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 quickly break down and then be ready for plants.
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 bin 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.

I bought this 3 months ago and left them in the packaging as I've been away. The bins are meant to be airtight but my lids don't fit on properly on both bins (can't get the last corner on), I know should of checked. Still having a go and have been using a week. It says on the instructions to sprinkle the bran every time used. If I continue using depends on the results and how much bran I get through.

I didn't really look at it but I fail to see how anything made of plastic can be regarded as environmentally friendly, even if it's recycled plastic. Plastic is plastic, recycling it does not alter that.

I have not had time to evaluate but so far so good.
