        This replaced what we thought was the same item from Gardener's Supply that withstood about 8 years heavy use. However, the newer version does not assemble properly, the pieces and esp the hinges on the top do not fit together. If it weren't so large, we would have returned the item. Very disappointing b/c we were very satisfied with the older version.

              This looks like it will do the job (mostly kitchen scraps). 2 of us assembled it in 1/2 hour. But, contrary to the directions, there was not space for the wingnuts to rotate on the inside so we placed them outside. Also, one door stays up when raised (as it is supposed to), the other does not. Still, this promises to be a big improvement over the open system we had been using -- attracting coyotes (cat eaters!), we believe.

              Solid construction, fairly easy assembly but needs better step by step pictures, good composting tips, large capacity, simple and easy to use.

                Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

                A great design! simple, easy to put together (but it DOES take 2 people), and totally efficient. huge top so it's easy to load yard waste, as well as the compost bucket, and turn stuff easily. rain water comes in top to keep it moist. no creatures can get in (maybe even bears) to drag away compost. simple to get finished compost out. other composters didn't last through the heavy snows, or compost froze so barrel wouldn't turn…this one is designed so well it will last forever.

                    convenient size, keeps the dogs out as well as other visiting, nosy critters. Square design sits right up to fence (but on the ground. You have to turn the compost yourself).

                      We have owned a Pyramid for years and decided we wanted a 2nd because we were so pleased with the 1st one. Wormes love our compost even though we have it set on a 3" high fiberglass platform.

                          My first impression was that this would be a fine composter IF I could ever assemble it. The problem is that the various parts do not appear to fit together very well, and the instructions are rather feeble. In the end it all worked out, but some improvement would be in order.

                          This composter seemed like a great idea. The design was good with the sliding doors on both sides and the color was pretty which matters for my asthetic. BUT after a few months of composting the doors started to come out of their slots and fall off. I use a compost booster and make sure to layer my browns and greens. I also aerate with a pitchfork or aerator. The doors soon started to fall off. I couldn't get them back on! Finlly, they just popped right off. I think the walls of the composter bulged which caused the doors to pop off. The composter did a good job of making beautiful, black soil but I will be returning this item for a different composter. Although I could empty the composter and put the doors back on, I don't want to deal with this hassle every few months.
