 How does it work?

LykoClean starts processing your food waste as soon as you press the power button after the lid has been closed. During the cycle, intelligent sensors will constantly monitor humidity, temperature and other key metrics, and make timely adjustments. The fan provides a continuous supply of oxygen and cools the output after drying and grinding.

What can LykoClean process?

 From simple leftover salads to sophisticated party dinners, LykoClean can do it all.

  • Fruits and veggies
  • Meat, fish, and shrimp
  • Chicken and fish bones
  • Coffee grounds filters and tea bags
  • Dairy products

For a complete list of food waste that LykoClean can recycle, please consult your instruction manual. If you still have more questions, please contact us 24/7 by emailing

How do you use it?

Simply insert the activated charcoal filter as instructed after removing all protective films, and place your food waste inside the compost bin. Close the lid and press the “Power” indicator. Wait for 2-8 hours for the whole process to complete.

Does LycoClean have any warranty?

To provide our customer with the best possible experience, we have a 1-year limited warranty on our Smart Kitchen Composter.

 Does LykoClean really produce compost?

LykoClean Smart Kitchen Composter will produce a fine, dry, brown, odorless pre-compost in 2-8 hours. Pre-compost is very similar to compost, with the main difference being that the heating and drying process kills bacteria that may be present in traditional compost. However, pre-compost can still be used to top-dress plants as fertilizers.

Can I add pet waste?

No. You should follow your local municipality requirements or recommendations.

How much food waste can I put in?

Although there is no minimum amount with our 2.5L compost bin, you cannot fill the compost bin past the max fill line indicator. The smaller the amount of waste, the faster the cycle will complete. Overfilling the compost bin may result in inconsistent and incomplete finished product, and may even cause damage to LykoClean.

How long does it take for a cycle to complete?

A cycle may take anywhere from 2-8 hours, depending on the amount and type of food waste. The composter will automatically enter Storage Mode once the cycle is complete so you do not have to remove the finished pre-compost as soon as you can.

How often should I replace the filter?

The activated charcoal filter can last from 1-3 months, depending on usage. For best results, replace every month, or as needed (whenever you start to notice odors coming from the composter).

Will LykoClean remind me when it’s time to change the filter?

No. The activated charcoal filter DOES NOT have sensors to monitor the lifecycle of the filter. Replace every 1-3 months, or when you start to notice odors.

How do I clean it?

To clean the exterior, gently wipe down exterior surfaces with a soft damp cloth. Remove excess moisture before use. To remove stubborn grime, add a small amount of dish soap to the cloth and dry. DO NOT immerse your unit in water or liquids. Discard excess moisture in the drip tray. 

To clean the compost bin, remove all particles and blockages after removing the bin from the composter. Wash the bin with warm water and a small amount of dish soap. Completely air dry before replacing it into the composter.
