought it’d be.

It was just what i needed right size right color works well in the bathroom.

Smaller than i thought but works perfect for my small area that i have it.

  • Great for countertop use in kitchen or commercial setting, too big for a desktop, too small as the main trash for a bathroom
  • Small, cute, perfect for tight spaces
  • It’s OK, not great

It is smaller that what i thought, however it does the job.

Fit in the small space needed on my rv.

Perfectpurchased for use: as a countertop trash can for coffee trash (stir sticks, sugar packets, creamer cups etc. )size: perfect for kitchen/commercial countertop use (tall enough for the tall wood stir sticks to fit and still have several inches height extra). May work in a bathroom if space is limited or a separate bin is needed for feminine products. Plastic thickness is mid-range (not patio furniture thick but not so thin that you squeeze and it looses it’s shape). Colors: even color tones, no blochiness or fading. Finish on all colors is matte (base is also grey, not metallic). Style: neutral contemporary, blends nicely with our grey and white office kitchen. Much cheaper than brand names (like simplehuman, umbra etc.

The good: it’s white, it has a lid, it is small enough to fit into the limited space i had available. The not-so-good: it’s flimsy. The swinging portion of the lid didn’t move smoothly at first. After some adjustment of the snap-in-place connection and after carefully filing and smoothing the parts that snagged, it now works just fine. While the description says it has ‘2 handles for easy carrying,’ the item i received had no handles. Given the tiny size of this wastebasket, the small protrusion shown in the product photo could hardly be called a handle. Of course, the product description also said the plastic was high quality and that the swing lid opened easily, so there you go. The size shown in the dimensions – 6 x 11. 5 inches – was about right; it’s roughly the size of a sheet of paper, with the lid. The disappointing: this mini trash can/wastebasket is way overpriced for what it is. The flimsy quality looks like something you’d pick up at the dollar store. If the price had reflected that poor quality, i would have figured that i’d gotten what i paid for. As it is, i feel like i overpaid for what i got.

It is an absolute requirement of being a respectable host to provide a bathroom trashcan with a lid. This one is nice and small, i especially appreciate that it’s narrow so it can squeeze into a tight fit between toilet and sink. Like me, this isn’t anything fancy, it’s simple and white, but it gets the job done.

Good trash can kitchen counter top. Fits a normal supermarket plastic bag inside.

Small, tiny, perfect for counter top or vehicle. Does tip over in vehicle so i applied velcro to bottom to stick to carpet in car.

Perfect for my small office, sits on desktop.

Very nice and perfect for rv or camper bathroom.

I expected this to be cheap, but the lid is too big so it doesn’t lock down on the bottom.

I misread the description and expected a slightly larger can.

GiniHome Small Trash Can, This is a great and high quality woven basket

We are definitely getting good mileage out of this wastebasket. It matches our existing seagrass blanket hamper well in color and feel. A grocery store plastic vegetable bag is the right size to be reused in this basket as a fitting liner. It’s also heavy enough that the cats aren’t knocking it over, nor are they trying to claw the woven ropelike material. If you’re looking for a lightweight but sturdy wicker-style wastebasket for non-food waste, this one is a winner.

This little receptacle arrived in great condition and is doing its job, as promised. It’s smallish, so take measurements before buying for your space. I placed mine in my bathroom, to match my new, brushed nickel hardware. It’s doing a fine job holding my trash. I line mine with a standard plastic bag, to protect it from anything gooey or wet, and it’s just the right size. It’s durable and the finish is nice. I suggest rounding out your order with some smaller items that will fit inside the container during shipping. I bought a couple of small, light boxes of other products that were placed inside this trash can for shipping and they were not crushed. Great price, compared to the other, ridiculously priced and apparently cheaply made items on amazon.

As described, deliveredbon time.

It’s very well-made and sturdy. It looks great in my half bath.

Using in our guest room bath.

This small can meets my need in a small bathroom. The metal finish is lovely and came without any damage.

This is a nice upgrade to my home office waste bin – it makes my trash look great :- ).

Comments from buyers

“Keeps the dog out
, Great Little Accent for the Bathroom
, Perfect

The size was perfect and it will work well with my decor.

This is a great and high quality woven basket. Additionally it is very unique looking and nothing else i’ve seen is comparable. It resembles that williams sonoma look. I am a huge golfer and i use this to store golf balls as a piece in my living room.

Not too big, not too small to hold our weekly bathroom trash. Easy to clean and keep looking new.

Looks good in my bathroom and perfect size.

This is a great waste paper bin can for my office. It’s the perfect size and very sturdy. Buying a trash bin is not something you want to dwell on or do more than once so i’m super pleased this worked out so well.

Good quality for ‘economical’ bathroom trashcan. Actual metal and not painted plastic.

This trash can is beautiful. It matches chrome decor in a bathroom amazing and really brings a little extra to the room with the shine. It was a great value and i enjoyed it so much i purchased other matching items from the manufacturer.

I got this trash to keep my dog from getting into the trash. It’s small, but a good size for a bathroom trash that you don’t want to stand out as a main feature in the bathroom. The only thing i wish it had was a feature to keep grip on the floor a little better. When i step on the pedal to open it, it slides a little on the tile every time.

Very proactive customer service, though i had no issues with the basket at all. This will fit any decor from college chic to island to african to art deco. Like any good trashcan (imo) it just sort of blends into the background. Good construction, very sturdy. I expect to use this for years. If you own a cat (i don’t but my gf does) the texture is going to tempt it. Easy to line with commercial can liners or (as i do) with plastic bags from the grocery. Doesn’t have any real smell to speak of and doesn’t seem to absorb trash smells easily. Very nice, clean, affordable and attractive product. I’d buy another if i needed two.

Solid for my kids bath and very nice looking, loved the brushed aluminum surface.

I like this a lot, but wish it had a liner on the inside as my plastic bags snag on the wicker.

This is a very nice looking waste paper basket. I use it in my office and it looks great there. The craftsmanship & material is very good. This basket will last a very long time. Definitely worth the money .

Great look – the true test will be to see if it lasts and doesn’t rust over time.

The first one i received was completely crooked and looked bad. The company replaced it and the new one looks great. Great customer service, thank you.

Nice pale pink, soft close top, removable bucket. Perfect size for the bathroom, keeps the pets out the trash.

I noticed that in other reviews an unappealing smell was noticed. There was no overwhelming smell on the one i purchased. If anything it had a muted earthy smell. I like an earthy smell so it does not bother me. It functions as a trash can is supposed to. It arrived in a timely manner and in great condition. I would definitely recommend this waste basket.

This is a perfect fit for my bathroom. It had to fit between the toilet and the vanity and it does.

It is a good garbage can for a small or medium bedroom, but it is smaller then it looks. I kept it because it is ok for my bedroom but wish it was a little bigger.

This wastebasket is just what i needed. I bought additional ones for the guest bathroom and my bedroom. Very durable and easy to keep clean.

The trash can is very nice looking, but unfortunately it has a good sized dent. I’m not going to bother to return it, i’ll just put the dent at the back.

I like the looks of it, but finger prints do show.

We really like the trash can.

Nice sized trash can for a bedroom or bathroom – i bought one for each. Finish is nice and smooth, and it’s quite durable.

