I paid full list 17 bucks for this on amazon. At one point they were blowing them out for 7 dollars, now they're up to 15. The good: -Snaps shut nicely -clever shape fits in tight corners
The bad: -You'll never find a replacement for the carbon filter. I've scoured the web. -It's just a plastic container. Before I got this I was using a plastic juice pitcher you could get at a dollar store.
I advise taking the filter out before emptying the container. I lost my filter that way. You can wash the filter so maybe you'll never need another one.
We purchased this product to store food waste for composting. We have a compost pile for completely organic food waste and another for regular food waste. This product - although rather large - fits nicely on the kitchen counter against a side wall. We put 2 empty half gallon milk containers (square wax ones) in it - and they fit perfectly - which keeps the unit itself clean. Although there is a filter to minimze unpleasant odors, what we do is close the tops of the milk containers with clothespins. The result is a neat appearance, completely organic waste and regular waste are kept separate, and absolutely no odor. For the price this is an excellent solution for our situation.
I like it! I've used a round ceramic one before but found it filled up too fast and was heavy and very noticeable on my counter. I wanted something a little less intrusive. Because of its slim profile, I'm able to tuck it behind my coffee maker and just pull it out when needed.
PROS: - very lightweight - large capacity - my bio bags fit it if stretched carefully - the oblong shape makes it easier to scrape things into it from a plate or cutting board - narrow profile makes it easier to "hide" on the kitchen counter - rinses easily with just water - great price
CONS - using the bio bag makes the seal not completely tight, so fruit flies can get in
