NatureMill PLUS Composter

Posted

Pros: great for indoor plants, uses little electricity, doesn't require turning or maintenance

Cons: not too many cons....doesn't produce a large amount of compost.

My family and I thoroughly enjoy our nature mill. It is one of numerous composters and compost piles we have and it is perfect for indoor potted plants and other small areas. It only takes two weeks to compost and it requires no turning or manual flipping. The amount of electricity used is the equivalence to the amount our toaster uses and it is quiet too. The Nature mill is great for people just starting out with composting!

Pros: very convenient, can use indoors

Cons: must follow instructions carefully

This is a really good invention.  It works well and gives me a steady supply of nice fertilizer all the time, even in the winter.  I wish they had a bigger one for restaurants.  Be sure to ready and FOLLOW the instructions as you can have some real problems with jams otherwise. 

UPDATE: They just released their 2010 model which they are calling the XE version.  It is listed at the companys website.



We are going to get one for the office.  It seems to address a lot of the earlier reliability issues, as you would expect with any new model.  Way to go!  I am so glad this company has stuck around and continues to make cool new products. That's all.

Pros: small, convenient, simple

Cons: nowhere to put it, want the red one

I just got my Nature Mill a few months ago.  Darn!  Now they have the new color models out and I really want a red one.  Oh well.  Such is life with new technology. 

 

But I have to say, it really works great, even if it is the plain black version.  It just chuggs away quietly in my kitchen (had to carve out a corner for it and now there is no space for my little pathetic wine rack).  I was a little concerned about using power to make compost, which seems to defeat the purpose, although it uses less power than a nightlight and I whave a few so I will just unplug one and not feel so guilty.  I've lost count of how many loads of compost I've made, and my plants are extremely happy and I have never seen them to big and healthy.  It's probaly just my imagination but then again you never know. 

 

Smells kind of like mud.  Looks kind of like mud too.  A little more chunky.  More like coffee grounds, but kind of fruity.  Definitely better than the fish heads I put in there to begin with.  Strange how you can go from fish heads to fuity/muddy/coffee-like substance in just a couple weeks.

Pros: easy, quick, convenient

 

Great machine!  I was worried about its performance as it seems their older models were not as durable.  But my has been chugging along for several months making great compost right on schedule.  I definitely suggest getting the more expensive model because that one has all stainless steel material on the inside.  I am very careful about what I put in it - no bones or paper or lemons.  It is amazing how fast it happens - with just one day you can see compost happening!  It is under constant heat and moisture and mixing several times per day which speeds up the process.  This is a great invention.  One day we will all look back and remember the days when people didn't compost - like way back when before recycling.

Pros: convenient, indoors

Cons: limited size

I really like this product and the overall concept of composting.  It is great that people now have more choice in composting than previously.  I tried the old tumbler, and even worm composting (years ago when I had a garage).  Now I have very few choices and Naturemill is the best option.  It is a bit pricy, and unfortunately the capacity is limited - don't even think about grass clippings or yard waste!  It is just too small.  But it fits nicely in my small kitchen so I guess I can't complain. 

Posted

Pros: Easily changes kitchen trash into plant food

Cons: Pretty expensive, cheaply made

I've been looking at these for the past six months and have to say that the mixed reviews had me really worried.  We do not have enough room on our suburban lot to make a compost pile, so this looked like a good solution for us.  But, the reviews and price seemed like a real gamble.  I bought ours from Target online because they have a good reputation for taking back problem products.  Well, so far, so good.  Our little machine is chugging along, mixing yucky after dinner stuff, and turning out beautiful black compost.  I did end up moving it from our pantry onto our deck since I haven't been able to get a handle on the odor yet.  While it doesn't smell like "trash", it does smell very strong (sort of like bad mushrooms) even though I kept adding sawdust and baking soda.  On the deck (just off of the kitchen) it's still easy to get to and no odor at all.  So far, I'm in love and telling everyone who will listen about our latest addition to the family. 

Posted

Pros: solid, powerful, fast

Cons: expensive

If you're going to get this, I strongly recommend splurging for the newer upgraded model - the pro.  It has the bigger motor and you can hear it grind through your scraps like nothing.  I saw a clip of the older model on utube and it definitely seems to be struggling and will probably jam or break eventually if you use it the way I do (a lot that is).  No problems yet to report, and the compost is truly amazing!  You can't buy that kind of compost!  Take it from me the compost alone is worth the price you pay for this machine, and the added convenience of not having to ferry your scraps back to the yard when it is raining/snowing is an added plus.

Pros: easy to use

Cons: must balance greens and browns

I really like this product.  It works just as they show in the video.  Astoundingly fast!  I still can't believe it and have had it for several months already.  Just be sure to follow the instructions.  It is tempting just throw any old thing into the machine.  Don't do it.  You have to balance the greens and browns.  For an outside composter you also have to do that but if you forget you will not notice because it is outdoors.  If you keep your naturemill indoors as I do, then an imbalance will cause a sour odor when you open the lid.  Add in the sawdust as they recommend, keep the balance in check, and it will smell like hay and all is well. 

Posted

Pros: easy, convenient

This is a good product BUT you really need to read the instructions, and you need to practice balancing the greens and browns.  Otherwise it will get sour odors and possibly even jam, which can be a mess if you have to in there and remove whatever caused the jam.  We have had ours for about 6 months and now it is like second nature.  We have not had a jam for several months.  They explain in the instructions how to balance the chemistry and they even include some sawdust pellets to accomplish this.  We dump all of our coffee grounds, leftovers, and nasty unidentifiable crud from the back of our refrigerator and it just gobbles it up no problem.  The compost that comes out is very granulated which is easy to spread on the lawn and not all caked up like you get form most backyard bins.
