Garbage disposals are a wonderful kitchen convenience. Taking care of your garbage disposal is essential to avoid malfunctions and extend service life.

  • DO run water down the drain while operating the garbage disposal to help move those ground-up food scraps through the pipes.
  • DON’T feed any hard objects such as corn cobs, bones, or fruit pits into the garbage disposal even if the manufacturer claims the appliance can handle it.
  • DO run a few ice cubes through the garbage disposal to clean the blades and dislodge bits of food that can get stuck in the components.
  • DON’T stick your hand down next to the blades to clean them.
  • DO keep a drain guard over the garbage disposal until you’re prepared to run it to prevent hard objects such as silverware from accidentally falling in.
