We've been using the CompoKeeper in our house for a couple weeks now. Before, we didn't compost at all, mostly because we expected it to be messy and invite fruit flies into our house. Now, it's harder NOT to use the CompoKeeper, since you don't have to interrupt your flow to clear your work space when cooking -- the foot pedals eliminate any contact with messy waste and leave your hands free. Even after a couple days packed with food waste, we haven't seen a single fruit fly, and my dog doesn't try to get into it (not that it could - the bag clamps prevent that) because there's no odor to attract her! We're really enjoying the easy composting life style.

After a month or so of use I have concluded that the design of this thing is brilliant. My husband used to get annoyed by little whiffs of ick from my old compost scraps set-up and this one holds 10x the volume (seriously) yet is clean and odor-free. I thank you, my husband thanks you, my son who is in charge of taking the compost materials out thanks you (the liner thing is genius). Really this is a remarkable design.

Our experience using the CompoKeeper in our City Hall offices has been extremely positive. One person even described how shocked she was when she opened it one day and smelled something foul. She hadn't smelled anything upon her approach and she didn't smell it after she closed it. She was so excited about that moment, she made it a point to stop me in the hall and tell me about it.

I've actually been using the CompoKeeper as a diaper pail and it works fantastic. The foot pedal is very sturdy and easy to use and the secure closing keep the odor in the bin. I highly recommend this product.

We are a "green", recycling family of four that has never made the leap to adding composting to our environmental efforts. It always seemed too daunting of a task and I was concerned about odor and the hassle of frequent emptying of a small countertop container which I really did not want. The CompoKeeper has changed everything! It is tucked out of site under our kitchen sink. It does not smell and is super easy to use! Our weekly trash is reduced from 2 20 gallon bags per week to 1 8 gallon bag! We dump the compostable bag in a leaf pile in our back yard. SO EASY! Thank you!

Passionate about being better stewards of our kitchen waste, for a few years we have been jockeying a small countertop container back and forth to the compost pile. It had little capacity, no closure, no filter. The CompoKeeper has been a qualitative improvement -- capacious, attractive, well designed and made -- and we find ourselves composting more, more neatly, with less effort than ever. It's great!

We love the CompoKeeper. We have a staff of about 35 staff on this floor so it gets a lot of use and works well for a shared space. It totally keeps the smell down.
