Customer Reviews

Appears Good Quality (Longer Lasting Than 1/3HP)

It appears Amazon has deleted or lost years (2010-2015) of reviews for this disposer so, I will re-post my previous reviews:

If you have an older version of the badger 1, this is a straight fit.

Our last Badger 1 finally gave up the ghost after 11 years of reliable service; so I replaced it with the same model. As long as you don’t abuse most disposal units – by throwing bones or spoons and whatnot down them – they should give years of trouble free service.

Install took about an hour by myself

I’m not what you’d call a handyman, although I’ve been working to get better at that. I will now at least try a home project before passing on it. So, when our 15-year garbage disposal died I had another opportunity. I determined our old unit to be a Badger 5 1/2 HP (this exact item). I didn’t have time to wait for the item to arrive from Amazon so I went to Home Depot and coughed up an extra $20 for the Badger 500 – Home Depot’s branded version of this item. They are identical except for the name & sticker.

Very happy, extremely easy replacement!!!

Was hesitant on a few of the 1-star ratings. But glad I just ignored them!

A Garbage Disposal and a Friend

 on April 13, 2017
By Ryan M
Why am I writing a review about my beloved garbage disposal? Why am I referring to it as my “beloved” garbage disposal? I replaced a different garbage disposal from Costco; it had lasted a few years before giving up the ghost (the metal teeth within had basically corroded and broken off). Even before it met its untimely end, it had been loud and took a long time to grind things up–despite it being 1-1/4 horsepower!

Kinda loud, but very easy to replace

I bought the exact same model to replace the old, broken, garbage disposal. Since it is the same model, I saved the time to install the mount in the sink. I only need to disconnect the dishwater tube and water tube (where the garbage goes) from the old unit, and to disconnect all electric system (black wire, white wire, and the ground wire), then twist the old unit off the sink mount. You will need to save all the components of the electric system and move them to the new unit – it is fairly simple, black to black wire, white to white wire, and the ground. If you hooking it up to a dish washer, please don’t forgot to knock off the cap of the dishwater outlet using a screwdriver and a hammer. You can pick up the cap by reach your hand inside (before you even attempted to install the new unit). Also, don’t forget to insert the new gasket in the new unit. I forgot that step, and it leaks, so I have to do many things again. Other than the fact that my sink is too small to work with, it is a fairly simple job to replace the old unit, with some of youtube tutorials (I watched two) and reading the manual carefully. At the end, the only reason I gave it four stars is because I found it really loud (louder than my old unit) when I turned it on. It is very powerful though.

Awesome Replacement for Existing Insinkerator

 on May 13, 2018
By M. Patel
This was bought to replace an older Insinkerator Badger 0.5HP. The previous model was atleast 7 years old and perhaps even older depending if the prior owner of the house replaced it. We used ours very seldom, opting to use a sink strainer most of the time. Our older model started leaking through the motor housing, which indicated that something rusted thru on the top, not good!

Replaced Badger 1 model with this model. Fits perfectly!
