A family goes through a lot of food on a weekly basis, especially if they have small children or teenagers. Daily meal prep produces a lot of food scraps and it’s hard to know what to do with them. A garbage disposal can make meal preparation and cooking a lot easier and convenient. Let’s take a look at how a garbage disposal can help your family.
Peeling potatoes and carrots, dicing onions, slicing mushrooms; all of these tasks leave you with piles of food scraps. Instead of transferring scraps into bowls and then throwing them away, a disposal allows you to do all this prep directly into the sink. This not only makes cooking easier, but cleaning up afterward as well. A disposal can make preparing meals for your family easier.
Doing the Dishes is Easier
Nobody likes doing the dishes, but having a disposal makes cleaning up after meals a little easier. Instead of scraping your plates and dishes into the garbage can, you can place them directly into the sink, meaning less steps in the cleaning process. All the food particles and scraps left over from your dinner plates can be put directly into the disposal.
Reduce Bacteria and Odors
When food scraps sit in a garbage can or even a sink, bacteria can quickly develop, causing odors and germs to flourish. A disposal cuts down on the amount of food waste that is in your containers, thus reducing bacteria and bad smells. It also makes it less likely that you will have odors coming from your sink drains as well.
Installing a disposal in your kitchen will help limit the amount of food waste going into your waste containers. Less waste means less non-biodegradable plastic garbage bags. It also means less work hauling garbage outside or out to the curb.
