I have had three different bins over the years. This seems to be the best one. I like the way the inside container fits in the outside one, less apt to get stuck.
It’s missing part of the label when it arrived, but it’s doing what it’s designed to do, and I love it!
Very pleased with this product, especially the look of it sitting on the kitchen island!
The only issue I had with it, is that I ordered the filter refill pack for the 1-gallon compost bin, hoping they would fit the 1.3 gallon bin, which was not the case. However this was a mistake on my part, so I really have no complaints about this product, which I ordered to give to my daughter. So, I do plan on ordering the smaller compost bin for myself, so I will be able to put the filters that I bought to use. I probably should have given this product a 5-star rating, instead of 4.

I like this compost container a lot because it has an inner bucket that I can empty and wash and hopefully that will keep the outer container from picking up odors. It is also cute and looks fine on my kitchen cabinet. My only regret is that I did not order a larger container because this one only holds one or two days of composting material so I have to empty it frequently. Unless you are just one person and don't produce a lot of composting scraps, I definitely recommend getting the larger one. The shipping was quick, it arrived within a few days, which was nice.
It's simply perfect and exactly what we needed!
I love that the inner bucket can be lifted out and carried to my compost bins. It is then easily rinsed and returned to the very attractive outer bucket. There is no smell due to the filter. It is exactly what I have been looking for.
I only wish I had ordered the larger size! I love my compost bin for inside on my kitchen counter!
Great compost bin! Looks nice on my counter and the charcoal filter keeps out any odor! Highly recommend!
Perfect size for next to the kitchen sink. Absolutely no orders escape. Very pleased.
I really like my compost bin I just wish it was a true gal for the compost material to go into
Hi i really love the compost container and it also looks good on my counter top. I just wished i had ordered the larger size.
We live in a rural historic school house (circa 1899). The main kitchen is quite large and we have a floor compost bin that we empty into our outdoors tumbler a couple times a week. The farmhouse countertop pail is just what we needed for daily accumulation of coffee grounds, egg shells and banana peels to we put straight into the gardens. It is attractive and just the perfect size (3.5 gal).
It shipped quickly and the quality is great. I am very happy with my purchase and I will be ordering more for gift giving.
Perfect size, weight and style!!
It looks exactly like it does online, nice size for counter top, insert is easy to remove so it can be emptied. It’s perfect!
I love my new compost bin! It’s not stinky. Very easy to clean! Convenient!
My daughter wants one now.
Wish I would have got the larger one.
Great! Finally, keeps all the compost mess neat and tidy--thanks Third Rock!
LOOKS GREAT ON COUNTER AND NO ODER
So cute on the counter. I keep close to fill as I’m chopping veg; not too big. Easy bucket removal when full. I love it and am purchasing more as gifts.
Perfect addition to my farm style kitchen!
I juice and drink chicory with coffee. Luv my lil bucket! So easy to emty and clean the lil bucket insert bucket also no leaks. Thank you....
Such a cute addition to my counter space. I use it to collect eggshells and coffee grounds to put on my garden. I may get the bigger one if I decide to compost vegetable and fruit peelings. The plastic bucket inside is perfect to slip out and haul to the garden. I love it.
This canister is attractive and has no odor from the fruit/veggie trimmings. I like being able to collect the (used to be tossed) kitchen waste, and it is easy to take out to the compost area.
After buying one for myself, I bought one for my mom as well. We both love it. No odor, no fruit flies, No Complaints! It's really cute too, so I don't mind having it sit on the counter.
This is so much better than the bowl I had sitting on my counter, but even the large one, isn’t quite big enough. I have to empty it often.
This compost bucket is by far the nicest I've found - I love that it's metal (no breakable stoneware), and has a plastic insert to take the scraps to the bin (keeps the outer bucket clean, and the plastic insert is super easy to wash), and the lid fits snugly without fiddling (far nicer than the pea-green, bumply, fiddly bokashi bucket it replaces) and above all it's cute as a button. Well done!
Came in a few days. Love it
I had a smaller garbage can sitting on the countertop for scraps for our compost pile. Saw this on Facebook and ordered it right away. It is a great size and I love the fact that you can just lift out the inside bucket instead of taking the whole thing outside.
This compost bin is so cute we keep it right up on the counter. The size is perfect for collecting your scraps without taking up a large amount of counter space and the filters keep that icky waste smell from creeping into your room!
I love my compost bin! There’s no smell at all and it holds a lot; don’t have to empty it very often
For many years I had an old plastic 5-lb. coffee container (spray painted black) sitting on my counter for our scraps. It was hard to clean and hard to carry as there was no handle. I was delighted to see your pail for sale. I love that the inner pail has smooth sides for easy cleaning and a handle to carry to our compost pile. With the charcoal filter in the lid, there is no odor and it looks so much better than that old black plastic coffee container.
It looks great in my kitchen and the food scrapings do not make the house smell
I love the look and the inner plastic pail is great to carry stuff to the compost pile. The filters work well also, no odor emanating from the container.
Charcoal filter does work well but it is relatively small I ordered the one gallon with the handle, photos in the advertising are a little deceiving on the size of
Love my compost bin. It looks so much better than the left-over plastic food container I was using. The 1 gallon size fits wonderfully between the countertop and the window shelf. The plastic liner makes it easy to empty and to keep clean. The lid fits snug but not too tight. The charcoal filter in the lid keeps the smells out of the house. And best of all the veggie peels, egg shells, and coffee grounds help get nutrients back into the garden instead if the landfill. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Love,love this product. Clean,stylish,convenient with no smell as long as you don't add meats and dairy ( should never do that anyway )
Love that I can take it out back once a week and just dump it into the big outside composting bin.
Going to buy these with a box of extra filters as gifts for friends and family.
Should’ve gotten the bigger one. But I LOVE IT! So much better than a bowl .
Supper cute, fits my farm house look perfectly. Great size, no oder! I love it!
I really wish it was bigger, it got filled up so fast, it'd be better as a bigger container for me.
I like it, wish the lid fit tighter.
I will be moving in a few months and bought this to take along. I dont plan on using until then.
It arrived as ordered and I anxiously wait to use it.
I adore my compost pail! Checkout experience was great. Arrived quickly! No issues whatsoever and I have an adorable compost bin. I needed it so much! Great to find someone offering this product.
Great little composter! Cute and no smell :)
No odor. Fits perfectly on my countertop! Perfect size!! Thank you!!!
Greatest item I've gotten so far for composting. Love how cute it is,and super convenient sitting on the counter where I prepare our food.
Very easy ordering , serves as a chicken scraps container. Wife lives it , keeps a handy inner bucket covered. Outstanding response to rural delivery mishap; They made it right.
Very esthetically pleasing!!!
The compost bin is exactly what I expected. It's the perfect size for our counter and looks nice. Very functional. I'm so please with it!
Love my new compost bin, good quality. We have a large garden so I needed this bin for my kitchen to save all my scraps for our large compost pile. PLUS their customer service is the BEST. The liner arrived cracked and they were on it to send a replacement. Very fast friendly service
Surprised at how quickly we fill it up! We empty it every three days and I feel good that all that organic stuff is going back into our garden instead of the landfill. It’s convenient and looks cool on the counter. I highly recommend this product.

