Garbage disposal systems can be compromised by metal objects since they are designed simply to process food waste. Fortunately, an inventor from Worcester, Mass., has conceived of a device that would stop silverware and other utensils from entering the garbage disposal unit.

He developed a prototype for Future Dish to prevent silverware and other metal objects from damaging a garbage disposal. At the same time, it protects the silverware itself from being bent in the disposal. Therefore, it not only eliminates the need to repair or replace a damaged disposal unit, it also saves the cost of replacing damaged silverware. Thus it affords peace of mind since there is no longer a need to worry about metal utensils passing into the disposal. In addition, this novel device is convenient, effective and affordably priced.

The inventor’s personal experience inspired the idea. “I was tired of having silverware flushed from my dishwasher into the garbage disposal along with the food waste,” he said, “I wanted to find an easy way to alleviate that problem.”

The original design was submitted to the Boston office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
