Garbage disposal units (akna garburators) are a necessity to keep your kitchen clean and free from bacteria and pests. When it comes to garbage disposal units, there are two dominant models in the market, continuous feed and batch feed. Each has its own merits and demerits. Let’s find out what they are.
This is the costlier model. It grinds down waste in batches.
• Safe to use. Only operates when the cover over the feed opening is in place.
• Best for households with little to moderate amounts of waste.
• Less chances of accidentally grinding something that is not designed to be processed by the unit such as pieces of cutlery.
• For large amount of waste, it might take a lot of time to dispose. Such scenarios can easily arise during festive seasons when you are entertaining guests.
• Due to the delay in disposing off the waste, the waste may rot and attract unwanted bacteria and pests.
As the name suggests, these models are ready to grind from the moment they are turned on. A cheaper and popular alternative, a continuous feed model is the best garburator for houses where the amount of waste in the kitchen is on the higher side.
• Takes care of the waste fast and swift. You can keep dropping waste into the disposal unit as it is always grinding.
• If your house generates a lot of waste in the kitchen, you are better off with a continuous feed model.
• They are cheap so it is easier to find a model that suits your pocket.
• Since the feed opening of continuous models is open, there are chances of injuries if you are not careful.
• You can accidentally put in items that are not meant to be in there and by the time you switch off the device, a lot of damage might have been done.
The market is teeming with many brands of models so choose wisely and get rid of those annoying wastes for good.
