Customer Reviews

It's nice to know that my composter is always working, making good stuff for my garden.

We were looking for a sturdy and easy to use composter and really liked the first one so we bought a second one.
Sailor
It's so easy to move around - even if it's full, you can just roll it all over your yard.

I've had my Envirocycle for 3 years. I bought it from someone on Craigslist after it had been used for a year. Now, being it it's 4th year of life, I can tell you it works JUST LIKE NEW. I love it. I have a second composter (different rotating one) also, realizing early on that one was not enough, since there comes a time when you need to just stop adding to it and let it "cook". The 2-composter system works perfectly for our single-family composting needs. I use the compost in my flower beds, vegetable gardens, on my fruit trees, and around as many shrubs and plants as it will cover. I used to buy and use Miracle Grow, but honestly, this works just as well. Really, my plants LOVE compost and thrive with it. It's FREE and reduces the amount of trash we take out.

The envirocycle is great for several reasons:

- It rotates on it's own base, so you don't need to turn it w/ a pitchfork or anything.
- It's large enough on the inside to hold plenty of composting material. I rarely fill it completely.
- The base will fill with liquid, or "composting tea" that I use to water my potted plants, a unique feature of compost bins.
- It's easy to rotate, using the grooves around the bin. My son has been turning it by himself for the last 3 years, and he just turned 11. My other "Tumbleweed" composter he has more trouble with.
- It's easy to access, as far as the height goes. If I want to reach in and break up clumps of decayed whole fruit that occasionally gets tossed in, it's easy to reach.

But here's the biggest reason I'm writing this review: I emailed the company a couple weeks ago because somehow, the cap to the bottom portion has become lost and now the "tea" spills out when it gets full. I offered to buy another cap if they could send me one.

I like this purchase so far. It is out-of-the-box ready-to-go - no assembly required.

Things I like about it:
1. I didn't have to assemble anything. Brilliant.
2. Access spaces are limited so I haven't had an issue with critters or bugs - so far.
3. I was really worried about flies but that hasn't been an issue either - I'm treading slowly though and have only included limited food scraps.
4. Very easy to move. I raked some leaves and rolled the bin right off the base track and across the lawn. Super convenient.

Things I don't like about it:
1. The latch panel requires two hands to open - the hook is very tight. I guess it needs to be tight otherwise it might fly open when you spin it but it truly is a pain when I want to add some food scraps. I have to bring them outside, set them down, open the latch - ususally using the handle of a utensil to help me push the hook through to open it, then I can place the food inside.

Other Notes: It spins relatively easy however as soon as you put something of any weight in it, it's not as smooth. BUT it still is very easy to spin.

This is my first compost so feedback is based on rookie knowledge and experience. Overall, I'm happy with my choice. I did a ton of research reading forums and reviews - many sets require assembly, pieces break or snap, it's hard to move - once you pick a spot for it, it kind of has to stay there. With this compost, you don't need to worry about any of these things. It's so easy to move around - even if it's full, you can just roll it all over your yard. Happy composting.

This is the second unit that I have purchased. I bought a second one because I had more to compost than could be accomodated in the first bin. The unit is compact, which fits my small outdoor space; it is easy to load and rotate. The base collects composte "tea," which is extremely valuable to have when watering your garden or potted plants; it is the perfect fertilizer. I am not sure what I expected, but it can be a bit tricky to unload the compost. I use a pitching fork, which is easier than using a shovel. I highly recommend this bin.

I have a ComposTumbler 35 gallon composter on a stand that I really love. I bought EnviroCycle because I needed a second composter to put scraps into while my first composter was doing it's magic. I've had this Compost Tumbler for over 1 month. I got it for it's tea collection feature and I wanted to test out a different composter. It's pretty basic, there are 2 slats on the bottom of the main tumbler, the tumbler sits on a stand that collects the "tea" that comes out of the slats. The entire set up was easy as the composter comes complete, all I had to do was put 1 plug into hole and roll it out to it's spot and set it on it's pedestal/stand. I put veggie scraps and yard waste into the compost. Immediately, my dry leaves would fall through the slats. I haven't gotten any tea from it, but it's only been a month. I wouldn't buy the EnviroCycle again:

- the slats are too big on the bottom, the slats are needed to let the 'tea' drip out in the capture bin but they are too big for little debris that can fall out of it
- I can't leave it with the door side down because the slats are on the bottom if I want to collect tea I have to leave it with the door up; on my other compostumbler I can turn it half way that way the contents get evenly heated by sun
- it's not as sturdy at my ComposTumbler, the door latch and the door leaves wide gaps so I can't leave it with the door on the bottom. I have to leave it with the door facing up and the slats facing down which leaves my compost contents in same position.
- It's pretty full already and still fairly easy to spin but I guess I'm use to my other composter that is higher and bigger so I get more traction for spinning.
