Promising to reduce your carbon footprint at the touch of a button, Food Cycle Science announced its first in-home composter this week, the Food Cycler: Home. With an approximate size of 1 cubic foot and claims of an odorless drying process that takes just 3 hours, the Food Cycler is designed to be a convenient alternative to traditional composting methods.

Of course, that level of convenience doesn't come without a cost. In the case of the Food Cycler: Home, that cost is an MSRP of $499, though Food Cycle Science says that the device will actually sell for $399 at big-box retailers when it ships out this May. Consumers eager to get their hands on a unit can also preorder one through the Food Cycler's Indiegogo campaign, where Food Cycle Science is promising to ship backers one of the first 150 Food Cyclers made in North America, along with an extra set of filters, for a pledge of $399 or more.
