NatureMill Pro Automatic ComposterBy
Compost tumblers are a great blessing for those who desire to have some compost in their garden, but don’t have the patience and the time to make an open one. These machines work by providing the microorganisms responsible for compost process the three basic survival needs which are necessary for the fast decomposition of the materials. These are food, water, and air.
These microorganisms function with the presence of compost materials, which are considered their food. The moisture and water content of these materials serve as the water while oxygen, which enters through the air vents and circulates through turning the tumbler, is important for a faster decomposition process.
One really good thing about these compost tumblers is that the previous month to year long waiting for quality compost has been cut down into fourteen days of constantly feeding, and turning the tumbler. Compost tumblers, such as the NatureMill Pro Automatic Composter, are catalysts for the fast decomposition process of compost materials, thus providing the owners quality and time-effective compost for their gardens.
Hands Free Tumbling
Unlike any other compost tumblers, the NatureMill Pro Automatic Composter has foot pedals which allow the feet to work the tumbling of the machine; whereas in just about any other tumbler, turning is done by hand, either turning a crank to tumble the compost or spinning the unit itself. By implementing the foot control, NatureMill has made composting a bit neater, eliminating the soiling and contamination of your hands and making tumbling a bit easier for people whose arms aren't up to the task of regular tumbling.
Load Materials Anytime
Another unique characteristic of this NatureMill PRO Automatic Composter is that the interior of this machine has both an upper and lower chamber - each of which serves different purposes. The upper chamber serves as the reception area for compost materials, and it is where these materials are mixed, heated and cut into smaller bits of waste. Another great purpose of this upper chamber is to allow heat to release the odor and other unnecessary microorganisms, thus lessening the foul smell of the compost materials inside. In fact, the smell of the material inside is just comparable to a sourdough.
As soon as these materials turn into fragments of waste, they are transferred automatically to the lower chamber, where they are deposited for other decomposition processes. This allows the owners to place in materials and wastes anytime of the day, without interrupting the compost process.
Adding up saw dust and baking powder is also useful in keeping a brown tint for the end product, and reducing acidity brought about by the decomposition process inside.
NatureMill Pro Automatic Composter is made of stainless steel materials and weighs about 17 pounds. This comes out of the package ready to use, so there is no need to spend impatient hours just to assemble the compost tumbler. Because of its material, this tumbler can be used any time of the year - be it during the scorching summer, or the frigging winter. You can place it in your garden, laundry, or kitchen - it just fits and looks good naturally because of its classy, but sturdy structure.
