Customer Reviews

I'm happy with it. I think that some of the 1 star reviewers have valid points but are a bit harsh. The plastic appears to be a cheaper plastic which may be more prone cracking if mishandled which makes this a little over priced. If you do have weak/cheap cabinet hardware, it may not properly support the bucket when full or opening. However, mine is fine.It comes with hardware. I drilled small pilot holes and screwed it on in a few minutes time. I do like the bag anchors which hold the bag up and in place. They're sharp but face the cabinet but one needs to take care while dumping the compost not to scratch themselves. I do like the fully closing lid to keep fruit flies out along with containing the odors. Why table top compost bins have holes in them, I'll never quite understand. The locking top is a trade off. It's kind of clunky to open but I'm getting used to it. Off hand, I'm not sure how I would improve it.There is a training curve on the user part to become proficient at opening the top while it hangs on the door. I was very clumsy at it, at first but after a few tries, I figured out the correct way to do it. If you're clumsy or have neuromuscular issues, it could present a problem. It would be nice if the hook set a little deeper into the clip on the bin. The way I do it is by applying a slight pressure down on the lid with my thumbs while I pull the handle back with my index or middle finger to open the lid. This way it says hung properly.I purchased the dispenser as well which makes storage and access to the bags much more convenient than our previous system.Overall, I'm happy with it. 4Bags are good, but they are now WHITE, not green (and will be going back to green again) The bags are now white. I preferred the green ones as they blended in with the compost better.We do not attach our bin to the cabinet door so the front for us is the part where it would be hanging on the door, and the back is the side where the lid is attached.When I attach the bag, I hook it onto one spike first, stretch it around the back (part where the lid is attached), hook it onto the other spike, and then gather all the excess and tie a knot in the center which I stuff under the lip. This holds the bag so securely that it frequently doesn't come out when we empty the bin and if it isn't too gunky I can get a second use out of it.Even when it takes me 2 weeks or more to fill the bag, it has never leaked, but at the same time the bags we tossed last fall have not yet decomposed and it's been over 6 months. Granted, it's been winter, and I don't know if that slows down decomposition or not.Most of the time, I carry the bin to the pile and empty the contents, then remove the bag so that at least the veggies are composting even if the bag isn't. On occasion, when it's been too wet or too cold to make the trek to the bin, I'll tie the top and leave the bag in the garage for a day or two.EDITED TO ADD: I contacted the company about the white bags and they say they are going back to green! Although the white bags feel different, they said that is due to the viscosity of the green dye and that the bags should perform exactly the same.I've thought about these bags since writing this review and I decided that I like the fact that they don't decompose immediately, which gives me extra time in the bin if I'm not cooking much that week. I really like the fact that they don't leak or break until I get them onto the compost pile. I've upgraded my review to 5 stars. 5Great to hold compost Great to hold compost, convenient mounting on cabinet door under sink, no smell even when it's full. 4 stars because it's a pain in the neck to attach the bags so they don't sink into the binUpdate 10/19/15This worked great until the handle broke. Company sent a replacement. Now the lid separated from the body. We're also getting some fruit flies, perhaps because the replacement handle was not sealing the lid well. Company is sending out a whole new replacement unit. It's nice that they have a lifetime warranty. I looked into stainless, ceramic, and other plastic bins but every one had some reviews that complained of fruit flies. The "Yukman" I just spoke with was very nice and very responsive. Hope the replacement until seals well. I like the unit a lot, fits well under the sink, and before the handle broke we had not odor and no fruit flies. Will give this another shot. 4Food Waste Container I looked around quite a bit and checked with others who composted to find a container for the kitchen to put fruit/vegetable waste in that actually worked well. This is not a composting unit, just a holder for waste until it can be taken outside. The YukChuk seemed like the way to go. It is much better than I expected. The cover is easy to open/close and it does not let any of those miserable fruit flies enter. This is the first unit I have had which keeps them out. It can be easily opened either on the door back or free standing.It is very easy to use. We make smoothies every morning and so we have a lot of fruit and vegetable waste. The YukChuk has enough room for about 3 days worth for us.I also purchased the Yimby Tumbler as the large outdoor composting container. The opening in the YukChuk fits perfectly with the opening on the Yimby, so no spilling. They work together well.When I'm making the smoothies, I take the YukChuk off of the inside of the cupboard door and use it right on the counter. The container goes on and off of the door hanging devise effortlessly. The handle locks down the lid and can be used for carrying out to the compost pile or larger container. This is a great product. 5Kitchen Compost bin - Fruit Fly Free The best compost bucket yet. The lid snaps shut very well. I have no fruit flies with this product. I use my kitchen compost bucket every day and then transfer it to my worm bin when the YukChuk gets full enough. Works like a champ. I admit there is a smell that builds up if I don't either transfer to the worm bin when it's about 1/4 full or if I put some citrus fruit of some kind in there with the other kitchen scraps. The smell is a small price to pay for no fruit flies.I don't use a plastic bag insert at all as I don't want to dump more plastic into the environment. I just wash it with soap and water every time I transfer it to the worm bin and it cleans up like a charm. Very easy.I'm thinking of giving several away to friends. I highly recommend this product! 