How Much Energy Does Lomi Use

Lomi uses a very low amount of electricity, so you won't need to worry about over use! Overall, Lomi uses less than 1kWh on any cycle. Here's a breakdown of electricity usage during each mode:

Does Lomi actually make compost?

The Lomi has three compost modes, each of which takes a different amount of time to break down your organic waste. Eco Express mode (3-5 hours) is meant for “easy” compost scraps like fruits, veggies, other foods, and houseplant and yard waste.

Is Lomi a good product?

Lomi does a great job of containing smell; even when the bucket reeked of old food, there was no leakage as long as the lid was covered. This is also thanks to the activated carbon located in its two filters. (These filters need to be replaced every three to six months, depending on use.)

Is Lomi environmentally friendly?

One of the best things about Lomi is how quickly it can break down organic waste. Because its longest cycle takes less than a full day to complete, you get a steady and unlimited supply of nutrient-rich dirt.

How long does Lomi take to make compost?

Traditional Backyard Composting

*The time ranges for Lomi are dependent on the different modes . For example, the Eco-Express mode only takes 3 - 5 hours whereas the grow mode takes 16 - 20 hours.

Can you put bones in Lomi?

Lomi can break down soft bones, like those from fish or small chicken bones that have been boiled to make broth. These can be added to a Lomi Approved or Eco Express cycle. We do not advise any other type of bone be placed in Lomi on any cycle.

How long does it take Lomi to work?

Lomi allows you to turn food waste into plant-ready nutrients in under 24 hours. Boost your plants while reducing your waste.

How does Lomi recycle plastic?

Lomi is the first home composter that can break down bioplastics. Bioplastics are plastics made out of plant based materials. This means that they can be composted. However, bioplastics notoriously take forever to break down in traditional backyard compost systems.

How long is the Lomi grow cycle?

Lomi is the fastest composter on the market. You can go from dried grass clippings to fresh compost in just a few hours. Approved bioplastics can be broken down in 5–10 hours. A full cycle of Grow Mode takes 12–24 hours, which means you can unbox your Lomi and get fresh compost the same day.

What is Lomi and how does it work?

So, how does the product work? Lomi converts waste into nutrient-rich and non-odorous compost by speeding up the disintegration of food waste into fragmented biomass. The fragmented biomass then provides more surface area for the growth of microbes, accelerating the compost process.

How big is a Lomi?

At only 16 x 13 x 12 inches, Lomi assumes the size of a small appliance (Pela, the company behind the product, likens it to a bread maker), but one that operates at much lower sound frequencies—between 40 and 50db compared to the 90db+ you would hear from a food processor.

Can I put cardboard in Lomi?

Yes in small amounts, but we don't recommend them as they're highly recyclable items, so save your Lomi for non-recyclable things!
