Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

A new Snap and Lock mounting system make the A1SPC compatible with many other disposer-mounting systems without the need for adaptors.
I can add waste to the unit while the garbage disposal is running. The stainless steel swivel impellers do their job, and I have yet to experience a clog or jam.
The one thing is truly amazing about this disposer is that it goes for a little over $160 dollars.
It turns out the Waste King Knight is one of the easiest garbage disposals to install thanks to its “Snap and Lock” mounting system. The instructions are easy to read and simple to follow, and it took me no more than a few minutes to remove our existing garbage disposal and fit the new Knight.

It’s easy to install and operate as well, and all septic tanks of regular size can work well with this disposer.
Mounting Waste King A1SPC Knight is even easier as it comes with a patented Snap and Lock mounting system.
Ultra-quiet operation won’t wake up the neighborhood
Excellent lifetime home service warranty.
Includes special Silencer Technology made from the same material that makes music studios soundproof

What reviewers didn't like

At 15 inches deep this is a big unit and is even bigger than the Legend series of disposers. So check you have sufficient clearance before ordering.
My only complaint about the Waste King A1SPC is a minor one. The black food guard is made out of durable rubber, and it’s butt ugly. Unfortunately, it can’t be removed.
The rubber food guard around the sinkhole is not removable
You need to measure the space under your sink before going for a purchase because the size of this unit is pretty big.
Make sure you have enough room underneath your sink to fit 8.8 x 8.8 x 15 inches. While this may not be the largest disposer on the market, it’s quite larger than how it looks in the picture.
Can’t remove rubber food guard if it gets damaged or discolored.
Household with limited space under the kitchen sink cannot install this unit.
One or two garbage disposal reviews mentioned that the splash guard discolored over time and began to collect food, and because it is not removable, this can present problems;
