Questions & Answers

Can I compost cooked oat meal leftovers and cooked lentils? How can I check my compost is working?

Hello, I have only had this since Sunday- for 3 days and I can see the compost is not happening. It is not heating up and it is starting to look like rotting food. I added dried leaves to the kitchen scraps. I also added the organic compost starter that I purchased. Please, any advice would be helpful. I need this to work! It is only attracting flies so far!
Asked by: Teo
Be patient, it doesn't make heat overnight. Add a cup of water about every 3 days. A sunny location will speed up the process also.

I would like to know if the chambers are able to be disassembled, such to carry it easily. The containers seem to be too big .

Could you please send some photos of a composter not assembled?
Asked by: Mariale
The chambers can be disassembled, but it's very time consuming... and then you'll have to assemble it again, which is no quick task. If you're transporting the unit, your best bet is just to take the legs off and move the whole thing.

How wide is the opening?

How easy is it to get the compost out? Do you just turn and dump or scoop out?

FCMP Outdoor Tumbling Composter with Two Chambers for Efficient Batch Composting is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 570.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love our composter I am really new to composting though my husband used to do it many years back. He was not at all happy about using a tumbler as he has always used a 3 box layout side by side and turning it manually. As we have gotten older he didn't want to compost because he didn't want to have to do the turning over anymore. Fair enough, so after reading a lot of reviews and doing some research I went and purchased this model without him knowing. We (both) couldn't be happier. We don't add the grass clippings from our property because it just wouldn't fit (large rural property) but it is big enough for all our other garden scraps and left over food scraps. I've been turning it every couple of days for the past 6 weeks and it's looking good. Will have to wait a little longer as we only just stopped adding things within the last week and started filling the second container. We love this tumbler. Also was a great price with Home Depot and free shipping....very happy!

It does work well at keeping pest out. Couple tips: - Keep up with turning it. Since my compost consists of mostly greens it tends to be wetter and heavy. If I didn't turn it regularly it would settle to a solid mass and take a bit of effort rocking it back and forth to loosen it before I could fully turn the barrel. - It will drip nasty compost juice so be mindful of where you put it. - The grooves for the handles will hold water so keep that in mind if you live in a rainy or mosquito prone area. - I used Rust-Oleum Stops Rust on all the nuts and bolts since some reviewers had problems with rust. - The opening is small so don't expect to dump large amounts in without getting it everywhere. I can't comment on how quickly it works. Since I have more greens it takes longer to compost in general. One piece had broken during shipment and the company was quick to respond to an email and send out a new piece.

I was short one of 6 special length bolts. Luckily I had one on hand and it worked with the nut provided. Then I ended up with 4 bolts and nuts above the 56 required. It went together pretty easily, but there are 17 pieces to be bolted together, so plan on some time. I think it may go together even better than mine did if you make sure the center divider is positioned right - beyond making sure to keep it in it's track, I think there is a flat edge that should line up with each panel. Nothing in the instructions about it, but when I got near the end, I noticed some slight bulging, and now the door is a little stiff to slide. I found the website to be much more useful than the "instructions" provided in the box, although it's not real obvious how to get to the instructions on the website. Once all put together - I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If your compost isn't good - it's not the composter's fault!! To all of the people who say the holes don't line up: You're obviously putting it together wrong! The instructions are hard to understand, but in the instructions there's a website to go to with better instructions. Use it! It took a while to put together, but it wasn't hard. To everyone who has problems with their compost: It's not the composter's fault! You can literally compost in any container, so if your compost smells or is really wet, it's not the composter's fault - it's your fault. If it's too wet and smells, you need more dry material. If it's too dry, add more wet. You can't just throw only food scraps into the composter and expect it not to rot and be gross. There are thousands of videos and posts about proper composting - watch them! Don't blame the composter when it's actually user error. I started my compost with dirt, paper, leaves, sticks, and pine needles, then I added the food scraps. You can add manure and other things to add extra nutrients too, but just make sure there's some variety! As far as I know, you can't make compost with just food scraps and nothing else. This composter has been doing a great job of mixing!!

It's holding up beautifully and works really well once you get past the learning curve of composting. My biggest tips for this particular composter are that compost starter is your friend, and so is the SUN. Heat breaks things down faster, so putting this black beast in the sun really speeds up the composting process. The first couple of years I had it in a shady spot and it was sloooooooooooooooooow going. Like, it took ages to get anything out of it. But now I have it in a sunny location, add a little water regularly (I live in a warm, dry climate), and now we're in business. The "weeks" claim is still a bit optimistic, but a couple months and you've got something. Criticisms? It can be a little difficult to turn, especially when fully loaded. Some sort of handle that protrudes would be easier than the depressions for grip. And the depressions, if not hosed out regularly, become bustling nurseries for pods of black widow eggs in my area. All in all, though, I love this thing, and it remains the longest running, most fun science experiment in our family.

Assembly was straightforward but a bit slow. A power screwdriver or drill with a screwdriver bit is highly recommended. There are a lot of screws!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice size, nice price For a small backyard garden, especially in a city where rodents might be a problem, this is a great solution. This definitely isn't the fanciest tumbler-style composter on the market, but you really can't beat the price (I somehow doubt that the $400+ models make that much better compost than this one does..). It assembles fairly easily but will take you a little while as there are about 6 screws for each of the side panels. When I finished it I noticed that some of panels don't have the most perfectly snug fit, but for the purposes for this product that's probably not a big deal. The twin compartment feature is great - it's taken about 3-4 weeks of gathering kitchen and yard waste (for two people) to fill one side - now that can cook as we work on filling the other side. At this rate we'll have fresh compost for the garden all season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the small yard gardener This composter is exactly what I was looking for and at a considerably lower price than my favorite on-line garden supply resource. It fits nicely in a corner of my 10 ft. square patio and will provide compost for my 10 ft. square garden area and potted plants. The two separate bins are small enough so that each one should take only a couple of months to fill up from my 1-person kitchen scraps along with leaves from overhanging tree next to my patio. It took me a couple of hours to put the frame and bin together, which includes the time spent taking off the first two panels because I somehow let one end piece get out of alignment with the other end. The directions with the composter weren't much help to me so I printed the pictures and instructions from their website. I had no problem following these instructions. The bin went together easily, although it's tricky getting the first 2 panels on, but after the 1st 2 panels it goes together easily.
