  • I would try a vacuum hose, I have small hands so I also would put a glove on and try that

  • So get some tools and take it apart yourself.

  • MY mom had a super powerful new garbage disposal and when that happened to her... she just turned the damn thing on and it crushed the thing right up and it went down the drain. I couldn't believe it.

    Our disposal sucks and gets stuck with a popcorn kernel.

  • I would have to take the garbage disposal apart to maybe reach up and push it out????

  • I agree with the glove idea, if your hands are small. If the bowl went in, it should be able to come back out the hole into the sink. Can you break it while it's down there and pull out the pieces?

  • the bowl is made out of a very solid plastic. it is very difficult to break...
