      Quite and effective

      While the operation is not entirely quiet, it is significantly quieter than my previous garbage disposer. Sometimes it makes you wonder if it actually working or if it may be stuck because of how quiet it is compared to others. One issue that I have with it though is that the rubber cover inside of the entrance is too tight and doesn't let all the water pass as quickly as needed so sometimes water accumulates on top making you think it is stuck. Nevertheless, I just put my finger on the rubber and press a little to make the entrance slightly bigger and the water passes through immediately. It's a great disposer, you most likely will be happy with it.

      I am just a computer programmer, very limited "handy" skills, my main tool is using my phone to call a professional if anything needs to be done. Friends convinced me to try installing this disposal myself when I complained that plumbers were asking $160 on up for doing it. So as skeptical as I was about my ability, I first watched some youtube videos and then decided to give it a try. I'm sure it took a lot longer than most would have spent (3 hours to remove old and install new), it wasn't too bad of a job to do and because this unit has the power cord already installed, that was a nice bonus. The unit is working great, it's quiet, doesn't vibrate, and I would recommend this to anyone.

      Easy Installation, Quiet Operation

      We lived with a failing garbage disposal for almost a year, after a plumber recommended we not replace it - because "nobody uses those anyway" - but we absolutely use ours. Rather than call another plumber, I googled replacement instructions and decided to try it myself. Confounded by the number of options online, I headed to the local Best Buy and asked one of the employees for help. They only had this one in-store, but he assured me that the HP would be sufficient for our needs, and the price was much less than I expected to pay from the online research. I was pleasantly surprised that the in-box instructions were clear, simple, and short. I removed our old unit and had this new, smaller, quieter, unit installed in under 20 minutes (including cleaning out under the sink.)

      We previously purchased a Badger that lasted us only 1.5 years. That was barely using it, only washing minor stuff off in sink. We have only had this one about 3 months, but so far so good. I love the design and color compared to the Grey/Black Badger we had. It is quiet and works great! Best part was how easy this was to install. My husband took over 4 hours to install the Badger and this was installed in about 40 minutes. Of course, I can't speak upon how long it will last because I have only had for 3 months, but the reviews are why I purchased this item and so far, everything has been true.

      I do not remember what I read in terms of reviews before I purchased the item but I do remember it was not the item I had initially thought I would purchase. It just so happened being the only 1 of 2 options on the floor at my local store. Fortunately the price seemed fair and seemed to be powerful enough for most of our household use. It was easy to install and was happy it was already corded. It is quieter than the previous (smaller 1/3hp) disposal which is funny because the noise used to clue me in on the performance. It seems solidly built, so hopefully if I get asked again about my opinion on this item it is many years down the road because it holds up that long.

      My old In-Sink-Erator gave up the ghost after 30+ years of faithful service. I read the reviews of this Frigidaire and thought it looked like a good model. One of the Geek Squad guys gave it a thumb's up when I picked up the unit in the store as well. I got it installed along with a new faucet and I love it. It's quieter than my old one was and it seems to be very efficient. I guess I didn't realize how much my old one had been degrading before the motor finally seized. So far this little disposal is working like a champ, and its small footprint takes up less room under the sink.

      Instructions could be better

      The unit itself seems to be fine. My issue is with the installation manual which was printed on tissue paper in, maybe 4 point font. Very hard to read. I missed the part about the dishwasher knockout plug but found out in a hurry when I ran the dishwasher for the first time. Sprayed everywhere! I selected this unit because I didn't want an Insinkerator which failed on me and leaked. I hope I have better luck with Firgidaire.

      The install of this disposal was easy since the parts are compatible with most disposal units. This unit has a three pronged plug, so you will need an under the sink grounded outlet, preferably a ground fault circuit. The diameter of this disposal was smaller than my previous unit, so there is more space under the sink and it runs smoothly and does not make much noise when operated.