Heavy duty and very attractive. Am probably going to buy another.

Brabantia Step Trash Can newIcon : Nice looking!

I really like this trash can, i may end up getting another.

I think this is a nice trash can. I was very disappointed to order a clay pink trash can and receive a stainless steel can. I am not sure if it is worth the effort to exchange the trash can, but i wish i would have received what i ordered. It makes me less likely to order from this distributor/retailer again.

Normally i don’t write reviews, but when i do it’s definitely for a cute dustbin. This is the most adorable looking bin i’ve ever used and the bags that come with it are even cuter lol i might have to order brand bags from now on. Pros:astheticreally nice finish and shine, high quality interiorlid closes slowly and elegantlyslim(is this a con for you?)cons:they might steal your partner since they’re too cute.

One for my kitchen in the 8 gallon size and one for my bathroom in the 1. The only problem is that the inner liner can does absorb odors a bit. . Not the worst thing in the world because you don’t smell it when the trash can is closed but it would be nice if they used a non-porous plastic.

I read all the reviews and was resigned to possibly having to exchange a few times to get one in decent shape, but mine arrived packaged well and in perfect condition. The moss green is gorgeous, just like it looks online. The foot pedal works well, very quiet and the soft close is great. I will use waterproof tape to cover the ventilation holes in the liner so that i can use this for recycle without a plastic bag. It won’t work for cardboard or big pieces, but for cans and bottles it will be plenty big enough, and that is what i wanted it for.

It looks great and it keeps odors in. I’m getting another one for my friend as a house warming gift.

  • Removable inner bucket with matching size Brabantia trash bags available

  • 10 year Brabantia guarantee

Exactly like the picture and super nice. All the reviews about the poor packing got me nervous but i think they learned their lesson because mine came in three boxes and was in perfect shape.

My friend recommended this can to me, i really like it. It doesn’t look like a clunky garbage can, and it works great. Also i don’t think you can get better value for something that looks this good.

Another pricey trash can but i really liked the color, which is the main reason i bought it. I wanted something feminine to go into my office/loft space. I will say this can is bigger than i thought it would be (my mistake completely). I’m giving it only 4 stars because, unlike my simplehuman can (also recently bought and reviewed), i don’t think this one is quite as sturdy. Plus the couple of times i did have to put something that had an odor in it, it didn’t do a great job at masking the smell. Of course, that issue could be caused by the liner. This can only came with 3 sample liners. Due to its height and width (quite skinny),i’m finding it challenging to get liners that don’t peek out from the lid and drape over the sides of the can. However, as far as its looks, it’s a very attractive soft pink with a slight sheen–i never thought i’d use the word ‘pretty’ with a trash can, but that’s exactly what this is.

Love the green color (is as pictured). Pedal makes lid open easily so dirty hands don’t have to touch the lid. The special bags work a lot better but it’s been okay using regular kitchen bags too.

Brabantia makes wonderful stuff. But my bin arrived with a dented lid. The new bins are made from flimsy thin metal that seemingly cannot survive shipment to a customer. Meanwhile, brabantia’s box and packaging doesn’t take into account how amazon will ship it. Mine arrived inside an amazon box with lots of room to swim around in. Just minimal paper packing tossed in around the brabantia box. When it arrived, the outer amazon box was undamaged, as was the inner brabantia box. However, one only has to look at how brabantia protects the lid inside its box to see the problem. If ups tosses the amazon box around, the brabantia lid will get dented, even though it’s inside the brabantia box.

Great colors, great height, great shape. I ordered three of these trash cans in different colors. No fingerprint smudging, stays super clean. The dogs can’t get the lids open. Great overall size to fit bathroom trashes in. I bought one for each bathroom and my camper. Such a great space saver also. I have a smart human trashcan from bed bath & beyond, and these trash cans are so similar.

I bought this to replace an older version of brabantia’s small step trash can. The plastic bucket in the old one (decades old, as i inherited it from my parents) had gotten badly pitted, so that it was impossible to clean. That may happen to this one too over time, but if it lasts me for a couple of decades first, then i can live with that. While it’s not designed to be used as a compost bucket, it’s a perfect size for it, and you can scoop up two handfuls of veggie scraps and open it with the foot-pedal. After having that available to me for a few years, i couldn’t imagine having to do it one-handed as all the compost buckets require. And it fits nicely in a corner instead of taking up valuable counter space.

I love the green color; it looks great in our kitchen, but the lid has a great big dent in the top. Unsure yet if i will keep it.

This stylish item was the perfect addition to our kitchen. And the soft close lid prevents clangy closures.

I hate the dent that came with it. This is more like art work than just a normal trash can and i believe it’s worth the price. I was truly heart broken when i saw the huge dent on the lid. I’ll try for a replacement and hope for the best.

No comparison in quality, like the one i bought 20 years ago, and this new one, the lid cannot be made to stay open on its own, and you must push the pedal down in order to take out or put back in , the inner garbage pail, which is a hassle and i never would have bought it, had i known that.

Brabantia Step Trash Can newIcon with Plastic Inner Bucket, 8 Gal. – White : I took a long time searching for this garbage can. Just the right size and color for my kitchen in my new apartment — and i love the liner which fits into the outer shell. The custom made bags fit just right and prevent any food from sliding down between the liner and the bag.

Its a very nice garbage can and matches our room decor perfectly. It’s actually a perfect fit. It seems to be very high quality also.

All i want to share is what i said out loud when i opened the box upon receipt. ‘wow-that is one beautiful garbage can’everything about it-it’s weight, the slow closing lid, the finish.

Need a taller trash for kitchen. So far dogs can not opeyit yet.

I love this trashcan so much. In fact, when my fiancé and i were splitting up our furniture (we’re fine we just got temporary jobs on opposite sides of the country), i let him keep the electric trash can and i kept this one. It’s got a great shape, slim profile, and holds quite a lot of trash. Yellow is my favorite color, but i have to say it was kind of difficult to choose from the variety of colors they offer. The pedal is very sturdy and you can’t beat the soft close lid. The plastic insert is great and doesn’t hold odors and has suction release holes (something you don’t know you want until you accidentally rip a trash bag trying to get it out). At first it seems pricey, but it comes with a warranty and is a great quality product that is definitely worth the money.

Everything about it was perfect, except it arrived with a dent in the lid. You can only see if from a certain angle, though. Its a beautiful color, though, and everything works perfectly– it’s easy to change the trash bag and the little step thing opens it great. It’s easy to wipe spills off as well.

Big old dent right in the side, even though the packaging was fine. Other then that it’s okay, it’s the right size and it’s light weight. Looks good (aside from the dent) and it’s easy to clean.

I replaced a 16 year old brabatania with this. The original had a metal inner lining with a removable handle. I was very concerned that the bag (i don’t use their brand) wouldn’t stay up without that handle, but after a week of use, i’m comfortable with letting the trash collector take away the boxes from the new one and take the old one. I’m only giving 4 stars because i didn’t have a lot of heavy items – i hope i don’t regret it. I had no issue with dents in the outer can – it was double boxed. I love the quiet close feature, but don’t like that the top doesn’t stay open all the way unless i step on the pedal – not always convenient. I like the idea of a plastic inner pail – easier to wash than the metal one that eventually rusted and stained.

