Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Great product. Easy DIY project.

Has1 1/1/2022

It was a great DIY project!! Was easy and well guided. The diaposer works smoothly and efficiently. I literally had to spend more time to remove my old unit (from another brand) than installing the new unit. The product looks smaller than my old unit. But this unit is way more smooth and powerful in operation.

Easy install!

Darrel010 12/6/2021

I upgraded my 1/3 hp garbage disposal to a 1/2 hp model. As they were both made by GE, the old one plugged right in! A little research on the wiring chart and I put in my very first garbage disposal in about an hour (learning as I went and working in a little tight space).

Quiet

Skn20 8/20/2021

When moving to our new home a disposal wasnt even considered a necessity but after noticing how quiet and efficient it is, i now feel its one kitchen appliance i couldnt do without! A great way to stay green and recycle foodscraps to condense less trash. I love my GE disposal!

Good overall, quiet, easy install, but short life

A_GE_user 6/19/2021

This is an overall good disposal. Very easy to install, quiet and never clogged. My understanding was disposals last 8+ years on average. However, a little after two years it started leaking from the bottom (through the nut that holds the bottom cover in place). It seems like an internal gasket or seal failed. This disposal was not used heavily, so I was very disappointed that it failed so soon. But I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt and replaced it with the same disposal to avoid disturbing the pipe work. Will see how the new one turns out.

Garbage disposal

Realchance 6/2/2021

I am very hands on, this was not an easy install. Gasket and quick disconnect installation directions need better instruction. Also, Had to rearrange all plumbing. Replaced older ge disposer. Thought it was going to be a direct replacement-no. Otherwise. Unit is light and quiet. Doesn't take up alot of space under sink which is a plus . Last one lasted 20 years. Hope this one lasts as well.

GE product fan for life 5/22/2021

I had the same type GE disposal previously, but after over 10 years, it needed replacing. That's why I chose the same one again. Always did the job.

Replaced GFC520V

Jm217 3/20/2021

Orig. GFC520V still works, but the grinding tabs both came out of their pressed fit on top of unit. Unit lasted 4 years. But otherwise happy with this product, that's why I replaced with same unit.

I bought one for my previous house too

Msacademy 10/9/2020

Great! It is very powerful. We had this unit for ten years in our previous house. When we bought our current house, my wife wanted that GE unit installed in it too, even though the Existing brand was working fine. One of the great features is that you can take the rubber drain filter out of the drain and clean it and place it back in. If I ever buy another house, I will buy it again!!!! You should too!

Replaced a dead 525 disposal

Johnnysd1701 6/27/2020

It was difficult to mount this replacement. Also, it came without a power cord. Make sure to include the "power cord kit". I didn't and worked through removing the power cord from the failed unit.

Works well and easy to install.

Bsohn 6/2/2020

Our old disposal worked for many years but when it started to go in and out, we decided to buy the same model and try installing it ourselves, as it has a quick release. The part was relatively inexpensive, and it came with all necessary components for me to replace the unit myself in under an hour. Easy peasy and works great!
