Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

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.

Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

This is my third composter. The first, a bear destroyed, the second, same type as this, I filled up this summer so I needed a second. By next spring I will have 2 bins of good compost for my garden. I was amazed at how quickly everything composted that I added this summer without much effort.

Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

The composted is very easy to use - the lid opens easily and it is very spacious. There really is no odor when the lid is closed. I have not had it for very long so I cannot comment on how quickly things decompose, but my concern is the access to the compost when ready. As it is a continuous feed composter (love that) I am not sure how the decomposed material will be separated from the newly added scraps etc. When you open the trap door at the bottom the contents spill out (messy) and there is no "filter" to stop the compost that is not ready to use from tumbling out. Will see how it goes. I expected some sort of screen in there that only allowed smaller particles to reach the bottom. would recommend with some reservation.

    Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

    This composter fits nicely into a corner; I wanted a design that did not detract attention from my garden. If finer compost is desired, I shovel compost on top of a wire screen fixed to a container that can be carried to point of use. Hmmm, perhaps Gardener's Supply can design one of those too..

    Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

    We are very happy with this composter. It has a large capacity, one-handed operation, is very sturdy, and looks nice in the yard. Our only concern is that the holes for the bolts and nuts were not predrilled. My husband had to use his cordless drill to drill the holes in the proper places to put it together. He's a handy, handsome guy, so it wasn't an issue for us, but would be for someone who doesn't have a drill and/or handy spouse.

      Comments about Deluxe Pyramid Composter:

      The composter was easy to assemble. It seems sturdy and looks good. The only real downside is that it is not modular like my other composter (which makes the other modular easier to dissemble especially for transferring compost.

        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.
