Then why are there two products?

Badger 100 is the HomeDepot version of Badger 1, you can go to a Homedepot store and buy it from the shelf but to buy a Badger 1 you need to get it online and wait for a few days for delivery.

Comparison of InSinkErator Badger 1 and 100 garbage disposals

Both disposals are powered by a 1/3 HP motor, these are the least powerful motors among all garbage disposals. But that doesn’t mean they can’t grind food wastes, both disposals do a good job in disposing of whatever is thrown the drain. Their motors are slow-speed motors, like all other InSinkErator models, which run at a speed of 1725 RPM. Its overall height is around 11.5 inches so it can be fitted in tight spaces.

Badger 1 and Badger 100 are suitable for hostel rooms and small households where cooking is light. Both use 3-bolt mountings, and has non-removable splash guards. Their chamber capacity is 26oz. Both have rugged galvanized steel constructions for longevity.

Both Badger 1 and 100 are covered under a warranty of 1-year.

A few years back I bought a garbage disposal for the first time in my life. And the buying experience wasn't good. There were lots of models in the market, and I was not sure about which one to buy. They all looked the same to me. So once I went through the experience I started this blog to randomly write things about garbage disposals. Then I got really interested in the subject and started to write comparisons of very similar garbage disposals with each other. A lot of my readers find them very useful in making the right buying choice. I hope it helps you too.
