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

After searching online I couldn't believe how inexpensive they were compared to any other bokashi bins. When they first arrived, the lids didn't find on properly (which makes a nonsense of keeping them airtight). I initially went down the thought-spiral of "well that's what you get when you order the cheapest" - but thankfully, because I think highly of the Ethical Superstore, I decided to email them. They arranged for 2 replacement lids to be sent out immediately. I honestly didn't think that would solve the problem but it totally did and I'm delighted! Yes, there are more robust models out there but they are mostly double the price or more. I haven't had a single issue apart from that initial hiccup and I've been using them for over 2 months. I wonder whether some of the leakage issues could be to do with people not assembling them correctly? I haven't had a single issue in that regard, and they seem to be very functional. Also very happy with the customer service.

Sorry to say that the lid has split on one of the bins rendering it useless. I was conscious that these were at the cheaper end of the scale. I'm going to look for a sturdier replacement, ideally with spare parts so I don't end up with a lump of redundant plastic again.

Have just filled the first bokashi bin that is now outside, and have just started the second bin. Will have to wait a couple of weeks before I can see the results. However, given the different kitchen waste that went into the bin, there was no smell at all, and I have been using the run off to nourish my plants. I'm delighted with the bins as standard compost bins take ages to break down waste.
