Garbage Disposal Installation

Which Garbage Disposal is Best?

Here at Will Fix It, we hear that question a lot. While there isn't a one-size-fits-all answer that works for all homeowners, here are a few factors to consider when deciding which garbage disposer to buy:

  • Continuous-Feed models tend to be easier to use, quicker to work through waste and can be less expensive.  
  • Batch-Feed models are easier to install, can be somewhat safer, particularly if there are children in the house, though may be more expensive.
  • Horsepower - Most models run from 1/2 hp to 1 hp. Depending on the amount and type of waste in your kitchen, the more horsepower, the quicker the job with finer grinding to reduce clogged pipes.
  • Hard-wired or Outlet - Disposal units that don't come equipped with a cord will have to be hard-wired.
