My can-o-worms is several yrs old now.
It lives just outside the back door, so no need always to trot down to the main compost bin with veg waste in rotten weather.
It'll never replace my main compost bins, but does produce 'worm juice' which I collect & store ready to dilute as an excellent, free, plant food.
The resulting compost I either mix into my bigger bins or use as a soil conditioner where am going to plant something.
IME it does take several months to produce a reasonable amount to use.
I dont move mine indoors for winter, but it does have a cover & is actually tucked in a fairly sheltered corner. After the last 2yrs of cold winters, have added a 'boost' of worms to mine. You can also swop worms between a normal active compost bin. (I just couldnt manage, without a catastrophy, to move mine) J.
