- It can handle meat, dairy, bones, and produce scraps!
- It’s odorless
- It’s small 5 gallon bin will easily fit in your kitchen. (The company recommends buying two so that after one fills up you can let it sit for ten days while you fill up the second, always rotating back and forth.)
- The “tea” or liquid runoff it produces comes out of a handy spigot at the bottom and is great for your garden or houseplants.
- Food breaks down to a “compost product” that can be dumped outside in just ten days. (Apparently it’s the texture of hummus and smells pleasant!)
- All it takes to activate this wondrous system is a sprinkle of Bokashi—which is made up of water, wheat bran, molasses, and microbes that break food down quickly.
But is it all true? How can you be composting meat and dairy inside and really have no odor? If does all it claims, can high rise apartment dwellers actually compost? What would they do with that “compost product” since they don’t usually have outside space? We’re both fascinated with this product but want to hear from someone who has actually used it. Thanks for your input!