Everyone loves my new trash can.

mDesign Decorative Round Metal Small Trash Can Wastebasket Organizer, Garbage Container Bin for Bathrooms, Kitchens, Home Offices – Brushed Nickel Finish and Polished Chrome Base : Weel made, easy to clean, looks good.

I like the wastebasket i looked lots of places and am very happy with what i have.

Love it, sturdy and nice quality.

This smaller metal trash can is very good looking.

Bought this for the master bath, goes perfectly with the brushed nickle hardware. Worth the price, great quality and very sturdy.

It was a very nice looking wastebasket. It was a gift for my granddaughter for christmas. Her parents are remodeling her bedroom. She needed some new stuff for her new room.

It was heavier than expected which was a nice factor.

A brushed nickel garbage can.

This looks better than i thought it would. The base has a little weight to it so that it won’t tip over, i guess.

This basket is perfect in my newly renovated bathroom, the brushed nickel is beautiful, and the weight of it is very good and sturdy.

Exaco Trading Company Exaco Trading Co : Does the job

Cute, functional, and dishwasher-safe insert. No filters to get fuzzy and have to replace. Haven’t had any fruit-fly or odor problems. I really like this little bucketi saw some confusion in the comments when i was looking to buy, so to clarify — this is not where you make compost (like, break down food scraps into dirt). This is where you collect the scraps that you then take out to your actual compost pile. I have seen some under-counter composting bins but this is not that. However, it does work excellently for its intended purpose.

The size is perfect for what i needed however when the inside bin gets full the handle falls off when trying to pull it out.

We like it for how we use it though i can’t speak to the odor containing abilities. We have a larger compost bin at the back of our property we just use this so we only have to make one trip. Good odor control of emptied daily or every other day.

I love this cute compost bucket. It sits by my sink and isn’t too big or bulky. The lid has a seal so smells don’t escape and i haven’t had the problem others have had with the seal coming off. I don’t smoosh the lid down though, just place it on top. It still keeps smells in and bugs out. And i really put it to the test, putting a moldy onion and some other various half rotten veggies in it. I’ve not had the handle come off like others said and it’s nice to be able to scrub it down really well after each use.

I spent a lot of time comparing various composting buckets and went along with this one because it was the only one that had the internal bucket that comes out. I like the idea of the outer bucket not suffering any banging and wear from the daily trek out to the compost heap and the tapping of the bucket on the side to get everything out, which always results in a warped can and the lid never fits quite right. The internal bucket eliminates that and because it’s plastic, it doesn’t warp as easily as the metal buckets i have had in the past. The major flaws of this bucket however are the flimsy handles on the inner plaster bucket. Obviously was not tested to see if the design worked. It really is just a hole on each side with a piece of wire for the handle that stick into the hole curving into the hole with a couple of mm extending out to catch the bucket into place. The wire pops out of the holes all the time. The trick with it is that you have to take out the compost every day. If you are someone who waits for the bucket to fill up, then reaches in for the little dainty wire handle, you can bet that about 10 steps out the door the handles will pop out from the weight of the contents and you will have compostables all over your kitchen floor. If the bucket is only half full, the handles stay in place.

I have not noticed any stank yet. The bucket on the inside pops out so that you can carry just that part to your bigger bin. The lid seals on pretty well which helps eliminate the stink. I love that the color is nice and plain and blends in well with my kitchen decor without screaming ‘hey there is rotting food inside here’. I am very pleased with this purchase.

  • Bucket-in-bucket design makes it easy to carry out to the compost pile
  • Lid comes with a clear rubber seal to limit odor and pests
  • Made from sheet metal. inner bucket made from polypropylene

I received this bucket as a gift a year ago and have since given it as a gift to three of my family members. It sits on my countertop, so it’s easily accessible while i cook. It contains smells very well because of the seal on the lid. It’s easy to clean because the inner bucket is plastic and removable. The only negative i’ve experienced is the black lettering on the front has smeared a little after i cleaned the metal outer bucket. I didn’t scrub it or use harsh cleaner, so i’m disappointed in that. I have the light green color, which i prefer, but it was not available when i ordered christmas gifts this year.

This is my second compost bin. I keep one for what i feed my red worms and one to go to the compost pile outside. It is easy to use and clean and it looks nice on the counter. The size is perfect – the same as my other one. If they are too big i might not empty it as frequently.

I really like having this small bucket on my sink to collect compostable scraps. I chose this product after seeing/using one while on vacation. I ordered the silver one and there is something different about the finish. My bucket is developing discolored streaks – as though the finish is breaking down. Did not notice that with the painted one. This is an aesthetic matter and does not impact its functionality. Still, it is a good addition to my kitchen.

This does not have a filter, it’s just a container with a lid and a plastic bucket with a handle that fits inside. It looks so pretty sitting on the counter, there is no smell, the lid fits very snugly inside the container, about an inch deep into it so it is not sitting right on top with a crack. We are a couple with no kids, and we empty this into our compost bin every few days, so for that sort of situation, it is perfect. I think it’s probably too small for a bigger family.

It’s a really pretty compost bucket and the green is gorgeous. I get plenty of compliments. I was looking for one that specifically spelled compost in the front and was green, voila. It has a nice rubber seal that doesn’t let the stank out and within the green bucket is a removable white bucket with a handle. Very good quality and worth it.

It is perfect size for my household. Looks great, but there is flaw in inside of the can.

Exactly what i was looking for, fits well on the counter, blends with everything. The only complaint i have is the top does not seal although it does have a rubber sealer around the lid. The flies and fruit flies come and go as they please.

This is perfect for those kitchen scraps that you have on a daily basis. When it gets full, simply pull the insert out and take it to the compost bin to dump it. Rinse out the container and you are back in business.

Just like what the other reviewers said. The odors stay in and once i killed the fruit flies that were attracted by the container i had before, the fruit flies stopped coming.

This is my go-to compost bin in my kitchen, plus it looks cute enough to set out on the counter. I’ve gone to many a friends house and seen a bucket for their chickens or compost and it doesn’t look pretty. I hope to one day be able to install this into a cabinet but for now it sits pretty up on my counter. I would have given it 5 stars but the plastic seal that goes on the lid has already been a bit of a headache to keep on. It falls off everytime i take the lid on or off and when i clean it, which is every day. This is a great item to have for those of you who compost.

My research indicated that, over time, every material type has its drawback when it comes to compost buckets: metals rust, ceramics crack, and plastics retain smells. This dual, 2-in 1, approach seems to sidestep all those issues. Plus, there are no carbon filters or little bags to bother with. It is easy to empty, and we’ve experienced no undue odors (or flies) even during summer. This bucket is small enough to tuck under the kitchen sink but large enough to last up to a week, so that emptying it coordinates well with other garbage chores.

Exaco Trading Co. CPBG 01 Exaco 2-in-1 Indoor Compost Bucket, 1 Gallon Green : So very happy with this little bucket. I had a different style previously- a ceramic one with a charcoal filter which i didn’t care for– heavy, and fruit flies could still get in and laid eggs around the filter– ew. This metal pail has a plastic bucket inside which lifts out, very easy to dispense. The lid is tight fitting too. I wish it were a tad bigger, but then again, it might take up too much counterspace. Looks nice on the counter as well.

