The bokashi bin is a Japanese system that pickles your waste (bokashi means fermentation) and ideally suits small spaces.


Bokashi Bins

How do these bins work?

Firstly there are two bins in the pack plus 4kg of bran. 

Step 1:  You can include a wide range of food waste in your bin, including typical kitchen scraps. What sets these bins apart is their capability to handle meat, bones, and fish, whether cooked or uncooked.

Step 2:  Sprinkle a half scoop of bran into each layer of scraps. The bran used in this process is quite unique. It’s microbe-infused bran that transforms and ferments the food waste into a rich mixture teeming with beneficial microbes and essential micronutrients.

Step 3:  When the first bucket is full of waste, seal the lid and do not open it for 10-12 days. Bokashi Bins work on the anaerobic process, which means no air is needed to complete the process. Therefore there will be no smells from the bins. 

Step 4:  Drain off the liquid produced from the waste; you can use this liquid on your plants and it contains lots of nutrients and micro-organisms your plants and soil will thrive on. 

Step 5:   After two weeks, empty the bins directly onto the soil or add them to a compost bin to finish off the process. The fermented waste from the bins is packed with billions of microbes and nutrients (pre-compost) mix. When added to the soil or compost bins, these garden-friendly microbes immediately benefit the soil structure and plants living in it.

Microbes and the building block for the soil. Without microbes, the soil would be useless and less fertile. 

The Bokashi Bin is a Japanese system that pickles your waste (bokashi means fermentation) and ideally suits small spaces. You need two containers (they can be kept indoors) and particular bran inoculated with good bacteria. In goes all your cooked and uncooked kitchen waste and a sprinkle of the magic bran.

Do Bokashi Bins work? They work by fermenting 100% food waste, including meats, fish, bones, dairy products.

Is Bokashi better than composting? I like to look at a Bokashi as a pre-compost; it’s one of the best systems I have used; fill and leave for 2-3 weeks, add to your compost bin or directly to the soil and let the microbes do the work. How many bokashi bins do I need? There are three in our house, and we cook everything, so two containers are perfect for us.

Do bokashi bins smell? No, they don’t smell at all. If anything, they have a slight smell, slightly acidic. Bokashi bins are unique

You can deposit raw fish, meat fat, and cheese into the system with no discernible odour issues.

Do worms like Bokashi? In my experience using Bokashi Bins & Bokashi bran, worms love the waste they produce. If you have a wormery, add it in small amounts at the start.

Can I use Bokashi in the compost tumbler? Yes, you can add Bokashi waste to your tumbler bins but make sure you have lots of brown carbon, as composting is all about getting the balance.

How do you use bokashi in the garden? Bokashi bins make the best FREE liquid fertilisers of nutrients and are alive with beneficial micro-organisms.
Mix the liquid from the Bokashi Bins at a rate of 100-1 as it’s powerful.

    I’ve been using the Bokashi bin for over a week and finding it great. I live in an apartment and have it half full with food waste and there really is no smell at all. Delivery was very quick and looking forward to making compost.
