Our Review:

The WasteMaid 1780 is our best selling food waste disposer. Classed as a 'Mid-Duty Model' it will be comfortably suited in the average size home.

The main advantage of the 1780 model is the larger size grind chamber and Full Sound Insulation. In basic terms, it is quieter and can handle more volume of food waste than the 1580 or 1680.

It is supplied with a 2 Year UK Warranty and as with all WasteMaid models has a lifetime guarantee against failure due to corrosion.

In addition there is also a removable splashguard, which allows for easy cleaning. If you need a replacement splashguard can be purchased from us - click here


The Universal Plumbing Kit can help in installation (see below). It has standard waste fittings and can be used with any waste disposer. If in doubt to whether you need one, we always suggest to think about the cost of your plumber leaving the job to buy one or you having to re-arrange a second visit.
