Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chas Very happy with this
No assemble at all. Because I wanted to walk out my back door and dump kitchen waste, I didn’t need one without a bottom. I made a small platform on my small deck and this worked out real well. I no longer need to walk through the snow and cold in the winter.

My wife has a green thumb. This composter has saved me many trips to buy potting soil when a new planting project comes up. Its a great device and easy to use. Im thinking of buying another. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Easy to use and works great
We enjoy not having to shovel the scrapings to rotate it. Now all we do is spin the bin on top of the wheels. This replaced our compost bin that we had for over a year which did not produce much soil for us because we did not rotate the scrapings much. We can tell that this tumbler is working because we can feel the heat inside and see a good amount of soil.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 1organiclady Good, Functional composted
This composting tumbler arrived on time and was simple to assemble. I can't say it is very attractive but that doesn't matter to me much. I've been using it for about 4 weeks now. It is easy to open and add compost material but the lid is a little fussy when trying to thread it back on. It contains decomposition smells well and doesn't attract vermin or insects. My only complaint is the composting material clumps together at the bottom and makes it difficult to turn the drum round. If I don't turn it every day it solidifies some and makes this problem worse. Some baffles inside would help to break up the composting material more and reduce this problem. Because it can be difficult to turn it skips off the wheel track and I have to muscle it back into place.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by UrbanFarmChic Easy to set up and capacity is much bigger than expected
I just set up my Compost Wizard and it was super easy. It took 2 minutes. You put the base down and then the barrel on top. Very simple. To make it easier for me to access, I put the unit on top of 2ft tall flower pot. It doesn't take up much as much space as I anticipated. (It looks huge in the picture.)
This composter is a replacement for the Fiscars Ecobin Composter I originally purchased. The Ecobin is made of mesh fabric, which made it easy for rodents to bite through.
Size-wise, the EnviroTumbler is smaller than the Ecobin. I was concerned it wouldn't have enough capacity for my composting needs. However, I've been able to fill it up with almost everything from my Ecobin.
I'm quite happy with the product so far. I'm hoping another perk is that there won't be much smell from it since the contents are contained in the barrel, unlike the Ecobin.
Time will tell how well it actually composts...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by disappointed horrible looking
the item came in poor packaging. it's obvious that this was returned by another customer. very ugly, dusty and not what you see in the picture on line. I'm returning this tomorrow, i don't have the interest to even use this, since i'm very sure that this will not function as well as I expected. Hoping that Home Depot will not give me problem.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ComposterNJ Solved the problem
The 6.5 CU. FT. BLACK COMPOST WIZARD ENVIROTUMBLER came assembled, and I used it straight out of the box. There had been a recent appearance at my open compost heap, and this seems to have resolved the issue.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Susan No problems at all- easy to use
I read a LOT of reviews before deciding to buy this model, and so far (after three months) have not been disappointed. It's easy to use, and we are already well en route to having fantastic compost that we can use this fall.
