Costco Titan Premium Food Waste Disposer review and comments, T-1060
Costco Titan Premium Food Waste Disposal
The Costco Titan food waste disposer has to be the cheapest made disposer on the planet.
I didn't know they could use so much plastic in something that was supposed to grind up food waste.
One big problem I saw when troubleshooting a problem with one, was the small diameter of the dishwasher inlet. It was so small, that it backed up water onto the kitchen counter through the air gap.
Any disposer sold at a home center would be better than this, and for less money.
Now that I've seen one, I would never install one for a customer.
A much better disposer would be a Insinkerator Badger five,
Or if you want a better one, the Insinkerator Pro Essential.
Yes, that's what you are looking at.
Very much plastic on the Costco Titan.
If you want to see contrasting reviews, check out the TITIAN PREMIUM T-1060. It seems that some people are happy that it powers on, and then there are those that removed them after a few months when they lost their new car smell.
Plastic flanges to the sink
I NEVER install anything that has that black plastic mounting flange to the kitchen sink...
they are nothing but trouble and will eventually leak
or vibrate loose....
I have installed a couple of them with SILICONE
instead of plumbers putty and won the battle
the mounting flange will tighten down well if you use SILICONE
but it is never comming off again
I guess .......to hell with the next guy that has to fool with it.....
I tell them to take them back and
I offer them a ISE unit or tell them to go to
Sears (which is made by ISE)
Titian Premium T-1060 garbage disposal
Costco sells a garbage disposal called the TITIAN PREMIUM T-1060. Reading reviews on Costco's site, there are as many (12) who absolutely love it and as many (12) who absolutely hate it. It has a 10 yr warranty and is currently on sale for $79.99.
Looking for a professional opinion on this product.
I'm about to start construction on a new home. The subcontractor for my plumbing uses BADGER garbage disposals est. $100. Is not familiar with the Titian brand.
