When you purchase this disposal, rest assured that everything you’re going to need is included.  It comes with the popular Insinkerator Quick Lock mounting system to attach it to your sink.  This system uses an easy twist-lock design that reduces the need for tools and cuts install times down to mere minutes.  You don’t need to make any extra trips to the hardware store to install this disposal, because it’s all in the box.

Powerful Motor

When it comes to garbage disposals, more power is always better.  The Premier garbage disposal has a whopping ⅓ horsepower motor to easily chew through tough foods.  Whether you’re getting rid of soft foods or hard ones, this disposal will easily handle anything you throw at it.  It’s also important to note that even with this powerful motor, the disposal unit size is still nice and compact.  The Premier disposal delivers plenty of power so you won’t have any problems.


The Premier Waste Disposer is designed to virtually eliminate any jamming issues and to keep the noise level down.  The continuous feed operation makes sure that foods are pulverized bit by bit, not all at once which can easily jam other disposals.  It also has an ingenious anti-splash baffle at the opening, which keeps food inside the disposal, especially when it’s operating.  The baffle also helps to reduce the noise level of this disposal, so it’s nice and quiet when it’s doing its job.

Grind Chamber and Body

You may have noticed that most disposals are made from either steel or stainless steel parts, and their grind chambers and body are almost always made from these materials.  Metal bodies make for a tough disposal in the short term, but they’re doomed to fail.  All metals rust when exposed to moisture over time, so metal disposals aren’t the best.  The Premier uses a non-metallic grind chamber and body, so the possibility of rusting through just doesn’t exist.  If you want a garbage disposal that’s going to last you for a decade or more, this is a great choice.
