Vremi Kitchen Compost Bin – Worth every penny!

Varying angles to choose from, little arms to hold the pages open, nice stylish wood material. As a nursing student who constantly has her nose in a book, this is a life-saver. I wish i had gotten one of these a year ago.

It holds a lot, i but vegetable peels and coffee grounds in it for my compost. It is cute the handle works carrying it to and fro the compost bin. Oh and i saw one at bed bath and beyond for nearly twice the price last week.

What an attractive compost bin. Nicely constructed, built to last. Very pleased with my purchase.

Our county started collecting scraps for compost, so we needed a way to gather things that didn’t make the place smell. This little can is unobtrusive and does the trick. The carbon filter makes sure that even if it takes us a couple of days to fill it that we don’t smell anything. It does come with one replacement filter. I probably should have gotten the white color, but the black is also fine.

I would love more instructions. Might have missed that, the package was beautiful and the bit is a great construction. My kiddos have helped us learn the dos and don’ts of compost for our garden.

  • Nice beautiful compost bin
  • I choose glossy black and i am very happy with this product
  • Not as great as it could be

Perfect fit in my medium sized kitchen.

I bought one of these bins for me and one as a gift. The bin is really sturdy and pretty. I strongly recommend using a bag as a liner, it will make it easier when handling the fruit peels and other stuff. In order to avoid fruit flies and other pests you must keep the filters on (the ones included with the bin) and understand that this bin is only to collect your compostable rubbish before you take it to the actual compost pile or bin outside.

I have been without one for a while and am so glad i got this one. It’s perfect for my countertop and easy to keep clean.

We brought this to keep used coffee grounds in right next to the coffee pot. It holds quite a few basketfuls and then we can just take it right out to the garden.

We had used a rectangular container about the same size with a locking lid prior. I like that this has a smaller foot print, but still seems to hold about as much compost. I actually prefer the non-locking lid on this, as i’ve often got dirty hands when i’m trying to get at this. The charcoal filter has done an awesome job of containing any smells so far (going on a month now). All in all, it’s easy to clean, easy to access, made of quality parts, and does what it’s made for.

This item holds a good amount of kitchen scraps and is attractive and lightweight.

We had been using an empty plastic ice cream container to hold our food scraps and kept it under the sink. The house we moved into doesn’t have much under sink storage. I searched for a container to keep on the counter that was stylish and affordable. I like that it’s stainless steel and lightweight. So you don’t have to make numerous trips to the compost bin to empty it. Just an fyi: it came in a box so it could be given as a gift.

Blends in well – great compost bin.

This bin is really nicely made and very pretty too. Comes with an extra set of filters as well.

Been through several over the years, this one is perfect. Large capacity, attractive for kitchen countertop, stainless steel so no odors like the ones with plastic inserts. Best of all the lid keeps all odors in but only takes one hand to remove.

I wish i would have bought this years ago.

COMPOST BIN FOR KITCHEN COUNTER –

Extremely satisfied with this item. Well made stronge stainless steel. Not the cheap metal kind, also comes with an extra set of filters. I purchased compost bags for it and they fit perfectly inside. I tried plastic compost bins and i hated it. This also fits great under the sink.

I choose glossy black and i am very happy with this product. The lid forms a tight seal and has several layers of filters to stop the odors from escaping. Kit comes with spare filters. Bugs do not seem to find the bin either. The depth of the container is impressive. See the photo i have attached. Hope this review is helpful.

I’m really excited to start composting with this product. When it arrived, i was very impressed by the quality of the compost bin itself. It was also really nice that it came with extra filters. I’ve started adding waste to it this week and so far i haven’t noticed any smell at all. Love that it fits right under my kitchen sink too.

Have had many types of compost and this is the best. No fruit flies and a carbon filter with enough weight not to slip or tilt. Bought this when we redid the kitchen and we’ll worth it.

This vremi compost bin is perfect for a kitchen. We keep ours under the sink. It has a small footprint and isn’t too tall. The bottom of the bin is made of thick metal. The top is easy to get on and off. I love the handle because it makes the bin easy to pick up and carry. It has been very warm out lately and the charcoal filter keeps the smell inside the can. The filter is washable and it came with a replacement filter. This will hold over a week worth of food scraps. The added bonus is the ability to put the bottom in the dishwasher for easy cleaning.

We always compost our kitchen waste. For years, we have used a small trash can, a bucket, a bowl as counter compost bin. Since we go through a lot of veggies that the compost need to be bring out pretty often. That we never really have to deal with the odor problem. First, this bin is very sturdy. The coating is beautiful and shinning. Which would save you the counter space.

