Trust us. You have no idea how your garbage disposal works. But you're not alone! Until we watched this video, we had no idea either.
We've all heard the horror stories of getting a beloved wooden spoon -- or far worse, a finger -- trapped in one of these mechanisms, but just how do they work? Until now, we'd assumed that there were blades involved. But then, where does all the food go?
Somehow InSinkErator manages to answer these questions for us in a minute and a half. We feel so much better. How about you guys?
But wait -- were those animated chicken bones going into the disposal in the video? You can't do that, can you? Ah, well, the mysteries of the garbage disposal carry on. We'll keep digging.
