    Get Composting Anywhere - Near the House on Paving, Gravel and Decking
    As the HOTBIN Composter has a solid base and is not open to the earth it can be positioned on any flat surface - in sun or shade, on soil, grass, paving, gravel and decking. This videodemonstrates that you don't need a specially prepared area in your garden to do your composting. The HOTBIN may produce a small amount of leachate which could produce brown marks on patios. This can be removed however, using water and a stiff brush.

    The Basics - Taking the HOTBIN's Temperature
    The HOTBIN is supplied with two thermometers, both of which measure the temperature in Celsius (°c) and Fahrenheit (°f). The integrated thermometer in the lid reads the temperature of the air leaving the bin. Checking the temperature on the lid and you won’t let any heat escape. Use the lid thermometer as a rough gauge to measure if there has been a temperature increase since you last visited the bin. Use the second thermometer provided to accurately measuring the internal heap temperature. Remember that if you have an internal reading above 40°c or 104°f then you can start adding your perennial weeds, cooked food and even pet waste.
