The composting process generates heat and different microorganisms work at different temperatures. The insulation in the JK400 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 JK400 Composter will continue working through winter, long after other composters have stopped completely.
The JK400 is divided into two large 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 JK400 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 Zopari at 12/30/13 5:45 PM
- Can this be used in our basement? Or is it better outside?
- Yes, you can locate your Jora composter in the basement. Being in a heated environment will help speed the composting process. However you'll need to keep your compost in balance, usually by adding carbon-based materials, to ensure there are no odors from the composter.
