Food Material: Optimize Your Composting Experience
The Reencle Bio Composter efficiently processes human-consumed food items like meat, fish, dairy, grains, and produce. To ensure smooth operation, cut large items into smaller pieces and avoid hard, inedible items. Aim for an optimum daily intake of 1.5 lbs of food waste. When the composter is full, remove some compost, leaving enough to compost material inside the machine to maintain a healthy environment for microorganisms. Please use the minimum and maximum compost lines within the machine for guidance.
Air: Ensuring Proper Oxygen Supply for Microorganisms
Oxygen is crucial for microorganisms in the Smart Composter to function optimally. Dense or wet materials can limit airflow, slowing down decomposition and causing odors. Keep the appliance running 24/7 to maintain the composting process. The stirring blade follows a 26-minute cycle, ensuring consistent mixing and oxygen supply for continuous decomposition.
Moisture Balance: The Key to Effective Decomposition
Maintaining optimal moisture levels is essential for microorganisms to break down food waste effectively. Aim for compost materials with a 10-20% moisture level, resembling damp beach sand. Monitor moisture by touching the compost or observing its color. If it’s too dry, add 1-3 cups of water or other liquids; if too wet, use the Dry mode for 2-5 days and pause adding waste. Proper moisture balance prevents microorganisms from entering dormant states or experiencing oxygen deficiency.
Temperature Management: Fast and Safe Composting
The Reencle Bio Composter maintains a temperature range of 129.2-141.8°F, perfect for rapid decomposition. This process eliminates harmful elements and preserves nutrients, creating compost in 24 hours or less. To achieve “Stabilized Compost” as defined by CalRecycle, maintain a temperature of 131°F or above for three days. Once your Bio Composter is full, stop adding materials for three days while keeping it on. You can then confidently remove the compost.
Compost is ready in 24 hours, appearing as, crumbly material with an earthy scent. Sift out fibrous remnants for disposal or further decomposition.
