Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kitchef Fell apart when shipped to store
I really wanted this bamboo kitchen compost bucket to work, but when at the store for pick-up, the box looked damaged, and when the clerk opened it, the bucket had a crack going down the length of one side. When he took it out of the box, it cracked on the other side! It is apparently made by gluing together two curved sections of veneered bamboo. Unfortunately, it failed on this one, and in looking at other non-Home Depot reviews of the same product, others have had the same problem. I hope the mfg figures out how to fix it, because the function and look are exactly what I wanted. I'm still looking for the perfect kitchen compost pail!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JJB2115 Exactly what we were looking for
The pail looks good on the counter. Since the plastic insert comes out for the trip to the compost bin, the bamboo stays clean.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Darr Lighter than the ceramic ones, easier to use
Replaced a broken ceramic kitchen compost pail with this one. Significantly lighter and the plastic liner makes dumping the contents in the garden compost pile easier and cleaning it up is trivial. Bit pricey for a bamboo pail with a plastic liner but is not out of line with other steel and ceramic compost pails
