1. Insert organic waste.
Once the non-organic materials have been removed, the remaining organic waste (e.g. kitchen prep scraps, dining room table scraps & bones, 15-20% uncoated paper/cardboard, etc.) is fed into the top of the Food Cycler. The hatch is closed and the “On” button is pushed.
2. Turn the “Power” knob and press “On.”
The Food Cycler’s agitators break the food down into small particles, heating it to 180°F/82°C. This decomposes and deodorizes the mixture while sterilizing seeds and killing bacteria. The entire process takes less than 24 hours and results in approximately 90% mass reduction.
3. After automatic shut-off, press “Discharge” to open the output door and discharge the residue.
After completion, the dry humus-rich soil amendment is automatically discharged from the front door. This residue can also be used as a compost accelerant, bio-fuel, animal feed or pet food. In addition, the potable water can be reclaimed for use in gardens, landscaping and cooling towers.
