I love my new garbage disposal. I can not believe how quiet it is! I thought something was wrong with it when I ran it the first time.

Great Disposal!
4 Star Review   By lensky on Home Depot - Jun 4, 2013   

I got this to replace an old, rusty garbage disposal that sounded like a jet taking off and vibrated so much that I thought things might fall off my countertops. I considered some cheaper models, but I'm really happy I made the choice to buy this unit. The installation was easy (with the assistance from another person), even for people who don't have much experience with these things. The disposal itself is quiet (sounds like a hum), doesn't vibrate my countertops and does a really great job at disposing of food (as one might hope). It was larger/heavier than I expected (my old unit was super tiny), but it definitely fit under my sink and is smaller than some comparable models I looked at. It was on the expensive side, but the unit itself seems really solid, so I don't wake up at night worrying that it might spring a leak inside of my new cabinets. For me, the extra money is worth the peace of mind. It seems like a quality product that is going to last.

Good quality and value
5 Star Review   By Eric on Home Depot - May 14, 2013   

It works like a charm. It took me a while to remove the old Badger 1 disposer, mostly due to the difficulty of detaching the pipes). However, once I got that done, installation of the new evolution was easy. It's so much better than Badger 1 with respect to both power and noise that I wonder why I didn't replace it earlier. For less than 200 bucks, this is definitely money well spent.

Replaced our 22 year old insinkerater. This model is awesome - -quiet and quick. Have not had the problem of plugging when disposing peelings, a dependable problem with our old system. Definitely recommend this product. Our online experience was flawless, arrived as expected and when expected.

Easier to install than I expected
5 Star Review   By Mark on Home Depot - Apr 30, 2013   

Having never installed a disposal before, I was expecting to get quite aggravated based on my skill level, but I was pleasantly surprised how easy it actually was. This particular unit came highly recommended by our local plumber, and it is quite a powerful, yet quiet disposal.

Very quiet, Great price, Strong motor
5 Star Review   By Customer187 on Home Depot - Apr 27, 2013   

Arirved in 7 days with the free shipping. Went in (as a replacement) in about half an hour. Used the cord from the old unit (a 6 and a half year old 1/4hp Badger). The old unit had a 1 year warranty and lasted 6 and a half years, this one has a 4 year warranty and I expect it to last 12 years (as long as nobody inserts items that should not be inserted). Three times the power of the old unit and super quiet. I can't attest to energy efficiency.... don't think that is an issue with this type of appliance. Very happy with the purchase.

I would not recommend very disappointed
1 Star Review   By Sarnicsim on Home Depot - Apr 21, 2013   

I have never had a waste disposal before and was excited to finally get one in my new kitchen but it has been awful. It clogged pretty much right away and I had to pay a plumber to unclog it. Now I barely let anything go down and it still regularly backs up and I run my dishwasher several times to free it up which sometimes helps. It is way more trouble than it's worth.

The quietest disposal I have ever been around. Be aware that if you can't salvage the electrical cord from your previous disposal that this does not come with cord included. Otherwise, great product.

We got this to replace aging leaking disposal that came with the house 20 yrs ago. It is smaller, quieter, and more powerful. It does not clog up like our old one did all the time. I had to order it on line as it was not carried in the store. It arrived quicklly. We had a professional install it.

Very powerful and quiet. Slow to Drain.
5 Star Review   By HomeBoy2012 on Home Depot - Feb 21, 2013   

I just installed this and it works great! It's very quiet which makes you wonder if it's working, but it certainly is. I'm very happy with this purchase. My only slight complaint is that the sink baffle is not vented enough to let the water drain as fast as I would like and it can be hard to push the food waste into the disposal chamber.

Very Quiet
5 Star Review   By Alain on Home Depot - Jan 27, 2013   

Love it. Shipping was right on when they said it would be here. Installation was easy. I installed it myself. I had an InSinkErator 444 before. It was 7 years old when it finally died. I hope that this one will give me the same amount of years or more. I have no doubt that it will because they make a great product.

