My stainless compost pot sits on the kitchen counter within easy reach of either of our 6 family members. The 1.5 size lasts us for a few days without having to empty it (squish it down to make more room in the pot). I am thrilled it eeks no odors! It is nice to look at too! Now if it could walk out to our compost pile and turn itself, that'd be awesome. VERY PLEASED!

I thought this would be a good way to throw out food items, put them in a compost bin after 3-4 days. But at day 3 there wew so many gnats in the kitchen I put up fly strips and placed the crock under the sink. Two days later when I went to empty it (we were using the liners as well) there were maggots all over the lid, it the air filter, and all around the inside. I am moving this out side where it will stay, it kind of dedeats the purpose of getting it. We wanted some where close to throw bio garbage away.

Comments about Plowhearth Stainless Steel Compost Crocks:
I keep my stainless steel compost crock right on the counter where I peel and prepare veggies, that I put the scraps directly into (the crock). I particularly like the liner bags that came with the crock, as they make taking out to our outdoor compost pile a breeze!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I saw comments about the bags that it comes with and they must have changed them cause the quality of the bags are good. Not flimsy and carried lots of scraps to the composter.
It works for us!

About Me Casual Cook
We keep it on the kitchen counter. The stainless steel matches our appliances, so it works for me. My husband loves the handle,he carries it right to the mulch pile for easy dumping. It holds quite a bit and there is no unpleasant odor. Haven't had it that long, so I can't comment on the filter life as yet.
from Chambersburg, PA
The ceramic compost crock is great as looks so nice sitting in my sink and very convenient to put in the food that I want to compost. It is much better than the unsightly plastic bag that I used before ... the disposable bags inside make it easy to keep clean. The only problem that I have is that the knob on the top is hard to grasp as it short. Other than that it is an excellent product.
Making compost attractive...

is difficult at best. The Stainless Steel compost container with filter in the lid is great! Every kitchen should have one.
Great Compost Bucket!
By Maggie the chef
from Moore, SC
I love this compost bucket and bags. I do not find the bags flimsey. But I do take the whole bucket out and dump it. I am not diligent about empting my compost and I have no odor. The filter works great! The lid is a little difficult to clean but the bucket itself is easy to clean. Bag does not get stuck. Holds a lot.

Poorly constructed compost crock
from Los Osos, CA
Unfortunately, I had to send the stainless steel compost crock back. It had a rounded bottom and wouldn't sit flat on the counter. Also, it was too large for our counter space.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
inferior compost bags
from medford, oregon
I love my P&H crock!! Hate the new bags. These rip by just looking at them. The former bags were far superior. I will not buy these again. P&H -- I will buy your bags if you stock a better quality product.

Stainless Steel Compost Crock
from Annville, PA
I have been using this product for about 9 months. I loved it until the rim of the lid starting cracking and no longer fits on the crock.

Sweet Smell of Success
from Whitman MA
This is a needed item for the composting bin..this particular brand was a little different than the ones I have used in the past. Two large squares where the other ones were round (a little bit easier to place in cover of container)..Otherwise they're fine ..works like they 're suppost to..
Got the job done
I actually have a different, smaller compost bin, but I couldn't find the size I needed. I was able to cut these down to the right size very easily, and they're doing the job nicely.

I purchased the bags to use with my kitchen compost crock. I expected to be able to use the bag as a liner and then just pull it out and compost. However, the bags are so thin that they tear just taking them out of the box. I love the idea of biodegradable but it just didn't hold up to the task.
Perfect for going green!

I used the ceramic compost pot for several years. I accidently broke it and bought this one. This is even better than the ceramic one. I love it!
Not happy with these new bags!

These new compostable bags are so flimsy they tear apart just trying to separate them from the roll. What a waste! The bags you had previously were MUCH better!
By J the composter
from barberton OH
Use product in kitchen compost pot. Currently sold bags compost quickly but are a too flimsy, tear easily when trying to separate from roll and tear when removing from pot. Previously sold bags were stronger but did not compost as quickly. Compost pot design also faulty--larger at bottom than and tear bags in removing them from pot.J the

from Atlanta GA
I loke this composter better than the previous ceramic one I had -- more capacity, just as easy to empty and to clean (if not easier),and it blends in with all the other stainless steel in my kitchen. It works and I like the design -- what more can you ask for?
from Basking Ridge NJ
I was dissapointed that these bags ripped so easily. I guess that makes them easier to compost. I liked the idea of just throwing out the entire content of the crock without dumping out a messy bag. These don't hold up while collecting scraps.
bags are a waste, literally
from Central MA
About Me Getting Started
These bags are a horrible. I'm glad I only bought one box. They tear too easily and it seems like they actually start to biodegrade in the canister, before they make it to the composte pile, leaving a mess.
does the job
I've had it for about 6 months. Does the job I bought it for. Sometimes I forget to empty it on a regular basis. By the time I remember, it smells pretty bad in there. I'm happy to say, the odor stays inside the canister. The bags are a waste. They tear too easily. I've stopped using them and just scrub it after each emptying. The only real complaint about the canister, is the lid. The seam around the inside of the lid has begun to open. Nothing a hammer won't fix.
Disappointed in Biodegradable Bags
By Patty R.
from Wilmington, DE
More times than not the second bag rips when I pull apart at the perforation. I try to be gentle, but have still ripped into the second bag and made it unusable. Very disappointed since I am only able to use about 2/3 of box due to how easily bags have ripped.

About Me Master Gardener
The product is great. It makes disposal of my kitchen waste very easy. I just pull out the bag and take it to my compost site and that is it. My compost jar stays nice and clean.
By The Mom
I was disappointed in this product. I thought it would be a great solution to making composting easier; however the bag breaks very easily spilling contents before you can get it outdoors to the compost area! The bags were pricey, and since they don't get the job done, they are NOT worth the price.
Could be the worst designed product ever
from Raleigh NC
Once you fill the pot, you cannot get the bag out without ripping it apart. The top opening is smaller than the base, so when you try to lift out a bag full of kitchen scraps, it gets stuck. Quite annoying. This could be the worst designed product ever sold. It is dysfunctional and essentially unuseable.
Stainless steel = perfection
By Two retirees
from Rocky Mount, VA
Kitchen scraps are easily collected in stainless steel container and this is the best part, the straight sides make it soooo easy to remove the scraps without tearing the biodegradable bags. No mess, no odor, no more searching for a suitable compost container for our kitchen. We've tried a plastic and a ceramic, urn-shaped one, but this is the one for us!
Thin bags - rip easily
from Roanoke, VA
Bought two boxes of these but wish we'd only gotten one. We have a small trashcan that we use for composting. We keep it under the sink and decided to get these bags to keep the liner clean. THese bags are very thin - they rip easily when you remove them from the box and tear off one, and then if the bag gets too full/heavy, it tears when you are taking it to the composter.
from Greenville, SC
These compost bags are convenient, because they keep me from having to clean my container as often, but out of the first 3 I have used, 2 have torn when I was getting them out of the box. I know they have to be thin to break down easily, but these are very weak.
from Sandwich, MA
Design is poor. The opening/top is smaller in diameter than the crock. So when full, the bag can not be removed easily...it usually breaks.
I like it