It’s the perfect size. I love that the inner bucket comes out. It keeps everything much cleaner.
Have not received this yet!
Perfect compost bucket for on the counter. Have needed this for years!
It’s the perfect size, and cute on my counter.
I love how it looks on my kitchen counter. There is no smell at all from the contents and I like being able to take the inner pail out to my composter. Very satisfied with it. Bought one for my daughter too and she loves hers as well.
Well, sometimes you order something and blown away by the quality, sometimes the service goes far above what one usually runs into, very rarely do you get both. Thats what we have here. Also what a great gift!! The perfect nudge a person needs to do a garden. My shopping decisions are done for the year. Great job!!!

Nice with my kitchen
Love the look and the size its not too big to overwhelm my counter and not too small where i have to constantly empty it out. Works just great for me!
I previously had a ceramic compost bin, which eventually broke, and then used a plastic container. It worked fine, but looked unsightly and couldn’t be cleaned well. This container is attractive, and I love the inner very cleanable container! We’ve been composting since 1970, don’t know how to live without it, and I love anything that makes it possible and easier! Great product!
Great size, looks great!
I love this compost bin. Def larger then I was expecting, but that is a good thing.
Truly love this! For years just had been using a colander.
When I saw this I knew I had to have it. Am very pleased !
Quality made and looks great on the counter with the smelly stuff safely inside!
I like my composter. But I need filters, how can I get them?
I wish it came with a few compostable bags but other than that it is perfect.
It was a gift. The recipient loved it!
I didn't know I'd have to buy filters for it
This was a Christmas gift. He liked it. Looks nice on the counter
workd great small enough for the counter
I just started composting and love my new container. It looks great and has a charcoal filter to block any odors!
This is a great product. Looks great on my counter. Easy to use and keep clean. Easy to carry. Thank you
It’s great, easy to clean. Looks so neat. Wish I had it years ago.
This is a great product for the kitchen. The inside bucket is easy to clean so I do not line it with a compostable bag. The filter ensures that there is no smell (until you open the lid). No flies hover around it.
My only regret is that I did not purchase the bigger bucket. Once you start composting, you'll find the bucket fills quickly.
The size of this compost bin is perfect for the counter. Easy to move when cutting up vegetables!
Looks attractive and holds a good amount.
works great keeps the fruit flies down...
So far the best bin I have used. I bought an all plastic one not long ago, and it soaked up so much scent from the compost, i had to through it away. It attracted more fruit flies than ever. This one, is worth the money. Seems to help keep flies out, scent in and looks nice on the counter too. i think the only type that beats this one is a stainless tell, with no plastic insert.

