Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

The Whirlaway 191 uses an EZ mount method of installation that can be done easily in thirty minutes with near zero technical ability if you follow the online videos.
That’s the one issue that I have with many garbage disposals – they prevent me from using as much cabinet space as possible. It’s tough to store things when the disposal is large. Thankfully, the Whirlaway 191 garbage disposal is small but mighty.
Another high-quality feature of this product is that the bearings used. It's permanently lubricated and won’t require any maintenance during the life of the unit. There is also a manual reset button on the machine instead of using a jam key.
This device and its almost every component are made of galvanized steel and the grind chamber is made of corrosion proof polymer. These provide the device to work with strength and moreover, give enough durability so that you can use this device year after year.
It’s easy to install and seems to be a very reliable unit requiring very little maintenance.
The grinding components are corrosion resistant, so you don’t have to worry. It also offers a removable splash guard and a 2-year warranty.

What reviewers didn't like

The Whiraway 191 is a bit noisy and lacking in refinement compared to its more expensive competitors.
Does not come with a power cord.
1/3 horsepower motor – suitable for not large amounts of waste
It is not as powerful as most of the other models. No in-home service certainly makes a little problem.
Smaller HP motor not suitable for big amount of waste
