Compost in Style! Blanco Solon

If you've read this blog for any length of time you know that composting is near and dear to my heart... See here, here and here.

While composting has plenty of upside, there are still those that either don't want a potentially smelly bin of scraps on their counter or have no where else to strategically hide it without forgetting it and really growing some wild stuff. Funky!

Blanco(one of my favorite kitchen and bathroom suppliers) has a considerably more stylish(and smell-reducing) option. 

Check out the Solon Compost System.

The Solon is available in  inset or flush-mount installation making it perfect to plan for when installing stone counters. 

The bin is 7.5" wide and 8.25" deep and completely stainless steel. Besides being easy on the eyes, it's easy to clean(dishwasher-safe)!

The hygienic seal traps in any unwanted odors of kitchen scraps before you easily remove the entire bin to transport to your outdoor compost system.

Blanco demonstrates how easy the Solon is to use in this short video... Take a look:

If you're a composter already or thinking about incorporating composting in to your kitchen, take a close look at the Solon Compost System.


  1. That is really awesome! I completely love it! No way at all the old man would go for it, though! ;-)

  2. Lisa- I think that once most people realize just how much they throw away and how much it can help one's garden it can change some minds!

    I LOVE the idea of a sunken bin, too- this is definitely on my wish list.

  3. This is a brilliant product! This could be just the thing to make composters out of noncomposters.
