Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tangodown Installation was a snap, as long as you have all the neccesary materials (plumbers putty)
I researched a bunch of units for replacement of my old leaking unit, this model was highly rated for its food munching abilities as well as quiet operation.
It met all my expectations at a great price. I wish I could do a long term summary later, but it has been installed for a few months now with no problems. Only took about 45 minutes to remove old unit and install new.
My only small gripe is the rubber "shutter" that keeps items from dropping into the disposal doesn't let water drain freely, it creates an air trap that you have to manually open up to let the water drain. Design Engineers need to take a look at that issue.

Replaced my old Badger (7 years old started leaking) and this is much quieter and grinds all kinds of scraps I would never put in the Badger like citrus peels for instance. Easy to install - I installed it myself and am not a plumber (male) and would be helpful to have someone assist with the holding of it as it is a little heavy - make sure you order it with a cord! It doesn't come with one so I was lucky to have the old one to install and reuse (you could buy at Home Depot anyway)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RPM35 Very quiet disposal
I have only had this product for a week, so I haven't had a chance to use it much yet. However the disposal was fairly easy to install. And it is very quiet compared to the 15 year old 3/4 hp disposal that I was replacing. Most importantly it has chewed through all the food that I have put inside it to date.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Duke Very quiet and easy to install
I purchased this model to replace a 20+ year old GE. The installation took about 30 minutes. The most difficult part was getting the snap ring installed. It is a two person job with one person pushing down on the sink flange from above. The unit is very quiet. I highly recommend this model.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chris1974 So quiet and powerful!
For around $200 this is a great product. My dad has used this same model for a couple years now and recommended it. The unit is quiet and powerful, which is exactly what everyone wants in a garbage disposal. Installation was not a pain and I'm even a first time home owner.

I purchased this model to replace a 10 year old GE when we installed new countertops/sinks. My cousin installed one in his new home and said it worked well and was very quiet. I used the electircal cord from the GE unit for the install. The installation took about 30 minutes. The most difficult part was getting the snap ring installed. I tried using the disposal to hold the sink flange in place but it wasn't heavy enough. I had my wife push down on the sink flange from above. This worked like a charm and the snap ring went in easily. I highly recommend this model.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mit10ch25 Evolution Essential 3/4 HP Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal
My plumber had a little difficulty installing it as he had to go buy a "kit" he needed to install this new one after he took off the old non-working one. Not sure if it was just unique to my situation due to the age of the previous one or that the part was needed to install it regardless, but overall, I am very pleased with it. It is very quiet and works efficiently. Happy with my purchase!

The Insinkerator garbage disposal that was already in our home when we bought it almost 13 years ago finally decided to call it quits. We have no idea how old this appliance really was, but it looked archaic. It was therefore a no-brainer to decide to replace it with yet another Insinkerator brand disposal. I rated "energy efficiency" average simply because we're talking about a 3/4 horsepower machine, or in other words, power requires power. The efficiency aspect is in the machine's functions.
