Not Sure About This Yet
Aug 25, 2017
I love the look and the color. After using the same ratty container for years, it's nice to have something that actually looks pleasant sitting on the counter. It's roomy and holds a good amount of compostables. Before I comment on the quality issues, I will say that this is the only item I've received from Lehman's that doesn't seem to be as high quality and sturdy as I expected. I did call and was assured that they would stand behind this product if I have problems with it later, so I am keeping it. Issues: 1) The handle didn't stay on and will require a small amount of bending to get it to hold 2) There are spots where the paint is very thin and didn't quite cover - it doesn't detract from the overall look, but I am concerned about the potential for rust 3) This may seem picky, but it had a fairly large sticker on it that was very difficult to remove - I would have thought for the price that it would have been one of the easily removable stickers. More of an irritation than anything. So, I'm giving it 3 stars. Without these issues, it would have been a 5 star item.

This is the only item I've bought from Lehmans that I wasn't happy with. The paint peeled off and the metal underneath rusted shortly after I got it. For the price, that shouldn't happen. I still use it, but it looks hideous. I hide it on the floor beside the waste basket.
Lehman's says: We're so sorry for your experience. Please give us a call, so we can make it right: 1-800-438-5346.

It is a very good pail and works as advertised.

Does the job of keeping odors out of the room, but the bottom is about rusted out after only 18 months or so. Top is beginning to rust on the inside also. Guess I'll have to order another one and hope it lasts longer.

Less that a year and the lid is already rusting

Well constructed and designed. It looks good on the counter and is a good size to hold a lot of compost. The filters are great too. They do a good job controlling odor.

I love this compost pail!!!! It looks great on my counter. The pail is a good size, holds a nice amount of compost. The filter is amazing, I am shocked when I take the lid off when it smells because I don't smell anything before hand.

Love the way this looks on my kitchen counter, but it is beginning to rust around the top and where the filter goes. It also has some small chips around the edge. We are using it a lot, summer garden and all that stuff.
