Rated 4 out of 5 by holds a lot! We bought this because we had used our ceramic compost crock to death. Didn't realize it was significantly bigger than the ceramic one, which makes it easier to put off taking the compost OUT... on the other hand, the filter seems to work well so it's not a big problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Rust Holes Rusted little pin holes through the lower edge just above the base. Looks like low quality stainless steel that had inclusions in the metal. I justified the $75 dollar price assuming if it was real stainless steel it would last forever. Everything about it works great, the filters kill any Oder, looks nice on the counter and should last along time. The quality control is bad and the metal must be low quality stainless. Stainless steel should not rust through in 4 months of light use and regular cleaning. December 7, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Odor Minimizer I have been using this for the past six months to keep kitchen scraps before adding them to out composter. The stainless steel is very easy to keep clean, and the filters work well to minimize the odor. The filters kept the odor to a minimum even in the heat of summer in our house without air conditioning, where the temperature was around 80 degrees. We wash it out every week with a citrus based cleaner and warm water. We have also just started using the BioBag liners, and we really like the ease of use of the liner. I'm skeptical if they will breakdown in the composter, but we shall see. The capacity is okay. We eat lots of fresh produce, so we sometimes have to empty it more than once per week. Definitely a good way to minimize the odor and mess of composting kitchen scraps. November 12, 2008
