GE 1/3 Horsepower Continuous Feed Garbage Disposer GFC320F

Rating: 3 out of 5
  • Currently 3.0/5.0

I purchased the GE 1/3 Horsepower Continuous Feed garbage disposer, model number GFC320F to replace my old disposer that broke off from the drain and stopped working. This new disposer is a third horsepower and stronger than my old model. I have used it to grind up normal debris from dishes, as well as fruit rinds, eggs, cake and I even occasionally toss half oranges and lemons into the grinder to freshen it. The disposer is listed as being high capacity and I use it without regard to overloading it, so I would say the marketing is true. It weighs eight pounds, which was only of issue when it was being installed. Installation was a challenge and when the seal around the disposer got caked with grime and grease a year after purchasing it, it was equally difficult to reinstall. Some owners consider this a design flaw, but I was eventually able to get it hooked up.

The positive aspects of the disposer, besides being able to load it up with everything from a cleaned out refrigerator is the price. The disposer retails for less than $100 and is one of the best options in its price range. The model comes with a new sink stopper, a great replacement for the grimey, rusted stainless steel option that I got rid of with the old disposer. The only negative is the frustrating installation. Knowing how tough it can be to reinstall, I avoid putting oily or fatty foods down the disposer, just to avoid possible build up and detachment.
