InSinkErator SS-100-28 Standard Capacity Commercial Waste Disposer Review
For nearly 100 years, InSinkErator has served as the location where engineering and technology come together to create the perfect solutions for discerning clients who are looking for the best – without compromise.
The InSinkErator SS-100-28 Standard Capacity Commercial Waste Disposer (see today's price) boasts a powerful, 1 HP motor that is more than capable of handling 100+ persons each meal. As with all InSinkErator commercial grade food disposers, buyers can expect this model to deliver superior energy efficiency, quiet operation, and all-around excellent performance. This model is ideal for use in places like assisted living homes and small to medium sized restaurants.
My Story and Experiences
As the proprietor of a small assisted living facility, I have had the InSinkErator SS-100-28 Standard Capacity Commercial Waste Disposer installed in my kitchen for the last 3 years, and I could not be more pleased with its performance. It is asked to grind the waste of 50+ individuals three times a day, and we have not had a single clog or jam thus far.
The induction type motor can reach up to 1725 rotations per minute, and even I can appreciate the fact that it is totally enclosed to protect its innards and the motor from outside moisture. InSinkErator has built in a controlled air flow to cool the motor as it works to prevent it from overheating. Not only does the air flow increase its efficiency, but it also increases its lifespan.
There’s a triple lip seal around the motor that protects it from water damage, and an additional spring-loaded oil seal offers an extra level of protection against moisture and also against grease loss. Personally, I like the fact that it’s got a rubbing mountain above the grinding chamber that eliminates vibration and minimizes the amount of noise it makes. I can talk to my residents while it is running without having to yell.
I bought this model with the standard one year manufacturer’s warranty, but you can purchase an extended warranty if you want too.
When you run your own business (much less an assisted living home), there are so many day to day details to manage, and the last thing you want to worry about is your kitchen appliances failing. InSinkErator is a trusted brand and one that I would highly recommend to any fellow small business owner. Most importantly, with InSinkErator, you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to enjoy quality.
