I consider garbage disposal to be among the best kitchen appliances and for a good reason. Garbage disposals save you from the effort of having to scrape off remaining food from each dish and lets you wash your dishes without being bothered by small food pieces clogging your sink. 

If you are looking for a powerful garbage disposal, then I would suggest you look at the following features: the motor size, grinding chamber, auto-reverse, and noise level.

In short, you want to choose garbage disposal which makes the least noise, is easy to install, and operates smoothly with fewer jams.

My Experience – Is It Worth Your Money?

Moen GX100C GX Series 1 HP 2

Ever since I was a small boy, I never saw my parents use a garbage disposal in the kitchen. That did not stop me from trying one in my kitchen, now that I live in my own house. 

With Moen GX100C GX Series 1 HP Garbage Disposal, I no longer need to clean the dish manually before washing them, since larger food scraps could clog up my plumbing pipes.

In addition, I no longer need to have a stinky bin full of garbage in my kitchen, which I have to throw away every day. After buying the Moen GX100C GX Series 1 HP Garbage Disposal, I was surprised at how simple it was to install the garbage disposal. All I had to do is position the garbage disposal then twist and lock it into place.

Thanks to its compact and lightweight design, this garbage disposal left enough space underneath my sink. The polished stainless steel stopper looks good and fits well compared to other stoppers you find on other units.

What I like about this stainless steel garbage disposal is the fact that it comes with a pre-installed power cord. This saves you the money and time as you will not need to search and buy any hardware or power cord.