5 Star Review   By Sandy on Home Depot - Jan 22, 2013   

Love it - it's super quiet. As it turns out, it's the disposal my plumber would have recommended. Can't say much about the durablility as it's been in only a bit over a week, but my last one was an insinkerator and I never had any problems with it. The only reason I got a new was is due to a total kitchen remodel.

Excellent Quality, Quiet and Compact Design
5 Star Review   By mtmdv3671 on Home Depot - Jan 9, 2013   

Insinkerator makes a good product. This model is smaller than some others they have and the online-only price couldn't be beat. In my case I had to chop the drain line and install new PVC to meet up with the discharge of the garbage disposer but otherwise installation was fairly quick (1/2 hour). Buy a small tub of plumbers putty and a large set of channel-locks if you do not have an existing garbage disposer you are replacing. Otherwise, it is a snap. I used the air-switch (insinkerator) and had a local granite counter-top installation company come by and drill out a hole for me near the sink and the entire setup is flawless.

Great product
5 Star Review   By aj11 on Home Depot - Jan 1, 2013   

We have had this disposal for about 3 weeks now. Great product. I'd say it is worth the extra money. We read a lot of reviews on others that were less expensive and kept seeing "it died in 3 years" with poor ratings. We decided to spend a few extra dollars on this due to it's outstanding reviews and seemingly awesome quality. Would rather spend more upfront on a good machine that lasts 10 + years than have to purchase a new poor quality machine every 3. It is VERY quiet just like everyone says and grinds pretty much anything. Easy installation. We had to get a plumber but just to re-configure the piping under the sink from the new sink we purchased also. Could definitely install yourself if you didn't have to do all that. Good buy, worth your money.

The quietest garbage disposer I have heard.
5 Star Review   By JPS1 on Home Depot - Dec 26, 2012   

This unit was very easy to install and functioned as promised in the advertisements. I replaced a noisy builders model that was no longer working and you can hardly hear this new unit running. Everything fit perfectly and it installed without any leaks in the plumbing the first time. This is the second one of these untis that I have purchased and installed and the first one is six years old, has worked flawless and is still as quiet as the day it was installed.

Quiet Disposal
4 Star Review   By Tony on Home Depot - Dec 25, 2012   

I replaced an InSinkerator badger 7 with this one. It took me maybe 10 minutes to do it. I spent more time taking off the power cord from the old disposal and attaching it to this one (IT DOES NOT COME WITH A POWER CORD). Very quiet and my wife is pleased.

Excellent choice
5 Star Review   By SusieKE on Home Depot - Dec 22, 2012   

I hadn't purchased a garbage disposal in years and went to the reviews prior to purchasing .... I have to admit I am not disappointed with my choice .... it appears to be a great disposal although we haven't used it long. One thing I also appreciate is how quiet it is ... as we have an open concept Great Room and the sink is open to the living room space so this is really nice too. My negative thoughts would be for this price one would think as others comments that the cord would come with it, and my thought is would it have been too much to ask to add the stopper ... one would think it would be a no-brainer and it would just come with but no ... it is an additional purchase should you want to plug you sink and fill it with water. Strange!

Does the job and does it quietly.
4 Star Review   By Mike on Home Depot - Dec 18, 2012   

Overall we are very happy with this unit. Our only complaint is that they do not include a power cord, so you have to purchase that separately or use the old one. Kind of a strange management decision.

super quiet
5 Star Review   By noobhandyman on Home Depot - Dec 18, 2012   

I did not know it was possible to make a garbage disposer this quiet. When I initially turned it on, I thought it was broken as I only heard a light humming sound similar to the disposer being replaced when it wasn't spinning any longer. Others have commented about reliability issues after a few years. I'll be sure to update my review then if I run into issues .

Great upgrade!
4 Star Review   By Grinder on Home Depot - Dec 18, 2012   

Purchased to replace older Badger disposal. Overall installation took about an hour with removing the old unit, removing and installing the electrical cord, and fitting the new plumbing. Would have been faster if I did not have to install the electrical cord. Unit is very quite compared to old disposal! So far pleased with the disposal.

