Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

This is a great product. I purchased this to replace a much larger plastic pail which required use of a plastic bag liner. This made the old container very messy to empty since compost can start to liquefy after a few days. This pail is the perfect size. Small enough to force you to empty frequently. The stainless steel means is easy to clean without using a liner. The pail is well constructed with a sturdy handle and snug fitting top. It is a little expensive but I think worth the price.

      Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

      We use this as our kitchen compost, I.e. Anything that is not protein. We use it with compostible bags, and empty it every 5 or 6 days. The container stays clean. The bags decompose with the kitchen scraps. It was a perfect solution to our fruit fly problem.

        Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

        The container is on my kitchen counter which is very handy for disposing of food scraps before taking them to the compost. It is also attractive and I like that it's made of stainless steel rather than plastic (more petroleum)! The lid stays firmly on so no fruit flies have been present. I would recommend this product and even bought two extra for my neighbors who are also contributing to the shared compost. Thank you Gardener's Supply Company!

              The lid started to rust after only three days! And I use the composting bags which you might think wouldnkeepmthat from happening. I read a review of this product before I bought it saying that rust was a problem - I should have believed the reviewer. Don't make the same mistake. Stay with a ceramic bucket.

              Knob on lid broke within a month!

                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.
