Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Htexec Best Garbage Disposal in the market
I did a lot of research and about a month ago purchased the Evolution Excel. I am handy but not an expert installer in any way. The product was very easily installed after I spent a few minutes viewing online videos on how to install a garbage disposal. Be sure you knock out the plug for the hook up to your dishwasher, as this isn't very obvious in most installation directions or even online. However, given the product only cost about $80-$100 more than the next smaller unit, I think it is well worth it as it has handled everything we have put into it. You don't need to worry about coffee grinds, chicken bones, etc. etc. Very sturdy, quiet and efficient.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by djhdjh extremely quiet, easy to install
While I've only had the Excel installed for just over a month, so no long-term information, I will say this unit appears to be of high quality. Installation was very easy and it is surprising just how quiet this unit runs. It is also powerful and efficiently disposes of waste. So far, I am very happy with the Evolution Excel. The only negative I would state is that for a product like this and its cost, it should come with a power cord; I imagine nearly everyone wants to plug this in, not hard-wire it, and the lack of a cord affects perception of the company's commitment to customer satisfaction.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tia129 Overall a good disposal
We purchased this based on reviews and are very satisfied. It's very large compared to our old disposal, but it's also very quiet. It seems to grind up anything we put in it. The only qualm we have about it is that when the disposal is empty and we turn on the water, the water in the sink doesn't drain out as fast as with our old disposal (maybe from resistance in the disposal) and starts to back up until we turn on the disposal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dennyls Amazingly quiet--grinds everything
This replaced a 12 year old top-of-the line GE disposal, that broke when a piece of metal accidentally fell into it. The Evolution is so very much quieter than the old unit. It is actually so quiet, it's hard to tell it's running. That's both good and bad! I self installed, and the installation went smoothly, except the unit is very heavy and it was hard to lift it in place to hang on the mounting hardware. It's too soon to tell about longevity, but it's working great in it's first month.
The Evolution is also shorter than the old disposal, so we gained some usable space underneath it in our cupboard.

I never do things in a small way so when the garbage disposal in our 25 year old home failed I had two priorities; 1) Muscle, 2) Quiet. I searched reviews for details other than those of the manufacturer. Although it was more expensive, the Insinkerator Evolution Excel received high ratings from customers with most noting its quiet operation. This unit had a much more powerful motor than others as well. So I ordered one and installed it myself. Good directions. Reasonably easy to install alone. This machine runs great and if you're not standing next to it, would hardly know it was on. The water running in the sink is much louder!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve38 Worth the extra cost
Since a disposal is something you don't install very often we decided to get the most expensive one. Glad we did because this thing is engineered to where it almost makes NO sound! And it grinds well in a few seconds. Even took potato peelings without hesitation. We are happy with our purchase and plan on many more years of good service to amortize the cost while enjoying the luxury of high quality.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lineman123 Great disposal!! Easy to install.
This is a great disposal!!! Well worth it!! I never installed one before and it was really easy to install. After reading the manual I put the left over chicken bones down the drain ( I've never did this before) and it went down without a fight. Awesome!!! Had it for a couple months now and no problems.
