The All Seasons Indoor Composter kit is a unique, in-house system used to recycle kitchen scraps into an organic compost soil conditioner. The most effective method of fermenting is through anaerobic (without oxygen) fermentation. This process prepares the scraps for burial in less than half the time of conventional composting methods without any unpleasant odors. This system ferments and pickles your food waste in less than half the time of conventional composting methods without odors. The All Seasons Indoor Composter includes two unique features, the strainer and spigot, allowing the moisture released by the scraps of food waste to be drained out to prevent spoilage. This liquid can be used as a fertilizer for household plants (1:100 dilutions) or to clean your kitchen and bathroom drains (undiluted). The air-tight lid, which ensures anaerobic fermentation, must be pressed down firmly after each use. The lid is made of high quality plastic that is also flexible and may not lie flat. This warping will not affect the efficacy of the air tight lid. The All Seasons Indoor Composter kit can be easily implemented in an indoor environment making it useful for apartment, school, household, restaurant, business or wilderness use. Each composting kit comes with complete instructions and a bag of All Seasons Bokashi. The All Seasons Indoor Composter, used in conjunction with All Seasons Bokashi, provides the ideal conditions to activate anaerobic fermentation that accelerates the composting process, while eliminating odors and deterring pests.

True this process of composting indoors is quite different than what we're used to in the garden but the Bokashi did all it said it would and I'm very pleased with the product. Towards the end of the process I did find a smell but only when I opened the unit and it disappeared quickly. The bin really is air-tight and no one would ever guess I kept compost under my kitchen sink.
Before we start....THIS IS NOT A TRUE COMPOSTER. It merely STARTS the composting process. You will still need to bury it in soil to get the benefits of your waste products. I will also tell you at the end how our home resolved this.
Pickles the waste. Excellent for scraps, bones, leftovers that ARE NOT moldy, etc.
Has a strainer for easy catch of the "bokashi tea"
Has a spigot
Comes with the bokashi bran
Seals to prevent air from getting in
Smell isn't horrendous, as long as you have used enough Bokashi bran
NOT ENOUGH BOKASHI....We have a three member family and we definitely needed more bokashi. You're supposed to completely cover the scraps every time you throw stuff in there....that definitely adds up!!
Bucket needs to be bigger. We found ourselves full within a couple of days.
You need to make sure that the scraps are NOT sitting in the "tea" at the bottom, so make sure to drain every few days.
Ok so tips:
We used a square rock to press the food scraps against the bokashi bran, this means better contact, means it won't go bad.
You are literally fermenting the scraps and they are prone to getting the nasties in there....be careful.
Do NOT allow flies to get into the bokashi bucket, it's just one big buffet for them...AND THEIR BABIES....EEEKKK!!!!
Buy another bucket...or two. One bucket needs to "pickle" while you use the other one for your scraps. And if you eat a lot of fresh food(like us) and only have one bucket, you're going to have a bad time.
USE PLENTY OF BOKASHI....you can NEVER use too much. It should smell sweet and vinegary. If it smells bad and foul, it is. Dump it and start over.
How we solved the burying in soil dilemma because we live in an apartment with a porch:
We bought a big (huge) trash bin and alternated dirt, bokashi scraps, dirt, bokashi scraps, etc until it was full. Then we tossed some dirt on top. Now we will have very health soil come summer!! I would NOT recommend this product to someone who doesn't have access to outside/dirt. If you have a community garden plot, great!! If it's just you in your apartment with no time for something like this, you're going to have a bad time. OR consider donating it to the community garden plot, gardeners, public gardens, etc.
All in all this is a fun thing to do with your food wastes. It's eco-friendly, fairly easy to use, and smells WAYYYYY better than a worm composter. Plus it doesn't generate heat nor are there creepy crawly's in your house....
Happy Composting!! :)
1. Put your food scraps in the bucket (in reasonably small pieces)
2. Sprinkle some bokashi on it and mix it in
3. Sprinkle a little more at the top
4. Cover it with a plate (or something similar)
5. Seal up the bucket
6. Empty the liquid that drains to the bottom every couple of days
The great part about this is that you don't have to wait for the compost to be ready for you to have fertilizer for your plants. The liquid that drains from the bucket (aka bokashi tea) can be diluted roughly 100:1 and used to water your plants. I have done this and they all have started to grow very nicely.
As for the smell, it does have a smell of something fermenting such as beer. If it smells rotten then it means you are not doing it correctly. Either you did not put enough bokashi or did not empty the water. I have found that emptying the water is a bit tricky. Water tension or something can keep the water from flowing from the nozzle correctly thinking you have drained all of it. Either shake the bucket or fiddle with the nozzle to make sure all the liquid is out. Depending on what you put in the bucket, you can end up with a lot of liquid. Keep in mind you can also pour them down drains to help clean it out. I have yet to notice a difference though.
I highly recommend this product as I felt so guilty throwing anything I didnt finish, or just random food scraps in the trash. I now feel much better knowing I am putting that all to good use now. Also, you dont have to take out the trash as frequently since the food wont stink up the garbage.
