They no longer "snap" into place.
You also should frequently check and drain the bottom compost leachate tank -liquid is great for plants diluted.

This composter seems well constructed and sturdy and I was impressed with its large capacity.

I am surprised that there have been no other comments about the construction of the Aerobin. For its hefty price tag, one would expect a well built, sturdy bin, and for the most part it is. However, the problem that I experienced really highlights the inadequate design of this bin. As the bin filled up with material and sat through the hot summer months, the sides began to bulge and now my panels do not line up correctly. They no longer "snap" into place. I have been able to reach temperatures of around 140 degrees inside of the aerobin for an extended period of time, but compared to a traditional compost pile, the aerobin falls short in the time it takes to make compost. I have had mine for nearly 2 years now, and I think it is close to retirement. I would not recommend this product to others.

I bought this composter in November 2009. It was easy to assemble and looked very nice. I was really excited about making compost all year round from my kitchen scraps and shredded office paper! The unit was VERY expensive, but it really looked good and the promise of self-aerating bin sounded really good. I followed instructions to the letter, jump-started it with a bunch of good mature compost from my 2-year old outdoor compost pile, also we were always layering "green" kitchen scraps with shredded paper as was recommended in the instructions. We never added anything to the bin that was not supposed to go there, only "green" scraps and shredded paper, never glossy one only regular paper and newsprint, or any meat scraps or food left-overs, only green kitchen scraps.
Anyway, the composting process is painfully slow, in fact I finally tried to get some compost out of the bin 1.5 years later and there is this half-composted dripping wet mess at the bottom, full of not composted sticks and packed full of earth worms. ( I like earth worms, but where is the long-awaited beautiful ready-to-use compost?) Meanwhile, the composter smells really bad, and the stink is actually very strong, I think that there is just not enough air circulation in the bin and without physically mixing the compost it just sits there and rots, just like in a regular garbage bin. Yesterday I saw a roach in it, and it didn't make me happy.
I have my doubts about the "self-venting" system, because it doesn't seem to work very well.
The lid design is not great, IMO. The lid doesn't stay open and you have to take a it off completely every time you put stuff in it and it's pretty large and bulky. They should have designed it so it stays half-open when you use a composter.

I've had my Aerobin 400 for about two years now, and have had some good compost out of it, although I have to agree with other reviewers that it takes a LONG time to break down twigs from hedge clippings. From now on I will only be using it for softer things like food waste and paper. My bin smells perfectly fine inside, and is home to about a thousand happy little worms (which I'm completely thrilled with, as they do half of the work - ironically I couldn't keep worms alive in a wormery, but in my composter they thrive!), also slugs, ants and all sorts of creepy-crawly wildlife, which all seem to be happily helping turn my veggie waste into compost. Slightly less thrilling are the clouds of little fruit flies that zoom out whenever you take the lid off, but they're only a minor nuisance. I like the fact that it's completely sealed, which is great for a tiny garden where you want to avoid nasty smells and rats.

In my opinion, the tap to drain off the 'tea' is the thing that completely lets this bin down. The installation instructions don't warn you to raise the up: they should, or, better still, it should be designed in such a way that the tap is more than 1cm off the deck, which it is currently. Because the tap is so low, I attached a piece of plastic piping to it, and have been periodically siphoning off the 'tea' to put on the garden. The tap is unbelievably inaccessible (you have to operate it with finger tips in a 3cm square hole) and has got stiffer and stiffer, until this morning I spent over ten minutes trying to open it, failed, and then spent another ten minutes wrestling it shut again. Now I have sore fingers, and achieved only opening it just enough for it to start seeping brown liquid all over my deck, but not enough to siphon any of it out.

I set this up exactly a year ago, and waited until today to dig out the compost. On the positive side, this was easy to set up, it looks great in the yard, and it is a place to put kitchen scraps to compost without having my dog get into them. However, the yield of compost after faithfully putting layers of kitchen scraps and crumpled leaves in it all year was a measly 1/3 of a wheelbarrow. At the same time I set this up I placed our fall leaves in a chicken wire container elsewhere in the yard and did nothing, no turning, no scraps, etc. and now have lovely compost, far more than I got with the aerobin. So I recomend skipping this one unless you have a yard golden retriever like I do and you need a place to store the scraps. By the way, one real negative for me on this thing is that roaches have moved in...I bought roach motels and stuck them inside the thing but still saw them today when I was getting out my compost. I just bought a different unit from our city which is simply 12 gauge galvenized mesh and it folds up neatly when not in use (C E Shepard Company) which the neighbor says gave her great compost. I'll keep using the aerobin too because it dosen't smell and eventually the stuff turns into compost...but I was disapointed with the results considering the cost.
