Rated 5 out of 5 by Keeps Odors at Bay We keep this under our kitchen sink and throw scraps in as needed. I never notice any smells from the food--the filter does a good job at containing smell. We don't use the compost bags in it--while it would save a bit of cleanup, the bin is easy to wash when needed (another benefit of this one over other options). April 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great filters What more can one say about charcoal filters that work like a charm!? April 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful! I bought this for my mom for her birthday. She asked for it actually. She loves it! It holds a decent amount of food before she takes it outside to the compost bin. Before, the food would stink up the kitchen quickly, but now, the filters help keep it contained! March 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Space saving and still durable after three years I bought this kitchen counter compost bin about three years ago. It has held up to regular use quite well and is space saving. Also dishwasher safe (not the filters). The lid's two filter system has its benefits. but the lid's interior design, to accommodate the filters, holds water (even with the vent holes) after it has been washed and rinsed, whether hand washed or in dishwasher. Not a big deal but need to remember that after you've washed the lid, you have to be sure to dry it thoroughly (between both interior tiers) with a towel to soak up the water retained by the tiers before you put the lid 'back in action.'

Rated 4 out of 5 by 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! April 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! March 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Just as described. Loved the smell proof insert in the lid. Genius idea! February 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. September 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 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. March 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Our last compost pail broke... We bought this one. I am so glad! This one is elegant looking, functional and smell proof with the charcoal filter! Highly recommend it! August 29, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great item Charcoal filtrer really works! Great! Recommend it February 15, 2011
