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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rico25 Great Product/Easy Install
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 divrdrew So quiet you don't even know it's running!
This is the best disposal unit I have ever owned. My last unit started to leak so I had to get a new one. After looking around, I decided on the Evolution Select Plus. It was a bit more expensive, but came with a much longer warranty and was supposed to be pretty quiet. Needless to say, after I installed it myself (I'm no handyman) in about an hour and turned it on, I was shocked! The running water was almost louder than the unit! It also does a great job of very rapidly breaking down the food. I'm very pleased with this unit and would strongly recommend it to anyone needing a replacement. Spend the extra money and get a much better product.

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 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 3.0 out of 5.0 by Frazzled Quiet motor but still annoying problem
Respect the Insinkerator brand. Love the quiet motor. HOWEVER, the more annoying problem is that for some reason the water builds up in the sink. Its like the rubber gasket opening is way too small for even a normal faucet flow to go down . I have to keep the rubber gasket opening wider with a wooden spoon, inorder for the water to drain while rinsing my dishes. Which is every day-- numerous times a day. Even when running the disposal with the faucet at a lower flow, it stills "backs up" a bit. Not sure why this is happening. I have a triple sink with the disposal in the middle( smaller) sink so maybe that is part of the problem. But NEVER had this with the older insinkerator or GE brand.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OldStew Amazingly quiet.
This product was replacing an older Insinkerator which had developed a small leak due to a jammed chicken skewer which was not fixable. This unit is much much quieter than two previous Insinkerators that we have had over the past 28 years. My wife has suggested that she could live without a dishwasher but never without her disposer.
The only slight flaw is that, due to the unit's smaller size, it does not drain water as quickly as previous models.
