What is InSinkErator

InSinkErator is a product known as the Food Waste Disposer which is revolutionising food waste disposal in household kitchens. Garbage disposal has never been made so easy than with this ingenious device that liquefies food waste down the kitchen sink and passes it through the sewage network using water. Avoid having a smelly bin with food waste sitting around the kitchen for days attracting pests in an unhygienic manner. InSinkErator has been carefully designed to comply with sewage disposal regulations and carefully grinds the food waste with blades to avoid drains becoming blocked.


The cost to purchase and install InSinkErator Food Waste Disposer depends on the model you would like to install and the setup of your kitchen and sewage network. Following an inspection by a licenced plumber, we can prepare a quote based on the most appropriate installation method. We install InSinkErator systems across Melbourne and Greater Victoria. The systems are designed to be maintenance free provided you treat the device with care, do not flush items that are not meant for the InSinkErator and use it regularly so that the system does not dry out.

Here are 5 reasons why you should install InSinkErator Food Waste Disposer in your kitchen.

1. Clean and hygienic kitchen

Maintain a clean and hygienic kitchen with the InSinkerErator Food Waste Disposer. Immediately after food preparation, you can dispose food scraps down the kitchen sink. The system will work its magic and liquefy the waste into fine particles that will pass through the sewage system. This helps to avoid handling food waste to the bin and keeps your kitchen bench clean on a daily basis.

2. Less garbage waste

With the InSinkErator Food Waste Disposer, you will have less garbage waste.

3. Retrofitted in the kitchen

The InSinkErator Food Waste Disposer can be retrofitted into any kitchen. Whether you are building a new home, renovating your kitchen or want to install the device in an existing kitchen, this can be achieved by a licenced plumber. The InSinkErator is installed underneath your existing or new sink (inside the cupboard) and then connected to the sewage pipe network. Installation is quick and easy, and the device does not take up too much space.

4. Environmentally responsible

Be environmentally responsible with the Food Waste Disposer. Avoid more waste going to landfill by using a smart and innovative technological solution that liquefies food waste and passes it through the sewage waste network.
