This machine has been around for a few years, is made in Korea and to date, has mostly been sold in the UK. It’s not a composter, but a food dehydrator & mulcher, so while it has many of the characteristics of a composter, it doesn’t break food down. Instead, it simply takes the water out of it and grinds it.
If you are trying to minimise household food waste, or you live in an apartment or are simply impatient and don’t want to wait around for your food scraps to break down in traditional compost, then this machine is worth a look.
It is quite light – less than 9kg and relatively small at 270(W) x 300(D) x 350mm(H). It would certainly fit under many sinks or in a cupboard. It will process around 1 kg of waste each cycle, which takes 3 – 4 hours.
One kg might not sound like a lot, but bear in mind this is pure food waste.
