What is a Disposer?

A food waste disposer is a modern kitchen appliance that offers a convenient way to dispose of food waste in your home. It is installed neatly under the kitchen sink and takes finely ground food waste through the plumbing system to the same place toilet waste is treated.

With an InSinkErator Food waste disposer in your kitchen, just about any kind of food waste can go right down the drain thus minimising the handling of food scraps and reducing the time spent preparing and cleaning up after meals. It is easy and safe to use as it grinds food without the use of knives or blades and is now quieter than ever.

At the touch of a button, food waste is dealt with hygienically and instantly - rather than leaving it in a bin to encourage smells, bacteria and insects, particularly during hot Australian summers. Finally you can say goodbye to the odorous kitchen bin. An InSinkErator food waste processor is unobtrusive, compact in design, and can be fitted to most sinks easily and discreetly. All that’s needed is standard plumbing and a power source nearby!

How A Disposer Works

Simply turn on your cold tap, then the food waste disposer, put the food scraps into your sink and feed them into the InSinkErator flange that replaces your normal plughole. The food waste is then ground into tiny particles by an internal grind ring, with NO blades involved. The food waste is virtually liquefied, then flushed out of the disposer to safely flow into your sewage system, not your storm water system. 

InSinkErator disposers are designed to cope with most types of food waste, including small bones, meat, fish, peelings, eggshells and much, much more.

Cold water should always be running while a disposer is in operation and it should remain on for approximately 15 seconds after the disposer has finished grinding. The average daily water usage is equivalent to one toilet flush. 

Why Install A Disposer?
