The best InSinkErator I've ever owned.
This model was easy to install, and it performs exactly as advertised. It is quiet, powerful, and can handle tough and stranded food waste. I would like to point out that the Specification Sheet states that this model has stainless steel grinding components and grinding chamber. I have found this to be false. The grinding chamber is made of galvanized steel.

Quiet and effective, once installed
The unit is outstanding so far (it's only a couple of weeks old). A major improvement over our prior 1/2 hp unit. However, installation is not for the timid. We hired a professional, who knew what he was doing, and still had to do some jiggering to get the unit into space previously occupied by the 1/2 hp InSinkErator that came with our new house.

Very Quiet and easy to install
Was so easy, I didn't read all the directions and I forgot to take care of the knock out on the dishwasher connection. Can you put a warning to make sure this is done right on the disposal itself?

Works great
Since this is my first disposal I have nothing to compare it to. I am impressed with how quiet it is and how powerful it is. Installation was done by a plumber that assured me that is was a good unit.

Should have upgraded years ago!
Swapped out an old Badger 1 in about 20 minutes. Very easy install if you are replacing another Insinkerator -- most difficult part is swapping the wiring (and that's not hard at all). Much quieter and more powerful than the old unit. Best of all, isolation mounting system eliminates rattling of pipes that were heard in the basement. Not as whisper quiet as some claims and only been installed for a few months, so can't confirm durability, thus only 4/5 stars

very quiet
I was concerned that this might be noisy with a stainless steel sink. I can barely hear it running. I like that you can take the rubber gasket out and look to see if you dropped a spoon down into it easily.....these things do happen and it's so easy to check now. It is worth the price, very high quality and grinds everything very quickly.

Had to replace old disposal and chose this one based on positive user reviews. It functions as advertised, being quiet and powerful. Have used for about a month now and am very satisfied with performance.
