“Excellent disposal capabilities at a cut-rate price.”
The Waste King L-3300 gets the nod for best budget garbage disposal. I am excited about this disposal because it offers a very capable garbage disposal at a very low price. If you are looking to get a disposal but don’t want to bother with all the frills, the L-3300 Legend is a great mid- to high-range product. I like the modest decrease in power from the one horsepower L-8000 unit from Waste King. While the L-3300 Legend may lack some extra power, many users I know are very positive about what it can handle in the way of food grinding.
I especially like the modest price tag on this disposal. When considering food disposals, people usually use performance and noise reduction as good indicators as to how capable one might be. The 3/4 horsepower Waste King L-3300 Legend may not be the most powerful disposal on the market, but it comes in a close second with an estimated 2700 rpm output and a 3/4 horsepower motor. You can find plenty of 3/4 horsepower motors from other companies, and it is in no way a low horsepower rating for a garbage disposal.
Don’t be too concerned that you will get an inferior product if you don’t pay top dollar for this disposal. If you don’t want to pay double for advanced options, you can settle for a quality, standard food disposal and still make a great upgrade to your kitchen.
