Rated 1 out of 5Â by bjackiec7 Baffle - Poor design or am I not doing this correctly?
I recently had the evolution cover control installed and have 2 issues with it.
1. in order to turn it on, i have to either a) pull out the baffle (the plastic guard) which is disgusting and put the cover on so that it turns on or b) leave the baffle out but now i have a huge hole in my sink where stuff will fall into (obviously don't want to be sticking my hand down in there)
2) it was REALLY quiet the first couple days but now there is a rattling sound
Anyone have any ideas on the issue with the baffle?

Rated 4 out of 5Â by EZMB Baffle?
I recently installed the cover control version, and am surprised about the lack of baffle and having to remove it for use. My previous version of the magnetically controlled unit had a baffle and now I'm let down by the product. Is there anything that can be done?

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ahDIYer Great, quiet & no switch! However, had to replace cover/lid twice since Feb 2007
Great to get rid of electrical switch, quiet, & works great!
Replacement coverlids are not cheap. Only problem has been that cover/lid has worn out twice since original install, Feb 2007. First cover/lid needed replacing in Feb 2011. Second cover/lid needed replacing May 2012.
So far Emerson has replaced (and shipped) both new lid(s) at no cost. 1st customer rep happily volunteered to shipping new lid. 2nd time customer rep told us that lid was NOT covered by warranty. However, after putting us on hold she said they would replace.
Save receipt and/or register when purchase, otherwise Emerson will go off manufacture date for 7 year warranty.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by fatonb Great until you need repair under warranty !
I am a Maintenance person for a building with 200 insinkerators. they work NICE AND QUIET! Every now and then they get stuck (all normal) or Safety switch pops when tenants throw utensils etc in the disposal ( I know Disposals).
Last Week i had one that has no sign of Life, nu humming, the swicth does click but nothing spins!
Insinkerator walked me through troubleshooting and finally gave us a contact info to a local appliance person that will do the warranty work. I explained that i removed it and installed a new one, and I need the bad one repaired/replaced, didn't happen !! He wants me to put back the insinkerator under the sink and leave tenants with a non-working disposal(we all know the sink will get clogged right away) for 2-3 weeks until they test it and/or get a new one from factory! I dont understand this as the disposal has nothing to do with plumbing, you give it power and you'll see the problem!
From my experience, WASTE KING will send you a new one right away.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by skullcap mechnism is workhorse in my home's kitchen, but stopper/switch doesn't match wits
I've had my Evolution series with cover control in operation in my home's remodeled kitchen since early 2007. No complaints about the mechanism, but it begs for a lemon or lime wedge once a week to keep odors away.
My woe has been with the wonky-shaped and weak plastic construction of the magnetic stopper/switch-control. I'm almost on my third one. The magnets eventually break out of their embedded plastic housing, making the stopper too snug to fit in the drain-neck switch.
At $40 a-pop every two years-or-so, it starts raising the lifecycle operating costs to that of a complete new appliance.
