On The Rock Glass With Ice Ball Maker
For those who like their whiskey on the chilled side, this rocks glass is the perfect option. Each set comes with a silicone mold that, when filled and frozen, forms a single solid ice ball that outlasts regular ice cubes. The glass itself also features a shape conducive for the ice ball, allowing the sipper to swirl with ease minus the worry of spillover.
Corkcicle Whiskey Wedge
The warm whiskey burn can end up deterring many from enjoying one of the world’s finest spirits. Here’s a fantastic solution to that obstacle. The Whiskey Wedge is an artful way to chill but not water down the dram, as the wedge is designed to melt at a much lower pace than floating ice cubes.
Orrefors ‘Intermezzo’ Old-Fashioned Glass
Truly one-of-a-kind, each Intermezzo glass features a drop of color in the stem that distinguishes the glass from anything else you’re ever encountered. It’s made from crystal, is dishwasher safe, and designed by Erika Lagerbielke; add a touch of modern to the bar.
Riedel VINUM Whiskey Glasses
World-famous glassmakers produce this fine whiskey vessel that’s made of 2percent lead crystal for enhanced clarity, a capacity of seven ounces, and features a short stem and elongated thistle-shaped body in order to enhance the characteristics of the whiskey for every drinker’s enjoyment.
If you’re more of a dreamer than a doer check out these Matterhorn glasses inspired by the famous mountain in the Alps. Each glass is crafted out of crystal and looks quite impressive when filled with a dram of your favorite whiskey. And while you may never actually hike the famed mountain, at least now you can admire it from afar.
Get your hands on this glass that was just given the green light for production after a successful Kickstarter campaign. It’s a transparent, double-walled sipping vessel formed from a specific glass-blowing technique. The Norlan weighs in at 12grams and features a faceted base to eliminate fingerprints on the bowl.
Dorset Double Old Fashioned Glasses
Getting its name from the photogenic county on England’ southern coastline, each Dorset Double is composed of lead-crystal and reflects light in all directions thanks to the hand-cut fluting on the side of the glass. Pick up a set of these and any cocktail or dram will be presented in a fantastic manner. iittala Ultima Thule
Classy. That’s the one adjective that comes to mind at first glance. Its design produces a more translucent appearance for the glass and even though they may look too delicate to wash after consumption, you’ll be please to know each piece is dishwasher safe. iittala Aarne Double Old Fashioned Glass
Looking a bit like a shot glass rather and your typical Old Fashioned, the wide mouth facilitates a fuller sip capacity without any drip and the whole piece is made from mouth-blown glass, designed by Goran Hongell. Its mid-century design is one of elegance and simplicity, marrying it well with any number of fine whiskeys.
Library Hand-Cut Double Old Fashioned Glass
Suited for a cool winter’s night next to a warm fireplace, the rough-hewn glass makes this vessel a fantastic addition to your wet bar. It’s crafted from molded blown soda glass, boasts a hand-cut design, and comes in a set of six that also includes a shot glass, highball, wine glass, flute, and martini glass as well.
Ox Horn Double Old Fashioned Whiskey Tumbler
If you’re not satisfied with drinking an after-hours pour out of glass then look to this Ox Horn built tumbler. Built from ethically-sourced horns, it hosts ounces of capacity, is polished to a bright finish, and handmade in England. Easily a more macho option for those whiskey drinkers out there.
Blade Runner Whiskey Glasses
If Harrison Ford drank whiskey, which we’re sure he does, he would certainly own a pair of these Blade Runner glasses. They feature a square design with diagonal cuts at the angles and were modeled after the exact same tumblers used by Deckard himself in the movie.
The Lowball Machined Whiskey Tumbler
As a hard working individual you appreciate the time and effort it takes to get something done correctly. The Lowball was conceived with this notion in mind and is crafted for that special moment when the day is done. The interior features CNC Lathe contours to create a perfect hourglass snifter profile and the tumbler boasts optimized geometry so it fits perfectly in your hand.
