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.

So far so good.

Comments about : Tumbling Composter:

Composter was easy to set up. I am an older female with arthritis but I had no difficulty. Just got the first batch started and it seems to be working just fine.....since the temperature is dropping I understand that it takes a little longer. Have always had a compost pile on the ground so this is a new experience for me.

Comments about : Tumbling Composter:

Pretty easy to use and though we have only been using it a few weeks it seems to be in full gear. Hopefully, this will turn into a great addition for our garden next year.

I would buy this product again

By LG the cottage composter

from Barnstead NH

Pros

  • Sturdy

Cons

  • Directions could be clearer

Best Uses

  • Back yard composting at our summer home

Comments about : Tumbling Composter:

I have only had this product for a month so I cannot honestly rate the end product...mulch. I can tell you it is made well. It did take 2 people to assemble. We were 90% assembled when we realized that 2 panels in particular had to be used for the door to fit properly. after we disassembled and started over it was a breeze!

I Wish It Had Worked Out...

By JLE

from Wall, New Jersey

Verified Reviewer

Comments about : Tumbling Composter:

I felt so proud when I bought this composter. I wanted to do something great for the environment. It just didn't work out. Some have complained that it is hard to assemble and it did take me almost two hours but that's not my biggest issue. The unit's design is simply flawed. It's very difficult to remove compost once it's been filled- no matter how I turn it, I can't get it out without getting it all over myself and the ground. But worse still is the vent system. Flies breed inside and the holes in the unit (not just talking about the vents) make them impossible to contain. My yard and then my house became infested with flies. It's terrible! I had to take the unit to the dump and bring in an exterminator... I'm out three times the money I spent and feeling really bad.

  • easy to access, turns well

Cons

      Comments about : Tumbling Composter:

      I used a Youtube video to put this item together. It was not so much difficult to understand as a bit unwieldy to assemble without a second person helping. I bought it with the hot compost starter. So far it seems to be working using appropriate table scraps, yard cuttings, coffee grounds and filters plus a little straw when needed.

      Fantastic composter

      By Charlotte

      from Washington, DC

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about : Tumbling Composter:

      This composter is excellent. The assembly was easy and the entire thing feels solid. It's really easy to turn, it does a great job of helping to heat up the process, and it's altogether exactly what I wanted for a reasonable price. I also love that it's elevated as it keeps out insects and rodents.

      Very good, with one caveat

      Comments about : Tumbling Composter:

      This is my second purchase of this product. Loved the first one, and needed more capacity for compost. Would give 5 stars, EXCEPT that in putting it together found that the frame base was too narrow for the composter. I emailed the address given on the yellow instruction sheet and found that there was a manufacturing defect on the dd frame pieces -- they sent me the proper pieces and all is now well.

      Rusts and falls apart

      By JV

      from LA

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about : Tumbling Composter:

      I bought this 2 years ago. It has rusted and fallen apart, both the legs and the turning assembly. It's going to be quite a project, as it is heavy and full, to get it out to the junk yard. Do not buy this product!
