I love the performance of this garbage disposal. It really grinds up the food and is extremely quiet while doing so. Sometimes it is so quiet that I almost can't tell that it is even running. If you want a disposal that you can get rid of your food without a lot of noise this is the product you want to purchase.

WARNING: Kitchen Aid recently changed the design of this disposer. Online documentation shows 6-11/16" from bottom of sink to centerline of water discharge but the new design is 9-1/4". The new disposers have 3" long black plastic extension between the disposer and mounting ring. If your plumbing drain is not low enough (like mine) some of the garbage and water will sit inside the disposer and not drain. Even worse, Kitchen Aid support does not yet have any info about this. Can't use kitchen sink or dishwasher now! This could be the same issue across the entire product line. See attached picture showing the 3" extension

I purchased this product a couple of weeks ago. My old disposal hadn't worked for months. The 3/4 hp is great. It's very quiet and fast. Don't know how I lived without it. It was a good value.

Improved switch design
By Tom A
This unit replaced two similar KitchenAid waste disposals both failed with the same problem. The new units were both installed under KitchenAid warranty. The previous units used a magnetic switch but the new unit has a more positive (mechanical, I believe?) switch. It's too early to see if it is more durable, but keeping fingers crossed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
THESE UNITS ARE LONG LASTING
BOUGHT THIS ONE AS A REPLACEMENT FOR ONE THAT LASTED 22 YEARS. I INSTALLED IT MYSELF. IT REQUIRES SOME UPPER BODY STRENGTH WHILE ON THE FLOOR AND UPSIDE DOWN. WOUND UP USING A SMALL HYDRALIC JACK FOR RAISING IT INTO PLACE.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Worth the money
We purchased the unit on line. It arrived in a timely manner and was easy to install. We like the quiet operation and the speedy removal of waste.

Bought this during a kitchen remodel. A little expensive, but very quiet, and have had no issues in the 2 months it has been in use.

Comments about KitchenAid Red Garbage Disposal:
It was easily installed. It seems to work well - it does a thorough and fast job of grinding and disposing of materials. It is a little noisier than I expected. My expectations were from other reviews - apparently they must have had extremely loud garbage disposals before this one.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was prompt and the product was well-packaged
from Mahwah, NJ
The Kitchenside disposal is quit and efficient.
Great job cleaning up the mess
By A great buy
from Kingsville, MD
I bought KCDS100T thinking that 1-Horsepower may be a bit noisy for but surprising enough it's quite and does a great job cleaning up the mess. I would definitely recommend this disposal.
The quietest disposal I have never heard !!Powerful too.
Very quiet and works quickly
from Warren, Oregon
New replacement for a Kitchenaid disposal we had installed when the house was built. The original was 16 years old and never had a problem. New unit is very quiet and works very quickly.
