In fact, there are a lot of things that should never go down a garbage disposal. Fibrous foods, including celery, asparagus and artichokes can wrap around the blades and choke them.
In addition, you should avoid putting down :
- Potato skins,
- Bone fragments and eggshells,
- Banana peels,
- Fats / grease,
- Unpopped popcorn kernels,
- Onion skins,
- Fruit pits and seeds,
- Stringy vegetables like asparagus and celery.
