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 found out after the initial assembly that the tumbler didn't fit the frame. After reading the instructions (I'm a man) I found my mistake. The unit then went together just fine.This is my 2nd season using it and have found the product to work well. As far as emptying it in the late fall, I place a tarp on the ground and pull the composter over the center. I remove the door and rotate the composter allowing the contents to fall onto the tarp. I spread the compost out to aid in drying before storing. I wash out the tumbler and let it dry before putting it away for the winter.

So far so good.
from Toledo, OH
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.
from Springfield, IL
Easy to assemble, just the right size for an urban gardener with a small space.
Easy to use
from Burlington, VT
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

from Barnstead NH
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 have bought two and very happy.
from Marshfield, MA
It will be nice to have fresh compost.

I Wish It Had Worked Out...
from Wall, New Jersey
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Seems to be working
from Central CA
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.

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.
