LARGE STURDY DESIGN –This compost bucket for the kitchen is made from strong stainless steel and the bucket is constructed out of one piece. Will not crack like a ceramic compost crock. No nasties leached into your compost. The knobs and handle are both made out of metal. Designed to last! Generous 1.3 gallon size makes it large enough for a few days worth of scraps. ODORS ARE OUT – With the double charcoal filter system, bad smells are trapped and filtered in the compost bin lid, ensuring your kitchen smells clean and fresh.

Filters last up to 6-12 months depending on use!
