Product Description

The Bokashi Bin (also known as the Kitchen Composter) is a product which allows you to home compost ALL your kitchen waste including fish, cooked or raw meat and dairy products as well as any other organic material. With this double pack you can leave one Composter to ferment while you fill the other. Hassle-free to use, simply add all of your compostable kitchen waste to the bin, sprinkle on a handful/layer of Bokashi Bran and seal the air tight lid. Bokashi is a dry mixture of bran and molasses that has been infused with beneficial micro-organisms which work together to stop pathogens, prevent putrefaction and eliminate foul odours. After around 2 weeks the food waste has been treated and is ready to be added to a conventional compost bin or heap, or put into the ground where it will break down and then be ready for plant use.

Please note - the finished product from the bokashi bin is sometimes referred to as 'pre-compost'. It is too acidic to be used on plant roots and requires breaking down in soil beforehand. Simply dig a hole away from your plants, add the finished fermented bokashi product, and cover with around 8 inches of soil. Leave this for around 2 weeks and then it's ready to use directly on your plants.

The process also produces a liquid feed which is alive with beneficial microbes and can be diluted as a plant feed or poured down the drain to prevent algae build up and odours.

Contents: 2 x Bokashi Bins each with carry handle, air tight lid and drainage tap. 2 x Inner drain tray. 1 x Scoop/Liquid drain cup. 1 x Push tool. Full instructions. 1kg of Bokashi bran (3 - 4 months supply)

Bin capacity is 18L

We bought this set 3 years ago and the first thing to say is that I haven't found it priced better.
We put all of our veg peelings straight into our compost heap so this bin is only for dairy, bread, animal and cooked food waste. We have reduced our meat as we now don't eat anything but occasional fish (and were going off that too!) we also have very little food waste (control our portion size, freeze portions or eat next day!). It therefore takes us about 6 months to fill one bin and so it can sit for 5 months 'festering' before we do anything with it!
The liquid is good feed and the 'solids' get added to the compost heap.
Not experienced the leaky tap problem on either bin but would suggest putting a small jam jar underneath it. Keep any smells down by ensuring you have sufficient bran working in it ( we layer it in and top up if going slimy or starting to smell!)
Take on the potential downsides but don't let it put you off. Best wishes and happy composting :o)
