You may be wondering what a kitchen compost bin review is doing on a gardening site, but if you think about it, it fits right in.
Gardeners compost kitchen scraps – and finding a good way to do that is essential.
This is why I was so excited to trial the Linkyo Stainless Steel Kitchen Compost Bin.
Not only did I love the way it looked, but I loved that it had its own filtration system which was touted to cut down on smells.
This is the second indoor compost bin that I own – and it is by far my favorite, here is why.
Why I Love The Linkyo Compost Bin
First of all I love the size.
I eat a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables so there are always scraps that I need to compost.
I fill it up every 3 to 5 days on average.
When it first arrived I filled it up, set it out of the way for about a week and waited to see what happened.
Now my other compost bin attracts bugs – and smells.
This one did not attract bugs nor did it smell. In fact I have not noticed a smell at all even when we dump it.
Another thing I do not notice is a brown water in the bottom of this one – unlike my other one.
It is easy to clean because it is stainless steel.
It is lightweight enough – even when it is full that I don’t feel like I am struggling to carry it to my compost bin which is about 1/2 acre away from my house.
The odor filters were a new item I had not seen on a compost bin before and I do believe they work – quite well – and thus this is why I have not had an issue with bugs or smell.
I absolutely recommend this compost bin.
It is perfect for those who want to get started composting or those who – like me – have not had the best experience with compost bins indoors.
It would also make a great gift item for gardeners!
