Our 20 year old Insinkerator was loud, and only partially effective: forget potato peels... It finally quit and started to smoke last week, so I bought this one at The Home Depot along with some Plumbers Putty. I had already turned off the power at the breaker and tested using an indicator for safety.
First, I removed the old flange and disposal, using the same plumbing and electrical cable to connect the new one. The new drain flap design is better than the old one, the rubber insert can be removed from the top, compared to the previous design which required removing the disposal to change. It took an hour for the entire switch out.
The kit includes a new sink flange, and a couple of different plastic out spouts, one straight and the other a down angled one. I didn't have to use either of them. I like the spring clamp to grasp the out spout at the disposal. I had to trim the plastic drain tubes under the sink. The height of the out spout is the same as the old disposal. The new disposal is fatter at the upper portion, but not so large that I had to trim anything under the sink. Well worth it for the extra silence you get.
After checking for leaks, and electrical integrity, I tried the disposal. It's so quiet compared to the old Insinkerator, you hardly know it's running. There is much less vibration as well. The new disposal has a 4 year warrantee. Here's hoping it lasts as long or longer than the old one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheInstaller Well worth the money Easy to install
I have installed hundreds of disposals in my 35 years of maintaining houses and apartments. If you are considering Badger, these are a much better unit hands down.
Badger units were cheaper so I thought they were the best solution for rental units, but after replacing so many of them, wearing out in as little as 3 years, I started installing Evolution disposals.
These Evolution disposals have an all stainless grinding zone, upgraded bearings and seals, and create half the noise and vibration compared to the Badger disposals. They are smaller than the stainless Waste King units I have, which also have proven to be good units.
So far every Evolution unit (at least 10), that I have installed are performing really well, really quiet, and I think will last a dozen years or more.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pepperdog Thanksgiving Killed Our Old Garbage Disposal
I just replaced our Insinkerator garbage disposal for the second time in 31 years in this house. Our old one started leaking after Thanksgiving. Since this was a replacement, the install only took about 30 minutes, because I could use the previous sink fitting. This installation is straightforward with simple tools. The only challenge is holding the unit up to the drain opening, keeping it square while locking all three lugs with a wrench in your other hand.
The new disposal is a good bit quieter than our old one. Best of all . . . Made in the U.S.A.

I purchased this disposal to replace another Insinkerator 5/8 HP disposal which started leaking after 8 years. The prices was right, it was easy to install for someone who isn't the biggest DIYer on the planet, and it's quiet. It's chewed up everything we've put down it, including pits, chunks of pineapple rind and lime wedges with no issues.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wd69em Excellent replacement!
I had an existing in-sink-erator badger model installed and it finally gave up the ghost. I have never dealt with replacing one of these and figured I'd be at it all day. After some quick research I decided on this model and talked to an associate at the store and was dismayed at how easy I was told it was going to be to replace. 30 minutes and my new QUIET sink disposal was grinding away!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobT46 Quiet with Quality
My old insinkerator died. Looked at all the data and reviews and decided on the Evolution Select for price point and quietness. The 5/8 HP motor is smaller than our old 3/4 model, however it seems more than adequate for our needs. Very pleased with the choice.
I did the installation myself; how hard could it be? The installation is not hard, but difficult due to the unit weight and the awkwardness of getting under the sink. It took me a trip to YouTube to learn the secret, using the scissor jack from my car to raise the unit into place.
And did I say quiet? Satisfied with this purchase

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarkEB This is THE quietest disposal I've ever NOT heard run!
This Insinkerator replaced an older Badger model when we remodeled our condominium this summer. Due to the new sink being much deeper and the drain holes set much further to the rear than the original installation, I had to work some magic with the plumbing in order to get the new disposal installed. I must say that once the plumbing issues were resolved, the actual install of this unit was literally a snap. I was so proud of my install job, but my pure pleasure was the first time I turned it on. I had to make sure I had actually plugged it into the power supply. It was SO quiet!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrNotMechanical Talk about quiet!
I usually resist writing reviews, but not this time. I try to respond only when the product or service is exceptional or disappointing. This product is exceptional!
#1-Ease of installation- I'm not mechanical at all, and even I got it installed right the first time!
#2- Quiet!- it claimed to be quieter than the lower end models. It was so quiet I thought it wasn't working. Thought I messed up. NO, it was extremely quiet!
#3- Quality- It was heavier and more insulated than the cheaper competition, which is why it was quieter and more efficient.
