I must admit that I didn't see BrummieBen's comments as sarcasm and I'll throw my hat into the ring here. I don't have a compost heap at the moment due to ongoing re-organisation of the garden, but when I did, I just found the bags a pain as they just sort of sat there!
I did try to be cheap for a while and use the indoor bin naked (the bin, not me! As there is a bigger one for outside that you transfer it into) but I found that far from giving it a bit of a rince, I was fighing a rising tide of fungus! So I am back to using the bags. When I am home composting again then I shall just pop the peelings et al out on a daily basis. Cooked food will continue to go in the bags for recycling.
