5 Star Review   By DIYDBB on Home Depot - Jun 12, 2013   

I hooked it up, turned on the water and flipped the switch. This unit is so quiet, I wasn't sure it came on. It is about as easy to install as a garbage disposal could be. I would have had it running in about five minutes if I didn't decide to replace to flange from the old unit. It actually took longer to pull the old unit and flange than it did to install this unit.

Wow! So quiet I had to turn off the water to see if it was running!
5 Star Review   By Mark on Home Depot - Jun 11, 2013   

I just replaced our Waste King disposal (due to repeated leaks from the "Easy Mount" fitting) with the InSinkErator Excel. Frankly, I wondered if it was worth the higher price -- until I turned it on for the first time. The water was running, and I couldn't hear it! I had to turn the water off to make sure it was actually working. When you grind food the Excel is also much quieter than the Waste King, and noticeably quieter than any disposal I have ever used. The standard 3-bolt mount is easy to install. One tip: pick up a round 3/8" cable clamp for the power cord connection on the bottom; the Excel doesn't come with one.

Exceeded my Expectations
5 Star Review   By GregJ on Home Depot - Apr 29, 2013   

I picked this product after reading many other reviews. My last Insinkerator 555ss lasted 15 years but was noisy and could not adequately grind many food products. I tested the Excel using banana peels and fruit rinds. Hardly a sound and not a trace of residue left in the chamber. So far seems to grind food products as advertised and is very, very quiet. I like the fact that the rubber sink baffle is easily removable for replacement and allows for better access to the inside of the disposal. I am guessing that the manufacturer made the rubber baffle so stiff for safety reasons as to prevent debris from flying back out of this powerful 1.0hp disposal given the fact you can grind chicken bones. However, the baffle acts like a stopper and backs up water in the sink when rinsing dishes. This is such a problem for my wife that she removes the baffle when not using the disposal. Probably not a good idea from a safety standpoint. Baffle design is OK but opening needs to be a little more flexible.

High horsepower yet extremely quiet
5 Star Review   By Greg on Home Depot - Apr 2, 2013   

We love it. Okay that's weird to say about a garbage disposal, but it was easy to install, is extremely quiet and has a lot of horsepower. Obviously not the least expensive you can buy, but possibly the most for the money.

Worth every penny. The Rolls Royce of disposals.
5 Star Review   By MiamiCondoOwner2013 on Home Depot - Feb 17, 2013   

I live in a small condo. The kitchen is open-plan to the living room. When I run this disposal, which I do at least once daily, it is so quiet that I can continue a conversation with someone in the other room without either of us raising our voice. They're usually not aware I am using the disposal. If I'm watching the TV in the LR from the kitchen with the disposal going at full blast, I don't miss a word. And oh yes, it does everything you want a disposal to do. Just really quietly... I know it's pricey, but on a day-in, day-out basis, I think this is the best investment I made in my brand-new kitchen. Almost-Silence is golden, compared to every other ear-splitting disposal I have used before.

Very quite, eats anything I throw at it.
5 Star Review   By H2OuUp2 on Home Depot - Feb 16, 2013   

If installed correctly, this is a very very quite garbage disposal. If you are hearing noise, make sure you have all the rubber baffles in place, and the sink baffle is place right side up. The unit doesn't come with a power cord so if it's a new install be sure to get one. If it's a replacement you can just use the cord from the old disposal. One thing to remember, this unit is longer and larger in diameter than your old one so make sure you measure first. Installation was very easy (if you are unsure check out some of the videos that will walk you through installing one). If you are replacing the old one look at where the screws are holding the mounting ring on. try to place them so that when you hang your disposal you only have to twist a quarter of a turn, and if your old unit was an InSinkErator then aligning the rings with the old will just make it that much easier. Now the new unit will have a rubber seal that sticks up about 1/2" above the lower mounting ring which is connected to the disposal. This helps with vibration and noise, but makes it just a bit more difficult to connect the disposal to the under sink mounting ring, but if you hold the disposal level give it a steady push upwards and turn at the same time you will be able to attach it easily. Now, i put potatoes, carrots, avocados, and even bones down, it. What was unheard of from other disposals, is NO PROBLEM with this one. It chewed through them like it was nothing (I even tried the pit of the avocado with great results). So far it has done everything it has promised to do. So is it really as quite as they say? YES! It is quite! I can actually carry on a conversation on the phone with it running. The water is louder than the disposal. This disposal may be a little higher than others, but you don't have to worry about what you put down the disposal, because it has three grinding stages, and sensors that sense a jam and gives you 500% more torque when needed,and will automatically shut off if the motor were to begin to overheat. With the stainless steel insides, and the 7 year warranty I think the few extra dollars are money well spent.

