Q: You indicate that it is a dual chamber composter bin. Could you explain what's expected to go into each chamber? Is there a recommended mixture of kitchen compost items vs. yard compost items such as leaves for each individual bin or the separate bins?

submitted by Andy P - 2 years ago
  • A: There are two chambers so that you can fill one and leave it to cure and continue to put more compost in the other side. The door has two symbols so you can remember which side to add to (plus sign) and which side is curing (clock).

    submitted bymanwise - 2 years ago
  • A: Composting: Two types of materials are needed for successful composting: “green” materials, which are rich in nitrogen, and “brown” materials, which are rich in carbon. Green materials include plant-based kitchen scraps (vegetables and fruits), eggshells, farm animal manure, grass clippings, and young green plants, including some weeds. Don't add meat, fish, fats, or dairy products. And while the manure of animals that eat plants (cows, horses, etc.) is a great “green” material, carnivorous animal waste (dogs, cats, etc.) should not be used due to the possibility of diseases. Avoid weeds that have set seed, and don't add betony or other weeds that can regrow from plant parts. Brown materials include fallen leaves, twigs and chipped branches, sawdust, shredded newspaper or cardboard, paper towels, tea bags, and coffee grounds. The pile should be built in layers, each three to four inches deep. First lay down a "green" layer. Next, add a layer of "brown" materials. Then add another green layer. Sprinkle soil between all layers. Moisten each layer as your build the pile and turn your compost regularly to speed up the composting process. With little effort you can use the compost you produce to create a prosperous garden. All organic matter is made up of substantial amounts of carbon (C) combined with lesser amounts of nitrogen (N). The balance of these two elements in an organism is called the carbon-to-nitrogen ratio (C:N ratio). For best performance, the compost pile, or more to the point the composting microorganisms, require the correct proportion of carbon for energy and nitrogen for protein production. Scientists (yes, there are compost scientists) have determined that the fastest way to produce fertile, sweet-smelling compost is to maintain a C:N ratio somewhere around 25 to 30 parts carbon to 1 part nitrogen, or 25-30:1. If the C:N ratio is too high (excess carbon), decomposition slows down. If the C:N ratio is too low (excess nitrogen) you will end up with a stinky pile.

  • A: Thank you for your question, the dual chamber is for easy quick curing to turn waste into compost for soil, there is no specific mixture recommended at this time.

Q: How does this composter work? Do you need to water it once in a while or just dump kitchen scraps and soil? Does it work like an okbashi? How long does it take to break down all the compost completely? Does adding worms make it compost better?

submitted by CL - 2 years ago
  • A: The instructions from the manufacturer say that you should water if the materials feel like they are drying out. They recommend squeezing and it should feel like a "damp sponge." They recommend a mix of two parts browns (leaves, straw/hay, saw dust, twigs) to greens (kitchen scraps, grass clippings, garden & house plants) and also a scoop of garden dirt to start. They say it should take 2-8 weeks for the compost to be ready.

Q: Does this composter have wheels? Is it easy to move from one place to another?

submitted by - 1 year ago
  • A: Thank you for your question. This does not come with wheels. In my opinion it would be easy to move from one place to another, depending on weight after the compost is placed in.

Q: Hi, There appear to be "holes" periodically in the plastic. Is a critter or are bugs able to get in through these openings or are they not openings? Thanks.

submitted by Chereena - 2 years ago
  • A: It does mention aeration holes in the description but I believe the "holes" you are referring to are the "built-in holds" mentioned for turning. I'm sure some bugs can get in but that's not always a bad thing.

    submitted byHannah - 2 years ago

Q: How do the doors work? Can you securely fasten or lock them? We have racoons who routinely get into our garbage cans so we need to bungee the lids shut. I want to make sure animals cannot get in!

Q: How do you turn it? Can it be done on the stand or does it have to be removed and manually turned? Thank you.

submitted by MN - 3 years ago

We've added kitchen veg and fruit scraps to grass clippings and raked leaves, making two full bins of compost. Don't be pit off if you see what look like 1" long, grey, segmented flat worms;those are soldier fly larvae and they'll speed the process, plus the adult is a beneficial insect. Goes together quickly with 2 people.

It’s a good bin plus you can rotate it. But it leaks the wet stuff. Maybe it’s me not adding dry leaves?

I am pleased with the quality of this product. I also like that it shipped with minimal packaging. The assembly wasn't so bad, but you have to attach 8 panels to form the octagon so there are a lot of screws. I think the manufacturer could have included a few extras. We had one that was badly threaded and impossible to screw in.

Very nice compost bin - the dual chambers and easy turning ability are super helpful. It’s also pretty sleek looking and can easily hide in a yard without being a massive eyesore. A few things: - the instructions are terrible, do yourself a favor and go on YouTube and search for the model, there are several helpful videos that will give you great tips and are much better. - the instructions don’t say it, but you’ll need a 3/8th wrench for this. - water tends to collect in the divots when you spin it, so stand back if it has recently rained. It took me about 90 minutes to assemble this alone with the help of the YouTube video I mentioned before.

I had no trouble putting it together; the instructions are straightforward. Took maybe 45 minutes by myself; putting each of the panels on and screwing them in took the longest. I only hand-tightened screws, though it recommended using tools - I meant too, I just got lazy and it seemed good. It's holding up well so far with compost in it. Have had it for a few weeks now and it seems good so far. I don't have any soil yet, it's still baking, and I've got some flies and other buggies, but I think that's more about what I'm putting in there than it is the composter. I expect any compost has some of that. The stand is good. Some other more expensive ones had wheels, which probably would be nice, but not really necessary unless you plan on moving it around a lot, and even then, if you have two people, I doubt it'll be a problem. It does smell, but it doesn't smell bad really, just musky. I have it pretty close to my side door, and I can smell it when I walk out even with the lid closed, but it isn't too bothersome. We even leave the door open a lot and it doesn't waft into the house.

BethTheBuilder - 3 years ago, Verified purchaser
It absolutely works and does what it's supposed to do. That said, be ready for the assembly! It cannot be stressed enough that: 1. The assembly instructions are abysmal. Slow down and look at the pictures. (There are instruction in multiple languages that only discuss composting, NOT assembly) 2. Will go much more smoothly if you have 2 people assembling 3. Do NOT drop nuts/bolts - there are absolutely no extras, and it calls for 60-70 fasteners. 4. Look over the 2 end pieces. The holes for the lid must line up. If you get that right you'll be starting on the right path 5. If you use a drill, set it accordingly or it will likely pull your fastener right through the plastic Once it's together and the frustration fades, it's a nice little composter :)
