Comments about Product: This product looks great and controls odor, which is the goal. However, the design has a big flaw, wherein when your bag is full and you attempt to pull it out, the bag rips because the neck of the jar is narrower than the bottom. As a result, you can't fill the bags very full, so the size of it isn't something you can use to the full extent.

Comments about Product: Top seal is not round, it's a poorly constructed lid and is slightly oblong in shape, so there is no seal on the main canister, letting flies in and smalls out, bad build quality. Also the handle was broken off at some point and glued back on.

Comments about Product: So cute and functional. Who would think composting could look so good?? It is the perfect size for my kitchen counter and oh so stylish. The bags do break as many other reviewers have said. A stronger bag would make it ideal and not necessitate cleaning the crock as often.

Comments about Product: The crock is capacious and looks handsome on the counter. However, as others have commented, the wide inner lip at the top makes it impossible to remove even a partially full liner bag. If you do not use a bag it is awkward and messy to clean under the lip. Also, quality control is lacking; on my crock one of the knobs was so small the handle would not stay on, and the other knob was so large that the handle just barely fit and would not turn at all. This item is made in China. I returned it, at my expense.
If you use the biodegradable bags, be aware that the bag starts to degrade as soon as anything wet, like coffee grounds or tea bags, is put in. After a day or two the bag drips when removed (if you manage to remove it all). Forget taking the bag alone out to the compost pile; the whole crock must be carried and the bag dumped and then removed. The bag does, however, make it easier to clean the crock.

nice but the bag is difficult to remove
Comments about Product: We use the crock for all our kitchen scraps, including potato peelings, coffee grounds, etc. The crock is convenient and very attractive sitting on the counter. I usually have the crock pretty full when I try to pull the bag out and the product in the crock gets stuck on the lip of the crock and the bag usually rips when I try to remove it. I now just take the entire crock to the composting bin and dump the stuff out and then pull the bag. I don't know the design of other crocks but I would definitely look for one without the lip the next time.

Good Concept with some design flaws
Comments about Product: I use this daily to hold all the fruit and veggie scraps we go through. I like the size and design. It's unobtrusive and appealing to leave on the counter. I haven't had any issues with smells or pests.
It gets full pretty quick and with 2 small kids, I cannot just run out to empty the bag and it usually ends up too full. The bags get torn easily or are totally non removable when filled to it's capacity because of the inner lip that holds the lid in place. The lid also gets a bit funky when full because its fit allows it to come into contact with the scraps. The handle does not rotate well which makes it awkward to carry.
For the price, it's a decent buy, but I would have preferred to spend the extra money towards the stainless steel one had I realized the flaws with this one.

very cute but flawed
Comments about Product: very cute and decorative on my counter (I have the blue) but when you try to empty with liners can't get it out w/out tearing the bag.

a Santa take back
Comments about Product: I loved the idea as a gift for my mom and master gardner dad but it was a dud to them. I think it was too large for their liking.

Comments about Product: As long as I turn it a certain way, you can't easily see the several outside glaze defects. I need to put some gum or something over the one inch glaze chip on the inside bottom to prevent any liquid from penetrating the clay. I thought that with the straight sides that I could pull the bag out more easily, but there is still a lip inside that it hangs up on. Overall, though, not bad.
