Like disposals by all brands Kenmore garbage disposals too share some common features.

  • All Kenmore garbage disposals use a 3-bolt mount. The good thing about this is the mounting is sturdy and prevents any vibrations while running the disposal.
  • All Kenmore disposals use high-speed motors. This reduces the probability of jams as high-speed blades tend to cut through most possible jams.
  • These disposals do not come with power cords.

While Kenmore disposals may not be as popular as their main competitors their popularity is increasing nonetheless.

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.
