Reasons to love the daily grind with InSinkErator
Like them or loathe them, food caddies have become as much a feature of urban living as potholes and foxes. But if you’re not lucky enough to live in an area where these are a feature of your clear-up routine, and food waste is mixed in with your everyday household refuse, your sprout avoidance could be a huge issue.
Food scraps disposed of in regular rubbish make their way to landfill sites, contributing to harmful gasses which, in turn, promote the greenhouse effect. The good news is there is a different way – and it comes in the form of InSinkErator’s waste disposal units.
Traditionally, the UK’s exposure to these devices has been via countless films, with furious blades snaring ties or, more gorily, human anatomy, while they slash and snarl. InSinkErator’s products put an end to this cinematic trope, using blade and knife-less technology to grind your excess fodder – including chicken bones – into minute particles, small enough to be disposed of via your waste water pipe.
These US-made, simple to install units cater for all family types, from singletons to large broods, and some models even relieve your caddy of banana peel and avocado skins. The only things it can’t tackle are fats and oil (of course, you’d never put these down the drain anyway…), cutlery or glass.
FOOT ON THE GAS
Once your food waste is hygienically disposed of in your sink (no more decomposing, stinky, surface top horrors!), the particles can then be processed as fertiliser or biogas, which certainly beats ‘greenhouse gas’.
Quiet, compact and easy to clean (shove some lemon in every so often for a quick freshen up), there is an InSinkErator to suit every lifestyle. And it might also allow you to cunningly outfox night-time bin scavengers, too.
