Sepura or Countertop Compost?

Here’s a simple overview to compare the two.

Countertop Compost
Effort required All water and food scraps sent down your sink separated automatically. Move gross sink sludge to your bin while smelling last week’s dinner.
Odors Odors eliminated by Sepura's carbon filter and controlled air intakes. Odors are bearable at best and disgusting at worst.
Relationship health Fewer "discussions" due to less frequent emptying. Countless arguments about whose turn it is to take out the compost.
Emptying frequency Empty every 2-4 weeks enjoying peace of mind. Empty weekly to avoid the putrid odors being emitted.

What customers are saying

Kids are now cleaning!

It makes composting (almost) fun. Our kids have loved putting things down the drain and then opening the bin to make sure that the items made it through-- scraping their plates has become a post-dinner time game for them!! Would have paid double just for that alone, lol.

Way more countertop space and way less mess

Composting without clutter is pure joy. I've been able to take my compost bin off my counter which has been awesome. Sepura does its job and is way better at collecting solids than I've ever been. It's also great because we're on septic, so we're loving how we're able to put everything down the drain without any worry. Big fan so far.

Totally worth it.

Bought this recently and my husband wasn't too convinced. A couple weeks in and I think he loves it more than I do. No more smelly compost to deal with. No more disgusting sink strainer to empty out. No fruit flies. It makes composting a lot more pleasant to deal with.
