How does a food disposer work?
Your food scraps are fed into the disposer together with water from your cold kitchen tap. The food waste is simply and quickly ground into fine particles using no knives or blades!
Your food waste is then flushed through the waste disposer and into your normal waste system, as if it never existed! The Insinkerator waste disposer is designed to cope with most types of food waste, including small bones, meat, fish, vegetable and fruit peels, eggshells, nuts and more.
Is a disposer safe?
Insinkerator waste disposers are built to meet rigorous standards on electrical and appliances. Contrary to popular belief, they no longer have blades as part of their design!
Do food waste disposers require any maintenance?
Insinkerator waste disposers are designed to be maintenance-free. Regular usage is the best way to keep your waste disposer in good condition. Letting a moderate stream of cold water flush down the system following each use will keep your disposer clean.
What are the differences between standard and premium disposers?
Standard waste disposers operate with some noise but newer, premium models are much quieter. Some to the point where all you hear is the sound of water running! Advanced sound reducing features are included in premium disposers, similar to quiet dishwashers.
Standard disposers offer one grind stage whereas newer premium models offer advanced, multi-stage grinding systems. You can enable your disposer to grind a wider variety of foods more efficiently.
