Having had an under the sink bin for years, I was worried it wouldn't work for me, but it works beautifully. My only complaint is that it's hard to hold on to the black inner bin when emptying without having your fingers inside with the scraps. Otherwise, it looks great on the counter and is very convenient to use!
It’s a perfect size as it fits under our kitchen sink. Plus it looks great when it’s on the countertop. I especially like the plastic bucket inside because I can easily bring it and empty in our “green “ bin outside.
I’m really pleased with my new bin, I love the style and color.
It’s the best compost bin ever!
We love ours and I got Ken for our daughter for her birthday will be buying more for gifts
The order arrived in a timely manner, but when I opened the package, I found that the lid to the compost bin didn't fit correctly. The reason was that the bin itself was a little warped and the top of it was not exactly round. I had to do a little bending to the top of the bin to get the lid to stay on, but it still doesn't fit snuggly and shows a gap.
Very well made and not only functional but nice to look at. Came 2 days after I ordered it! Very pleased!
Just love it. Fits my decor. Does the job. Only wishing carbon filters were available.
Delivery time was fast and it arrived looking exactly like it should. The carbon filter works great no smell at all! The handled container inside is the perfect size and it fit's right next to the sink! Very Happy with this purchase!
The Look is great and the convenience is wonderful. The pull out container is convenient and sanitary.
We have a compost bin in our garden area, so buying this compost bin for the kitchen was perfect because it reminds me to use it for all the appropriate items and I’m not bringing them outside constantly. I’ve never smelled anything in it. It’s amazingly attractive. I just love it. It’s something I purchased that really is worthwhile.
I absolutely love my new compost bin for over the counter, it ads so much to my kitchen and it’s such a pretty way to keep the compost scraps until I move them to the outside bin. It doesn’t smell and it’s the perfect size
Looks great on the kitchen counter, well constructed and perfect size, highly recommend
It works like they said it would
I expected something a little heavier in metal for the price. It didn't come with a compost bag or any additional filters as the instructions recommend you change after 6 weeks. I like it but it's a little too pricey for the quality.
It is great to be able to lift the lid and quickly throw the vegetable and fruit rubbage in.
This compost bin is wonderful! It looks great on the counter, the filter eliminates any odor, and it makes composting convenient! I love it!!
It looks fine on my counter, which makes it very convenient to use! Just what I was looking for!
Perfect size for my small cabin and has the “look” & convenience I was searching for
It’s a great size and I love the top and filter!
Perfect size for a days food wastes .Love the easy to remove liner with handle Easy clean up.
It is so practical and elegant. Keeps the smell out and I am so excited to keep my peels!
Great compost bin- large enough and no odor. Shipping was very speedy.
Would definitely buy from this company again!
Have used this now for a couple of weeks. It is a really good size for two people, and takes about as much space as a small toaster. Have to empty it every 2 to 4 days. It totally eliminates odors, is easy to clean, and looks like it belongs on the counter. I am really glad i got this.
Everything I hoped it would be! Large enough for a few days of my scraps, filtered . . . so no odor! Pretty on my counter and fast shipping! ❤️

I love this little compost bin. It is the perfect size for me to put s raps in before taking them out to the composter. It is light to carry, and easy to clean.
I loveeeee this product. I have a small apartment and it’s prefect for my living arrangement. I have no problem at all with bad Oder at all the filter works great. I left it out for 3 months of rain totally forgot to bring it in and the material is very sturdy didn’t get Any rust or any damages due to rain. looks the same as I purchased it. Had it about 3-4 years now. Great product worth my money totally recommend.
it's a perfect addition to my kitchen top.
We've been using this bin for about a month to store food scraps before taking them outside to our main compost area, and it's doing a great job so far. I currently telework for part of the week due to the the pandemic and my "office" is our kitchen table, so I'm sitting close to the bin for most of the day. I can attest the filter works well in that it never seems to get smelly! And of course, there's the cuteness factor- this was the prettiest option I could find.
Gnats seem to be attracted even when we empty regularly. Gnats get inside, even into the filter. It is more than sufficient in every other way.
Compact and cute
I don't know how they keep that smell contained but they do. Only it looks really cute on my shelf so Double YAY!! Also never had a problem cleaning it. I'm not sure what you could complain about it. I mean you can leave stuff in there for weeks and the smell might eventually leak out but really... whose fault would that be?
