A few months back, I posted a blog asking if people were composting and using a built-in compost bin. After a good bit of feedback from readers and a little bit of research, I went for it when we remodeled our kitchen and installed the Blanco Solon composting bin in our countertop.
We are so glad that we did. It works wonderfully! The compost scraps are easily put in the bin. The rubber seal prevents any odor in the room, even when scraps sit in the bin for a week! The bin takes scraps daily but is large enough to hold several days-worth. All the parts are high-quality stainless steel which looks great and cleans up beautifully in the dishwasher when desired. I think it was one of the smartest design decisions we made in the remodel. Going forward, I am not the least bit concerned about recommending this composting solution for my clients. It is a keeper!