Keter 470L Composter
Wooden Compost Bin 328L in BeeHive Style 33ebertSankey 4170 Ecomax Compost Bin
If you are considering investing in a compost bin or tumbler, there are many great choices out there. Here are some of our best picks worth checking out:
As a compost tumbler can be rotated regularly, it provides a much quicker composting speed. Turning all of the materials is a great way to constantly combine the waste, allowing it to aerate better and therefore decompose faster.
With a compost bin, you need to turn all the waste manually, usually with a pitchfork or shovel. This is a rather difficult and tiring process, but a necessary one as not doing so results in less aeration, and therefore a much slower composting rate.
With a tumbler, you simply turn the handle to move the drum around a few times, doing so a couple of times a week. They also tend to be designed to retain heat much better, so combined with the additional aeration, they compost a lot quicker than with a compost bin.
Be sure to look for plastic materials in a compost bin or tumbler, as they are the best at retaining heat levels needed for composting. Most are constructed from recycled plastics, with tumblers often being a thicker material as they need to hold a lot of weight.
Bear in mind that some compost bins feature thin plastics that might be prone to breakages over time, so these may want to be avoided!
Also, some bins are made from wood, which is a great heat retainer. However, make sure it is a rot-resistant wood such as cedar, otherwise it won’t last anywhere near as long plastic compost bins.
Air circulation is very important for composting, so you will want to ensure your composter has sufficient ventilation. Using a tumbler places less of an emphasis on this as they are designed to provide much more ventilation, but be sure any bin has enough holes for sufficient air flow.
Some gardens are lacking in space, so be sure to get a compost bin or tumbler that doesn’t take too much space. Both products are similarly sized, but it’s worth remembering that bins can hold a lot waste.
This will be important for anyone with a larger garden planning on making a lot of compost. Tumblers are often limited in their capacity, so a compost bin that is the same size will be able to hold much more.
It’s good to know whether you need a lot of space for your composter and how much you intend to fill it, as it makes finding an appropriate size easier.
Yeti Was The Fancy Cooler Company
You might remember Yeti by the high quality coolers they make. Yeti coolers are expensive but super durable and embarrass the competition’s performance. The company was founded by two brothers who knew they could make a better cooler than what was out there. They formed their company only around the beverage cooler niche until now.
It seems they have taken the same idea towards how people should be drinking their beverages: over engineering the hell out of it, slapping on a seemingly hefty price tag and producing a high quality product. The result is a more expensive product than you would expect for a mere tumbler or cozy….if only these were mere tumblers and cozies.
Yeti Rambler Tumblers
When Yeti introduced their Rambler line it was the tumblers that really stood out. These vacuum insulated tumblers come in three different sizes and are a pretty unique product on the market. They’re made out of ridiculously durable stainless steel, designed to keep hot beverages hot and cold drinks cold and can go straight into the dishwasher.
As with any quality product, if you are willing to pay for a reliable solution to an every day problem, look at how the outdoor enthusiasts have solved it. For someone who takes a couple hours to drink their coffee in the morning or someone who enjoys putting ice in their cup and actually having it last, the tumblers are the way to go. The ease of use but lack of a spill-proof lid make these ideal for backyard get-togethers, commutes, or the super casual camping trip.
Yeti’s most popular product is their Rambler Colster. This is a beer cozy that is not even in the same category as the cheap neoprene cozies that basically only succeed in keeping condensation rings off your patio furniture. The Colster is a vacuum insulated (of course) stainless steel cozy that secures your beer or soda can into place with a screw on ring. Watch the video below to get the full effect.
Is it socially acceptable to bring your own Yeti Colster to a gathering where your hosts are sadly lacking in savvy outdoor gear so you can benefit from a warm hand and cold beer while humbly gloating to guests about the stellar cozy you brought? Yes, yes it is.
Give Yeti Tumblers as Gifts
Even if Yeti cups and cozies aren’t your thing, or you have too much to justify another, don’t forget about them for unique gifts. The Yeti tumblers make awesome gifts for so many situations because they capture the unique cross between luxury and practicality. Do you need a super cup that keeps your iced tea actually iced for hours at the backyard barbecue? Of course not. But if the technology is there, why not use it?
