5 Star Compost Bin as rated by customers across the UK.
I am absolutely astonished at how good the compost is (and completely odour-free, too), and how incredibly easy the bin is to use. Honestly, i don't do "gushing" reviews, but this is the one exception.
Never looked back - Had HOTBIN 2 yrs now replacing two compost bins. Sits by backdoor for ease of reach. Yes you have to work a little extra at it but is worth it for the speed and beautiful compost received.
Bin arrived very promptly, Superb after sales advice by phone, Excellent instructions and a wealth of info available on-line. A real talking point with friends and neighbours. Wish I had bought one before.
I can honestly say I am obsessed and completely blown away by hot composting and your product. Its happily composting at 70°c (inside temp). Haven't enjoyed a product so much in years!
Prompted by a letter from the district council advising that they were charging for garden waste collection I decide to go ahead with a purchase. That was in Feb, this year. After 11 weeks, I am pleased I did.
We have had it 6 weeks now and it’s amazing, the only real issue is that we don't have two. We both love feeding it and checking the temp. So far we have managed to hit and maintain 60°C using…

How does composting work in the HOTBIN?
Simply: Add kitchen and garden waste to your HOTBIN, get rich compost out.
In a nutshell (yes you can compost those as well), the HOTBIN is an aerobic compost bin that gets HOT.
When we say HOT, we are talking about temperatures of between 40-60°c; it’s this heat that allows bacteria to break waste down into compost in just 30 – 90 days, not to mention killing off weed seeds and pathogens!
To reach these temperatures you need to feed the bacteria in the bin and provide them with oxygen. In the HOTBIN you can feed them with a wider variety of waste than traditional cold composting heaps and divert more waste from landfill in the process. Pretty good!
Simply add anything from cooked food to garden waste then add some bulking agent and shredded paper or torn corrugated cardboard to the mix to keep the air flowing inside the bin. Once the bacteria are happily eating away, the heat in the HOTBIN will rise and the compost will follow.
All of this without an untidy compost heap, back breaking turning and stinky odours thanks to the integrated bio-filter minimising them and reducing the attraction of vermin and flies to the bin.
In 30-90 days from when you are hot composting, depending on the type of compost you would like, simply remove the front hatch and harvest your high quality HOTBIN compost. Job done!