Very nice product, easy to install.
4 Star Review   By TimPro on Home Depot - Jan 29, 2013   

Top of the line product for home depot, at least by price; however one would hope it was complete. Missing was a power cord and universal adapter for the dish washer hose. Returning to the store, there was a nice display of each of these items sold seperately. This was across the isle from the disposal, so it was not easily recognized at the time of purchase. I would have preferred paying a little more to receive the entire kit as one.

A bit pricy but works great
4 Star Review   By John on Home Depot - Dec 18, 2012   

My wife likes the disposal which is the main requirement. Installation was straight forward. Unit is quiet, but not quite as quiet as I had expected based on other reviews. I did not like the way the electrical cord entered the disposal when I wired it up, so i added a clamp on the base of the disposal to hold the cord firmly in place where it enters the disposal.

5 Star Review   By Maven on Home Depot - Aug 21, 2012   

This unit is everything it promised to be. It is amazingly quiet, even when doing some real grinding. You hardly know it is on. It was as easy to install as any garbage disposal is. We have been using int for about six weeks and it is great. Expensive, but well worth it. The unit is heavy, but given the motor size, etc., not surprising.

4 Star Review   By Shawn on Home Depot - Jul 17, 2012   

We had to upgrade our Garbage because the one we had kept clogging the sink. We decided to go with the more expensive one made with stainless steel that reverses direction if needed. I just did not want to have to go through having a disposal that clogged up-nasty. This thing is great: quiet, efficient, strong (you can put bones in it), and my husband had an easy time installing it. So far so good. Thanks.

Evolution Excel 1 HP garbage disposal
5 Star Review   By Pinkwolf48 on Home Depot - Jun 20, 2012   

Had my plumber install it, he was very impressed! It is very heavy but I have an old kitchen with real wood cabinets n solid cast iron sink. It is quick starting but considerably quiet. Welcomed change. Remember that the power cord is separate. Just installed it, I pray it lasts a long time!

5 Star Review   By AMBB on Home Depot - May 15, 2012   

This is the quietest disposal I have ever had. You don't even know it is running. My husband thinks it's too quiet, if that's possible. It makes him think it is not working. It seems to be grinding well and should last, being all stainless inside & out. The price is very high, more than double the regular Insinkerators. We'll see if you get what you pay for.

5 Star Review   By HappyInIndiana on Home Depot - Jan 24, 2012   

Standard install, but it's pretty amazing how quite product is compared to other disposals we've owned. The quality of this device is easily apparent. We've had it installed for only 30 days, or so. But it hasn't struggled grinding anything we've thrown at it. My sense is that it's just going to work...for many years (as demonstrated by the strong manufactures in-house warranty).

Excellent garbage disposal
5 Star Review   By jes58 on Home Depot - Jan 17, 2012   

This garbage disposal is extremely quiet. I cannot state how long the disposal will last since I have only had it installed for about one month. My previous disposal was an InSinkErator and it lasted 22 years, hopefully this disposal will last that long.

A super-quiet disposer
5 Star Review   By Springsoak on Home Depot - Jan 17, 2012   

Bought this to replace the contractor-grade Insinkerator disposer that came with our new home when we bought it in 1999. The replacement was due to our purchasing a new sink, and not wanting to retain the 13-year old (but still working fine) original disposer. This Excel is just as it's advertised - super quiet and very efficient in grinding food. It's so quiet that the plumber was not sure when he first activated it that it was working. The ads for the Excel say that you can carry on a normal conversation while its running - we believe you can carry on a whispered conversation while it's running! The Excel's quietness and super grinding capability make us quite happy that we spent the bit extra to purchase this model.