When this cool little counter-top compost bucket arrived, it had a small crack in the bottom of the insert. In my haste, i didn’t make a phone call, but rather only read amazon’s return policy, and was disappointed when it appeared that i was going to have to pay return shipping. In this case, amazon’s return policy is not exaco trading’s return policy. Had i simply called exaco trading (877-760-8500 ext 701), like i finally did this morning, i would have not only received a new compost bucket shipped to me for free, but enjoyed a very pleasant conversation with andrew cook, vp of exaco trading.My previous negative post on my compost bucket?. These things are shipped to amazon in bulk, as many items are, and the only way we can be assured of getting a good product is by making sure we purchase from good companies like exaco, who are willing and ready to keep us, the customer, satisfied. The next time i see the company name exaco trading, i will know, that no matter what, i will be treated well when purchasing from them.

Actually adds to the look of the kitchen. The lid seals great, no smell, no mess, all good. I like the very small size too. I use the liners which are stretchy so it’s no mess at all.

The lid doesn’t fit that tight. It is easy to pull off with one hand while prepping veggies and fruits, so that is nice. It seals tight enough to prevent odors from escaping, but if you knock it over, the top will come off pretty easily. I like how the top does indeed seal, and you don’t have to worry about buying carbon filters. The inner bucket handle lies flat inside, but once when the bucket was full of water and soggy compost scraps, the handle popped off the bucket and the slop fell down all over my porch. Lesson learned, the inner bucket is not that sturdy, so don’t carry by the handle if it is heavy. The outer container is sturdy, on the other hand. So you are safe carrying that by the handles. It is cute, and can sit out and blend into your kitchen decor.

I use this compost container for my food scraps, coffee grounds, etc. It is the perfect size for the kitchen. I dump it in my outdoor compost bin about once a week. It is a nice metal, with a plastic removable liner that has a handle. The only negative remark is that the rubber piece around the lid occasionally slips off. Also there is never an odor using this compost bin.

Perfect size to sit on my counter– looks good, has a good seal so i rarely catch of whiff of what’s decomposing in there. I’ve been using it for about a year and it’s very solid, the paint still looks good. The first one i got had a dent– pretty big one. And the company replaced it quickly. The only thing i’d change is that the handle on the interior bucket falls off pretty regularly– not a deal breaker but this makes the handle a pretty useless feature.

I did not expect it to be that small haha. But its perfect size for a counter top. But its so cute and easy to use i dont care. If you are a serious composter, or have a big family and do a lot of cooking, id get a bigger one and one that was sturdier.

I received this and i thought it was kind of small. It seems to look smaller than a gallon-size to me. But i started to give it a try since the one i had was taking up too much space on my countertop. I’ve had it for 2 weeks now and i’m a single person who cooks every meal. It took me a week and a half to fill up the first time. I don’t have a composting bin to dump it into so i used compost in bags to put it into my regular trash chute. It doesn’t let any fruit flies in or smell out. It’s really easy to use just put the lining into the bucket pull it out tie the lining and throw it down the chute. I’m going to buy one of these as gifts for my family for christmas. I think every person needs one of these in their households.

This compost bucket is just as cute as it looks. Love the light olive color, it’s small enough that it can sit on your kitchen counter without looking awkward or conspicuous. I just started composting for the first time but live in an apartment, so wanted to start out small. My compost bin is out on my balcony and i just use this bucket to store my veggie/fruit scraps and eggshells before transporting them out to the balcony. That is all it should be used for, do not try and compost in this bucket. I’ve had it for 2 months now and no rusting, no loose handles. . Take care of the item and you will have no complaints.

Love this little compost pail. I’ve had pails with removable plastic liners and charcoal filtered lids and this pail and i much prefer this. I empty the little inside pail into my big outside composter when it gets full and that’s the end of the problem. I’m not using up compostable bags or having to deal with emptying and disposing of plastic bags like i was before. There is no charcoal filter to always be falling into the contents or turning moldy overnight. I liked it so much i got both my sister and my niece their own and they both love them. Now i’m buying another for my new home. Besides just being wonderfully functional, it’s cute. I can have it in my kitchen and it’s an addition, not an eyesore.

Rev-A-Shelf – 4WCSC-1835DM-2 – Double 35 Qt, Excellent product

 had the cheaper version of this model and liked it. But it wasn’t very sturdy.

Good quality product and gets a lot of use.

Very good quality and easy to install. Just follow the instructions step/step.

Very high quality build with dovetail joints, nice finish and smooth quick relase rails. The template/instructions that come with the hardware doesn’t really apply. The instructions you need are on the small page that is in one of the trashcans. It took me 10-15 minutes to figure out how it all works and about 15 minutes to install.

Incredibly well-built and works like a dream. Only drawbacks: 1) i couldn’t figure out which model would fit my cabinets (though, i e-mailed rev-a-shelf customer service with my cabinet measurements and was provided a list of compatible models within a few hours); 2) installation is not for the novice. Getting the tracks in was pretty easy, but attaching my existing cabinet door to the rev-a-shelf frame took quite some time to ensure it was properly centered. Total installation time: 1h 15m (as a pretty competent diyer with decent tools).

There were a few broken pieces that did not affect the functionality of the the installation nor the use of the product. My client is very pleased with the outcome. If you have a drawer above where this is going it is hard to use the rear trash can. Either to get it in and out or to use the enclosed lid. It comes with a template that ensures it is square.

I really like the cut outs for the cans to fit in. Makes cleaning up items that missed the actual garbage cans easy.

Comments from buyers

“Beautiful Custom Cabinet Look (DETAILED INSTALL VIDEO LINK INCLUDED)
, Well built drawer, good adjustments on the slides and face to get a perfect fit. But it’s meant only for OVERLAY doors, beware.
, Sturdy cabinet kit – recommended!

4 stars because it was a bit tricky to install. It took two people to install it. However, the convenience and the quality were worth the installation snafus. I wish we would have purchased this years ago. After using it for about 1 week i realized we needed to buy the motor to automate the open and close of it. After that week my fingers began to hurt opening it. I think if you have older people in your home, physically challenged, or small children, the automation is an essential add. We didn’t buy the motor on amazon. One person commented that the lost of trash space was worth it.

Well designed, excellent fit and finish, blumotion sliders are great, couldn’t be happier.

It took me about 1 hour to install. I found the video mentioned in other reviews to be of the most help as the instructions that come with the shelf are rather minimal. There is no mention of how to install the door. I found the best way was to measure the distance from the base of the cabinet to the bracket holes with the shelf in place and fully retracted. Using that measurement, mark the positions with horizontal lines on the back of the door. Then remove the shelf and place the door on a flat surface, front side facing down. Center the shelf over the door and attach the screws at the level of the horizontal lines. It came out perfect with no further adjustment required. I really like the action of the slide and especially the soft close. The most difficult part is the alignment of the door so i wanted to include what i did.

We bought this to replace the unit that came with our new cabinets. Set it in place and tighten 4 screws. Put the brackets on the shelf and slide it on. Mounting the door was a little bit harder but we found a video online which was a great help.

