Common Features of All Waste King Garbage Disposals
Waste King garbage disposals, since made by the same manufacturer, come with a lot of common features. These features make Waste King one of the main players in the kitchen appliance industry.
Here are those features;
Most Waste King disposals run at high speeds. The lowest powered ones run at 1925RPM while all others including 1/2HP and more run at speeds in the range 2600-2800 RPM. Most of the disposals by other brands run at lower RPMs below 2000. The advantage of having a high-speed motor is that it tends to jam less. The high speed produces enough torque to cut through jams so they don’t need any fancy technologies like Auto-reverse.
Small & lightweight Permanent magnet motor
Waste King garbage disposals come with permanent magnet type motors while some other brands use induction motors. These types of motors are lightweight and smaller in size. They are also far more efficient than the latter.
Since these disposals use high-speed motors the grinding of food waste is done at twice the speed of most competitors.
Uses Less Water
Faster grinding means less water. Over a long-term, a Waste King garbage disposal can save a lot on your water bill.
Less energy consumption
Permanent magnet type motors consume less energy than induction type motors. This is because they do not require electricity to power their magnets.
Power cord installed
All Waste King garbage disposals come with a power cord preinstalled. This makes installation much easier.
Usually cheaper than the competition
Waste King disposers are comparably cheaper than their competition, prices fluctuate at times but generally, it is so.
Their products usually have longer warranties than their main competitor InSinkErator. Here is their own comparison guide.
The reset button on the front
They all have their rest button on the front which is easier to spot.
All Waste King garbage disposals are septic safe for properly sized septic tanks.
Stainless steel cutters
The cutters on the turntable of all their disposals are made of Stainless Steel which is corrosion resistant.
Removable splash guards
Their splash guards are removable allowing easy access while cleaning the disposal. Some of their competitors aren’t so.
