We've owned our home for 17 years now and I replaced the original disposal with a Badger 5 after the first 4 years. Well, it finally died so I'm off to get another one just like it. At roughly $7.00 a year, who's complaining?

Three Badgers were installed by the builder in my new 3-Family home 1st occupied in January 2008. They have plastic housings. Two out of three developed cracked housings near where the disposal attaches to the sink drain hole and had to be replaced by December 2010. Performance was otherwise satisfactory. I cannot recommend these units because of the high rate of housing cracks.

    I can't really comment on this one. I just installed 3/5/16, but it is essentially the same model that it replaced. That one lasted over 10 years.

    I don't have any compliments or any complaints. But it doesn't seem to work as efficiently as I would think it would. I don't throw food in the sink, its all thrown in the trash. So what does go into the disposal is very little. Not very impressed.

    this garbage disposal was very easy to install, priced competitively, and works great. We had one for about 10 years and it finally rotted a hole in the under cabinet part. Would recommend for homeowners.

        Our other Badger 5 finally gave up the ghost after 15 years of good service. We bought this and was able to install it no problems at all. We could have gone with a more expensive, and possibly quieter appliance but the other one did so well we decided to stick with something we knew would work. We have had it for a little over a couple of months and it is still grinding with confidence.

        Recently our garbage disposal had to be replaced & it was replaced with the new Badger 5. It's quick & chops up the disposal quicker than our previous one. Seems to work well & smooth without leaving any food in the bottom of the disposal or smell.

          The power cord is not included with this disposal. The box does not tell you this and the guys at the hardware store don't tell you either. So you'll have to make a couple of trips to the store and spend alittle extra $ before you get everything you need. Once installed, it works well.

                      I had this unit installed by a plummer friend, who indicated that it was as good as any other unit on the market, and maybe a bit better than many. I complained that other reviews stated that the plastic shell was prone to leakage, and my plummer said that once they went to plastic shells, all units are prone to leak, sometime or other. That does not please me, as the location of my sink is over a downstairs area that is wide open -- and a leak would really mess things up there. So, we have to keep a bucket under it. Oh well.

                      I just replaced my old Badger garbage disposal after almost 20 years with very little trouble. The new Badger 5 model has a little more hp so I'm sure it will do the job. I hope this new one is as reliable and lasts as long. Very pleased so far.

                        Existing GD still spun but only after being coaxed with a drilling machine from the blockage release spindle underneath the unit. Couldn't believe it failed so soon and then looked back on its receipt and did not realize we had had it since December 2008 - got more than 6 years work out of it, and believe me it works constantly!!! Was a no brainer to replace it with the same budget model - made the sacrifice with a noisier unit - we find the noise comforting.. We would definitely recommend this unit to other homeowners who use the GD plenty of times.

                            We haven't had any issues or problems with this machine. It's been a great product for the money with wonderful uses. One of the least expensive we could find. It's quieter than our last garbage disposal purchase with the house over 15 years old. Easy to install as long as you read the instructions and don't forget to punch out the dishwasher attachment plug.

                              I just replaced my original Insinkerator Badger 5 garbage disposal that we got when we built our house 26 years ago. I was very pleased with the quality so we bought another one just like it. I think the new one is quieter than the old one and it was easy to install. Would recommend this product to anyone.
