I am a 77 year old Disabled person and this Garbage Disposal was pretty easy for me to install all by myself.Here's a "BIG TIP" for you... Although this unit is quite heavy and difficult trying to hold it up under the sink with your hands while trying to install it, I used a "Car Jack" under the sink to jack the Disposal

I ordered this bc I broke our garbage disposal and it took me all of 40 mins; between clearing out under the sink and reading the directions and installing the new disposal. My husband didn't even know what I was doing. I made the switch while I waiting for dinner to cook. Talk about multi-tasking. I also watch youtube videos which made

The disposal arrived in good time and was relatively simple to install and after turning on the tap to allow water through the device, plugged it in and turned it on.Unfortunately, there was a pungent smell of electrical burning and a hum signifying the disposal was not working.I used the supplied Allen key to turn the spinner and found

I've always had Insinkerator garbage disposals so I just didn't know any better but now I do. Simply put, this is truly the king of garbage disposals. The amount of power it has is ridiculous and it will tear through just about any food I've thrown at it. Now, I have been hesitant to test it with some tougher items (I've heard stories

Started having problems with my 13 year old Kenmore and had to stop using it. My research led me to this Waste King 8000 1hp. Amazon had a great price so I bit. If you'll notice my attached pic, the difference is astounding. The Kenmore was a mere 1/3 hp which I didn't know until I removed it and could read the label. No wonder I had

I'll admit it. I had not heard of Waste King and was nervous about buying anything outside the top two brands (ISE and Kitchen Aid). The low price and positive reviews convinced me to give it a try. So far, so great! After nearly a year of use, the unit still works flawlessly and has never jammed.At one point, I did have a leak that

My old Badger 1 finally needed replacing after over 12 years. While it still worked fine, it began leaking from the bottom. Since it gave me so many years of reliable service, I decided to replace it with the same model. I'm so glad I did as installing it was a breeze. Literally took my like 10 minutes as I was able to use the mount from

My old disposal started leaking. It had been 10 years so I opted to buy a new one. Almost all disposals come with no plug. I am a single lady and did not want to put on a cord and was lucky enough to find one with a cord here on Amazon. Shipping was fast and I got the same one that I currently had. With my little tool set I was able

If you want a garbage disposal this brand is unfortunately the only one worth buying. The mounting system is excellent so replacing a broken unit is easy, just use the existing mount and pop in the new unit and believe me you will be replacing them every 4-6 years. If you have a direct wire to the disposal, do yourself a favor an

Why am I writing a review about my beloved garbage disposal? Why am I referring to it as my "beloved" garbage disposal? I replaced a different garbage disposal from Costco; it had lasted a few years before giving up the ghost (the metal teeth within had basically corroded and broken off). Even before it met its untimely end, it

This unit replaced a 12 year old Badger that just gave up and quit. It's better than the old one in all ways, and easy to install if you have the proper tools. A couple tips I was given by a plumber friend...don't put rice down the disposal as it accumulates and clogs in pipes like plaque in your bloodstream...once or twice a year fill

This was bought to replace an older Insinkerator Badger 0.5HP. The previous model was atleast 7 years old and perhaps even older depending if the prior owner of the house replaced it. We used ours very seldom, opting to use a sink strainer most of the time. Our older model started leaking through the motor housing, which indicated

It may sound lame, but I'm going to go ahead and say it: This Thing Rocks!I don't know when I turned into an old man and got excited about things like garbage disposals, but apparently it happened.

I have installed dozens of Insinkerator Badger 5 garbage disposals (1/2 HP), and my customers were happy with the price and performance. However, within the past year, several of the disposals have developed leaks in the grinding chamber causing water to enter the electrical compartment. I switched to Waste King based on Consumer

This garbage disposal is super easy to install! When my InSinkErator Badger 5 got totally rusted in less than 2 yrs (my husband installed it at that time), I saw this one on sale and decided to give a try.

Our (same exact model) garbage disposal lasted a year and a half before it went out (started leaking out the bottom). It has a 2 year warranty so I called Waste King and they asked me to find the model number on it (fyi it is still attached to the sink) so I look all over it and see a sticker with the serial number on it but don't think

WOW, I am extremely impressed with the Waste King L-111 garbage disposer. My old garbage disposal was some generic brand that came with the house.

