Product Description

The Can O Worms vermicomposting unit is an easy way to turn kitchen scraps and other organic materials into rich, organic worm castings. By using a multi-level system, this composter encourages the worms inside to keep moving, eating and producing. Included in the Can O Worms unit are 2 round, large capacity working trays where the worms eat the food, a round, fly-proof, ventilated lid, a ventilated collector tray with worm mound, a compost tea tap, legs, coir brick and instruction booklet. Made from 100-Percent recycled black plastic, the Can O Worms makes the worms feel like they are in the dark depths of the Earth. With two working trays, you can continuously add food scraps to the bin, cycling the trays on top. Because the Can O Worms stands off the ground on legs, removing the worm tea from the tap is easier than ever. The trays include a molded mound that encourages worms to move from the collector trays to the working trays. A unique flow through ventilation improves performance and prevents collected tea from turning anaerobic. The included coir brick creates a cool, earthy home for the worms, so you can get started on composting as soon as you get it assembled.

Everyone should keep a worm bin; and the Can-O-Worms works well. I keep mine right in my kitchen, so I can easily deposit vegetable debris it it. I have it sitting on a round dollie, so I can roll it around, since I have a tiny kitchen. I recommend the dollie to anyone who buys a worm bin of any kind; because once you have filled your bin with worms and vegetable debris it will weigh a lot.

It takes a while for a worm bin to produce enough worm castings to put out in the garden; but in the mean time the bin is constantly producing "worm tea," which plants love. The "worm tea" keeps potted plants happy, even though their roots are confined. I advise leaving the spigot on the Can-O-Worms open all the time with a collection vessel under it. That way the "tea" is constantly dripping out, and does not fill up the sump. With the dollie, you can put the vessel under the spigot on the dollie, so the whole thing rolls around together.

Although at first it might repulse you a bit to keep rotting vegetable matter around -- especially in the kitchen -- I have found that my initial repulsion has given way to fascination with the transformation going on inside the bin. Like a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly inside its cocoon, your vegetable detritus transforms into sweet, rich earth inside your worm bin. I have come to view my worms as miracle-workers.

And here is a tip that you won't find anywhere else: to keep your worm bin from emitting any unpleasant odors, be sure to put plenty of parsley stems in the bin, along with the rest of your vegetable debris. It will do you good to eat plenty of parsley leaves, and the stems will keep your worm bin from smelling.

We have had our Can o' Worms for about 7 years. It is a wonderful eco-friendly way to create nutrient rich mulch and "worm tea" for your garden. It is also a great way to reduce your environmental footprint by making good use of your organic waste yourself rather than throwing things in the landfill or down the sink disposal. One minor drawback is the little plastic tap on the bottom of the can did wear out, and we had to buy a new bin, but 7 years is a pretty good lifetime for a $99 investment. Also, the little holes between the levels sometimes get clogged, but occasional cleaning (take out the tray and spray it with a hose) minimize this issue. We highly recommend this product.

This is a great alternative to trekking to the back of the yard to dump the garbage. I wish it could take more garbage at a time but I can get almost all our veggie scraps in there since we have bunnies who help out with processing the scraps as well. I have it outside because it gets a lot of fruitflies in the fall, but it is just ouside the sliding glass door and there is no smell. I started out with twice the amount of worms because I want it at full capacity as quickly as possible. I bought the worms locally and then online and was happiest with the online worms which were bigger and healthier than the locally bought worms.

This product works very well if you want to compost using worms. It is made of recycled plastic, so you don't need to worry that it's creating more waste for the planet. Worms quietly produce pounds and pounds of nutrient-rich "vermicompost" that will help your garden and houseplants thrive, and dispose of your old papers, vegetable rinds, coffee grounds and veggie peelings in an earth-friendly way. I LOVE MY CAN o WORMS!

I bought this product because I wanted to cut down on food waste but was rather weary. Slimy worms reminded me of elementary school's "everybody hates me..." So far I have not touched any of my 2,000 worms and to be honest, I now consider them a part of my 'family'. There are no odors and the worms hide when I open the top to add more food. (They don't like light.) I keep them indoors in my basement. I was a bit confused with the instructions that came with the product but I had previously purchased 'The Worm Book' so it was no big issue.

Our little friends seem to be thriving in our can-o-worms contraption. We have multiple generations and they seem to be able to move easily to the upper levels. We were suprised at how quickly they filled the bottom layer requiring us to add additional food stuffs in upper shelves. Our flowers love the fertalizer and our little one loves the new "pets". Most of all, it is great to be using an earth friendly method to improve our garden...all from our veggie food wastes.

The worms we purchased (from a friend) came with a square version of the worm farm. We were happy to have purchased this version as it is much larger and user friendly. Best of all it too is made from recycled materials! We even used the packaging for worm bedding.

I'm not sure I would recommend storing this system indoors as we are currently battling vinager flys. These flys do not harm anything in the shed, but we would not like them flying around inside our home!

We've had our worm bin for about 6 months. It's my second kind of bin, and the stacking trays definitely work better than a single tub. Generally, the Can-O-Worms works fine, but I find myself wishing it could process more food. We're a vegetarian family of four, and we frequently find ourselves getting ahead of the worms in terms of how much food they consume. If you add too much food to a bin, it starts to smell. So we end up tossing the food in the trash, which, among other consequences, undercuts that "warm and fuzzy" feeling you get from composting. I'm thinking of getting a second bin to resolve the capacity issue, but I'm going to wait another six months or so to see if the processing time improves as the worm population grows.
