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...

      Purchased thus as an exact replacement from I had installed 11 years ago. Installed in a 10 minutes. It is quiet and reliable. The old one was rusted out from the inside. Can not beat the value and price.

      I needed an Insinkerator brand disposal to fit my new Elkay Perfect Drain sink. Small is adequate for my needs. This one is much quieter than my previous one. Very easy for plumber to install. Quality and good value.

          The most quiet garbage disposal I ever owned. Plenty of power and ideal for a household that dislikes that loud grinding noise. Excellent quality and the install was relatively easy.

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

                The Insinkerator is a good product, but I had to find an amateur Youtube video to learn how to install it. Of course I made the classic mistake and did not remove the knock out for the dishwasher hose. My question is, why not have your own installation video available online for customers? And why don't you include an inexpensive allen wrench tool (jam buster) with the product?

                I have only had this product for about a month. Wish it was a higher horsepower but this came with the house. So far so good! I did not install it so it was hard to rate that but said excellent because builder did not say otherwise.

                  I have bought the Badger 1 several times in my lifetime for use in different homes we have occupied. It works just fine and is very easy to install. Very little time is required to install it and very few tools are needed for installation. With plastic drain pipes, the orientation and fit of mating parts on the drain side is a simple task. The working lifetime of this unit is several years in my experience.

                  This unit replaced another brand that was 9 years old and still working. Since we replaced our kitchen countertop, it required a new sink, and we decided to replace the garbage disposal at the same time. The installation was very easy, and we were pleasantly surprised at how quiet and balanced this new Insinkerator was compared to our old disposal.
