Selected Composters – How Did We Choose Them?

From among the very many composter models we show on this site only two or three of each type. How did we choose these?

We believe that customer reviews are a better guide than manufacturers’ claims. Firstly, then, we look for products that ideally have more than twenty reviews on Amazon.com (just occasionally we may include products with fewer) and an average score better than 4 on a 0-5 scale. Subsequently we take account of comments on:

  • ease of installation
  • simplicity of operation
  • maintenance and repair
  • weather resistance
  • general user satisfaction

On occasions we may include products that fall outside the above criteria, for example if an item is new and has not yet been widely reviewed or where we feel it fills a particular need. Whilst we seek to be fair and honest in our recommendations, please, always do your own due diligence. Ensure that you only order what you are convinced will suit your specific requirements.

Below you will find our selection. Click here for our TOP Choice. Remember, though, that much depends on your precise needs and location. This may not be the best for you. Read the descriptions and reviews carefully before purchasing.
