  • “There’s a Beast Under My Sink!” A Medieval Fairy Tale

    May 30, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fast; effective; loads of power. Accepts foodstuffs that would give other disposals ulcers.
    Cons: Installation could be tricky for the inexperienced.

    Summary: Within our castle, underneath the stainless steel double-sink, lived a dinosaur. He lived on scraps of leftover food I tossed down the sink, thus easing my life in the kitchen. He understood his duty was to eat well and often, and our family fed him ... read more

  • Same story; it leaks.

    Apr 20, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: It is powerful enough for my needs and it is not noisy.
    Cons: Way too leak prone for a plumbing appliance.

    Summary: I have had this insinkerator for probably six years but it was replaced a couple of years ago due to rust in the motor chamber causing it to sieze up. Now the replacement unit is leaking. Insinkerator is okay about replacing faulty units but there are ... read more

  • Can leak due to metallic housing corroding

    Dec 10, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The unit is certainly powerful, relatively quiet, and easy to install.
    Cons: Food left sitting in the grinding chamber may cause corrosion and a leak.

    Summary: As a property manager responsible for dozens of apartment units, I want long lasting disposals as installation cost is not insignificant. Until they went out of production, I installed Insinkerator 333's. The 333's are very durable. Since about ... read more

    Cons: Poor quality base of unit, only a 4 year warranty.

    Summary: The unit has worked as advetised; however, very week materials in the base of the disposer.  it appears this is a continued flaw.  Installed 6 years ago and just started leaking from the base.  I'm replacing it with a Waste King, 3/4 hp, ... read more

  • Through with the InSinkErator Junk

    Jan 27, 2011 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Worked pretty well until the piece of junk corrodes and starts leaking or falls apart.
    Cons: Overpriced for the low quality.  Engineered to last only until the warranty has expired. 

    Summary: If this is what ISE considers heavy duty, I would hate to see what they consider light or regular duty.  I swear, I'll never own another piece of garbage made by ISE.  In the 17 years I've been in my current home, I've had 4 of these ... read more

    Pros: Looks nice from the outside.
    Cons: Is made to fail from internal corrosion. For shame, In-Sink-erator!

    Summary: Started leaking from side. Took it apart and was apalled at what it is made of. Stainless looks nice from above, but the starinless grinding disk has a non stainless mount? The stainless grinding ring lookded great, but the housing that it is mounted in ... read more

    Pros: seemed to work for 10 yearsworked well never thought about it
    Cons: Died with motor humnot sure the companys commitment to quality

    Summary: My unit began acting erraticly last week and has just died. IT hums but the motor does not run. Tried clearing it with the clearing tool but no luck. I bought the house 2 years ago and I think the unit was installed in 1999 so about 10 years of use. Big ... read more

  • Good warranty, honest company

    Rated Show
    Pros: Good warranty, no leaks, prompt customer service
    Cons: early electrical failure

    Summary: We bought our model 444-5 in 2004 with a 4-year warranty. After 3.5 years it stopped working due some electrical problem, which is too short for comfort. Prior to that it always operated just fine and never leaked.  We called the service number and ... read more

  • You better believe it leaks

    Pros: Works really well, until one day in the not-too-distant future...
    Cons: Save your warranty, because you will need it.

    Summary: I'm sure my 444 is less than 4 years old, but the receipt is long gone. The motor is corroded, and just hums now. I was lucky to have a plastic container underneath the disposal, so the leak didn't ruin my floor or cabinets, as many others ... read more

  • It Leaks!

    Pros: Other than the leak (destroyed some things stored under the sink), the device ran well.
    Cons: Known defect.  Company not sympathetic.  Do not buy.

    Summary: 3 months after the warranty expired, my InSinkErator 444 started leaking from underneath the plastic cover shield.  This is a hole in the body of the device, not a gasket or joint leak.  Judging by the online comments, this is a ... read more

    Pros: Powerful motor, fairly quiet
    Cons: Poor design, leaks into motor housing, short product life

    Summary: I purchased the In Sink Erator 444-5 approx. 2 1/2 years ago and already the unit has failed. I have my own construction company so I have seen many garbage disposals. The unit is as easy as any others to install. I turn the unit on and it just hums. The ... read more

    Pros: Powerful and does a good job.
    Cons: Poorly designed if expected to last more than the 4 year warranty.

    Summary: Have had our 444 for 6 years and it has performed it's job as expected except for the occasional mystery leaks on the floor of the cabinet. It's been getingworse.... shoulda been a signal. It seized up the other day and tripped the thermal switch. ... read more

  • It is a leaker stay away!

    Apr 23, 2008 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Worked well when it worked
    Cons: Leaks after a short while, housing corrodes easily and leaks into the motor housing.

    Summary: Yep same thing here. I bought it 4 and a half years ago and of course it has a 4 year warranty. I think it is obvious that they made a bunch of lemons from all of the reviews I have seen and the forums filled with people like me with broken 444s. I ... read more

    Pros: Grinds well
    Cons: Leak prone, little noisey

    Summary: Well seems like the 444 is a leaker. Mine just started leaking this week. I too thought it was the gasket between the dispoal and the drain in the sink. It is leaking in the housing of the unit. Unfortunataley its out of warranty. Time to head to HD ... read more

    Pros: Effective; noise is not bad; grinds solid food well.
    Cons: After 2 years, it's now useless.

    Summary: Our plumber recommended and installed the 444 on a new sink/cabinet installation, and for a while it worked well. It's fairly quiet and effectively grinds food to small bits. Unfortunately, after two years it began to leak. At first, I noticed only a ... read more

  • Ruined by rubber gasket

    Feb 12, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Powerful
    Cons: I have to stick my hand in the thing to get food down the hole.

    Summary: OK, how much design finesse does it take to realize that you shouldn't have the gasket flaps oriented upward? I am constantly having to push stuff down through the flaps, and the sink is always backing up until I stick my hand in the hole to move the ... read more

    Pros: quiet and dependable.
    Cons: leaks after 2 years! --perhaps just a bad unit, only time will tell.

    Summary: This bad boy is a real leaker. Installed it myself after purchase from a big box. After 2 years of moderate use it is now leaking! Well, yes it leaked, in fairness however ISE was very helpful in sending a new unit (old was still under warranty) FAST. ... read more

    Cons: disapointed with the housing, it cracks & leaks!

    Summary: I installed a new 444 4 years ago when I remodeled my kitchen. I am a professional remodeling contractor here in Texas, and chose this unit because we used them on some of our jobs, and the price was what we wanted. Today I had to remove the unit ... read more
