Franke FWDJ75 3/4 HP Continuous Feed Review

Last Updated on

Have you had problems in the past with cheap garbage disposal jamming all the time? One of the best possible models out right now for anti-jamming technology is the Franke FWDJ75 3/4 HP.

To me, it is hard to imagine getting by without a garbage disposal. Cleaning the dishes is the least favorite chore of my household. You will notice, garbage disposals save you quite a bit of dirty work and make cleaning dishes a lot easier than it would otherwise be.

If you are going to replace broken garbage disposal or simply want to upgrade your garbage disposal, you will want to consider all of the options that are available in today’s garbage disposals before you make your choice.

By getting rid of the somewhat old process of using an auto-reverse function, this garbage disposal model uses permanent magnet D/C motors that use induction motor processes to get maximum power functions. Also, thanks to improved sound baffling technology, this product is one of the quietest garbage disposals on the market. Garbage disposals, in general, have many beneficial qualities.

Convenient and Fast

After eating, you need to wash and clean up the dishes, which is not something you want to do after a long day. If you have a garbage disposal installed in your kitchen, cleaning dishes becomes an easy task. You turn on the water and let it run for a minute or so down the drain. Then, drop all your food scraps into the garbage disposal and turn on the switch for the unit. The machine will grind your waste food into tiny pieces. After that, It will flush them down the drain and moves all the way into the sewage system.

Cleaner environment

Generally, without a garbage disposal in your kitchen, you have to throw food leftovers into a trash bag. The leftover food in the trash begins to decompose, and bacteria start to appear. This can bring insects as well as an unpleasant odor.

Less waste to the landfill

Moreover, If you reduce the amount of trash you leave on the curb for the garbage collector, that means there will be less trash buried in a landfill. Saving landfill space is a primary concern and just one of the reasons that recycling is such an important issue.

Protects plumbing

The truth is, it is inevitable to have food scraps in your sink while washing dishes. Without having a garbage disposal installed, the plumbing in your house can get clogged up. When this happens, you have to pay money to have a plumber fix your issue. Those with a garbage disposal can save money yearly because of the lack of plumbing issues. If a garbage disposal does get clogged, it can almost always be cleared by adding running water then turning it on to unclog the drain.

Review Summary

Franke FWDJ75 is one of the underrated garbage disposals. The main reason is, Franke is not as popular as InSinkErator or Waste King is. It comes with updated anti-jamming technology and permanent magnet DC motor. Additionally, the inside wall has anti-bacterial shield technology that can be a savior from the odors. There is a compatible air switch available in the market so no switching hassle. Most importantly, it grinds quietly and easy to install under your kitchen sink. Overall, this disposal is a good unit but a little expensive compared to the other available options right now. Surprisingly, it comes with a 10-year warranty which is great.
