Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

It is a nice container, but the handle broke off the first week I had it. It can still be used, but the fact that it broke takes away any good I can say in my review. It is still and attractive compost bucket. I am just disappointed that I paid that much for something so poorly constructed.

      Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

      Looks great sitting on the kitchen counter, no odor when covered. The biodegradable bags fit perfectly. Sure it could be bigger but then I wouldn't want it on my counter so the size is perfect and with the handle it is easy to move it to where I am working or carry it to the compost bin.

            Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

            I bought this compost bucket to use as a portable dog water bucket for my van. I have never found a large enough bucket with a lid before this one. I have had no water spillage from this bucket. I have been able to fill the bucket with plenty of water because it does not spill. I read a review that told me it would rust. The tight fitting lid has etched the bucket at the top and that area is rusty, the lid is very rusty where it fits inside the bucket. The rust occurred quickly. I can live with the rust if it stays at the top of the bucket. But this bucket is expensive to rust so quickly. I don't know if I would want it in my kitchen rusty.

                This can holds way more than it appears to! Very happy with it. I was worried it would have an odor since the lid didn't actually seal, but there is no sign of any odor at all. Exceeded my expectations.

                  Wonderful replacement for the plastic bags my husband has been using for years. No leakage, no smell, looks good, easy to empty into the compost pile.

                  Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

                  I loved this bucket at first, but gradually it started to get rust spots around the outside and today the handle fell off. No way to reattach it. Looks like it got rusty and just detached. We've had it for about 2 years. I would only recommend it if you don't mind replacing it every two years.

                    Perfect for use under the kitchen sink. Easy to put kitchen scrapes in the bucket for disposal in the outside compost heap. I've had smelly buckets before and this stainless steel one is just right for the kitchen.

                      Oh where or where do you put the scraps. Now you have a solution to replace the plastic container that the berries came in or the less used plastic container. I can fill it over a week, the lid keeps the smell in and there is no dripping on the way to the outdoor compost bin. And it looks sleek on the counter.
