Knob on lid broke within a month!

Pros

Cons

  • Knob on lid broke off

    Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

    I was so excited to start using this compost pail! There was no odor at all with the lid on. But not even a month (of gentle use) later, the knob on the lid came right off in my hand as I went to open the pail. So bummed. It's very inconvenient to use without the knob (lid is hard to get off now), so I've stopped composting.. I'm hesitant to buy another compost pail after seeing this poor quality.

      I was a little concerned about the price. But my experience with using just an ice cream pail hasn't been the greatest. So I splurged a bit. I LOVE it.

          I wanted to by a metal pail because I thought it would last, but the knob is half broken off. I will have to find another one to replace this when it comes off completely.

          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.

            It takes several days of peelings and coffee grinds and easy to tote outside. The best one I've used.

              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.

                    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.
