Recommended garbage disposers, by Consumer Reports

“Garbage disposers address the often disparate demands of convenience and conservation by grinding up kitchen scraps, especially non-compostable leftovers like meat and poultry or fat, and sending them down the drain to a sewage-treatment plant or septic system for handling, rather than to the landfill for slow decomposition,” says Consumer Reports. “In addition to eliminating the mess, a garbage disposer shifts food waste from your trash can to a wastewater treatment system, discouraging bugs and other pests.”

Here is the Consumer Reports’ selection of recommended garbage disposers. The maximum overall score is 100, and “Best Buy” models offer more value.
