Power & Speed

Waste King 111 garbage disposal contains a 1/3 HP permanent magnet motor that spins at a rate of 1900 rpm. This motor is best for your daily use, but the amount should be light. If you want to dispose of bones and lots of waste on a regular basis, you should go for a higher power motor like ½ HP or ¾ HP disposal.

Though I always suggest not to put hard food waste like bones and big fruit pits inside your disposal. It will help you to long last your disposal if you use it correctly. The stainless-steel swivel impellers easily grind the food waste inside your disposal. It contains a removable splash guard that prevents splashing water outside while operation. On the other hand, you get a stopper to prevent accidentally fall nonfood items inside the disposal.

Once you install the disposal, you do not need to worry about getting your regular waste out of the kitchen, but do not misuse the disposal.

Installation

Unlike most of the popular waste king garbage disposals, this disposal contains 3-bolt mounting system. Waste king 9980 it is actually the 3-bolt version of Waste king L8000. As waste king’s two mounting systems are both quite easy to install, I have no problem with any of these units.

But one may have preferences over installation process. I will say with both systems, you can easily complete the installation. In a 3-bolt mounting, you need to mount the disposal itself with the lower part of your sink. With EZ mounting system, the mounting needs to get placed first, then you need to put the disposal in it by locking the disposal’s head in the mounting.

The 3-bolt mounting is more classic and more strongly connected than EZ mounting system. But EZ mounting is easier to remove and reinstall. So, it’s up to the users to decide the one more suitable for them.

Noise

It may not be the quietest garbage disposal in the market, but the noise level is quite tolerable. Most of the users say that the disposals sound level is somewhat ok.

Price

The price of waste king legend 111 is quite low than most of the garbage disposals in the market. It surprises me like many of the consumers, how efficiently Waste King is providing value with their low range disposals. It certainly produces less noise than the other powerful disposals. You can easily install it and forget that it's hiding under your sink and eating all your food waste. The undeniable efficiency makes it one of the most popular disposals of 1/3 HP range.

Quality

The disposal’s grinding chamber is made of corrosion free stainless steel that ensures less jam and more grinding ability. The outer side of the disposal is plastic though.

Many people think that the manufacturers always compromise the quality of a less priced product. Waste King has proved that is not always true. The price range of Waste King may be the least in the market, but the functional efficiency is quite impressive.

I have seen many people using Waste King 111 garbage disposal for a long-term period. This is a very good disposal for primary use but not heavy usage. If you need to dispose a high amount of food waste on a regular basis, you should not go for a small disposal like this.

Value for money

Waste King legend 111 can be a good value for money purchase for anyone who needs a disposal for their small house. It gives you quality function by properly grinding you everyday kitchen waste, the sustainability of the product is very impressive, and you get this unit for a good price.

Waste King installation

Installation with the EZ mount system is a great feature of this Waste King 111 disposal. While installing it for the first time, you need to mount the system with the sink properly. Then you need to take the disposal and place it to the mounting and lock it.

​If you need to remove the disposal later for cleaning, you just need to turn it to unlock from the mounting. It is that easy. Besides that, you get all the instructions and tools needed to complete the installation.

Warranty

Comparing the other disposal units in the market, Waste King gives you a long-term warranty in every unit they make. Most of the high-end disposals carry a warranty of 10 years; even few products have a lifetime warranty. Comparing that the lower end disposals it carries a small amount of warranty.

​This disposal has two years in home warranty, which means they will go to your home if you call them for any problem within this two years warranty period. Comparing other disposals of the waste king it may seem very short, but Comparing the price and other brands warranty period, it looks fair enough.

PROS

  • Value for Money Purchase
  • Best for small budget
  • Included power cord
  • Included splash guard & stopper
  • Small in size and light weight

CONS

  • Splash guard prevents the water drain slowly.
  • Small grinding space may cause grinding time bit lengthy regarding disposing high amount to foods.
  • Warranty period is short comparing high-end waste king disposals

In conclusion, I can say that it is an excellent deal for people who want a budget purchase and need the disposal for a small family. If you think this disposal may not fulfill your need, then you should add few more bucks and go for the Waste King 2600 which is a ½ HP garbage disposal. It is more powerful and can be a great budget purchase too.
