    Not my first probably not my last disposal install

    Posted

    Price: Was a little more than a few other brands with similar specs. Install: Easy even for a beginner just read the docs closely. I found the install process predictable except for a few things. It mentions you need the "fiber seal" to be placed between the lower assembly and the sink yet no seal is included. If you read further you will see that they want you to use the rubber seal provided that would normally be used as a top seal for a metal sink. In my case I have a composite sink and used plumbers putty ( not included ) I had to cut the provided elbow but I expect this is also normal though not clearly mentioned in the docs ( they do mention you need a saw ). Quality: Seems well built but we shall see. My KitchenAid lasted 12 years with a few leaking issues over that time when it finnaly died due to my own stupidity using a plunger on my sink to clear a clog and blew out the gasket. ( don't do it man!!!! ) Features: Um ya its a disposal not a car : ) Performance: Quieter than my last unit a kitchen aid Kadet 250 1/2 HP. Seems to grind well but does take a little longer to work but seems to grind to a finer level probably a lot better for the drain. Drainage is very good even while grinding.

    King of Disposers

    I am very impressed with the Waste King disposer. I bought it to replace my Insinkerator 404 which had corroded and was leaking after 5 years. The Waste King looks to be very built and the composite housing will not corrode. The motor is not silent but is quieter than my previous Insinkerator, in spite of having sound deadening. This Waste King made it easy to convert from the Insinkerator as it came with an extra rubber splash guard that facilitated using the old Insinkerator mount. The instructions are even guide through converting from a "competitor's" model. The hardest part was removing the preinstalled power cord as mine is direct wire but it was no big deal. This model has an 8 year warranty and, for the money, I will be pleased it it lasts that long but suspect it will do better. There are also models that carry a lifetime warranty.

    Very Low Quality - Consumer Reports was paid off

    I purchased this unit largely based on Consumer Reports review and I usually trust them but they missed it this time. First I noticed that the rubber splash guard was torn but when ahead with installation hoping the wife would approve. Installation was a pain, due to poor design, And I have installed many disposals. After install I determined the splash guard would not make it. It is very cheap and even if replaced it would not last. Next, when turning it on it starts with a loud clank and then is noisy and seems unbalanced. The sink does not drain well and it does not grind very well at all - takes a long time. Mine may have been defective but I DO NOT RECOMMEND Waste King. I am taking out and taking it back.

    Garbarge Disposal

    Is working great so far. The user manual says that is will grind bones, I'm sure it means small bones like chicken legs and such, but, I don't put bones or grease down the disposal. The installation instructions were "EXTREMELY" confusing. You begin reading instructions for the 3-Bolt install and then all of a sudden you're reading instructions for the Quick Mount install and the rest of the instructions for the 3-Bolt install is 2 or 3 pages over. That should really be changed. It would've confused Einstein. Other than that, I have no complaints. The instruction manual in the only reason I gave it a 4 star. If they had been easier to follow, I would've given it a 5 star definitely.

    Waste King the finest name

    Posted

    She purrs like a kitten. Best warranty of any competitor including in sink erator. Waste king is the finest name and the only disposers I will ever own. Made in USA (California) and beats all the competition. This 3/4 is replacing a 1/3 in sink erator that's only 6 years old but leaking and busted, cheap junk. Waste King, the best. And I'm just a homeowner, not affiliated with the company. I just acknowledge and respect quality.

    Not looking good!

    I just finished installing a Waste King-3/4 HP EZ Mount Disposer-9940 and so far, what a large disappointment. Installation was no easier or harder than any other, the sound is pretty quiet, but the first thing I tried to put through it was some watermelon rind and it took forever. The jury is still out as far as keeping it, but it is certainly over priced for the performance level. In my opinion, it is worth $59 tops; no where near $170 but I am willing to try it for a few days. Overall, very disappointed.

    Our handyman/installer had to cut the electrical cord and hook-up manual electrical. No place to use a plug under our sink. He said he had NEVER seen a disposal with an actual plug at the end. He also hac a diffcult time fitting it in under the sink due to the size I hope the tubing and pipes under the sink never clog because it will be VERY DIFFICULT to disconnect the way it is wedged in. I really should have returned it for an exchange. Would never buy it again!

    This disposal works great! It is quite quiet, although there are certainly quieter disposals. Disappointed that it couldn't be hard-wired without voiding warranty, so i had to install an outlet under the counter. Also, there is not a "quick" attach feature on this particular model. I found a way to use the quick attachment parts of my former disposal, so that made the install easier than it would have been. Overall, I'm REALLY happy with it.
