    Re: Insinkerator Disposer Changes

    I can't stand Waste King disposers anymore. Now back 25 or more years ago when they were not part of some greedy money hog, they made very good products.

    As for Insinkerator, the models they make just for big box stores are not the same as what you'll see on their web site or at a good plumbing supply house. Put them side by side and you'll see differences in them fast.

    This big box special models game is with all kinds of products and from every brand out there. If you want thousands of a given model companies will make them for you as long as you are OK with special model numbers. Maytag did this with clothes washers, dish washers and clothes dryers. The ones from Wards, Sears, Best Buy and Circuit City were not the same machines that the smaller sales & service dealers sold. Maytag was fast to admit this if asked. I found this out when looking around. The models at the local sales & service dealer were far better made and had much nicer features. The warranty was longer and better too.

      Aside from the ability to make it cheaper, using separate model #s for the same product also purposefully prevents price matching because even if someone sells the same thing cheaper it is a different model #.

        So very true on the price matching. It looks the same and seems the same but it's not an exact match so store A doesn't have to price match store B.

        This special branding or special models prevents someone from returning things to the wrong place. Let's say you buy an item at store A and also at store B because you wanted more of them than store A had in stock. You find one of them is defective and forgot which store it came from. If you attempt to return it to the wrong store even though you have your receipts, KABOOM happens to you. Then you have to take it to the other store where it in fact came from. The big stores really watch out for themselves. Some even have hidden special branding marks on items they know about but the consumer has no idea about them.
