,How It Works
Add waste items - any time, any day
ADD vegetables, coffee grounds - even dairy, meat or fish!
NO bones, peach pits or citrus please.
NatureMill does the rest!
The upper chamber mixes, heats and aerates.
Compost later transfers to the lower chamber, so you can add fresh items.
Remove compost fertilizer
Empty every 2 weeks, when the tray is full.
Two chamber design: So clean and easy, you can even compost indoors. Add food at any time into the upper chamber. Heat, mixing, and oxygen help the natural cultures break down the food within days - before odors develop. Push a button to transfer to the tray below. It will continue to compost there for another week, while you fill the upper chamber again. Remove the tray at your conveinence.
No worms, bugs, or trash odors: Natural compost cultures consume the food quickly, without trash odors. They produce a mild aroma like sourdough bread, mushrooms, or straw. Balance the compost by adding sawdust pellets to increase "brown" content, and baking soda to reduce acidity (both are included). An air pump draws air into the machine and out through a powerful air filter.
Use it anywhere: Fits inside any standard cabinet (cabinet kit sold separately). Keep it in the kitchen, a garage, or laundry room. Use it indoors or outdoors, even in the snow, rain, or freezing temperatures. Keep the power supply dry with an weatherproof power outlet (available at most hardware stores).
Endless supply of compost: Empty the cure tray when when it is full. You can expect about 1.5 gallons (6L) of finished compost every two weeks, depending on your actual usage. Seventy percent of the initial food disappears into thin air, as the cultures convert it into water which evaporates. What's left is a concentrated compost fertilizer. It's ready for use outdoors, or leave it in a bucket until you are ready to use it.
Good for the garden: Food compost is very high in nitrogen, which is essential for healthy plants. Use it on a garden, lawn, shrubs, trees, or indoor potted plants. Spread over the soil surface, like mulch. Nutrients will gradually enter the soil during watering and annual tilling. One batch is enough for 10-40 sq ft (1-4 sq m) of a lawn or garden, applied once or twice per year. Or use one batch per tree.
Great for the planet: Energy use is just $0.50/month - less than a garbage truck would burn in diesel fuel to haul away the same waste. A NatureMill composter recycles its weight in waste every 10 days, diverting over two tons of waste from landfills over its life. This reduces emissions of methane, a harmful greenhouse gas produced when organic matter decomposes in oxygen-starved landfills. NatureMill is made from recycled and recyclable materials. Every NatureMill composter meets California Energy Efficiency Level IV - the most stringent energy standard in the world.

|Capacity||4 gallons per week (8-15 L) Ideal for up to 5 people. Add food items any time, any day.|
Foods you can
|Accepts most foods, even meat, fish, and dairy! The hot composting conditions break down most foods quickly and safely. Avoid hard items such as bones, or fiberous items such as paper, corn cobs, and corn husks. Broccoil, cauliflower, cabbage, and related plants cause strong odors, so avoid them or keep your composter outside. The instructions contain a detailed reference sheet with specific examples.|
EXTERNAL: use in any location 0-120F (-18-50C)
INTERNAL: up to 140F (60C) reactor temperatures
|Rate of compost production||One batch every 2 weeks, containing approximately 2 gallons (8L), depending on actual usage.|
|Finished product||High nitrogen compost - a soil amendment for lawns, gardens, trees, or potted plants. Compost is ready to use outdoors.|
|Compaction||70% or more, volume and weight reduction, due to bio-degrading (composting) and mechanical breakdown|
No installation is required. Plug into a standard power outlet. For outdoor use, keep power supply dry.
For installation inside a cabinet, we recommend our cabinet kit - some assembly required.
About $0.50 per month, depending on local rates. Uses far less energy than hauling the same amount of waste in a diesel garbage truck.
All NatureMill composters meet or surpass stringent efficiency requirements of California Energy Efficiency Level IV.
|Cleaning and Maintenance||Wipe the hopper and exterior with a moist towel. Rinse the cure tray and drip tray when you empty them. Do not disturb the compost cultures in the reactor chamber. Do not use soaps or chemicals. Replace air filter every 5 years or as needed.|
1 year warranty / lifetine filter. We will provide free replacement parts, or replacement of entire unit, depending on the situation.
