Thanks for educating me, Barbara! Batch will be our next choice when replacement is needed. Though we find we rarely use our disposal now that we compost most food waste.

Barbara,

We have ours in the sink.  As far as I know it doesn't work until you turn the switch on.  So I am clueless.

I didn't know about the second type you mentioned. I'll have to look into getting that type. When I was a kid my dad saved my hand in the nick of time. My sister and I were both doing dishes. She didn't know any better and went to turn on the disposal when I had my hand down in it. Thankfully my dad was right there and saw everything that was going on. 

Because of that incident disposals still kind of scare me.

I only  knew of the one "gobbler" disposal type. On new renters or owners, a crash course is recommended on what to put in there & how to unstuck them

Type two has many benefits. One being the elimination of garbage regurgitation when the switch is toggled.

This advance is garbage technology reminds me of those applied to swimming pool pumps and the vacuum interrupt capability.

Would/Should a real estate agent demonstrate such garbage disposal features during a home showing?