Excellent Disposal - Easy to install
5 Star Review   By TDSmith on Home Depot - Sep 27, 2011   

Have had good luck with Insinkerator products for many years, so when we needed a new disposal, was predisposed to this brand. Did research and got great reviews on this model. Installed it very quickly. (Many others have noted that no cord is provided. Our install was to a switch - not to a socket - so was able to use existing wiring. Check this on yours prior to buying a cord - you may not need one!). This thing is as quiet as everyone says. Highly recommend, although it has a high price.

Incredibly quiet
5 Star Review   By TomatHome on Home Depot - Sep 27, 2011   

Almost can not hear it running! (Unlike my previous model). Very easy to self install. Not difficult at all to set in place and turn the locking mount bracket. Fittings and clamps all fit snugly with no LEAKS. Easy install, about 15 min including new insinkerator gaskets, etc. to existing drain pipes. Would have preferred to have a plug to the power supply, but connecting the Black and White wiring with ground was easy enough.

5 Star Review   By IHop on Home Depot - Sep 20, 2011   

My 3/4 HP, 5 yr. warranty "InSinkErator" lasted 13 years, so I had no problem investing a little more for this 1 HP unit. It performs as advertised. Very quite in the stainless steel sink.

This product is fantastic, bordering on the magnificent
5 Star Review   By Wally on Home Depot - Sep 20, 2011   

The product lives up to its two promises of silent operation and thorough grinding. It is super quiet. I can hardly hear it when it is grinding food scraps. It does a great job of grinding and will very likely prevent future difficulties with pipe stoppage, which I have experienced in the past. That in itself will save on plumbing bills. The seven year warranty and In Home service is very impressive. InSinkErator: certainly one of the great and wonderful things to come out of Racine, Wisconsin among things such things as Danish Kringle, J.I. Case tractors, Horlicks malt, and Johnson and Johnson medical supplies.

Excellent product!
5 Star Review   By bettycrocker1 on Home Depot - Sep 13, 2011   

Although this model inSinkErator garbage disposal is expensive and worth every penny and worth the investment. It is quiet and has a heavy duty motor. Our last disposal from this company lasted twenty years in our family home. We are people who cook every night and the garbage disposal truly gets a work out.

Works well. Quiet. Better design than old one, which also worked well.
5 Star Review   By Happybuyer on Home Depot - Sep 6, 2011   

Only issue is that design is different than old model. Since this one was shorter, we needed additional pipes to attach it to existing plumbing. Also, old one was controlled through a button inside the machine, which often got stuck. The new one works with a switch, which is much better, but we needed to set up a panel to plug it in. Once my husband installed it, we have been very satisfied. It is an excellent product.

Quiet and Works Well
5 Star Review   By Littleton on Home Depot - Jul 27, 2011   

The old InSinkErator lasted 27 years until it failed to grind and so I had no reservations about buying this model. We are not disappointed, It is quietly doing its job and does not complain.

5 Star Review   By HDshopper on Home Depot - Jul 13, 2011   

My kitchen is close to the family room where the TV is, when I read the other reviews stating that this unit is quiet, I decided to try this unit out. Better than expected. This unit is so quiet, sometimes I couldn't even tell if it's running. My refrigerator makes more noise than this. I had put in some big pieces of items in this unit and no problem so far. :)

So Quiet and So Powerful
5 Star Review   By Ginny on Home Depot - May 18, 2011   

Everyone who has listened to this disposal cannot believe how quiet it is. It is amazing that it can grind so well and be so quiet.

Oh so quiet and no vibration in sink
5 Star Review   By Rabbies on Home Depot - May 15, 2011   

Easy quick install, instructions were all clear and easy to follow. Don't forget to purchase a power cord. This unit does not come with one. This was not a problem as I had read previous reviews. My Evolution Excel is utterly amazing in how quiet it is. No vibration carried through to my Granite counter tops or in the stainless steel sink. This is the unit to buy. You should shop for the best price. 7 years in home guarantee. I love Home Depot!

Better than what we had...
4 Star Review   By SoCalKathryn on Home Depot - Apr 30, 2011   

This 1 hp is better than our old 1/2 hp that died. But I am bit disappointed in how long it takes to grind something like lemon or lime peels. No way I would try putting in small bones like the literature says!