A couple Colsters are a great idea for any beer aficionado in the family. And you can’t go wrong with a tumbler for someone you don’t know too well. The cup is so durable and universal you know they will get some quality use out of it and constantly be reminded of how awesome of a gift giver you are every time they pull it out. Add a drink mix with a nifty straw to give the stainless steel a personal touch. Christmas: done.
With capacity in mind, it becomes clear that the insulation and temperature control of a coffee tumbler are incredibly important. After all, there is no point in filling up your tumbler with 2ounces of hot coffee in the morning if it will reach room temperature in less time than you can drink it.
Looking for tumblers with added insulation or a stay-warm guarantee for a set number of hours can ensure that you get a vessel that lasts as long as you need your coffee hot. Staying hot is definitely cool.
Fit Into The Cup Holder
Although people use coffee tumblers for all kinds of events and in all types of environments, there is no question that commuters find them especially helpful. If you regularly drive to or from work and sip from a coffee tumbler in the process, then you understand the importance of tumbler size.
If the base of the tumbler is too big, then it might not fit into the traditional cup holders of a vehicle. Looking for a slimmer, taller coffee tumbler increases the chance of it fitting into your car for your morning commute.
Easy To Wash
Many people use their coffee tumblers on a regular basis, which means that it is important to keep it clean and wash it after each use. Unfortunately, there are some coffee tumblers that can be difficult to clean.
A long, thin and narrow tumbler that you can’t fit your hand into may be challenging to reach the bottom of, and this can cause hygiene problems over time. There are also tumblers that can’t go in the dishwasher safely.
If you’re concerned about the hassles of keeping a tumbler clean, opt for one that is either dishwasher-safe or one that has a wider body and can be easily cleaned by hand.
Easy To Handle
As you browse coffee tumblers, give some thought to how easy the tumbler will be to handle. When filled with a boiling-hot liquid like freshly brewed coffee, many materials will also warm up, making the tumbler hard to touch and handle without getting burned.
Thankfully, most coffee tumblers address this issue. Some have an extra layer of insulation to protect your hands, and some add in a plastic grip to reduce spills and slips.
Bev-Tek 20 Ounce Travel Tumbler Cup With Lid
The Bev-Tek Performance Pint is the Goldilocks of coffee tumblers: Not too small and not too big.
The 20-ounce size is perfect for my morning brew without feeling bulky or heavy. The double-layered insulation has stainless steel on the inside, which I appreciate since it won’t impact the taste of my hot beverage.
The exterior is just as impressive thanks to a sleek black hue with a stainless steel rim at the top. The exterior is also easy to grip and doesn’t create condensation if you’re in the mood for iced coffee.
The lid fits into the tumbler with ease and doesn’t require threading, which can go a long way in preventing spills. Yeti Rambler Tumbler Stainless Steel
The Yeti brand has a reputation for keeping cold drinks chilled for long periods of time, so I was curious to see whether the Yeti Rambler 30-Ounce Tumbler in Stainless Steel would do the same for hot coffee.
The tumbler does offer plenty of heat retention, but the mouthpiece’s straw opening is always open, which reduces how long liquids can stay hot. While the tumbler itself is very durable, the gasket connecting the lid and the tumbler can wear down easily, making replacement nearly inevitable after six months.
Tervis Harry Potter Marauders Map Tumbler With Brown Lid, 2Oz
At first glance, the Tervis Harry Potter Marauders Map Tumbler is a clear winner. Anyone with a passion for Harry Potter will instantly identify the famous map and appreciate the attention to detail on the graphics.
The coffee tumbler itself is suitable for hot or cold drinks, but it isn’t ideal when it comes to keeping liquids hot for long periods of time. Overall, this tumbler seemed to fare better with keeping iced coffee chilled.
The coffee tumbler is safe for microwave use, however, and this made it easy to warm up the contents when they got lukewarm. While this is a fun novelty gift, it might not be great for someone who wants to sip their coffee or keep it warm while on a long car journey.