Very quiet
4 Star Review   By Robert on Home Depot - Dec 18, 2012   

It's so quiet that my wife thinks it's not running because the water faucet makes more noise than the disposal. The disposal is mounted on a cast iron porcelain sink. So I think it would be noisier mounted on a thin stainless steel sink. Installation was a challenge, taking me 3 hours, mostly because I didn't read the full directions. I inadvertently reversed the positions of the gaskets; because that was the way the old one was previously installed. After reading the instructions (duh), it fit better. I used a Honda car jack to raise it in place, which worked very well to get the mounting ring twisted on. After 2 days, I ended up replacing all the 30 yr old plastic drain pipes under the twin sink because they had a slow leak under the twist locks. The old seals must have been disturbed during installation. Oh, and I can't believe they don't include a power cord.

Easy Instal & VERY QUIET
5 Star Review   By buggerbill1219 on Home Depot - Dec 18, 2012   

Had to replace old Kenmore disposal....Bought Insinkerator after reading several reviews and am thoroughly pleased. Hardest part about install was removal of the old disposal. Insinkerator is incredibly quiet, Took couple hours to install. Instructions were easy to follow.

Works like it should
4 Star Review   By DMJB on Home Depot - Dec 18, 2012   

The unit was replacing an 8 year old badger. Easy to replace took about an hour. The only difference I have seen is this unit actual vibrates more that the previous unit. Not sure if it is because it has more horsepower 3/4 vs 1/2 or that the discharge tube setup is now a more flexible one then the last. Overall expect to get 8 years of use.

Great Disposal
5 Star Review   By ACSRetired on Home Depot - Dec 15, 2012   

Bought this disposal when we upgraded our kitchen and I was amazed on how quite it is. With our old disposal, you could not hold a conversation with someone standing next to you due how loud it was. This disposal is so quite that you barely notice it is on. It has worked flawlessly since we installed it three months ago. Highly recomended if you want a quite and dependable disposal unit. Wish I had bought it long ago.

Quite
5 Star Review   By Halfpint on Home Depot - Dec 11, 2012   

Very quite, that is a great feature, as our old one you almost had to turn up the sound on the television while it ran. Now I need a quite dishwasher. Anyone know of one? I can't speak on how durable it is b/c we just installed it a week ago. So far so good.

Quiet, powerful, very easy to install
5 Star Review   By Jim1 on Home Depot - Dec 5, 2012   

I purchased this unit to replace a bottom-line unit that started leaking from its interior. Installation was a breeze, although I needed my car's scissor jack to align the new unit. The entire installation took around 30 minutes, from removing the old disposer to leak-testing the new one, including transferring the power cord from old to new. Very quiet, no leaks anywhere. Don't know about its longevity yet of course.

Quiet
5 Star Review   By Lisa on Home Depot - Oct 31, 2012   

Powerful yet compact in size. I am thrilled with the Evolution Compact. Bonus-it is super quiet. This is a replacement for an old, often used for over a decade insinkerator. Additional Bonus-the new model I purchased has a removable sink baffle for easy cleaning! 5 stars and I am a picky customer. Small size let's me retain the valuable storage space under the sink. Easy to install.

This product was defective.
1 Star Review   By carlydog on Home Depot - Oct 31, 2012   

I had this product installed and in less than a month, it stopped working. The re-set button had no tension to reset and I had to have the machine removed. I am pleased with Home Depot's willingness to accept the product without the packaging and credit my account. Service was courteous and prompt.

Great Disposer
5 Star Review   By dpmsts on Home Depot - Oct 21, 2012   

Purchased the Insinkerator Compact model about 3 months ago. Although expensive, we are very happy with it. It replaced a 12 year old Badger model. Here’s my install notes: 1. It took me around 90 minutes total time to install, and I’m fairly handy. 2. Much of the time was spent on removing the cord from the old unit. This was not as easy as I thought it would be due to a plastic insulating ring. 3. I didn’t find the unit too heavy to install without a helper. 4. Since the old unit was also an Insinkerator, the new unit’s mounting ring matched up with the mounting ring already in place under the sink. 5. If you’re installing this and need to connect it to a dishwasher you have to remove a plastic plug. Knocking this plug out required more force than I expected. The unit is much quieter than the old one, almost too quiet. The manual says it will grind fruit pits. This was new to me so I tried it out on a 1 inch peach pit. Munched it effortlessly and pretty quiet as well. I would recommend this unit to friends.