Attractive, simple, easy-to-clean, this has an inner plastic pail with a metal handle which pulls out of the unit to empty into a compost bin. The pail can then be washed by hand or in the dishwasher. It is a nice addition to our kitchen.
We love this compost bin! Perfect size for your counter. We take it out about every 2 days. Zero smelling. We love the Ziploc brand compost bags with this. 10/10 would recommend.
Love this counter compost. Perfect size for the counter and doesn’t look out of place. Lid fits a little loose, but it appears completely sealed so no issues. Great value.
My husband bought this for me after my second ceramic compost bin broke. I love it! This is so much easier to clean. It's metal so no breaking. And it's a bit bigger than the typical ceramic kind, so that helps. We compost a lot because I have a big garden. This bin works wonderfully. No smell either.
I just started composting and am going for it. I have a 65gal bin outside and this little baby in my kitchen. I'm a vegetarian and have in-laws that have a large garden--I'm the lucky recipient of many, many, many, many, many, many vegetables during the summer months. I was realizing that so much of my garbage was just sh*t I could compost! Duh! So anyhoo, I got this because I'm not just going to throw the compostables in some old to-go container and have that sit on my counter. I need fashion. I need class. I need something that tells me what's in it. So, I ordered this. I actually love it and it fits with my decor. I think I'll get made fun of just as much as the rustic "Kitchen" sign I have hanging in the...you guessed it...kitchen. Just in case you forget where you are. It's 2020 folks...having a little extra help here and there doesn't hurt.
This is just what I was looking for. The best feature is the plastic bucket insert. It is easy to remove the bucket, dump the food, wash, and replace. All the while, the metal pale stays clean.
Previously we had been using our freezer and paper bags, but that system was taking up valuable real estate in our small fridge.
The bucket does fill up quickly, but that's not a big deal.
There is no smell at all and I am curious to see how long the carbon filter lasts.
Great product so far. No odor or fruit flies. Also looks pretty on the counter!
I’m extremely unhappy with my purchase if i could give it 0 stars i would. I contacted the seller about their design malfunction and have not heard back. The lid does not close properly due to the inadequate Cutting of the bin inside. The pictures do you show that the Black Ridge is supposed to be completely around the edge and that Village is supposed to go on top however when you put the lid on only specific sections of the black bin or in a circle. So doing this means that the bin does not close all the way and that’s not concealed tightly. Super unhappy don’t waste your money.
Looks great, handle just keeps popping off which can leave an awful mess. Now have to return to get a different one. Company’s Facebook page is not very responsive so don’t bother contacting them there.
Item looks good on the counter top, better than the plastic bowl and plate to cover I was using. Handles make it easy to take outside to the compost bin. It is a bit smaller and not as sturdy as I had hoped. The lid seems to not quite fit tightly, and gnats/fruit flies still get in and out. I put a plastic bag over to keep them at bay.
Great company- quality product! My lady thinks it’s cute- and that’s a silver lining when it comes to composting.
This is so cute on my kitchen counter and goes well with my decor. The charcoal filter is a must, remember to purchase refills. My only complaint is the metal handle of the outer can keeps popping out on the left side; annoying, but easily pops back in.
I've had several different counter top compost bins and this is by far the best. It's light, cute, closes well and the pull out bucket cleans up a charm. Love the size. Most of them are just way too small to be useful. Highly recommend.

Fits any kitchen decor. Easily removable liner for emptying and cleaning. Replaces the old can we used for a while. Love the charcoal filters! Vented to keep any unwanted insects from hanging around. A definite must purchase for composting.

first time I saw this compost kitchen container was on our recent vacation in a Cape Cod Airbnb ..loved it. We didn't have to empty until the 4th day. There was 4 adults in the house. I couldn't wait to get home and order one. I love the fact it has a liner bucket inside so the actual container doesn't get dirty but should be cleaned . The best part is no smell..They have a charcoal filter in the lid. They suggest to replace every 6-8 weeks so I also purchased those. In the past I just used a plastic container and would empty into compost bucket on porch every couple of days and then in summer months the fruit flies came around. I just think this is the cutest compost container out there.Just wish it was made in USA...

Great compost bucket!
It looks nice on our counter top. Easy to carry out back to the compost area.
I just received this. Love the size and how it looks! I have a lot of kitchen scraps so the size seems perfect!
Very nice size and love the charcoal filter.
We specifically got a compost bin to keep fruit flies out of our trash can. Very disappointed when this came and was not airtight.
This product is functional it comes with the filter that you can buy over and over again. really liked it
We love our kitchen compost pal. There is no order, and we empty it every 2-3 days outside in our large compost.