Timbr Tumblers Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Travel Mug
If you look at the Timbr Tumblers 30-ounce tumbler on its own, it is clearly a durable, attractive and appealing vessel perfect for travelers or commuters. However, I was less impressed once I started to look at the various accessories it comes with.
The idea of an optional handle that can slide on and off the tumbler is promising, but I found it difficult to put on or take off when the tumbler was full of hot coffee. Once again, this tumbler has a clear lid, which I found unappealing since the material can begin to look worn after just a short period of time.
THERMONATOR 2X Insulated Stainless Steel Travel Tumbler
The Thermonator 2X Insulated Stainless Steel Travel Tumbler has a sleek design that makes it look more expensive than its price tag. Unfortunately, the exterior of the tumbler can be difficult to hold securely when it is wet, particularly since there is no handle.
The ergonomic design does help it to fit cup holders perfectly, but the narrow shape means it is difficult to keep clean unless you place it in the dishwasher.
The tumbler comes with a clear lid that starts to show wear and residue over time, which isn’t pleasant to look at when you’re drinking out of the tumbler.
Bins traditionally are larger than tumblers, and really they are simpler to use. You just dump all your waste into the bin, pretty simple. Bins are also stationary and do not rotate like a tumbler does, but the downside is that they do not aerate quickly causing them to take longer to convert to a usable compost soil. This results in only being able to run a few compost cycles annually.
Some folks use multiple bins and rotate them to keep fresh compost year round, so you can certainly do that and to accommodate yourself to the different growing seasons.
Who this is for
You may ask, “why do I need a tumbler?” Well, what we’ve discovered in talking to our readers is that there is—apparently—infinite curiosity about what to carry a beverage in. Over the past year, we’ve offered guides to water bottles, hydration packs, wine glasses, coffee mugs, and more, and still, we get questions about things like tumblers (hence this guide) and growlers (a jug for beer; we’ve got a guide to them in progress). We don’t expect to go further down that soggy road into lesser-known vessels—no goatskin botas or maté gourds (we hope)—but the idea of owning multiple means of avoiding landfill-clogging disposable bottles and cups is one we like. We hope you do, too.
The cold test
We pulled our fast-to-heat-up-on-the-inside black sedan into the parking lot in front of the 7-Eleven in downtown Salt Lake City. The outside temperature gauge read 9°F—typical for the high desert of Utah mid-summer. With the closest watering hole slightly out of range for a quick dip, we opted for a tried-and-true American classic instead—the 7-Eleven Slurpee. Conveniently, we had 1insulated tumblers to fill.
Our control Slurpee in the standard 7-Eleven plastic cup lasted about an hour, while the insulated counterparts were continuing to hold form at approximately 50 percent the original density into hour three.
We filled them to the brim with 26.°F icy Slurpee and capped each with a lid and straw.
All 1sat in the front seat of a black car on the roof of a downtown parking garage, where the internal temperature topped out at 11°F. We checked the progress of melt every hour without opening the lid to verify there was still some bit of slush in the tumbler. If the Slurpee turned to pure liquid, its tumbler was out.
Our control Slurpee in the standard 7-Eleven plastic cup lasted about an hour, while the insulated counterparts were continuing to hold form at approximately 50 percent the original density into hour three. By hour four, the Corksicle was the first to have its contents fully liquified and the Coleman was on the verge. At hour five, the Reduce, Mizu, and EcoVessel contained liquid.
The Ecco Vessel 16-ounce tumbler is superb in all ways from insulative performance to hold ergonomics and lid sealing, however we felt it was just too small. They are coming out with a larger size in 2018, and we’ll test it then.
Pelican Travel Tumbler: A top performer in insulation, plus we really liked the splash guard on this lid. It’s just a very big vessel, too burly (like, way burlier than the Yeti) for most. If you’re a big person that likes big stuff (and Pelican even chatted with us about this), this is the tumbler for you.
Otterbox Elevation 20: Feels massive in-hand, and since stainless steel is the only option, it requires an extra rubber sleeve to hold comfortably or to avoid getting too hot in the sun.
