    Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

    This compost pail is by far the best ever! It's attractive. It empties easily since the top is wider than the bottom. The design of the lid keeps out fruit flies and traps odors since it does not have holes in it. No need to purchase additional filters or fruit fly traps!

      this pail looks great in my kitchen and there is absolutely no odor. It holds quite a lot so it takes several days until I have to empty it in my new compost site. I love this little pail.

          I have extensive flower gardens and this bucket works great for putting the flowers into water as I cut them. With the handle it is easy to carry and holds quite a few flowers.

            I bought it for my daughter who is just starting out composting. This can is pretty enough to leave out, has a sturdy handle for transferring to the compost and never emits any odors. She is very pleased with it.

                  Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

                  In the past, we have purchased two of these pails from Gardeners Supply and have been very pleased with them. This recent purchase of what we thought would be the same pail with the same quality has disappointed us. The pail came initially with a wobbly handle on top that seemed about to fall off. Gardeners Supply quickly replaced the lid, but this one does not fit snugly on the pail, so it allows air and fruit flies to get in. It seems as if the quality of this product has declined.

                    This compost pail empties with one motion and cleans easily. It has enough capacity to hold all my kitchen scraps (with paper napkins, tissues, waxed paper) for a few days before needing to be emptied. After breaking a ceramic pail, it looks like I'll have this unbreakable one forever. (I just wish it came in colors . . . . )

                      Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

                      Several years ago, I bought a stainless compost bucket for kitchen scraps, etc. from Gardener's. It burned up when we lost our house in a fire. We lived in a tiny cabin while we rebuilt, so we bought a smaller compost container (ceramic - bad idea). Now that we're in the new house, I ordered another stainless bucket (after its being out of stock for a month or two), thinking it would be the same as the old one. However, what Gardener's is selling now is smaller, requiring daily emptying, sometimes more than once daily if we have company and fix more than one big meal a day. It's still stainless, sturdy, the lid fits well, and the compostable bags that Gardener's sells fit it fine. And I should have read the details, but I assumed since it looked the same it would be the same. Silly me.

                        Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

                        I was hesitant to buy this after reading some of the reviews but I'm glad I did. It is much bigger than the compost pail I had on my counter before- and this is much more attractive than the plastic one I was using. I like this one because it doesn't require a filter. The only reason this got 4 instead of 5 stars is because the lid doesn't fit tightly- it just nests on top of the pail. Which is fine and I haven't noticed a smell at all coming from it. But I'd like it if the lid were more secure.

                        I love the look of this kitchen composter, but after one week the top handle is coming off and you are unable to re-adjust screw yourself. Could be a simple fix, but is poorly designed.
