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...

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

I bought the Badger 1 to replace a Badger 1 that I have had for almost 20 years. I figured if the first one lasted that long the new one should be at least as good if not better.

    The old one had rusted through the side wall with only the paint trying to prevent leaking. The newly revised one appears to be better, time will tell. Ed

      I am satisfied with my Badger. The size is great as it does not take a lot of space under the sink. The speed it operates is better than the Kenmore that I replaced. The price is much less than other brands

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

          We've used InSinkErator for many years (over 25). This unit came with the new house and is a bit louder than we are used to but it works efficiently and thoroughly dissolves even some tough items like the ends of romaine lettuce, limes etc. We are happy with it but will probably upgrade it to a higher end InSinkErator.

                  I have never done any plumbing work or anything like that. But I was determined to replace our disposal myself. The directions were very simple to follow. I was able to do this with tools I already had at the house. It only took me about 40 minutes. If you have experience, it probably would only take 15 or 20 minutes. But I had to read the directions step-by-step. It was not hard at all!

                  This garbage disposal is so quiet you can barely tell its on. Don't worry about the sleeping baby cuz this will not wake them. Replaced old badger, so it just snapped right in. So much better quality than the badger, worth the extra money.

                    Found after 9 years that existing unit had failed. Replaced with a Badger. I found it easy to install, but I had installed more than 30 in my lifetime, do to work. Not sure that the "average" homeowner would find it so easy.

                    Probably the quietest disposal we've ever had. Installation was OK, but not easy. If you're not a good do-it-yourselfer hire a plumber. Will see how it holds up. Our previous Badger disposal lasted 17 years so hopefully this will be the last one I ever have to install.

                        The evolution is definitely a better product that the badger line. It is made in the USA which is important to me. It is noticeably quieter than the badger we had. The 3/4 horse power motor has plenty of power to grind scraps. We have not overloaded it yet. Installation was pretty easy except the evolution is bigger than the old model we had. We had to replace the connector pipe and drain because there was not enough room between the two drains in a double basin sink to use the old piping. There is less vibration with the evolution model and works well.

And when I turned it on for the first time, I couldn't believe how quite it was.

                          I previously had an InSinkeRator that quit after 10 years. Replacing it was easy since the drain attachment was the same so I didn't have to change it out. So I am back to the old grind again :) .

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

                            Went in easy.It runs smoothly with no vibrations on my counter. Chops fairly well. the only thing I don't like is the rubber thing in the sink - my spoons and other small things still slide down the drain hole.
