      Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

      Well, it came Fed X about an hour ago. It is finished and I am writing this. I have been using plastic compost bins for 6 years all being less expensive then this. When It came I figured no time like the present. I have to admit i only looked at the pictures. It was clear in the drawing there is a left and right. What isn't clear is there is also a front and back. The radius corners at the top are different with the bigger radius going in the back for the lid to swing properly. Thankfully I only had two pieces together when I figured this out. I am disabled with a horrible back and assembled it sitting in a chair. All and all it went together well but I am not use to working with wing nuts. They worked ok and make for a far more positive assembly then other products I have assembled. I have assembled 6 different bins from 4 different manufacturers for myself and family. So far I am very pleased with this unit. I know some reviews claim it is flimsy but compared to other products I find the plastic to be a heavier gauge and far more rugged. I LIKE it........

        Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

        We haven't actually used the composter yet and I don't have any doubts that it will work well. However, the product I received was somewhat defective. The screw holes didn't line up because the plastic didn't fit together quite right.

        After contacting Gardener's Supply Company, they were responsive to my issues and found an agreeable resolution for my situation. Therefore, despite the negative experience with assembly, I'm giving a 4-star review in anticipation that the composter will still meet my needs when it gets warm enough to start using it.

            Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

            This composter is a big improvement over open-topped units we used in the past. The lid fits snugly and is substantial enough to discourage raccoons, skunks, squirrels, and other small to medium sized opportunistic and nuisance animals. I don't think it would slow down a bear much, though. :)

            We use it essentially for household vegetable matter--coffee grounds, tea leaves, fruit and vegetable waste, cores and peelings. We also use it for a few leaves from the yard, although not all, and not brush. We do some home canning and a lot of home cooking so we take things out at least once a day. It's a very convenient way to dispose of most vegetable household waste without adding to landfills or accumulating large amounts of smelly garbage in the house or garage. We don't find the composter's odors offensive, but we avoid putting things in it that we think would be a problem that way. The only detraction I can think of is the annual proliferation of fruit flies during tomato and fruit canning season.

            It does work very well for everything we throw at it and we have used it for several years. It provides a warm damp environment that decomposes everything to a nice mulch or fertilizer for use around the yard.

            We have now bought our second one for a place we visit often. We have recommended one for my sister, who would probably find it a big improvement over her present system.

                Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

                Recently purchased this composter, it was on sale and a good size. However, my husband and I would agree with some of the previous reviews, it was indeed, somewhat difficult to assemble. Some of the screw holes were not aligned and not logically placed on the product. We also purchased the rodent screen, which is a universal size, I'm sure, but doesn't fit this composter tightly, so my husband used some clips to secure it. Now, to the bio bags for the compost pail--they leak like a sieve. Take pail and all to the composter. Hopefully, by spring of 2014, we will have compost for our little garden.

                Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

                I got this as an affordable compost for my Hops garden. It looks great in pics and once assembled. The plastic is filmsy. The predrilled holes are all a little of and require a bit a muscle and force to get the hardware through. I understand there choice of hardwatre so the assembly is pretty much toolless, however, to me i believe philips screw driver, 1/4 or 3/4 inch ratchet set our household tool that almost all homeowners should own esp. if they would be interested in a product like this. The wing nut and finger screws or tight to get your hand on a screw or small bolt with a flanged grip nut would be much better. The top to mine didnt fit well and was about impossible to install until i left it outside in the driveway in the sun for a couple hours and it was still tight. Next time id buy something metal or make my own out of wood. I dredd accidentally popping the top off. I probably would have returned it if it wasn't so large the shipping cost wasnt worth it to return it.

                    Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

                    I like the composter very much, though I haven't had it long enough to make finished compost. It was fairly easy to assemble alone, although would've gone a little faster with 2 people (which is recommended). My one complaint is with the rodent screen: 1) It should be part of the composter itself instead of being sold separately, and 2) It is a little small. An inch or two larger and it could slide into the grooves under the clean-out doors, thus actually being installed into the composter rather than just lying on 2 pieces of plastic curved under the sides where it may have shifted with my first toss of grass clippings.

                          Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

                          I have not started using this for composting yet since I just put it together. The quality control for the manufacturing of the parts is very poor. You need to force the parts together, the holes barely line up and the lid was not even close to fitting. I had to use a bar clamp to pull it together to get the lid on the hinges and it will never lock down on more than one of the front locks. The sliding doors do not fit well and may come out of the tracks. The design seems fine but the manufacturing is awful. Very disappointed.
