Rusting after 8 months
InSinkErator said, "This is not rust in the sense that it will compromise the structural integrity of the unit, it is more of a reddish colored thin film." Well, rust is rust, and this should not be happening after just 8 months of use.

Hi HDCustomer, thank you for sharing your feedback. The amount of rust or discoloration varies and is dependent on usage and what may have been put through the disposer. The water quality, use of aggressive cleaning solutions, or even grinding of acidic foods can speed up discoloration. Grinding components with brown discoloration or surface rust is normal and simply cosmetic. Rust will not degrade the performance of the disposer unless it is well outside of the disposer's lifespan. If you still have other concerns or questions, you can reach us at https://support.insinkerator.com/app/ask.

    My new Badger 5 is great!
    I replaced my 39 year old garbage disposal with a new Badger 5. Not only does it take up so much less valuable space under my sink, but it’s so much more quiet when running. I’m very happy with the quality.

      Rusts and Leaks
      Very disappointed in this product, have had previous insikerator model which lasted many years. When the motor burned out, I purchased it again thinking the build quality would be the same, it's not. Only after 4 years of very light use started leaking from the bottom due to rust, even though the unit functions fine. Called customer service they gave be a coupon for 40% off of a new unit, no thank you. Switched over to Everbilt 1/2 horsepower with a 4 yr warranty and lifetime corrosion warranty for half the price.

      Hi Faizi, we appreciate you sharing your feedback with us. Just as is expected with other small home appliances, the life of an InSinkErator® Disposer is entirely dependent upon service conditions, usage patterns, and water quality. The amount of rust or discoloration varies and is dependent on usage and what may have been put through the disposer. Rust will not degrade the performance of the disposer unless it is well outside of the disposer's lifespan. We’re sorry to see you go, but we completely understand how upset you must feel. We hope you’ll consider InSinkErator again in the future.

        You will have to replace soon
        If you like replacing garbage disposals, this may be the one for you. Despite not using it a ton it died before the 2 year mark.

                My InSinkErator Badger 500 1/2 hp garbage disposal only lasted for 10 month.
                I bought this Badger 500 1/2 hp online on September 29 2013 from Homedepot (HD), received it on Oct. 2 2013 and since then had stored it at home as an emergence replacement. When my last one suddenly failed on October 30 2019, I put on this one on October 31 2019. Today, it's Aug 23 2020, I suddenly saw a full bowl of water (in the photo [fig1], I already dumped the water from the bowl but you still can tell water leak from two screws [fig2,fig3]) under the sink and overflowed onto the plastic cloth under the bowl. Fortunately, I always put an open plastic container under the disposal for I am always prepared for the worse situation. So this one only lasted for 10 months. Because I bought it from HD in Oct 2013 but didn't install it until October 31 2019, so I even don't know how to go about claiming that three year warranty. Maybe this one is a lemon one? I put my review here to let people know the quality of Badger 500 1/2 hp. Very disappointed with InSinkErator Badger 500. I still have my original electronic order receipt. The email hidden from the public is my HD account name so you can find all my contact.

                Hi, I apologize for your experience with our product. The life of an InSinkErator® Disposer is entirely dependent upon service conditions and usage patterns, just as is expected with other small home appliances. Leak from the disposer can sometimes be caused by improper installation where the water could be leaking from a higher place like the mounting assembly. To determine where exactly the leak is coming from, please refer to this link: https://bit.ly/2FUeIHr. Our quality control team and top-notch engineers are always testing our products to make sure you get the very best quality. If we find a flaw, we fix it and stand behind it. Therefore, we warranty our products for any manufacturing quality issues. Details about our warranty policy can be found in your product's manual or our website here: https://bit.ly/2YwEQPi.

                  No Plumber Needed-DIY All The Way
                  I needed to replace my disposal, so I bought the same exact Insinkerator model. Didn't need to replace the mounting bracket, so it was a simple step-by-step replacement which took no more than 15 minutes. I had never installed one before. Couldn't have been easier. Couldn't have been a more satisfying project.

                    It was what the plumber had in his truck
                    We had to replace our disposal. The plumber had this unit in his truck. That is what he used. But registering it was difficult. The serial number and model number were not on the box or anywhere accessible. They were under the sink on the back side. Fortunately I had a selfie stick and about a dozen pictures until I could see the numbers. This is hard for a senior citizen with arthritis.
