Less is more
Brought on recommendation by sale person. Unit is smaller than old unit. No plug or key to free a stuck motor. It came with a ac plug which I had to replace and wire direct.

        I've yet to use the disposal but I needed to replace my last when I noticed a water leak, cracks and rust. But, the install was fairly easy (thanks to many youtube videos). Works from wall switch and now no more leaks. Cool. Oh yeah, I'm a female and I did it myself.

        LOUD!!!
        Selected the Moen unit to replace a 15 year old Kenmore 1 HP disposal. This Moen is the loudest disposal I've ever heard, including commercial disposals. Simply horrible! Of course I didnt know how loud it was until cutting off the inconvenient power cord so I could hardwire the disposal. Now I can't return the darned thing! So frustrated! Lost respect for the Moen brand.

        Hello FoodPro and thank you for the feedback you posted on the Home Depot website. The noise level of the installed disposal will be influenced by installation conditions. Because of this, perceived noise levels will vary. The Silencer Technology on the Moen EX Series 3/4 HP Continuous Feed Space Saving Garbage Disposal is an insulation technology that reduces the sound output during operation. We are sorry that the Moen EX Series 3/4 HP Continuous Feed Space Saving Garbage Disposal did not meet your expectations and we hope you will give us a try again in the future. Should you require installation, technical or warranty assistance, please contact us at 1-800-289-6636. We are available Monday through Friday from 8:00 am – 7:00 pm Eastern Time.

            Cheap
            Maybe I got a bad one, but two? S why did I give this a poor rating. The installation instructions was a book; i thought this was a DIY not a learning experience where I have go read a book under my kitchen sink on installing a garbage disposal. Also for $139 you could put the right putty in the box, may e aboud a 2nd trip to home depot. but the most important part of plumbing is when done it shouldnt leak, this thing leaked. from the poorly designed drain plug that uses no o-rings; how is it supposed to seal

              Easy installation, Disposal is light weight so you can easily hold it up with one hand during installation. Had to hard wire it in instead of using the plug which is no biggie. Had for a couple months now and works great.

              Absolutely Amazing
              I recently purchased and installed the garbe disposal. We bought this home a year ago and have been slowly replacing everything. The new disposal is very quite, and runs smoothly. Installation was fairly easy. Take note on the order you unpackage this product during the disassembly. Then reasemable it in that reverse order. Take pictures!!

                Needed to replace my 18+ year old garbage disposal since it was on its last leg. I choice the Moen EX Series 1-HP Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal with Integrated Lighting for the horse power and the brand name. The unit is more streamlined design and a bit longer than the other brands. Installation was pretty simple. The instructions were straight forward and very simple to read and install. Make sure you purchase plumber putty to put on the sink flange. It comes with a Simple Snap Tool to put on the snap ring. It really makes it simpler to install the snap ring. One issue I had was the way our drain is plumbed I could not position the disposal so the motion detector for the light would point straight forward as recommended. It is probably 30 degrees off so you have to open the right cabinet door to activate the lights. If I open the left it does not active it. The lights are on the side and back of the disposal so even at that angle it still lights up the entire cabinet. When I turned it on, I was surprise how quite it was compared to my old. It grinded very quickly that is good to save on power and water. My old one would take forever. So far, I am very satisfied with the product. It has a 10-year warranty.

                Very Impressed the power of this Moen EX series 1 hp garbage disposal great Idea with the integrated lighting motion sensor that lights up when you open the under counter doors, I like this feature because I like to look under sink every so often to check for any water leaks, Very quite when it's used due to sound deadening insulation, Very Improved quick and easy installation, 10 year warranty

                  Moen EX series 1-HP continuous feed garbage disposal is excellent. The functionality is amazing. The integrated lighting feature is a little flimsy and not really useful. The light works with four AA batteries which Moen includes in the package. I didn't find it useful so I left it off the garbage disposal unit, it was very easy to remove with on screw and two snap on clips. As for the garbage disposal itself the installation was straight forward. It includes all the hardware necessary for installation. Its not bulky and it looks sleek. I'm happy with this garbage disposal and its functionality.

                  Difficult to install, but otherwise quite nice... I replaced a 28-year-old KitchenAid disposer with this Moen. Installation was straightforward until I got to the step where you hold the disposer up against the sink while simultaneously turning the locking ring. I swore at this for more than four hours before I finally got all three of the ring lugs to engage the flange ramps. The problem is the design that has the ring compress the rubber gasket as it pushes against the bottom of the sink. This force means you must simultaneously push up hard on the ring, at all three tab positions, while turning it. Even when I finally got it, I was unable to rotate the ring all the way to where the tabs sit in "detents" on the flange, no matter how much leverage I used. I hope it stays. It didn't help that you had to have the disposer exactly centered, with nothing to guide you. The KitchenAid it replaced had a different gasket design that self-centered and didn't push back on the ring. It baffles me that Moen calls out the mount design as easing installation, as I found it did exactly the opposite. (By the way, I discovered later that Home Depot sells some tools specifically designed to make disposer installs easier, though I don't think they would have helped me.) I used a scissor jack to hold the disposer up while I struggled with the locking ring. Moen does include a nifty tool for easing installation of the snap ring that keeps the flange from dropping off the sink, but that's never been a difficult part of the job for me. Ok, now that it's installed, how does it work? Just fine. This is the 1HP model (as was the old KA) and it makes short work of whatever you toss at it. A usefully stiff rubber guard is supplied, as is a drain stopper. Noise level is moderate - the old KA was quieter, but I've heard worse. An unusual feature of the EX series is the "integrated lighting". A motion sensor triggers when you open the cabinet doors, and a series of LEDs on the back side illuminate for 30 seconds or so. The ring with the sensor and lights can be rotated - you want the sensor facing the doors, which makes the lights illuminate the back of the cabinet - perhaps not a bad choice. Four AA batteries are supplied for the lights.

