My roommate and I just bought the Gaiam Bucket last week and we love it! You forgot to mention the adorable flowers on top!

I guess its a good idea if you dont have a garden, but surely the smell and bacteria cant be good for keeping in the kitchen?

If you think about it, it's really no different from a kitchen trash can. I don't put anything in the compost bucket that wouldn't otherwise just get thrown in the trash, so the smell and bacteria are pretty much on par with any normal kitchen trash.

Save your $100 and buy some 3 high wire fencing meatrial. Bend it into a circle at least 3 feet in diameter, anchor to the ground with some branches or poles, and dump stuff in. Composting is not rocket science it is just the natural process of decomposition. It occurs continually in nature without any special containers, tools, chemicals, etc. My compost pile is just that a pile out of sight. It works fine.If you start now you will not have lovely compost in the spring, because the process of decomposition slows down greatly and even halts during the cold months. But start now anyway, because there is no time like the present.
