The Waste Wonder food waste disposers newly launched by Kwikot can reduce kitchen food waste by up to 80%.
The food waste disposers, available in the WKI-2600 and the bigger WKI-3300 models, are designed for the effective and hygienic disposal of domestic food waste.
Kwikot says that, currently, South Africa loses 60% of all potentially recyclable domestic refuse paper and plastics each year to landfill sites because the materials carry food waste. The company also anticipates that by-laws requiring the separation of waste in homes, restaurants and urban environments – as proposed in the Waste Management Bill of October 2007 – will soon be implemented.
Kwikot Waste Wonders can contribute to reducing the amount of waste paper and plastic disposed to landfill rather than being recycled and can facilitate waste separation at home.
Kwikot Waste Wonders are easy to install and operate and they use a minimum of water and electricity. They can be fitted under any kitchen sink with a 90mm waste outlet. (Sinks with a smaller waste outlet can be cut to accommodate this size.) Food is scrapped into the waste outlet in the sink and, with the cold water tap running and the waste disposer switched on, the food waste is ground up and flushed through the plumbing system.
There are no blades inside the Waste Wonder waste food disposers. The units are designed with a stainless steel grind ring, swivel impellers and turntable. When the machine is turned on, the motor spins the grind ring at close to 2 700 rpm and the intense grinding action of the impellers reduces the waste into tiny two to three millimetre particles which are easily washed through the plumbing system. In this way, the Waste Wonder also eliminates the problems of drains or wastewater pipes being blocked by food waste.
Kwikot Waste Wonders are supplied with a two-year warranty.
