      Stylish but OK

      By Wilfred

      from Sherman, Me

      Pros

      • Like To Rustic Look

      Cons

      • 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

        By Bette Jayne

        from Myrtle Beach, SC

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Big enough

        Cons

        • Lid Doesn't Fit Right

        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!

        Pros

          Cons

            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.

              from Clinton, WA

              Verified Buyer

              Pros

              • Easy to clean
              • Holds a lot

              Cons

              • Bag Slips Inside
              • Hard to empty
              • Industrial Appeasrasnce
              • Neck too narrow

              Best Uses

              • 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.

              the cutest compost pail ever

              Pros

              Cons

              • Lid hard to remove

              Best Uses

              • Chicken Feed Pail
              • Compost Pail

              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

              By Lynn the composter

              from Wisconsin

              Verified Buyer

              Pros

                Cons

                  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.

                    Best Uses

                      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.

                                  Perfect size, but neck area can make emptying quickly difficult and the handle snapped off after a month, had to use sheet metal screw to re-attach

                                        Hi, this is Sue from Tennessee amending my earlier review. I still love this item very much, and wanted to add that my handles appear strong, no problems, but I did not get the filters in the box and had to order those separately. Hopefully if they see this review they will send me some - a little disappointed with that, even though still thrilled with the item!
