It's pretty...and pretty uselessJul 16, 2009
I'd venture to guess that anyone giving this product a 5-star review hasn't owned it for very long. While it is beautiful to look at, and bamboo is one of Earth's most renewable natural resources, this pail is a waste of money. It is composed of narrow strips of bamboo glued together, meaning there are plenty of seams just waiting to burst. For my pail, that took about two months of light use. Suddenly, one of the seams separated, and it's extremely difficult to glue back together properly. Also, the plastic holding the charcoal filter against the bottom of the lid broke free after about two or three weeks, so every time I lift the lid, the filter falls out.
In this instance, bamboo is not the better choice. Do yourself a favor and buy stainless steel. What good is a renewable resource if it winds up in the landfill after minimal use?

Nice looking but broke right away nothing worked but inner plastic pailJan 04, 2010
By Beverly B. Ferguson
Liked the way this looked and so I bought it but within a short time the bamboo around the inner container split apart, the bamboo bottom separated and the top, as other reviewers have stated, comes apart and doesn't fit back together again.
In the end all that works is the inner plastic pail....worth a dollar - not $41.94 with tax. Great concept very poor execution. I asked for a refund in less than a year and the company refused. Don't buy this pail unless you want to end up with the inner plastic pail only.

The Worlds Best Self-destructing Compost PotMar 09, 2011
Do not waste your money and time on this product, you might as well just throw forty bucks in the compost pile. I have come to the conclusion that this (albeit beautiful-looking, and perhaps well-intentioned) compost pot was actually constructed to self-destruct upon use. The bamboo glue is the main culprit, but also of note is the flimsy plastic "bucket" insert that actually holds the compost. As someone who generally likes to spend their money once and put in a little upkeep maintenance if necessary, I gave this product two months of faithful use: the bamboo top split after two weeks, a week later the thin plastic container cracked along the entire side, two weeks after that the bamboo side split, and finally this evening I lifted the pot up and lo and behold the pot went up but its bamboo base remained on the counter. I'm going for stainless steel this time.

Very disappointedJun 28, 2009
By D. Sears
I bought this for my kitchen and was initially pleased with it's appearance. I was soon greatly disappointed. The filter area wouldn't stay on the lid so I was trying to hold it together upon opening and closing. I was dealing with this then because of the lid issues it wasn't thoroughly closing. This resulted in a fruit fly infestation in my house. I am now keeping it in my garage so I can use it but not have bugs in my house, but this completely defeats the purpose of this purchase...

Nice idea, poor execution, what a cheat!Jun 12, 2011
By Vegan's mom
Boy, I wish I'd read the reviews here before ordering!
We bought two at the same time.
They are very nice to look at.
But they are ridiculously poorly made.
The lid-plate that holds the charcoal filter began dropping out when the lid was picked up in the first week, and when we opened the second one, we found it had no handle.
Now that I have read the reviews, I'm really, really sorry to have bought them.
