This basic disposer was very easy to install and is performing well (light user). The only negative is the fact it does not come with an electrical cord - not a major issue since cords are easy to purchase but from my view it's lame that you have to purchase it separately.

The product worked well for about 6 years and then I noticed water in my custom cabinet coming from under the Insinkerator 500. The water did some damage and warped the wood. I researched the problem and found that a seal inside the unit (flywheel seal) very often fails allowing water to drain out of the bottom of the unit. It appears that this is a design flaw or possibly built in obsolescence since there are a great many blogs on this issue. I purchased another of the same and hopefully the company has corrected the problem. I am saving the old unit and will try to find a replacement seal to fix as a backup unit. No luck finding the seal so far. I find it odd that it does not show on the parts diagram...

Great Unit... Quite with Performance....but...

By KenSpring

Pros

  • robust / quality

Cons

  • holds water

    Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

    This is a typical Insinkerator unit... great quality and robust... but, I seem to have water flow problems with then new twin level design... seems water is not draining fast enough into the plumbing and has a tendency to flow into my dishwasher .... never had this problem with my previous insinkerator... this seems to happen when water is constantly flowing into the unit...and it will fill and hold water.... not typical... must make sure the unit is running... this seems to help.... outside of filling up with water, it is flawless...

    I had an odour problem but now I remove the black rubber flange to wash, that may have been where the odour came from. I find it runs quietly and efficiently.

    Time for a new unit

    By HerbM

    from Englewood, FL, USA

    Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

    We bought our house about 4 years ago. It had been vacant for about 4 years also. Everything worked OK for a couple of years, and one day this past December my wife told me under the sink was wet and she thought it was from the dishwasher. After investigation I found some hairline cracks in the upper housing of the disposal. I tried the epoxy repair route, and thought I had corrected the problem, but we had continued leaking. I bought a new Insinkerator and when I removed the old one I found another crack around the back side which had not been visible from the front view. New one installed--no more leaks ! Unit works well and is much quieter than the old one; although the old one did work fine.

          Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

          I am disappointed that it can't handle some of the vegetable scraps that I have tried to put down it, like onion skin and butternut squash peelings. It backs up and we have to plunge it. Also it is noisy and it makes a terrible noise if I put a half a lime in it. It comes with a little rubber flange for the sink, that gets sucked into the machine if I have too much water go down the sink.

          Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

          The product was ready to install right out of the box with little effort so long as it was originally plumbed in properly. I had to fix a bad plumbing job and it was that hard to correct that and install the new unit. On a scale from 1 to 10 I'd give this unit a 10 for ease of installation!

                  I replaced an old Badger which had rusted out. This product is stainless steel, so my installer said I shouldn't have this problem in the future. The Insinkerator is quite efficient, but has trouble with items such as lemon peels. It is also quite noisy. Fortunately that doesn't bother me. Overall, I would reco this product

                  My 15+ year old disposal died and my repairman recommended the Insinkerator Evolution . He installed it in about 20 mins and it works like a charm . It's very quiet , especially compared to the last one with the dying motor. Hopefully, i won't have to worry about replacing this one for a very long time.

                                  This unit came with the house and was installed by the builder. After installation, the unit was extremely noisy. Seems the grinder cogs were loose from the factory. Based on my experience, I don't expect this unit to last very long. If you are purchasing a disposal, spend the few extra dollars to get a unit with stainless steel on the inside and more insulation for sound.

                                  Powerful, quite running, fits nicely under the sink/counter. Control button on counter is not entirely flat. Looks a little off. Have reinstalled but still not perfect, but not that big of an issue.
