Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hotdoxy Very Quiet!!
I got this unit to replace a Badger 5 that developed a leak after 8 years of service.
This is so quiet that the house must be nearly silent in order to hear it when feeding it in the sink.
While I am not a novice for DIY, I am not a professional and this unit was a breeze to install, the most difficult part had to do with the snap ring. I used a screw driver, and pliers to make it snap into place. I also used a car jack to lift it so that I did not have to hold it up and fasten it into place.

I purchased this to replace a Badger 5 3/4 hp disposal that just stopped working. The instructions were very clear on the order of the steps that need to be taken to install. Remember you will need to purchase separately the Wire connector and some plumbers puddy. Easy install, a little heavier than the old one, but it's manageable to install. Very Quiet! Love the removable rubber drain seal in the new models..

I thought I would have a difficult time installing the garbage disposal because a few months back I helped a friend install one in his kitchen. We had a time trying to make it all fit properly. I was not looking forward to installing mine. I decided to go ahead and do the job and figured if I needed help, I would have it in a few hours. I removed the old unit and after reading the very clear instructions, I felt confident about doing the job myself, which is what I did. It was simple and quick. Following the instructions made the job pretty quick and clean. The unit operates very quietly and efficiently. Glad I did it!!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry This product is quiet as advertised! Great value for the money!
Replaced the original Badger with the Select Plus which greatly exceeded my expectations. Very quiet and able to easily gobble up the usual stuff that goes into the disposer. Due to tight space constraints in a townhome cabinet, I had to reroute the drain lines but installing the Select Plus unit itself was easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Raymd High quality product. Very quiet in operation.
Purchased to replace a corroded other brand of disposal that had seized up. Fitting matched the existing unit so there was no need to change the sink drain insert. The installation is quite straightforward but was difficult in our situation because of a very small access to the undersink area. This made it difficult to lift the unit, see where to insert it into the existing fitting and then secure it. This is not particular to this make or unit but some kind of temporary plastic base to hold the unit vertical and a lever to raise the unit would have made installation so much easier. Once installed, the unit has been brilliant. It is very powerful and very quiet.

This unit replaced a much older Insinkerator with about the same features (powerful, quiet) but whose main bearing was shot. The new model is smaller and even nicer looking. I have slightly more room under the sink now. It's very quiet and a pleasure to use. Hopefully it will last as long as the old one.
Installation was very easy -- I hired a plumber. Be aware that you may need different drain lines if the size of the unit has changed.
I'm not really looking for innovation in my disposer, but if they could make it talk and tell jokes like those animal appliances in The Flintstones, that would be awesome!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ANi4ANeye Quiet, easy install, 6yr in home warranty
I bought this To replace a cracked and leaking Badger 5/8hp. I'll post an update after a few months to talk about performance but as far as installing goes this is what my review will mainly consist of. I'm no handy man but I watched a YouTube video on how to install an Insinkerator and it was really easy. The hardest thing for me was to snap the ring on the mount because it was pushing the flange up despite having a weight on it and the plumber's putty on. But I got it on in about 20 minutes and after that it was very simple. I had to saw one of the pipes because it was a little long. Total install time took me about an hour and a half. I'm a novice and found it fairly simple. I called some plumbers around town and they were charging between $150-200 for an install so I'm glad I was able to do it myself and save $$$ and also learn a valuable DIY lesson as well. So far it's really quiet. I haven't really had a chance to put much food down it yet but again, I'll update my review after a few solid months of good use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveL Great Product and Easy to install.
While I was not thrilled that I had to replace the original waste disposal, after 10 years it was time. It was a piece of cake. Remove the power cord from the old one, hook it up to the new one, remove disposal from sink, place new one on a prop to hold it in place, and with a lift and quick turn...the new one was installed and you can barely hear it run. Forgot to mention that you need to knock out the plug if you have a dishwasher and re-hook the hose from the dishwasher to the unit. Super product!
