I have needed something like this for a long long time. It looks nice sitting on the counter too. No my little fruit flies is a huge plus.
Handy in the kitchen and takes up little counter space.
Updated review: i took a chance and ordered a replacement since the first one was damaged on delivery. The replacement arrived next day (thank you amazon) and was undamaged. On this one, the lid could be properly & easily used. Both the charcoal filter and the bonus spare filter were stored inside the filter holder, although it seems odd (and a bit cheap) that while the filter is round and matches the circumference of the lid, the spare filter was just a small square shape. Having both filters the full round size would’ve earned 5 stars. I’ve used the container now for a couple of weeks and love it. The size is much larger than my old one which means fewer trips to the outside compost to empty it. What i like most about this container is the filtered ventilation. My old container was just a stainless bin with a tight fitting lid. The vegetable trimmings that went in would start anaerobic decomposition, getting slimy, moldy and smelly after just a few days.

Comments from buyers
“Absolutely love this, I’m pretty terrible about taking my compost out when I should, Kind of disappointed, but it is a huge compost pail and “
I have been impressed with this quality is top notch. I can go a week or more before taking it to the flower bed. No odor and looks great on the cabinet.
Larger than expect but perfect. We have been composting for a number of years and we were using old plastic coffee containers. This looks great on my kitchen counter and holds enough so we are running back and forth to the compost. The only improvement i would like to see made, is an easy way of putting in the charcoal filters. We haven’t had to change them yet, but i have read the other reviews and the questions about the product and it seems a little weird. I am sure i will figure it out.
I like it, can’t say i am crazy about it, for the simple reason that i can’t see the need for the holes, it isn’t that big that you won’t have to empty it almost daily, so there is no smell developing. Eventually you need to buy new filters to block out those holes and that’s just another thing to think about and buy.
Very happy with this purchase. The container is a great size and doesn’t look out of place on a kitchen counter. The lid fits well and the shape of the container makes removing the contents easy. We use compostable bags with the container and could’t be happier.
Got a for a little less than the other identical bins out there. Looks good and matched the kitchen decor. A little bigger than i thought but i found a good spot for it nonetheless.
This is exactly what i was looking for as a counter top composter. Large enough to hold quite a bit of refuse, but not so large as to overwhelm the kitchen counter. The in-lid carbon filter is great, too.
I’m impressed with how nice this compost bucket is. Good quality stainless steel, fairly heavy. Matches stainless kitchen appliances well. Very pleased, highly recommend this.
A great addition to your kitchen that blends in with sinks and appliances.
Came with scratches and only one filter. Kind of disappointed, but it is a huge compost pail and is in fact stainless steel. If it came new (not scratched) with two filters as described, i’d say five stars.
Attractive sitting on my counter; big enough to hold a lot of scraps but not so big as to be obtrusive. Contains all odors very well.
Way easy to clean, holds a lot. Keeps the smell out of the kitchen. Handle is stable and long enough for carrying to the outside compost pile.
This is a very nice product. The steel is a good weight and it is nice looking. It is a good size for me because i don’t have to empty it a lot since it’s just me. I am curious how well the filters will work in the heat of the summer, though.This year, the fruit flies were crazy in my kitchen without the compost.
Have had this for a few weeks now, so far, so good. I had a ceramic one previously with an i smooth interior which would catch food constantly and became a breeding ground for fruit flies no matter how many times i washed it. Thankfully this looks like it will avoid that problem. Nice color, doesn’t get fingerprints.
This temp mulch container is exactly what we were looking for. It is handy and good looking to find its place on the kitchen counter. The lid with charcoal filters eliminate the smell of the mulch that hasn’t been transferred to the large mulch pile/container and the gnats are gone.
Although i do not use it for composting, i absolutely love this item because i do not normally put out a large amount of waste so the larger trash cans do not work for the household. This is a great addition to the kitchen.
My compsting wife could not be happier. Looks much better on our counter, too, than the old plastic one. Charcoal filter really works well, too.
Hey, it’s a stainless steel bucket. Actually, the odor filter does work — it sits in the counter til it’s full and then it’s carried out, no issues with odor.
Fits on counter and is aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
I’ve been using this for almost 2 years and still love it – cute, clean, handy & sturdy.
Beautiful addition to kitchen. The charcoal feature which i really didn’t want actually seems to work.
