Waste Is Wonderful!

Recycle waste into something wonderful! This unique, odorless indoor composting system ferments and pickles food waste in less than half the time of conventional composting methods using the Japanese method of Bokashi.

Convenient - Stores neatly under kitchen sink for easy access, every few weeks contents can then be buried in your garden.

Large Capacity - Holds approximately 5 gallons of food waste.

Air-Tight Lid - Ensures an ideal environment for anaerobic fermentation to take place, while controlling odors and deterring flies.

Plastic Strainer & Spigot - Placing the plastic grate inside the bucket and then piling food waste on top of it separates the food waste from the liquid that accumulates at the bottom of the bucket. This liquid can be easily drained through the spigot and used as a nutrient-rich fertilizer for houseplants and garden.

Bokashi - An all-natural compost starter containing beneficial micro-organisms that aids in fermentation.

Once the bucket is full, it will take only 10 days to produce a pre-compost product ready to bury in the garden. After planting, the compost will be converted to rich topsoil in about one month. Compost inoculates the soils with beneficial and effective microorganisms which detoxify chemically treated soil, feeds the natural soil ecology, and attracts beneficial insects and nematodes. It also enhances soil fertility and increases plant yield and produce quality.

Each composter comes with a one gallon bag (2.2 lbs.) of bokashi. Additional one gallon bokashi refills available.

Due to the 10-day cycle needed for fermenting, two composters are recommended to have a complete, always-running system.

I have used an outdoor composter for many years, but this indoor composter is so easy and convenient to use that I'd recommend it to apartment dwellers or anyone for whom outdoor composting would be impractical.

Easy to use

I want to plant an English flower garden in my backyard and would like to try nature's way first. I've tried composting outside but was never successful. I'm following the instructions to the letter and am hoping that it turns out as it should. The vegetables I am composting have not been in long enough to use, but I believe that it will be perfect when the time comes.

We use the product to reduce our food waste to the trash. We like that it is small enough to fit under the sink and it is very easy to use.

Good composter

I have been very busy outside of the home, so I haven't really maximized the use of my composter. What I have done is working. It's very simple to use, good size.

Fun way to start composting

It is small enough to fit under most sinks. It is easy to use, keeps the smell under control, and has clear directions. Although, I must be doing something wrong, because it's not breaking down as I thought it would. It's not producing any tea, either. But I don't eat meat or dairy, so I don't know if that's it or maybe I'm not smashing it down. I'm not giving up, yet, though. I am excited to figure it all out!

Perfect

I quickly filled it with a mix of food waste and weeding output. Within a week I started to draw off compost "tea" which, diluted, makes houseplants very happy.
