Certain types of stringy vegetables such as celery and asparagus can spin a web in the disposal housing and bring the entire mechanism to a halt. Strands from these vegetables become so wrapped around blades that they can actually pull them off the disposal unit itself.
Be careful with potato and banana peels too. They’re not as stringy as celery and asparagus, but they can be too tough for the disposal to handle with ease. Go the safe route and throw these strands and peels away. Better yet, compost these disposal no-nos.
