It’s the little things that can make all the difference. Case in point, a kitchen disposal air switch that costs all of about $60 at your local home improvement store.
No longer must you reach across the counter or open a cabinet for the traditional “light switch” to flip for your disposal (all the while dripping water across the counter or down your cabinets) but instead it’s mounted on your counter top, alongside your faucet.
Besides the cost of the air switch itself you’ll need a dedicated outlet under the sink (if your existing switch is on the wall an electrician can easily pull the power from there) and the labor of an electrician and/or plumber if you aren’t the handyman (or woman) type. I’m not, so I used both, one to pull the power and the other to install the disposal itself.
Here are a few photos of what it looks like. This along with my counter depth fridge may be my two favorite choices in the kitchen.
