My old Waste King Special Edition 3/4 HP had this problem: when activated it started turning so rapidly that all water and filth accumulated in it gets thrown up into the air (splash guard did not help). It only happens in the first moment after activation – after that it worked OK.

Now it finally died and I am looking for a replacement. I do not want to get the same problem again.

Does anybody know what could have caused that problem? Was it common for that model? I know that Waste King has high speed – 2700 RPMs, while Insinkerator only 1725. May be the high speed causes it? But then it should affect all Waste King models? Should I buy a different brand or different HP? What is your experience?
