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...

      This is a replacement insinkerator that we put in during a kitchen remodel. We replaced our last one which was still operating well after 15 years. It's quiet, smooth and very simple to install.

        Love our new disposal! It's very quiet. A subcontractor installed it, so that's why I only gave it a 4. I assume it was very easy for him!

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

              My pricey garbage disposal gave out after ten years of loyal service. I didn't want to invest in the same brand because I might move within a year. The Badger 1 was the obvious choice. The Badger was half the price of some competitors and still came with a one-year warranty. Though it is louder than my first disposal, the Badger 1 is not obnoxiously loud, and it gets the job done. Additionally, the installation was easy.

                    I couldn't be happier with my purchase. The item is quiet, powerful and easy to install. The installation instructions are well written and the push button start/stop feature is an added value, compared to my old disposer, this is ten times better. I highly recommend this product.

                        This unit was a replacement for the same model which I installed 25 years ago. Hope this one lasts as long. The installation was very easy since it was identical to the old unit. I have been using it for about a month and no problems.

                            While a standard item, and replaced a similar item, its replacement went smoothly as this was my first one. I followed the instructions and had no issues. It is quieter than the one it replaced and works efficiently. The price was competitive and its reviews were valid.

                            Annoying emails requesting a review... The product works fine but I don't have anything to compare it to. It is what was installed in my new house and I didn't choose it. So nothing bad to say... I have probably only used it a total of 4 times in 5 months because I just rarely put food down the disposal.

                                This insinkerator was included by the builder for my home. Within the first week it needed to be reset and was making a loud noise because something was loose. By the second week it was clogged from carrot peelings. Water began to back up into my sink so I had to use a plunger to free it up. I was very surprised that it can't handle the small quantity of peelings. It is fairly quiet during operation so I give it 2 stars overall. If I had any say in this purchase, I would have selected a model with more horsepower.

                                  My house was built in 2000 with a Badger1 disposal. After 17 years if finally died. I replaced it with the same make and model a few months ago and haven't experienced any problems. Because the original lasted for so long I didn't feel the need to move to a different brand.

                                    Works as well as older smaller version but MUCH quieter. However, installer goofed (failed to connect dishwasher outlet and we have ruined kitchen cabinets and wall board). Not your fault!

                                    I was surprised at how loud the disposal is. My previous one was not as noisy. I would not purchase this product again for that reason.

                                    We love our Evolution model. Its is very quiet, but super efficient.

                                    Too new to write a review, but it's the same brand I used for several years, so I expect that it will be fine.

                                    The unit was a replacement for the same model that lasted 5 years. The old one was leaking from the bottom. I recycle almost everything so this unit had very little use. If your old one was the same model, and it probably was, it is very easy to replace because you can use the same sink mounting hardware and just screw the new one in. Plumbing and electrical will line up and your done. The hardest part is compressing the rubber seal with one hand while you line up and screw on the unit with the other hand. I happened to have a bottle jack and used it to hold the unit in place to line it up. Be careful if you use a jack as you could easily buckle the bottom of the sink with too much pressure..

                                    Unit was installed as a replacement for a Badger that came with the house (new in 2009). Instructions were good and installation was easy.

                                      Installation was relatively straight forward, however I replaced a previous competitor unit so it was a bit easier. The unit performs well with relative quietness. To date it has not created any blockages in the drain system as our previous unit did. Also it handles much more dense material such as banana peal stems, haven't tried chicken bones yet and likely won't. Overall very good unit.
