Your disposer is an invaluable tool for putting garbage in its place. Here  are some simple tips and practices that will insure your garbage disposer  provides you with years of trouble free service:
Always use cold water when running your disposer. Continue to run cold  water for a few seconds after grinding is complete.
Never use hot water during the grinding process. Never, ever pour grease  down your disposer or any other drain.
Do not allow food waste to accumulate in the disposer. This can lead to  corrosion of the grinding chamber and cause odors.
Occasionally grind citrus peels to keep your disposer smelling fresh.
Avoid running fibrous materials such as artichokes, corn husks and celery.
In-Sink-Erator Evolution and Evolution Excel disposers will grind hard objects such as  beef bones and fruit pits, but only small amounts should be ground in standard  models. Chicken bones are not a problem in any model.
When To Replace Your Garbage Disposer:
If your unit jams up or quits running, it usually can be freed up and reset  by your plumber.  Occasionally inspect your disposer for  leaks, bubbling or flaking of the finish or white residue on the exterior.  (See photos)
This means that your unit is corroding from the inside out and will soon be  flinging food waste all over the inside of your cabinet  (yuck!)
