The Waste King 3200 Garbage Disposal by the numbers:
Waste King Legend 3200 ¾ HP Garbage Disposal

  • The L-3200 uses the EZ-Mount system, which seems on the whole to work fine but some users prefer the older standard 3-Bolt Mount (if you prefer this and want 0.75 HP motor, then pick the Waste King 9940)
  • 2,914 users out of 3,992 (73%) rate this unit 5 stars – above average
  • Only 199 users out of 3,992 (5%) rate this unit 1 star – just a fraction over average
  • 0.75 HP 2,700 RPM motor is powerful enough – it really will be fine for couples to all but the biggest families
  • As with all Waste Kings, comes with a power cord and plug for easy ‘plug-and-play’
  • Not a massive housing, so does leave space under you sink!
  • Slightly smaller motor, so is quieter than the bigger 1 HP units
  • The warranty is 8 years, which is really good compared to InSinkErator
  • Waste King customer care has good feedback, better than InSinkErator
  • Hovering around $100, so it is good value

The Takeaway – ‘The Waste King L-9980 1HP Garbage Disposal – for some reason, not as popular as the Waste King L-8000, but identical apart from a 3-Bolt Mount it uses.

Feedback, Opinion and Review of the Waste King L-1001 ½ HP Garbage Disposal

The Takeaway – ‘The Waste King L-1001 ½ HP Garbage Disposal – Perfect slimline low-cost option ($50) for small spaces and small households. Lots of good reviews, but only 2 year warranty. For a family, go for a larger motor and longer warranty (eg. our Best Buys: L-8000 or Evolution Compact).’

Feedback, Opinion and Review of the Waste King L-111 1/3 HP Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal

The Takeaway – ‘The Waste King L-111 1/3 HP Garbage Disposal – if you want silence in your home, then give this a shot. But, to be honest, this is the only recommendation I can give this unit – it’s cheap, needs more power, and needs a longer warranty. Pay a bit extra, and get something that should last longer.’
