The Deluxe and Classic Speedibins are ideal for home composting. If you need a composter for a school or community garden, we recommend the Scholar Speedibin as they are tougher to withstand kids leaping on them. However they probably won't last as long since the cedar will eventually rot. Scholar Speedibins last about 15 years, as opposed to the all-metal Deluxe and Classic bins which last 25 or 30 years. The Classic bin is identical to the Deluxe bin except that the Deluxe bin has a hinged lid. A lot of our customers found the lid a little awkward, which is why we made the Deluxe bin where the lid is attached. If you want a bin that is super easy to use, get the Deluxe. If you are athletic and want to save, get the Classic. We're always learning!
