  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from An appreciated gift I bought this for my husband, which benefits me, too, because he was putting compost scraps in plastic grocery store bags; but now, this bucket is doing its job. No smells with the rubber sealer, and a lot fits in it. He empties it every day into the garden compost, so with style and function, we are doing our part to not waste veggie and fruit scraps.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Third Time's the Charm... Maybe Ordered this item online, when it arrived, I opened the box, pulled out the compost bucket, and noted that the inside plastic bucket was cracked at the bottom. The crack was almost the entire diameter of the bucket. I returned the item, and requested another. The second one arrived, and sure enough it was also cracked at the bottom of the inside bucket. Returned it and got a refund, but I really like this item and considering purchasing a third time. I am relatively new to Williams Sonoma, I have great products from there, but this is very disappointing.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Compost bucket My children gave me a gift certificate and I ordered this compost bucket. The seal keeps coming off and the metal handle is so poorly attached that it comes off in my hand when I pull out the inner bucket to empty. Totally disappointed in this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect little compost bucket I am very pleased with this - it's the right size and the design is cute and unobtrusive. It cleans up well. Best of all, it seals well and I have had not problems with odors. Great value. before this, I had a more expensive ceramic compost bucket with a charcoal filter. Smelly and produced fruit flies immediately.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smelly gasket and pail The gasket has a smell that I cannot neutralize. The liner pail is a great idea, but it also has an odor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compost Make Simple from Counter I love this bucket because it holds a full days worth of composting peelings and grounds and the top fits tightly so there is no odor! Very helpful to us new to composting!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Compost Bin I purchased this item about two months ago. It is well designed and I like its vintage styling. The seal around the lid keeps the bin airtight and prevents odors from seeping out. I like it so much that I just bought another one as a gift for a friend. I'd like to address a few things -- The color is much cooler than pictured, but still neutral, not green as another reviewer remarked. I would call this a 'dusty' beige, as if there is some gray mixed in. I like the color much more than the one in the image. The hue presented in the product shot is much more yellow. Additionally, in regard to how the lid fits the item: it is not flush with the top of the bucket; it is in fact, about an inch lower. It rests just above the shorter interior bucket. (I suppose it was photographed this way for aesthetics but it's not accurate. It still has no impact on the functionality of the item.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Size, Perfect Style One of the reviews commented on how small it was. Personally I think it is the perfect size for my counter. It would stand out if it was much bigger. Also, I am able to put 4 days worth of food in before I take it out to the compost bin. It would start to smell if you did much more anyway. I also like the vinage style, as it fits with out decore. Another handy feature is the removable and washable plastic liner bucket. Recommended.
