It kept my kitchen clean and free of bin bags for food waste!
So easy to use! I didn’t expect it to be so quiet and it has no smell.. Was skeptical at first but now our whole family use it weekly to reduce the food waste that has always been dripping all over the floor and smells after a few hours. No more mice!
It works so much faster than a traditional outdoor composter. The traditional method smells bad and attracts lots of flies and it is very slow. Now i can do my gardening using the compost within a few hours.
I would like to inform you that i tried smartcara using 1kg waste of tomatoes, onions and banans with an amazing result for me. I obtained 84.69g of compost. Allow me to send photos to you the next time i do it again!
I wasn’t sure about ordering this product because it’s really new to the market. I saw it from ecobuild show and decided to go ahead and made the purchase.
Within 3 days i received my new food waste recycling machine and i must say the design looks neat and modern. I’m particularly pleased that it doesn’t need any installation like something under the basin. During the whole process, It’s Odeurless and very quiet. And my food waste has been reduced to approximately 80% which makes my life so much easier.
So far my experience is that the more humidity in the organic waste, the longer duration of the cycle. In general it takes about 3 hours.
For all the convenience and benefits, i give this 5 stars. If you are dithering about buying this just buy it… Money well spent. Love It !
I have had this Smart Cara for approximately 3 months. I love the size of the Smart Cara, because it donesn’t take up a lot of counter space. In fact, we have it in our utlity room, so it is very handy to store bits of recycled items before were ready to recycle it. The end product of this Smart Cara is a very dry and small fraction of what you put into it, and in fact it is to drive for fertilizer. I called the manufacturer to see if it were possible to stop the cycle are in the middle where the compost was still moist and yet capable of being used as fertilizer, and was told that it could be stopped in the middle of a cycle. I stop my cycler. After about an hour and a half, and it produces verygood results. This is what the machine is designed to do. This way you can throw all of your kitchen scraps into a very tiny container and dispose of them in the garbage. What i use it for is for composting and find that after an hour and a half, it serves this functionas well.
This is a gread addition to our recycling efforts. I have tried the big drums, and other recycling items, but this food cycler beats all the rest hands-down. It is small, quick, and very effective. I highly recommend this product for anyone who either.
1) wants to reduce their trash
2) Wants to use their food scraps for compost.
