No need to worry about smells as the compost pail has a lid that contains refillable carbon filters. Holds 0.5 gal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product - Easy to clean and looks great on the counter! Fill it up and add to compost outside. Buying one for all we know who wants easy from kitchen to their compost. January 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good choice for a small family. Looks nice on the counter top; it's smaller than I thought it would be but we empty it every other day and that works out for the two of us. I would recommend it for a small family. The quality seems very good and there are no odors. November 5, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice LITTLE Pail My bad for not paying attention to the .5 gal part of the description. The pail is much smaller than it looks in the picture. That said, it looks good on the counter and I like the fact that it's vented and has a filter February 13, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Smaller than expected It is a lot smaller than I expected, but so far the odor control feature seems to be working well. July 31, 2012
