When it comes to garbage disposals, you really do get what you pay for. They come in a wide range of quality levels and the better the quality, the higher the cost. Although disposals are nothing more than grinders, cheap ones won’t last very long and quality ones will last longer, operate more quietly and do a better job of breaking down the stuff you need to be ground up.
Why you should invest in a good quality garbage disposal:
– Cheap disposals are very noisy; the vibration of the unit while it is working can create annoying sounds. This is partly because the cheaper units lack sufficient insulation.
– The blades in a cheap disposal will dull more quickly.
– The grinding chamber will last longer if it is made from stainless steel. Cheaper units are often made from metals that have less rust resistance.
– The larger the motor, the more power the disposal will have and the better equipped it will be to grind up anything and everything. If you have a choice between a cheap 1/3 horsepower unit or a 1 horsepower one, you should opt for the largest and strongest.
