Composting is a great way to reduce waste, but collecting fruit and veggie remains in your kitchen can be tough (and smell bad, too)! This sleek, stainless steel compost pail can be stored right in your kitchen, so you can toss waste in it any time. Two replaceable charcoal filters keep odors out. When full, just grab the pail by the handle and carry it out to a nearby composting area.

We have have this compost pail for over 2 years now and love it. The filters work so well that people visiting have no idea that it is sitting in the kitchen next to the sink. Since it is made of stainless steel it blends into our decor and has held up very well. The only issue that we have run into is the knob that holds the handle coming unscrewed which is easily fixed and due to the fact that is is used so much.
Excellent quality. Good size. Easy to clean. Looks good in the kitchen. The charcoal filters really do work to eliminate odours (although I have not been able to find replacement filters on your website). Beats lidded plastic buckets every time.
I am new to composting and I have not attempted it in my backyard for fear of attracting rodents. I love this little pail because it makes composting SO EASY! I had no idea how much I unnecessarily threw away until I got this pail. Now I keep it on the counter when I'm prepping food and just toss the scraps in as I go along. (Unless it is too stinky to have the lid off. Then, I just collect the scraps and place them in the pail later.) When the lid is on, I can't smell a thing - even if there is mold growing in there. Every Saturday, I take my pail to the compost drop-off center at my local farmer's market. If the pail gets full before the week ends, I just transfer my compost into a plastic bag and freeze it. Easy-peasy. I would recommend putting some shredded paper in the bottom of the pail before anything else. It will sop up the oozing bits and make it easier to empty. I will say that it's not a huge pail, but it works for the 2 people in my household.
I didn't really compost before, but just having a pail by the sink reminds me too and I do it daily now! I'm also suprised about how not smelly it is. We dump, coffee grinds, the used paper filters, eggs, veggie and fruit waste. No animal products though.
It's attractive, convenient and a conversation starter making it's presence in the kitchen and easy way to spread the word.
This compost bin is really easy to use (my five year old loves to empty it into our outdoor bin). The top is easy to lift up, but the bin contains smells, flies, etc. completely. It seems to be a good quality and I believe that we will be using it A LOT.
After having a plastic one for several years, this compost bin is a pleasure to the eye. Very cute, sturdy and well made. It fills a bit too fast for us so I wish they had a bigger one but regardless, we love this one. I have noticed zero smell coming from it and it cleans easily. I highly recommend this for your compost needs.
