Good Concept with some design flaws

Comments about Plowhearth Lattice Ceramic Compost Crock:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

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.

Frustrating to use
The narrowing of the top is makes it very difficult to empty. If the items are bulky or it is more than half full it is a tug on the green composing bag and a rip.

I was nothing in the pkg to explain how to use the product, and the bags. I was using it for non-protein perishable items, (peels, cores) and fruit flies started to be attracted to it. I then put it outside, and the smell was horrible. So I do like the jar itself, but instructions should come with it.
Looks really nice on the countertop!
I was concerned that there would be odors from the contents and that it might attract insects but that is not a problem! The only negative is that when the liner is full it is difficult to get it out. The top of the container design is not straight but curved.

Pretty and Practical
from San Francisco, CA
Use the container for compostibles. It's very attractive on the kitchen counter. Cobalt blue matches perfectly with decor. It's heavy, sturdy and a good size. Much nicer than others we've purchased. Use green compost bags inside and keeps container clean. Only con is that after the bag is full, it's really tough to get it out re: top rim is narrower than the container itself. Understand that to keep a nice tight seal and odors out that it has to be this way but it's a real struggle to get the full bag out without ripping it.