CHARCOAL FILTER FOR NATURAL ODOR CONTROL – Organic activated charcoal filter traps odors naturally so kitchen compost bin has no smell –

Does not smell even if i don’t empty it for 2 weeks. I bought the compost-able liners and rarely have to clean to container but when i do, it cleans up beautifully.

I’m in love with this countertop trash bin convenient when cooking in the kitchen i avoid having to walk back and forth to my big trash can i recommend this.

I never thought i would be composting in the house. The first thought that came to my head was, that’s going to smell. Well, this little bin has me completely surprised. It’s perfect for the indoors, i keep it under my kitchen sink. Doesn’t take much room and doesn’t smell at all.

I have tried 3 other compost bins for my kitchen and they were awful. There are no fruit flies 9r bad smells coming from this compost bin. It is sturdy and looks good on the counter.

A few years ago we lived with my in laws, my father in law is quite the gardener, he was always composting, i learned quite a bit. We purchased a house and it had a compost all the way at the edge of our property, at first we had a bucket next to the sink but then we had ants. We gave up a lot of composting last year because we couldn’t figure out a system that worked for us. When we found this i was super excited, it doesn’t smell, i only have to head to the compost outside once a week, it works for us, also its adorable.

Cute little bin that doesn’t stink. I wanted to test it so i’ve thrown in a bunch of scraps (tea bags, coffee grounds, veggie scraps) and left it on the counter for a week. So far i don’t smell it and my husband hasn’t thrown it away yet so it must be working.

My boyfriend was raised with using compost bins but i never was. So he took this clear container we had sitting in storage and was using it to collect his compost. Well personally i do not like looking at his leftover veggies, egg shells, banana peels, etc. So when i found this compost i knew i had to get it. I am so glad i did and so was my boyfriend. This is a much neater and sleeker look and keeps any smells inside. It’s also go the handle which makes it more simple to carry outside and empty into the compost bin he’s started outside. He couldn’t be happier with his new compost bin and i couldn’t be happier with the nice cleaner look.

LEAK PROOF STAINLESS STEEL –

This is a great looking little compost bin. The charcoal filter works really well. I have had scraps sitting in there for multiple days without any smell. It doesn’t look out of place on my counter and is easy to dump when needed.

This compost bin was very sleek and decorative where it would not be an eyesore sitting in your kitchen collecting those items you were throwing out. I like the handle for easy transportation to the outside site that dump it out into. It saves having to find that empty butter bowl or ice cream container to hold the scraps and looks a mess sitting out on the counter. This tidies it all up and has the lid to keep the smells inside.

Orig comment: within a couple weeks the seam on the lip of the lid split so the lid doesn’t close tightly any more. Would love a replacement but no idea how to contact seller. Otherwise it’s a good compost bin. Updated 11/23/2018: i submitted a request for help due to the above comment, many months after returns were closed. They sent me a new one at no cost. Appreciate the customer service.

After years of using random uncovered bowls and bins, i finally broke down and bought this sweet little compost bin. What in the heck was i thinking waiting so long?. This thing is awesome, holds a bunch, and eliminated bugs and smells. It’s had many admirers when people visit us and would make a great gift for anyone who saves their food scraps.

My husband didn’t want me to have a composter in the kitchen because he was worried about smell and bugs. The man is a freak about bugs in the kitchen. We have been using this for about 2 months now, and there has been absolutely no smell at all. I only empty it about once a week into our outdoor composter, so it does get pretty smelly. But with the lid on, there is no external smell at all. And absolutely no fruit flies around it at all. I have not heard one complaint from him about it. The only reason it didn’t get a 5 star rating from me is that the lid is difficult to clean. There is a rim in the lid for the carbon filter, and dirt and mold accumulates in there, and it is very difficult to get in and clean it. A small issue, but it bothers me regardless of that.

Looks nice enough to keep on your counter if you use it a lot. Love the charcoal filter so it doesn’t stink up the house.

FITS UP TO 1 WEEK OF WASTE –

There is zero smell that gets through the filters. It came with an extra filter set, too.

I’m absolutely in love with all my vremi products. It’s great to have a bin in the house that a can compost in with no issues.

Perfect to hold small amounts before i dump into my large composted outside.

I use this bin for composting food waste, my previous ceramic one (loved it) needed replaced. This one is a great size, but the lid does not have a gasket to ensure the closure is air tight. This allows fruit flys and smells to get in and out. Trying to find a gasket to fit and improved charcoal filters. Cleaning the lid is a problem at times especially getting it dry. There is a area where the square filter is inserted and the lip is so deep it is hard to clean inside of it.
