Never knew we needed this until we owned it! The DANCO Disposal Genie II Garbage Disposal Strainer and Stopper in black is a great little invention! Gone are the days of digging utensils out of the garbage disposal because they fell in while doing dishes! This little stopper comes with a simple set of instructions and is ready to use right out of the box. Simply insert the disposal genie into your drain and that's it. you're all set! The disposal genie fits snug and secure in the opening and does not leak. The top of the unit is a simple turn dial with 2 settings - open and closed. Leave the genie open to allow water to flow through and give the head a turn to close the strainer, allowing the sink to be filled for soaking dishes. It works great, and I cant ever see owning a garbage disposal without a disposal genie again!

The Disposal Genie II Garbage Disposal Strainer and Stopper in Black is an awesome product. Silicon scrapper helps clean dishes and push particles into disposal. It was constructed of tough, durable dishwasher safe plastic .Turning the strainer clockwise stops the water for soaking dishes. Fits most standard garbage disposal . Great product and will definitely recommend this item.

Danco's DISPOSAL GENIE II GARBAGE DISPOSAL STRAINER AND STOPPER IN BLACK is a very useful kitchen product. It slips into the sink drainage hole and prevents silverware from slipping into the garbage disposal. You can lift it out and use the attached rubber scraper to remove food waste from plates, if you wish. It easily lifts out. AND you can leave it in place while you run the garbage disposal. We had the first model of the Genie and loved it. This one has the additional function of being able to close the holes so that you can use it as a stopper as well as a strainer. Clever and useful.

This product is excellent! I was sick and tired of having utensils falling into the drain repeatedly, and that silly strainer that comes with the sink was just as annoying. With this awesome strainer I am care free as I go about my dish duties. I like that it can also act as a scraper but personally I think that is kind of gross, so I will just use a scraper separate from this thing. Turning the top allows you to close off the drain and fill the sink with soapy water. This thing really has solved so many problems for me!

The Disposal Genie 2 garbage disposal strainer & stopper in Gray color is a simple & effective upgrade for any sink that has a garbage disposal. This is a simple unit to install. Just drop it in the drain hole & you are done...! No need to worry about utensils going in the drain or in my case the normal screen filter getting clogged with food stuff. the holes are just the right size to help foods go through but stop everything else.. if you want to plug the sink simply rotate the stopper to the locked position. simple! there is also a scrapper on the bottom side that can be used to scrape off stubborn foods.

If you have a garbage disposal in your kitchen sink then this is a MUST for your home. This creative Disposal Genie II has a food scrapper and a strainer. Use the scrapper to scrape off stuck or baked in food from your dishes. The strainer allows water to flow through the disposal preventing utensils such as spoon, fork or knife falling in the disposal. These objects can destroy the disposal if not stopped quickly. It is also dangerous to put your hand inside the disposal to retrieve the fallen objects as the stuck disposal can free itself as you try to remove the fallen items. SAFETY FIRST. NEVER put hand inside the disposal until after turning OFF the power supply at the circuit breaker - DO NOT rely on the disposal switch. We have ruined some spoons but no more. The strainer can be closed off to fill water in the sink for soaking dishes etc. by turning it clockwise. It comes in 6 colors so get the one you like. Dishwasher safe (Top Rack only) for cleaning.

We have owned an original Genie disposal strainer for some time and use it daily. This new Genie ll garbage disposal stopper and strainer is a couple steps above the previous version both in functionality and quality. The Genie ll now incorporates a twist to open – twist to close stopper that works very well to stop water from flowing down the drain when you want to fill the sink with water. It figs snuggly in the disposal drain but is easy to remove or twist to open/close. The scrapper is still part of the design which we have found to be very convenient for removing food debris from plates, pots and pans. Its design helps prevent undesirable items from falling into the disposal and subsequently getting ground up by the disposal – think of utensils, jewelry, washrags, etc.. The Genie ll does it all so you can throw your old unsightly sink strainer and/or stopper away. It comes in a variety of colors to fit your decor and is dishwasher safe.. Recommended.

