A good garbage disposal is an excellent tool to have in the kitchen. At Sam’s Club®, we stock a number of different commercial garbage disposals and standard garbage disposals to help meet your particular needs. Best of all, you can shop our inventory with members-only pricing.
The first consideration when shopping for any garbage disposal is the horsepower of the unit. A standard garbage disposal usually has about 1/2 horsepower, which is ideal for small households. However, if you have a larger household, or will be putting the unit through its paces constantly, consider bumping up to 3/4 horsepower. The added power will help ensure that the extra waste is disposed of properly, and the stronger motor will last longer under higher loads.
Many premier garbage disposals carry some sort of antibacterial shield with them, to help deal with odors. This handy feature is useful in a kitchen that sees a lot of activity.
Garbage disposals are easy to install now, because most kitchen sinks readily accept them or the adapters to simply twist the units on and off. Even if you aren’t installing it yourself, look for units that have the power cord already attached. This will save you, or your installer, a little extra time when it comes to hooking everything up.
