I purchased an early model of this composter and have had nothing but trouble with it. The release door has never once worked properly, which causes the unit to become over full and the mixer to become stuck. The inside of the unit is also always VERY wet, which tends to fill the bottom bind with very foul liquid, and has leaked out on my floor several times. The mix also tends to get completely filled with maggots and then flies. I have followed the directions to a tee, with same results. I have also tried to return the unit, and have been refused, instead they send new ’techniques’ to try. It’s a great idea, but overall I am very unhappy with the unit and would not recommend.
This is a really smart machine. It takes your stink trash and turns it into sweat smelling treasure. I can’t believe we’ve been trowing out all of our earthy refuse all these years. Compost is a much better use for it, and with this machine it is very clean and easy to use without worms or big heavy bun to turn.
The is the best composter on the market today. It is totally automatic and easy. No nonsense. Just pop the lid open and start tossing stuff in. The first week is a bit slow because you have to wait for the cultures to set up. But after that the Naturemill is very easy. I have read a review elsewhere and it had video and showed how it worked - reall well. I am very happy with my Naturemill and I hope more people use compost in the future one way or another.