Lives up to the reviews i read before purchasing. The only improvement i have is that the instructions be written more clearly. Take your time when installing – measure twice, cut once – and you’ll have a smooth functioning hidden trash can that’s easy to use.

Difficult to install but works great once it’s in. We have been using it for about 9 months.

I want to rate this higher as i love it. As it came it wouldn’t support itself. I added two 2×4 on the side for support and then held and is working fine.

We had purchased another slide trash kit and it was rickety and difficult to install. This one has the gas-slides that slow down right before it closes and all the hardware is pre-assembled. It took about 5 minutes to install the drawer and another 5 minutes to put the cabinet face on. Comes with 2 large bins and the wood frame makes the whole unit very stable.

Finally, a well built product that works well. I was hesistant at first because of the price but when i opened the box and noticed how well it was constructed at the joints and the use of real wood i knew it would be good. Now that it’s installed i absolutely love this thing.

I bought this system to replace an older, less sturdy top mount rev-a-shelf system that lasted all of two years before the rails completely failed. With the rails mounted on the floor of the cabinet, i expect this to last a lot longer. Installation was fairly straightforward, though as others have mentioned, it is a little tricky to ensure that the cabinet front is lined up correctly. I found that having another person was helpful to line it up. The instructions say it should take about 15 min to install, but it took me about an hr and i’m pretty handy around the house. It works and looks great and i love the soft close feature.

Amazing quality and took no time to install. If you are handy with tools you should be able to install it in about 15 min. This unit is very durable and glides are perfect. The soft close works incredibly well unlike other units where sometimes the pullout stays a hair open. The self closures keep this closed.

The installation was somewhat difficult for my wife. The product is very solid and durable.

This pulls out smoothly and the soft close works great. It came with a lid for the front trash container, which we use for trash and we use the back bin for recycle. I followed the install video on rev-a-shelf’s website. Installing the glides and trash containers was very simple, but i turned over the drilling into the door for someone with more expertise. I’m very happy with this purchase.

Probably the most utilitarian thing i ever bought. Fits perfect in our remodeled kitchen. One for recyclables and the other for trash. Makes life easy for me since i’m the one responsible for curb-siding our trash twice per week.

The carcass of the drawer is very well built. Glued dovetail joints and with a wood divider between the two trash cans. I was surprised to see it was made in china. But sadly, that’s the nature of the world. The drawer slides are easy to install and the template provided is adequate — there’s a video on their website to watch if you want extra assurance on how to install the slide. The drawer slides are made in the usa. You can use fine adjustment levers on the drawer slides themselves to adjust the height within the frame (important for inset doors where it’s a game of millimeters). The one reason i didn’t give this 5 stars is that it’s for overlay cabinet doors. And nowhere in the description nor on the rev-a-shelf website does it mention that detail. I have inset doors which meant that i needed to set the whole unit back into the cabinet an extra 3/4′.

When we built our house 3 years ago, they installed a wire can holder that was very flimsy. It continually came apart (screws falling out) and was difficult to open and close. It is firmly attached to the door, so no pulling away. Just push it in, and it closes automatically, just like our drawers. It makes me happy every time i use it.

Great quality and easy to install.

I absolutely love this pull out trash can. I’m so glad we added this to the remodel of our kitchen. Took my husband about 30 minutes to install. It slides smoothly on the track and is really great quality.

We purchased this to replace an older system that fell apart. Our local hardware store quoted us $360 for a similar unit customized to fit our dimensions. I opted for this option at $188. The product was reasonably easy to install. My husband and i spent about an hour overall. The instructions were unclear for certain parts of the installation and gave little guidance on aligning the door to the product. But, with a little extra thought, installation is completely doable. The main downside is the (gray) bins that came with the unit are too tall for our cabinet. We were able to improvise with some shorter bins (red and brown) we already had around the house. I was also pleasantly surprised to learn it was a ‘soft-close’ system, so the drawer doesn’t slam shut.

Great product, very well build and easy to install. I would defiantly buy again.

Sooth operation and soft close is great.

Much cheaper than buying the cabinet with this pre-installed.

Had similar drawer in last house and had to have. Semi-easy install, mostly due to having a larger door/cabinet than this item intended for.

Paper template makes it easy to install. It has a ‘soft close’ mechanism.

 this turned out to be just what i was looking for. I turned a 20inch cabinet that was basically unused into this trash drawer. Before i installed, i watched the video below – it goes through step by step the whole process (shown in the video but not included in this product is an electric servo motor which opens the cabinet – just ignore that part as everything else in the video is accurate). If the video looks too complicated for you to handle yourself, it shouldn’t take a decent handy-man more than an hour or so to take care of it for you. Com/watch?v=mh9objqgwz8i would call this a 2 person job. One thing the video does not show is how you go about marking the door to be attached to the brackets. You want this to be level, so you might be intimidated by this step. I chose to use a stand-alone cabinet that was not connected to an adjacent cabinet as to keep the garbage as isolated as possible. The easiest thing i found to do was once the trash drawer was installed and working fine, my friend held the door in place for me to mark 2 of the bracket holes. Since this cabinet is a stand-alone cabinet (no access from an adjacent cabinet) i had to remove the drawer above the cabinet space, then reach in with a sharpie to mark the holes in line with the rev-a-shelf brackets. The best part about the bracket system is that they are adjustable horizontally – watch the youtube video, it will make sense. You will also notice in my photos that i had to cut a 2×4 and install into the base of the cabinet to raise the level of the bracket a bit. For the slide system to work, it needs to be placed at the same level as the front lip of the cabinet.

This product really solved a problem for our household. After researching different options i felt this one was the best for our kitchen. Very sturdy and the install was pretty straight forward. It comes with a template and instructions that are easy to follow. My only complaint is the second trash can in the back hardly comes totally outside the cabinet frame which restricts the use of the recycle top that comes with purchase. If you intend on using the recycle top for one of the trash cans it has to be the front trash can. Overall very happy with the product and install was smooth.

Everything was great and easy but i gave 4 stars for 2 reasons. I had to look up the video at rev a shelf website. 2 installation of the pantry door to the rev a shelf wasn’t efficient. There has to be a better way to install it.

The garbage is great, high quality. I gave it 3 stars for a couple reasons. It is not a 15 minute install. Also, the template is for doors that are flush against the cabinet. If they set in at all you need to adjust.

I use my rollout to store dog food, it easily holds 105 pounds with room to spare and does not stress the undercount slides. Wish i had these undercount slides in all my drawers, very smooth.

Nice looking, easy to install, keeps trash out of the way.

Food Cycle Science Food Cycler Platinum Indoor Food Recycler and Kitchen Compost Container – So far, so good

Not only does this amazing machines look sleek, stylish and fit on a counter perfectly it also is nearly unnoticeable in the sound and smell that it produces. I grew up with a parent who always encouraged the use of food scrap as compost; each year the home garden was vibrant and produced robust yields of all natural veggies & fruits. The catch to this was – stinky containers that often made some of the kitchen space reach of decomposing scraps; even with tossing the scraps into a pile once the container was full. *point being, i needed a way to produce nutrient rich compost in my home without the rank stench and unsightly view of a compost container on my counter. My problem was solved with this highly efficient food processor. I can tell as to how this product was crafted that it will last for years to come. I can’t wait to use this compost to feed my garden-small load-drying time: +/- 40 mingrinding time: +/- 2hr 20min total fp time: 3hr 30mincooling time: +/- 20 min.

