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.

    I used to have access to lots of good material for composting but now that I don't the dual smaller batch containers work very well.

      Keeps raccoons and other pests out of the compost. Allows me to start creating a second batch while applying the first one.

          The product seems great. The barrels are sturdy. HOwever, I did not receive directions or hardware to assemble. I have requested the missing parts and directions, but no one has responded. So far, not good customer service. I will think twice about ordering from this company again.

              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.

                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.

                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.

                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".
