Badger® 1

Our Badger® 1 model provides a heavy duty motor and space-saving compact design.

InSinkErator Badger® food waste disposers are a reliable and functional choice when affordability is the prime concern. Choose from three models, each with a space-saving compact design.

If you prefer a higher level of grind performance, and significantly quieter operation, check out the Evolution™ Series Disposers.

With an InSinkErator® food waste disposer in your kitchen, chicken bones, fruit rinds, coffee grounds and more can go right in the sink -- where they're virtually liquefied to safely flow into your sewage system or septic tank. You'll enjoy a cleaner food preparation area, and less bagged garbage cluttering your home.

Food waste disposers provide an environmentally responsible alternative to transporting food waste to landfills. And they can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. At capable wastewater treatment plants, food waste can be converted to biosolids and used as fertilizer. Capable plants can also capture methane gas and recycle it as an energy source.  (Check the plant in your area.) Learn more about disposers and the environment.

What's more, if you've never owned a food waste disposer, you're in for a pleasant surprise. InSinkErator® disposers are economical to operate: in fact, they're among the least expensive installed kitchen appliances.

Rated 4.5 out of 5�by 448 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5�by @ Star Rating This disposal is noisier than my old one, and we don't like that it's so wide open that silverware easily falls into it far too often. Our old one had a more closed mouth than this one. January 23, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5�by Easy to Install and Reliable So Far This basic disposer was very easy to install and is performing well (light user). The only negative is the fact it does not come with an electrical cord - not a major issue since cords are easy to purchase but from my view it's lame that you have to purchase it separately.

Rated 5 out of 5�by This is a great product for the money. This is the second one I have purchased. I put one in our previous home, and when the disposal in our current home quit working, I knew exactly what I wanted to replace it with. It is very easy to install and works great. December 29, 2013