Extremely quiet, great value!
5 Star Review   By Zillbilly on Home Depot - Oct 13, 2012   

I'm very pleased with this unit. It is extremely quiet and efficient. At $166 with free shipping, it is a great value. Installation took about 2 1/2 hours because I was replacing the original disposer that was installed when the house was built in 1990. The mount was so rusted that I couldn't get it off from the bottom so I bent the flange inside the sink up all the way around using vise grip pliers until the whole thing would pass down through the hole. Be careful not to damage the sink using this method. Installing the new unit went much better. I used the shipping box, a thin phone book, and that old calculus book from college that has been sitting on the shelf for years to support the new unit. I had to reroute the drain pipes since the drain on this unit is about 1 1/4" higher than the old one. Overall, everything went very well and I have a new, quiet disposer that doesn't seize up after 30 seconds like the old one did.

In Sink erator Evolution Compact
5 Star Review   By Mike on Home Depot - Oct 3, 2012   

Bought this to replace a Badger 5, 5/8 HP model, that started leaking, from the bottom, after about 3 years of use. Will not buy another Badger. This Unit was easy to install as long as you have the existing mounting ring from your previous Disposal. Just lift the new disposal in place, making sure to have the mounting tab lined up with the slide up ramp and twist the mounting tabs ring until they lock over the ridges on the slide-up ramps. Make sure you use your old power cord as this unit does not come with one. Powered it on and the disposal was very quiet. Lets hope this Disposal last much longer than the previous Badger.

Very quiet
5 Star Review   By neddi on Home Depot - Oct 2, 2012   

I replaced a 12 year old in sinkerator. The new one connected, seamlessly to the old connections. A snap to replace. Took about 30 minutes to remove the old one, wire the new one, hang it, connect the existing drain lines and finished.

Easy to install, quiet, powerful
5 Star Review   By Rita61 on Home Depot - Sep 14, 2012   

It was time to replace our old Badger 5 disposer. I wanted to run to HD and buy one off the shelf but my DH started shopping online and decided he wanted a quieter model with a steel chamber and a longer warranty. We selected this one because it was short enough that I would not be required to reconfigure my cabinet storage baskets, Unfortunately, it was only available online and we would have to wait for a few days for it to arrive. Happily, It arrived 4 days later so my teenage son and I began to install it. Everything required for installation was included in the box except for hand tools and some plumbers putty, We had no trouble understanding the instructions so the removal of the old disposer and the installation of this new model was completed in about an hour. The motor is VERY quiet and I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Product was in stock and has turned out to be a great improvement over the old unit.
5 Star Review   By skymech66 on Home Depot - Sep 12, 2012   

As close to a "Plug and Play" installation as a plumbing project can get. Granted, it is a replacement, not a new install. It wasn't as compact as I had hoped but, it is far quieter than I expected. 'Word to the Wise'...the trim ring and stopper are chrome. So, if you're looking to add this unit to a stainless sink, you may want to pick up the available stainless

5 Star Review   By rj11 on Home Depot - Aug 28, 2012   

Easy to install, took my husband less than 3 hrs by himself. Majority of time was spent on removing old garbage disposal. Didn't need a jack as some of the reviews mentioned. The unit runs so quietly that my husband even forgot it was on once and kept washing the dishes before realizing that he needed to turn it off! The InSinkEratorPower Cord Accessory Kit came in useful and I would definitely recomend getting it with the disposal. The other item you will probably need to buy is a sink flange in whatever finish matches your sink.

Great Disposal
5 Star Review   By Todd on Home Depot - Aug 11, 2012   

My story is not unlike many that have reviewed this product already. I purchased this disposal after my basic Insinkerator model started leaking. It lasted 10 years. It literally took me 20 minutes to install since the mounting ring was the same. Very easy to install. This one is MUCH quieter than the one installed by the builder. Time will tell how it holds up, but it seems to be built a lot better and is backed by a 4 year in home warranty.

