Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The operation is smooth and quiet. With two babies in the house and my wife’s office right off of the kitchen, that is much appreciated
For a disposer that hasn’t adapted any handy patented technologies, I find it quite hard to believe how silent it is.
Most people seem to have the same opinion as us in that for a 1/2 horsepower disposal, the noise insulation is quite good. The chamber is made of galvanized steel.
Other features include overload protection technology, which will stop you from feeding too much food through the system. Additionally, there is also a manual reset option.
This is a value for money garbage disposal that can easily fit into your budget. The price of this disposal is similar to the competitive range.
The built-in blades are strong enough to crush through common types of food waste and don’t need to be sharpened. One of the advantages of choosing this unit is easy installation.
The vortex speed can rotate up to 1726 round per minute to ensure the effectiveness of grinding the waste.
The disposer is made of high quality stainless steel materials that adds to its durability and corrosion resistance.
Moreover, the stainless steel used in its construction makes the garbage disposal extremely durable for heavy duty usage.
An electric switch optimizes efficiency, while increasing safety when you need to shut off the unit.
A space-saving design will not take much space under your kitchen sink.
The garbage disposal is also easy and safe to operate; thanks to its ability to connect to a switch. Ideally, it can work with or without its food cover, and this means it will easily dispose the food waste.

Reliable and beautiful design that comes with the KitchenAid name
The grinding quality is impressive. All you need to do is place the waste inside and open the water tap, and it will instantly grind your food waste into the tiniest pieces.
It is a continuous feed unit. This is the most popular type of garbage disposal found in most apartments. They are simple to use and tend to cost a bit less than batch feed models.
The mechanism of this garbage disposal unit is a continuous feed which once turned on will continue to move the sharp blades to cut through any food waste dropped into the entrance.
Surprisingly, not many people complain about the noise this disposer makes, and as this is one of the biggest complaints I come across, I must say I’m impressed it works quietly.
This is the best cheap garbage disposal for the money.

What reviewers didn't like

My only complaint is that the installation instructions weren’t completely clear on what the attachment ring looked like, so it required a bit of fiddling to figure out how to get it released from the old model that I was replacing.
One of the concerns that we have with this garbage disposal unit is the warranty. We don’t feel that the one-year warranty is enough to cover something that’s likely to break years down the road.
Produces some noise.
Short warranty period
The price tag is a little higher, but the efficiency and speed make up for this.
No sound insulation system
Less powerful motor
Installation is confusing
Like most continuous feed models, it does not include a power cord. You will need to add a power cord or wire it directly. You may need to hire a professional to get it properly installed.
This garbage disposer only comes with a 1 year warranty, and this is where many customers have had a problem. Whilst the unit gets rave reviews for the first few months, many people complain it breaks down completely not long after the warranty has expired.
