Comparison Guide

Many of you will be visiting this site to carry out initial research into the different models on the market before you make a buying decision.

To help save you time, I’ve compiled this feature and price comparison table that you can sort by any of the columns to help you find the model that best suits your needs.

If you’re looking for the highest rated or the lowest price, the smallest or the most powerful, use this table to quickly find the right model – then read my independent review of the features. To provide background technical information about the different types of model and features, read my quick guide to the pros and cons of Continuous feed vs Batch feed models together with an FAQ on the main features to look out for.

Included in the chart are:

  • Pictures of the Disposals
  • Disposal brand and model
  • Horsepower (hp) – key to the power of the electric motor in the unit (and so its ability to crush and grind food). Find more in our guide to garbage disposal features.
  • Price – these are approximate prices on Amazon.com. These often change based on special offers, promotions, availability and season. To help you, I’ve grouped the pricing on this matrix with $=under $70, $$=$70 to $120, $$$=$120 to $170, $$$$=$170+
  • Rating – the average user rating on Amazon.com which is another great way to see what other buyers think of the product

The waste disposal units on this chart are only the most popular or highly rated disposers available on the market. There are literally hundreds and there’s no way we can list them all.
