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.

Quiet and sturdy

I bought this about 3 months and it has worked fine
from SC, United States
Does the job and is reasonably priced. Lets face it, its a garbage disposal ! not a piece of artwork you hang on the wall. Function and efficiency are the key elements.
Very quite Disposal
Garbage disposals are usually very noisy; however, my wife has commented several times how pleased she is that this unit runs rather quitely compared to previous unit(s). Does the job, so she is real pleased.

I bought this disposal to replace an old one and it works great!
Nice with a caveat
from Oklahoma City, OK, United States
Good news and bad. The good: It is quiet, powerful, and looks good. The bad: It is a disposer only, no cord, no cord hold down, no dishwasher connector. The worst bad is that the sink flange would not unscrew from the support ring. This should be a five second deal. It took over an hour. I used hot water to expand, ice to contract the other side, lubericant to facilitate the unscrewing. Finally, I gave up and put it in my vise and forced it. Of course it broke. I repurposed the broken part with the part from the old disposer. The sink flange was a bit buggered up but it is functional. Did I mention water leaks? If manufacturing would solve these problems it would be a much better disposer.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