Reduce Cold Vacuum Tumbler: The lid felt fussy, with multiple flips for the mouth piece and the straw hole.
Zoku 3-in-Tumbler: Our testers were really affected by the rounded—perhaps voluptuous?—shape of this tumbler. That may seem overly dramatic, but unlike other, straighter designs, our testers tended to set the Zoku aside.
Coleman Brew Insulated Steel Tumbler: We wanted to love this design, as it fit well in the hand and had a rare, no-skid bottom. But it did poorly in insulation tests.
Camelbak Kickbak Tumbler: Hot and cold retention was really good, but the two-sided flip lid on the Camelbak was polarizing. It was both a design that solved all sorts of issues—splashing, straw access—yet some testers really hate flipping lids.
Primus Tumbler: Set for release next spring, we set it aside early since it only comes in stainless steel, which can get uncomfortably hot to the touch.
Mizu Tumbler: Also only available in stainless or black, uncoated metal. Performed at the lower end of our insulation tests.
Corksicle: One of the only tumblers with a no-skid bottom, and in possession of some other good design elements as well, including a splash resistant lid, ergonomic grip, and approximately one billion colors to choose from. Performed on the lower end of the insulation tests.
Double Wall Vacuum Insulation
You’ll see this feature on most tumbler descriptions, and it’s very important feature for maximum temperature regulation. The inside layer or wall retains the temperature of the drink inside, while the outside wall keeps your hand at room temperature. With two layers of regulation, the drink isn’t affected by the outside temperature.
As a bonus, your drink is always comfortable to grasp. It won’t burn your hand for hot drinks, and won’t leave your hand covered in condensation or sweat from a cold drink. Some even have triple vacuum layered insulation, but you’ll probably be just fine with double.
Stainless steel is the absolute best material to look for in an insulated tumbler. It creates the environment for insulation, with superior heat conductivity and the ability to retain coolness like a freezer.
Aside from its temperature regulating assets, stainless steel is also stain and rust resistant, perfect for coffee or other drinks. Look for “food-grade” stainless steel, or better yet BPA-free stainless steel, to ensure the healthiest container for your drinks. It’s also very aesthetically pleasing.
If you can find an insulated tumbler with some sort of rubber grips, that’s a great feature as well. While your hand won’t get burned or sweaty due to the double wall insulation, stainless steel can still be somewhat slippery, so finding some sort of rubber grip around the perimeter of the tumbler can prevent any potential dropping or other accidents.
The Yeti Rambler has a DuraCoat colored coating on the outside that improves grip.
Some come with rubber grips around the bottom as well to make sure they don’t slide off surfaces (Such as when you rest the travel mug on the roof of your car while packing it up in the morning. A tumbler with no grip slides off and causes a huge mess and a delay to the rest of your day.). To avoid these messes and the potential loss of your drink, look for rubber grips on the bottom of your tumbler as well.
Many people believe that the only way to truly keep a drink insulated at the right temperature is by putting a lid on it. Any exposure to the outside temperature, even with double wall insulation, can compromise the internal temperature. Therefore, you’ll want the strongest and most effective lid available. Glass or plastic lids usually do the trick, and allow you to look into the cup to see how much of your drink is left.
The clear lid on this Ozark tumbler will tell you when its time for a refill.
Make sure the lid of your insulated tumbler has some sort of safety feature as well. These include a splash proof lid, an auto lock feature, easy slide closure, or some other built in secure closing feature to make sure it doesn’t accidentally open and spill the drink everywhere.

Decanter is commonly used to dispense beverages and not as a drinking vessel. Pitchers/decanters are most commonly used in bars and sit down restaurants. Pitchers and Decanters are most commonly made of SAN, Glass, or Polycarbonate. (also known as Old Fashioned glasses) are usually found in bars for use with alcoholic beverages. Rocks glasses typically come in glass but have more recently been made in break resistant SAN. beer mugs are also more commonly found in bars or sit down restaurants with a beer service. Because pilsners and tankards are typically frosted for maintaining a colder beverage, tempered glass is usually the material of choice.
