Good productby Gillian

5 stars out of 5

OXO Good Grips® Compost Bin

Looks OK on my window sill, plastic so it doesn't scratch the surface. No filters or bags needed, lid fits well so no smells escape yet it's easy to lift with a finger when your hands are full. Smooth inside so easy to clean - no awkward corners. Lid pulls off to make it easy to empty and clean. Very happy with this product, glad I chose it.

Tried most of the compost pots and this is the bestby Claire

5 stars out of 5

OXO Good Grips® Compost Bin

I have gradually worked may way through all the compost pots here over the years. The metal ones eventually rust and parts drop off inside. The ceramic ones are pretty but the lids are easily cracked chipped and broken. This one has a lid which clips on and comes safely away and is easy to empty. It washes easily and is the is the least smelly one. No need for compost smell filters either. Don't bother with the others....

Great Designby Claire

OXO Good Grips® Compost Bin

Bought this to replace one of the powder-coated steel bins which, although more attractive, had some issues. This has been a brilliant buy. It's large enough to hold a few days' compost waste, but doesn't take up too much worksurface. The lid lifts up easily and stays up out of the way so you don't need to use 2 hands. Less condensation seems to form than on the metal one and that that does stays on the lid rather than dripping on the work surface. It's sturdily made and dishwasher safe. Great design all round.

Great, but mine have discolouredby Mary

OXO Good Grips® Compost Bin

We have two of these. One is for the council food waste bag, the other is for worm food (veg scraps). They're a good size - I wouldn't want them bigger as this kind of waste goes smelly after a couple of days. I really like these for the design, cleanability, colour etc. One down side, ours have discoloured in the sun - they're on a south facing windowsill. I'd still recommend them and would buy again, as in every other way they're exactly right for the job.

Quality compost caddyby Mr Hibbs

5 stars out of 5

OXO Good Grips® Compost Bin

I initially thought this was a Joseph Joseph product as it's colour and style matches other items I have from them. Having never heard of the OXO brand before can I say that the quality of this item is exceptional and the price a bargain. Looks great, holds lots, cleans easily. A great purchase for any composter. Five stars from me!

Lovely, but very smallby Ruth

4 stars out of 5

OXO Good Grips® Compost Bin

Our local council has started collecting domestic food waste (to produce biogas & fertiliser - marvelous), and has provided every household with a black plastic kitchen caddy. But it's moulded with loads of ridges and crannies which collect bits of food, and make cleaning the caddy a bit of a palaver. This bin, with its smooth lines and removable lid, looks like it should be much easier to keep clean. And the white/green colour is a lot more attractive than the council's black caddy. But do check the stated dimensions - it's a lot smaller than my existing caddy (2.8 rather than 7 litres).

OXO Good Grips® Compost Bin

I have various receptacles for veggy peelings etc for onward journey to our compost heap, none of which have been particularly successful, either filters were needed, broke easily or not easy to clean. At last one that is low maintenance and also looks good. So pleased with it have ordered one for our caravan too! Great product thank you.

OXO Good Grips® Compost Bin

I think the product is OK, it's not as solid as I expected it to be though and I think it is also a bit overpriced. However i did find useful the fact that is dishwasher safe as it makes it easier to clean.

Happy withby David

OXO Good Grips® Compost Bin

Somehow lost the horrible caddy the council supplied and bought this as a replacement. Can be used with or without compostable bags. I tend to use it without. Very easy to clean and the removable lid helps empty and clean it. Looks good too and sits in the corner of the worktop. My mum wants one now!

Love it!by ann williams

OXO Good Grips® Compost Bin

I can only endorse everything written by earlier reviewers about its ease of use and practicality. I love the design and quality of all OXO products, and this is no exception. Especially impressed by the small footprint .... yet it holds so much. A wonderful addition to a tiny kitchen.

Wonderful Productby Barbara

OXO Good Grips® Compost Bin

I am very pleased with this compost bin. Having read reviews for others I am so pleased I chose this one, because it is all plastic, doesn't scratch my worktops (a must I would have thought), doesn't need filters, the handle is secure, the lid flips right back for easy filling and emptying. The inside is very smooth, so although it is dishwasher safe, I can clean it very easily by wiping the inside with an anti-bacterial wipe or just hot, soapy water, and drying it with kitchen towel. Perfect, as far as I am concerned - completely hassle-free. OXO good grips at its best. Thanks Lakeland.

Simply goodby Julie

5 stars out of 5

OXO Good Grips® Compost Bin

I like this bin very much. It has the clean, smooth, stylish lines of a minimalistic look, and doesn't really look especially like a compost bin. It could be for anything. It's a good size and unlike a 'crock' it won't break, and not metal so won't rust. It doesn't need filters, so no extra expense there or fiddle. The lid design is perfect. Being hinged, if your hands are full it only needs a finger, or back of the hand or the arm to lift it with the lip on the front edge. It's double walled & I put a liner in it to reduce washing. I just love everything about it. Perfect.
