Waste Disposal - Whether you call it a garbage disposer, disposal or grinder, they all do the same thing; grind up kitchen scraps and waste and send it down the kitchen drain. Most people don't spend a lot of time on choosing a disposer, in fact many leave it up to the plumber. However, there are a couple of points worth considering. So don't leave it up to your plumber; pick a model that will do the job well. Take a look at our Garbage Disposer Buying Guide for information to help you make the right choices.

When choosing a garbage disposer, consider the horsepower rating, noise level, warranty and choose between a continuous feed or a batch feed model. Learn all the details in the articles listed below.
