Overpriced piece of crap. Took all day to put together and probably won’t last through the summer. Could not get all the screws in the dang thing so definitely a design flaw and it takes two people to put it together. Just scroll on buy and save your money.

Assembly takes a little time but is simple - can be done alone. Paper inside confirms they are donating money to charity. Product sits quietly outside and affords me a place to put waste material that would otherwise be in the trash. Perfect for my needs. Does get messy when turned, and dogs will be interested in drippings (no surprise). It's now outside the fence.
