The Two Main Types of Garbage Disposals
These devices are one of the handiest kitchen appliances you can own. You don’t have to scrape off every last bit of food from your dishes, and you don’t have to worry about food waste clogging up your kitchen drain. While garbage disposals are simple appliances, there are two main types to be aware of before you buy. Let’s take a look.
- Continuous Feed: Continuous feed disposals are the most common in kitchens because they’re easy to use. These disposals feature an ‘open mouth,’ and you turn them on and off via a switch on the wall.
- Batch Feed: With a batch feed disposal, you must put a stopper into the ‘mouth’ to turn the unit on; this is a safety feature designed to prevent people from turning on the unit when their hand is in it and to prevent accidentally grinding up a spoon if it falls in.
If you’re considering adding a garbage disposal to your kitchen, call the experts at Plumb Perfect Plumbing and ask which system is right for you.
