  • Self Install - Surprising Quality
  • August 25, 2012
  • Recommended Product

Upon buying a new home, I discovered that I had inherited a severely neglected disposal unit. I suspect that the device was installed when the home was built (2006) and had been installed improperly at that time. It was missing the three tightening screws on the mount collar, so it had been leaking and rusting from pretty much every possible point. (Don't forget to use plumber's putty when installing!)The Insinkerator Evolution Select 5/8 HP disposer was in the middle of the price range for available models. At the store, I could not determine if it included a Quick Lock mount (which it does) so I purchased one.Note: The disposal does include a Quick Lock mount, gasket, and stopper.Note: The disposal does NOT include a power cable, or strain relief parts. If you need one you must purchase an optional cable kit.In my case, power was supplied from the wall / switch so the cable kit was not needed. However, since ALL disposals must be powered, I recommend to Insinkerator that they include the strain relief parts with the disposal.Installation: A breeze. I had a much harder time removing the old rust-siezed mount. Almost all necessary parts are supplied. I had to re-use a PVC fitting from the old pipe, but I elected to use the new (provided) pipe and cut it to size. I purchased the recommended plumber's putty, and had no issues following directions. For electrical, I used some wire connectors I had available.Noise: What Noise? There might be a problem if you do food prep in a library. The unit is specifically designed to reduce vibration. Sure you can tell it's running, which is important for not losing a spoon or perhaps a finger. There are models that are quieter, but after using this I can't see a reason to upgrade.Appearance: It is maroon. Yep, just like on the package. Every time you reach under the sink for a cleaner, you'll probably find yourself admiring it. It also has a large interior chamber for relatively easy cleaning.Made in USA! I'm glad to see that. Five stars; I didn't see anything that I felt was poor quality.

Pros: Easy to Install, Stylish, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design Cons: some additional parts required.

This is one of the few purchases lately that have really pleased me. First lets start out with the installation. This was replacing an existing insinkerator so the installation for me was a breeze, in fact it took me longer to clean out the cupboard to be able to get in there and work than it did to remove the old disposal and install the new one. (Because the insinkerator flange was already installed, all I had to do was disconnect the drain, the dishwasher drain, and the electrical cord, and then just untwist the whole thing from the flange. Then I just had to reverse that process. The whole removal and install maybe took me 15-20 minutes. Now on to the performance. First let me say this thing is very quiet, you can carry on a normal conversation with this disposal running, if you're more than about 10-15 feet away you wouldn't know it was running. As for the performance, this is very powerful. Nothing I have put in there has been a problem. The other day I had a strip steak for dinner and there was a line of very tough gristle along one side, it was so tough it was difficult to cut with a very sharp knife. Now normally I don't put meat into the disposal but I thought I would try to see if this disposal would chew up this gristle (I really thought I was going to have to retrieve it from within and throw it away) but it just chewed it up and down the drain it went. Overall I would highly recommend this disposal. For the price it is very quiet and powerful.

Pros: Easy to Clean, Sturdy, High Quality, Easy to Install

  • Thanksgiving Killed Our Old Garbage Disposal
  • November 30, 2013
  • Recommended Product

I just replaced our Insinkerator garbage disposal for the second time in 31 years in this house. Our old one started leaking after Thanksgiving. Since this was a replacement, the install only took about 30 minutes, because I could use the previous sink fitting. This installation is straightforward with simple tools. The only challenge is holding the unit up to the drain opening, keeping it square while locking all three lugs with a wrench in your other hand.The new disposal is a good bit quieter than our old one. Best of all . . . Made in the U.S.A.

Pros: Easy to Use, High Quality, Stylish, Nice Design, made in the usa

I purchased this disposal to replace another Insinkerator 5/8 HP disposal which started leaking after 8 years. The prices was right, it was easy to install for someone who isn't the biggest DIYer on the planet, and it's quiet. It's chewed up everything we've put down it, including pits, chunks of pineapple rind and lime wedges with no issues.

