  • very powerful (but don't expect it to be quiet)

    After reading many reviews and comparisons, we purchased this model and had it installed in a complete kitchen renovation. Our plumber initially gave us grief saying we should have bought a different well known brand. But afterwards had no issues or complaints about the product or installation. In fact they commented how it was a lot smaller than expected. (Watching it being installed, it didn't seem to be very difficult, but I am glad I used a professional plumber for the confidence of knowing it was installed properly.) We have been using it for about 2 months and find no major complaints. It is amazingly powerful compared to our 15 year old, underwhelming but reliable Insinkerator. It is in no way a 'hush' model, letting you know just how much power it has, sort of like a Roush Mustang lets you know it has power to spare. But it grinds and disposes of everything we stuff down its throat! My family doesn't seem to mind the noise as it just plain sounds like it is doing its job without a fuss. It doesn't have to run as long as our old one. No thrashing and straining, just GRIND BABY GRIND! I cannot comment on longevity or reliability but based on the track record posted in other reviews we shouldn't have any issues for a long time (as long as we don't abuse its power).

    THIS BAD BOY WILL TAKE ON ANYTHING, AND I MEAN ANYTHING. No more sorting what I may or may not put in the garbage disposal. Some might say it is noisy, personally I like the sound of "more power"