Excellent Garbage Disposer
5 Star Review   By AJJL on Home Depot - Mar 23, 2011   

Believe me, this is THE garbage disposer to buy! It is VERY powerful, and extremely quiet. You will not be disappointed. For whatever it is worth, my plumber told me that Insinkerator garbage disposers are the easiest ones to install. They are also very reliable.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it
5 Star Review   By LauraNJ on Home Depot - Dec 4, 2010   

I've never had a garbage disposer before so I don't have anything to compare it to but I have to say that I love having one. It works great, is really quiet and it such a convenience to have. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a disposer.

Excellent buy
5 Star Review   By JAGinMS on Home Depot - Nov 13, 2010   

The Evolution Excel is definitely worth the extra cost. It was easy to install and it is so quiet I didn't think it was working. It does an excellent job. Never been so glad to have my old disposer go out and have to be replaced. Now I show everyone that comes for a visit. They are also surprised how quiet it is. 100% satisfied!!!

Excellent Addition
5 Star Review   By Hav2Hav on Home Depot - Oct 3, 2010   

An Excellent addition to the kitchen. This disposal is so quiet compared to other brands. Easy to install. Worth the pretty penny. Its nice to have a conversation during a party without disposal being center of attention. Not one complaint yet.

Good choice
5 Star Review   By nickaloo on Home Depot - Sep 3, 2010   

I researched numerous brands of disposals and although this one was somewhat expensive, it seemed to be worth the price. So I paid a little more than I originally wanted to pay but so far I have no regrets. Installation was relatively easy. It is the quietest disposal I've ever heard. I haven't really put it to the test yet as I haven't put anything down the drain that would be more difficult to grind like bones. I'll do that in the future and see how it holds up but so far I am very pleased

Great Disposer
5 Star Review   By WBBEAB on Home Depot - Aug 7, 2010   

Everything about the new garbage disposal seems great so far. It is unbelievably quiet. You hardly know it is turned on. There is no vibration. Now if it lasts for thirty two years like the one it replaced it would be fabulous.

Evolution Excel Garbage Disposer
5 Star Review   By golddust on Home Depot - May 28, 2010   

So far so good is pretty much my comment at this time. The new disposer has performed well and it is the quietest that I have ever seen or rather heard. You can barely hear it humming when in operation. It has successfully ground up everything that I have put in it so far. The instructions say that it can grind up small bones. I have not tested this feature but I have put peelings from vegetables in it that I usually would not put in a garbage disposer and with great success! Like I said, so far so good. Keep up the good work Insinkerator!

Awesome
5 Star Review   By mansebot on Home Depot - May 1, 2010   

Finally replaced the old garbage disposal after 15 years. The old one was so loud it felt like an earthquake every time you turned it on. The new one - LOVE IT!!! It is so quiet, it even has three different grinding levels, you can be sure that nothing will go into your plumbing to plug it up. Love it soooo much, sometimes I turn it on just to listen and make sure it is running. A great product and installation was easy. Would highly recommend it to everyone.

Well worth the money
5 Star Review   By 3489ut3498 on Home Depot - Dec 27, 2009   

This is the finest garbage disposal i've ever used. Installation was easy with just simple tools required. It is super quiet and there is almost no vibrations at all. I haven't had the chance to run anything really though through it but I have all confidence in it. And it was a pleasant surprise to find out that it was made in the U.S.A.

Evolution Excel Food Waste Disposer
5 Star Review   By Kahn on Home Depot - Nov 21, 2009   

Just installed it. I had a 60th Anniversary, 3/4 hp model that I installed 8 years ago. It had served us faithfully until a couple of weeks ago when the motor finally burned out. Before that we had gone through 3 1/4 hp models that each died within a year. I had thought that the 60th Anniversary model was great, quiet and dependable. Installing the Evolution was easy, the fittings were pretty much the same, so no bad surprises there. What amased me though was how quiet this one is. You'd be tempted to stick something down the disposal to see that its even running ... DON'T. Trust me, its that quiet. I'll just have to wait to see if this one is as dependable as the last one. Pros: Very, very quiet. Easy installation (just have a regular and phillips head screwdrivers, pipe or strap wrench, and electricians pliers for the wiring on hand before starting) Cons: Not usually available in-store. In-store price is $519 while on-line price is $319 (buy on-line, they have free shipping).

