How long does it take to grind food waste in my insinkerator or garbage disposal unit?

Depending on which model insinkerator or emerson garbage disposal unit or garbage gobbler you have, it can take anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes depending on what type of food waste you are trying to get rid off. The sound of the motor in the disposer will change when there is no more food in the grind chamber. After all food waste is ground, turn off the disposer and let the water keep running for about 15 seconds to flush out the grind chamber and the plumbing waste pipe connecting to the u bend or trap under the sink. Every so often I like to put a couple of trays of ice cubes down the machine which seems to make the motor sound quieter. If you are having this or other problems with your insinkerator contact us.
