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 this composter bin fit in the trunk of a car?

Asked by: CJ
Yes! it will fit in the trunk of a car. If your car is small it can easily be taken out of the box at the store and put in the back seat as it comes in two pieces.

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.

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.

We now have two of them, and they cook away all season long. My wife found this model, which was recommended by some city in Ohio online. It's easy to assemble, keeps the criters out (not from beneath. You have to net it if you desire that), vents, and transforms yard, garden, and household compost items into great soil.

As was described by many - easy to assemble the two parts to form the body. Easy to fit the screw on top and the slide in place lower door. The 4 screw-in stakes are perfect for anchoring the composter to the soil. I also put a 4' x 4', 1/4" mesh screen below first - to protect from pests, and then put the screw-a-stakes in. I feel like it is a good value at $99 - and although I had to order the product, it was at my local Home Depot in about a week. The box it comes in is large - but not excessively. I was surprised at how small it was, actually - but easier understood when you realize that the main shell comes at two inter-connecting cylinders. So far, so good - physically it's great, looks like Darth Vader - assembly was quick and easy, and functionally? We'll see - but it's in and working now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Composter I haven't had this composter long enough to know if it really works as advertzed. The cover does not work well. The two pieces of the body does not attached properly so that when the cover is turned to open position the two pieces came apart so I have to leave the cover at the open position.

I bought one of these about 15 years ago and was always very pleased with its creating good compost. I moved last year and needed a new compost bin so I stayed true to a great system for composting garden and kitchen waste. The last one also provided me with many worms for any fishing trips.
