Works OK

"I had to stake it at first until material started to decompose in bin. Does't process waste as quickly as a tumbler but ok if you don't need large amount of compost quickly."

Bad design

"The day I got my composter, I filled it over half way full with compost. The next morning, I woke up to see the plastic shell had blown into the ditch. There is no bottom for the bin, and the way it's structured, it bears no weight, so the light plastic shell just sits on top of your compost pile until a stiff gust of wind blows it over. I also have one of the rotating composters, and I would definitely recommend that design over this one."
