Great product, does what it should, looks good.
5 out of 5

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...

Bamboo Compost Pail is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mixed Bag I love that the pail is made of bamboo and ecologically sound. I love the way the pail looks. I am even willing to pay for the filters, but like others my pail started splitting. It is over two years old so I have avoided the frustration of having it come apart immediately after purchasing it. It retrospect, I should have gotten a compost pail that has a longer life and just keep it under the sink. Fortunately, it is recyclable. It's next life after a little wood glue will be as a planter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fell apart I really wanted something that was both functional and attractive and this fit the bill for a couple weeks. Once a bit of water came in contact with the bamboo casing, the glue basically dissolved and the pail started to split apart. I continued to use it and turned the split part toward the wall but it happened repeatedly until the pail was useless.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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. So disappointing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
