I purchased the GE GFC520 to replace a larger GE unit that lost a chopper blade. The GFC520 is a lower capacity (smaller chopping chamber) so takes up less space under the sink. It is also quieter than the larger GE model it replaced. It was easy to install, but I had to purchase plumbers putty. It would be easier if a small quantity of putty was included in the package.

Adequate, nothing exciting
1. noise--louder than expected 2. easy to install overall, the nut holding down the bottom plate is difficult to access--too small of an opening around the nut. 3. smaller...Read complete review
1. noise--louder than expected 2. easy to install overall, the nut holding down the bottom plate is difficult to access--too small of an opening around the nut. 3. smaller inlet/throat than the previously installed model could use the previous strainer 4. different mounting--had to remove previous mounting brackets--which I thought were industry standard--at least I have seen the previous mounting brackets on all of the previous disposals that I have worked on. 5. the hole in the cover plate that holds the discharge tube on is too large or the flange on the discharge tube is too small--thus the discharge tube could gap and allow leakage. Added a plastic compression gasket which centered the metal opening and will keep it from leaking. This forced me to install longer bolts, since the ones supplied were not intended to have a gasket under the metal plate. 6. nice size, give a lot more room under the sink 7. space under the bottom plate for the electrical connections is not very generous overall good enough for the price I paid for it.

Comments about GE Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal:
This is wonderful! It does an excellent job quietly, neatly and quickly, which not only saves on electricity, but also on water. I t is certainly self cleaning because I never smell any odor of left over food emanating from the disposal.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good for the price
from Ohio, United States
Works well. No major problems. Clogged up once with potato peals. Power cord had to be purchased seperate, didn't come with it.
Looks nice, but very wimpy
from South Carolina, United States
Replaced an insinkerator with this GE disposal. They were alike in power. Didn't know it would be such a huge difference! The insinkerator was way more powerful. This disposal both sounds wimpy and really can't handle much. It doesn't suck the items down the sink to the disposal area at all. I have to use a spoon or knife to get it down there. Also the opening is much more narrow. I would not install this brand again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Summerville, SC, United States
Purchased new home. Disposal is very loud compared to previous home disposal units.
Easy self install. Not too heavy. Straight forward components.
from Nazareth, PA, United States
This was purchased with my new home and was requesed by me. Great product that does what it needs to do and works great.
Price is right!
from Cleveland, OH, United States
The price was very competitive but the installation process was more difficult than necessary and required pleny of patience.
operates well and is quieter than my last disposer
I installed the disposer myself. When I installed the rubber mount onto the sink flange, I had to use enough pressure to allow the mount ring to move easily up and down a short distance. I was then able to install the disposer while pushing it upward and turning the mount ring to the right. I used a screw driver as a lever to turn the mount ring further to the right to seat the disposer tightly in place. It took a little practice and strength, but it is very sturdy and works very quietly.
Great value and for a great price!
from Grand Rapids, MI, United States
Bought this a couple of days ago to replace one that had been in the house since we moved in 10 years ago. A great buy considering the features, easily could have paid twice as much for the same results...a quieter, sleek looking disposal that was easy to install.
from Buena Vista, CO, United States
I bought this disposer from Lowes, who delivered it to our door. This was easy to install with the instructions GE provided, although it did not have the correct outlet pipe for my double sink. The disposer is quiet yet powerful - Great Appliance!