The Tumbler Ultra-Vibe 1Vibrating Rock Tumbler from Thumler has a 1.gallon (approximately 1lb.) capacity, measuring 11.5” across and 12.5” high. There is also a ball-bearing 115V, 1.amp motor that has thermal protection. This rock tumbler comes with a one-year warranty and there is also a removable heavy polyethylene bowl. The ball-bearing motor vibrates 3000VPM.
The Mini Sonic Tumbler
Those who are just starting out in the world of rock tumbling will find that a tumbler in this price range is most likely ideal. You might not get the same overall build quality as with more expensive tumblers, but there are a lot of them that can certainly get the job done just fine.

Ways to Use Gymnastics Mats at Home
Many people wonder how a gymnast will use a mat at home. The truth is these mats are multi-purpose and can be used for much more than just basic tumbling practice. For instance, your gymnast will love their mat to practice basic tumbling like rolls, walkovers, handstands, and even cartwheels.
Mats will be used by advanced gymnasts to practice standing back tucks and front tucks too. A home gymnastics mat is also perfect for slumber parties, general horseplay, and mom can even use it for yoga practice.
What to Consider When Purchasing a Home Gymnastics Mat
If you are considering buying a gymnastics mat for use at home, you need to make several considerations before making a purchase. Below, we have listed the most important features of home mats to consider to help you get the mat you need and want.
A mat that is too thin won’t provide the cushioning and protection you want if your gymnast falls while tumbling on it. On the other hand, if the mat is too thick, your gymnast may not be able to practice stunts because their hands or feet will sink into the mat when they aren’t supposed to. Standard mat thickness is about 3/8” thick.
Before buying a mat, you need to think about where your gymnast will use it. You also want to make sure it is big enough for a gymnast to practice stunts on. Since mats are offered in a variety of different sizes, it shouldn’t be hard to find a happy medium that fulfills both needs.
One of the most popular gymnastics mats used in the gym and homes are paneled mats. Paneled mats are offered in many different colors and fold up for easy storage. This type of gymnast mat is offered in many different sizes. The most popular size is feet wide by feet long. This type of mat usually has Velcro attached on the ends, so more mats can be added to create a longer mat. Paneled mats are also often referred to as folded mats. Whether the mat you are considering is a folding mat or tumbling mat, it offers the same benefits and is usually offered in the same lengths and thicknesses.
The Tumbl Trak Folding Gymnastics Mat is our most favorite paneled/folded mat. It has just enough padding for tumbling, no slip, easily folds up and connects together if you have multiple units, it’s just perfect.
To allow your gymnast to perform a series of elements together, EXTRA LENGTH mats might be a better option. Make sure you have a proper room for the size. Check out this one for a or 1feet long mat:
Z-Athletic Gymnastics & Exercise Folding Mat, you can pick the size.
Cartwheel Beam Mat
A cartwheel beam mat is a great home mat option for a beginner or young gymnast. The mat is created with proper hand and feet placement that guides gymnasts in the proper way to do a cartwheel. Even after the gymnast has perfected the cartwheel, the mat can be used to practice handstands and handstand rolls. Most cartwheel beam mats have a beam option as well. To use the beam option simply flip the mat over and you will find a practice beam. With this matted practice beam, a gymnast can practice beam balance skills and other skills that are normally performed on the beam.
The Tumbl Trak Cartwheel Beam Mat is really awesome. It has two sides, hands and feet on one side and beam line on the other side. It also has a more variety of colors to choose from.
An incline mat is perfect for young gymnasts that are learning how to do rolls backwards or forwards. This type of mat can also be used for log rolls too. The great thing about an incline mat is it helps a gymnast create body awareness and lessens stress on the body while learning. It’s not recommended for advanced gymnasts to use an incline mat for harder skills because of the risk of injury. If a gymnast is looking for a gymnastics mat for home use designed for more difficult skills, it’s better to purchase a larger incline mat.