This is cute on a countertop and fortunately does not look trashy. The filter is a joke because the bin is so small, so I take it out every day. No time for anything to start smelling, and for god sake people, do not compost smelly materials like animal byproducts! Plus, it is a waste to repurchase a charcoal filter -- if you care that much, set the charcoal filter out in the sun for a day to reactivate it. Good as new and no additional waste of money.
One element I do not like is that the inner bin is much smaller than the can -- it does not fit snugly. So, you are not actually getting a 1 gallon bin, you are getting about 15% less than that. Lastly, this company's customer service is insanely creepy. You have to talk to a bot via Facebook Messenger, which restricts you from replying with anything other than its preselected text. I wanted to ask it if I had been accidentally sent too small of a bin, but it didn't let me indicate in any way that I had a specific problem with the order. Totally creepy.
Recieved item and lid was bent and handle was cracked. Retuning item was easy and I was refunded full amount I paid. I want to order another one but I'm worried item will be damaged again.
Amazing our family uses it everyday since so we can give our trees and plants nutrients with bananas peals and other things as well
Exactly what we were looking for. Fits nicely on the counter (we do not have a lot of counter space), easy to clean. The plastic insert is a great addition.
I love it. We don’t have compost but I do bring all our scraps to our chickens every 2 days or so. This is the only one I could find that was small but also has a blast if bucket on the inside. It’s so easy and compared to my normal (just put it in a bag) it is so much cleaner!
Cute, timeless design, classic addition to my kitchen countertop. Functional. The 1L size is just enough for one person household. If you have more people and cook more, consider getting a bigger one. I love this piece as it hides my clatter elegantly. The company is also committed to green/clean energy. I started following them in instagram and I am glad I did. They post feel good topics and images to create a more positive environment for everyone. Kudos!
Ordered this to make keeping my kitchen scraps for the compost bin nicer than a big bowl on my counter. I chose this one over the large one because it has an inner bin. Unfortunately, with a family of 5 this is just too small. It over flows in a single large dinner meal prep with lots of veggies. I wish I would have just gotten the larger one. It is adorable in my counter, does not smell, and would be great for a couple, or single person. It seems well made. I may be saving up to purchase the larger one and giving this one to a friend. I really like it and wish it worked better for us, but that is not the fault of the product.
This can is perfect on my counter.
Bought got the kitchen really nice looks good
I live in a retirement community and the contracted trash disposal does not allow for separation of compostable, recyclable, and "trash" trash. It was really getting to bother me to have to put food waste in with everything else. I'm not sure how I found this one, but it is great! Very attractive so not out-of-place on a counter, separate small pail for the actual food, easy to lift out, dispose of properly, and wash. No odor. Perfect design. I'm not sure how to put a photo here, so will have to let that go. But I'm very happy with this, and can't imagine a better one. Thanks!

Nice looking but lid isn’t a tight fit. I was hoping to keep mice out but don’t think it works for this
This product came damaged, I was told by the manufacturer that I would receive a replacement but I never did.
Good container, I like what it looks like on the counter. Easy to use, empty, and clean.
I got this for my son and daughter-in-law. They love it it's on the counter and it's used everyday!
Best I’ve had - super easy to use and easy to clean.
Compost or chicken buckets are such a pain, smelly and in the way, but this small bucket is lovely. I like that I can take the bucket out and it having a lid to cover the smells. Before this I wanted to be able to keep the bucket on my counter, it makes it easier to use. Now I can do that, the beautiful can adds class to compost. LOL!
It is as lovely as I was hoping. I am a brand new composter. Asked for a large outdoor bin for my birthday. I started collecting stuff on my countertop and then the ants came...
I decided to treat myself to a pretty, convenient order and bug free way to collect stuff to bring outside. I picked this one over another pretty one because I like the idea of a removable inner bucket to wash rather than using liners. That being said if you want to use liners in this one, you absolutely can. It would in fact give you a larger volume. I’m excited to see how this goes. I’ll update once I am in the swing of it.
Handy to use
Its a great addition to my kitchen.
Convenient to use, easy to clean.
We have a garden and we compost year round. I love that it is decorated nicely and is not an eye sore.
The size is perfect and I love what the company stands for and uses all reusable products!
It looks great and keeps the fruit flies at bay!
