Garbage disposers Buying Guide

Putting food down the drain is a modern convenience, thanks to a garbage disposer’s ability to grind food small enough so it doesn’t clog your drains.

But some municipalities discourage residential garbage disposers because of inadequate sewer systems or water supplies. In these locales, all food waste has to go in the trash, not down the drain. And even if your community allows garbage disposers, using one may cost you more than you think.

Use our garbage disposer buying guide to explore which features are most important.
