Appliances: Taking FirstBuild's Space-Saving, No-Stall Disposer for a spin

1:22 /

A lower profile and smarter mechanics make this retooled disposer safer and more efficient.

[MUSIC] Hi I'm Megan Wollerton and Christina here at the firstbuild micro factory. With the low profile food disposer. So if the name didn't already tip you off, this disposer is a lot shorter than your standard garbage disposal. That means a couple of things. First, it means that you have more storage space. Under your sink for kitchen supplies or anything else. And because it has lower profile, when you drop something like silverware, a spoon or a fork inside, there's a better chance that it'll be sticking out so that you can grab it without having to turn it off and kind of fish around for it. Another interesting thing is that it's wider than a standard disposal which means that it's moving faster and will cut up your food more efficiently. It also has only one rotating blade instead of two. Because of how quickly the disposal rotates, it doesn't need a build-in pump to push out water either. It just uses that force to expel the water. Another cool feature is that the motor is brushless, and it's able to sense stalls before they happen. So if your disposal is heading towards a problem, it might know in advance and keep it from happening, so that any annoying calls to a plumber that cost you a bunch of money can be avoided. We're also told it's much easier to install than a traditional disposal. This disposal will be available on firstdeal.com in a couple of months. Thanks for watching. I'm Megan Ward. [MUSIC]
