"Some assembly required" an understatement

By Greybeard

from Pittston, ME

About Me Getting Started

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Capacity
  • Design Appears Ok

Cons

  • Difficult assembly
  • Poorly Manufactured

Best Uses

  • Kitchen Scraps

Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

I had to supply some of my own washers because all the hardware was not provided. The plastic parts were warped and did not go together. The holes for bolts did not line up between pieces. In one case, a hole was not even drilled completely, although there was a mark where a drill was attempted, so I could use my own drill. One person cannot assemble the unit alone; two others are required to hold parts during the assembly.

    Downsized to a a small garden (a blank slate). Many of your products are perfect for the small garden. I'm using the 70" trug as a raised rock garden. Working out perfectly.

        Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

        I have owned several other types of composters and this is by far the best because of the self-watering feature. Basically, I just throw stuff in and let it go --maybe only turn it once or twice a season, if that. When I am adding a large amount of yard waste or leaves (say, half a bin full) I use some compost starter to get things going, but mostly cannot believe how fast everything breaks down on its own. I have been so happy with my pyramid composter that I recently bought a second one.

        Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

        I like this composter because I can keep it close to my back door for easy access, particular in winter when we, in the Buffalo area, get feet of snow. We live in a village with a significant population of deer, woodchucks, and raccoons. The enclosed container with a tight-fitting lid keeps out critters while warming the compost pile and keeping it moist. My only complaint is that the lid was hard to close when it was first assembled. However, after a week of sitting in the sun, the plastic warmed, becoming more flexible. After that, the lid closed just fine. I would give it a two thumbs up.

          Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

          Saw a few reviews that said it was hard to assemble but I was able to assemble it alone. Laying the pieces out in the sun before assemble was excellent advice because the pieces are fairly rigid otherwise. I've had mine about a month and i was suprized by how quickly things seem to be breaking down. I haven't pulled anything out yet but I have bee able to turn the materials myself.

          Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

          This composter has a good capacity and holds everything from yard waste to kitchen scraps. It appears to be aerating material well and allows just the right amount of moisture in.
          The only problem I find, is removing composted material from the bottom doors. I have been emptying onto a tarp and dragging it over to the garden, as the doors are low (which they have to be to get to the composted material). Not such a big deal considering I'm now using all types of organic matter in my garden and I hardly have any garbage!

            Just put it together a few weeks ago. It seems like it will do the job nicely. My old one cracked during the winter, but this seems more sturdy. As for the rapidity of composting, not sure yet, but seems like it is working pretty well.

              I have had this composter for more than 15 years. I use it everyday. There is something so satisfying in the spring to open the gates on this and have wonderful compost for the garden. I love it.
