Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HoneyDo1More Quick, Easy Replacement Disposal
I bought this disposal to replace my old Kenmore disposal that was no longer made. I ordered online and it was delivered within a wk by UPS. The box was smashed and had a couple of holes in it upon opening it the styrofoam padding was shattered and the small foam pellets were stuck everywhere due to static electricity ( lot of cleaning before able to install it ) the plastic drain pipe included with the disposal was busted into a dozen pieces and useless. Luckily the old one on the sink was usable. The Product was a great item at a good price, the packing and shipment of it left alot to be desired. Have had it installed for a month now and works great no leaks and pretty quiet for a disposal.I would reccomend it to anyone needing to replace their old disposal.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by InSinkerHater 2 major exterior cracks
InSinkerator service tech in Manila said the 2 major exterior cracks were from "normal wear and tear." Ridiculous. Wish I could give it ZERO stars...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Katey GREAT PRODUCT
The Quick-Mounting System was wonderful. My husband is 75 years old. With a little help from a neighbor, they had the old garbage disposal out and the new one installed. It took less than an hour and a half. Everything matched up PERFECTLY. If I had known how easy it was to install this garbage disposal, I would have bought it a year ago. Instead, I’ve been using a wooden spoon to jump start mine, every time I wanted to use it. This garbage disposal is strong and quiet. Great product. Thank you…..Katey

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bobby458 Reliability and installation
The original Badger 1 was, as near as I can determine, an original in the condo we purchased. We have lived in this unit for 13 years, and the unit was built in 1991. If this in fact, true, I think that the rest of the grinders need to go home and let InSinkerator be the one. The installation was a breeze because I had replaced the sink about 2 years ago and I replaced the mounting ring at that time, so it was just a matter of rewiring the new unit and and locking in place and making the necessary plumbing hook ups and we were good to go. Thanks for making it easy for someone who is not really mechanically inclined.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Phred designed for failure
This is the second Badger 1 I've replaced (in two different houses). They seem a fair value for what you pay. Somewhat noisy. But they seem to be designed for failure after ~X years. My experience suggests X is ~5 years. The most recent failure and why I'm back shopping for another is an inexplicable set of ~20 small corrosion holes very evenly spaced all around the unit exactly 5 1/2 inches from the the bottom. There is no apparent functional/mechanical/electrical reason for why these holes should appear in the casing. Eventually one of the them popped open and caused leaking when the unit operates or is under deluge. Called Insinkerator and they plead ignorance. But the sheer exactness of these new holes where there shouldn't be a hole suggests a design for failure flaw. If a 5 year replacement cycle works for you then this is a good unit. It is easy to install. And replace.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JimS2 This product is made of inferior materials
Sadly, the life expectancy of this product is only about 4 years due to the use of metal which corrodes quite easily. The critical parts of this product are made of a cheap zinc based alloy which ensures a short product life. The electric motor will outlast the deterioration of the interior metal components. It's time that Badger upgrade to stainless alloy steel so as to increase product life. The product price keeps going up but the quality does not.

I'm a typical "DIY" homeowner, and will tackle modest electrical, plumbing, and remodel projects. In connection with replacing a 30 year old porcelain sink (yellow in color!) with a Moen stainless sink, I replaced the waste disposer as well. This product installed easily, and works well. It is quiet and vibration free. It quickly chews up food waste. I recommend it to anyone for normal household use.
