I have tried other brands before but I actually saw progress with this one in a week. I over filled my composter with dried yard clippings from piles I had made from weeks before and had it so packed that when I spun it nothing really moved. When I checked it yesterday so much was breaking down that I had thought my husband had removed 1/3 of my pile. This is the quickest breakdown to date! Great product.

It seems to work. 2 comparable compost piles (grass clippings, chopped leaves, food waste), one treated with Ringer compost starter, the other not. After three days, temperature of the treated pile was 97 degrees, untreated pile 83 degrees (air temperature 81 degrees). The compost starter seems to kick things off in a hurry, so hopefully the compost will be just about done by the time freezing weather comes.
Packaging: Some of the pelletized starter leaked out of the product box into the shipping box. There did not appear to be any damage or holes in the box, so I think it just fell through some weak seams on the box.
