But not all hair dryers are alike, and technological advances have made it possible to achieve salon style results at home, if you invest in the right equipment. The same technology has been applied to hair straighteners ?
Amazon: Norpro 1 Gallon Ceramic Compost Keeper Red: Compost Bins: Kitchen and by amazon.com
The compost keeper works best as a temporary holder for these items. Change the filter approximately every 6 months, depending on use.Moisture from warm product can decrease the time for changing the filter.
If you don’t have a fruit fly problem in your area, this will work. I decided against stainless steel–hard to keep clean, and the bamboo ones because the reviews indicated they crack and don’t hold up. It is hard to clean on the inside because there is a rim in the bottom and liquid and food scraps get trapped there and are hard to clean out. Normally that wouldn’t be a problem, but in the case of a compost keeper it isn’t a good idea. I cut a round piece of fabric larger than the top and placed it between the crock and the top.
We have not had any issues with smells because we empty it rather frequently and it cleans up very nicely because it’s ceramic. I had onions and garlic and other veggies in it for 2 days and never smelled anything. That time can be affected by heat and humidity in your area. The charcoal in the filter absorbs the odors and once it has fully absorbed to its maximum, discard filter. I liked the idea of ceramic, and black is a good color for my kitchen. The top doesn’t fit tightly in the crock leaving a large gap between the crock and the cover. I bought this crock to replace my larger compost keeper that attracted fruit-flies in the summer. I tried putting another ring around the top, but the top was still too loose. Finally the top was tight enough to keep the fruit-flies out.
We have two complaints though, the lid on our product was slightly irregular and does not fit as well as we would like it to so it sits slightly askew. There are plenty of nooks and crannies to clean out after each use that seem to just hold moisture no matter how much you dry it.
Otherwise, it looks great in our kitchen and was a good price. It has a traditional look and blends in with my fiesta ware and decor. I like being environmentally friendly and this keeper helps our family do just that😃 the only problem is the lid doesn’t sit completely straight; but that hasn’t been a problem and it’s not that noticeable.
