Whirlpool GC2000XE 1/2 HP Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal Review

Whirlpool GC2000 garbage disposal The GC2000XE garbage disposal unit is backed by a one-year limited manufacturer’s guarantee – which sounds good but pales compared to the lifetime warranties offered by Waste King and Insinkerator for their respective top-end models: you pay a premium for a very different warranty. Regardless, this model is well-reviewed by customers and has a rating of 4.2 out of 5 at Amazon

Let’s move to this unit’s features: for a smaller family looking for simple and budget food waste disposer, then this Whirlpool model could be the right unit to fit under your kitchen sink.

If you’re replacing an existing Whirlpool unit, then fitting is really easy – simply unclip the old and replace with the new device: it should take you no more than half an hour, tops. If you’re changing from one manufacturer to another, for example from an Insinkerator to a Whirlpool, then you will probably need to swap the flange under the sink, which will take a little longer. In either case, this unit simply plugs into the wall socket, so there are no problems with the electrical side of the installation.

Features of the Whirlpool GC2000XE

  • The Whirlpool GC2000XE has a 0.5 hp (horsepower) electric motor (compare this with others in our unique comparison chart). As a comparison, a typical basic garbage disposal is fitted with a relatively low-power 0.3 hp motor, and a standard large-family unit would have a power rating of 0.75 hp or more.
  • The unit has stainless steel internal grinding components that ensure the mechanism will last without rusting or degrading. Compare this with the less durable galvanized steel used in cheaper units
  • Existing users comment that this is a quiet disposer, which could be down to its lower power rather than special noise insulation or nylon housing that is used in bigger, more expensive (and quieter) models.
  • The Whirlpool motor spins the internal grinding wheels at over 1700 rpm (revolutions per minute) which is good enough to crush and grind most food waste.
  • Lastly, Whirlpool provides a one-year warranty, helping protect you if the unit is faulty in this time.


  • 6 inch diameter (at its widest point)
  • 16 inch height
