Does this composted get hot? I have small children so I wondering if it's safe the have in the yard.

Asked by: Amy
The compost inside the machine gets warm but not too warm. It will not get warm enough to actually burn anyone, not even close. It is extremely safe to have in the yard it might get as warm as a plastic chair that sits in the sun on your deck/patio.

Can animals get into it?

Can animals get into it?
Asked by: Maxo24
The bottom rim of the plastic is full of large screw-sized holes. It comes with four pegs to push through the holes to secure it to the ground. We also added four further screws because we have a lot of animals, including bears, that wander through at night. So far it's standing strong. It helps to add plenty of leaves and brown matter to prevent a strong odor luring animals.

It was easy to assemble and is perfectly sized for all of our family kitchen scraps. My wife and I do a lot of juicing and smoothie-making, so we output tons of compostable waste. The black plastic is thick and seems to be extremely durable. The included hold-down screws drove easily into the ground and are holding the composter securely. The lid is easy to open and close. We have had no problems with smell to date. Importantly, this the "The Best Composter for Kitchen Scraps" according to The Sweethome, which is an excellent, thorough review site.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Warranty doesn't not cover shipping cost A crack appeared near the door and grew steadily spilling unfinished compost. While under warranty, I contacted the manufacturer for a replacement of the lower ring. They quoted me $50 to ship the part.

And it was easy to assemble and just the right size for turning the composting material. It's HEAVY duty plastic that should last for decades. Plus, it is very attractive; looks like R2D2 in the garden.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Earth machine composter I just received and set this up with ease. It took about 15 minutes. I started it with some old mulch grass cutttings and organic waste. I added a compost fertilizer to help break down everything. This is a lot easier than burying all the previous organic waste we made, which was in a different part of my yard this I just keep adding food waste and spray with water. The black plastic generates a lot of heat in the sun which this isn't in. I paid for ease of use and set up for this. It doesn't hold all the grass cuttings which I may order another, we'll see.

It would have been sooner but we had to find the right location. He loves it and we both love finally being able to compost our kitchen waste--something we've planned to do for decades. My only gripe is that it's a bit hard to get the lid lined up right for removal. That's a very minor concern and would probably not even be that for most folks. I would recommend this to others.

It's just the right size for our household compost - we fill it up pretty much every summer and winter. It's easy to add household scraps and stir. And it's well-contained and secure, so there's no odor and creatures can't get in. We have a lot of animals around, including bears, and so far they haven't been able to break in.

I wish the stakes were longer to keep the earth machine more locked down. When I tried to turn what I put inside you have to avoid the sides because the earth machine will wiggle since the stakes are not holding it down well enough.

I have had 2 of these for several decades and have always taken them with me when I have moved . However this last time I was moving in winter and could not dig them out of the ice . I was very happy to see that Home Depot carried these . I 'll start with one and will probably purchase another in a few months .
