Holiday Disposer Quick Tip

When disposing of starch-rich foods, always dispose in small amounts at a time and run with cool water!

Keep disposer and water running for 30 to 60 seconds after the waste matter has cleared your drain. The waste still has a distance to go. Cold water keeps the motor, bearings and shredder assembly from overheating. It also lets the waste go down easier because the water is pushing it down.