I love the concept and the way this device works, when it’s working. I had one that quit turning. New unit quit heating after a few months. It was replaced on warranty, though it cost me $75 to ship the old one back to them. Within 6 months, the replacement model quit advancing through the cycles–got stuck on grinding– so i hooked it up to a timed outlet and used it for initial processing, then baked the output on low heat in my toaster oven and finally ground the material in a dry jar for my vitamix. After nearly a year of doing that, i got bold enough to try again. It’s such a good idea, but spotty on reliability. Also, support is not easy to reach. Phone calls never answered, messages rarely returned.

Works great, no smell, easy to use. I had a few issues with the cycle not completed, often requiring a soak and some manually gunk removal but i was putting too much in at one time. The run time is long, seems to be 4-6 hours so i worry a little about the power consumption. It appears to use between 90-150 watts throughout the process. Definitely make sure it fits in your kitchen, that’s where you’ll want to keep it. It’s no louder than your dishwasher at it’s quietest. If the cycle doesn’t complete, toss the results. Mold seems to form around it when i put it in my garden.

I was looking for something that would mince the kitchen scraps before putting into the compost and came across the food cycler. I purchased it with my birthday gift cards as a gift to myself. The bucket only holds part of out food waste so, we do batches. It seems to work well and it is very quiet and orderless. In theory, i could put the food cycled remains directly on the garden. In practice, i have dogs that would happily eat the dried remnants. So, into the compost it goes to age.

I love the machine- it turns all the food waste into powder like/ almost the consistency of coffee grounds. So easy to use and i feel like i’m doing my part to reduce waste and fertilize my garden a little bit at the same time.

We receive this huge package, opened it and it was a very well put together and very well packed grinder. I must say it works very well, some sweet peelings like peaches take a little longer to process. However overall i got rid of a lot of fruit flies. Plus we have no garbage disposal and this is reducing our trash.

  • Saving the money and the world, one bucket of scraps at a time!
  • Expensive, yes, but amazing!
  • Not real compost but works.

This is a must have for busy folks like me who also hate to see food scraps go in the trash. I have placed this in my garage and carry the food scraps there, let it run overnight and the dry compost is ready in the morning. Over the weekends, i run it a couple of times. The bags of trash we threw in the trash bins has reduced at least by 50%. Note that this does create the traditional compost but does not create a dry, somewhat granular, output which is good enough for me. I am using it for the plants indoors and saving some for spring. ———-updating my review after almost a year of limited use. The output produced by this machine starts turning green after you put water in it. The “compost” i put in the plants turned green algae like substance in the pot which was gross.

First of all, don’t expect this device to fit easily on your kitchen counter. You will find you need to run a cycle twice depending upon what you’re composting. But i have half a five gallon bucket filled with beautifully crumbled and completely dry compost. The filters do a great job of keeping the smells from being unpleasant. The price point is up there, but this thing delivers.

I have been filling my kitchen composted every day and running at night. Each morning it is exciting to open it up and see what goodies i’ve made for my indoor and outdoor plants. It seems something silly to get excited about, but all i eat is fresh food and have a lot to compost. So without this and the ability of compost outside right now where i love, i would not be a happy camper. I have already recommended it to people i know would also love to have one. The price seems high, but for me, composting is a small part of saving the world, and it’s a small price to buy to be able to contribute to a cause i really believe in.

Update 10/19/18 – i heard back from food cycler and i am happy to say that customer service is replacing my faulty unit. I was very happy with my unit for 6 months, as it did exactly what it described it would. It turns my kitchen scraps into compost in 3-6 hours. Once i review the replacement unit, i would be happy to update to 5 stars. Update 11/13/18 – i am happy to say that customer service came through. I have a brand new food cycler, replacing a faulty unit. I am back to composting, just finished my third load. I tossed a big bucket of compost on my wintering garden.

I have had a worm bin for ~1. 5 years now, which does an amazing job breaking down my kitchen scraps. Unfortunately, i’m not able to put my meat, eggs, dairy waste etc directly in the worm bin. It either doesn’t break down well (eggshells, bones), or causes smells/attracts rodents (meat, dairy, etc). So i’ve been forced to throw it all in the trash as we don’t have municipal compost available. I can put almost everything in the food cycler, and it breaks it right down. Because of the high temps and ground down texture, i can either add this to my worm bin, or directly to the garden soil. I run mine almost every night.

Food Cycler Platinum Indoor Kitchen Composter – Easy to Use Food Composter with No Water, Chemicals, Venting or Draining Required

In as little as three hours, the FoodCycler food recycler takes your kitchen scraps, reduces them by up to 90% and creates a highly mature, nutrient-rich soil amendment that’s ideal for making your garden grow. Just toss in your food waste, and push go. No pellets, enzymes or additives needed. When it’s done, you have a powerful fertilizer you can use in your outdoor gardens and a removable, dishwasher safe bucket you can easily wash.  

Our food recycler is odourless and lightweight, so it can work its magic anywhere. And unlike colossal landfills or a backyard compost pile, it’s not an eyesore and won’t attract scavengers.

Perhaps best of all, the FoodCycler helps reduce methane gas emissions – and saves you money in the process. After all, not only is tossing your cookies a waste of your hard-earned cash, but food waste is also a well-spring of harmful greenhouse gases.

In a few simple steps, the FoodCycler will help beautify your garden and the planet. From start to finish, the whole process takes less time than it takes to defrost a chicken.

Works With:

Food Cycler can accept a large variety of foods including:

  • Beans, Seeds & Legumes
  • Cereals & Grains
  • Cheese
  • Coffe Grounds, Filters & Tea Bags
  • Eggs + Egg Shells
  • Fruit & Vegetable Scraps
  • Meat, Fish, Shellfish & Poultry Scraps

About Food Cycle Science

​Food Cycle Science is the brainchild of three visionary entrepreneurs who decided to bring green technology to the growing problem of food waste disposal. Food Cycle Science’s technology is designed to make the composting process easier and quicker, thus greatly reducing the 70 million+ tons of food waste added to landfills each year.  This technology serves a broad range of industries in North America and throughout the world. We invite you to join the growing number of customers who have discovered the advantages of this cost-effective, environmental solution.

Here is How It Works:

Step 1 Scrape leftover food – cooked and uncooked – right into the removable waste bucket. The Food Cycler Home will even compost bones, pits, shells, meat, and citrus rinds.

Step 2 Place the bucket inside the main unit, lock the lid, and begin processing. Agitators quietly break down the food waste into small particles, while it is heated, decomposing and sterilizing the by-product entirely. The unique carbon filter filtration system eliminates the odor completely, allowing for indoor use. The unit will automatically shut off.​

Step 3 Once processing is complete, the unit will automatically shut off. At this point you can empty the contents directly into your garden or spread onto your lawn.

The bucket is heavy and obviously very high-quality. It works as advertised every time. I put a huge watermelon rind in it and other things as well and it completely shredded it. I can’t wait to see what it does for the garden next year. I highly, highly recommend it.

