    Comments about Galvanized Compost Pail:

    Love this product but wish there was a way to have the top attached so I don't have to set a dirty top onto my counters everytime. We use this product almost everyday, and I love how much compost material it holds!

    the bottom is not constructed from the same metal as the top and lid. If it were, it would be a much stronger, more durable container.

      Comments about Galvanized Compost Pail:

      I purchased to replace an old compost container but am still deciding if I'll use it for compost or something else. It's very versatile and could be used for flowers, hauling picnic gear, etc. I do wish it had a carbon filter option in case I decide to store it on a counter top(as a compost pail) or under the sink.

        I was disappointed to find a very sharp edge inside of the lid of this particular product! Please let manufacturer know about this and perhaps they could modify it in some way?

          Comments about Galvanized Compost Pail:

          This pail was on sale, and I liked the rustic look of it. I just bought a composting bin, and didn't like wasting plastic bags to transport kitchen waste in. This does the job just fine. And if I ever get sick of it, I can turn it into a planter!

          Comments about Galvanized Compost Pail:

          I really love the way it looks in my mostly stainless steel kitchen. Easy to empty food scraps from dinner plates. I think the bottom needs an extra coat of something so it will never rust. Really perfect!

            It sits on my kitchen counter and receives all our compostable scraps - great capacity and fits in with our country house decor.

            Bought 2 since they aren't quite as big as our old, green, plastic pail that cracked and had to be replaced. Appear to be well constructed. Will have to see how they hold up to being cleaned in our dishwasher.
