Pros: high quality, effective, easy to use
I was very wary of the previous reviews but felt the upsides of this unit would be worth the difficulty of putting it together. All told it didnt take me anywhere as long some reviewers but it was certainly at least an hour. I have owned this since spring and have turned three great loads of compost already. This composter is very high quality and easy to use.

A bear to assemble Date: May 30, 2010
Pros: effective
Cons: assembly is terrible
Before I bought the E, I watched the video and read all reviews. I am able to put together just about anything you throw at me...this took 5 full hours to assemble. For a guy who has built houses, this took me by surprise! Good heavens. However, quality of materials seems very good and ease of use--excellent.

A great concept Date: July 14, 2009
The ECOmposter didn't work as well as I expected it to and it had a few little quirks... There were 3 main reasons that I returned the product and they are as follows.
(1) I felt that the wheels on the base for rolling it might have been a little undersized.
(2) The material that it is made of has a tendency to sag/give when it was in the sun and because of the dimples formed at each wheel site made it extremely difficult to rotate.
(3) I also thought that the internal air tubes tended to keep the raw ingredients of the compost balled up into a ball at the center of the unit.
If I had a grassy back yard to roll the unit around on I might have opted for the regular base but my gardening area is basically concrete and gravel with a couple of raised beds. I did find it easier to rolled around than rotate on the stand but the concrete was putting excessive wear on the outside of the composter and I felt that it would significantly reduce its working life.
Now that I have pointed of the faults I found with the ECOmposter I must say a few good things about it.
(1) It gave me a very rewarding feeling when I was able to complete the jigsaw puzzle of pieces to get it put together (might just be a guy thing.)
(2) Adding yard and kitchen waste was very easy.
(3) It has to be the easiest composter I have ever tried for emptying. You roll it to a spot, remove one end cover, rolled it over and remove the other end cover and lift up the composter.
I am not a master composter and these are only my opinion about the ECOmposter. I have a very limited supply of browns to go into my composter and have to rely on shredded paper, and peat moss to balance out my kitchen waste and lawn clippings. I have been opting for paper at the grocery store when asked "Paper or Plastic?" because the brown bags seem to really work well in my mix. For those that want me to say "NEITHER", I am not at that point yet.

So, If you have a grassy area with shade then I would skip the raised base and just roll it around to mix. I am still working to get my composting mixture down to a science... peat moss is acting as my BROWN input these days, Helps when things get to soggy.