The food cycler platinum is the ideal compromise between discarding food waste and maintaining a traditional compost pile. Food waste, including things like chicken bones, is dried and ground to make a uniform mulch with about 10% of the volume of the original. The removable cast iron bucket holds a couple of quarts of material. Processing takes from 3 to 5 hours depending on how moist the contents are. I’ve now processed half-a-dozen batches containing everything from coffee grounds to raw vegetable waste to nearly a quart of over-ripe strawberries. It all comes out ready to put on the garden. The results have fully met my expectations: we now put no waste at all down the garbage disposal and hardly anything other than paper in the trash. Well, the fan is a tad noisy while the drying cycle is running, and there is a slight odor in spite of dual charcoal filters. The smell is not unpleasant, just a vague vegetable-like aroma.

This is a great product for easy composting. Because it was too tall to fit under our cabinets on the counter easily, we put it just outside the kitchen door that leads to the garage, perfect place. I also put a small kitchen compost bin on the counter and when that is near full i transfer it all to the food cycler and run it. I highly recommend this product. A lot less smelly trash and my plants are happy. So far we are very happy with this purchase. I have never been one to have an outdoor compost pile, so this is my first effort at recycling food scraps.

I love it and i use it daily, but it hasn’t been doing a very good job grinding the dried food which has lead to rats digging through my plants after i’ve tilled the bits into the soil. Started using it the house and now it’s stinking up the whole house.

I am very glad that i bought one. I highly recommend this product for those who want to do indoor compositing with no mess and who care the landfills from food waste.

Love the concept and how it works. My trash is 1/5 of what it used to be and i am collecting the “composted” food for the spring. I have had this unit for two weeks and hum with happiness every time i empty it.

NEW AND IMPROVED – Now with Filter Monitoring System –

This product has cut our household waste by over 75%; instead of taking out the trash 2x / week, we now take it out every two weeks. I credit this device for reducing our waste. As other reviews have stated, the food cycler grinds and dries the food scraps, turning them into a find, earth-like material that my husband and i spread over our lawn and in the garden in the warmer months of the year. The food cycler accepts all food scraps. The bucket that does the grinding holds about half of what my compost bin collects, so i need to run the cycler at least 2x/ day in order to keep up with our household’s output. As a result, i would consider us heavy users. We run our cycler in our garage. The result of the 3-hour process is stickier if what goes in is moist. As stated in previous reviews, when this happens, i sometimes have to scrape out the bucket. It also helps to run the cycler twice when this happens, and the results are much drier.

I like this for composting veggie scraps. The only thing i don’t like is that it needs to soak to get the crusted stuff off after running a composting cycle, depending on the scraps. That is pretty simple to do and other than that, it is awesome.

It takes way longer than the 3-5 hour window in the brochure. Also, the advice that one not put in overly starchy foods should be in the ad, not tucked away in the instructions. Several times, my ‘load’ didn’t really dry out and as such, it smells strongly of the original food (onions, mostly), so i had to let it dry on trays before putting it outside in my plants for fear it would attract vermin.

I’m writing this review after many months of use, so the fact that i’ve been using it is a recommendation of sorts. The filters don’t last very long and i’ve refused to replace them because of the expense. Good thing i keep the machine in the basement because it does smell when operating. The other major complaint i have is that there’s a pretty limited range of what you can put in the recycler without the contents getting all balled up and stuck after processing. It takes major soaking and/or stabbing at the contents to empty it. Overall, i’m don’t regret buying it – just wish the aforementioned problems weren’t an issue.

We are a couple of “kitchen active “older adults interested in a “recycle, reuse, repurpose” lifestyle. We bought this product about 3 weeks ago. We cycle kitchen scraps and leftovers through it a couple of times a week. It does what it is promoted to do. We have 2 gallons of recycled material to date. Buy this with confidence that it will perform as advertised.

Every evening we have enough scraps to run it through. In the morning i deposit this lovely compost at the base of one or more of our plants.

All in one food composter makes composting kitchen waste a snap.

We just got it four days ago and have used it a couple times now. It does a great job breaking down food waste into usable compost in a short amount of time. It chew through the watermelon rind we put in there (did pre-cut it into smaller pieces). There are some things they don’t recommend putting in there: strong bones (cow), nuts, avocado and other fruit pits. Still don’t know if it will handle a corn cob, but hope so. It’s quiet (not noiseless, but no worse than our dishwasher or fridge when running), doesn’t stink, and the dry compost is also not stinky. There are some bits that stick to the side of the can, but it’s to be expected. Just run it again and it’ll come off. Just don’t expect it to come out clean like new.

So happy that we purchased this. Living in an apartment with no compost options was making us miserable, as we eat lots of fresh veggies and fruits, and wanted a way to use the good scraps. The food cycler is a perfect solution, our house plants and herb garden on the balcony are very happy with all the added nutrition. Overall we have found the cycler to be fairly quiet and scent free. Our filters lasted three months before needing to be replaced, which was great (we run the cycler at least twice per day).

Kitchen Compost Shredder Composts to a viable soil amendment in less than 3 hours

Odorless and environmentally conscious kitchen compost container

United Solutions TB0010 Rough and Rugged Rectangular 34 Gallon Wheeled Outdoor Trash Can, Good Product. Great Price.

Bought this for our 4 person small home for weekly trash pickup. Great reviews led me to buy and so far so good. Wheels roll well and like the handle feature. However, the lid is not on a hinge. It is one that had to be picked up and put aside. Not a big deal, but something to note.

I constantly have an issue with losing my trash can lid or having the garbage men throw it away :/ the lid on this isnt attached but it does snap down on firmly so i havent had an issue with that yet. The wheels are awesome (makes my garbage night much easier) and moves easily without problems and the handle helps. The size of this has to be my favorite part. Its big enough to fit about 3 full kitchen sized trash bags inside and still be able to close the lid but its not too big that the garbage men wont take my trash. I live in a city so we have restrictions on size. I would buy this all over again and will probably buy a second one just because i like it.

Good garbage can, with a good lid. The wheels make it easier to empty and transport. Large size, but not too wide. I like that it is taller rather than wider, so that it can fit more easily in many kinds of spaces. Much better than a round and wider can which i had before which had been too bulky. This can is much more convenient. And the price was very reasonable. The more i use it, the more i like it. The wheels make it easy to transport garbage from upstairs kitchen to downstairs larger garbage container and it is light enough to carry with ease, yet sturdy enough to handle being hauled around.

This is a nice little trash bin. It’s no so big that i have trouble moving it (i’m 5′ tall, female). It rolls easily and holds a week’s garbage with some room to spare. It’s good quality plastic and should last quite a while.

Ordered two, one can came square, one was round which was strange. Didn’t bother to send back the round. The round lid fits perfectly, the square lid doesn’t seal closed. Since i purchased these for outside the lid not fitting right makes one kinda useless for trash as critters can easily get in it.

