Loving the FoodCycler
I was skeptical after the first round because I put in a lot of fiber from vegetables and fruits that I juiced and it turned into a cake at the bottom of the container. But I have processed two more cycles including banana peels and avocado peels and it has turned out great. My dog loves the smell and wants to eat it so I will have to keep it out of his reach. My question is can you add any paper products to the FoodCycler?
Hi Nicole, The FoodCycler is intended first and foremost for organic material, you will not damage the machine by processing a small amount of biodegradable material, such as paper napkins. At the most, you might end up with bits of heavily processed paper. However this material is still completely biodegradable if properly mixed in with your soil without processing it through the FoodCycler. If you would still rather cycle it in we recommend cutting up the napkins into smaller bits before processing to avoid creating a crust in the bucket. With that being said, since the FoodCycler uses heat and aeration to process the waste please ensure NO "compo-stable/biodegradable" plastics are added in. I hope this helps! Kind regards, Jillian
LOVE our Food Cycler
We LOVE the food cycler. The only complaint I have is that it doesn't hold enough. A family of 4 that eats a lot of veggies can fill the bucket more than once daily.
I love this appliance
I think the foodcycler is amazing! I am so surprised at how well it works - it allows me to compost in my kitchen without foul odors or nasty critters crawling on my counters. I only wish you had a bigger one.
So far so great!
I was really impressed with how it handled the first batch...a whole romaine core and avocado peels reduced to nothing! Two questions: can it handle avocado pits? And, since it’s winter and I won’t be gardening until May, can you recommend the best way to store the mulch and how long it’s good for? Love it!
Hi Maria, I'm so happy to hear you are loving your FoodCycler! The short answer is yes you can, however we do recommend only putting 1-2 in at a time as the pits are fairly hard and will take longer to break down. You can absolutely store the by-product, for up to one year. We recommend leaving the "foodilizer" in an open air container for a period of one week to let it "cure" before putting it in a closed container. Happy Foodcycling, Jillian
