Description

20L Bokashi Recycling Bin for Food Waste
No more smelly old compost heap at the bottom of the garden – this airtight food recycling bin makes recycling simpler and cleaner, with no nasty odours. The bin is made from recycled plastics, with an internal strainer and a built-in tap for extracting nutrient-loaded compost tea. This tea is a real treat for plants and will give your garden a natural boost. The odour-free bin is suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

2.5L Food Collection Container
The Food Waste Digester uses an anaerobic (“no air”) fermentation process, which means it’s important not to open it up frequently while the food scraps ferment. The handy collection container fits neatly on your kitchen counter and saves you so much hassle by giving you a place to toss your food scraps in the meantime; once you’ve filled up the container you can add a whole batch of scraps to your food bin, instead of adding them bit by bit.

700g Bokashi Bran
The food collection container comes with 700g of Earth Probiotic Bokashi bran; a fermented bran full of beneficial microorganisms that “digests” food waste, so you can use it to compost your garden. Bokashi can ferment all sorts of waste, including fruit and veggies, bread, bones, seafood and even meat scraps!

Directions

  • For each layer of food waste you add to your 20L bin, sprinkle a light layer of Bokashi bran over it, and seal completely.
  • Open the bin as seldom as possible during the fermentation process.
  • Once your bin is full, leave it to stand for 2 weeks to complete the fermentation process. (Ideally we’d recommend purchasing a second one at this point, so you can use one while the other is left to stand.)
  • Add the fermented waste to your garden soil or your worm farm.

I am very happy with this product. My bin is almost full and there is only a faint whiff of an earthy smell. It is very handy having the small bucket in the kitchen for collecting scraps. I added a tiny bit of Bokashi bran to the small bucket and that doesn't smell either. It's been a little over a week and I collected the first tea yesterday. I was surprised that it didn't smell bad either. Looking forward to seeing the results of using the tea to fertilise my garden :)

The Bokashi composter is a really great product. The small bucket this kit comes with is very useful for storing scraps from the day. Before, we would use plastic Tupperware bowls, but the scraps left them stained and really gross-looking. Now at the end of the day we just tip everything into the Bokashi composter, sprinkle with bran and leave it to do its magic. The pickle smell it produces is not unpleasant, but I found it a bit overpowering after a while.
Helpful hint:
When draining out the tea from the tap, tip the bin forwards a bit. At first I thought there was no tea, even after 2+ weeks, but when I tipped it forwards, I got about 500ml out of it.
We decided to pour the tea down our kitchen drain which was smelling quite bad. Soon afterwards, the stink was gone, and the drain was odourless.

I am very happy that my search for eco-friendly snail repellent led me to this wonderful website. The composting solutions on offer immediately caught my eye as I was fighting a losing battle with a smelly kitchen bin. I am now recycling nearly all my food scraps, no longer have a smelly bin and can wait to see how much the garden will benefit from the compost and compost tea.

I just received my Earth Probiotic Starter Kit two days ago, but Id been collecting kitchen scraps for it since the week before when I planned to order it, so its nearly full. The kitchen scraps were starting to smell, but after placing them in the composter with the bokashi bran there is no smell. Hubby says the bokashi bran smells good. The little collection container will come in useful especially when preparing meals as you can just leave it on the counter and transfer it to the larger bin later on. Definitely planning to order another 20L bin so I can rotate them. And how cool is it reducing waste and fertilizing the garden at the same time :)
