Hi Brad, the stopper won't let larger food waste enter the garbage disposal unless you remove it from the sink opening. This stopper lets water and small food particles ″in″ the disposer but keeps silverware and other objects ″out″.
Yes, although you'll have to remove it to allow larger waste items to go through.
Love insinkerator and this is perfect for it
Just turn the stopper down and should seal the drain.Go the other way to let water back down.
Debbie, what do you mean by "getting it to work"? It is meant to be a stopper for the opening of the disposal that when it is in the up (open) position, water and small particles (only) of food will flow through, but silverware will not. That's why it is called "SilverSaver". When you turn the top part a little, it will drop down and close the stopper and the sink will fill up because water will not drain through the disposal. You must push the whole thing down evenly into the opening of the disposal until it stops and makes a good, even seal all the way around. Then you rotate the top part a little and it will drop and seal or rotate it to a point where it stays open by itself. If your problem is that the rubber seal won't make a good seal with the disposal drain, you may have a mismatch. The SilverSaver is an Insinkerator Brand accessory. If you are using it with another brand of garbage disposer, the drain opening may be bigger and it is not getting a good seal. But I would think that most brands are about the same size opening and that the Insinkerator accessory would fit most, but maybe I am wrong about that. So check what brand of Disposer you have and if it is not an Insinkerator, that might be your problem. If you do have an Insinkerator, re-read what I said above and try that out. Make sure you are pressing the stopper down all the way down evenly into the disposer opening and then use the top part to close it off or to keep it open so water and small pieces of food will flow through (but not your silverware). Then when you are finished rinsing your dishes and utensils and there are larger pieces of food in the sink, pull the SilverSaver all the way out so those big pieces will fall into the disposer for grinding. Hope this helps, but if not, ask more questions.
yes. it stops all silverware to enter into the chamber. nicely fits into the sink
The excellent performance of this product is the only thing that matters.
Yes. It fits any standard kitchen sink and is easy to pop in or take out just like a regular stopper you would normally use to retain water. This one is actually better....you just give it a quarter turn and it’s up or down. Don’t even have to remove it. Stops hands, silverware, and huge pieces of food that don’t need to be going through the disposal anyway. I love it!
Absolutely! It works great on the side of our double sink that supports the garbage disposal. We tried many other types that failed; however, this sink stopper has worked perfectly from day one.
