Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tsuchida Great composter
This single unit barrel style composter has two conjoined compartments accessible only by the two circle openings. The plastic looks very thick (I estimate 1/3") and is very lightweight (less than 10lbs by my estimate). We've only had it for a few days, but my bro-in-law got his three months ago and he highly recommended. I was thinking about the compost tea collector and realized that unless it was on a raised platform, I would have to remove the barrel and then lift the base just to pour out the juice. I bought six (6) cinder blocks (8"x8"x16") for under $10. I leveled the ground and placed the cinder blocks in a 2x3 configuration and placed the composter on top. It looks great and is now 8" off the ground providing plenty of room to put a container below the spigot.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by UNHAPPY1 COMING APART AT THE SEAMS
I've had this composter for less than a week and it is already splitting apart at the seams. I didn't notice anything wrong when I loaded it up with my composting materials, but a few days later, I could see where one of the seams on the bottom has split apart and can also see a crack opening on the side. Upon closer inspection, there are plastic ridges along the seam lines that should have been shaved off when the composter was originally taken out of the mold. Altogether, a pretty shoddy product. Unfortunatley, I have already filled the composter up with materials and am not willing to clean the whole thing out and take it back to the store. I taped up the split seam and crack with duct tape and hope this holds for awhile, but if this product is already falling apart, I don't see it lasting too many seasons.
Just trying to save someone else from purchasing this poorly made composter -- don't make the same mistake I made.

So easy to set up and use; how did I get by before I had this?

Asked Santa for this. Read some reviews for others, but I especially wanted 2 chambers and the one I had homed in on was highly rated EXCEPT on ease of assembly. The one I got you just put the base where you want and sit the barrel on top. The base collects compost tea. Barrel turns effortlessly. Design is simple wih recessed handles for turning. Like the low profile vs a stand. So far so good. All composters seem expensive to me...they are just plastic...but if it lasts I'll be happy. Made in the U.S.

Virtually no assembly required. In store pick up was a breeze. It is the perfect size for my yard. Lids are so easy to use it makes adding material effortless. It will take a couple of months for the finished product but we are definitely on the path to success.

... even a child could do it. Comes in one big box containing two pieces: the dual barrel and the base. Put the base where you want it, put the barrel on the base, unscrew the lids, throw in compostable material, screw the lids back into place, give the barrel a few turns to mix. Now let time and the decomposition process take place in its own time.

The composter is compact yet able to hold a good amount of compost. No assembly required and is great for mixing and turning compost