Ok, this is kinda gross... but, I wanted to try it out. I left food scraps in the composite bucket for over a week... took it outside to open, and so glad I did! Inside the house, there was no evidence of rotting food, no smell, no bugs, nothing. I open the lid outside and a bunch of fruit flies come pouring out along with the awful smell. The food had even liquified somewhat in the bottom, yuck! I emptied it, sprayed with a hose then put the inner plastic bin (which I am so glad it has and I don't have to use bags) and put in my dishwasher. Came out spic n span clean. Only 1 negative, the handle is metal on the plastic bucket, and if you try an experiment like I did, you will notice some metal damage from some source I'm not quite sure of. But some steel wool and it looks much better. Great bucket, perfect size and the inner plastic bin is fabulous!
Absolutely love this compost bin! Perfect size, removable pail easy to dump in outside bin then wash and put back and looks nice sitting on the counter where I do all my chopping.
this is a great compost bin. no smells ,fits nice on my counter. the handy removable to take out to our compost site is great
I just received this item today, but so far it has been awesome! It is sturdily built, and looks very nice. Just as advertised!
Looks great on the counter! Never smells. Bigger than I imagined but so glad that it is! Holds plenty compost. Definitely recommend.
We had resisted a counter top compost bin because they looked so utilitarian. Well, this one is very attractive. We do not experience odors, and the removable inner bucket makes emptying a breeze.
This is a perfect little bin for small compost. I usually just toss my used coffee grounds and eggs shells in there when done. The little pale inside is convenient and easy to rinse out.
My wife loves this compost bin. Found a great place to keep it in the kitchen where she used to have an old plastic bowl full of scraps, which drove me nuts. Easy inner bin to remove and take out to the garden compost. Great Customer Service too!
First kitchen compost bin I’ve owned. Sometimes I don’t empty it for a whole week & I don’t smell a thing until I take the lid off. Haven’t seen any bugs in it.
Looks so nice on my counter! Great purchase and super nice seller!

I love my compost bin!! It doesn’t smell, it looks pretty and I’m very very happy with it. I have not had any white flies around it. It does exactly what you need.
fits great on my counter. doesn't stink at all. even when I open it to put more in the smell is minimal. LOVE IT
Good quality and very functional. The carbon filter really helps with the smell.
Nice little compost bin for my kitchen. I have found that I am more aware of what I dispose of. We are really getting our outdoor compost area built up with a lot more natural garbage which will be great for my garden. I recommend this product.
I love this compost bin, other than it looks good...you can't smell it...highly re commended.

My daughter is an avid gardener and put this little compost bin in her kitchen to gather scraps before taking them out to the big pile outside. There is a pretty outer part, and an easy to clean, easy to remove inner part. There is also a replaceable charcoal filter in the lid to help with deodorizing the scraps as they sit there.
I really like this compost container, and it is a cute addition to my kitchen! My only complaint is that when you put the lid down on it you kind of have to push down so it will close all the way. Other than that it is a great container!
I love this compost bin! It’s easy to clean and it’s so cute sitting on my counter!
We have been composting for over 10 years... This composter has a plastic bucket with handle within the pretty metal container. It is so much easier to remove and clean the bucket within! This will allow the composter to last for years! I am so pleased, I bought one for my son and his wife, which they utilize: the 8 year old son is really into the science of watching fresh fruits and vegetables decompose back into "soil"! There is no odor, and we are very pleased with our purchase! I would recommend this product mainly for the facility of use and collecting our plant scraps as well as coffee grounds. We always add the decomposed compost when working with our plants and garden... AND, there are a lot of worms, so it has got to be good!
Phenomenal customer service and really great brand.
My wife & I loved the bin as soon as we saw it. Looks awesome in our kitchen!
Like the design. Internal plastic bucket is a plus and is 'hand' washable. Nice capacity. Kind of tall sitting on kitchen counter tho. Wish they offered internal plastic bucket on their other style that's same capacity and not as tall. Other than that, very pleased with my purchase.
I am so happy with this purchase! It sits nicely on the window ledge behind my sink. Super convenient for kitchen scraps and to easy to exchange the composting liners. Does not look like an eyesore trash bin and there is no odor.

This is the perfect little counter top compost bin. It comes with a filter, removable bucket and is odorless. I got the smaller size and it's just the right size for a counter top and looks great. Very nice bin.
