Nice design, but difficult to use with bags

Pros

    Cons

      Best Uses

        We bought it to replace our old ceramic compost crock. The problem with this one is the design (which we should have realized before buying it): if you use a bag, it's almost impossible to get it out through the narrow top. And putting things in without a bag makes cleaning difficult. We therefore opted for a metal crock.

        Cute But Not So User-friendly

        • Hard To Pull Out Full Bag

        • Hard To Pull Out Full Bag

        Best Uses

        • Compost Collector
        • Decor

        I use this on my kitchen counter to collect scraps for compost. I love its farmhouse look but get frustrated every time I try to pull out the liner bag when it's full. Because of the smaller "neck" opening, the compost gets stuck & rips the bag as I work to pull it out. I'm trying to figure out how to make it work (don't fill it full so it can collapse & come through the opening flatter?) but I may have to return it for a more "user friendly" compost container. I suppose if I didn't use the liners it would work fine, but then I'd have to wash it out every time I empty it. I love the liners!

              Too big and bulky for my counter, Thinking about turning it into a planter for outside. Not as attractive as I expected. Wish I would have ordered the smaller prettier one.

              • Emptying Is Difficult
              • Narrow Top Keeps Scraps

              Best Uses

                We like the rustic look in our Log Home, but the narrow top makes emptying difficult. Another time, we'll go with a better design.

                not so sturdy

                Best Uses

                • Easy To Store Under Sink

                I wanted something big enough but not so large to fit under the sink. It does and easy to carry outside to compost bin. BUT, the lid doesn't fit well and when I tried to press it on the handle almost went flat but for the fingers inside it. So, the lid fits not fully on the top. I do have to pull items out from the container as well.

                Just Perfect!

                    Best Uses

                      This compost bucket is ideal for my 1840s VT farmhouse - looks great in the kitchen. It's a decent size, but I still find myself emptying it more often than I would like.

                      As mentioned before, the neck is a bit narrow so I try to tear up larger pieces before putting in - but it's not that much of a hassle (though I supposed it could be if you use compost bags).

                      The first one that arrived had horrible attempts at making it look "rustic" - lots of smeared black paint, but Gardener's sent out a replacement right away.

                      • Composting kitchen waste

                      The narrow neck precludes easily removing the bag to empty out the kitchen waste. The container is so deep, the bag slips down inside it unless held in place with a rubber band.

                      I use this pail to collect vegetable scraps for my chickens and it is perfect. I have gotten a lot of compliments on this pail. It fits perfectly on the kitchen counter and can hold a lot of scraps. The lid can be hard to remove sometimes but most of the time it is easy.

                      Farmhouse Compost Pail

                          Best Uses

                            The Farmhouse milk can compost pail is quaint but not practical due to the poor design. The neck, being smaller than the body, makes it virtually impossible to remove the filled compost bag. Ideally, the entire top of the body should be able to be removed for easier emptying. I'm glad I kept my old compost bucket.

                              I like this bucket. I use the bags in it and love both of them. The lid is kind of hard to remove and replace but may loosen a little with use. I like the size and the look.
