Yes it is great for veggie garden. If it is not fully composted... I made a sifter w 2x4s and hardware screen. I top dress the veggies w whatever sifts through and toss the remaining larger stuff back into composter for next time.

how long does it take for products to make compost?

Can you constantly add to the tumbler though out the decomposing process?
Asked by: snickers
If you keep adding to the tumbler, it will never "finish". You need to give it at least a month, maybe more, without adding anything for it to produce usable compost.

Tumbling Composter is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 97.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of $$ This should come with atleast a 1yr warranty! Within 4 months of use the bolt broke off the side where barrel connects to posts which made it useless! Since warranty was void I was left no choice but to break bin completely off the posts thinking I could roll on ground myself!! As you can imagine, this did not work! Next time I will do a lot more research on which one is best for my needs as (like most) $100 is a huge amount of money for me and doesn't come very often that I have to spend on anything extra (other than basics for a mom with 2 small children) **~

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Structural breakdown imminent! This thing seemed great at first, easy to rotate and turn the compost. To be fair it last us about two years but then the plastic started to beak down causing the bottom lid to sag, and shortly after the plastic around the metal axle gave in and the whole side tore open within a week. Go simple with less moving parts if you care about your composter's longevity.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product - but I remember when buying something that needed to be put together, they would put a few extra nuts and bolts in the package. Very annoying, trying to put this together by myself and 3 nuts are missing. Since it was lying in the middle of my living room instead of calling customer service I went out to hardware store and bout pieces, but time consuming and annoying. Also final mounting was a little difficult because I could not get bolt holes to match up, so went with smaller bolts since it is not being transported any more, but very annoying. So below where it asks would you recommend, I am only giving a qualifying yes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fastest compost ever!!! This tumbling composter is worth the little money you will spend. I made several batches of compost in the time it usually takes to do just 1. It is difficult to tumble when first filled, but the more it breaks down the easier it is to turn. However, the 4* rating is because it is kind of rickety. Not a very well made base. But it seems to be holding up just fine after 2 years. Also, you can't add scraps whenever you feel like it as you can with the stationary composter. You have to make 1 complete batch at a time. Not a problem because it goes so fast.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of junk This was a total waste of money. In less than month after I bought it, I started having difficulty with the turning mechanism. I repaired it but in less then 6 months, the barrel could not be turned at all because the metal parts had completely broken. It ended up in the landfill. There is no way I would recommend that anyone buy this piece of junk.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from after 4 yrs, it is still limping along Bolt broke after one year so I had to replace it. It was a cheap fix but it should not have happened in the first place. The stand is very wobbly and at times difficult to turn. I am heading in my 4th year and the locking mech. is starting to rust. Inside bars which mix the compost are also rusted. Overall, I have been limping along with this since the first day I purchased it. I paid just over $100 and for the price, I would have expected more than what I am experiencing. Going into Summer 2013, I have to continue to limp along with a poor composter. Hindsight, I would have paid more to have one that is easier to turn, less metal parts and something that would have just held up better. I would not buy it again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke within 2 months Purchased tumbler in March and by April the lock for the tumbler broke off. By May the lock for the lid broke off. I am now stuck with a giant plastic container full of a rotting mess. What a waste of $100.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Grrr.... My husband is a mechanical engineer....after already spending too many hours on assembly, he is right now going to our local hardware store to get a bolt that will fit. Everything seems to be "off" just enough to make it really frustrating to put together. Lots of pieces, not a project for amateurs. Not helpful for maintaining a happy marriage.
