Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1stTimeInstaller Impressive disposal!!
I recently moved in and there was an existing, older 1/3HP Badger unit installed. It was jammed so I decided to not deal with it and just replace it with a new disposal. The Evolution is more than I wanted to spend, but the reviews were outstanding and the promise of a more quiet disposal was enticing. This unit is definitely solid quality from all aspects and appearances, and lives up to the claims...
I installed it myself and, though it isn't difficult, it does take longer than some estimates if you are not used to a few details. There are numerous videos out there that are helpful and I recommend reviewing a couple to get the idea before starting if you have no experience. One thing that none of them show, and I found the hardest part - getting that split ring on! The videos always stop before showing that step, and it is my belief they were edited as such to delete the colorful language that ensued. All disposals seem to use the same attachment method though, so you have to put up with it regardless. Once you get it on you'll be like, "That wasn't so bad" - but it takes a few tries and patience. The only other thing to watch for in a replacement situation is that this unit has a larger diameter at the top than many, so watch for potential interference up high.
Performance - unbelievable! "Quiet" is a difficult term to quantify. Honestly, this unit makes about the same noise when operating as the replaced, jammed unit did just turning on (if you're familiar with that noise level). It is that quiet and vibration free, at least on the simple things thrown at (in) it thus far.
It is difficult to spend 2 to 3 times the cost of another unit you could put in to "do the job." BUT, I have to say, whenever you flip that switch - yeah, it was worth it!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dave Only lasted about a year
It just got jammed up, and we could not unjam it. I called a plumber who said that he could not unjam the unit. He said that maybe the motor broke, but it would be less expensive to buy a new one then to rebuild the old one. So that's $528 down the drain. (Unit cost plus installation cost to put in a new unit.) So we had to buy a new one. It only lasted about 18 months.

This is just a solid garbage disposal and so quiet! I really like it a lo. Also a good stainless steel makes me feel assured that it will last and not get gunky inside and will clean well.

This unit is great. It was an easy install using the electric outlet under the sink to a switch. The unit is very quick when being used. This unit should last many years because of it well made design.

Bought the best rated disposer on the market to replace a 27 year old Insinkerator. Super quiet works great. Wouldn't have anything else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jojosunshine excellent!
The Evolution Excel Disposal is well worth spending a little more. It is so powerful and whisper quiet. It is designed to last and look great with its stainless steel body. It can handle most any kind of food scraps. I'm very happy with our choice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dogmother Very quiet disposal
I liked the ability to hear the sound levels of the different model disposals in the store, as sound was an important consideration for me. This model is extremely quiet, does a good job, and was easy to install. I would recommend it.
