Ergonomic Pressure Plate - Improves Fermenting Efficiency!
Bokashicycle engineering recognized the need for a properly fitting pressure plate to exclude trapped oxygen. Oxygen is trapped in food waste and pressing down with a plate to exclude the trapped oxygen before closing the fermenter results in faster microbial activation.
Pressure plates are used in Bokashi fermenting systems to rapidly expel trapped oxygen. They are also useful in expelling bokashi tea from the fermented end product which can then be used as a nutrient and microbially rich supplement for house plants, lawns and gardens.
Ergonomically injected molded plate comfortably fits the hand with a concave contour that is useful in compressing and directing fermented contents to the bottom of the fermenter as material is processed. With oxygen exclusion, the fermenting process is rapid and efficient.
