Bamboo Compost Pail 2.5 5 8 8
beautiful junk; split after six months. Received as a housewarming gift from my sister in July. Put it beside the kitchen sink. In January, it split, right up the side, near one of the points where the handle attaches. (I happened to be standing right there and heard it -- sounded like tearing paper.) DO NOT BUY.

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. April 4, 2011
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. March 3, 2010
Looks awesome - but bamboo splits I love the looks of the pail and enjoyed it on my kitchen counter. But it split vertically. We glued and clamped it, and it lasted another year or so. The inner bucket handle was flimsy and not up to the task. Imagine the mess of a full container, included wet coffee grounds hitting the floor! The coffee hit my 10 foot ceiling. Thus the handle was useless. Despite it's lack of use, it recently broke completely (the handle). And with the split wood, the lid no longer fit - so out it went. January 14, 2014

Bamboo is a group of woody perennial evergreen plants of the grass family. Some of its members are giant bamboo, forming by far the largest members of the grass family. Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant in the world: up to three to four feet a day. This accelerated growth rate allows bamboo to be harvested in three to five years, far more often than the 10 to 20 year harvest cycle of most softwoods. Unlike the environmental damage caused by the deforestation of trees, proper harvesting of bamboo leaves the root system intact, creating little or no topsoil disruption. This renewable, sustainable resource produces 35% more oxygen than its equivalent in trees while reducing carbon dioxide gas that is blamed for global warming. With the tensile strength of steel, it's the strongest growing woody plant in the world.
