Questions & Answers


Can i put chicken bones in it

Asked by Derene November 14, 2020

Putting chicken bones into a garbage disposal is not a good idea. Instead, wrap them up in a plastic bag and put them in the garbage can so they don't stink.

Do you need 20 amp service for the Evolution 3/4 hp or is 15 amp service sufficient?

Asked by Trixie November 7, 2020

Hi Trixie, a 15-amp breaker is the required minimum when installing a disposer.

Why is my sinkerator so loud? Sounds like there are chains inside it??

Asked by Wifey October 22, 2020

Something is then wrong I installed mine 4 years ago and other than the occasional grinding when its breaking down your disposal items it is very quiet. I would have it replaced.

Can this model be used with an Air Switch kit or does it have to have a wall switch?

Asked by Susan October 19, 2020

Yes. Mine is installed with an air switch. I don't think the device knows or cares what kind of switch you use.

Why is this called "Compact"? The dimensions posted are basically exactly the same as the Select ...

Asked by David October 13, 2020

This one definitely has a shorter profile than one we just replaced. We thought the device we used to cover the hole and push scraps down might not fit. But it fits, barely above the disposal's blades.

we are reusing our evolution space-saving model , are there any parts that need replacing when reinstalling like gaskets, etc

Asked by Mel September 28, 2020

Hi Mel, if existing parts are still in good condition, there's no need to get a replacement.

Asked by Shirlee September 25, 2020

Can you hook a dishwasher into this garbage disposal?

Asked by Befuddled August 31, 2020

Yes, you can. Here's the installation guide for your reference - Thank you for reaching out!


Asked by Silvy August 31, 2020

Reference your Installation, Care and Use manual to see the length of the warranty term for your model. The warranty period commences from the later of: (a) the date your InSinkErator product is originally installed, (b) the date of purchase, or (c) the date of manufacture as identified by your InSinkErator Serial Number. Using this information will help you determine if your product is still covered by warranty. For example, if your model has 10 year warranty term and the serial number indicates it was manufactured in March 2015, then the product is covered under warranty until March 2025. If you have a receipt stating it was purchased December 2015, then the warranty will be covered until December 2025.

It works fine so far
Customer review from logo
This compact garbage disposer suits the size of my 27" sink cabinet and is reasonably quiet, though not completely silent (as my dishwasher is). When cleaning out the grinder blades in the drain, I noticed that grape stems did not get ground up, but remained in the little drain trap, so I removed them manually and tossed them into the regular trash. I suppose not every food scrap is disposable. The disposer was installed by the contractor who remodeled my kitchen, so I have no personal experience regarding the ease of installation.

Hi royteh45, we appreciate your feedback. InSinkErator garbage disposals are designed to handle just about any type of everyday food waste and Evolution Compact offers a 2-Stage MultiGrind® Technology. The focus is on fineness of grind rather than speed. Check out this link on what food waste can you put in your disposer:

Quiet, Easy to Install and Powerful
Customer review from logo
This disposal is an amazing product. The installation was fairly easy, and quick too. The disposal came with all of the necessary tools, and the instructions were clear, concise, and easy to follow. The only additional item that is necessary for a new installation is plumbers’ putty. I didn’t need this, because my previous disposal was a contractor grade InsinkErator. All of the InsinkErator brand disposals use a universal mounting bracket, that allows you to quickly and easily, remove the existing disposal and mount the new one. As far as the construction, the disposal has a tough plastic outer shell, with sound deadening material underneath it. This disposal is one of their quiet series, and comes with a thick rubber gasket, that gets mounted between the bracket and the disposal. This completely isolates the disposal from my sink. There is virtually no vibration, and no rattling noise from shaking the sink. Even the drain pipe is connected to the disposal in a rubber seal, aiding this unit in being very quiet and almost vibration free. The disposal comes with 2 drain pipes, a straight pipe and a down turned pipe. There is also an area where you can connect a dishwasher drain hose, by simply punching out a knockout. Overall, this unit has been very quiet, almost completely vibration free and very powerful. This unit can grind up almost anything I could throw at it, using its multi-stage process. If you’re looking for a quiet, powerful, well constructed disposal, this is it. I can’t recommend this disposal enough.

Very quiet
Customer review from logo
I bought this to replace an old 1/2 HP unit. The old unit was powerful enough but decided to upgrade when the swivel thing broke on the shredding plate. The reviews said it was quiet and I can attest that it is almost silent. It is a heavy item and I had trouble holding it up for attachment in the confined space under the sink. I used a bottle jack with a board and that worked well. Connecting the plumbing was a problem because...well, it's plumbing. Nothing ever lines up. It would be very easy for a new installation but trying to match pipes can be a pain. My only complaint, and it's a minor one, is the rubber stopper that goes into the sink drain isn't uniform. It has four folds that stick up but only three stay in place in their upright position. One of them always stays down.

Quiet power, cost effective
Customer review from logo
Installation was no different from any other Insinkerator. Straight forward and easy. While the Evolution Compact is not rated as their most quiet model, it is massively more quiet than my previous Badger 5. The Badger 5 was 9 years old and the seals eventually failed. The Compact is quieter than the sink while running water, and I’m amazed at the value of it. It has ground everything from small bones, and onions, to watermelon rind. All without flinching. While the Evolution Compact is a little more than twice as much as the Badger 5, it’s more than twice as good. I’m totally satisfied with my purchase.

