Our Review:

The WasteMaid 'Elite' 1580 is the entry level economy model in the range and a replacement for the previous model 058. It is suitable for light to medium use for a couple or single person household. If your cupboard space below the sink is restricted the 1580's compact size will help.

Although the 1580 is a low price model it still boasts stainless steel grinding components which will not corrode and as with all WasteMaid models has a lifetime guarantee against failure due to corrosion.

In addition there is also a removable splashguard, which allows for easy cleaning. If you need a replacement splashguard can be purchased from us - click here


The Universal Plumbing Kit can help in installation (see Owner Manual / Warranty tab). It has standard waste fittings and can be used with any waste disposer. If in doubt as to whether you need one, we always suggest to think about the cost of your plumber leaving the job to buy one or you having to re-arrange a second visit.
