The models you have selected for comparison are very close in features
and price.

Both 1HP...

Insinkerator has stainless steel components and stainless steel
grinding chamber.
Waste King "Corrosion proof grinding chamber of glass filled nylon."

ISE has "..Auto-Reverse Grind System™ helps prevent jams, extends
product life, and provides extra sanitation."

Waste King  "...Stainless Steel Swivel Impellers swivel and retract if
they are jammed so that they return to the grinding position during
revolution, reducing motor overloading and costly jams. Waste King's
stainless steel swivel impellers eliminate the need for reversing
switches and special "de-jamming" wrenches. "

ISE...Doesn't speak about the splash guard.

Waste King   "....Removable splash guard is easy to clean and

ISE...Doesn't speak about grind size.

Waste King  "....Stainless Steel Undercutter Blade located beneath the
grind ring snips fibrous and stringy waste into small particles making
them less likely to clog drain lines."

It seems you will be happy with either of these top of the line
garbage disposals.  Home Depot carries ISE at $183 while the Waste
King is carried more by specialty shops (according to newsgroup
information) at about the same price.  Waste King seems to be a bit
more specialized but the ISE is certainly a fine brand...Waste King
comes with a lifetime guarantee while the ISE appears to be a 7 year

The answer was very well researched for only $2.  I knew a lot of the
information from my own research, but he came up with a few things
that showed he did extensive research.
