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.

    Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

    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.

        Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

        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.

            We previously owned a ceramic compost crock that was very attractive, but was difficult keeping clean and fruit flies could still get in it and lay eggs, which was gross. This stainless steel pail is perfect, it gets emptied easily and can be cleaned easily. Is still attractive enough to have on the shelf and handy for putting things into. I am very happy with this purchase.

              Works and looks great on kitchen counter. Like that it does not have filter - one less cost! Knob on the lid is not attached well, but handy husband resolved that.

              Almost perfect for my house

              Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

              I've been looking for a long time to find a kitchen compost pail that met all my criteria for size, simplicity and ease of use. My only complaint is that the lid should be a heavier grade of stainless steel, and the lid's handle keeps working itself loose. I'd like the lid to be all one piece with a sturdier rolled edge. Otherwise, this pail is great.

                Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

                I've had several different Compost Pails over the years.; The first one was ceramic and very attractive, the second was just right at the time but over time the plastic took on an awful odor I couldn't get rid of even with bleach. It also was so large that when full I couldn't carry. This slick little guy is just right. It's not so heavy when full that it's hard for me to carry and it washes out like a dream. No nasty, smelly, lingering odors here. It fits right under the sink. I'm getting older, 72, and I cannot lift what I used to, so this one was perfect. I love your products!
