Ready to move up to a bigger, better composter? We’ve used dozens of compost bins over the years, and have incorporated all the features we like best into our Deluxe Pyramid Composter. The lid is hinged so you can open it with one hand, yet it can’t blow away. Narrow side vents ensure good ventilation. Two sliding doors, front and back, stay open to make removing compost easy. Best of all, the signature self-watering lid lets in the right amount of rainwater for optimum performance. Convenience and large capacity at a great low price! Holds 12 cubic feet. Open bottom; add the optional Rodent Screen (sold separately) to keep pests out.

Comments about : Deluxe Pyramid Composter:
I received this on Saturday. Brought it inside to warm up & put it together on Sunday. It wasn't difficult to put together but you did need to ease it together to get it to mesh. It has cleaned up my open compost pile and I am very happy with it. Thank you to the representative who answered all my questions prior to ordering it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just put this together today. Like others, I struggled (and failed) to get the lid to fit correctly. Not sure this is a fatal flaw but thought I should report it. I don't have any other feedback at this time. will update after use
I would definitely recommend
Very easy to use, especially for a first time composting family!
I would buy again
from St. Louis
This is my second composter from you, still have the first one from 15 years ago so had to get this one with the attached lid. Love it!
It's my second composter (still have the first one, over 15 years old). Love the attached lid!

Corner snapped off of the top
from Ossinin, NY
Like many I found that the pieces didn't fit together well when I put this together. Over the weekend, after 1-1/2 years of ownership, I saw the top on the ground. The socket in one of the back corners of the top had broken off, rendering the top useless. I am now using a cobblestone to hold it in place.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Response to my review on 12/12/17 is misleading
I did assemble correctly. The unit top will not close - others have had the same comment. I may be able to modify when it is warmer here in VT but as supplied and assembled per the instructions the unit top will not close completely.
I recommend adding the grate the the bottom to keep pests out. Easy to assemble
Unit is fine except it will not close
from Bristol VT
Unlike other reviews on this site I had no problem putting the unit together. The instructions are very poor but a ssembly is pretty intuitive. Only issue I have is that the plastic that are used to close the top are much too big. I can only close one side at a time. I may be able to modify the hole locations for the screws so that I can close this but I Assembled it using the holes as pre-drilled by the manufacture.
Merchant response: We are sorry to hear that your composter isn't closing. Judging by your description, it sounds like you have reversed the position of the front and back panel, so that the back panel is in the front of the composter. This is a very common mistake, that will cause the composter lid to not fit correctly. If you switch the front and back panels with each other, it should solve the issue.
Fair-to-Good Composter, With Serious Fabrication Problems
from Santa Barbara, CA
The composter, a large rectangular box, is a simple and proven design. The four sides of the composter go together easily. All parts were present in the box. However, the plastic sides are flared out (away from the composter) more than an inch at the top, so getting the lid on is troublesome, if not impossible.I used a large woodworking clamp to *carefully* pull the two sides together at the back where the pivot points for the lid are located. After some struggles and a lot of sweat, I was finally successful in getting the lid attached. After removing the clamp, the lid still moves with sufficient ease to be functional.HOWEVER, the front sides are flared, as well. This means that the lid will not close completely. Ever. I can get the lid down over either the left or right snap point, but it will not expand and close over both.I'm hoping that with this review, someone from Gardener's Supply Company will contact me and provide me with a solution. Otherwise, sometime before the end of the year, I'll probably make an effort to cut part of the locking point off of the lid so that it can expand around the second snap point and close completely.Not fun. I should not have to do *any* of this for a product that costs almost $200. It should go together correctly, fit properly and function as designed. This one does not.If the product assembled and functioned as designed I would rate the product a 5. I've used similar products in the past and they compost well. As an on-line consumer, I do not expect to experience the product fabrication issues I have with this one.
