Achla Spinning Compost Mixer

Pros: 100% recycled, easy to use

Cons: not too pretty

I've only had this compost bin for a few weeks, but I like it so far.  First off, it's made of 100% recycled plastic.  Awesome.  Secondly, it's easy to use.  The instructions said it was supposed to come with some hardware, but didn't.  But I don't see why it would need hardware anyway.  You just put down the base, put the bin on the base, and spin it.  It seems to me like if you were to attach some bolts, it wouldn't spin anymore.

 

So the process is very simple.  Put some grass clippings and shredded leaves (I just ran over some with the mower) into the bin.  Then toss in some food scraps and add some water to make it moist.  Put it on the base, spin a few times.  Then spin it again every so often.  That's it.  The bin also has the days of the week marked on it, so you can record when you last spun it.

 

I haven't had it long enough to make good compost yet, so I'll have to wait and see how well it works, but it seems well-designed.  It's sturdy, but light and easy to spin.  It's not exactly the nicest looking bin, but pretty inconspicuous in black.  And I got it for $170 on Amazon, which is one of the cheaper composters I could find anywhere.

Description:

Reuse your biodegradable kitchen and yard scraps using the Achla Spinning Compost Mixer. This dynamic mixer is designed to create batches of compost faster than a standard bin. To use it, place grass clippings, leaves, pine needles, and fruit and vegetable scraps in the bin, and add water to keep the mixture moist. Use your foot to spin the unit five to ten times every few days, aerating the mixture. Return the mixer to its stand, with the current day of the week facing upward, to help aerate the compost even more. The extra thick, black plastic walls help retain heat, cooking your compost and speeding the decomposition process. The plastic is also enhanced with UV inhibitors, for protection against the sun for several seasons. Small holes around the vessel allow more air into the mix, and help excess water drain out to maintain the right moisture and temperature levels. The lid easily locks in place for convenience and protection of the compost. The unique design of this mixer creates usable compost in four to eight weeks. Create a natural soil enhancer for your garden using this Spinning Compost Mixer. Dimensions: 29"L x 25.5"W x 25.5"H, 21.625"L x 13.75"W x 6.75"H stand
