Insinkerator Evolution Excel 1.0 HP Food Waste Disposer

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

I recently purchased one of these disposal units to replace the cheap model that came pre-installed in my new home. One of the more expensive disposers on the market, with a list price of $625.00, it performs at a level one would expect of a top-of-the-line model.

First impression of this unit is its sleek and streamlined appearance. The housing is made of brushed stainless steel, and the unit as a whole is quite heavy. It was advertised as having a simple-to-install "Quick Lock" system, but we experienced some difficulties mounting it under our sink. The sheer bulk of the unit makes it difficult to maneuver and get lined up properly. We actually did not lock it on tight enough the first time we attempted installation, and within a week the vibration of the unit managed to jiggle itself loose enough that we had to go back in and re-tighten the fixtures. Once properly tightened, the unit does not vibrate at all.

Outside of installation difficulties, this disposer is fantastic. It operates extremely quietly and emits little more than a low humming noise. The motor power is superb as well. With our previous disposal I was nervous to put anything more than vegetables and other soft kitchen waste into it, but this unit easily demolishes anything we put into it, including chicken and pork bones. Documentation for the disposal states it uses a 3-stage grinding system, which reduces kitchen waste to a liquefied state (so you don't need to worry about clogs).

The peace of mind I get from this unit alone is worth the sticker price. I can feed virtually anything into it, and it will dispose of the waste quietly and efficiently with no risk of clogging up my sink. For cooking enthusiasts like my husband and I, this is a wonderful appliance and I will never go back to cheap, noisy disposals ever again.
