At 7-cubic feet of volume, the Compost Wizard Jr. can sit discretely out of the way while still offering a decent amount of compost. It comes in two pieces— simply place the drum on the base and start composting. Molded handholds allow for a solid grip while also serving as agitators for the compost in the interior. The unit effortlessly rotates due to its wheeled base, and you can also take the compost bin off the stand and roll the container around the yard wherever you need. The 12” twist-off lid keeps your compost safely closed and away from rodents and other animals, and each end of the compost bin has plenty of aeration vents. Made with recycled, BPA-Free plastic, there will be no chemicals, toxic or otherwise, leeching into your compost. The black color efficiently absorbs the sun's heat, helping keep your compost in the perfect temperature range of 100-150 degrees F (38-66 C). In ideal conditions, you could see compost in as little as 21 days.

When it rains, water gets into the compost and it gets very wet. Then it stinks - very objectionable. I would not buy again.
We LOVE our new composter -- it's compact and easy to turn. We can hardly wait for our first batch of compost!
Composting is a very personal thing, and lots of people do it lots of different ways. If you like a system that's already put together for you and is simple to use, this is your tool! We liked the first one so much that we got a second one too.
Very easy assembly - because no assembly required. Couldn't keep the compost wet enough when leaves were added to the kitchen scraps because the numerous air holes dried out the compost. Had to remember to sprinkle water several times a day. Can't figure out how to nicely plug up some of the air holes. Very easy to screw on the large lid. Easy to tumble but leaked lots of compost tea out the side holes and the closed lid while turning - messy. Have had this for 6 months and went back to using my homemade upright trash can composter.
This compost tumbler does create compost extremely fast, especially during the summers here in vegas. I can pull 20 gallons of fully finished compost out of this thing every 1-2 weeks. The major down side is that they didn't make the wheels large enough on the base, so when the barrel gets up to about 50-75% full, it'll bow enough in the middle to the point where it scrapes against the base. This makes it extremely difficult to turn, especially as I add more material and it gets heavier. If they redesigned the base and added larger wheels, or maybe made the barrel of a stronger plastic so it didn't bow as much, then this tumbler would be much better.
Seems to work ok. Would prefer baffles on edges between compartments but does okay. The lid or opening doesn't set down quite 'flush' like I'd like it; seems like the machining on the plastic threads wasn't quite perfect or something. But, it does work. I guess that's the important thing.I like the black, and the turning of the cylinder seems to work okay. Overall, hey, a good product as far as I know.
Well constructed. Opening is wide enough to get the product in there easily. Base is sturdy - unit is easy to turn.
Just what I wanted, opened the box, all in one piece, less than 2 minutes from opening to putting material in to compost. Easy roll to turn, easy open to fill. Low profile, black, fits into the background, hardly notice it is there. No smell. Thanks!
Easy to move, easy to use. Have had it for less than 2 weeks, so no compost yet, but we're on our way!