Cute, and very pleased will all aspects. I don't want to add to what is already in other positive reviews. Just one thing to stress, the inner container is much smaller than the outer container, so if you are more than 2 ppl in the family, might be worth getting larger size if you cook fresh stuff. It fills up relatively quickly. I use compo-stable bags to keep things clean. No regrets, I really like this.
I was looking for a lazy bin so I didn't have to run everything out to the composter right away. I ordered this thinking I could set it outside the kitchen door but its super cute and compact, the plastic liner is easy to grip and clean and keeps any of the food scraps from touching the metal. I won't leave food in the kitchen for a long time, so I can't say much about smell control if you let scraps sit in the kitchen but, for my purposes, the filter is enough to prevent unwanted kitchen odors. I don't just have potato peels, eggs shells and strawberry ends in it, I also have coffee grounds but there's no odor coming from it at all. Its clean and contained well enough that I don't mind leaving it on the counter even though, when I ordered it, I thought that would be too gross. I'm very please with it and it makes it a lot easier to compost when you only have to trek to the back of the yard to toss in scraps once a day.
Good size. Removable insert. Filter in the lid.
Donna L. Hayes
It looks very nice and easy to use
Works great and looks great!
I love the look of this! It’s really cute but still the perfect size! It’s easy to use. I have had food scraps in it now for about three days and no smell
I needed a compost bucket for my kitchen and this fit the bill. I love the pattern on the side, the quality is excellent, and I can now compost! It's small, but that is what works for me.
Compost bin is a decent size and love the tree and coloring! No scent and it sits in my kitchen counter.
Would be again!
Really happy with this purchase. It’s really well made and looks so pretty on my counter. I love the removable pale that’s inside. I can carry this out to my compost bin and then just rinse out.
Would love a replacement!!! It looks great on my counter top but the lid doesn’t close, it stays up on two sides no matter how much we try to adjust it. Looking forward to be able to share the same great reviews others have. Seller feel free to contact me as I was not able to contact you thru Amazon.
This bin is exactly what I was looking for! The internal bin is easy to remove and carry out, and keeps the nice outer bin clean and not-banged-up. Love it!! Also, I scanned the WR code to register for the warranty, and the automated customer service responses were funny & upbeat - needed that smile today. Thanks, Third Rock!

Pleasant looking container for the kitchen counter. Appears to be small in size but holds a sizable amount from a family of four with food waste from three meals a day. No odor or mess when opening the container. Excellent purchase for my family.
I just started composting. I wanted something attractive to sit on our kitchen counter to remind me to save scraps instead of putting them in the garbage disposal or trash. Also I needed something to keep scraps until I can take them to our large composter outside. This really fits the bill. Very cute! Sturdy! Removable plastic bucket -with handle- inside to transport my scraps to the larger bin. Also protects the interior so it won't become rusty from moist scraps. The outer wood handles are very securely riveted in place. The charcoal filter is also well secured inside the lid. I could have bought a cheaper plastic counter composter but I'm so glad I didn't! The functionality and beauty of this one make it well worth the money.
Great item!! Made from quality materials!
Nice looking way to store scraps!
Love that I can grab the inside bucket to take out and empty, keeping the outside one clean. It doesn't fit a lot which is ok if you don't eat a lot of fresh vegetables. I empty mine once a week, imagine that will change once my garden comes in.
So far we love this and it seems to do the job. We started with the 1 gallon bin, because that seemed plenty big to me, but we have a family of six and we had it jammed packed in only about 2 days. I recommend the larger one- 1.3 gallon. I didn't know if it'd look way too big on the counter but it doesn't.
Seems great so far love the carbon to reduce smell and it’s adorable too!
I'm beginning my adventures in the composting and gardening world. I love this because it has an internal pail inside that you can remove when emptying it into the composter. I will also rinse the pail between trips outside so the bucket itself doesn't become too grody. Since the pail is smaller than the compost bucket, we empty it every other day at least. This also helps with the smell. I'm also proud to say that after using this for ~1month, we have had ZERO fruit flies and ZERO ants. The lid keeps all smells inside very well.
Conclusion: 10/10 would recommend. It's cute, goes with my kitchen decor, useful, and it does its job VERY well. Sometimes if I empty it, I'll keep the pail outside and use it to collect yard trimmings and brown leaves that I will also add.
I wish I had gone for one that's slightly larger, this is really for emptying every day, but that having said, it works great!
