Our old disposal was a 20 year old (approx) similar Kitchenaid batch mode model.It worked well and there is no switch on the wall so we had to replace it with another batch mode mode with a magnetic switch in the stopper. The new one is:- Powerful and very quiet; I can barely hear it running over the sound of the water from the faucet.-Installation was easy in my sink. The instructions indicate that you need to order a special part if you have an exceptionally thick sink where the drain is.- Batch mode style (switch is in the stopper) is very safe and convenient. You can't drop anything in it while it is running and you don't touch a switch on the wall with your wet hands to turn it on.- The stopper design is clever, put it in one way and it plugs the sink. Flip it over and it allows water in and turns on the disposal when you rotate it. But the stopper side had a cavity which fills up with water and if you pull it out quickly you may splash the water on yourself. The switch side has slots for the water to pass through which get clogged up by food debris and are noteasy to rinse out. But it does look like a better design than the old magnetic one that was was nicer to use but rusted out after about 5 years and was $60 to replace.- The cavity is small; about 2/3 the size of the older model so each batch that you grind must not be too big. - The casing is a snapped on plastic cover; [...]The base of the unit is very thin sheet metal so the romex clamp for the cord threads skipped over the sheet metal when I tightened it down.Overall it is very nice to use, and it should be for the price of this high end unit, and Abt's price was the best I could find anywhere.I was a bit dissapointed in Kitchenaid's stopper design and while the interior workings and motor work well and seem well built, I expected a tougher enclosure for a unit at this price.

We purchased early February, as our previous KA model would not "turn on and sometimes would not stop" working. This "new" model does not have the same capacity to accept garbage (have to stuff it down by hand) and the "stopper" will not allow any residue garbage to enter unit while running. The holes are too small. This stopper is made of plastic, while our previous was metal.
We are sorry KA discontinued make our previous model, as it was a 100 times more effective in doing the job. Very disappointed in this "new" model.

    Comments about KitchenAid Batch Feed Garbage Disposal:

    We have had KitchenAid disposers in the past (2 in 43 years) with excellent performance. This model is exceptionally quiet. It is trickier to start. We definitely prefer a magnetic start batch feed model for safety. The rubber flange is a different feature - makes it difficult to retrieve something accidentally dropped in.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Very prompt delivery.

    So much "For the way it's made"

          Comments about KitchenAid Batch Feed Garbage Disposal:

          First off let me say the unit is very quite and has good power.
          The rest all I can say is poor execution.

          I am left disappointed in the magnetic start. It is tough to make in-gauge sometime don't work at all and the stopper don't plug water. So if you wish to fill the sink with water you are going to have to find a stopper that will work. The stopper they do have is made of plastic. Yes PLASTIC... Why would they take one of there premium models($400 range) and cheap out on the stopper. my old one was a different brand 3/4 hp cost 20% of what this one did but came with a chrome stopper and it actually stopped water.
          The good news is I was able to get a chrome off-brand stopper that fits well at my local parts store for like $10 retail. If I want to use the disposer I will have to use the plastic one that trips the magnetic switch and use the new one when I wish to plug the sink.

          All said the unit is subject to a ongoing issue Kitchen Aid has. Premium pricing and cheapening product.
          I understand the need to stay competitive in pricing but a $400 disposer is high up the line and should have the quality trim level to go with it. It's like buying a BMW 7 series with hubcaps. At this price point nobody is concerned if the price needed to be a few dollars higher as long as the product had the correct fit and finish.

                            I just installed this and realized there is s little space in the chamber. Half of what my last kitchen aid had. Then there is a rubber shield like a continuous feed would have that now you have to push food down with your hand or something. Then there's the plastic stopper that you need to flip over to plug the sink, which doesn't work. I can her the still draining.

                            Kitchen aid failed on this one. I really wish I could return this, so unhappy. Want my old one back. Was going to buy a kitchen aid dishwasher this weekend, won't be now.

                                  Worst disposal I've ever used. Not at all quiet. Does not grind bones as I would told it would. Shallow depth flings food that sticks to the underside of the baffle so it has to be cleaned after each use to avoid bacteria growth. Uses a lot of water to completely empty disposal otherwise food just flies around and stays. I've used cheaper, smaller hp disposals that worked better than this one.

                                        Had one installed in my previous home to replace the 20yr old disposer that finally gave up.. What a difference the new features made. Much quieter, grinds faster, and the jam sensor. The magnetic start is a great safety feature especially with children. So impressed with it that I just had one installed in my new home.