                  It was easy to install. Feels solid. I am concerned, initially, about a sound it makes upon startup. When I flip it on it makes a metallic clanking sound, almost like a gear is loose and makes connection with metal as it starts spinning. I'm evaluating it for awhile and may return it if it continues.

                    What impressed me first about this Moen EX75c 3/4 HP Garbage Disposal was how light weight it is compared to older disposals I've installed. The motor portion is enclosed in an attractive black plastic shell that may be one reason for the lighter weight of this disposal. The instructions are clear and well-illustrated. Installation is aided by the special little snap ring tool that's designed to keep the snap ring open while you're installing it to the upper mounting ring under the sink drain hole. This a lot handier than trying to hold the snap ring open with a pair of pliers while holding the mounting ring in place with your other hand. Since this house has never had a garbage disposal before, I'm dealing with a totally new installation. That means that, although there's an electrical outlet under my kitchen sink, it has no switch to turn the disposal on and off. I'll have to figure out a place to mount a switch and then wire it into the outlet. Also, I have an RO water filtration system installed under the sink that I'll have to work around when installing the disposal. Other than those issues, installation looks pretty straight forward and I hope to get it installed next week after a trip to town for some needed electrical supplies. Finally, this disposal comes with a 7 year limited warranty that makes it an even better value.

                    You don’t realize how nice a garbage disposal is until you don’t have one and this Moen EX series is a nice and needed upgrade to our older one. The Moen disposal is 50% quieter,grinds much better and comes with a pre-installed power cord that can be easily removed if necessary, which is what I needed to do. Although quieter, it still makes noise like almost any grinder but is still better than our prior one. It was a simpler installation than I realized and had it completed in about 90 mins. The instructions were easy to follow and whether you use the enclosed instructions,look online or need to call,all the bases are covered. It has a simple snap tool that quickly secures the mounting assembly. You can hook it up to a dishwasher by simply removing a plug and hook up the dishwasher hose. It has a powerful 1/2 hp motor with 2600 rpm. I also like the compact size which gives you a bit more needed space under the sink. This is another simple and excellent upgrade that can be accomplished in a short time and won’t break the bank. Plus it has the MOEN name and reputation behind it. Overall,very satisfied and should last for many,many years.

                    I replaced a 20 year old 1/2 HP disposal with this one and my first reaction was the size! This is much smaller and sits up much higher in the cabinet giving you a lot more storage space. Install was typical for a garbage disposal, but the ring clip holder made it a lot easier! The motor is much quieter than my old one and it seems to be more powerful also. It was able to chew up big chunks of ice in a matter of a couple seconds. The drain ring and drain stop are very nice and sturdy with nice gaskets to keep the water in the sink, the rubber flaps that keep food from flying out are removable for washing which is nice! Overall it has worked great and I'm glad I got some cabinet space back!

                    My current disposal was rather old, losing power, had a bent arm and was becoming increasingly hard to keep clean so figured it was time to upgrade. I decided to move up from a 1/2 HP to a 3/4 HP and I think it was worth it. Installation was a breeze! seeming as how I already had a disposal installed, I was able to use the existing sink mount which made the install only take 5 minutes! Granted, I was kind of bummed not using the shiny, new, Moan logo sink mount but the effort to replace the current mount was rather large. Not to mention the other side of the sink would not have had a matching drain. I removed the plumbing from both the disposal and second drain. I took this opportunity to clean out the pipes and traps (they were rather nasty). To remove the old disposal, simply take a large screwdriver and insert it into the collar then pull so that it spin counterclockwise. Be ready to catch it once loose! Installing the new disposal was easy, just do the removal steps but in reverse. If you have a dishwasher, be sure to pull the plug out before installing (makes life easier). The new disposal is quiet and powerful. I am definitely happy with the upgrade and would recommend this to anyone searching for a reliable, well made disposal.

                    I used this garbage disposal to replace a 20 year old one that was making a lot of noise. This one was substantially quieter than the one it replaced. It was easy to replace. I could have re-used the bracket/drain assembly that was already on the sink from the old garbage disposal-- even though it was a different brand. However, I went ahead and took it out and put in the Moen bracket/drain that it came with because it looks shiny and new. I recommend this product.

                    Top of the line garbage disposal. This disposal is truely above the rest. The plug makes easy work of the electrical work. Normal sound quality expected from a newer disposal. We haven’t had any issues of this not being able to dispose of food remnants. Almost Looks too stylish to be hidden under the sink. Moen is always our family’s go to brand when buying anything for plumbing.
