The Joraform Compost Tumbler For Faster Home Composting
New updated Version with Improved Insulation now in stock
The Jora rotary composter is also known by its technical name JK270, or more affectionately as the 'Big Pig'. We can't believe how quick and efficient this composter is. It composts so fast you struggle to keep it full.
The JK270 takes up very little room and fits easily in a small garden.
No strong smells and no rodent problems: you can even add cooked meat and fish waste!
There is no assembly required as we take care of that for you.
This unique digester is a home composting system that will recycle household food waste and garden waste of up to 15kg per week. The "Big Pig" is like a large mechanical stomach that literally digests the organic matter you feed it. A fully insulated composter that bolts on to the side of your house, it’s clean, self-contained, and it turns food waste into rich compost faster than the average household can fill it.
The Big Pig is so well insulated that the internal temperature reaches around 75 degrees centigrade. At that kind of temperature, the micro-organisms work so fast that you can almost see the food breaking down before your eyes!
Composting occurs at temperature intervals of +2 to +78C. Different micro-organisms work at different temperature intervals. Higher temperatures give a higher degree of hygienic composting, and are therefore more favourable. With continued addition of waste, the temperature will rise to 65-75C. You don't have to buy a thermometer, as you will see the steam rising from the contents. In fact, it can get too hot to bury your hand in it - should you wish to do so!
* With equal moisture distribution and oxygen configuration in the Little Pig unit.
Two Compartments for Maximum Results
The digester is divided into two compartments. When the first compartment is full (approx. 6 weeks) it is covered with a metal plate (provided). When the second compartment is full the first can be emptied of its’ finished compost.
