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).’
