Why do people use garbage disposals? They just spit wepons at you! If there are any other appliances I should ban from this earthy realm please let me know. There's work to be done.

I've never seen a garbage disposal, but I am terrified of them because of the movie Small Soldiers.

The sun is the only appliance you need!

Clothes dryers? Microwaves? Garbage disposals? Just set those suckers out in the sun and wait for it to do its magic!

When I moved to Florida years ago the sink had a light switch near it so I thought it was for the lights but nope it was for the spinning wheel of screaming death that lives in the sink.

Until that point in my life I thought garbage disposals were just a fancy way to say trash can, I didn't know people actually tossed food stuff trash into their sink and it still baffles me to this day.

I'm going to blame argononic structures for it. That seems like as fair a deal as any.

I have literally never encountered one of these beasts and I am not convinced they are real because the idea seems so bafflingly pointlessly overkill I just refuse to accept its a normal thing for some folk.

garbage disposals are useful for washing plates that still have food stuck to them and you dont want it clogging up the drain, but you also dont want to go to the trouble of scraping it off and into the trash can.

I don't mind garbage disposals too much, but it's only really useful if you have an annoying 'roommate' who doesn't know how to get rid of his foodwaste properly and puts a half-full plate into the sink, and also aren't on a septic tank.

Re: Garbage Disposals:

I'm just used to having the little mesh thing in the sink and knocking it against the wall of the trash can after doing dishes. I think the purpose is so you don't let food smell in your trash can, though, instead it just gets chopped up in tiny pieces and goes through the plumbing.

I do it voluntarily because I hate myself.

My folks have one and it’s not really a massive timesaver since we don’t put anything large down there, but also when you got like various onion scraps and other stuff already in the sink, it’s like aw heck just wash it down instead of picking it up out of there.

But they also wash dishes pretty thoroughly before putting it in the dishwasher, which blows my mind. It’s not like they enjoy doing it.

Sometimes you can feed lemon or orange rinds into the garbage disposal and everything smells good.

So do my parents. It's the ancient paradox of dishwashers. Sometimes I catch myself thoroughly scrubbing a plate to put in their dishwasher, but with my fingers and running water, not soap, to convince myself I'm not actually washing it, even if I'm putting in the same amount of effort.

if it makes you feel better, the dishwasher sterilises things in a way its pretty hard to do by hand because of the water pressure and temperature in there. Theres nothing worse than opening a clean dishwasher to stuff still covered in food scraps, too.

That is more or less the saving grace. I don’t like to upset the EPA but HHS doesn’t seem to have a whole lot of victories lately. Crying Eagle

Man, SPeaking of Garbage Disposals, I remember reading a short story when I was younger about a Privileged Kid who, For Reasons Had to go Help out An Old Poor Lady or somethin' and he finds out she doesn't have a Garbage Disposal and it weirds him out and Like, the end is him sort of refusing to Believe that The Poor Staving Children Down In Africa(which I Am Fairly Sure Was a Recurring Theme and might have been the imputus as to why He was helpin' out the Old Poor Lady, Vis Something Something Food Waste Something Punishment SOmething Something? Idk It was years ago I read this) Weren't Using Dishwashers and Garbage Disposals but sorta framed in a way that made it seem ridiculos and vaguely like the kid himself knew it was kinda ridiculous