I thought the features of this item was worth at least giving it a try. At the least, it would keep a stray fork or spoon from falling into the disposal when draining the sink. I’m sure this is happened to everyone at least once in their lifetime. You don’t find it until you turn on the garbage disposal. The item is made to fit down into the garbage disposal drain. It comes with a rubber scraper on the end to assist you in scraping food into the garbage disposal prior to putting it in the drain to wash your dishes. When you’re ready to fill the sink, you put the stopper in the drain and then you just turn the top to close the item. When you’re ready to drain, you turn the top the opposite direction to open up the holes to allow the water to drain from the sink. This helps prevent silverware and most small items that you may have left behind, from falling down into the garbage disposal. Upon first looking at the item I was concerned that the top portion would stick up in the sink and could cause glasses and dishes to break if they bumped the top of the item. However after measuring the item, which is approximately 1 1/2 inches high from the bottom of the rubber stopper to the top of the handle and then measuring the drain depth, this should fit, with the top of the stopper flush with the top of the sink drain. Unfortunately for me, it is just a tad bit too big. I have a ANZZI Medusa GD-AZ013 1/3 HP disposal and the drain attached to it is just small enough that it will not allow me to push the stopper down into the drain. If you are looking to purchase this item, which I think would be great if I could use it, please be sure that you measure the size of your drain to make sure that it is at least 3 inches wide. Otherwise this is not going to fit.

The disposal genie II garbage disposal strainer stopper in gray is a great idea. It serves multiple functions in that it’s a stopper as well as a food scraper and utensil strainer. The round design seals to the sink and the movable strainer can be opened and closed. At first I thought I would want this in all black but then in using it I realized that the two tone color is best in letting you see how open or closed it is. Great product.

This is a strainer on steroids. Made out of good materials. The bottom part detached but allows you to scrape food from plates. Turn the strainer counter clockwise for drainage. And the opposite for free flow. This little guy keeps utensils from falling down the sink drain. The top is really hard to turn when you have wet hands but it does the job.

The Genie II Garbage Disposal Strainer and Stopper in Black is my new replacement for my old stopper which happened to also be the previous version of this Genie stopper. I loved the old one, but after 4-5 years of use, it was time for a replacement, and when I found this one, I had to have it. I really like the ability to use it as a stopper in addition to preventing stuff from dropping down in the disposal by accident. I like the more rounded design than the previous generation. Highly recommended. Available in 6 different colors, black is shown in photos.

This thing seems like a barely-useful gadget at first glance, just another thing to take up space in the kitchen sink and otherwise get in the way. But let me tell you, this thing is great. I have a top of the line Insinkerator disposal that works great but the rubber thing that you put in the drain hole tends to develop an air lock and water and debris don't want to go down the drain. It's very effective at preventing you accidentally dropping silverware and corn holders into the disposal but the airlock is irritating to the extreme. Well, this gadget solves that problem. Completely. Water and small debris flow right into the disposal now and you don't have to remove it to run the disposal. If you want to actually fill the sink with water then a quick twist on the gadget turns it into a sink stopper so no water will drain. On the other end it has a rubber scraper for scraping food off plates. I wish I had bought one of these things back when I first installed the disposal, it would have made our lives much simpler.

This DANCO Disposal Genie II strainer stopper really fits the bill for our sink and it looks nice! The practical design makes this a good stopper, strainer, plate scraper and plunger to force items into the disposal. When open it allows the small food particles that normally clog other strainers flow through while stopping flatware, bones and other items from going into the disposal (see photo). A small clockwise twist turns it into a stopper so you can fill your sink. The rubber scraper on the bottom is ideal for scraping off plates and pots. It is also ideal for pushing food into the disposal. This strainer is dishwasher safe so cleaning is easy. It is well built and durable. The strainer has about a 5” length and a diameter of about 3.25”-3.5”. Danco claims it will fit most disposals, it is a very tight fit in our ANNZI disposal.
