Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LewBob Doesn't grind food fine enough.
We had this installed with a kitchen remodel four years ago. Just two of us live hear now, so it doesn't get heavy use. The last year we have had plumbers out three time to clear the line that the kitchen feeds into. The last time I took a picture of the junk the plumber snagged from the line. You can see why the line closed up!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dickie As a landlord, bought 5. None lasted more than 5 years before rusting out.
My old garbage disposals lasted decades, even though they were low end models. American steel. The newer disposals I've bought seem to rust away within a few years, either the housing itself rusts through or the plate inside rusts. Chinese steel. For my own house I bought a high end model and it's still going strong after 6 years with no signs of rust.. For my rentals, I've been replacing the badgers with low end Waste Kings but it's too early to tell how they'll hold up. I'm not sure if this generation of Badgers being sold now is made the same way as they were 5 years ago, but I'd avoid them based on my experience. Granted, they all lasted longer than their 1 year warranty, but how often do you really want to replace them?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaveCCK Easy to Install
I was initially going to hire someone to install this disposal, but after reading the instructions and watching several videos online, I decided to do it myself. The process was easy, and I was done within an hour. Took a little longer for me to stop some leakage from the downspout, but that was my inexperience at play. Good product, good price.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MrFixit Relatively inexpensive and does the job
I purchased the Badger 5 to replace an older Badger from Insink-erator that was probably installed in 2006. The old one had started to leak badly and had seized up on me twice. The new one installed quite easily as it was a pretty straightforward swap. It does the job, but it is a bit noisy and vibrates.
In 1996 I installed a Insink-erator "933" in my old home. It is still going strong, never a problem. It's so true that you get what you pay for. The "933" has been working for twenty years and is still chugging along, and the Badger, I think, lasted just about ten years.

Does what it is supposed to do. Had to replace the same model that went after almost 6 years. I was hard in that one though and had aquarium rocks not fallen in on a few occasions it probablynwouldnhave lasted longer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DSM Put two of these in service for neighbors in one morning.
This disposal was the same as the one that began leaking after many years of service. Remove a couple drain lines, take down the old disposal, install a power cord, install the disposal and start using the unit. Easy to install.

To replace my 30 year old disposal, fit the same as old one but much quieter that original. Big enough for single home use. Very pleased
