The Waste King Legend 8000 is part of the Garbage disposer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, Garbage disposer models like the Legend 8000 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Speed: We judged each model's speed of grinding beef bones and vegetable scraps. The speed of grind was based on the amount of bone that was ground in one minute of operation.

Fineness: We judged each model's fineness of grinding beef bones and vegetable scraps. The fineness of grind was based on the distribution of particle size after all bones were ground to completion.

Vegetable scraps: For vegetable scraps, whole celery stalks and whole potatoes were used.


HP HP Models with the least powerful, 1/2-hp motor can handle bones and softer waste such as carrots and corn kernels. But if your kitchen waste typically includes tougher stuff, look for a more powerful, 3/4-hp or 1-hp model.
