We all know how what a hassle food scraps and food garbage can be. Not only can it cause a mess during daily meal cleanup, it can also be a smelly process to rid your household of these leftover bits of food. Regardless of where you keep your garbage can, rotting food scraps can cause bad odors in your home or garage that can be a big pain to get rid of. Bagged garbage can also attract animals and insects if those bags are full of old food and can potentially even create unsanitary conditions in your home. Fortunately, there is a great way to deal with the problem of food garbage after your meals and snacks – food disposers. More good news? These disposers have gotten a lot more effective in recent years.
Food disposers also have a very positive impact on the effectiveness of your kitchen pipes and plumbing system. By properly grinding up and disposing of your food with a food disposer, you’ll not only avoid terrible rotting smells in these pipes, you’ll also help keep those pipes clean and clear. Especially around this big cooking and baking time as we approach the holiday season, it’s extremely important to keep this plumbing working effectively.
New models from a leading disposer brand, InSinkErator, recently hit the market and are blowing away the performance of the old competition. Anything from chicken bones to coffee grinds can be handled effectively with these new models within the InSinkErator Evolution® series.
The Evolution Excel model takes performance of food disposers to a new level, featuring SoundSeal Plus™ technology, which delivers ultra-quiet performance. Gone are the days when conversations have to stop when the disposer switch is flipped on because of the extremely loud noise. The InSinkErator Multigrind Plus™ technology ensures food is sheared, shredded and grinded into fine bits before washing through your pipes. This makes plumbing clogs and backups caused by your food very rare, and in most cases completely eliminates their possibility when these machines are used properly and effectively. You can watch the video at the bottom of this post to see the Evolution Excel in action.
InSinkErator provides a handy guide to let consumers of their products know about proper use and food products for their disposer models. This chart gives common tips, such as avoiding grinding a great deal of dense food at one time and instead gradually feeding the disposer. It’s also good to follow proper standard disposer cleaning techniques to ensure your disposer works perfectly for many years to come.
Aside from being a great way to take care of those common food messes, disposers can also provide a positive environmental impact. Grinding and disposing of food with a food disposer provides an alternative to transporting food waste to landfills, reducing carbon gas emissions both during the transport and overall landfill management process. Many areas also have wastewater treatment plants, where food waste particles from these disposers can be recycled to produce renewable power sources for the treatment plant or used as fertilizers. Disposers also only account for about 1% or less of a household’s total water consumption and have an average electric operating cost of less than 50 cents per year.
