Don'r buy

Comments about : Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

I left this on a shelf on the back porch the first winter I had it - under a roof but easily reachable by humidity, freezing and thawing. These are normal for Indiana but stainless steel is impervious, right? HAH! When I got back in spring after surgery, complications, and prolonged, slow convalescence, I was astonished to find it cracked from the upper rim downward, and rusted inside in random places. So I retired it to dry indoor duty. This was several years ago but it still irks me. Gardeners Supply has reliably been my source for quality items: this has been the only disappointment.

Comments about : Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

I bought this because it was more modern looking to fit my kitchen. I also thought the stainless would be more durable. We haven't had it very long and the knob rusted and snapped off. The bottom warped too. Ugh. I'll probably buy a nicer looking pottery one somewhere else.

Comments about : Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

I have been composting for years and I have always had a plastic container to hold my kitchen scraps. I figured I should grow up and buy a cool indoor stainless steel pot. I bought the one stated here and within a couple of weeks the knob broke off. I tried to use gorilla glue, but that would not hold it on either. Maybe I just got a lemon, but I'm back to my good old plastic Tupperware container.

        Comments about : Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

        We generate a lot of kitchen waste and are dedicated composters. This bin is attractive and a good capacity (especially relative to the ceramic bins). We really like the fact that it does not have a vented lid, because that helps limit fruit fly issues. However, it seemed to rust (developing 3-4 weak spots on the bottom) and leaked. Really disappointing.

            We have been composting for a few years. This compost pail is far superior to the plastic one we had with a filter.

              The button handle on the lid broke off after 2 days. The can itself is fine and attractive on the countertop but getting ready to send the whole thing back for a replacement since the lid does not come off easily without the handle.
