I had an other brand before this that had a larger motor, however after reading reviews and discovering the expense and lack of longevity of that model currently, I chose GE. This is my first GE disposal in my lifetime--including my parent's homes. My Father, a former plumbing contractor, suggested this was a good brand when I asked him.
This is a perfect size--we do not put a lot of junk down our disposer so are careful. No problems, self installed,and works like a charm. I am sticking with GE. thanks!