Much quieter and easy swap from older insinkerator model
Customer review from logo
The vibration dampening on the Evolution makes a huge difference in sound output. The older unit this replaced was very noisy but not unlike most disposals we have all heard. The Evolution is so quiet that if the water is running you can't even tell that it is on. It does a great job at processing food bits and I hope it lasts as long as the old one (15 years).

Super Quiet and Lives up to Reputation
Customer review from logo
I've had this garbage disposal installed for almost 2 months now and it's working great so far. It's lived up to the reason I purchased it, which is because it was compact and quiet. I would have even liked it to be a even a lil more compact if possible. This thing is super quiet when operating. I have it connected to a flush-mount countertop button. You can barely hear a whisper when it's turned on. I'm having no issues at all with crushing any food remnants that I put down the drain. It's only been 2 months but so for so good. i can recommend this particular unit without any reservations at this point. If I had to pick nits, there are some other cheaper brands out there but I don't know if you get a better product.

Good replacement for my old badger
Customer review from logo
Our badger 9 finally went out. So I chose the evolution with the easy installation method. What I failed to remember was that this disposal may claim to be compact but it is maybe 2 inches shorter and much wider than the old badger. It is also heavier. I could not lift and connect it under the sink myself. I watched on YouTube and saw someone who used a car sizzor jack to raise it up. I did that and then 1-2-3 it was installed. I guess it is wider with more sound proofing because it is very quiet.

Quietest unit we ever had

They spent a large amount of effort to get this unit really quiet. Chops well and fits into a crowded area nicely. Good engineering for a product that really needed some over the years.

Badger 5 failed, decided to upgrade to a newer model!

My badger 5 needed to be replaced all the way back to when I first bought my house years ago. Previous owners abused it, home inspector said it was rusted, and I’m not surprised since I found metal pieces inside (you obviously can’t throw your beer bottle caps down this machine!). I got as many years as I could with the badger 5, but eventually it kept getting stuck, indicating the rust was finally taking its toll on the machine. Surprisingly, after I explained the unfortunate failure, insinkerator offered me a 20% discount on a new evolution model, a true testament to their commitment to keeping customers, whether you’re a hand me down owner (like me) or a long time loyal customer. It’s nice to know that you can count on them to stand behind their products and keep their customer base! The overall installation would have been very easy if I had just planned to replace all the chrome pipes from the very beginning. The evolution compact is NOT the same size as the badger, and I knew this going in based on the specification (6” down from kitchen sink, but only 4” down from the disposals main outlet, which is just about a 1/2” too short). If you are replacing a badger, prepare to buy an 6” extension pipe (1.5” diameter) if you are planning to use the 90 out of the new disposal. It was only short to the p trap a matter of about 1/2” or less, but I wanted peace of mind and no leaks, so I simply just cut the additional extension pipe down to 4” to make everything work, with plenty of pipe inside each joint. Just when everything started to line up, the main extension pipe attached to the p trap broke because, you guessed it, it was rusted out. Glad it happened since it caused me to purchased a clear p trap package and a 1.5” rubber coupler so I could replace all the chrome pipes with plastic PVC pipes. Had I just done this from the start, I’d have saved myself so much time and effort! I also opted to remove the original bracket and install the included mounting bracket since the original was old, dirty, and yep, rusty. I used plumbers putty around the sink opening, you don’t have to press down since the screws underneath will do this for you, but I did it so I could remove some of the excess putty before tightening the sink bracket down. I laid the new disposal in the sink to weigh down the new drain piece while I installed the rest of the bracket pieces underneath. It was a pain to get that metal ring installed to hold the bracket up against gravity, but I did it after leaning into the cabinet, with my back to the floor. The evolution was fairly easy to install, but it was very difficult to mount on the attachment under the sink because I was working against gravity and this thing is heavy! I kept getting the front and one other tab to line up, but that third tab in the back was a real pain until i crawled inside the kitchen cabinet and got an easier angle on it to get all three tabs lined up. Once you get them lined up and started, its easy to use the included hex tool to rotate and lock the disposal into place, which also makes the watertight seal to the sink. The best part is that after you lock the backets into place, you can still rotate the disposal!! This design makes it extremely easy to line up the outlet with your p trap or other pipes, really great!! I did the electric wiring before mounting the disposal to the sink bracket, it’s MUCH easier whether you have a plug or wire it directly, but make sure you have some slack to work with as this will help when you lift the disposal to the bracket and rotate it to line up the pipes. Once the disposal was mounted, it was fairly easy to line up all the pipes and tighten everything down in preparation of the leak check. I only had a few drops on the rubber coupler on the main drain, which had nothing to do with the disposal. A few more turns of the screw tightened up the rubber seal on the pipe and that was that! Love the clear p trap, you can see exactly how the water runs down the drain and know if anything is wrong before it causes a problem! This machine is POWERFUL! It surprised me when I first turned it on because you could tell it had higher HP, (i left the cabinet doors open), but at the same time, it wasnt nearly as loud as the badger. I cant wait to send food down this new unit and see it all flow effortlessly down the clear drain pipes. Really worth all the effort after all these years, just wish I did it sooner!!
