Badger® 5XP™

Our Badger® 5XP™ model provides more power and a longer warranty than the Badger® 5 or Badger® 1.

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 4.4 out of 5�by 146 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5�by Good product It certainly has been reliable. The only reason I wrote 3 stars to ease of installation is because we had a professional plumber install ours. It would be nice if it were able to handle things like banana peels mango skins and tougher food items. December 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5�by Our first Badger disposer lasted 12 years This will be our second Badger garbage disposer. Our first Badger disposer lasted 12 years. We have not had any issues with the Badger product. We rarely have to use the key to unclog or unstop items that did not grind up properly. We are happy. December 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5�by Does the job. The Badger was relatively easy to install and does the job. I replaced another Badger that lasted 7 years. I wish it would have lasted longer because we are not that hard on them. December 26, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5�by Great Easy to install. Made of quality materials and workmanship. Quiet operation. Does the job we were looking for and will buy this product again in the future. December 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5�by This product is powerful This product is powerful and under expectation. The size is right for a family of 4. December 23, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5�by Grinds up food. Works when I turn it on. Loud. It's a garbage disposal. Works as advertised. Had it for almost 18 months and it works the same as day 1. It's loud when it's on but I don't think they make quiet versions of these things. Haven't tried to grind a spoon or a Coke bottle in it and won't be trying anytime soon. December 20, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5�by Very Noisy I had the same model it lasted only 5 years. Replaced it with the same make and model. Can't stand the noise it makes when grinding say a half lemon. Will try another brand when I can't take it any more!!! December 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5�by This is the second Badger 5XP we have owned. The first was installed when we built a new home in 1987, The product always gave us good service.The kitchen counters and sink were replaced this year so we decided it was time for a new insinkerator We are glad we selected another Badger.
