The Model 17 operates only when the drain cover is inserted. No wall switch is required, so installation is quick and easy.
Our most powerful food waste disposers are the right choice when replacing an existing unit or designing a brand-new kitchen. You can choose between three continuous-feed models, a batch-feed model, and our exclusive Septic Disposer for homes with septic systems.
With an In-Sink-Erator food waste disposer in your kitchen, chicken bones, fruit rinds, coffee grounds and more can go right in the sink -- where they're virtually liquefied to safely flow into your sewage system or septic tank. You'll enjoy a cleaner food preparation area, and less bagged garbage cluttering your home.
What's more, if you've never owned a food waste disposer, you're in for a pleasant surprise. In-Sink-Erator disposers are economical to operate: in fact, they're among the least expensive installed kitchen appliances.
