How to remove vowels from a word

I am confused as to how to remove the vowels as efficiently as possible without doing each one individually.

def disemvowel(word):
    word.remove("A", "E", "I", "O", "U")
    return word

I don't know any python, but the first step I would personally take is turn word into lowercase. So you only have to check for "aeiou", rather than both "aeiou" and "AEIOU".
