The smallest sized garbage disposals will come with a horsepower of between 1/3 and 1/2. These are generally better for the smaller household that doesn’t have a great deal of organic waste produced in the kitchen. And if you’re looking to grind up difficult waste such as citrus peels or small bones, these units will probably not suit your needs.
The biggest plus of these smaller disposers is they take up less space under your kitchen sink. Why not take a look at the Waste King L-2600 first, it is considered to be one of the best units of this size on the market.