Contrary to the name, gymnastics mats are just for gymnast. In fact, this type of mat can come in handy for many sports and activities. For instance, wrestlers, dancers cheerleaders can make use of a gymnastic mat in their home. The most popular type of mat for a wrestler, dancer, cheerleader, and gymnast to use in the same home would be a folded or paneled mat. Since paneled and folded gymnastics mats can be fastened together to make a larger surface, they are perfect for use for many different activities
Gymnastics Mats are Investments that Make Your Home Safer and are Easy to Care for
A good gymnastics mat is going to cost a small investment but the benefits will quickly outweigh the costs. Even with hard daily wear, a good quality mat can be expected to last a very long time. One of the best things about this type of mat is that it is easy to care for as well. To clean a mat, you simply need to use a wet cloth and water to allow to dry. If you want to sanitize the mat, you can use a soft cloth and your favorite sanitizer to keep the mat germ free.
Encourage Gymnastics Practice in Your Home with a Quality Mat
One of the best ways to encourage your gymnast to practice at home is to gift him or her with a quality mat. Take the time to get exactly what you need and you’ll never be disappointed with your purchase.
Both bins and tumblers take up about the same amount of ground space in the yard. The average composter will take about a – sq. ft. footprint. Compost bins are not meant to be moved, since most compost bins are open-bottomed. There are some bin models with a wheeled collection cart instead of the open bottom, but this is not typical of most compost bins.
Compost tumblers are also stationary for most models. There are some compost tumblers on the market that are designed to be rolled so the finished compost can be emptied directly on a garden bed, but this does not seem to be an important feature. A wheelbarrow works just as well.
Both bins and tumblers do a pretty good job of keeping pests out of the compost. Compost bins keep out raccoons and dogs, but rodents can burrow under the base and even nest inside where the ground temperature is warm and food is close by. We had mice in the base of our compost bin, but they weren’t really a problem.
Compost tumblers are 100% pest proof since they are fully sealed. The ground around the tumbler is clean and you wouldn’t mind walking barefoot to empty the compost keeper into the composter.
Both tumblers and bins control composting odors. When you lift the lid there is a distinct ‘composting’ smell, but it is not unpleasant. When the lid is closed there should be no foul odors coming from the composting process, regardless of whether you use a bin or a tumbler.
Compost tumblers are more expensive than compost bins. As a rough estimate, they are about 30% higher in price for the equivalent capacity. The tumbler models are also longer lasting since they are built more heavily.
In general, choose a composter that has few moving parts such as a rod and gear for spinning the drum or multiple “aeration spikes” which can be easily broken by a shovel or pitchfork. Your composter should give you many years of service if you choose a simple but robust model. Over time you’ll forget the extra dollars it may have cost, and you’ll appreciate having a reliable and sturdy composter for your garden.

There’s very little that doesn’t sound incredible when talking to John Holmes, senior special effects technician on the team involved in creating the most recent iteration of the Batmobile. The Tumbler is one of the most iconic designs in cinematic history – no mean feat when it was replacing the original ‘kitsch’ Batmobile.
But what you don’t know is that while you were seeing the Tumbler being thrown around Gotham City on the big screen, it was actually designed, built and mostly used in Britain, thanks to the 20-strong team working on the project.
It was conceived by Nathan Crowley and his team originally, but the difficulty in the project came from taking the Styrofoam model from a concept to actual reality – and required a lot of ingenuity when it came to the actual mechanics of making the Batmobile, according to Holmes:
Even these were customised, with Holmes telling us that the team had to shave down the tyres to make sure the handling of the Tumbler was exact.
In terms of raw grunt, it’s no surprise that the engine was a 5.7-litre Chevrolet unit, 350 cubic inches pumping out 400bhp to allow the Batmobile to roar around. Although there wasn’t just the one car – there were multiple versions to allow for various scene set-ups.
That’s not to say that each didn’t drive, but each had a purpose. For instance, the interior of the ‘race ready’ Tumblers was just a steel frame with very little visibility; for filming a static, more luxurious interior was created to allow for cameras.
