General Electric (GE) Reviews:
Value and Price
Currently, General Electric offers a single line of garbage disposers, which range in size from 1/3 horsepower to 1 horsepower. Consumers may choose from among corded or non-corded options, and GE produces both continuous feed and batch feed models. Prices for their models range from $71.50 to $247.25 – depending upon from whom the garbage disposer is purchased from.
All of GE’s garbage disposals share the following features, for which they have won much praise:
- Heavy duty, permanent magnetic motors
- Stainless steel grinding components
- Simple installation
- Multiple safety features, like splash guards and manual resets
For the money, the GE ½ HP Continuous Feed Garbage Disposer Non-Corded offers the best grinding power and value; however, for those whom nothing less than the best will do, the GE ¾ HP Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal Non-Corded offers the ideal option.
Reducing Harmful Greenhouse Emissions with GE Garbage Disposals
In recent years, GE has made a concentrated effort to reduce the size of their carbon footprint, and of companies their size, they are among the first to do so. Each consumer who purchases one of their food waste disposer systems is also contributing to the fight for protecting our planet.
In 2007, it was estimated that almost 31.7 million tons of food waste were taken to landfills, and food waste compromised roughly 12.5% of all waste taken to landfills in America. These decomposing food scraps produce harmful methane gas emissions that are 21 times more potent than carbon monoxide. Furthermore, they contribute to the entrapment of heat within the earth’s atmosphere. Although some food waste that is sent to landfills can be incinerated, the process of incineration also produces harmful emissions.
GE believes that, considering the amount of food waste sent to landfills each year, lowering the annual amount of produced waste will consequently save energy costs for cities because it lowers the amount of refuse trucks that are required to transport the waste. Consequently, this lowers overall emissions and energy consumption from unburned fossil fuels. General Electric’s garbage disposals offer a convenient and environmentally conscious method of beginning to obtain this goal.
