Belfast sink - waste strainer/waste disposal

We have an old Belfast sink in our kitchen.

At the moment our only waste 'straining/disposal' is a simple sink strainer. I would love to either have a proper waste disposal unit installed or at least a decent basket strainer.

Two questions:

- I am struggling to find a waste disposal unit that might fit in the space available and offer batch feed operation (we don't want a continuous one). The best that I can find is the Insinkerator Evolution 100, but it is unclear whether it could be adapted with the cover in order for it to be a batch feed operation, due to the thickness of our ceramic sink. Not really sure who can advise me on this.

- If we ditch the waste disposal idea and just buy a basket strainer, how do we remove the existing plughole and install the strainer? Is it possible and is it too small a job for a plumber??

Thank you

Waste disposals and basket strainers require a bigger hole that that in a standard Belfast sink.

If you want a Belfast-style sink with strainer/disposal you'll have to fit a new one.
Leisure do one.
