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 our second one in a little over 5 years. Bought the first one when we bought our house, I guess we wore it out. Bought the exact replacement so it would fit right it. I guess ready for another 5 years!

      Since installing this in the past 3 months, we have found it to be not only a quiet disposal, but it also takes care of the garbage with ease. I moved up to this InSinkerator model based on a resident in my development having a great success with it. I'm very happy with this product.

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

        We just finished a kitchen remodel which included a Badger 1 garbage disposal. Our kitchen design included a sink base cabinet with a revise drawer, (a pull out drawer on the bottom) which would limit space for a disposal. The size of the Badger 1 was perfect. Reviews spoke about higher than normal noise levels but since the size was the most importance feather we purchased one. Bottom line is its easy to install, a quality product, plenty of power, and quieter than the one we replaced, I can find no fault with it, and would recommend it.

            After just 2 years of light use, the motor stopped working. It doesn't seem reasonable to expect to replace a garbage disposal every 2 years.

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

                I got this item because I had an old Badger One and I figured the job would be simple to swap the new one in, and it mostly was. However, the disposal is already leaking from the bottom. It is pretty disappointing that a new, warranted item basically leaked immediately from the moment of installation. Now, I guess I am forced to remove it and return it and cross my fingers that the next one isn't defective.

                This product was pretty easy to install. Took me about 30 min. I even grabbed my 15yr old and had him learn on the go w me. Instructions were very easy to understand, awesome visuals too. This product also runs smooth & quiet, very quiet. Had it a few weeks and no problems whatsoever. Does the job well.

                My waste disposal unit went bad so i found this one. It was the exact same one i had and being a little handy ( very little) i decided to give it a try. Well getting the old one off no problem . However the new one did not come with the power cord i had to disconnect from the old to new. Does require a little patience but not too bad overall. My original was in a tight space so keep that in mind when reinstalling to sink. If youre not flexible it might be easier to get a plumber.

                  replaced an ancient ss330 model , so some dimensions differed and required some piping rework. the 1/3hp seems fine for a family of two and runs nicely.

                      This is a great do it all garbage disposal. I prefer the plug in model. I recently replaced my badger unit after 7 years of hard work. It was an easy fix. 45 minutes from start to finish, taking the old one out and putting the new one in. Extremely power unit for only being 1/3 hp. I will purchase another one!

                      Our old Insinkerator just stopped working one day. It was in our 6 year old home when we purchased it 7 years ago, so it lasted about 13 years. We had a plumber install it and the only problem we noticed is that a power cord was not included, as noted on the small print on the box. It's too bad one cannot be included for either a homeowner to install or a plumber. It was more costly to have it installed than the original price........... All in all, it is working just fine, and we hope for another 13 years!
