Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Canada Jack Quietly efficient
This food disposal unit is so much quieter than our old one. At first I would have to look and see if it was really done.

This is the 5th or 6th waste disposal unit we have had, 10th home. First, we have had units of differing power we knew from experience one wants a 1 horse unit. Having said that, the Kitchenaid unit is by far the best we have ever had. I love the magnetic switch/stopper and the grinding power is superb!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DisposerDave Runs quietly, instructions not complete
Install had a glitch in that the rubber safety collar was not referenced in the instructions. Apparently it is to be just laid in the drain to prevent things accidently falling in. Very quiet in operation, impressed my daughter who has a noisy insinkerator

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry Self installed batch feed disposal
The disposer came with everything necessary to install in its package. Although the model I was replacing was the same make it wasn't the same size. Some creative plumbing attachments made it possible to hook up using the old piping. The old disposal was just a little larger therefore I used a flex fit attachment to hook it up. All in all the only real difficulty was elevating it under the sink enough to start the connection.

I just installed this and realized there is s little space in the chamber. Half of what my last kitchen aid had. Then there is a rubber shield like a continuous feed would have that now you have to push food down with your hand or something. Then there's the plastic stopper that you need to flip over to plug the sink, which doesn't work. I can her the still draining. Kitchen aid failed on this one. I really wish I could return this, so unhappy. Want my old one back. Was going to buy a kitchen aid dishwasher this weekend, won't be now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TPY 2587 QUIET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This 100t Batch feed disposer was installed in Dec2014 and it is amazing how QUIET this unit is ! Even when grinding chicken bones( which normally is loud ) the unit is especially quiet & fast! very pleased with the operation and batch feed performance of this Kitchenaid Disposer! Much improved over older Kitchenaid Disposers!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AC guy So much "For the way it's made"
First off let me say the unit is very quite and has good power. The rest all I can say is poor execution. I am left disappointed in the magnetic start. It is tough to make in-gauge sometime don't work at all and the stopper don't plug water. So if you wish to fill the sink with water you are going to have to find a stopper that will work. The stopper they do have is made of plastic. Yes PLASTIC... Why would they take one of there premium models($400 range) and cheap out on the stopper. my old one was a different brand 3/4 hp cost 20% of what this one did but came with a chrome stopper and it actually stopped water. The good news is I was able to get a chrome off-brand stopper that fits well at my local parts store for like $10 retail. If I want to use the disposer I will have to use the plastic one that trips the magnetic switch and use the new one when I wish to plug the sink. All said the unit is subject to a ongoing issue Kitchen Aid has. Premium pricing and cheapening product. I understand the need to stay competitive in pricing but a $400 disposer is high up the line and should have the quality trim level to go with it. It's like buying a BMW 7 series with hubcaps. At this price point nobody is concerned if the price needed to be a few dollars higher as long as the product had the correct fit and finish.
