In 1927, architect Mr. John W. Hammes invented the first food waste disposer in Racine, Wisconsin.
He came up with the idea, perfected and then patented the design, then founded the company – InSinkErator® – in 1938. Now, InSinkErator® is the world’s leading manufacturer of food waste disposers and near-boiling hot water systems for home and commercial use, which produces 20,000units of disposers per day.
