Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Purchase I bought a new Badger disposal to replace the old one of the same model. It lasted a lot of years. It came with detailed instructions and easy to follow. I am a women on disability and it took me a couple of days to install because of lack of strength, but I got it done and it works beautifully. July 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good! I got this disposal to replace our 13 year old Badger 5 and it was a direct replacement. Since I replaced a Badger with another Badger the flange did not need to be replaced. All in all it took me about 30 minutes to change it out, it was pretty simple. My setup doesn't have a p-trap coming off the disposal like they show in the directions so I didn't use the elbow that was included; it's just a straight pipe that goes into a tee at the sink drain. I've seen mixed reviews for this brand so we'll see how long it lasts, but so far it is doing its job. I did notice that it is much quieter that the older one and also is not quite as big, so that is always a plus! August 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It's a garbage disposal... When I bought my house 14 years ago, it had a garbage disposal and it lasted until last month. I bought this disposal, brought it home and pulled my old one out - same brand! Same size! Everything fit with little effort. I have good experience with my old one, and so far I am very happy with the new one. I think this disposal will prove to be as great as my previous one. This new one runs quiet enough for me - it is quieter than the one I replaced. I suppose the higher end models are quieter. I would say that this product is totally AWESOME - but - it is just a garbage disposal. "Everything is awesome..." (Lego movie) April 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Garbage Disposal The Badger 500 was purchased to replace a older model that had rested through . This unit was very easy to install . All I had to do was swap out the electrical plug wires and snap the unit into place . All the plumbing lined right up for easy installation . This disposal is very quite and chews up whatever we put in it . September 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So Far, So Good. Replaced a Similar Model I bought this to replace a similar Insinkerator Badger. It is my understanding that all of the Badgers have pretty much the same dimensions as far as where the pipe outputs and stuff like that. Even the bigger/smaller motored version of the Badger. So, it was fairly easy for a semi-hany person to swap out. If you have a dishwasher, DON'T FORGET TO KNOCKOUT THE KNOCKOUT PLATE!! Don't ask how I know that ;) I had thought about spending a little more money to buy a quieter model. But, I'd potentially have to modify the existing output pipe which is pretty complex in my installation. I talked this over with my girlfriend and it's really not worth it for an appliance that only runs for short bursts. Yes, it's a little loud, but it's not like a dishwasher where it's running continuously for a long time. As far as power, no complaints there. It has plenty for everything I've encountered so far. I imagine it's plenty of power to chew up anything a reasonable person would put down there. I tried a whole apple for the video and that was too big for the chewing blades to reach with out cutting it up first, but otherwise it will east most everything. April 14, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Solid disposal I am the Maintenance Supervisor for a very large apartment complex, I always have my guy's install the badger disposals which saves them time and the company money. The Badgers last a lot longer then other brands. February 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purchase!!! The disposal was easy to install. The instructions were very clear. The product works better than I had imagined. Great price too. October 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chomps up Food Fast! It has been over a month with the Badger 500 and it chews up food really fast so I have never overloaded it yet even though I try! It is great so far and a little quieter than the old disposer. I am not afraid to put peels in there or gunky food. It has eaten a few of my plastic spoons and didn't skip a beat. I have grown up with the Insinkerator brand so I expect this one will last and last as well. I never knew you were supposed to use cold water so I do that now. We had a pro from Home Depot install it and he was fast and courteous. October 19, 2012