5Easy to use, holds a bag well My compost process is three step and was getting short shift until I found this great gadget. It has several advantages for me over my previous efforts. First is that it's easy and intuitive to open and close tightly so there is no odor or mess. The bin has little hooks on the sides that hold a biodegradable bag securely which makes transferring the contents to my larger deck compost holder much nicer and leaves me with a clean container for my next load. This unit a good size and not in my way in the kitchen. I have little counter space so I'm happy that this can sit inobtrusively next to my trash can on the floor. I can bring it up to the counter to load if I'm prepping salad ingredients, peeling apples or shucking corn and I can hold it under the countertop lip to scoot in smaller amounts of scraps. When the bin is closed the handle is really nice for moving it and tipping the handle forward unlocks the sealed closure and opens the container.The bin comes with mounting hardware if you want to put it inside a cabinet door, but I didn't use that and am happy with it on the floor or counter as my work dictates. I did have a big bowl I was using for kitchen scraps since I could easily empty that into the larger closed bucket on my deck, but the bowl not only took up too much counter space, it was a pain to use if I only had a few scraps at a time since it was open. With this nice contraption I can keep filling it over several days as necessary without worrying about odor or fruit flies and then just remove the bag when it's full. I'd never considered the advantages of using a compostable bag before, but that surely does make the process more pleasant. It also is nice that the compost bucket on my deck is kept tidier with the bags put in there instead of loose scraps since it may be a couple of weeks before it needs to be emptied. When that is full I carry it out to the huge composter near my vegetable garden and dump it, a less grisly task when using bags.Now that it's early summer and produce-time is starting I was eager to find a good solution to composting that would provide me a good load for my garden next year so I don't have to buy any supplements like I did this year. I was throwing too much down the disposal until I found this item. I highly recommend it. 5Keeps compostable debris outta site My wife and I just completed a remodel and debated whether to have a nice looking countertop waste holder, or a hidden one. Went for this bin to hide it away. Smart design to have the lid open away from the cabinet door. Keeps the whole bin from lifting up. Takes a little practice to open it with the hooks that hold it closed. I hold the handle with my thumb and index finger to "assist" the release of the lid. We only hook it on the one side, which is plenty to keep it sealed.We use compost waste bags in it. When it's time to take out to our outdoor compost bin for pickup, we just lift out the bag. When it does need to be cleaned, very easy to lift the bin off the plate attached to the inside cabinet door. We attached the plate to the inside of our cabinet using Command Strips.Really working well for us. If you want a good way to keep your compostable waste outta site, this bin would fit the bill. 5How many yucks could a Yuk Chuck, chuck? How many yucks could a Yuk Chuck, chuck, if a Yuk Chuck could chuck yuck? Well this YukChuck has been chucking all of our yuck for nearly two years without complaint. ChuckYuk has created a clever yet simple latch design that makes for easy one handed chucking.Surprisingly, no odors escape the closed bin, even when food scraps are stored for up to a week, or longer. About once a week we empty the bin into our compost heap. It feels good to chuck things in, knowing that all of our organic food scraps are going back into the soil, and are not going into a landfill; to be preserved for hundreds of years for future archeologists to ponder confusedly on.I just wish our community would have mandatory separation of food scraps for the town s yard compost site. There are so many soil nutrients being lost to landfills across the country. Thank you YukChuck for doing your part to help us do ours, in helping to preserve this world. Be sure to check out the related video and turn up the volume loud, to marvel at the thunderous sound of stale Christmas cookies sailing into the Yuk Chuck! 5Just what I needed! This kitchen compost bin is pretty much exactly what I was looking for. We just started composting and it was a real pain to have to carry my scraps out each time I was finished in the kitchen. Because of the slim design, I was able to hang it on the inside of the cabinet under the sink without loosing much cabinet space. This keeps it out of sight and reach of the dogs! It's super easy to open and close with one hand. It doesn't smell and it's really easy to clean. I usually just hose it out whenever I carry waste out to the compost pile. Perfect for my needs! 5Lid problem cancels out an otherwise great design Love the Yuk Chuk. Its slim design allows it to fit easily under my sink. I ended up deciding not to hang it on the door but I'm sure it would work well that way, too. When the bucket is closed, there is absolutely no odor. I may buy a second one for those snowy days when I don't want to truck out to the compost pit every day or two. UPDATE: I am SOOOO disappointed because this has been my favorite in-kitchen compost bucket, yet I'm going to have to switch to something else. It's slim design allows it to easily sit under my sink. There's no filter to replace, yet it keeps odors away as if it had one. And, the lid design allows easy one-handed opening and closing. Yet it's the lid that's the problem. The lid on my first Yuk-Chuk broke within the first year, despite me being very careful with it. The owner was great and replaced it for free immediately. Yet, my second Yuk-Chuk lid has broken off even quicker. I'm really sad about this because I totally love the design. Yet, once the lid breaks, it's impossible to close tightly and keep odors and fruit flies away. I'm going to buy something else, probably something not plastic. If the Yuk-Chuk company ever fixes the lid problem, I'd love to know. 3
