Ever reliable

"I purchased this to replace an existing unit that had lasted over 10 years.
My parents have always had an In-sinkerator so it is a familiar appliance to me, I guess the may be on their 3rd in 40 years.
When I bought my property there was one already installed, but rusted up and jammed, so I replaced that with another model 45 over 10 years ago. I am replacing this one because the grinding plate had become rusted up and the hammers jammed (they will over time if you don't use it regularly - or "maintain" it by grinding some ice cubes or lemons regularly)"

"This unit was to replace an expelair waste disposal unit that was 28 years old!.
It was easy to fit and works just as well as the old one.
I have given 5 stars for each rating but as it's only been used for a few weeks reliability is unknown.
If it lasts as long as the old one it will deserve 10 stars.

"Not being a plumber, I really didn't fancy installing this product. However, if you have a good look at the instructions for assembly you can't go wrong! Works well and is quiet. great price from Screwfix as usual ( £25 cheaper than anywhere else. Customer very pleased."

Good value
19 May 2010
By Philip

"Just bought and fitted this unit for a customer, once I got the old one out it was easy to fit.
This unit will turn on when you plug it in and you have to turn it off at the socket when finished grinding. It does not turn on when you run the tap. An optional air switch is available that can be mounted on the worktop.
I had to use the waste oulet from the old unit as this one comes with an elbow and the setup required a straight one."

Lost appetite
16 Sep 2012
By adbase

"I have had this unit fitted just about two years although maybe just less. While it used to munch its way through anything (chicken carcasses, etc) it now seems to have lost its appetite. So where things like mere potatoes peeling were once almost puréed they now get only chomped into much larger pieces which clog up the waste pipe with ease.
There would seem to be no way to replace just the grinding elements which is a bit rubbish.
"
