The Waste King L-3300 is one of the most popular garbage disposals. It is quiet, efficient and offers excellent value for your money. Although not as powerful as the most expensive models, it has no problems handling all normal food waste.
The L-3300 waste disposer is very easy to install, no special skills or tools are needed but a little bit of plumber’s putty may be useful.
The 0.75 HP Waste King L-3300 is quiet but can make a clicking sound when it starts. Like all other Waste King Legend Series garbage disposals, the L-3300 has a grinding chamber made of corrosion proof glass filled polyester and swivel impellers made of stainless steel. This means that rust will not be a problem. The splash guard is removable which makes it easy to clean.
The Waste King L-3300 comes with a 10-year in-home service warranty and a lifetime corrosion warranty. Note that a 36 inch power cord is included with the garbage disposal. It uses the Waste King EZ-Mount system. If you prefer the 3-Bolt Sink Mount, have a look at the Waste King L-9940 or L-9950. The Waste King L-3300 is safe to use with properly sized septic tanks.

A few don’t like the click that can sometimes be heard when the L-3300 starts but most people were not disturbed by that. Apart from the clicking sound, there were no complaints from a larger number of customers.
Most customers had something to say similar to the following two quotes:
“Works flawlessly and was easier to install than my dead insinkerator was to remove. Much quieter than what it replaced and seems to grind the food faster too. Great product.”
“I figured I’d try out the Waste King since it seemed to have the features of the Insinkerators (and power) and was a much better value. I think the equivalent insinkerator was about twice as much. Install was very easy, and it’s not really any louder than the insinkerator I had in my old house, and it chews up everything.”
