Frequently Asked Questions

What is a food waste disposer?

A food waste disposer is a small electrical appliance, containing a grinding mechanism, that is fitted beneath the wastewater outlet in your sink. Food waste is fed down the outlet and immediately into the disposer, which grinds it into find particles that can easily flow through your plumbing.

Its primary purpose is to aid you in getting rid of food waste, as an alternative to composting (which can be difficult in homes without the necessary space) or simply throwing waste into bins (which go to landfills, or which can cause a stink around your home).

Do I need a special sink to install a food waste disposer?

Not at all. Disposers are designed to attach to the average kitchen sink. Your main consideration should be whether you have enough space beneath your sink to fit the disposer. Please check each disposer's page for its specifications.

How do I install a food waste disposer?

Installing a food waste disposer is a simple and non-destructive process. We recommend you employ a plumber or handyperson to ensure the job is done safely.

Do disposers require any servicing or maintenance?

No, unless something significant goes wrong.

Disposers are straightforward appliances, and our range features innovative features to prevent clogging or breakdowns. These features include jam-detection circuits that temporarily increase power to overcome tough waste, and reverse grinding action, to unclog and protect your disposer from damage.

Do I have to empty my disposer? Where does the food waste go?

Disposers do not store food waste. As you feed waste into your disposer, you should let cool water run from your tap. The flowing water will help push the waste through the grinding mechanism.

The particulate waste then flows through your plumbing and into the sewage.

What can't I put in a food waste disposer?

While our disposers are extraordinarily powerful and come equipped with built-in features explicitly designed to overcome jams and clogs, you should still be vigilant about what you put into your disposer.

The following is a list of things we recommend you avoid putting into your disposer, either because they may damage or clog the mechanism, or more generally because they may clog your plumbing entirely.

  • Bones
  • Seafood shells
  • Fibrous fruit and vegetable waste (banana peels, asparagus, onions skins)
  • Pasta
  • Rise
  • Nuts
  • Starchy waste (potato skins)
  • Grease
  • Oil
