Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

We ordered two of these pails for kitchen scraps and were happy until the knobs on both lids came off. There is no way to fix them since they were welded (poorly). I would not recommend getting them until the lid issue is resolved. Otherwise, they are attractive, odor free, and easy to keep clean.

    Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

    This pail's capacity is large enough for a weeks worth of kitchen scraps. It is sturdy enough to take outside to composter and empty. There is no odor nor need for the charcoal filters of other types of compost pails. Very well made, attractive on my granite counter top which makes it readily available when paring fruits and vegetables.

      Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

      Takes up quite a bit of room on counter but this Compost Pot holds a lot of kitchen scraps. Lid fits tightly, so even though there are no filters that fit it, it does a great job of keeping odors inside and not throughout the kitchen.

        Great for collecting modest amounts of coffee grounds, tea leaves, kitchen scraps, and paper towels for composting, and it looks a lot nicer than old yogurt containers!

          The container fits under the sink or looks nice enough to keep on the cupboard. I have purchased several, one for myself and for gifts to people who asked about kitchen compost containers.

            Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

            This is useful and brilliantly does the job for which it was intended. I plan to buy a second so I will have one for the kitchen and one just outside my kitchen on the deck. This will give me some wiggle room for trips to the compost pile and allow me to eliminate the large malodorous bucket I have been using up until now.

              Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

              Would a plastic rim seal be feasible to close the gap between pail and lid or would it pick up odors, thus defeating the reason to buy the stainless pail in the first place?

                I personally do not use this pail but it makes a great gift for those who do. Bags help encourage reluctant grandchildren to empty compost.

                  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.
