How to Operate Food Wste Disposer

Kintchen Warehouse

The motor in a food waste disposer is measured in horsepower, so it should be enough to handle anything , right ? Well , not quite . Here you need to know to banish jams and floods, keep the machine in tiptop condition.

Food Only , Please

Food scraps are the only thing you should sent down the disposer. Keep other materials out , or your sink casuing damage -no paper, wood, glass and plastic.

Water is Your Friend

To keep everything running smoothly, always use plenty of cold water. Run the tap before, during 10-15 seconds after operating disposer. Why cold ? It help congeal any grease and fats so they don't bulid up in pipes. Never run the disposer dry.

Beware Tough, Stringy Food

You know those scraps that are so fibrous that you can't throght them ? The tough ends of celery, the bottoms of asparagus , or those rubbery, stringly banana peels ? Your disposer has a hard time with them too. Toss them on the compost pile instead.

Nothing too Hard ,Either

Eggsheels and coffee grounds, in small amounts, are ok (the latter can even help freshen the drain's aroma). But unless you have plumber on retainer, don't send bones, nuts, seeds or hard fruit pits down the chute.

Don't Overload It

The disposer works best on small bits of scraps at a time - don't make a huge pile and then force it down all at once. Similarly , the odd potato peel is fine , but aviod sending large piles of peels down the disposer - they can clog the drain and even wrap around the blades.

Keep it Fresh

When you're done for the night, run the disposer and toss down lemon halves. The astringent juices and naturally antimicrobial oils will help counter odors. And throw in a few ice cubes to help knock debris buildup off the blades' edges.

Keep Your Hands to Yourself

Do we have to say it? Never reach into the food waste disposer. Yes, even if it's turn off. (The very thing that clogging the action can suddenly dislodge and release the blades - ouch). If you need to retrieve something , cut the power and try tongs, needles-nose pliers or even chopsticks to dislodge it - just never your digits , unless you're into subtraction.
