The Jora JK270 Composter lets you make perfect compost from your household waste quickly, easily and hygienically. It is a 'continuous-use' dual chamber composter, so you can add new material to one compartment while the other matures. With a capacity of 9.5 cubic feet, it can easily handle daily composting of kitchen scraps as well as any yard trimmings. It's the perfect size for a family of four.

Features & Benefits:

  • 'Continuous-use' dual chamber composter
  • Attractive design and high quality powder-coated steel construction
  • Holds 9.5 cubic feet or 70 gallons of compost
  • Operating Capacity: 63 pints or 34lbs per week
  • Freestanding setup with easy to spin side handles
  • Side vents provide aeration which speeds the composting process
  • Reduces or eliminates odors
  • Fully-enclosed and highly pest resistant
  • Rodent proof - elevated so rodents cannot access waste


  • Exterior: powder-coated steel panels and galvanized steel legs (rust proof)
  • Insulation: Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) a stable and absolutely non-toxic plastic
  • Includes stainless steel hardware

Rotating Compost:

  • Constructed for easy rotation - simply turn by hand after adding waste
  • Fresh waste is brought into direct contact with decaying waste, so it processes efficiently
  • Adds air to the mixture, providing oxygen that is vital for the process


The composting process generates heat and different microorganisms work at different temperatures. The insulation in the JK270 composter allows the temperature to rise higher than 160F (70C) resulting in faster and more efficient processing of your organic waste. At these temperatures the process is so rapid that fresh waste starts to break down before it has a chance to rot and attract vermin and flies. With its superior insulation, the JK270 Composter will continue working through winter, long after other composters have stopped completely.

Dual Compartments:

The JK270 is divided into two compartments, so one side can be filled while the other side's compost matures. Once the compartment being filled can take no more, the mature compost can be emptied from the other compartment, and the cycle begins again. You can use the composter continuously, with no waiting between batches.

What can be composted?

  • Raw and cooked food scraps - vegetable, meat or fish
  • Cardboard containers e.g. egg trays
  • Lawn and garden waste
  • Light pet waste (e.g. rabbit or hamster bedding, not dog waste)

The JK270 composter will accept organic household waste or anything biodegradable. After adding waste, it will take about 6 to 8 weeks for each chamber to produce compost. Once both chambers are in operation you should be emptying one chamber every 3 to 4 weeks.

  • From Lexi at 6/19/13 10:40 AM
    • Can I put compostable plastic bags inside the Jora composter? I'm thinking it would be so convenient to place my kitchen scraps in a compostable plastic bag, and then dump the entire thing in the Jora composter. Would that work? Or would it inhibit the composting process?
    • The composting process would be slowed down. The plastic bag would prevent the scraps from mixing with the active compost and aeration would also be inhibited. One of the great features of the Jora is the ease of spinning the drum. This mixes and aerates the materials to speed the composting process. Using the plastic bags would deprive you of this advantage.
      We recommend usiing a compost keeper - it won't tip over, is pet proof, and easy to dump into the composter and then reuse.

  • From Walt at 9/1/13 9:32 AM
    • I am putting the JK270 together and when I stand it up to tighten the two ends, I hold the nut on the left with wrench and as I turn the nut on the right I notice the treaded rod turns also so the nut does not tighten. How does one stop the treaded rod from turning insid so it tightens?
    • Sorry you are having difficulty with the threaded rod assembly.

      It sounds like there may a small burr in the threads on the right end of the rod which is making the rod turn instead of allowing the nut to advance an the threads. Here is what you can do:

      Remove the rod or extend it enough that you can get a small pipe wrench or a channel-lock pliers on the rod (do not put the tool directly on the threads where the nut will advance). Hold the rod firmly and use the socket wrench (or crescent wrench) to advance the nut past the burr on the threaded rod.

      Now you can hold the wrench on the right side and screw in the nut on the left.

      This should correct the problem.

Love it.

By Rosalind on 3/1/14

Rats do not stick around any more, they just plain can't get into the compost. It reduces the bulk of the composting materials quickly, so the capacity seems more than it sounds. I was concerned that it might be heavy to turn, but I am finding it no problem at all, it is very well balanced. (Female, age 66).

Excellent Construction & Service

By Lorie on 3/20/13

We moved from the country into town, and our neighborhood covenants will not allow an open compost bin. We are in the midwest and the intercontinental extreme heat and cold makes the plastic bins warp and freeze shut. An open bin won't decompose in the winter. I can't imagine living a life that includes throwing plant materials in the trash. I searched and searched until I found this construction.

It is expensive, but will outlast any other bin. I also want to share that we received incredible service from Earth Easy. There was a part that arrived bent and I contacted the company. With NO QUESTIONS ASKED and NO SHIPPING COSTS and NO SHIPPING HASSLE, I was quickly sent a replacement part.

It was easy to assemble, but it would be very difficult to do it with one person. You need very few tools.

The best parts are:
1. Metal Construction.
2. Dual Bin.
3. Sturdy.
4. Easy to Spin.

After having several emails with the company, I feel very confident with their service and believe you will be pleased.

Not sure yet

By Randy on 2/4/13

When we received the composter it arrived in 2 days. Upon opening the boxes we found that it was dented and bent on about 6 of the pieces. We worked with it and made it work because we didn't want to deal with the hassle of returning it. It looks nice and will probably work like it is supposed to. However, we have found that is leaks "juice" from the compost. We have not had this long enough to give a real opinion yet, but so far we are not very impressed..... one more thing. They show a video of a guy putting to composter together. The video kinda makes you think one person can easily put this together. You really need 2 people to put this together.

Jora JK270 Composter

By Mikie on 6/10/11

Got this unit before Christmas and finally got around to feeding it. Much easier to use than my old compost tumbler (which gave to my daughter) . So far so good. Been about 4 weeks since I started the process and it is just about done. Heats up really nice which was a hit and miss with the compost tumbler.

The gold standard in composters.
I bought this for the dual bin feature. The construction is high quality, the design well thought out.

looks up to the task

By Vern on 11/23/10

Well it cost enough to get it here! But wow this is a serious unit. I don't know how the plastic composters hold up after years of sun exposure or winter freezes, so I got this steel one which looks like it'll last longer than me.
It looks real well made but I hope the legs hold up if I ram into them with a heavy wheelbarrow.
The handles for turning are a good feature cause where I live its freezing right now and you don't want to put your hands on the steel or they'll be stuck til spring.
I give it four stars for now. If it holds up a few years then give it five stars.
