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.

      Comments about : Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

      We have been composting for years but the cheap composters we have been replacing every 5 years made it difficult to access the ready compost. This one just arrived and I think its going to be the perfect solution. The quality is excellent and it was a piece of cake to assemble.
      My only complaint??? It looks like an unfinished unit with the open ends of the axle. Just a couple of cheap plastic or rubber caps and the unit looks like it belongs in an upscale housing development. C'mon guys. It cost me about $200 to get it here when all was said and done....I would have gladly paid an extra buck or 2 for end caps.

        Comments about : Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

        This dual batch composter made getting started easy. Composting is challenging in the dry high desert southwest making smaller batches much better. It is much easier to agitate the compost with this spin design. My first batch hasn't "cooked" yet but I recommend the ease of use, size and sturdiness.

        Comments about : Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

        Love the two sides. Wish the hole was larger as I put my kitchen scraps into a 5 gallon bucket and then take it out and its hard to dump the contents in without making a mess. I like the vent holes however sometimes things do fall out during tumbling.

        Good Small Volume Composter

        By Miz Friz

        from Houston TX

        About Me Avid Gardener

        Verified Reviewer

        Pros

        • Compact
        • Fun to spin

        Cons

        • Does not hold much
        • Doors somewhat hard to slide

        Best Uses

        • Ecological Waste Disposal

        Comments about : Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

        We needed a way to divert our kitchen waste from the landfill and make compost for the garden. This composter is good for our needs; we are a small family with a small yard. My 'compost' was a yucky mess until I started adding shredded leaves. Now it seems like it might be working. However, this small unit will not reach the very high temperatures needed for quick composting. It was not easy to put together; the instructions could've been better. However, it is sturdy once constructed. The crafty raccoons who normally pillage everything have not been able to open it!

                I bought the single-chamber composter for myself a couple of years ago, and this one as a gift. I love mine, but wish I had gotten the dual chamber one originally for myself! Love the idea of having one "ready to go" and the other "in process".

                  The doors are difficult to open but I suppose that will also keep pests out

                  Comments about : Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler:

                  Several months ago I bought the dual composter, at first I had trouble balancing the wet to dry and was getting mosquitos. Added more dry and it fixed the problem. Two weeks ago my sweet family dog was bitten by a snake and died within 2 days. I started researching snakes because in the 20 years that I have lived here and been gardening I have never seen anything bigger than a garder snake. My research showed that composters and compost piles attract mice and rats and therefore snakes. I wish I had realized this before I lost my sweet Samantha. Your product is a good idea but I will not be using it ever again.