(review is for the square version) paid $25solid and inexpensive, does the job well. The plastic is thick enough and doesn’t bend, enough that it doesn’t feel cheap (the lid feels kinda cheap though, but not effecting functionality, fits on tight and stays on). Stable enough that as long as there’s something in it, it wont have a chance to fall over. Otherwise if empty just putting it against something will stop it from tipping from wind. Someone got the package before me, so i can’t say for sure if it was missing the plug for the lid or not, just used a strip of duct tape instead. I expected a ‘cheap’ product for the price from previous reviews, seems some people have their expectations too high.

I hate how expensive trash cans can be. How frustrating to pay a lot of money to hold garbage. These cans are perfect for me, though. For what they cost, they are perfectly adequate – they hold garbage, roll, and do garbage can things like a garbage can should. I don’t expect them to last 30 years, but they are decent quality. For the average user in a suburban environment, these cans will do their job just fine. They’ve made it through two michigan winters so far and are none the worse for wear. They are pretty lightweight, so i would recommend using decals or spray-paint to put your address on them in case of high winds (which i would think is a good idea for any can).

Comments from buyers

“Unstable
, You can put your garbage in this thing
, United Solutions TB0010 Rough and Rugged

This product works fine, however, it doesn’t work for us. I wish we had a bigger trash can. This can is filled and overflowing by the time trash day arrives. It is probably 50%, maybe 75% of the size of one of the trash cans that the city typically provides for trash pick-up. So if you ever fill those up, this probably isn’t for you. Get a bigger one, just in case. My actual complaint, though, is that i find the lid to be difficult to put on and off securely. Maybe i’m not strong enough or my hands are too flimsy with the lid handles, but sometimes when the lid is on securely, it’s really hard to pull off without sticking my fingers under the lid and prying it off (and who wants to get that close and personal with their trash can?). Also, even when the lid is on ‘securely’ roaches can still enter it through the cracks. In hindsight, i’d likely just purchase a trash can from the county, one with a flip lid, so that it easily opened and closed and had a fairly secure seal to keep the roaches out.

Only ‘okay’ because it’s so very small. I guess i didn’t understand the sizing; it holds two, maybe three, tall kitchen garbage bags which are somewhat full.

Nice size, easy to move which is what i needed. Lid us very snug which is a blessing and a curse. The can is lightweight so when taking the lid off it tends to tip. I don’t hate it but is try a somewhat heavier one next time to avoid the tipping.

Works well to use large yard waste bags in. I wish there was a different handle to use when using the wheels because the hinged handle makes it try to stand up straight, causing it to drag rather than roll.

It’s the night before garbage day. Your wife yells you at you ‘take out the garbage, you lazy bum’. Then you’re all, ‘hey ohhh, lay off me’, then you can’t put up w/ it anymore so you take out the garbage. And you’re all ‘hey how you doin’. Put the stuff in, roll it out, go back and watch reruns of mr.

These are mid-sized garbage cans, not the behemoths most of us use for weekly trash pickup. That being said, i purchased these for a ‘water collection’ emergency on my patio (i have a new run off problem which can only be corrected by a little construction and these cans will serve as a stop gap solutions to prevent flooding back toward my patio grilling area until permits are issued and the contractor can start work on my place). They are easy to wheel when full which is what i wanted so that i can dump run off water into a banana patch or my pool then put these back in place for the next fl afternoon monsoonal downpour. On the other hand, the lids are beyond useless (they don’t fit) which isn’t an issue for my usage but would be for someone who wants to use these as actual outdoor garbage receptacles. Be wary of price if you are going to buy these. They’ve gone down by $8 in a week since my purchase. Maybe put them in your list and if you really want them, pounce when prices go down a little more.

Wheels on trashcans are always great. Isn’t the biggest trashcan out there but i knew that before purchasing because i read the description. The handle pulled up locks the lid on and to unlock and release the lid you just snap the handle down and lift the lid up. I was afraid that the trash men wouldn’t figure it out but they did. The lid fits on very securely so it’s not even necessary to lock the lid. Doesn’t blow over when windy outside. Yet light-weight so even if it didn’t have wheels it’s easy to lift up or carry. I plan on getting another one for gardening.

You get what you pay for here. It’s a decent, cheap fix for light weight trash items but it’s not heavy duty by any means. It’s super awkward, like top heavy or something, and there’s only 1 handle. Don’t expect to have this 1 for long term but it’s easy to clean out & holds quite a bit.

I know this seems minor but the cover was missing the plug for the hole. Seeing as the next 10 days forecast rain for this area it guarantees it will be taking on water.

Does what it needs to do but very light weight. I do not think it will hold up very long. Also we are a family of 4 and if i miss 1 trash pick up during the week ( we have 2 ) the trash can is over flowing. I also think the handle sucks, as you use it to pull can down driveway the handle doesn’t lock in place so it is always moving around making it hand to keep can on its wheels.

Several low marks were given to this product because the product was flimsy in the wind, the lid didn’t fit just right, or the wheels came off easily. That’s not been my experience. I’ve been using one of these outside for several years, and it works just fine. Except the top, which is worthless. I will buy another one when the day comes, and recommend to you to buy one if you haven’t ever had one. Besides, if you want a really good, commercial grade trash can this size, you’re going to pay a lot of money, well over 100 bucks.

This isn’t a very sturdy garbage bin, but you get what you pay for. It probably won’t last long, but my garbage guys are so rough on my bins, they break them no matter how much they cost, so i’d rather not lose money when they will inevitably break. My lid isn’t easy to put on, but it did stay in place after the handle was latched. It has survived a month of trash days thus far and still has both wheels, the lid, and the handle, which is a miracleupdate: still in good condition after several months of use.

The can is a very flimsy plastic, much more flimsy than what you would find on a plastic storage bin. The weight is awkward, so it falls over easily. Light duty and smaller than it appears in the picture. The plastic has significant imperfections, as if it dripped after the hot plastic was poured into the mold. If i had been shopping at a store and saw this, i would have passed it by. It will serve my purpose, so i’ll keep it, but i know i’ll be replacing it soon. It’s not going to last long. When i do replace it, i’ll go to a brick-and-mortar store to make sure i get something decent, even if i have to pay twice the price.

It’s light and could blow over under the right wind. But being light is also an advantage depending on where it’s stored and how easy it is to heft. The lid isn’t always easy to put on, since it’s cheap plastic and can easily be misshapen like other reviewers have noted. All in all, it’s not great, but it’s not terrible. It certainly does the job of holding trash on the curb, as long as you don’t live near large predatory pests, or in an environment with gale-force winds.

I would not call these rough and rugged or recommend them for more than a 2 person household. I have not had any issues with the wheels to date but i’m also being careful to not put a lot of weighty items into them. They also don’t seem to have much balance so if you don’t load them right they fall over quite easily. They did arrive quickly and in perfect condition, so i’m giving some credit for the speedy service.

I will make use of them for interim yard waste collection as planned, but they are very unstable. Too tall for the tiny footprint perhaps, but also they just are not steady standing. A very light breeze (or nothing) knocks them over. I bought 4 at once and leaned them all into each other to hopefully support them all when they were delivered. Next morning they were all flat out in the driveway, so many dominoes dumped over. Then i placed them each around the yard for green waste collection. Later in the day they are again all fallen over. I filled one hoping that would make it more secure, it did not. The wheels work fine, material is sufficiently sturdy, the lid is secure, i just wish they were more stable, i will have to figure out a way to stabilize.
