    Ceramic pots look nice but could never withstand the not so delicate touch my spouse would use to empty the contents. The steel bucket is perfect, and it holds more scraps.

      Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

      I have several of these pails. I use them for stinky things, like kitchen scraps, coffee ground and for holding cat poop. They are better than other compost pails because they do not have holes in the top to let the odor out. Simple, neat, effective, and blend into any kitchen decor.

        The knob is loose and wobbly; the screw isn't accessible so we can't tighten it.

        Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

        We use this product to collect compostables and daily take them outside. It's a beautiful container and well made. It's air tight and holds moisture which can cause thing to start decomposing before we get them out of the kitchen. Not a bad thing necessarily.

            Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

            While this pail is the perfect size for under the sink it is attractive enough for the counter top. It is light weight so even when full it is easy to carry out to the yard compost bin. My last container was ceramic and very heavy. So heavy in fact the handle broke off. I gave it only 3 stars because I have started to see areas in the inside bottom changing color. I am not sure if this will eventually deteriorate to the point of leaking. They say this is a stainless pail......perhaps only stainless looking??? I am not sure, so only time will tell. I have had it a little over a month and do not use a bag inside. If it develops holes in short order, I will be a asking for a replacement, but for now I really like it.

            Best compost container

                  Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

                  I have had two of these for years. They have no rust and look as good as the day I bought them. I am purchasing one for my daughter-in-law who complained that her fancy compost container was starting to rust.
                  This looks good on the counter. One of my friends thought it was an ice bucket.
                  I highly recommend this compost container.

                  Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

                  I've been using this stainless steel compost bucket for a couple of years and have several issues with it. First it began rusting on the outside of the pail within a few months. Then I started noticing a foul puddle on the counter around the bucket if the compost wasn't dumped for a day or two. I finally realized the pail is leaking. I purchased this compost pail for it's size and to use only for veggie and fruit scraps in my kitchen.
