Foodcycler with bucket and filters on-grey


Meet the FoodCycler

Your Vitamix blender helps you get the most out of your fruits and veggies every day. But what about after you make your smoothie, serve your salsa, or eat your salad?

That’s where FoodCycler comes in.

Fruit cores, vegetable peels, dairy, chicken bones, and more—the FoodCycler transforms food scraps into fertilizer and reduces your family’s food waste. From morning to night, Vitamix and FoodCycler make it easy to take care of yourself (and the planet).

How Does It Work?

Simply toss your food scraps into the bucket, press the button, and relax. The FoodCycler breaks down food waste into a tenth of its original volume and creates a nutrient-rich fertilizer you can add to your soil. And the best part? The carbon filtration system eliminates odors, making it perfect for indoor use.

As Easy as 1,2,3

Discover why FoodCycler is an effective alternative to traditional composting.

Just fill up the bucket with food scraps, place it in the FoodCycler, and press the button. In less time than it takes to defrost a chicken, you can transform food waste into fertilizer.

The unique activated carbon filtration system is designed to eliminate odors and methane emissions during cycling, so you can run the FoodCycler inside without worrying about offensive smells.

Using the FoodCycler

Easy To Clean

Your Vitamix blender is super easy to clean. The FoodCycler is just as simple—the empty bucket can go right in your dishwasher! It doesn’t get much easier than that.


The FoodCycler is a compact counter-top food recycler which transforms food waste to fertilizer within hours. Odorless and quiet, the unit comes with a removable waste bucket for easy loading, and an intuitive carbon filtration system (1st set of filters already installed!)

Reduce Food Waste

The FoodCycler pulverizes and aerates nearly all types of food waste, breaking them down to a tenth of their original volume. Use the by-product as fertilizer to thoroughly mix into your soil.

Fits Almost Anywhere

The FoodCycler is similar in size to a bread machine. It should fit almost anywhere you have about one cubic foot of space with a power outlet. Keep the bucket in the kitchen, under the sink, or by the trash can, and store the FoodCycler in the garage, in a closet, or on the counter.

Don’t Wait

Traditional composting can take weeks, if not months, to transform food waste into garden-ready fertilizer. Because of the FoodCycler’s intense aeration, heating and pulverization, this process is sped up and completed within 3 to 8 hours.

Perfect for Indoor Use

Outdoor composting systems require a minimum temperature to break down organics, making it difficult in colder months. Since the FoodCycler is odorless, you can run it indoors and reduce food waste year round, no matter the outside temperature.
