Does the world really need this???
Original Message   Feb 25, 2012 4:02 pm
Hi,

I suppose I qualify as a card carrying capitalist but sometimes I wonder  -- yes, even me who'll buy anything once.  I've just come upon the Drawer Vac.  It's half vacuum, half garbage disposal?

Check out the link below and tell me if this would work for you in your kitchen.

What happens on oily stuff/garbage? Oil will be sticking around the tray and you can figure it out, what is going to happen next.

Hi Andy,

The company that sells this alo sells a catch-all (the maker calls it an "interceptor") that's meant to capture any wet or gooey stuff before it gets to the main tubing the central vac system or under-counter mounted vac  you need to power it.  That however would also mean having to keep the catch-all clean to inhibit odors, etc.

I guess I can see the benefit in a home with a lot of kids. You might have lots of crumbs and spills and messes to clean up, but what happens when those messes aren't on the counter tops? It's an interesting solution to an interesting problem, but what is wrong with a quick wipe down?

Hi Total,

As usual, I think it just another brainstormed widget vendors hope to make a little money on.  If you miss the drawer thingy and stuff falls to the floor, they have those little ports your baseboards that you can sweep  stuff into to be sucked away by your central vac.  Yet, heaven forefend, that would actually mean touching a broom.

Although I'm all for the idea of central vacuum systems, I wonder as to what kind of powerhouse system you'd have to put in to support  the use of doo-dads like that.  I think one video I viewed had at least two drawer vacs in different spots in one kitchen.

Of course, if I had the money to foot the bill for stuff like that I'd probably have somene in two or three days a week instead.  I'd happily tell whomever, "Go do this . . . go do that," from my easychair.

Yeah it might work. They do offer free demo too. Actually I do need a special product to perform that task

Interesting, but why not simply hold your wastebasket under the counter lip and sweep all the crumbs/food waste into that?

Yeah, that would be a good point for them. What's wrong with it anyway? Why not sweep it first then vacuum?

I think it will really useful for home as well as office, in kitchen they are so many small garbage are collecting until you are in kitchen, in office also there are having counterparts there are full of food spread there, it is good to clean the small things from this vacuum accessories, using these accessories has so many benefits for business or kitchen purposes, its low cost is also beneficial to buy and use it.
