Additional Information

Exclusive | Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler Has Two Rotating Bins

  • Produce high quality compost quickly and efficiently
  • Let one bin "cook" while you add fresh materials to the other side
  • Two bins rotate separately; each bin holds approximately 3 cubic feet
Watch: Dual Batch Compost Tumbler  

Batch composting is the fastest and most efficient way to produce high quality compost, and this dual bin tumbler makes it easy. Fill one side with kitchen scraps and yard waste, then stop adding materials and let it "cook," turning it every few days to speed up the decomposition process. In the meantime, add new scraps to the other side. When the first batch of compost is finished, remove it and repeat the process, letting the other side cook.

Just what I was looking for!

      Comments about : Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

      This has been a great product so far - exactly what I wanted for a family of two with a small back garden. We put it together pretty quickly (less than 30 min) & our first batch of compost is already cooking away. Lightweight and easy to use. I like that you can switch the "start" and "finish" door labels so you can tell which batch is older. So far, so good!

      Great composter with two bins!

      Comments about : Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

      We like this composter as we can "cook" a batch while still adding compost scraps to the second bin. The perfect size as well.

      First time I've been disappointed in a Gardener's Supply pro

      By Bernadette

      from Bolton, CT

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about : Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

      Although I find the doors a little small (hard to dump my kitchen compost pail without spilling), the real problem is that I can't open one of the doors unless I pound it with a hammer. I emailed customer service and never got a response. Definitely not usable for someone with arthritis. I've gone back to using my original composter, which I replaced because it has a crack.

      I might buy this product again

      Comments about : Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

      The top to one of the bins did not slide on so I could not use it. I had to return it. However, customer service made returning very easy. I was able to have it picked up at my door step. I might try to buy another one. If the lids fit it would be the kind of composter that I would really want.

      Good so far

      Comments about : Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

      Not as difficult to assemble as indicated in some of the previous comments. One of the doors does not slide as easily as the other - but that is fine. Compost is secure from the raccoons, and seems to be working well. I have not finished with the first batch of compost, but am thrilled to have the dual tumblers as I can continue to compost veggie waste, while other one finishes.

      • Doesn't take up a lot of room
      • Double tumblers

      Cons

        Best Uses

          Comments about : Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

          My husband who fails as a handyman put this together all by himself, so it was easy to assemble. We loved the two tumblers and the ease as which to add and shortly to disburse. It doesn't take up much space in our garden

          Product Works But Take Heed

          By aliastaken

          from New Jersey

          Comments about : Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

          This product works well but please make sure you have ample room on your property to seat it FAR from your home. My house has been invaded by flies because I did not keep it a sufficient distance. My property is just too small to accommodate it. I'm really sad that I tried to do something good for the environment and ended up having to haul it to the dump... time and money wasted. :-(

            So far, I really like this. I honestly need to use it for a few months before I can give a legitimate review though.
