Premium Quality Stainless Steel Compost Bin 1 : Heavy stainless pail that can be scrubbed out cleanly

After two weeks of fighting fruit flies i had to stop using it but i do like it. The only thing i don’t like, other than fruit flies, is the top is a little hard to get off of it.

If you have pets i know you’ll love it. I am extremely happy with this beautiful stainless steel compost bin. Mine is placed on the floor near the back door and we have several dogs, one of which is a ‘compost frequenter. ‘ this bin with it’s filtered cover has absolutely no attraction to her. That in itself makes it priceless but its sleek, easy to clean surface complete with handle makes it an item that will remain beautifully accenting my kitchen for many years. 3 gallons makes it possible to leave it sit for almost a week in my kitchen before i fill it an run it to the outdoor compost pile. I don’t know how long the filter lasts but it came with an extra one and you can buy more easily.

All that glitters is not gold. Item is a stunningly beautiful, brushed, stainless steel that has a nice solid ‘weight’ to it. I would give it a 5+++ on appearance and feel. Actual usefulness (to me) is another story. The lid closes down on the bucket with a nice, solid ‘thwump’ that let’s you know that nothing is going to creep in around that lid. Just know, however, that it will take you both hands to get it open – which is kind of hard if you are holding kitchen compost (eggshells?) in one of those hands. You will have to lay the whatever down and use both hands. In fact, it is really best to plan on wrapping your whole arm around the bucket, and pulling the lid off with the other hand, firmly. Despite the solidity of the lid/bucket construction, however, the real problem comes from the holes in the top of the lid (readily apparent in the picture). Despite a nice, filter fitted around the inside lip of the lid (removed, washed, and re-inserted with great difficulty.

Sleek and pretty and ‘not gross like the bowl, mom’. I’ve held off getting a high quality compost bin for years. Glass bowls, plastic containers that are about to be tossed, a plate. All of these items have been used in the past to hold my kitchen scraps. Finally, after dealing with the hated fruit flies this august, we decided to break down and purchase an actual compost bin. It’s gorgeous and feels pretty substantial when i pick it up. We have a much-beloved but often irksome cat who loves to knock things off the counters and i think she’ll struggle with this one. It’s not excessively heavy, but it’s substantial enough to thwart her efforts. There is no compost smell with this bin, and the fruit flies are much improved. I have still seen some inside the bin, but we have probably 85% fewer fruit flies now and those can be taken care of by some apple cider vinegar/dish soap traps.

Good quality, nice looking compost bin for the kitchen. I have got a large earth machine composter that sits in the back yard. I bought this bin about a couple of weeks ago. This small bin works well for collecting collecting food scraps in the kitchen for 2-3 days between trips to the outdoor bin. The bin seems to durable (non-flimsy), has a nice polished look to it and has worked well to keep bad odors at bay. I was realy pleased about the last part. I use compostible 3 gallon bin liners for convenience.

Premium Quality Stainless Steel Compost Bin 1.3 Gallon, Includes Charcoal Filter : Great as long as the seams hold. The bin’s simple stainless steel design is sleek & attractive. It’s a great size to sit on our 6″ kitchen window sill with only a little over 1″ hanging off & it’s very well weighted so it stays in place without any danger of tipping over or falling off. It will hold at least a week of our kitchen scraps in a 2 person household & the charcoal filter is amazing for knocking out all smell. The inside of the can is very smooth so it’s easy to rinse out any residue. I only have three cons but they aren’t deal breakers. One, the biggest one, is that the seams on the bottom of the can are visible & though it seems well crafted, i’m a bit concerned it may end up leaking over time. That could just be paranoia from prior experiences though, so i’ll try to update in 6 months or immediately if it starts to leak. Secondly, the finish does show water splashes & finger prints a bit so i have to wipe it down thoroughly every couple days to keep it looking nice. And lastly, if the bin gets too full it starts to press up into the charcoal filter in the lid so it gets it kind of grimy & can even push it out of its slot if you keep pushing the lid on when the bin is full.

Heavy stainless pail that can be scrubbed out cleanly. We received a plastic lined garbage pail a few years ago as a gift. No matter how you scrub it it smells almost immediately after it has been emptied and cleaned. Baking soda helped a little. Stainless was the obvious solution. I told my wife to leave the peelings, etc. In a bowl next to this bin and i place them in this garbage pail when i wash the dishes. (you shouldn’t be handling a garbage pail at all when cooking, even to press the pedal which opens the lid. ) a poly liner isn’t a solution; we’d just have a stinky bag until the trash is incinerated. I haven’t scrubbed this yet; i’ll update it when i do.

It has a very classy and sleek bright stainless steel finish and feels solid. The lid closes very tight, especially after putting in the bio-degradable compost bags. So be careful when opening it up. If you pull too hard you might end up wearing your compostable food scraps. I gave this five stars because i am very impressed with the quality of the product. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to compost but not wanting to have a plastic bag of stinky scraps hanging from their back door. The lid has a filter in it and does a fine job.
