New to composting

Most elegant looking bin I've seen and fits neatly under the sink. Charcoal filter works to combat odours. Happy so far.

Cracked interior powder coating

I love the look of this compost bin and it's a nice size for the kitchen counter top, however after the very first use the coating on the inside has cracked and started to peel. Admittedly we did not use a compostable bag in it the first use as we hadn't purchased any at that point, but nevertheless I don't think it should crack and peel after a couple days of use. Continuing to use now with compost bag and hoping no more deterioration!

Partly impractical lid

This bin ticked all my boxes (no odour, no mess, easy-operate lid and stylish design), however recently we had a maggot infestation in it (our bad). Eggs and pupas settled in the larger charcoal filter (had to be thrown away, but that's a small waste/manageable cost), but they also ended up in the narrow slit between the two metal parts of the lid, making it impossible to dislodge them. Due to the lid design the slit is impossible to reach properly (whether with tools or water) and the lid parts couldn’t be taken apart no matter how hard I tried.

The Apetito customer rep ( confirmed that the lid can't be taken apart and says the issue is not due to a design fault. They can't provide a replacement lid (even at cost) because it's not sold as/considered a replacement part.

So make sure the food scraps never touch the interior of the lid (if this was domed inside it would be better) and that you keep flies off the bin contents (they are quick to lay eggs).

A very nicely made compost bin.
The charcoal filter works super well with keeping odours at bay.

Question about Appetito Stainless Steel Compost Bin 5L

Can you please advise if replacement charcoal filters are available? I currently have a ceramic bin similar to this but the charcoal filter is no longer effective and actually smells worse that the bin contents.
