Additional Information

Compost Sifter

Just put finished compost into the pan and give it a shake. Finely-textured finished compost falls through, leaving stones, sticks and uncomposted materials behind. Use the sifted compost in potting mixes or add it to your flower beds and gardens. The rest goes back into your compost pile for more cooking.

  • Easy way to sift compost
  • Use the best, return the rest for more cooking

    This does exactly what I wanted and looks nice too. It separates the dirt from the weeds perfectly. Much better than the plastic grower's tray that I was using.

      Comments about Compost Sifter:

      I thought it would take me forever to sift compost with this but it was actually very fast. It has a large capacity and is easy to use. It works best if you only fill it half way. I filled a wheelbarrow with fine compost in no time. I love it!

      I need something coarser

          Comments about Compost Sifter:

          I am a backyard gardener with a single compost bin and no room for more. I had hoped to use this to sift shovelsful of soggy compost, but it's really designed for scoops of well-rotted compost. What I need is something bigger, sturdier and coarser all around. I find it hard to imagine a use for this; compost, it seems to me, does not need to be quite so fine in order to be useful.

              I debated with myself for 6 months before I finally ordered the compost sifter. I am so glad I did.

              I use it to sift my compost into a fine, pebble free mix. The holes are just the right size to let the finished compost fall through with just a few shakes, leaving behind the chunks which are easily added back into the compost pile.

              Another great use: My Arizona desert backyard is covered in gravel which, no matter how careful I am, finds its way into my garden. The compost sifter is perfect for removing the rocks that I used to pick out by hand. I just scrape off a layer of soil and rocks, sift out the rocks, and let the soil fall gently back into the garden,ready for the next planting.

              The sifter rinses easily with the hose and is still clean after many uses.

                            Excellent sifter! Nice size. I love its handles! I often use them to attach the sifter to another container I'm sifting into. (None of my other sifters have handles.) I sift everything--compost, leaf mold, mulch, dried leaves. A winner!!