I purchased this make and model based on comparing reviews in the price range +/- 50 USD. I had a Badger 1 which, to its credit, lasted about 8 years. I went with Waste King because it was an easy swap, has an 8 year warranty, increased my HP from .25 to .75, and is pretty quiet.If you are replacing a disposal, I have confidence that

I almost didn't buy this disposal because of some very informative reviews discussed how difficult it was to install the sink mount. But they'd done such a good job of describing how to make it work, I decided to go for it.

OK... Unit is 99% plastic, but hey what today isn't, the mounting neck, internal blades, driveshaft and feed-tube flange are the only metal parts on this unit.The unit is small in circumference from any other unit I've had, which means you will have more space under your sink if you haven't replaced a disposal in the last year or so

This is a nice unit. I replaced a 1/2 HP Insinkerator Badger that started leaking after about 10 years. This Moen unit wasn't terribly difficult to install but there were a few things I would have like to know in advance (my fault for not researching 100%). 1) This unit has a plug, my Insinkerator was hard wired so I installed an

I just finished installing the Moen 3/4 HP Continuous Feed garbage disposal. It took me about 1-1/2 hours to gather my tools, empty the cabinet, pull out my old 1/2 HP Kenmore garbage disposal, replace it with the Moen, test and clean up. Both units are about the same size, though the Moen looks more "modern." Shrug. Impressions:1.

This unit replaced a Badger 1/2 hp disposal that wore out. I like the price (not much more than the Badger and more hp) and the fact it is flat on one side that makes for easier installation.

I was replacing a cheap 12 yr. old 1/2 HP Badger that was not only old but rusty. Does that matter as long as it chops your items? Yes, because it doesn't chop it small enough you're going to have plumbing issues. When I did the research on this Evolution series one of the features is that it's 2-stage process makes much processing

I just installed this on a farm sink and it was first a simple install and second left me plenty of room between the bottom and the sink base. Because I was concerned with the distance I had I chose this particular disposal because its not as long as some of the others. I have 19 1/2" from the bottom of my sink to the base of my cabinet.

Nice design and sound level. Ordered through Amazon. Quit working after 4 months. Contacted Moen customer support. "Try pushing on the blades with a wooden spoon" - sum total of their technical support. Since it was clearly frozen, "as a courtesy, we will send you a replacement." Really!! Two weeks later, no shipment notification. I

A decent 1/2 HP, relatively compact disposal unit by Moen, but without sound deadening insulation. If you must have a quiet unit, I don't believe this is it. It runs at around 2600 RPM, so it isn't going to put you to sleep.For Diy:1) Make sure you or someone you know is strong enough to replace the "snap ring" which hold the components

This item was a replacement for my 12-year-old Insinkerator 1/2 hp (now called the "badger"), which literally took up 1/2 the space under my double sink. In the interest of disclosure, I used said Insinkerator quite regularly when new, and it will literally chew up chicken bones, but it will also deposit said chicken bone debris in your

I like Moen products - i have never been disappointed with either their products or service. They avoid using plastic (ABS) in critical parts (see below re. issues with Insinkerator).

I recently purchased from Amazon and installed the 1/3 HP Moen Garbage Disposal. I had installed an Insinkerator garbage disposal in 1987 and used it every day. It worked fine until it became very noisy a few weeks ago and then totaly froze a few days ago. That made me think garbage disposals should last for about 30+ years. But

I bought this to replace a waste king that we had under the sink for many years. It looks identical as far as the construction goes to the unit itself. I will say that this uses the same mounting flange style as the insinkerator brand. these units are significantly smaller and take up much less room under your sink than most comparable

The Moen GXP33c Lite is just that. Moen quality in a lite weight and lite duty disposal. Perfect for any home kitchen due to it's size, it fits easily under the cabinet where others have pipe clearance issues. Not as large or noisy as the Badger it replaced. Grinds up dirty plate debris easily and that really is all any sink disposal

know that even if you thought you correctly knocked out the section during install it is worth another check.
