Easy to install, few small issues,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Waste King L-8000 Legend Series 1.0-Horsepower Continuous-Feed Garbage Disposal (Tools & Home Improvement)
Upside: Very easy to install, good instructions in both the paper manual and the Waste King online video. We replaced a contractor grade 1/3hp Badger in a Kohler porcelain sink (not deep well) that had a three screw mount with lock ring. The Easy Mount kit fit just fine, and installed with minimal effort. The only thing I needed that wasn't in the packaging was the plumbers putty. Install time: 1 hr which included a complete run-through before final assembly. Operation: Very quite, and very powerful. Beats the pants off that Badger.
Downside: The Waste King "Disposal Flange" is integral to the installation. This means that even though we have a matching Disposal Flange (and stopper) that matches our faucet hardware, it doesn't work with the Waste King. Secondly I don't like the fact Waste King has branding all over the silver Flange in the bottom of the sink. I'll buy their hardware but I have no desire to see their brand every time I use the sink. I'd order the *matching color* Flange off their website, but I'm pretty sure they have branding on it as well.

I cannot agree more with the branding. I do not pay to have to look at advertising. You can probably guess I will not be caught with a Nike swoosh or an A&E on my apparel either.

Just think about the lifetime warranty every time you look at "Waste King" in your sink. It's a good reminder, in case you ever have to use it. I didn't realize from the reviews, but it's not only a lifetime warranty - it's an in-home service lifetime warranty! Now that's pretty impressive for a product that cost less than a service call alone would probably cost.

That branding will come off real quick with a few passes from a dremel tool. :) Problem solved!
