Food waste disposers are fast, economical and very, very practical. Mounted discreetly beneath your sink, these sink waste disposal units are quiet in operation, they’re one of the most useful of kitchen appliances – soon becoming an indispensable part of your kitchen routine.
Practical to install
All kitchens could benefit from a food waste disposer today, since little work is required to fit these compact and unobtrusive units. InSinkErator food waste disposers fit all standard plumbing and require a power source nearby.
These days everyone tries to claim green credentials, but a food waste disposer really does make a difference. About 20% of a household’s waste is food, and most of it ends up (via the bin) in landfill – where it contributes to methane and other greenhouse gas emissions. In stark contrast, food waste that has passed through a disposer can be recycled by Waste Water Treatment Plants to form ‘soil conditioner’, a form of fertiliser, or biogas.

What is a food waste disposer?
A food waste disposer is a simple and convenient kitchen appliance that grinds food waste into fine particles which automatically flush away down the sink drain. Mounted discreetly beneath your sink, the food waste disposer connects directly into the normal waste system. You simply turn on the cold tap, feed in the food waste, and turn on; within seconds the food waste is ground down and gone.
For many years, food waste disposers have been essential appliances in US kitchens and now homeowners in SA are also discovering how useful they can be. InSinkErator’s food waste disposers are quiet, safe and extremely reliable.
How does a disposer work?
Food waste disposers are mounted beneath the plug hole and connected directly into the normal sink drain.
Simply wash food waste into the food waste disposer, and turn on the cold tap. At the touch of a button, food waste is then ground into fine particles which flush away in the flow of water. They’re powerful enough to grind almost all types of food waste.
A food waste disposer never needs emptying, and it’s easy to keep clean and smelling fresh: simply slice up and dispose of a lemon!
Is a disposer safe?
As the leading manufacturer of food waste disposers for over sixty years, InSinkErator’s safety record is unrivalled. All our food waste disposers meet rigorous electrical and mechanical safety standards.
Food waste disposers contain no blades or sharp objects: they work by grinding the waste between abrasive surfaces. If, for any reason, the motor jams, then it automatically shuts down, allowing you to safely remove any foreign objects before resetting and restarting.
How long does it take to grind food waste?
It usually only takes a few seconds to dispose of food waste, although more substantial items like small bones may take a little longer. Feed the food waste in gradually until it’s all been ground into small particles (you’ll hear the sound of the appliance changing when it’s done). Then simply flush the system through with cold water – for about 15 seconds – and switch off.
Minimal time, effort and water is required.
What will a food waste disposer grind?
Food waste disposers can handle virtually all types of food waste, up to and including small meat bones. Meat itself, bones from poultry or fish, egg shells, fruit and most vegetables are all dealt with effortlessly. Food that is particularly stringy or fibrous (such as corn husks or artichokes) should be avoided, to prevent clogging.
