Additional Information

Dual-Chamber Tumbling Composter for Easy Batch Composting

  • Our most affordable tumbling composter!
  • Convenient and efficient way to produce high-quality compost
  • Let one side "cook" while you add fresh materials to the other
  • Built-in paddles mix the material as you turn the tumbler

Transform kitchen scraps and yard trimmings into nutrient-rich compost for your gardens. Batch composting is the fastest and most efficient way to produce high quality compost. Fill one side of this bin with kitchen scraps and yard waste, then stop adding materials to that side and let it "cook." In the meantime, add new scraps to the other side. Turn the tumbler every few days to break up the materials and speed up the decomposition process. When the first batch of compost is finished, remove it and then repeat the process, letting the other side cook. Reversible door flips over to keep track of batch stages. Vent adjusts for proper air flow. Sturdy tubular frame. Large openings for easy access to chambers. Rodent-proof design. Holds a total of 5 cubic feet.

    I really dislike this composter. Holes are too small so it's always a mess, and capacity is too small for a two-person household.

      Comments about : Tumbling Composter:

      I bought this in March well aware that in my area of Utah I'd have to wait until at least April or May for the weather to get warm enough to start breaking down my scraps and leaves. It's easy to fill, easy to turn, and works just as explained.

        Comments about : Tumbling Composter:

        We've had this about a month, and so far, really like it. It's sturdy, and provides easy access for loading material. We needed somewhere to handle citrus, onions, etc. that we can't put in the vermicomposter and this does that just fine.

        The assembly instructions weren't great, but whose are anymore. Once we laid out the parts, it went together pretty quick. Not rocket science, really.

        Really like the 2 separate compartments. And nothing leaks into the other, or outside the bin, period. Very well made.

          For a small above ground ground I think this composter will be great. My first attempt at composting. I have never been impressed with store brand compost.

            The instructions are incomplete, and really, the worst I have ever seen. They say complete instructions are available on the website, however, if those still exist, they are no longer available at the specified address. I couldn't find the manufacturer's instructions. Luckily, a google search pulled up a YouTube video for a closely related model. This will likely be my last order from Gardener's Supply Company.

              I like the two compartments while one side gets full and composts the other side can be used for another batch.

                  This is a good starter composter for us. There are only 2 in the household. Very easy to load. A little difficult to empty. A little northern fun fact - in winter the darn thing freezes closed. Another reason to look forward to spring.

                      Comments about : Tumbling Composter:

                      We bought this composter for the dual chambers so that one side could be composting while we were adding to the other side. That part is wonderful; however, when it came time to empty the composed side and we slid to the opening position and tried to turn the tumbler to empty, the bin cover for active compost side hit the leg and we could not empty. We are senior citizens with health issues and this was not what we thought it was going to be. Had to finally use gloves and scoop the compost out. We have been very happy with everything we have purchased from Gardener's Supply but is definitely not as advertised.

                        Comments about : Tumbling Composter:

                        The tumbling composter was a little tricky to put together but it seems to be well built. Since it is winter I don't really know how well it will work. Love that it has two sections to have one part working while still able to add to the other. Assume the tumbling will make compost faster and easier than trying to turn waste in a pile or other composter sitting on the ground.
