Loki, never put much of anything in the garbage disposal.  They are a plumber's cash cow.

Or go S-L-O-W-L-Y. I generally take about a minute with the peels from about 5 pounds of potatoes. As long as I take my time I don't have problems.

Wouldn't it be easier to toss them in the compost or even the trash?


It's almost never bad to feed someone.

Use a box cutter to open the plastic wrapping that was bundling a 4 pack of Coke 2-liters.

Bad idea.

Put artichoke refuse in the garbage disposal.

 

Or asparagus. :sad:

 

That was 20 years ago, and I still think twice about putting anything in there. We ended up replacing the disposal altogether.

 

Reminds me of a joke:

 

Guest:  Where's the switch for the garbage disposal?

 

Host:  We don't have a garbage disposal.

 

Guest:  Oops!

I accidentally garbage disposal-ed a small shot glass once and toasted the motor.  I will never again put shot glasses in the garbage disposal side of the sink.  Fortunately it wasn't very difficult to install a new GD ourselves and save on the plumbing bill.

Since no one else has asked. What happened? Did you get a 2 liter Coke shower? Or, was it more painful?

I will never not ever no matter what repeat this chemistry lesson I just experienced.

 

So, you know how some sausage making literature advises you to sterilise your mincer with (diluted) bleach? Do not do this. Boil it. Steam it. Park it in the oven. Use that shit they sell at the home brew store. Do. Not. Bleach. It. No matter what. Take food poisoning and possible death over the combination of bleach and stainless steel. Beaucoup bad shit. Too beaucoup.

 

Had a real good time cleaning off the shitty residue.

The kitchen and I got a coke shower. Kids learned some new words. They thought it was pretty funny.

Really? I use bleach on stainless steel fairly regularly (we have a stainless sink). Never had any problems. Was there some coating on your mincer that caused the issue maybe?

Maybe. But there's also boat loads of people online banging on about how you should wash your sink with CLR, vinegar, baking soda, dish washing detergent, the tears of babies and basically anything but chlorine-based bleach. I'm not sure if it's real or some kind of old wives' tale derived from the experience someone had long ago with, say, all the critical bits of an 800W Tefal mincer.

While we're at it, permit me to add another gripe. I will never again come across as so accommodating to the fruity dietary preferences of guests. No. I mean, leaving out a particular element that's a second tier element (say, the lettuce in a burger)? That's fine. No problem. I won't make you pick it out. But deciding, a few hours before, that you'd like to come to an event ... when two of the main elements of the dish contain trace amount of an ingredient you must never not ever consume for a somewhat irrational (but heart-string-tugging) reason? Fuck it. I'm not making something extra. I'm not buying something else. Bring your own ketchup, man.

 

Sorry. I'll stop being a bad person.
