From kitchen to garden, the art of composting. At the heart of any eco-responsible garden is natural compost. And at the heart of that rich, earthy pile of matter is a variety of nutrient-packed ingredients a generous portion of which is generated in the kitchen. Coffee grounds, tea leaves, fruit rinds and vegetables can all benefit your garden soil when broken down, and reduce the amount of waste headed to the landfill. Gaiam's practical, easy-to-use composting aids keep compost-bound scraps tidy and odor-free until you're ready to carry them outside.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Should've bought the steel one Have had this ceramic compost for less than 60 days and the lid has a hairline crack! It never fit snugly and the carbon filter is slightly too big for the lid but it still works. We empty it about every 4 days and have not been aggressive in our use. We still use it and i love how cute it is in our kitchen but it is very disappointing and I wish we had gotten the steel one. May 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by New To Composing After back-ups from a fairly new & powerful disposal, we decided to try composing. We eat a lot of vegetables & fruits so just throwing peels, etc. out seemed wasteful. We get about two days worth of scraps in the crock. It looks okay on the kitchen counter; never any fruit flies so the filter work well. September 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's adorable! Not a phrase you'd typically use about a compost bin, but it really is. Small enough to fit on the counter and large enough to only need emptying once a day, if that. Absolutely smell-free. I love it! August 24, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by It certainly gets the job done Let's be honest: my needs from an item intended to temporarily hold compost are not enormous. I want it to be sturdy and not overly stinky. Heck, I've used mixing bowls that just happened to be handy in a pinch. (Haven't we all?) This crock certainly meets my modest needs, and it looks (and smells!) significantly more attractive than an uncovered mixing bowl to boot. My only gripe is that, being ceramic, it's as fragile as, well, ceramic. It wasn't out of the box a week before I managed to chip the lid. It wasn't out of the box two months before the lid was in two clean pieces on the kitchen floor. A bit of Gorilla Glue and some choice words later, and we were back up and running, albeit significantly deteriorated in the attractiveness department. At this price point, it would certainly be great if they offered replacement lids for when the inevitable happens - I can't afford to buy a whole new crock every time my hands get slippery while I'm cooking. [Related review: Gorilla Glue is awesome. The lid has now survived in serviceable condition for about two years on nothing more than a single treatment of Gorilla Glue on the seam. So at least there's that...] August 22, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by disappointing initially thrilled with how pretty the ceramic crock was but the inner lip made emptying it difficult and it could not withstand the men of the house vigorous attempts to empty it. Broke in less than 2 months August 5, 2011

Answer: 
No the filters are not interchangeable. The lids are different sizes so the ceramic filter will fall out of the stainless steel lid. The replacement filter you need is 09-1082.

Answer: 
There is no negative impacts from disposing of the charcoal it can even be added to your compost. You would only want to add the charcoal in that case and throw the filter pouch away. The only time that you have to be careful of how charcoal is disposed is if you have soaked it in lighter fluid or something of that nature for barbecuing.

We dropped the cover on our granite counter top and it broke. Is it possible to buy a replacement cover?

Answer: 
Unfortunately because of the way that these crocks are formed (it's done at the same time as the bottom in the same form) the vendor doesn't offer replacement lids. We have tried to get them because we have customers drop their lids but the bottoms still work and they have said it's not a possibility.
