How to Pick a Disposer that Suits You

If you haven’t got much time, I have put together a handy comparison table so you can see at a glance which models we have and what features stand out the most. If you have a little more time and don’t want to dive straight in and start looking for the model you think will do the job for you, take some of the following into consideration.

Continuous Feed vs Batch Feed

Most people will opt with a continuous-feed garbage disposal, but if you’re looking for a little more safety the batch-feed models are a better choice.

Grind Stages

Basically, the more grind stages your disposer has, the finer the waste will be when it’s sent to your sewage system or septic tank. Your choice should depend on what type of waste you want to get rid of.


I can feel your eyes light up at this section. Noise is a massive issue for a lot of people, so make sure to check if your desired food waste disposer has sufficient insulation (I usually address this issue in my reviews).

Other Options to Consider

The most important other factors that come to mind are price (obviously), size (especially if you need room for cleaning utensils) and type of waste to get rid of. Again, I usually address these issues in the reviews.
