    Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

    I have a bad back and was still able to assemble this with only needing a little help from my husband. To get the holes to line up well, needs to be in the warm sun so the plastic will be a little more pliable. Attractive and like the space. Haven't had it long enough to see how well it will compost but I'm feeling pretty confident that I got the right product. I think it will be reasonably odor free because I plan on avoiding kitchen scraps so not to attract certain critters in our area.

      Struggled a bit putting it together, despite the simple fasteners. There was a lot of tension on the sliding doors but once it was all put together and tightened, it is sturdy.

          Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

          Having purchased & assembled 3 of these composters of an earlier design, I found this one difficult to assemble as the directions are NOT clear (have assembled 2 of this design) & the holes for assembling do not line up well. It is difficult to put together without another pair of hands.
          That being said, it is a wonderful composter but the price is now getting to be a bit ridiculous for the product.

          Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

          I've owned my first pyramid composter for 8 years. Just getting started with 5 chickens, I needed a second composter. After researching the options out there, I came back to Gardener's Supply for the pyramid composter again. The price still throws me for a loop but I can't complain about how my first one has held up and could not find another with the features of the pyramid composter. The new one has a few improvements over my first: it has a bigger footprint which makes it easier to dump lawn clippings and chicken bedding in; and it has both a front and back door to access the finished compost (original only had a front door). If I was only using this one for kitchen scraps I would have preferred the smaller footprint but for my purposes this is perfect.

            We needed something more formal to compost to keep our dogs away. This is perfect and attractive. We no longer have to worry about our dog bringing in what we just took out.

                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.
