The reviews for the Waste King L-2600 Legend Series 1/2 HP Garbage Disposal are fantastic with over 92% of the people giving it a 4 star or 5 star rating. This is a powerful garbage disposal. One of the reviewers said that right after they installed it they decided to test it out by filling the grinding chamber to capacity with some tough items that their old disposal couldn’t handle and that the Waste King L-2600 chewed through this stuff in about 10 seconds.
A lot of people also commented on the ease of installation. There are a few simple instructions to follow and if you are able to turn a screw driver and know how to read, installation will not be a problem. People also commented on the excellent customer service provided by Waste King. One of the reviewers stated that they emailed the company with a couple of questions and got a response within a couple of hours.
This garbage disposal is fairly quiet but not as ultra quiet as some of the more expensive models. Having said that, I don’t think you’ll be disturbing your neighbors by disposing of your table scraps. It’s a relatively quiet, powerful, durable, and affordable addition to any kitchen. The fact that it’s backed by a 5 year mechanical warranty and a lifetime warranty against corrosion should give you confidense that this disposer is built to last and it certainly gets our reccomendation.
