Bamboo Compost Pail
I have only had this for a few weeks, but have been happy with it. There is not a smell and looks attractive in my kitchen. It is a good size for a family.

Great little composter!
This is functional and looks good on the countertop. I like that the bucket inside comes out easily & is dishwasher-safe, too. The charcoal filters are a bit difficult to find tho.

Great product, does what it should, looks good.
This is so much nicer looking than most compost pails. Rather than standing out like an eyesore on the counter, it blends in nicely. People hardly notice it and if they do they comment on how nice it looks. I love that the inner container can be removed to take things out to the bin and to put it in the dishwasher. I don't really understand some of the complaints other reviewers had about the quality of the bamboo. It looks very nice and seems solidly put together. Friends who compost who use a stainless steel pail have complained a lot about fingerprints and other smudges and drips being difficult to clean off, and they say theirs always looks dirty no matter how hard they try. This pail is definitely more forgiving than that. I'd highly recommend it to anyone concerned about the aesthetics of their compost supplies.

Pleasing to the eye, but...
Even after reading some negative reviews on this product's shoddy craftsman's work, I decided to buy it. It's a great looking compost pail!!
Unfortunately, after about a week or two later the bamboo completely fell apart, and I decided to return it for a "less eye-pleasing" compost box that won't fall apart of me.
