Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail Keeps it Simple

  • Practical and attractive way to collect kitchen scraps
  • Easy to clean; resists odors and stains

The perfect match for today’s sleek, modern kitchen, this pail is also extremely practical. Stainless steel won’t take on the odors or colors of onions, garlic and other pungent food scraps. It easily rinses clean and is dishwasher-safe, too.

  • 7-1/4" in diameter x 7" H
  • 1-gallon capacity
  • Dishwasher-safe

Not quite up to snuff for the price

    Comments about Brushed Stainless Steel Compost Pail:

    I like the way this compost bucket looks on my counter, and its capacity is adequate if your compost pile is not too far away.
    The drawback, however, is its heft. I have dented it by banging my plastic coffee grounds container on its inside to get as many grounds as I could into the bucket.
    I am unsure about whether to recommend it. Seems to me that it should withstand coffee grounds banging.

      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.
