Didn't realize how much food waste my household was producting. We run a bucket every day or so. My compost ing and worm bin are very Happy.
Hi Andy, thank you so much for your review! Happy FoodCycling!
So far, so good!
This has been an excellent companion to my composting worms as I don't have enough to process all of my food scraps. I love that I can now process all my food scraps. I don't put anything down the garbage disposal, so I used to dump out my sink net in the garbage, which would then start to smell and attract flies pretty quickly due to the inevitable moisture. Now I can put it in the FoodCycler, which is great! The unit is very quiet, which is nice, and I was surprised that it doesn't get that hot. The recommended 6" gap to leave behind the unit is definitely enough.
Love it. Ordinary composting took months and the end product was hard to separate from newly added materials. This is ground up and ready to go in hours. No shoveling, no buckets, no bugs. I love it and recommended it to my friends
Great product except...
Keep in mind it takes 500 watts of electricity to run. Sometimes it will run overnight depending on what's in it. Not a good footprint. The best part though, we're not sending garbage to the trash to steam plant any more!
Hi Diane, thanks so much for your review! We just wanted to let you know that our FoodCyclers use 0.8 kWh to process - much less than most kitchen appliances! Food waste which decomposes anaerobically will generate a considerable amount of harmful methane gas emissions that are 30x more harmful to the environment than the C02 emissions from your cars. If you check out this link: https://www.nofoodwaste.com/pages/municipalities you can take a look at some of the research we've compiled showing the carbon emissions associated with FoodCycler use compared to other waste diversion methods. As you can see, FoodCycler is one of the lowest emitters of carbon emissions, and certainly the most user friendly. Thank you for helping to environment, one cycle at a time! Take care, Jillian & The Food Cycle Science Team
I have enjoyed the FoodCycler. I have had to cycle several batches one after another because of the limited amount it will hold, but I recognize that a larger volume would take a very long time to process.
