Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 84 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by good idea but doesnt work product was somewhat easy to put together but i did it alone. an extra set of hands would have helped. at first the bin spun with no problem. but as the weight increased due to more material in the bin it became much harder. eventually the plastic cracked some and then the stand became very wobbly. now, even though i still have the bin, its off the stand and when close to full its very hard to rotate. i still use it since it was almost $100, but its original "tumbling" concept was a total failure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. December 21, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. March 6, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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! April 23, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. June 3, 2012
