A Guide to Buying a Garbage Disposal
A garbage disposal is the kitchen’s unsung hero. Effortlessly chomping up organic waste, it hardly garners a second thought (or much maintenance). What’s more, disposals help the environment by preventing bags of organic waste from being dumped into landfills. Whether you are ready to invest in your first garbage disposal or replacing one that has devoured its last broccoli stem, it’s important to invest in a quality disposal that won’t clog frequently or need constant repair. Today’s modern disposals are designed to last 8 to 15 years. Here’s what to consider before buying.
Horsepower. The standard garbage disposal will have 3/4 horsepower. Super strong models that can chop up even the toughest vegetable husks can have as much as 1 horsepower. Compact models, which save on under-the-sink space, are available, but don’t opt for one below 1/2 horsepower. It will likely get stuck regularly and need to be replaced in just a few years.
Continuous feed or batch feed. Typical continuous feed garbage disposals are turned on by a switch located near the kitchen sink. Batch-feed models work by inserting a stopper or rod-like key into the drain. Both styles equally grind up the food, but households with young children may prefer the batch feed as a way to prevent them from accidentally hitting the disposal switch.
Noise. Garbage disposals are like hungry monsters, they’re not very quiet. And under stainless steel sinks, they can be even louder if not insulated well. However, as a rule, the fatter the disposal, the quieter it runs. So opt for the fattest disposal that will fit properly under your sink. Or consider a model that includes an insulated outer shell or a sound baffle, which will reduce vibration and noise.
Today’s disposals offer an array of special features to make the appliance even more effective and durable. Anti-jamming or auto-reverse models reduce the likelihood the disposal will get stuck by either having blades that regularly reverse direction or reverse as soon as a jam occurs. All stainless-steel parts, including grinding chamber, blades, impeller and sink flange, are less likely to corrode from the acid released by ground up food. Sink stoppers are required to operate batch-feed disposals, but they help prevent unwanted materials like forks and scrubber sponges from falling into continuous feed disposals too. Dishwasher connector features allow you to hook up the disposal to the dishwasher, so any large pieces of food that washes off your dishes will be shuttled to the disposal and chopped up.
