Rated 4 out of 5 by from Composting in Style! It is nice to keep this small compost bin on my counter and have it look nice. No smell, no excess food scraps laying around waiting to go outside!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest High Quality Way to Compost This stainless steel compost pail is extremely high quality. I have had it for over 2 years and it still looks brand new. I have seen other ones at other stores that are not as heavy and end up rusting or looking cheap. This one from Container Store looks great on my granite kitchen counter & is the perfect size to blend in without looking out of place. The compost pail in general holds the compost items but never holds any odors. I love this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from makes composting even easier I love using my compost pail! It looks good enough to leave on the counter and saves me a trip outside every time I need to add something to the compost. It's very handy that it's dishwasher safe as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek & Sensational! Not only does this compost pail look great, but it holds a lot of scrap without odor thanks to the filter system. I have reduced my trash to less than a kitchen size bag a week thanks to this little pail & my new compost container outside! We eat a lot of fruit & vegetables and I can easily go 3-5 days before having to take this outside. Might be a little more often in the summer simply because of the warmer air temps, but this has been a wonderful purchase. Cleans easily, too - simple wipe with a damp cloth keeps it shiny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this pail This pail holds more kitchen waste than I thought it would. and still no smell!! It looks pretty on the counter and doesnt take up much room. There was one time we went as long as a week without emptying the pail and still no smell.
