The Jora Domestic Kitchen Waste Composter.

Jora Kitchen Waste Composter.
Probably The Best Composter in the World!
This unique digester is a home composting system that will recycle household food waste and garden waste of up to 2.5kgs daily (5.5 lbs).
The "Jora" digester is like a large mechanical stomach that literally digests the organic matter you feed it. A fully insulated, 3ft x 2ft bin that bolts on to the side of your house, it is clean, self-contained, and it turns food waste into rich compost faster than the average household can fill it.
It is so well insulated that the internal temperature reaches around 75 degrees centigrade. At that kind of temperature the micro-organisms work so fast that you can almost see the food breaking down before your eyes.
Composting occurs at temperature intervals of+2 to +780C. Different micro-organisms work at different temperature intervals. Higher temperatures give a higher degree of hygienic composting, and are, therefore, more favourable. With equal moisture distribution and oxygen configuration in the Jora unit, plus with continued addition of waste, the temperature will rise to 65-750C. You don't have to buy a thermometer, as you will see the steam rising from the contents. In fact, it can get too hot to bury your hand in it - should you wish to do so!
The "Jora" will compost all your household waste including:
  • Cooked Food,
  • Raw Food,
  • Meat, Fish,
  • Dog Waste,
  • Garden Waste,
  • Cardboard,
  • Paper,
  • All Biodegradable Material

Construction The Jora is made of an aluminium casing with an outer PVC coating, making it weatherproof and rustproof. Internally, the insulation used is made from recycled plastic. The entire unit should last the customer between 15 and 20 years.
Two Compartments for Maximum Results The digester is divided into two compartments. When the first compartment is full (approx. 6 weeks) it is covered with a metal plate (provided). When the second compartment is full the first can be emptied of its finished compost.
Composting is an easy way to return organic matter to the soil. The private household can really contribute to creating a better solution to the current problem of waste disposal by composting with this organic waste composter. By composting, you will help to reduce the amount of household waste going to landfill sites and also reduce your own waste disposal costs.

How it operates:
The "Jora" digester is based on a rotating system. Rotating the unit draws air in through the air vents, and also mixes wet and dry matter. One turn of the unit with each new quantity of waste added is sufficient to aerate the contents. Keeping the contents aerated prevents them from smelling. So, when you open the unit you will get the smell of natural composting (similar to the smell of a forest floor) and NOT a nasty smell! Dry matter is also added in the form of sawdust or wood pellets, adding an important carbon content.
