Disposal Genie – Must Have Kitchen Gadget

Updated on May 15, 2010

Are you tired of worrying that utensils or other small appliances will slide down the drain in the kitchen sink? If this has happened to you before, you've likely ended up with a damaged fork, knife, or spoon or a costly garbage disposal repair bill – or both.

With the Disposal Genie, you'll never have to worry about such things again! The Disposal Genie is a simple, affordable solution to a common problem that many people deal with in the kitchen on a regular basis.

What Is the Disposal Genie?

Made by Danco, the Disposal Genie™ simply slips into the garbage disposal opening in the sink. It still allows the types of small particles of food that should be going into your disposal to flow into it, as well as water. However, silverware and other large items can't fall into the drain and end up in the garbage disposal where they can become damaged, break the unit, and necessitate a difficult and messy retrieval process.

In addition to keeping items that should stay in the sink until washed or placed in the dishwasher from falling into your garbage disposal, the Disposal Genie can also play a role in your plans to keep your home as clean and healthy as possible. The product's Microban® design allows it to provide protection against the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew.

This simple product is widely available, costs only about ten dollars, and requires no installation. There's not even anything to attach. Literally, all you have to do is take it out of the package and place it in the sink drain. What could be easier than that?

Want to Try Your Own Disposal Genie?

It's easy to find a Disposal Genie of your own. The product is available at (see link to order at the right), Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Ace Hardware Stores. With a retail price of just about $10, it doesn’t make sense not to add a Disposal Genie to your kitchen sink if you have an installed garbage disposal.

Consider a Disposal Genie Gift

The item also makes a terrific gift idea for cooking enthusiasts – as well as those who are responsible for keeping their kitchens clean – on your gift giving lists. It's a perfect gift choice for people who are just starting out on their own with a first apartment or new home, as well as for individuals who are simply looking for ways to run their homes more effectively, efficiently, and cleanly!


Note: Special thanks to Danco's publicists for providing me with a Disposal Genie to try for myself. While I was a bit skeptical at first, now that I have one in my own sink I can certainly see the benefits. There's a good chance that a few people that I purchase gifts for will be receiving Disposal Genies of their own in the near future!

    This is a good idea. I can't even begin to tell you how many of those little corn on the cob handles I've lost to the disposal!
