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 the disposal you want!

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

My plumber thought that something was wrong when he flipped the switch for the first time, as there's no real noise, barely a sound. I researched everywhere, and this has everything you want, stainless steel grinding chamber, sound reduction, and something I didn't realize until it was installed: a removable, throw in the top rack of the dishwasher, baffle. One thing I've always hated about disposals are the rubber baffles, that wind up getting caked with nastiness in every fold and wrinkle, and up underneath where you can't see (but sure can smell). Now, every time I run the dishwasher, I pull out the baffle and throw it onto the top shelf. It's so easy to remove and install, and now, no nasty build ups!

            I think it took about an hour to dismantle the old insinkerator and install the new one. The new one had most of the parts needed to install and the instructions from taking out the old to installing the new one was great. it purrs like a well oiled machines when I use it and no leaks. They cut down the noise some also

              The InSinkErator, Badger series that I purchased is a class piece of machinery. The installation was easy, especially the snap and lock fittings. The instructions are clear and simple to understand, and the video is the icing on the cake. The InSinkErator is very quiet. Thanks for making a great product.

                    We purchased this Evolution Essential model to replace our 20+ year old Badger, which had been installed by our builder. I hired a handyman to install it as my husband didn't care to do the labor. I'm assuming the installation went well since I had to leave just after the workman began the work and he was gone when I returned home less than 2 hours later. The disposer works well. I didn't give it at 5 star rating only because I don't think it is much more quiet than our old disposer. The noise of a disposer is not a big deal for me, since it doesn't get used more than once a day at most, and I usually compost most of my food waste.

                        I lived in my home for 40 years, this is my third disposal, and my first one was a half horse insinkerater which lasted until December 12, 2009, on this date I got a badger 5 , 1/2 hp and it lasted 6 1/2 years, because it had a bad motor bearing seal failure. I'm a little disappointed let's see what happens with the badger 1. 1/3 hp I hope I have better luck.

                            This is our first disposal and while I was as first concerned that it would not have enough power, for the small amounts of waste we put through it, it is working very well. It is not fantastically quiet but it certainly gets the job done. Like any disposal small amounts and plenty of water is the key.

                              We purchased this product because the product that came with the house just wasn't working well. We had no problem installing the electrical plug for the power and installing to the sink was not a problem. However because we also changed the sink the outflow no longer matched the current plumbing pipes. I guess we could have attempted to try to hook it up but since there was about a 4 inch difference in the alignment we called a professional to hook up the plumbing. I truly believe if we had not changed out the sink that this would have been an easy installation in the plumbing area as well. Once everything was installed I couldn't believe how quiet and efficient this product is. No more vibrations so everything falls into the sink and you can barely hear it.

                              We remodeled our kitchen and purchased a deep (10") single basin sink. As a result, the drain pipe was about an inch higher than the disposal outlet. Our plumber thought that some major re-work would be needed to lower the drain since the cabinets had be installed and the walls closed. However, he called Insinkerator and your agent said that's a common scenario now and that their disposal would handle slight differences like that. He said, "just run the disposal a few seconds after you shut off the water and it will push it out just fine." It worked like a charm...that's why I said your product was good quality and flexible. We have not used it long and have only put light waste through it so far, hence I cannot yet rate it overall as excellent. It is powerful and relatively quiet. In a few months when we've used it more heavily and it holds up well, I would change my rating to excellent.

                              Product reached a day before expected delivery date. I had same exact model earlier and it worked excellent for 10 and 1/2 years. I wanted to get same model as my top attachment with sink (kind of collar) is in good shape and I wanted to keep it to make installation bit easy. Whole install process took less than 30 minutes.

                              I was able to install the disposal relatively quick. Only needed plumbers putty witch was not included in the box. Had to go to the hardware store for putty.

                              Good choice when price is the deciding factor

                                This is the second Badger 1 I have owned. Most recently I purchased a new home and this disposer was installed by the builder. I would point out that it's a loud appliance and there are certainly other choices if you want to reduce the noise. All in all for the price it's a good buy and does the job. The first Bager 1 I had lasted for 10 years before it needed replacement so I can't complain about that.

                                Works fine and was easy to install.
