Ahh, the notoriously hideous kitchen compost bin. Or should I say compost pail? Compost crock? Compost bucket? Compost container? Compost caddy? I’m confused. 

The interwebs disagrees on what to call these food scrap storage devices, making them pretty difficult to search for in the first place, but then, to add insult to injury, it’s nearly impossible to find an actually good-looking kitchen compost bin you wouldn’t be completely embarrassed to display on your countertop.
