    I have zero complaints about this compost bin, for which reason I am giving it five stars, because that’s how Amazon reviews work.However, based a couple of reviews that I’m reading now, I’m guessing that the main reason I’m pleased with this bin (apart from the fact that it performs its intended function perfectly well) is that I actually understand what a compost bin is and what composting involves. Here are some pointers, in case you are new to this:1. A compost bin is basically just a pot with a lid on it. If you are going to order this thing and then find yourself shocked when you receive what is basically just a pot with a lid on it in the mail (despite the numerous images on this page that clearly show what is basically a pot with a lid on it), then please just go buy a pot and save yourself the trouble of posting a really stupid review on Amazon that blames the product for the fact that you didn’t realize what a compost bin was.2. Composting involves taking your food scraps that would *otherwise be trash* and keeping them in a bucket (or a pot with a lid on it) in your kitchen. For this reason, it will *get dirty*, just like the rest of the items in your kitchen that come in contact with food. You will often have to *wipe it down* to remove the residue of whatever you put in it, *just like everything else in your kitchen*. Don’t let the term “compost bin” fool you into thinking that this product has the magical ability to self-clean. Remember that this is basically just a pot with a lid on it.3. Here’s the thing about food scraps: they break down over time. They even break down a bit over the course of a few days. Another word for this breakdown process is “rotting”. THIS IS WHY WE COMPOST THEM. If you leave your compost sitting on your counter for a week at a time, *it will start to smell*. DO NOT BLAME THE BIN – get off your lazy rump and go empty the dang thing. Would you keep your trash for a week if it was full of rotting food? NO. Honestly, a bin that will hold a week’s worth of scraps isn’t a good thing. A compost bin is not a panacea for all compost-related unpleasantness. If you don’t want your food scraps smelling on your countertop, but you also refuse to walk allllll the way to your compost bin more than once a week, then maybe composting isn’t for you. Which is fine, just don’t leave a three star review on Amazon once you figure that out.-Okay, done snarking. Here’s what I like about this bin:*It looks good on the countertop*It has a carrying handle, unlike your average pot with a lid on it*It is well-proportioned – tall enough to hold a good amount of stuff without having a huge footprint on the countertop, but not so tall that it tips over*I’ve had little to no problem with fruit flies, presumably because I have been careful to only remove the lid when I am putting stuff in the bin*It cleans easily*It is durable and unbreakableBasically, it does everything a compost bin should do, assuming you do not have ridiculous, uninformed, and mutually-incompatible expectations for how it will function.

    Much larger (the photo was small) than I imagined (about 10 inches tall) but it works out very well. Even after a week the charcoal filter keeps left over fruits, veggies and coffee grounds odorless.

  3. Shannon Albert

    It cleans up nicely, looks good on the counter, I don’t smell anything, and I feel good about filling up my organic waste bin. Mic drop.

  4. hannah westphall

    we’ve been using this for several months to hold our compost on the kitchen counter and I haven’t smelled a thing yet, even when we’ve accidentally let it sit for a couple weeks without emptying.it’s easy to clean out and doesn’t look annoying on the counter.

  5. Cathy D.

    Have not had a chance to use yet. The quality looks good. Was exactly what I was expecting.

  6. ceelaurene

    This works really well for my purposes. The charcoal filter seems effective for keeping odor down – there is basically no odor. Also no bugs, no gnats – nothing. It’s really great. – I ‘kind of’ wish it was a little “taller” so I could put more compost in it — but – being that I’m in an apartment (no yard) – It’s really the perfect size. It sits on my counter, no problem. Great footprint. (I wouldn’t want it to be “wider” – as it is, it doesn’t take up too much space).

  7. PortFanatic

    This is easy to clean. It’s the right size for us… not too big or too small. I bought one for my mother after using this for the last 6 months.

  8. Kathleen S. Cook

    The compost bin fits nicely under my kitchen sink. I have had no problems with odors coming from it. It is easy to clean. Works very well for daily kitchen use.

  9. John Williams

    My mom recommended this one
