The best of the bunch
I've bought over 10 of these, I manage rental propertys and tenants brake stuff all the time; the cheep ones do not last, but I have never had a problem after installing 1 hp Elite. Never a break down, never a jam, never a clogged drain. I have problems all the time with the other brands and the cheep ones. So far zero problems with the 1 hp Elite and the stainless steel keeps it from rusting out, about 50% of the time I replace a disposer it is because the body of the disposer has rusted through, or rusted through the chamber to the motor.

Not Good from the start
While I'm guessing I'm the 1 in 1000 lucky buyer. Mine died 2 weeks after installation. I called the service number on the side (this comes with a hefty warranty) and was told my best bet was to try to return it. I have no box anymore. For an "Elite" appliance to die that quickly is horrible. The support for an "Elite" appliance is horrible. I have had other regular Kenmore disposers, so I'll guess I'm the lottery winner. But 2 weeks?

Good Value for 1hp Disposer

Disposer was louder than what I expected it to be. However it is quieter than the 1/2hp ISE that it replaced. While disappointed by its noise level, the disposer is value priced in comparison with other 1hp disposers and does come with a 10 year warranty. It's only been installed for 1 month, but during that time it has functioned properly. I wish Sears would list the decibel level on its disposers so customers could make an informed decision relative to noise level before purchasing and installing the disposer.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

electric appliance with no cord!

again - it is quite unbelievable to me that Sears would sell this appliance without the required power cord and force the customer to buy one at extra costs!

Extremely Quiet

I purchased the Kenmore Elite Garbage disposal and installed it without any problems. I replaced a 19 year General Electric 1/2 HP disposal. This disposal is so quiet I shined a flashlight into the disposal to verify it was working. The installation was simple. I only had to go out to purchase the plumber's putty. I cut 2 inches off my original drain hose and that was the hardest part of the job. Please read the instructions before installing. I purchased the Kenmore Elite garbage disposal because I truly believe in the Kenmore Elite brand. All of our appliances are Kenmore Elite minus our stove (19 years old) - next stove will be a Kenmore Elite. A 10-year warranty and made in the U.S.A - you have to love it.

Not as quiet as previous Kenmore models

I should have done me research. I bought it because of it's looks...it looks like quality should look. It is much noisier than other Kenmore models I have had that were of course lower end. My last 3/4 HP was a better unit...just not as bling-bling.

Easy installation, works well. Made in U.S. (for now?)

We wanted a durable stainless model. We went with the Elite, Sear's top-o-the-line disposal.

We were glad to see that it was marked "Made in U.S.A."  Will Kenmore continue to keep jobs here in the states? Will consumers care enough to support domestically produced products?

Installation was straight-forward. But if a person is not especially handy with tools or comfortable in an awkward position, it might be a bit tricky without a helper. You really want to make sure it goes in properly so it won't leak.

The disposal is a standard design, enhanced by high-quality stainless body and cutters. It does have some sound insulating features, but with our sink, it didn't seem to make much difference. It's ok though, not louder than our last one even though it is twice as powerful.

We tested it with various kinds of foods and it works fine. The documentation says you should NOT feed it overly fiberous things (artichoke leaves, corn husks, etc.). In my experience (with any disposal) is that fibery strands pass partially chopped through the disposal and can obstruct the drain. So I usually just compost the flower stems and celery stalks.

It's a good product. We're pleased with it.

The Kenmore Elite disposer

The disposer was fairly easy to install and appears to work quite well. It is not as quiet as I expected, but it does seem to do the job efficiently. I like the fact that it has a 10-year warranty.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

We chose the Kenmore Elite for the power and quietness.

We have a small space untder the sink and were worried that the Elite would take up too much room. It fit in nicely. It has worked well and was very quiet. We are very happy with our choice.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
