The material looks solid and durable. No smelly or liquid leaks
- Packaging: good nothing to say, the product is well protected.
- Functionality and performance: overall looks like its working, however I had it only for a week. It could be useful to have some way to know if the “bokashi tea” is ready for collection.
- Reliability and durability: The material looks solid and durable. No smelly or liquid leaks. However, I am not sure if the lid will close that well as time goes. I haven’t tried to drop it from the bench, but I think it would survive.
- Design and aesthetics: The bin looks good (even if I didn...

Questions & Answers
I bought two maze 12L Bokashi Indoor Composters from Bunnings in July 2020 and had problem with the seal not being air tight and flies managed to get in and breed. As a result, I couldn't do any compost since then.
Provided it is a fundamental product quality issue, can I get a refund for the products or you can offer any alternate solutions?
Hi Winnie, sorry to hear about this. You can certainly get a refund for it or you can try our new 14L version or the 18L. I will send you an email as well to confirm.
Hi i have an 18 litre bokashi system. The lid seals great. But even though there is plenty of liquid nothing drains out the tap. This liquid then causes a really bad smell. Not sure if something is somehow blocking tap but has happened in the first and second bucket
Hi, can i ask how you know that there is a lot of liquid? I assume the strainer is still at the bottom of the bucket? Please feel free to email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Ronen
Yes the strainer is at the bottom. I know there is a lot of liquid because when I emptied it into my tumbling composter I had to manually drain the liquid first (holding the compost in and tipping the bucket upside down.) When I emptied the compost and inspected the tap and it did not appear blocked??
did you try and test the tap with water to see if it works? It sounds very usual. Happy to send you a new tap if you think it will help.
Hi, I recently returned my dual Bokashi bins to Bunnings as the lids were not sealing. After reading the reviews it sounds like there is a gasket in the lid to ensure an airtight seal?
Could you please confirm this as I am keen to compost as much waste as possible and these systems seem ideal.
Hi Kathy, yes there is a rubber gasket in the lid that should make it air tight. In the last production the gasket was a bit different so this caused some issues with some bins not being airtight. Our 18L Indoor Composter has a different sealing lid and we have not had any issues with that version.
Thanks for your response. I will see if they are available online again to repurchase the two bin pack.
If it doesnt come with a seal will you be able to assist?
Hi Kathy, i suggest waiting a couple of weeks as then we will have a new seal which should be more reliable. Please email me at email@example.com in a couple of weeks and i will confirm if we have it.
