Rated 4 out of 5 by jimAtFirst from Works well. Over the years, I have had two of these from Lee Valley (identical product). Both succumbed to cracking where the lip hangs over the screws. I think was due in large part to people smashing down the contents rather than empty the bin. I love the under the cabinet feature. Very little smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LisaC from Convenient. Just what I needed. This pail is the perfect size for collecting food scraps and coffee grounds - and, it keeps the fruit flies away. It fits conveniently right under my sink.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Buddy10 from Extremely poorly made. Don't waste your money!!!! Wished I'd never bought or wasted my time ordering it. Burpee refunded money I had paid for it as well as 3 packs of filters. I advised them to take it off the market, of course you can see they didn't. Not worth the powder to blow it apart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jjoer from Compost Helper Hi. Have used this little helper for 2 years now. I like to line it with a small grocery store-type plastic bag . I throw my egg shells in the can(To grind up later) , and all manner of fruit and vegetable scraps. When added to my smaller sized composter , it all breaks down to a beautiful compost in the Spring and also excellent compost tea that does more for my plants than ANY store bought plant food . I wondered about any odors that might come from the compost pail but there isn't any because of the charcoal filter that has lasted for 2 years. ( IF YOU OPEN THE PAIL TOP AND HAVE SCRAPS FROM 3 DAYS AGO YOU'LL SMELL THE VEGETABLES, BUT ONLY BECAUSE THE TOP WAS OPENED).Otherwise it's been odorless closed with the filter. Being in New York with limited space, I like to keep outside the deck slider doors after utilizing it in the kitchen after meals. Great little device for someone with a smaller gardening space. Very durable, sturdy after opening and closing the top 400 imes or more .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rusty from Strong & Practical I just love this compost pail, which sits under my kitchen sink. While not as cute as the bamboo pail I received as a gift (which didn't last 5 months), this sturdy plastic pail holds up to a week's worth of food scraps. without any smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GoatFarmer from Kitchen Compost Pail LOVE LOVE LOVE this compost pail. I put absolutely EVERYTHING in it. NO ODOR! I've even waited several days to take it outside to the outdoor compost with no odor. Must be sure to replace the filters but they even last longer than a month. SO if you are undecided...go for it! You will be glad you bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DreamingOfAutumn from Keeps out odors and fruit flies! This compost bin is great. It's the perfect size for 1 day of kitchen scraps. The cover and filter do a great job of keeping out odors. Before I got this bin I was just using a large bowl, and I kept getting fruit flies. I haven't seen one in my kitchen since I started using this. Wonderful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fisher from Very Handy This product is everything as advertised. Elimates all odors. I can verify that because everytime the lid is opened to add additional scraps to it the odor from the contents hits me right in the face :-) Very handy and attractive enough for me to leave it on the kitchen counter before moving the pail's contents to my backyard bin. I would highly recommend this product to the home garden composter.
