          Love the style and finish. Poorly made for the price. Lid handle is flimsy. It snapped off the first time I opened the lid. Very disappointed.

          I squealed when I saw this in the catalog. I've been hunting for a vintage can similar to this one and am thrilled I found the perfect style and size new. I leave it out on the counter and have had compliments from family and neighbor. Since I live on a real little farm - it's the perfect choice. Buy it you will LOVE it! Sits next to my wire egg basket and I don't worry about breaking it because it's metal.

          Just like on the farm

                This is a great size, no odors. When I take it out to empty into the compost, I feel like I'm a kid on the farm again :). I have the spinning dual barrel compost bin, and one side is halfway full now.

                Cheap and unattractive handle attachment

                  Best Uses

                    This is very cute and charming and perfect for my kitchen...UNTIL you look at the black metal plate that holds a very flimsy metal tab with a hole in it for the handle. My guess is that tab will last a matter of months. Boo. One tab is already bent and the handle does not swivel correctly and the coloration is already wearing off of it. In the photo, you can't see the ugly black metal piece that does not fit the overall aesthetic of the pail. I'm debating about sending it back. I received several things from this catalog today and I'd say it's mostly over-priced with cheap, flimsy components and construction. I won't be ordering more. A shame!

                    Correction - Did Come with 2 Filters

                          The pail DID come with 2 (5-1/2in) charcoal filters that work very well.

                          I was mistaken in my previous review (this was a gift I received and the filters that DID come with the pail were accidentally left out by the giver). Couldn't find a way to edit my first review, so wanted to be sure to correct.

                          • Household Compostables

                          This compost pail is a great size, spacious enough to hold a few days' worth of material, but small enough that you have to empty it before the smell really gets bad - we cook 2+ times a day for 2 people. It did not come with a charcoal filter, as the product description says, so be sure to order some (they block the smell perfectly!). I love it for the look: it really gives that farmhouse feel. The quality is great - you can tell it's made with solid materials.

                          However, on mine at least, I was disappointed to find that the final layer of color-coating that gives it that galvanized steel look wasn't complete. A large (1-in or so) section of the lid didn't get the final layer, and so you see a swath of kind of tannish something (another color layer, I guess) underneath the outer protective glaze (the glaze, thankfully, is complete).

                          Might wanna check when it arrives and send it back straightaway for a replacement if you find such a defect. That's just sloppy quality control.

                          This arrived today so not too much to say about it.
                          1) Much larger than I thought it would be--I am poor at estimating size, so think almost size of stand mixer.
                          2) Needs filter to work, but the product does not come with anyway. Yes, sold seperately--but one should come with product.
                          3) Not made in USA.
