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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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