the FoodCycler®

The fast & easy alternative to composting.

The FoodCycler operates an automated program drying, grinding and cooling to reduce food scraps into odourless EcoChips™. In as little as 4 hours*, your household food waste is reduced by over 80%** of its original volume. Easy to use with one-touch operation, its unique carbom filtration system eliminates odours, making it perfect for indoor use. With low energy usage & quiet operation, the FoodCycler can fit neatly in any location.

*Typical processing time takes an average of 4-6 hours. Cycle time will vary depending on the types of food being processed and the total moisture content. Total maximum processing time is 8 hours. The cooling phase takes up to an additional 30 minutes.

**The volume of the bucket contents may be reduced by over 80% depending on the amount and moisture content of the food scraps being processed.

***The FoodCycler® uses 6 times less energy per month when compared to the daily use of an average household dryer at an average of 0.8kWh per cycle. Source used to estimate monthly kWh comparables

Product DNA

Reduce your foodprint by over 80%

The FoodCycler reduces food waste by over 80%** of its original volume, transforming your food waste into sterile and odourless EcoChips. The grinding bucket can contain up to 2L of food scraps that would be reduced to 0.34L EcoChips. Foodscraps go from landfill to handfull in just a few hours.

3-stage foodcycler® system

Using an automatic 3-stage cycle, the FoodCycler dehydrates, grinds and cools down your food waste while filtering odours and methane gasses. During the 'Drying' stage, your household food scraps are dehydrated and moistures removed. Then, during the 'Grinding' stage the blades pulverise your food waste into small particles. The 'Cooling' stage cools the resulting waste, the EcoChips.

Odourless process and storage

The two replaceable carbon EcoFilters™ direct and filter air flow during the process, making for a clean and odourless cycle. Prior to cycling and when food waste is stored in the bucket, the lid with integrated carbon filter helps reducing ambient odours.

Compact design for indoor use

Conceived for the modern home and lifestyle, the FoodCycler is designed for indoor use and can be placed or stored in any location. It can easily fit in any accessible spot in your kitchen, laundry or garage, while you can keep the removable bucket with integrated carbon filter lid to manage odours on your benchtop or under the sink.

Quiet and low energy usage

The sophisticated sensor technology defines each individual cycle by monitoring the dryness and humidity of the food waste, allowing minimal energy usage with maximum efficiency. On top of that, the Twist & Lock lid prevents noise (but also odours) during the process. As a result and while in operation, the FoodCycler makes less noise than a dishwasher.

Easy to use one-touch operation

Load the bucket, lock the lid and press start. That's as hard as it gets. The one-touch operation start button makes it easy to use and the LED lights indicate the different cycles in progress. If you find that you have more waste to add to your cycle while the unit is running, you can also use the 'Pause' feature (only during the Drying phase).

Easy to clean

The removable porcelain coated bucket is durable and is also dishwasher safe. This means it can easily be placed in the lower rack of your dishwasher for easy cleaning.
