Just FYI based upon reviews there seems to be a lot of plastic is in this model. Additionally, the grinding components are made of galvanized steel instead of stainless. There is also a reference that the ring/flange that will be visible at the bottom of your sink is not removable and is very shiny with large "Waste King" lettering. I am going to keep looking at other disposals for these personal reasons but thought I'd share these points for others.
yea I removed my completely and just use a strainer
The people saying their garbage disposal caused blockages either don't know how to use one properly or have one so weak as to be useless. For example, the one posted here is only 1/2 horsepower... that's not enough. 3/4 hp is a minimum, and a full horsepower is preferred. I've had a 1 hp insinkerator that's worked great for over a decade, we put everything down it (including things they say not to like pistachio shells) and it works flawlessly and has never clogged a single time.

Quote from blahbleh :
My household tried our best not to dispose any food waste down the drain and not use the waste disposal. But sometimes the drain is still stuck on its own and we have to briefly run the waste disposal for 1-2 seconds to clear the drain. So I thought we would always need the waste disposal at least to clear the drain when it is stuck every 3 weeks or so. But then I realized that it's the waste disposal that caused the drain to be stuck. So I had the waste disposal removed completely and haven't experienced any blockage for multiple years so far.

I have the 1 HP model. The ring/flange starts out shiny,but it gets scratched up in a good way. After a few months I could not tell the difference between the ring and the stainless sink.

I bought this 1hp Legend version in 2012 at my previous home. It worked great for the 8 years we lived there and never got stuck/bound. Very heavy duty, lifetime warranty and stainless steel grinder.

Personal preference- but over the years I used 1/2 hp, 3/4 hp and finally settled at 1.25 hp from Costco. Anything less than 1 hp does get clogged (like my previous 3/4 hp). Worse thing is when it gets stuck and clogged, water went back to dishwasher. What an ugly mess!! Costco one is good and strong. And is usually cheaper than $100!

Bought this in a pinch. Glad they got rid of the 1/3 HP. I'm sure this works well. They have a name for quality.

This is not true. Its more likely an installation issue, like the dishwasher tube not being suspended properly, or with the drain coming from the wall being too low.
