      I live in a small urban apartment. There is really no other way to compost. Finally! It is great to be able to do this indoors. I've had this for about two and a half years and just love it. When I was growing up we had a big compost bin in the back yard and it just sat there and once a year (in the spring usually) we would harvest it and spread it out on the garden when we did the planting and the ground thawed out. This type of compost maker is very different because it is hot all year round and you get compost every few weeks. It comes out hot and steamy which we never accomplished when I was growing up. You do have to follow the manual to balance the greens and browns but they give you everything you need and it is very easy once you get into it. Yes overall I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in composting and lives in an apartment. Even if you have a house with a back yard you could use this because it is easier and all year round.
