All You Have To Do Is Press Start

FoodCycler™ Will Do the Rest.


The carbon-filtration system has a built-in alert that lets you know when your filters need to be changed. 

Cooling ensures that your removable bucket and by-product are safe to handle. This is the shortest part of the cycle and power usage is minimal.

Grinding is the second and longest part of the cycle. The agitator turns faster than during the Drying phase to pulverize the food waste, while continuing the dehydration process via heating/aeration.

Drying is the first part of the cycle and is focused on dehydration. Heating / aeration dehydrates the food waste while the agitator turns slowly to mix and begin breaking down the organic waste.

The only button you have to worry about. Press Start and the FoodCycler™ will take care of the rest.

Where the Accessories Fit In



The unit's carbon filters sit together at the back of the unit and can be replaced by turning the filters counterclockwise (to remove) and clockwise (to replace) in the unit. 


The Reset Filter button is located at the back of the unit and allows you to reset the unit's Change Filter Light once you've replaced your filters.



The FoodCycler™'s grinding bucket is removable and can sit on your counter throughout the day, collecting scraps. Once it's full, you simply open the lid, place the bucket into the unit and close the unit lid.

The Science

The FoodCycler™ is a closed-loop indoor compost alternative, which speeds up the natural decomposition process through aerobic digestion without associated pests and odors.

The residual has a typical NPK of


Your food waste weight / volume is reduced by up to

When most people throw out their leftovers, they're out of sight, and out of mind. However, the effects of food waste are everywhere - especially in the air around us. Landfills and WTE ( Waste to Energy) facilities create emissions in collection, transport, and processing of food waste.

Food waste that decomposes in anaerobic conditions, such as landfills, generates methane gas, which is 30 times more harmful to the environment than the CO2 emissions from our vehicles. 

Since FoodCycler™ is a compost alternative that digests food waste aerobically, absolutely ZERO methane gas is emitted during the cycle. And since the processing is done on-site, absolutely ZERO emissions are created by transport.

The emissions generated by the FoodCycler™'s operations are similar to the CO2 produced by backyard compost piles during the natural decomposition process - and in areas with primarily renewable energy, the FoodCycler™ in fact produces fewer CO2 emissions than a backyard compost pile. 

When considering the PM2, methane and CO2 emissions rating of all the possible diversion methods available, the FoodCycler™ is a leading green alternative.

While FoodCycler fully supports diversion programs such as recycling and organics collection, studies have shown that many of these supposedly diverted materials often end up in the landfill. By processing your food waste and using your FoodCycler by-product at home, you can be 100% confident that your diversion efforts were successful.
