    Good construction and value

    Comments about : Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

    We wanted an affordable structure to keep our kitchen scraps long term and are very pleased with setup and product quality. It's too early to comment on the composting process but are estimating a similar timeline to an open air bin (e.g. A yeah with turning), but without having to worry about local animals getting in.

          Easy to put together. The lid was a bit awkward to close at first, but settled into itself after a day or two. I love that the lid stays up, hands-free, and closes tightly. I have had my composter for about a month and have been adding to it about 4-5 times a week. No odor as of yet. I have the rodent screen in place with success, as far as I can tell. I am loving this bin!

          Comments about : Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

          Nice, but not exactly the quality I was expecting. The composter parts are difficult to assemble - some parts were warped making it incredibly difficult to align and connect them... definitely takes two people. The lid, as other reviewers have stated, was a bear to get on. Once assembled however, the composter is attractive and discreet in our suburban yard/garden. The true test will be seeing hiw well it survives the harsh winter.

          I am new to composting, so I'm still learning. It is too soon yet to have compost, but when I mix it, it seems to be coming along. This composter is a good size and has an attractive design which is great for being in a suburban neighborhood. There was a strong odor initially, but once I started mixing more often and added more "brown" that went away quickly. Mixing is a little challenging.

          Comments about : Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

          We had the worst time trying to get the lid on. I was ready to dissemble the whole thing and send it back. My husband was sure they had send the wrong lid. I assembled and dissemble it 3 times thinking I had done something wrong. It just seemed the lid could not possibly fit. Finally with some brute force and getting things aligned just so, my husband got the lid on. The bottom panels do not slide up and down easily and they pop out of the channels they are supposed to sit in. Also, a small creature immediately burrowed under to get at the compost. I am going to get several 12" x 12" stone pavers to place under the composter to hopefully stop animals from digging under and into. Nice looking. Liked the idea of the bottom panels for getting at the compost. I think this could be a great product if the design was better.

            The rodent screen is a joke. It just lays in the bottom hardly big enough to cover the opening. There are no clips to hold it in place so the minute you pull compost out the screen will shift and the thing will be useless. The plastic frame itself is too lightweight. I agree with another reviewer. I did not have to drill new holes but I could barely get the lid on due to warping in one of the side panels. I look forward to using it but GS needs to put forth a little more effort in the quality of the product.

              Comments about : Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

              I selected this product since I think it will last longer than most composters. The design is fairly simple and the doors for removal of compost should not break. I also like that the top lid stays up when adding more leaves or grass clippings versus a lid that has to be removed. My only real concern is the metal fasteners used to attach the panels together. How long will they last??
