First off, all internal cutting components are stainless steel, so no corroded cutting components here. This unit is very quiet and VERY powerful. This is literally a HumVee for my sink to replace that Yugo I had been using!
Some Installation tips:
I'm a very handy person, but this was an easy installation. My existing drain piping connected right up with no mods needed. My unit was hard-wired with Romex. I simply added a wall mount receptacle box, turned the breaker off, ran the Romex to the new box to a standard plug receptacle and simply plugged the Waste King into that. Much, much easier than trying to re-wire that stiff Romex to the bottom of the disposal!
In my opinion, don't use the supplied rubber drain gasket, use plumbers putty and be done with it. $2.50 for a small tub with plenty left over. The gasket is convenient and easy, but it wont be as good or durable of a seal as the putty is. You really don't want to have to redo the drain seal 4 years or so (or earlier) down the road. Leaks suck, so do it right the first time to avoid messy damage and forget it. My installation took less than 2 hours and 2 cocktails. I had all parts ready.
Here's what I recommend you buy:
-If hard-wired with Romex, get a single receptacle, wall mount box. A duplex outlet for 120v. Outlet cover plate. If you already have an outlet, you don't need these. Or, you can go luxury and install an air switch with a built in receptacle.
-Small tub of Plumbers Putty. Knead out a small ball, roll it out to a "snake" that fits end to end around the the drain flange against the drain spout and install from the sink side. No putty underneath, use the fiber gasket there under the large nut. Make sure the drain is tight, fully seated, then remove any excess putty.
Turn your breaker back on and you're in action. This is a very powerful and well thought out food disposal that should last you many years, even with heavy use!
At one point, I did have a leak that I eventually determined was due to improper installation. (This was by the same "professional" plumber who reversed the hot and cold supply lines when installing a kitchen faucet. He just didn't connect the drain hose properly.) While investigating the issue, I called Waste King to inquire about possible in-home service or warranty replacement. I was blown away by their level of customer service: no waiting on hold, just an immediate connection to a person who really knew the product and was unexpectedly diligent in resolving my problem -- which, as it turns out, wasn't even their fault.

tiene mucha potencia no lo he probado con huesos ni cosas duras solo uso ligero
no es ruidoso, la verdad viene muy bien aisalado, es un sonido de trabajo muy leve, se intala muy rapido trae todo lo necesario y es sencilloo hacerlo,
el unico contra que le he encontrado es que no tiene boton para inicio hay que conectar y desconectar, lo solucionamos poniendole un apagador de pared conectado al tomacorriente para que encendiera y apagara como cuando prendes un foco
The first unit came with a broken mounting nub that wasn’t noticeable until I tried to mount it on the sink ring. I requested a replacement from Amazon, which was a quick and easy process, other than the obvious minor hassle of repacking and shipping the first one back. Not having the use of the second sink compartment was somewhat more frustrating, because it took 5 days to get the replacement. I’m not sure why, as I am a Prime subscriber… so the 2-day shipping from Amazon doesn’t really mean 2 days anymore. Anyway, that’s an Amazon issue, not a product problem.
It took me about 45 minutes to unpack and install the new garburator, since the old one was already out at this time. The existing plumbing and drain trap fit with no problem to the new unit. I checked for connection leaks and turned on the switch and it worked as expected. I have a very happy wife again. The first test run on a batch of vegetable peels went through as was expected, so this is obviously not a review of ongoing durability. I don’t expect any problems though.
I have one suggestion to buyers though. The installation instructions tell you to use a hammer to tighten the mounting ring. As a retired contractor (not a plumber) I would never do that. Take 2 screwdrivers and clip them behind the two mounting ring ears (like a snipe or breaker bar) and firm pressure easily locks the ring in place, without any pounding necessary.
I had to adjust the length of my drain pipe in order to connect it since it is bigger than my old unit. Also, I used the plumber’s putty to seal the stainless steel flange since I don’t have stainless steel sink as mentioned in the installation manual. Other than these, the installation was pretty straightforward. The noise level of this unit is about average.
Overall, this is a great purchase.
