Continuous feed Vs Batch Feed Garburators
Continuous feed is the most common type of disposal and is generally easier to use. These disposals are usually turned on by a wall mounted switch. Batch feed disposals require you to fit a stopper lid over the opening of the garburator to activate the unit. This makes it very difficult to accidentally trigger the garburator while your hands or fingers are near the device.
Motor size and Horsepower
The motor size and horsepower rating of the disposal will determine what kind of food waste it can safely dispose of. Garbage disposals can be found with horsepower ratings from 1/3 all the way to 1hp. The higher the horsepower rating, the less likelihood of the disposal jamming on debris, resulting in safter operation for the user.
From time to time, your garburator will jam. Auto-reverse is an anti-jamming feature built into high-end garburators. When the disposal senses something is stuck in its grinding chamber, it will automatically reverse its rotation to help un-jam itself and prevent damage to the unit.
