I bought this disposal to replace another Kenmore model that stopped working. That was fine, since the other one was reasonably old. But, when we purchased the previous one, we were sold on it because the fitting for the sink drain was now going to be universal for Kenmore disposals, making installation of a new one a breeze. Well, that is not the problem this time! I came here first and read all the reviews, and saw that so many people talked about how easy it was to install. Well, I beg to differ. The problem is that the outlet hole is not the same size as it was on the previous model, so none of the existing plumbing works with this new disposal! My husband says it is different by about 1/4 of an inch, but it could be a mile and still have the same result. So despite my husband being very handy around the house, we are having a plumber come to install it. I am, as you can imagine, pretty annoyed.
Quite, powerful, fast. easy to use , easy to install, chews up large chunks of: Food, peelings, husks, rinds, bones, eggshells,corn shucks ,okra, pineapple husks, cherry pits and Peach seeds, all disappear with ease. I'd recommend it to anyone looking to replace a 1/2 horse model. Chose the 3/4 Horse Kenmore and you'll be amazed at the difference.
This product works great. it's not very loud which is a bonus when my children are asleep. It clears the sink and drain fast and efficient. It doesn't make a clanking noise when turned on like my old one. Sounds smooth. I love the feature of the warranty included in the purchase price. I have piece of mind knowing that i can call and have a sears technician come to my house to fix it any time that I need it done. I highly recommend this garbage disposal.
The disposal replaces a simlar Sears model that was going on its 14 year ,but I decided to replace because of kitcehn remodeling. The Sears brand has been reliable for me. This item does the job well and the noise level is low. Hope this item last just as long or longer as the past model.
The disposer is a MUST for me in the kitchen. I bought this disposer when my old one quit mainly because it has a stainless steel interior which will help control odors . I also like the expected life span of the item for the price. Quieter than the old disposal I had for years.
I am so happy with my new Kenmore waste Disposer! I needed to replace my old one half hp disposer. After reviewing multiple disposers I selected the Kenmore 3/4 hp disposer. Installation was very easy. This disposer makes waste items disappear quickly and much more quietly. I just love my Kenmore Waste Disposer.
Item was fairly easy to install, had a different footprint that required us to change our some of the plumbing but was doable. Noise level is acceptable and so far has worked without any problems whatsoever. Best this is having the Sears support behind the product.
Similar models elsewhere run from the same $190 price to $250, and none have the same 7 year warranty. Everything you need comes in the box or can be taken off of the old unit when replacing it (the power cord, if needed, as an example) and it will mount right up to an insinkerator mount since it's basically an insinkerator disposal that says Kenmore. Because it's a bit bigger than the badger 5 disposal it replaced,I did have to shorten the drain pipe a bit, and in doing so I had to replace a gasket when I reassembled the drain pipe. But it was a piece that cost less than a dollar at the hardware store, so whatever. It is a bit loud when it runs without food to chew up. I think it will quiet up as it breaks in, and I like the sound anyways. It has so much power that i can feel it turn on, and it chews through everything I've fed it so far without even breaking a sweat. The main benefit is the all stainless internals....that's why i bought it.
The disposer is quieter and more powerful than my older disposer which I had to replace as a result of leaking seal. I also like the stainless cap for the sink. I really looks nice and will stay cleaner looking than the old black rubber cap. I had Sears install the item cheaper than a plumber would and the installers did a great job and the scheduling process was easy part of my online order. Picked the disposer up at my local Paint & Hardware store. Convenient and successful on line purchase.
I purchased this product mainly because of the 7-year warranty. After installing it, however, I am very impressed with the product. Installation was a snap, the parts are much higher quality than the leaky one I replaced, and it's very quiet. The only issue I had was it is larger diameter than our old one, so I had to adjust the drain pipe position a bit. Easy with the way my plumbing was arranged, but could require a little more effort with some pipe arrangements.
It is quiet, but not as quiet as I expected. It was easy to install, and works well. Directions are clear and simple. If you go by the online picture, you would think it's auto reverse, it's not. That pic is not the 60581 model in fact, it is 60554. Read the specs. They look alike, but they are different. Nevertheless, I'm very satisfied with the purchase.

First one bought had a defect in the outlet. Sears provided another without a problem. But this one has a poorly attached shroud that vibrates severely. The rotating parts are not balanced very well, contributing to the objectionable roughness. This is a replacement for a similar Kenmore model that worked well for more than 15 years. I'd ask for a replacement but expect it would be no different than this one. Very displeased!
