    It's still very cold here so don't know about the odor problem but overall it's really a very nice product.

      Comments about : Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

      If you don't mind having to drill new holes and use some major elbow grease to get this thing together it will be a workable composter. Ours came cracked, warped and the screw holes were very misaligned. We made it work, but I'm concerned about the longevity of the thing considering the above. Also, bc of the way it came together the lid won't lock into place. It's the most attractive composter I've found and is theoretically well designed, but unfortunately it seems to be made somewhere that cares little about quality control.

            We used this composter with the rodent screen for years to dispose of food scraps and occasional grass cuttings. Then, my husband spotted a rat with food exiting a round hole cut into the side of the unit. Consequently, we stopped using the composter. Years later, I contacted Gardener's Supply again to inquire about any new solutions—the following is part of their November 2016 response:

            "In general there are few things that will completely keep rodents out of anything if they really want to get in. There are a number of deterrents that you can use such as Outdoor Mouse Magic:

            http://www.gardeners.com/buy/mouse-repellent/35-271.html#q=mouse%2Bmagic&simplesearch=submit&start=1 or

            Repels All Liquid Repellant:
            http://www.gardeners.com/buy/repels-all-liquid-animal-repellent/8592443.html

            The best way to keep out rodents however is to make sure that your compost is "cooking" at a good temperature."

            Worked fine the first year since it didn't have much volume in it and was easy to aerate. When full, it is very difficult to stir, and the corners stay dry even during heavy rains.
            The plastic did not hold up well - the top hinge stopped working and the lid pops off when I lift it. When the bin got full it buldged and the slots that hold the small door became distorted and the door won't slide up - it pops out and it very difficult to get back in.

            I like rain catcher that keeps compost damp. Lid firmly attached so doesn't blow away in high winds --- as happens with my other compost bins. Very sturdy construction. But as an elderly couple we found it unnecessarily difficult to put together.

              This is quick and easy to assemble, light enough to move into place, yet sturdy with good capacity. We haven't had it long enough to comment on how fast it makes soil. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the lid is so tight that we cannot get it to snap down all the way. Nevertheless, when it simply rests on top of the unit, it fully covers the compost and animals can't get in. We got the dark brown unit, it's the perfect size for a small city yard, and does not draw attention to itself.

                Composter is sturdy, with a good cover. No openings in the composter, itself, for rodents to get in. We've only been using it for a couple of months, so no finished product yet.

                  I liked the first so well I bought a second one. I use if for the waste from my vegetable garden and the paperwork that I shred for security purposes. I often do not have enough dry compost materials so I keep the shredded paper in a garbage bag and add it to the compost as needed.
