Great idea and it does hold quite a lot of material. I really like it. Ergonomically speaking, the barrel needs a better way to grab it to turn it as it gets quite heavy when it is loaded with material that is properly wetted down. The grab slots that are molded into the barrel are too far apart around it to get a decent turn when it is loaded and heavy. It needs more than just two sets molded into it. I do highly recommend the product though. I have it in my basement for the winter. It will leak a black liquid through the vent holes on the ends as the material breaks down in the barrel so be prepared for that. This liquid is a natural byproduct of the composting process as you must wet the material down to get the process going.

I gave this as a gift to my son, a budding gardener. He has used it since December. At first disappointed by the lack of composting taking place, he moved it to a sunnier spot, waited a few months til the sun shone on it for longer periods, and noted that composting was taking place as promised. With practice, the product from this item has helped to fertilize a chemical-free garden patch in a small raised-bed with good results. I would recommend this product, but add that nature's seasons must be taken into consideration.
This is a hard-working composted!

I really like the sturdiness of this compositor. It is a good size, not too big, not too small. It is transforming food products, leaf mulch, etc quickly and without any bad smells. My only issue is that it can be difficult to roll once it becomes fuller and heavier. I am older, but still can accomplish the task! I will recommend to everyone and will probably purchase another one!
Clean look, easy to use

This composter comes ready to use, but be prepared to find a permanent place for it first. (If you're putting it on your grass, it will kill that patch of grass over time.) While it's large and spacious, it's not as big as an open composter - like the ones you build with chicken-wire. The turning mechanism works smoothly and keeps your gardening and composting area look very clean. I think the dark exterior will help speed-up the composting process.

I purchased this Compost Wizard to help eliminate vegetable waste from my weekly trash. It has been wonderful! Not only is my trash significantly reduced in volume but the wizard is producing wonderful dark rich compost that I am using on my backyard garden! Wayfair has the best price on the wizard that I could find and it shipped fast, Very happy with Wayfair and my Compost Wizard!!

Works good when it's warm out.. not so great in the cold winters in Vermont. Happy I bought it though will definitely help this summer making nice compost for my garden.

Smaller than my last compost, but just the right size and so much easier to handle. Love the dark color and you don't have to worry about rust like my last compost. I should have done more research and brought this one first. Works great. Perfect size, so easy to turn.
Renee from Cambria, CA– Verified Buyer
I really like the barrel design and the stand on which it rests. The design enables me to more readily rotate the barrel, which otherwise becomes rather difficult when full. I purchased two barrels so I could rotate their use and thus have compost ready to spread whenever I need it.
Nice compact composter
Lauren from Bowie, MD– Verified Buyer
This composter is relatively easy to turn and doesn't take up a lot of space. The lid can be a little tricky to get back on, but you just have to make sure it's properly seated before screwing it back on.
Composting Efficiently for Beginners

This composter is just right for me with a tidy and efficient drum even I can turn. Perfection.
