How it works

Many people are under the impression that food waste disposers utilise spinning blades to chop and break down food waste. In fact, nothing could be further than the truth. InSinkErator® food waste disposer units use no blades whatsoever. Instead, impellers mounted on a spinning plate use centrifugal power to force food waste particles against a grind ring. That ring breaks down the food waste into very fine particles – virtually liquefying them.

Running water from the tap then flushes the particles through the grind ring out of the disposer and into your wastewater pipe. From there it flows to the wastewater treatment plant or your septic system.

All this means that disposers are an environmentally responsible alternative to conventional disposal methods such as landfill. Not only does this help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but it means that food waste can be processed and used for renewable energy.

Food Waste Disposers

The Practical Choice for Families of all Sizes

Safe and easy to use

Both M Series and Evolution series disposers have been designed with safety in mind. The horror stories you have seen on TV are fictional. There are no blades or knives in a disposer, so you can rest assured that your limbs are perfectly safe.

As well as being safe, there are three simple steps to using an InSinkErator disposals. Firstly, turn the cold water tap on. This will help solidify food waste, allowing it to be easily flushed through your plumbing.

Then press the Air Switch button to activate the disposer and slowly add food scraps without overloading (bear in mind that the bigger the grind chamber of your disposer, the more food it can handle at once). Listen out for the grinding to stop and turn off your disposer whilst letting the cold water run for another 10 seconds.
