Easy to assemble although it will take you much longer if it is a replacement unit. It takes at least a half an hour to remove you old disposer. You may have to replace old drain parts which can be frozen or will break when you remove them. Transferring your power cable to the new unit may take half an hour. Factor in a run to your favorite hardware store.
Write down the serial number before you install the unit, you will need it to register your product. That way you won't have to go under the sink to get it once the disposer is installed.
The installation instructions were very straight forward and easy to understand. The diagrams were very good.

Replaced a 12 year old unit. Cramped space for install. Most 3/4 horse would not fit, this did. Not quiet, but a good bit quieter than one we replaced. Install was super easy. Works like a champ. Price better than other options.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RickInFullerton Lasted more than 11 years
I installed the predecessor to Model 900 Insinkerator 444 3/4HP it lasted 11 years 5 months. So I bought another Insinkerator. We were satisfied with performance over the years both grinding and noise level. What eventually happens is water causes corrosion and the bearings loose lubrication so the unit seizes up after many years.
The Waste King 3100 prior to the first Insinkerator lasted 7 years but I took it apart and lubricated the bearing so it lasted to 10 years.
When installing don't forget to remove the plug for the dishwasher drain connection!

Easy to install. This was a replacement for an insinkerator that came with the house. Much better than the old one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jcheiser Great replacement!
We had the low end version of this unit which was not stainless steel. After 10 years it gave up so we invested a bit more money for the higher horsepower as well as the stainless steel parts this newer model has. I couldn't be happier with the purchase and the unit. Although I didn't have to purchase the electrical cord as the older unit had the same cable, I decided to spend the extra few bucks to replace it as well. This unit was professionally installed so I couldn't tell you how long it would take a handy homeowner but I bet its less that 60 minutes start to finish. The part that may take you a bit it if you aren't an electrical wiz when it comes to connecting the power cable. Also, the unit requires an outlet under the sink and if you don't have one of those then add in additional time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tarhoosier Better than the older smaller Badger
This replaced an older Badger 1/2 hp model which was nearly gone. It had become such an electrical drain the kitchen lights dimmed, it roared like a wood chipper and clogged every few months. This is 50% more power and stainless rather than galvanized for whatever that is worth. The noise is a bit more than I would like but is the standard. It is a HUGE improvement in noise over the old one. I had a plumber install. His advice: feed food through as it accumulates and do not wait until there is a pile before it is run. One can find a strainer cup for the disposer side that allows water to run through but prevents unwanted food or other objects (jewelry, for example) to drop in. This is usually found at a home center.The plumber also said that at his own house he removed the disposer to prevent any issues. He felt the value of a disposer at a single family home is not worth the expense and trouble. Now he tells me.
