Waste King is known for making top-of-the-line food waste disposer units. Every model in their product lines come with high-powered permanent magnet motors that turn higher RPMs than any other brand out there. This means that jamming is virtually eliminated since the motors produce more power per pound than InSinkErator and KitchenAid. Waste King garbage disposal units also feature glass-filled nylon grinding chambers and stainless steel grinding components so they will not rust out or corrode ensuring a long lifespan. On top of the high quality materials and design, each WK unit comes with the highest in-home warranty in the industry making them a great investment. Customers love Waste King and often score the disposal models impeccably; average 4.5 starts out of 5 or higher. Read the most popular model Waste King L-8000 review here.

Insinkerator garbage disposalsIf you are wondering what company actually developed and invented the garbage disposal, you needn’t look any further than InSinkErator. InSinkErator has had nearly a century of time to perfect the garbage disposal. They offer a number of different types and styles of food waste disposers from low horsepower to high-end, powerful models, to models that are specifically designed to be used with septic tanks, and even models that are made for deep sinks. With such a variety, there certain to be a perfect unit for everyone’s personal needs. Customers have rated the high-end products, mainly the Evolution series, with extremely high ratings (4.5 and above). I would stay away from the lower end budget models, the Badger series. They get scores of 3.5 and below on average. See my in-depth InSinkErator Evolution Compact 3/4 HP Review for one of their best models.

KitchenAid is a company that specializes in kitchen appliances. If you do some research into their garbage disposal line, you will see that they do offer a few different models, but nowhere near the amount of selection that Waste King and InSinkErator offer. KitchenAid garbage disposal do rate well with customers due to the durable design and corrosion-resistant build, but don’t seem to sell as much volume as the competition. If you are looking for a standard or basic model, the Kitchen will be quite sufficient and deliver what you require effectively. See the complete line of KtichenAid Waste Disposals at here.



All-in-all, it seems that the two most popular brands are Waste King and InSinkErator.
