  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Compost Pail All purpose counter top compost pail that handles a lot of waste without odor due to the charcoal filters. The liner bags keep the pail clean and neat.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from no replacement charcoal filters William Sonoma no longer stocks the charcoal filters for the lid. This renders the product nothing more than a tin can after the filters stop working

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Compost Pail We had this bucket for 2 years and really liked it. Unfortunately, it started to rust on the bottom and leaking. At first, my husband thought it was from the kitchen sink, until he experienced the leak first hand. Really too bad, it so cute and a good size.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Last - Cheap Steel As someone else has stated, the metal is cheap. Had the pail for about two years, taken care of it and it started leaking a couple of months ago. There are two pin holes in hte bottom. Expected better.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap China Steel I was happy with this pail until tonight when I discovered a pin hole in the bottom. I've only had the pail about year and am very disappointed. I've taken good care of the pail, rinsing or washing it out on a daily basis and keeping it dry. Stainless steel should last a very, very long time. I have heard others talk about how the steel made in China is very cheap and they are right. I will not be buying another one of these pails.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from terrific kitchen compost pail I got this as a gift for a friend, and she has told me that she loves it. It's nicer looking than many others she's seen, and the quality is excellent.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from great size, poor material This was a wedding gift though we registered for the white enamel, we received the stainless steel bin. The size was great, it fit under the counter and could be used for a week or so (2 adults in house) until contents made it to the compost in the yard. We used it for 2 months, and rust began to show up on the sides and bottom of the pail. I returned it last weekend and the store associate began to try to scrub off the rust, she was not able to scrub away the rust and accepted my return. Off to find a new one.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the design..too bad it will leak After one year, the bottom of the pail will develop pin holes. Too bad, beautiful design, no smell, nice size. Funny, I may buy again, but I know it has a short life! I did caulk the bottom, and that has helped seal the holes.
