Moen Brings Never-Before-Seen Innovation to the Garbage Disposal with New Motion-Activated Light


North Olmsted, Ohio… Moen, the #1 faucet brand in North America, has introduced the first-ever motion-activated lighted garbage disposal. The brand’s newest garbage disposal is equipped with movement-sensing technology to illuminate storage space under the kitchen sink when the cupboard door is opened.

The EXL100c model, available exclusively at The Home Depot stores and, offers maximum visibility into the cabinet with enhanced features, such as:

  • Six LED lights which activate when triggered by cabinet door movement
  • A 75-lumen output which illuminates the cupboard, making it easy to see under the sink (75 lumens is comparable to the light provided by 75 birthday candles)
  • A positionable sensor which adapts to any installation
  • A front facing battery compartment which allows for quick replacement when needed

“The area under the kitchen sink often can feel like an abyss of forgotten products, with lack of light making it difficult to see and find what you’ve stored inside,” said Chris Nealon, senior product manager, disposals and sinks, Moen. “But now, just like the lights in your refrigerator and oven, the motion-activated lighted garbage disposal will illuminate the space around the appliance, so that struggling to see under the sink becomes a thing of the past.”

Offering even more convenience to the kitchen, the EXL100c garbage disposal has a powerful 1 HP engine, which provides professional grade grinding to tackle the toughest food scraps.

To make it simple for homeowners to add this hard-working tool to their kitchens, the lighted disposal contains Fast Track technology for easy installation, which features:

  • Universal Xpress Mount, which fits all Moen and most existing three-bolt garbage disposal mounting assemblies**
  • Simple Snap Tool to quickly secure the mounting assembly
  • An easy open dishwasher inlet that allows for an easy connection, no additional tools required
  • A removable power cord for optional hardwiring

All Moen disposals also feature VORTEX permanent magnet motor technology, which quickly and powerfully grinds food scraps, allowing users to spend more time at the dinner table and less time at the sink. The VORTEX permanent magnet motor also provides fast revolutions per minute (RPM) which can help to reduce jamming, while a continuous feed means the disposal continues to grind as long as power is on. Plus, more food down the disposal means less in the landfill.

In addition, Moen’s SoundSHIELD insulation on the EX Series units is designed to help deaden disposal sound levels while you grind food waste.

Moen provides the same level of customer service to consumers purchasing its garbage disposals as it does the rest of its products, which provides additional peace-of-mind for both the installer and consumer. Trained Moen representatives are available to answer questions or troubleshoot any problems that may arise.  Additionally, all Moen disposals are backed by professional in-home service and Moen’s best-in-class Limited Warranty. This means both the replacement disposal and related installation services are typically covered at no charge to the consumer. See terms for full details***.