This disposal is great! Very powerful and quiet. Would have given 5 stars, but the rubber sound seal doesnt allow food in without pushing it through, even the smallest amounts. But, i understand that is what is making it so quiet.

5 Star Review   By Neilgphoto on Home Depot - Jul 17, 2012   

Upgraded from a badger 5 that was leaking. Took 30 minutes since the mounting collar was the same. I had read peoples reviews about how quiet it is, but I wasn't much impressed over the badger - until..... I threw 3 stalks of raw broccoli in this machine! It disposed of the stalks so effortlessly, that I was convinced they were simply stuck to the sides due to the spinning! After sticking my hand inside to see, they were most certainly gone. I also must say that it did it with no vibration; the old Badger would have not only not disposed of the stalks, but it would have shaken the sink violently! I only hope that this outlasts the last unit

5 Star Review   By cheezeboe on Home Depot - Jul 17, 2012   

overall quite an easy project, just make sure you have a "jack" handy, that made the job go quickly, without one, you will be under the sink for a while, trying to hold the unit in place and trying to tighten the coupling. loosening all the pipes from the elbow to the main drain also helps in lining up all the piping as well. all in all the project took about 30 minutes to complete. now we'll see how long the unit will last!

A month ago I would have rated this product a 5. It is quiet, compact and mighty. But 5 months after the install it stated leaking at the junctions right above the electric box. So we’ll see what type of service we get when I call the internet service line. So stay tuned for another blog entry.

Quiet and an Easy Clean
5 Star Review   By stonehouse on Home Depot - Jul 15, 2012   

I like that the black, rubber drain cover can be removed and cleaned. My old garbage disposal's drain cover became so gross yet I couldn't get it clean. I also like that when the drain cover is off there is a clear view of the interior of the disposal. This way it is easy to determine if something is stuck or it needs cleaning.

So quiet!
5 Star Review   By Bond on Home Depot - Jul 14, 2012   

We replaced an older model and I have had to check several times to see if this is on because it makes so little noise. My only complaint is the rubber around the opening is a little tight and sometimes needs a bit of a nudge, but I'm sure it will loosen with time.

Great Purchase
5 Star Review   By Jojo on Home Depot - Jul 13, 2012   

Like most users, I had an old garbage disposer that finally locked up and needed to be replaced. After reading Consumer Reports and the reviews on Home Depot, I decided to go with this unit mainly based on the rating it received, price, and size. Although my installation took around 2 hours, I had a heck of a time removing the old unit and had to use a saw to cut it out as the previous installer had caulked the threads securing it in place. Once I had the old disposer removed, the installation on this unit was straight forward with the recommended tools, power cord, and plumber's putty. After testing to ensure there were no leaks, I was pleasantly surprised to find how quiet it was when I turned it on. My old garbage disposer would shake the entire counter so bad that the soap would fall into the sink and now you could barely tell it was on! I would highly recommend this disposer, it's been a great purchase!

4 Star Review   By Sam12 on Home Depot - Jul 10, 2012   

Surprisingly quieter than expected. Very satisfied with performance. Worth the higher price, despite my disatisfaction with my previous short lived Badger 5 (3 years). The only thing I don't like is the box doesn't say you need to buy the power cord and locking ring separately. It lists just a few household tools. Had to go back during installation to buy the manufacturers $12 cord/ring.

Easiest install ever
5 Star Review   By Cruiser on Home Depot - Jul 1, 2012   

My 17 year old disposer finally bit the dust. I checked out the reviews on the Home Depot website and compared features and price. We chose the Evolution Compact 3/4 HP Continuous Feed Disposer. It promised to be quieter than the others and promised quick installation. Well, they were right on both counts. Install took 15 minutes (removing the old one and installing the new one) and when I hooked it up, it was sooooo quiet I thought it was jammed up, but it wasn't. It's a little more than what I wanted to pay, but as they say...you get what you pay for!
