InSinkErator PRO750 Pro Series Food Waste Disposal Review
The InSinkErator PRO750 Series 3/4 Horsepower Food Waste Disposal featuring Evolution Series Technology is a gem of a garbage disposal. It weighs 19.6 lbs. and has compact dimensions of 10" x 10" x 16.2". Its average water usage is approximately one gallon per day per person, and its average electrical usage is 3 to 4 KWH per year.
Although this disposer is more expensive compared to other units on the market, no other waste disposal unit can match its level of raw power. The InSinkErator PRO750 (see today's price) is very efficient and quiet but has a full one HP motor, and three stage Multigrind technology (an Undercutter Disk, Tri-Action Lug System, and a GrindShear Ring).
The InSinkErator PRO750 is well insulated, has various stainless steel components, Quick-Lock mounting, and a quality steel stopper. It also boasts stainless steel sink flange material and a sensor that automatically increases motor torque if there might be a jam. This unit also features a "Do's and Dont's" card, despite the fact that most owners attest that they're able to throw virtually any type of food waste into it, including rib bones and chicken, without a problem.

My Story and Experiences
OK people, listen up! I just got done buying a garbage disposal for the second time and thought I'd throw a few helpful hints your way. Disclaimer: I ended up buying an InSinkErator PRO750 Pro Series Food Waste Disposal that I love, so these tips are probably going to reflect my bias!
Tip number one - What size horsepower should you get? Your choices are 1/3, 1/2, 3/4, and 1 HP. 1/3 HP is the lowest, and should only be purchased by 1-2 person households that eat mostly vegetables and fruit. 1/2 HP is good for 1-2 people that eat more than the 1/3 HP can handle. 3/4 HP is good for 4 people, and 1 HP is meant for heavy use and large families. My InSinkErator has 3/4 HP, is quiet, and doesn't get jammed easily.
Tip number two - Does the disposer have stainless-steel grinding components? Stainless steel impeller plus grinding parts last longer and will grind particles smaller, which will end any jamming problems. If it doesn't jam on you, it won't clog up your sewage pipes. Full disclosure: Our last garbage disposal - call it Inferior Brand - clogged up right and left, and we had to call in the plumbers - twice! I finally wised up and insisted we order the InSinkErator PRO750 on Amazon Prime. Two days later, it was here and installed, and hasn't clogged up once in 5 months of operation!
Tip number three - How long are you going to be in your current location? If you're only going to be there for a year or two, purchase a garbage disposal that only has a 1 to 2-year warranty. If your roots are firmly in the ground, opt for the InSinkErator PRO750 Pro Series 3/4 HP like I did. We are extremely happy with this product (as if you couldn't tell already)! Anyway, good luck, thumbs up!
