I have used the Compot for about three years now & have just ordered some more for my daughter & myself. It is so easy to use & I highly recommend it to make lovely friable compost which I add to my garden to improve the garden soil – & it is free & an ongoing supply whilst using all my kitchen scraps!! I prefer to cut mine up to small pieces to aid the rate of decomposition. Thank you again Vicki for such a great product!! I love it !! So much easier & quicker than the big bin I used to use. I now have arthritis in my hands but can manage this easily.