Excellent disposer
5 Star Review   By Eddie29 on Home Depot - Oct 23, 2009   

I bought this disposer to replace an Insinkerator Badger 1 that had developed cracks in the case and because the motor finally went after 7 years. I was looking for an Insinkerator so that the installation would be "plug and play" as I did not want to replace the collar that attached the disposer to the sink. The old disposer came out very easily and the new one went in just as well. I did buy a new power cord for it, though. I needed to do some minor trimming of the tail fitting because this is a slightly larger unit. I would suggest that you measure the space under your sink and check the specifications of the model you want to install so that you will be sure that it will fit. Besides buying a new power cord, you should buy a cheap pipe tubing cutter so that the cuts are clean, however, a hacksaw will do if your looking to save $. The operation is so much quieter than any other disposer I have heard. Also there is absolutely no vibration at all. The day after installing it, I used it to grind up a lot of stuff that I had when I cleaned out my refrigerator. It is extremely efficient and quiet. I would strongly recommend this unit as a replacement for any Insinkerator Badger disposer. The case is stainless steel and will not crack and the installation took no time at all.

Excellent garbage disposal
5 Star Review   By magic60 on Home Depot - Sep 20, 2007   

After seeing this product advertised on television we decided to go to the Home Depot to see it. Our old disposal unit was a cheap one and I had stopped using it a long time ago because it was a waste of time. We bought this one and have been very impressed, it is extremely quiet, and I can put all my vegetable peelings etc down the sink without worrying that it won't be up to the job. I highly recommend this disposal, it is well worth the extra money.

Excellent Food Waste Disposer!
5 Star Review   By HandyDaddy on Home Depot - Aug 9, 2007   

My previous food waste disposer was getting stuck and jammed frequently. Every time my mother-in-law visited, she would inevitable get it stuck. I think it was on purpose:( ! Every since I installed this food waste disposer, it hasn't gotten stuck or jammed once! Wow! I've had for over 6 months now and it has even survived my mother-in-laws visits. Very quiet. The only drawback is that it takes up a considerable amount of space below the sink. I had to move my water filtration system around but eventually got it to fit.

Greatest disposal yet!
5 Star Review   By Margit on Home Depot - Apr 3, 2007   

After several cheap models through the years I got tired of having to replace them often. This time I bought the best there is; easy installation, it fit under an old sink in an older house. It is so quiet, and I have put it to the test - it is true, you no longer have to worry what to put down the disposal, just do it! It will do all jobs - I absolutely love it and have recommended it to all my family and friends!

Evolution Excel Garbage Disposal
5 Star Review   By HD101 on Home Depot - Jan 21, 2007   

We were replacing an Insinkerator 3/4 HP garbage disposal. After reviewing the Insinkerator website and the specs for the Excel model, we purchased the product at Home Depot for $299. Since we were replacing a current unit, it was really just a plug and play. Installation was very easy and under 15 minutes. If you are not replacing an existing unit, you will want to take note, that there is not a power cord included in the packaging. Other than that, everything you need is in the box. The unit is large, so check the dimensions to your installation space. The Excel is amazingly quiet. You almost cannot tell that it is running. Really! Great unit and worth the price.

Awesome product
4 Star Review   By SRXguy on Home Depot - Nov 26, 2006   

I just purchased and installed this product today. So far it seems to work great. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is no where on the packaging does it say you have to buy your own power cord and a cord clamp to install the cord to the bottom of the disposer. This information should be on the outside of the box. The outside of the box does indicate which tools you'll need and even says you'll need plumbers putty but there is no mention that the power cord isn't included. Luckly I was replacing an old disposer and was able to remove it's power cord and use it. For $300 a power cord should be included.

Smooth Running Machine
5 Star Review   By Shadow on Home Depot - Nov 24, 2006   

Very fast, very efficient. It's brand new, so it works great so far. Looks cool too -- even though it is under the sink.
