      red compost crock.

      By Garden Girl

      Pros

      • The Crock Is Attractive

      Cons

      • All The Way Around It's
      • Even With Charcoal Filter
      • Hard To Get Vegie Matter
      • In Lid Lid Is Moldy
      • It Isn't Practical
      • It Should Be Equal Width
      • I Won't Buy It Again
      • This Is A Very Poor Desin
      • Through The Narrow Neck

      Best Uses

        This kitchen scrap holder is a poor design. It should be built with all the sides the same width.Instead, because the top is narrower than the bottom. Food scraps get stuck at the bottleneck and it is hard to get them out without making a mess.
        Even though I purchased charcoal filters for the food scrap holder, the charcoal mildewed the 2nd day I used it.

        Compost holder is attractive.

        The compost holder is grossly overpriced. I won't buy another one. It's hard to keep clean. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH THIS PRODUCT.

        I have mixed feelings about this

        I love this container for the convenience and the way it looks in my kitchen. What I don't like is that the charcoal filter definitely keeps us humans from smelling any odor but the knats/fruit flies or whatever they are have no trouble at all finding it. I had at least 5-6 at any one time. I have lined the inside of lid with foil which seems to have eliminated them.

              This is perfect! The compost crock holds enough scraps that I can leave it for a couple of days or so before having to take it out to the compost. My biggest concern was if it would smell - I bought the filters to go along with it, and there is absolutely no smell at all! I love it! And, it looks nice on my counter top! Very happy with this product :)

                  I've had other compost containers for my kitchen, but they were harder to clean and broke easily. This is sturdy and keeps the fruit flies out. I would definitely recommend this container to anyone looking for an attractive compost container for the kitchen counter.

                      Needed to have a counter container to put kitchen cuttings before putting in compost pile...
                      Last one I had was ceramic and I made the mistake of leaving outside one night in winter...I really like this one because it is metal...

                            Finally found a compost bin that looks good on my counter, and is big enough that I don't have to empty it every day.

                              This is my first counter top compost holder. I hesitated a bit over the price and just wasn't sure about having something out all the time filled with food scraps. I splurged because this one looked so cute. It's even cuter in person, perfect for any country/ranch decor. Great shade of dark red. And absolutely NO odor! I have a pretty sensitive nose and didn't smell anything-even onions-after several days! My only lesson: need to empty it out every few days as we had a bunch of stuff mold over. My bad. It holds so much that it's easy to forget. Definitely recommend!

                                I had an old plastic bucket I was using to collect compostibles, and it stank. It was horrible. Our master composter on Staten Island said it was because I had created an anaerobic environment and that I needed to get something that let air in. So I searched Gardeners Supply and found this metal compost bucket. I thought it would be too small, but it hasn't been and the charcoal filters work perfectly.
