My ice cream pails always cracked or broke just when you didn't want them to. What a mess. This is better, no smell either.
I seem to generate many scraps for composting. This really helps keep the mess to a minimum and is so easy to carry to the composter. I wish I had bought it many years before I did.
This was a gift for my mother and she absolutely loves it. She had previously used a coffee can and things would be messy and smelly. She now has this, the filters and the bags(compostable as well - awesome) and it works well. My daughter saw it and she would like one - great idea for Christmas. I may also be getting one as well.
I was tired of going out to the compost pile EVERY DAY. Here was a product that was not only good looking (plus RED...color of all my kitchen appliances) but would hold almost a week's worth of scraps. And no smell! Love it.
