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

although this is plastic bin, I found it very good as a starter at-home composter

I too had an issue with a leaky tap but found that it was easily resolved by emptying, cleaning and reassembling the unit. We’re on around our 3rd cycle now, and experience has taught us to chop food up small and to keep on top of draining the liquid as per the instructions. It’s made a huge difference to the waste going into my bin which was the main point of the exercise for me, and the liquid (properly diluted) makes an amazing food which has my houseplants looking fantastic. Still waiting on the compost itself to be properly ready, but signs are good. Would definitely recommend you give it a go.

Had mine a couple of months now. No leaks but not sure how quickly the compost is breaking down. But no smells - so something is working!
