I want to welcome you to my website. My name is Pete and my website on garbage disposal is the place to be if you want some information that is direct, clear and without lies! I take my job serious and the fact that you are reading this now means that you take garbage disposals seriously too.
I have been involved in the kitchen appliance industry for years and I believe I know more than your normal guy. My colleague Sam helped me put together this website about everything you need to know on garbage disposers.
Which Disposer is the right one for you?
I made a list of things that you have to take into consideration if you have to pick a model with the right features to fit you. Here it is:
- Batch Feed or Continuous Feed? If you place safety first then the batch feed model is the right one.
- Grind Stages. The more stages your disposer has for grinding, the finer it will chop your waste before disposing it into your septic tank. So keep in mind what kind of waste you want to dispose.
- Noise is the thing most people are worrying about. Make sure your disposer is insulated well.
- Price, size and the type of waste are all factors to consider when buying a waste disposal system.
|Garbage Disposal||Motor (HP)||Grinding (RPM)||Price|
|InSinkErator Evolution Excel||1||1725|
|Waste King A1SPC Knight||1||2700|
|InSinkErator Evolution Compact||3/4||1725|
|Waste King L-8000 Disposal||1||2800|
|InSinkErator Badger 1||1/2||2600|
|Waste King L-2600||1/2||2600|
|General Electric GFC520V||1/2||2800|
