Would not recommend

By Angelo

Comments about : Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

I read reviews both here, on the manufacturer's site and other generic garden sites and everyone seemed to be pretty pleased with this so I ordered one.

The construction is extremely poor. The sides do not fit together without a lot of muscling around and I needed a clamp and a hammer to get the top on which still does not fit properly. There are chunks out of the plastic where you can tell someone (or something) was trimming the plastic after it was molded but these molds are extremely poor. I even had to use a screw driver to make the hole on one of the sides wider to line it up.

I really liked the size and features of this unit as for me it would have been perfect but I'm going to work to return it.

Not well made

By Amy

Comments about : Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

Considering how much I paid for it, this composter did not assemble well. The instructions implied the front and back pieces were interchangeable. When I tried to put the lid on I found they were not. After taking it apart and reassembling, we were able to get the lid on, but it still does not fit well. I think the wholes provided to bolt the side together are drilled in the wrong place. I bought this one because it was the only brown one I could find. The other, cheaper, versions look like they would work at least as well.

      Comments about : Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

      So, I just received this the other day so I can't comment on how great it works at composting. I can comment on how easy it was to put together. I just looked at the included directions to see what went where and was good the go. I saw that people had problems with the lid, but I had no isssue. It does say to make sure you attach the lid at the smaller knobs, so I wonder if that was where the issue occured for some. It seems sturdy and the lid will keep my dogs out of the compost bin.

        Good construction and value

        By Sassafras

        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.
