I have seen lots of kitchen scrap bins that sit on the counter, but have been worried about odor & fruit flies/gnats. Then at Tupperware Jubilee in August, I saw a demo that put those worries to rest.
Imagine it...I had the solution right
I learned that if you crumple a couple of sheets of newspaper and place them in the bottom of the container, it eliminates odors if you don't carry scraps out right away. It is working perfectly for us!
The container has a 5-qt. capacity, and is dishwasher safe. (Just in case you forget it for a couple of days and get a "science experiment" growing inside.)
The container can be purchased on my shopping website <HERE>. The cost is $35.00 and the seal colors available are Brilliant Blue & Passion (red). Sorry, green is no longer available.
