Simple Human makes great looking products, so I was excited to see their take on the countertop compost pail. I have a similar aluminum pail at home, but there's one feature the Simple Human pail has that I'm now wishing mine had as well!
Simple Human's compost pail is a 4.5 liter brushed aluminum pail with a natural bamboo handle. It retails for $59.99 so it doesn't come cheap. What makes it so great? Well, for one, it has an integrated filter. (But so does just about every other counter top pail available, you're probably thinking.) But it also has an integrated lid hook. The inside of my lid is always too grimey to set on the counter, so I always end up stashing it into the sink while I fill the pail with compostables. This completely solves that problem! So while I'm not going to out and buy a new container, I might just keep this one in mind for a DIY project. Look for a Test Lab of this pail in the coming weeks!