Pros: Sturdy, High Quality, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design

Our 20 year old Insinkerator was loud, and only partially effective: forget potato peels... It finally quit and started to smoke last week, so I bought this one at The Home Depot along with some Plumbers Putty. I had already turned off the power at the breaker and tested using an indicator for safety.First, I removed the old flange and disposal, using the same plumbing and electrical cable to connect the new one. The new drain flap design is better than the old one, the rubber insert can be removed from the top, compared to the previous design which required removing the disposal to change. It took an hour for the entire switch out.The kit includes a new sink flange, and a couple of different plastic out spouts, one straight and the other a down angled one. I didn't have to use either of them. I like the spring clamp to grasp the out spout at the disposal. I had to trim the plastic drain tubes under the sink. The height of the out spout is the same as the old disposal. The new disposal is fatter at the upper portion, but not so large that I had to trim anything under the sink. Well worth it for the extra silence you get.After checking for leaks, and electrical integrity, I tried the disposal. It's so quiet compared to the old Insinkerator, you hardly know it's running. There is much less vibration as well. The new disposal has a 4 year warrantee. Here's hoping it lasts as long or longer than the old one.

Pros: High Quality, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, Quiet

  • So quiet, my wife thought I installed it wrong

After installing it, I went to turn the breaker on. When I did, my wife turned the unit. It was so quiet, she thought I had installed it wrong.I was amazed - I thought all disposers shook the cabinets loose and vibrated the sink like an agitator on a washing machine.This is awesome. I'd write more, but I gotta go find stuff to grind up!

Pros: Durable, Nice Design

I have installed hundreds of disposals in my 35 years of maintaining houses and apartments. If you are considering Badger, these are a much better unit hands down.Badger units were cheaper so I thought they were the best solution for rental units, but after replacing so many of them, wearing out in as little as 3 years, I started installing Evolution disposals.These Evolution disposals have an all stainless grinding zone, upgraded bearings and seals, and create half the noise and vibration compared to the Badger disposals. They are smaller than the stainless Waste King units I have, which also have proven to be good units.So far every Evolution unit (at least 10), that I have installed are performing really well, really quiet, and I think will last a dozen years or more.

Pros: Durable, High Quality, Easy to Install, Nice Design Cons: more expensive

I bought this to replace a 12 year-old Badger (interestingly enough, they still sell the exact same model). While the Badger was (and is) a perfectly acceptable disposer, it would sometimes get overwhelmed when faced with a large amount of pasta or potato peels, allowing them to pass through into the drain and causing a clog.I don't have this problem with the Evolution select. The two stage grinder virtually eliminates the possibility of unchopped food getting past it.Yes it is quiet and has a nice vibration-absorbing mount, but for a product I use for only a few minutes a day, those are not killer features.No, the absolute best feature is one that they don't advertise: A removable rubber baffle. Every disposer I've owned always got smelly, usually due to rotting foot on the bottom side of the baffle. The Evolution's baffle can be removed, rinsed off, and replaced to make sure it is clean on both sides. Genius!While they sell more powerful Evolution models, the 5/8 HP that this model has should be all you need. Indeed, I never found the 1/3 HP on my old Badger to be lacking for power.Installation is pretty much like any disposer: If you are not replacing the exact same model you had before, you likely will need to do some PVC work to get the drain to line up. And, as others mentioned, there is no power cord. I just reused the cord from my old unit.All in all, I highly recommend this unit.

Pros: Easy to Clean, High Quality

This is an excellent disposer. However if you are installing it yourself, purchase a dishwasher connector kit.Some plumbers find the hose from the dishwasher is not the same diameter as the nipple on the disposer. In my case the hose was connected to a piece of PVC on the main drain with the correct nipple size of the hose. If you want the hose connected to the disposer, get this kit, #DWC-00.You may want to use a screw clamp instead of the spring clamp that comes with the kit. Makes this so much easier,and you will be sooo happy.

Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Sturdy, High Quality, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design Cons: get the dishwasher connector kit.
