STEP 4: Add your scraps and let the machine work its magic
Continue to add Greens and Browns to the upper chamber, balancing the load with sawdust pellets and baking soda. In about 2-3 weeks press the “Transfer” button to dump composting food down to the lower chamber. To access the lower chamber, remove the panel on the front of the unit. This panel is made from Temperene, a recyclable material that resembles Styrofoam. Inside is a tray that can be pulled out, so that you can take your compost to your garden.
STEP 5: Remove your compost and feed your plants
About a week after the transfer, you can remove your compost and spread it in with your plants. During the week, the food will continue to compost while in the lower chamber.