In fact, there were a number of versions that came together to create the cinematic effect of the new Batmobile. A smaller, 20 per cent size Tumbler was used to accurately film the flying scenes, but the jumps and speeds were all possible with the full-size version.
The jet-engined version of the Tumbler was also real: multiple propane tanks were bolted into the vehicle to give the real jet effect, rather than adding it in post-processing.
When it comes to temperature control for the carafe you love that the heating place for it can be adjusted to low, medium or high heat so you can control the temperature of your coffee so you can have it set to whatever you prefer. A really nice feature for those who may like their coffee hotter or cooler than that of most coffee makers. This is a great feature that help make it one of the Best Coffee Makers for most any coffee drinker.
GOLD Tone Coffee Filter
This machine also comes with a gold tone coffee filter and its own charcoal water filter that helps to get rid of any impurities there might be in your tap water. These impurities are often what actually change the taste of your coffee beverages. This helps to ensure that it is one of the Best Coffee Makers.
Lifetime Compost Tumbler
There are two types of composters that you should know about. People refer to one as a bin and the other style is a tumbler. One is more basic than the other, so you should consider how much you garden and how much compost you want before you go ahead and purchase. Both of these composters are made for heavy-duty use.
Compost bins are a lot bigger than tumblers and can be used by the more casual composter. They are the simplest way to manage your compost pile while keeping it contained, preventing rodents and animals from getting into it. The compost (when it is in a bin) is enclosed and protected. No odors can escape and the process is very slow and takes longer to fully break down.
Bin style composters in general, are pretty basic and easy to use. They take their time when it comes down to it, although regular manual mixing will help the process. That being said, many owners would prefer to just leave it alone – mixing compost by hand isn’t the most pleasant experience, it isnt for the weak stomached.
Tumblers are the best enclosed alternative when you’re looking to produce rich, organic material at a faster pace, with less work. They are similar to bins, in the sense that they allow for the storage of compost, but they can be moved and “tumbled” using a mechanism located on the side of the enclosure. They can sometimes resemble a raffle ticket or number ball mixer.
One of the biggest benefits of tumblers over bins is they work faster. This is because you don’t have to wait for the material to breakdown naturally. The mechanism allows you to spin the organic matter which speeds up the composting process by turning it over. Sometimes, if you have a regular spinning routine, you can mix yourself a batch of compost in as little as weeks.
The charm of tumblers
You don’t necessarily need stemware to enjoy wine. Follow the lead of trattorias and bistros where tumblers are often used for wine glasses. Tumblers are perfectly suited to fruity, robust, everyday drinking wines. And casual tumblers are much less worrisome when you’re dining outdoors.
I thought that whichever tumbler performed the best by holding ice the longest (or keeping my tea hot the longest) would win my vote.
But the truth was all of these tumblers outperformed my actual day-to-day requirements. They kept my smoothies cold for hours, even in the hot car when I went to the beach. And my tea/coffee stayed was all gone before it had a chance to get even lukewarm.
Because performance was so good and so similar between these tumblers it actually had zero bearing on which tumbler I thought was best.
Yeti are THE brand name in both coolers and tumblers and have set the standard that everyone else follows. For tumblers this is no exception, almost every other brand is derived from the Yeti.
The sipping hole is wide and adequate for drinking allowing the liquid to pool a bit as you drink it. Gives the impression you are drinking out of a mug.
The diameter at the bottom is a tiny bit wider than the Yeti but hardly noticable. Instead of having distinct thicknesses like the Yeti does it just slowly increase in thickness until about halfway up.
This makes it slightly harder to hold than the Yeti.
The sipping hole has a little indent making it bigger than the Yeti and allowing more air in as you drink. This means the fluid flows faster so if you like to scull your beverages fast then this is the cup for you.
However, all the things I thought would be pluses (lid cap, screw on lid, rubber base) turned out to be negatives.
Plus when I left my smoothie in the car for days on end after drinking most of it I had residue caked to the lid cap which was really hard to get out. This was the deal breaker for me.
