This food waste disposer is a must-have appliance for the modern kitchen
It’s no secret that Australians love to cook. The modern kitchen takes centre stage when entertaining family and friends. Yet the more we cook, the more food scraps and waste we produce — not to mention the accompanying nasty food smells. Why keep food scraps rotting in a bin under the sink when there is an alternative?
An InSinkErator food waste disposer is a must-have appliance for the modern kitchen. Rather than scraping and pouring messy food waste into a kitchen pedal bin, simply turn on the cold water tap, switch on the system and empty the food waste into the sink. –
With just about any type of food waste able to go down the drain, handling of food scraps is minimised and time spent preparing and cleaning up after meals is significantly reduced.
Extremely quiet and efficient, using less than one per cent of the total household water consumption, the disposer grinds food without the use of blades in just seconds. After being ground, food waste is sent via the sewerage system to a waste water treatment plant.
These are designed to treat organic waste — in contrast to landfill sites, which are the least-desirable way to dispose of organic waste. Properly equipped facilities allow food waste to be recycled, and the methane gas generated can be converted into usable energy to power homes and businesses.
