Excerpt: We have had KitchenAid disposers in the past (2 in 43 years) with excellent performance. This model is exceptionally quiet. It is trickier to start. We definitely prefer a magnetic start batch feed model for safety.
Excerpt: Our existing disposal failed on us and this model was available and met on needs. It was on hand in the store and the purchase process was a breeze. It is very quiet and efficient. With grandchildren visiting, the batch processing feature was a useful feature.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Clean, Easy to install, Powerful, Quiet
Excerpt: Fairly easy to install if you follow their directions. Very quite and powerful. This is the second time I purchased this unit. Had the original for 2 yrs then moved to a new home. After 2 months took out the disposal they gave me (badger 5) and installed this unit. One again very happy with it.
Excerpt: I had a kitchen aid disposal for 35 years. But I didn't care for the new unit at all. The stopper was awkward and difficult to use to get the unit going.Also, it was installed in such a way that the electric tubing negated half the space under my sink. This wasn't even visible on the old unit.
