Overview

The Jora JK270 Composter simplifies and speeds up the process of making compost. It is a 'continuous-use' dual chamber composter. Dual chambers allow you to keep adding new materials to one compartment while the other matures. Because the unit is insulated and sealed, it converts kitchen waste to compost in as little as two weeks.

With a capacity of 9.5 cubic feet, the Jora JK270 can easily handle daily composting of kitchen scraps for a family of four or more. It is suitable for larger households, small restaurants, B&Bs, schools, and care homes.

Features & Benefits:

  • 'Continuous-use' dual chamber composter
  • Durable, rust-resistant galvanized steel construction
  • Holds 9.5 cubic feet (71 gallons) of compost
  • Operating capacity: 6 to 8 gallons per week
  • Easy to use - rotates easily for maximum aeration
  • Insulated - great for cool climates and all-weather composting
  • Fully-enclosed and pest resistant
  • Elevated rodent proof design
  • Reduces odors

Dual Chambers

The JK270 is divided into two compartments, so one side is filled while the compost in the other side matures. Once one compartment is full, 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.

Insulation

Composting generates heat, and the different microorganisms start working at different temperatures. The HDPE insulation in the JK270 composter allows the temperature to rise to 150° F for faster, more efficient processing of your organic waste. At these temperatures fresh waste starts to break down before it has a chance to rot and attract pests. With its superior insulation, the Jora composter will continue working through winter, long after other composters have stopped completely.

Rotation

  • Easy to spin - simply turn by hand after adding waste
  • Fresh waste is brought into direct contact with decaying waste
  • Adds air to the mixture, providing oxygen vital for microbial activity

What can be composted?

  • Raw and cooked food scraps e.g. vegetables, fruit, eggshells, meat, fish, bread
  • Garden waste e.g. flower cuttings, leaves, weeds, grass clippings
  • Shredded paper and cardboard e.g. egg cartons
  • Light pet waste e.g. rabbit or hamster bedding

The Jora 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.

Rodent Proof:

The Jora JK270 Composter is sited off the ground so there is no possibility of rodents or other pests gaining access to the waste in the composter.

Construction:

  • Exterior: galvanized steel panels, powder coated to last for years. The steel panels will withstand extreme freezing without developing cracks, and will hold up well to prolonged sun exposure without any deterioration of the finish.
  • Insulation: 2.16" HDPE polyethylene - a stable, non-toxic plastic
  • Galvanized steel stand
  • Rust-proof stainless steel hardware
